    Default 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.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

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

    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.
