    Wip November Entry: Cruiseship - Fantasy of the Elements

    I wanted to do something like this for some time now, so I decided to give it a shot.

    The Fantasy of the Elements is a medium sized cruise ship (165m = 540 ft)

    Current status, deck shapes of the lower and upper decks (the two lowest decks still missing)

    This is the basic idea, how the complete map should look like, once it is completed, this map is being produced in Inkscape...

    At the moment the lowest deck in top view does not correspond to the sideview, which will be corrected next - after that I will place the most important sections. Engineering, bridge, cinema/theatre, pools, restaurants ...

    It is a challenge - I have a vision of how it should look when it is finished and I am curious how far I get the next weeks...

    So, I started right with one of the tougher parts in the whole deal. The cinema/theater which stretches in the bow section from H-Deck to J-Deck. So parts of it are on three decks later...

    Just a screenshot, faster than exporting - as you can see I am working with inkscape on this one. Working scale is one unit per cm...

    What you can see below is from H-Deck

    ... stairs and elevators placed - corrected the number of stairs in the cinema - at a height difference of 32 cm only one step is needed between them, not two...

    exported current version of I-Deck

    Well so far, you've just crushed my chance of winning. Seriously, looking good.

    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    went from working on the theatre some decks down into engineering. The 'Fantasy of the Elements' primary powerplant consists of four 12 cylinder diesel engines which drive generators for the engines and all other powerhungry things aboard ...

    another quick screenshot

    Started on some of the crew quarters, these are for 120 crew members (bunk beds!) and 28 higher ranking staff.
