what is that crane - care to share it?
on the new map "The Ocean", that one would fit to one of the harbours to load from ships directly to the trains..
I dont agree - this one got already accused of having too many beams and be laggy - if you build bigger ships (that work) most ppl will not be able to use it..
Also - what harbour is there, that could be used with bigger ships than this one..
I dont know of any that are publicly available..
The ocean will be able to handle the princess, the offshore crane and in parts also nordia express - but that ship is already kind of oversized for ROR
about tieing the princess..
nope - not by now - ror does so far not have a N/B-structure for harbours, that could tie ships..
I thought about building one - but we will see..
the tie-problem caused the harbours in the ocean to be come u-shaped..
so you can keep the ship there by letting the thrusters run..
looks to me like a valid solution..
in starling islands harbour, I used ones for testing the atlas tug to push a larger ship in position - but it's not a valid solution unles you are in multiplayer with inter-player-collisions turned on..
one player would need to stay in the tug and push at the right time in the right direction during the loading - otherwise both will drift away..
oh - if I may be blunt - need a bigger ship? - build one :-D
I will definately test it out and proppably use it..
as long as there is a harbour for it..
the huge one from NSH is an odef - open the zip, copy all files you need to your map and place it where you want..
that should be possible with ease..
however - I dont see the point in loading a ship, that can't sail away..
