    Ship Design Contest



    You have an artistic eye and can’t wait to give the imperial pride a new coat of paint? That one great idea for a design haunts you seemingly forever? Your pencil is ready to bring us a cool story revolving around an infamous ship or you just want to get crazy with a design paper?




    Use any medium you like to pitch your idea, here are some things to keep in mind:


    – As the design will be implemented as a model variant of the Imperial Pride, your submission needs to be based on the community vote winning cruiser.

    – Even though the Imperial Pride is a steam cruiser with medium defensive capabilities, you can decide if your variant is a fierce battleship, true pack mule or something entirely different.

    – While we like you to go all in with your cool ideas, keep in mind we are still talking about a ship design, which should fit into the setting and to Anno’s gameplay.

    – If you want to work with loose stats or special skills, you can just use definitions like “HP – Medium / DMG – High / MANOUVERABLILTY – Weak etc.” or just work with some sort of a points system.

    – Surprise us!

    The deadline for submissions to the Ship Design Contest is Monday 6th of August


    Have fun and good luck!

    This is my variant of the Imperial Pride, the Phoenix or PH03-NIX (if the name change). The hull is a bit longer than the original.
    The Phoenix is a medium sized warship but can be used as trading ship due its spacious cargo capacity.
    Because its a bit longer, it is a bit harder to manouvre. But a bit faster due to the bigger engine.

    P.s: sorry the ship isn't in colour but I feared I would ruin it. (it's the best I can)

    Mod-Edit: I've cleaned your post up a bit, you can edit your post using the + icon and then select Edit.

    Nobody said you could only send one entry in, so here is my next ship.

    - Very good armor
    - Very good attack
    - Slow
    - Bad manoeuvrability
    - Low cargo cappacity

    Special: (or not so special if it will be integrated in multiple ships )
    - Mortar / Howitzer
    (Can shoot very far in all directions but not up close, has high damage, has long reload time and is inaccurate on moving targets.)

    And here is my latest special idea of a new ship.
    It has
    - Good speed
    - Little firepower
    - Little armor
    - Good manoeuvrability
    - Low cargo capacity

    Special:
    - Can place Sea-mines
    (The mines would do high damage only to large ships because the large ships get deep enough in the water to hit the mine. Placing of the mines would take some time.
    The ship can only carry a limited amount of mines at a time for example 2 before refilling in the harbor. And after placing a mine you would see a symbol where you've placed it
    so you wouldn't sail on it yourself. There should also be a max number of active mines per mine-ship like 10 or so)

    P.S. all my ships are not very detailed. That's because I want the detailing and the balancing to be done by the real pros (if one of my ships is chosen of course)

    Imperial Flagship

    Here's my suggestion, the Imperial Flagship:


    I'm imagining it as a more expensive and larger Battleship, much better at fighting than the Cruiser is, but also more expensive than the fighting prowess alone would warrant. This is because in addition to being a Battleship, it would have some support abilities. These support abilities could be something like buffing the attack rate of nearby ships, but it could also be increasing the culture rating of the Island it is docked at.

    I imagine it as a ship that would fit the type of player focusing on their Zoo, World Fair and Decorations.

    the Leviathan
    For this ship I went digital, it's a big warship capable of leaving a lot of destruction.

    It has
    - very high firepower
    - very good armor
    - very slow
    - bad manoeuvrability
    - almost no cargo capacity

    It has room for a howitzer in place of the second front turret

    Hi ! I have a question : the ship must be based on the exactly same design as the Imperial Pride or must be in the same style ?
    Can we modify the structure of the ship or just little elements like color etc. ?
