Hi Henrik, What I've seen is that the AI ship traffic 'bounces' on the swells in a fixed orientation, there is no bow pitch or lateral roll.  Is this an area for improvement perhaps, if it can be accomplished at all?

The movements have not been too realistic in previous versions either, the lateral roll has never been there, but the bow has gone up and down, and this I understand is lost now.? As I do not have P3Dv5 and will not get for some time it would be nice if you or someone else can post a short video with the ships in stormy conditions with waves 😄 Do all the ships behave in the same way or are there execeptions?

Great pics Henrik, what made you choose the Canberra out of interest? My mom sailed on her in the 60's so a bit of personal nostalgia when I saw those pictures. I've lots of her old photos and even souvenir postcards etc somewhere.

Hi Ian,

Three reasons... First it is a unique design - which I think defines the ship design of the end of the 50'ies and start of the 60'ies... The curves - which is a pain to model - are really typical. I hardly found one straight line in the design - I just did a Shell oil tanker from the  same period and she has the same curves. Even the wheel house is not square ..

Second, I am well into expanding the project with a number of classic ship models spanning the period 1955 -1985. These are the ships I used to see when I as a kid went to the local harbor. Below a slightly earlier ship - the Songkhla of the East Asiatic Company.

And third - the Canberra was part of the British task force to recapture the Falkland Islands which will be part of the upcoming Classic package.

So do we already have some P3Dv5 users that can tell us something about how the ship traffic works in v5? Any problems?

It works without problems 😄 Movements if you activate waves are a little funny, but so they were in previous versions of P3D, 

Meanwhile I continue with the development of more classic ships:

Sorry for not being a lot present here, but life is busy... however, the project continues and the number of classic ships increases rapidly through my own and team mates efforts...

And talking about Kai Tak... There will in the classic version both be the first generation of hydrofoils and the last of the traditional Chinese sail ships...
