I don't know how I didn't find this grf before! There aren't enough ships in the game and I get a serious gap between sailing ships and everything else (I don't use FISH because of the lack of new ship spread: everything is available in 1870). I am happy to see this set, thank you for making it!!!

Hurrah! Over a year later, I've finally got some notable progress on the Kalakala. Holy hell is this ship hard to draw, I can't even count the hours I've put into this thing so far, and I'm only done with 2 views! :shock:

All that hard work has paid off though, the front diagonal view turned out even better than I thought it would. It may not be 100% proportionally accurate, and a few details may need to be ironed out, but it's good enough to show off :)

The original, rear-facing view has been re-shaded according to andythenorth's suggestion last year, and I've just drawn the front facing view today after literally dozens of failed attempts over the last few months. With the front view completed, the remaining views should be a little easier to draw, and the next release of the grf should finally contain the Kalakala! Please let me know what you think, good or bad! :)

I'm cooking right along, I just finished up the side view last night, just need the two vertical views and I can copy-paste-flip the remaining views (with adjustments of course). If you've actually got something you need painted, drop me a line, I might be able to help out soon. :)

Time for another severely delayed release :lol:

This time I've included two new ships to try to make up for it. The first one is the aforementioned Kalakala, finally polished up and ready to play, available in 1935. The second boat is a small ship called the Fairy (yes, the ferry Fairy ;)). Like the Beaver it is also refittable to all cargoes, and is introduced in about 1853. Since there is literally no information about this ship available (at least online), I just made up all of the stats. Because no photographs of the ship exist, the graphics also had to be drawn based on a single grainy photograph of a painting of the ship someone drew from their research (and I was lucky to find that!). So, historical accuracy isn't to be expected with this ship ;)

I also fixed the moving graphics on all of the ships since they were not working properly (the wakes stayed visible while loading).

I'm releasing the set in .tar format this time so I can include the license, readme, and changelog with the grf. The readme contains a list of all the ships currently included and when they become available. This .tar can be placed in the newgrf directory just like before. Note that version 0.4.0 is incompatible with previous releases.

Enjoy! :)

I found a possible bug.
0.4.0 No updates from a saved game with 0.3.0.
Is it compatible? Is it upgradeable?

At least on my computer does not update.

---

He encontrado un posible error.
No actualiza la 0.4.0 desde una partida salvada con la 0.3.0.
¿Es compatible? ¿Actualiza la versión?

Al menos en mi ordenador no actualiza.

That isn't a bug. It is intentionally incompatible with older releases, I simply forgot to mention that. I'll add it to the post above. :)

Thank you very much for your great work! Love your ships already and will post some screen shots later on, just starting a new game.

The Kalakala may be the most famous vessel to ever sail the Puget Sound, but the Steel Electrics were arguably the most prominent. Originally built in 1927 for the Southern Pacific Railroad for use on San Francisco Bay, the Steel Electric ferries were some of the largest and most advanced ferries of the time. After only 13 years the ferries became obsolete due to the construction of bridges crossing the bay, and they were put up for sale. In 1940 the 4 vessels were bought by the Puget Sound Navigation Company and moved north to their new home.

For over 65 years the Steel Electrics faithfully plied the waters of Puget Sound, transporting generations of people across the water. In 2007, inspections found cracks in the hull of the M/V Klickitat. Subsequent inspections of the other three boats revealed the hulls of all the Steel Electrics were severely corroded, and the Coast Guard ordered them off the water. After 80 years of service, passengers boarded the Steel Electrics for the final time, ending the reign of one of the most reliable vessels to ever sail the Puget Sound.

------------------

Below is my first attempt at the Steel Electric ferry, completed almost 2 years ago.

Check out http://www.evergreenfleet.com for detailed information regarding WSF history and boats. It's been an invaluable resource when researching these boats. :)

I love this so much. Lord knows we need more shipsets. I was so upset when I discovered this only days ago and realised it'd been here all this time, just sitting there waiting for the clickin'. It goes great alongside NewShips and the Squid. Not sure how balanced the costs are with them, though, but money isn't really a problem in this game anyway.

Looking forward to that update!
