BEAUTIFUL!!! I can even seen the dome cover over the lounge! You did an amazing work and now it's all even more tragic that the Olympic class type of liners never took off. Aesthetically, at least, they looked gorgeous.
Hey guys, found the perfect thread to post my own "Olympic class" derivative design.
Well, I proudly introduce to you the RMS Regalic, the finest four-stacker to ever sail the oceans.
• Gross Tonnage: over 50,000 tons
• Length overall: 904 feet
• Length between perpendiculars: 870 feet
• Beam, molded: 96 feet (maximum width is 96.5 feet – over boat deck)
• Hull depth: 66 feet 3 inches
• Normal draft: 35 feet 6 inches
• Normal displacement: 57,000 long tons (block coefficient = 0.673) @ normal draft
• Service speed: 22 knots (25.3 mph)
• Maximum speed: 24 knots (27.6 mph)
• Propulsion Engines: diesel-electric powering three propellers
• Passenger capacity: 1,500 passengers
• Height from keel to boat deck: 96 feet 6 inches
• Height from keel to top of captain’s house (bridge): 109 feet
• Height of funnels above boat deck: 86.5 feet
• Total height from keel to top of funnels: 183 feet
Just to state this openly, I am not merely posting this as a sort of "fanciful" project, because I intend to actually design and build this ship in the future.
Tell me what you guys think of the design so far...
NEW OLYMPIC CLASS — RMS Caesauric
Another Olympic Class ship, named RMS Caesauric derived from King Caesar Augustus. After Titanic sank, White Star Line, decided to build another ship, but they knew that it would not going to be the largest but it surely be the world’s luxurious ship at the time. Caesauric had been through safety improvements along with the RMS Britannic. Including the raising of Watertight bulkheads up to C — deck, extending the double hull on both sides and adding lifeboats. the two ships were also have few similarities on their features, except that the Caesauric had no gantry davits. Both two ships were requisitioned as a hospital ship by the British Army just before they’ll have their first voyage as a transatlantic liner. Caesauric made as successful voyage as a hospital ship, when the war ended, few of her sister ship’s fixtures and fittings was put into her, except the Grand Pipe Organ, it was put into a museum instead on her.
- Gross Tonnage: 50,320 tons- Length overall: 899 feet*- Beam: 95 feet - Hull depth: 65 feet
- Normal draft: 36 feet 6 inches*- Service speed: 21 knots*- Maximum speed: 25 knots
- Propulsion Engines: diesel-electric powering Two 3-blade wing propellers and one 4-blade centre propeller
- Passenger capacity: 1789, maximum - 2,687 passengers*
Lifeboat: 30 Lifeboats ( 20 clinker built wooden boats, 4 wooden cutter 6 Collapsible boats)
Lifeboat Capacity: 2,010 passengers
Decks: 11 ( A — G )
Maiden Voyage: May 10, 1916 (as a hospital ship) March 20, 1919 ( for the first time as a passenger ship)
(Keep in mind this will make more sense by knowing in this hypothetical universe, the Britannic survived the war.)
As a celebratory gift to the public after the war, the White Star Line released concept art of the fourth member of the Olympic class: the RMS Oceanic (III)!
Launched in November 1921 and put into service in August 1922
Added features not found on Olympic or Britannic:
(A shrunken Smoke Room, with the excess space replaced with a dedicated First Class Library.
(The Reading and Writing room extension converted into an open-air Coffee Parlor.
(A separated bridge, similar to Queen Mary’s. [probably a bit questionable for an Olympic class ship but...whatever.]
(The pool now lavishly decorated with dark woods and a light-green Greek styled tile design.
(Redesigned First Class corridors.
(A cloak room in the elevator foyer on D deck.
(Updated galleys in all three classes.
(The Third Class General Room has been cut in half, with the excess space replaced with a library for 3rd class filled with language-to-language dictionaries and books about the “new world”.
(More public lavatories.
(A more fully enclosed 3rd class promenade deck, with those separate windows with the retractable glass.
(A more Aquitania-styled look to the superstructure.
(And finally, Forecastle deck expansions along the tops of the sides of the forward well deck.

Propulsion: Four Triple Bladed Screw Propellers
Capacity: 3654 Passengers and Crew

RMS Iconic would have taken on a strong resemblance to the RMS Britannic of 1915, having major improvements such as
an extra propeller, rearrangements of her eight gantry davits, expanding existing passenger spaces and adding an entirely new floor,
extending the Olympic Class's regular deck count from 9 to 10. Making the fourth funnel functional, and increasing her speed to 27 knots.
With an addition of more private bathrooms available to all classes, allowing Iconic to have a longer lifespan, one of the main reasons the RMS Olympic
of 1911 was scrapped was due to the insufficient private bathrooms avaliable to the passengers at the time.

Story: The RMS Gigantic was built at the replacement for the lost Titanic, many changes in her design were changed but over all she still resembled the original Titanic, during construction war broke out and she was requested to be completed and turned into a troopship, in 1919 she was handed back to White Star and converted into her planned form, most of Britannic's unused interior was put into her, during her post war career it was just her and the Olympic, Britannic had been lost in 1916, in 1935 the Olympic was sold for scrap and she was now on her own, in 1940 she was requested for use as a transport, in 1943 she was torpedoed twice but survived due to the double hull and raising of the watertight compartments, in 1947 she was returned to Cunard White Star, in 1950 due to the ships age she was sold off for scrap, she sailed to the yard with the Aquitania, on her final voyage.
