Star boat idea

Post by tiger »

hey, i just came to the idea of the Star boat to may be introduced in vsk. wouldn´t that be nice? i think it´s a quite different boat, with different boat characteristics. although it probably isn´t possible to simulate the whisker pole to sail wing-on-wing on downwind courses i would guess there would be good racing with a new looking vsk-boat.

this is a suggestion to the ones that are keen in modeling 3d-boats. i had a look in free-ship, but its somehow far too much for me. :oops: i would love to model a boat, but .... you know. :D

thanks for listening anyway...

I don't see much scope for the Star in trhe game, for the reason you mentioned. Goose-winging the jib downwind is the major part of it's downwind characteristics, A realistic model would be impossibel with the current config. of the game unfortunately.

well. If it's a good idea, then Ill forward it.
Can you post details about the boat?
I think, it used to be olympic?
3 (wo)men boat?
keel boat?

Can you give detailed pictures and good polars.
Also it would be important to see what sails they use.

P.S.: Also it would be good to have real life videos.
At the moment, we are working on a Swan 45. To improve its realistic movements, we use Videos, that are put online by the NAutorgroup and the class assocation. And some are on youtube.com

Looks good Tom. Sailing characteristics might be a bit of a challenge!
