Post news RSS Boarding Preivew Video

Video showing off the atmosphere and mechanics of ship boarding!

Posted by on

After a fairly long struggle getting the ropes to work how I'd like, with a couple of revisions, rewrites and big changes I'm finally at a point where I can show off a video of what boarding is like. So the first thing you should do is check that out!


One of the things I really like is the new combat animations by Papa Lazarou. You can check them out here. I think they work really well. At some point I'll tweak them to move the right leg forward, left leg back and turn the body, so that the pose is more fencing like.

The content shown in the video is still fairly work in progress so you can expect a full range of tweaks and fixes.

After this, as I'm pretty sick of programming, I'm going to begin on making some more ships! I can't wait to get the boarding and sailing scaled up, as the sloop is currently the smallest ship planned.

I've programmed in support for up to ten ropes, and there can be as many boarding planks as I like - so expect some absolutely massive and very chaotic boarding battles on the bigger ships.

Some people have suggested that I add a donations button. While I'm very busy with lots of different projects including University, so I can't promise donating will make the mod come out faster, extra beer money wouldn't go unappreciated! So you can donate HERE. Thanks!

Anyway, I hope you like the update. Please leave your comments :)

This is one of the best boat mods for M&B I have ever seen

I mean, I honestly thought that a good boat mod for M&B could not be done
You, good sir, have proved me very wrong

Amazing work

Holy moly! Never heard of this mod. Looks like a brand new game! I can't wait for this. The whole swinging over to the other ship part reminds me of the POTC movies and whatnot. Looking forward to the next update.

STUNNING work.

The work with the ropes is outstanding, and the new animations look more fluid and natural than the defaults.

The bar just keeps getting raised. WOW!

The soundtrack to the video was inspiring. Could you refer us to its source?
