View Full Version : Does anyone know of any good reference material/maps for ships?

I see plenty of rooms and buildings around here that show how they look indoors or as a top down, but does anyone know of where I can find ship plans or what a ship (that pirates might use) would contain and have inside of them so i can draw it up?

Ya know, that's a good question. I've never looked for such a thing but my first thought, obviously, would be to google up some ships plans or what we call deck plans. My second thought is to use something like a cruise ship plan and just take out things that wouldn't be on a pirate ship. Many of these cruise places have a layout of their ship in a brochure so they probably have something online. So with that said, leave the bottom level for storage, next up would be crew and kitchen and mess hall, above that, uh I dunno, maybe officers quarters and gunnery.

Mind you, these run the gamut of Older ships, modern and Space.

And then these:

Pirates typically used Sloops, Corvettes, Brigantines, Barques and Galleys....if you google each of them followed by 'deck plan' you'll probably get something more specific to your needs.
