Hi all, names Sgt_Brony and yes I am a Brony and fan of the my litte pony show and am pround of it. What this thread that I making will be for imput ideas for my Kraken perk of designing my very own ship wreck, and you can help. I'll be submitting ideas and what not about my wreck and be looking at imput ideas from you the community, but still remember that it is my ship and the finall outcome will be my descision.

Hello Sgt_Brony, looks like the Funding counter did not include the full amount of your contribution?, it only counted is as 500$ and that is for "Sea Admiral" not "Kraken"

http://divegame.net/Indiegogo/Perks.jpg

I know that because after my contribution the counter was at
$ 18,530 (Funders / 114) then I saw 2 more for $10 each going up to
$ 18,550 (Funders / 116)

So 19,050 - 18,550 = $ 500

I guess the webmaster will have to check it.

Regards,

George

Hey George, check the badges under my name. The early pledge badge is for re pledging my tier reward after the indiegogo campaign didn't reach it's goal. Plus I already got an email for the ship building process. This thread is for design ideas both mine and those that I might consider from the community.

That makes sense, thanks for the explanation :) didn't know what the Early pledger was exactly about, though you got it just now...

If I was to write the design note for a ship wreck, I'd first check with the designers if there's enough "normal" wrecks scattered around. And only if that's the case I'd draft a cruise ship in 40m depth that sank after gashing a good part of the hulk on a rock. Just my 2ct.

@Sgt_Brony; you can choose whatever you want, if you want a crashed alien UFO in the bermuda triangle, so be it: it's your party! :)

I recognize that ship wreck from the news. But yea, going with the UFO might be going a little too far for my design

Hello Sgt_Brony,
Good to see you here on the community forum. This is a great way to share your development with the rest, but like you said, you’re the boss. Your decision will be final. In case you already got some thoughts or ideas we would love to hear it from you.

At this time we don’t have a wreck site for you to name, so you can start with the design of your ship wreck. This means the type of ship, location, depth, plants and animals. It’s up to you to decide the size of the ship, but if you want a cruise ship or any other large vessel it will take more time for us to create. We will support you as much as possibly to create the best result and design.
We are looking forward to hear your ideas about your own diving site. :)

I think I'm going to go with a more classic design type like like an old Pirates ship or other types of massive sailing ships. That way I can include the one design feature that I would like, the front will have a carve figure of a unicorn's head and running down the sides of the boat towards the back will look like a set of wings. Insperation is that of Princess Celestia and Luna from MLP.

Oh, the wreck that I'll name will be a regular name, and the ship I'm designing will be a shout out type deal to the fandom that I'm in.

You've got some great ideas about your dive spot. An old and classic vessel is an excellent place to dive into and around. The figurehead of a unicorn on the front is a great way to implement your own style and I think the wings will do well on the side of the ship. We will definitely use some inspiration from your favorite show, but as you already know, we can't copy anything from it due to copyright.

Now you have some ideas about you own spot, It's time to look at some details. Like the vessel you want to use. You definitely want a more classic vessel, but is it a galleon, a brig, a cargo ship or maybe an inspiration on one of those. What is the size and position and is it in one or more piece?. Feel free to post a sketch or more ideas/details about the ship, or you can let us help you with that.

I'm leaning more towards Galleons and I'll reasarch images on the web for design ideas. But I'm also reasearching mythical fictional ships. As for implementing some of the design from my fav show, I know that it can't be directly related to it due to copyright but I'm thinking more of inspired from it.

Position I'd think having it reast on the ocean floor upright like it would still sailing and in one piece. Maybe evan have it slightly lean to the side agaist a small rock formation that is still keeping it upright. I'm also thinking the area be tropical clear waters with tropical plant and animal life around it.

This shipwreck level design... is it going to be part of the vanilla game eventually or will it be an optional, downloadable thing that players can choose to dive into. If its not going to be part of the vanilla game and only part of the creative community I dont think copyright issues would be a problem since no money would be made from the map. What will the map eventually become in terms of the game itself?

When the game gets released it'll be part of it. Also if your like, you can give some imput about the ship design, color and name to help out with this project

Personally, i'd love to see a Titanic replica wreck.
it would be great from a design point of view as there are lots of details plans of its interior and lots of photo's of the actual wreck for them to work from, plus from a gamer's point of view its huge and iconic.

The backstory could be fun to write also, a rich billionaire wanted to recreate the elegance and luxury of the ill fated RMS Titanic builds a full sizes replica, unfortunately the passengers got more of a authentic experience than they bargained for when a freak (yet predictable) twist of fate ...yadda yadda yadda...

Its not even beyond the realms of possibility as they are actually in the process of building a full sized, fully fitted Titanic, check the website here: http://www.titanic-ii.com/

That's a great idea, you should try and convince one of the other ship wreck builders to do it or you can up your perk to design the Titanic how you'd like to. Me I like classic Galleons and ancient mythical ships. The designs of them are more appealing with a grander allusion and mystery of what secreats they once hold.

Our concept artist went a little crazy, but how about this first impression of the Sgt_Brony MLP Galleon?

OMG, I just can't stop laughing when I look at this pic that my sides feel like they are going to burst. Ok, lets edit this shall we to make it more real.

1) The wings, flush with the side of the ship (ornate like) with it fully spread back by the captians quarters.
2) The head reminds me WAY to much of the ship in the anime "One Piece". It needs to be scalled down to be almost like those pics of mermaids and other figures that adorn the front of the ships. Also the hair can be flowing down both sides and to the back.
3) I was maybe thinking of either a two or three sailing mast instead of one.
4) Can't have a ship without cannons :)
5) Overall nice concept

on a side note Luna is best princess pony ^_^

@Sgt_Brony What about the wreck location? I would suggest a tropical (Caribbean) ocean environment like this:

what is your opinion?

You hit this one right on the mark. This is the type of waters that my ship would of sailed on before sinking.

The scenery is so beautiful, if this effect can appear in the game, the play is like a kind of be personally on the scene feeling.

I'll "Try" and draw some ideas up for myship over the weekend to help with designing it. But I love how creative (and fun) you guys can get with your imagination.

Small concept update for now.

We're planning to set up the layout / ship wreck (broken up?) of the sea floor next week.

@Sgt_Brony; If you made some wreck design we would love use them!

Same here, every time they post an update on the game development (the trailers) it gets better and better each time. Be interesting to see what the final product (game) looks like when they are finished.

Oooo Nice, give me a little time like Monday of neek week (news years party and a busy weekend schedule) to think about it and get bacl to you. But so far it's nice, and like I said I'd like to give her some of the art credit for it ^_^ she was a tramendious help.

I have to say nice. Where do we find it in the game? :P

up

It's not in the game yet, just getting design ideas before they start building it. It's part of my tier reward when I help backed this game during its croawdfunding period. So any suggestion is greatly appriciated.

Going to try and post some of these images I found on the net for some insperation ideas for my ship. Note, I'm a novice at understanding text format.

Oh, one thing to add/improve on the ship is maybe improve on the Captians quarters. Like making it more ornate.
These are neat

What does everyone think and I hope I did these right. (side note a preview post/reply button before submitting would be awesome)
