    Thanks! I noticed that one of the turrets on Tre Kronor had a slightly darker tone, fixed in an update.

    The Sverdlov Nif sits at 480 something kb currently, I'm looking to make it less but I have already edited the model down from 50 000+ polys to under 9000.

    The download database won't update with the new zip file for some reason. Here is the file.

    Absolutely beautiful unit, tested just minute ago and it really does look amazing in game:)

    Are you going to do also more modern ships? Theres so few that it would be great to have them also.

    I converted the Zara Class cruiser from a Rise of Nations mod, and spent around 4 hours retexturing it, what do you think? :)

    Wow I'm loving these ships!

    I try to add complexity and greater strategic depth when it comes to a naval standpoint in my mod as well as representing every era naval-wise. Artists like you make it more fun with more ethnic diversity so thankyou MatteM!

    Looks like an earlier naval era ship, Pre-Dreadnaught maybe?

    Yep that's right, there is an old representation of the Emden being used in mods that was ripped from some other game but it doesn't really look like the actual ship. This one one is reworked from
    a 70000+ poly model so its a lot of work.

    Great looking work again. Will test De ruyter and Zara asap:goodjob:

    Hope you will upload SMS Emden.
    It looks like that model is 1916 SMS Emden wich was königsberg class light cruiser. So its not pre-dreadnought era ship, its WW I era ship.

    Thanks!

    I do think that the model I'm working on is the 1907 Emden:

    The one that is already made is I think a königsberg Class however

    Hmmm, but your model have 4 funnels and Dresden clas had only 3. But the later königsberg class actually had also 3..
