    I would love to see their source for this info. And I'm suprised a battery capable of supplying 60kW of emergency lighting isn't readily visible on the deck plans. A battery of this capacity in 1912 would have required a room all to itself.

    I would like to see it too. They seem very confident in it, however.

    Given their demonstrated commitment to authenticity I would imagine they have a good reliable source but this would have to be previously unknown to every other expert and researcher including many on this forum who have written extensively about the electrical system.
     
  4. They mentioned it in the live-stream, and to answer it they basically said "people dont believe us, but it is true". Not a very convincing argument but they mentioned Bill Sauder in the sentence so who knows as Bill is pretty good with facts

    The team behind Honor and Glory has certainly gone into the history and design of Titanic and I really hope they do secure the funding they need to complete this fantastic looking game.

    Over 6 years and counting.

    I think this game has missed the boat if you'll pardon the pun.

    They've claimed to have multiple companies wanting to invest, and negotiation is the only thing left to decide (something that takes probably more time than finding the investors).

    I've no idea what the lead time from concept to commission is for a fairly big game but over 6 years seems excessively long in the rapidly evolving tech industry.

    Interest in the Titanic probably peaked in the centenary year and it's difficult to imagine where this game will find its place in the wider market.

    Modern gameplay is more geared to online, multi user "dip in and out" style games. I can see it as an app style game where you can enter the ship and explore a basic package for free or subscribe for wider access and an add free experience.

  9. At the very least our contributions have made it so around 80% of the ship is already done.
    The team said if they cant secure the funding it will A) Be released as a walking demo where you can explore the ship in full or B) They will stop treating this as a full time job and it will be completed but just on a smaller scale.

    Il admit its been alongggggg time since the project started and i find myself wanting it to proceed quicker, but i have to remind myself this is basicly 3 dudes for most of those years going at recreating this.

    At the very least the time is allowing them to make sure they get the ship right, a rushed game will always be a bad game and its the same for history

  10. If you ask me, a walking demo would be a nice consolation to have in case the project doesn't pan out.

    Indeed. They should market it as a historic vr rather than a game. There is still a market but for as much effort I doubt they will see the handsome awards they would have several years previous. I 100% support them though. They have made many many many great attributes. I'd love to sit and conversate with them.

    2 Opinions on their work:
    Noteworthy and quality content. Very good design and you can tell they care.

    I can't say the same for their potential customers and/or supporters. They ran a video giveaway for Olympic and Titanic memoribilia half a year back and many people got their YouTube accounts deleted due to unintended spamming and our unfamiliarity with google's spam detection algorithms (you had to explain why you wanted the prizes in the comment section, in which we were encouraged to comment it as many times as possible, of course not thinking that they had not thought kf the consequence of this). The result? When contacted, they essentially washed their hands of the matter.

    I still haven't gotten back my YT account which was very important to me. So while it's a great piece of work as an artistic title, this Titanic buff is not going to be buying it anytime soon. At least not until they help me get my account back.
