I can address these concerns more fully when I'm not on my phone, but most of my design choices come from either ultra-high-res images of real container ships (e.g. Mærsk Triple-E, OOCL Hong Kong/Germany, CSCL Globe, etc.) or SB drawings of the same (e.g. ALVAMA's Mærsk McKinney-Møller). A lot of yo...

question: where is the reactor? because if you are going to refuel her, you need to access that area from above..... (also, modern crews kind of want to sleep away from anything nuclear, I think :P) Reactor sits underneath the above-deck containers in the bay immediately behind the superstructure, ...

If anyone's curious, this is the governmental seal at the stern of the ship:

She's more or less finished at this point. I ended up creating at least half a dozen new parts for her from scratch, which was fun. :) This one is the ultra-large 20,000(+) TEU variant, shown here mostly "empty" with a stack of containers for demonstration purposes. https://s10.postimg.org/ekoaqsmtz...

Indeed. I made a dedicated thread, as I'm aware that a lot of work ended up getting "lost," and this will help people recover much of it and back it up elsewhere.

Cross-posting in case my gravedig in the other thread doesn't catch enough folks' attention. I found two browser extensions to get around the Great Photobucket Hotlink Racket of 2017.

Convevyional prop is the cheap and always working solution. The ship will be expensive, so a ordinary prop would keep cost down from having kort nozzles. Roger. I'm also probably going to go with a more conventional single-skeg, single-reactor configuration. The Triple-E's dual-skeg/engine design, ...

Ha, I didn't mean to be a tease. This was more of an inquiry thread than anything. Does the hull so far look kosher in terms of shape, superstructure/reactor placement, etc.? Also, is there any benefit to using kort nozzles on a vessel of this size and type? I can't find any precedent in real life, ...

I will be transferring this to a Personal Designs thread soon, but I have a pretty good outline of what I want my vessel to look like. I'm starting with the 20,000+ ULCV, as that seems the most straightforward to nuclearize. I'm still not totally decided on 1 vs. 2 reactors, but they are to be naval...
