SS France was a Compagnie Générale Transatlantique (CGT, or French Line) ocean liner, constructed by the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard at Saint-Nazaire, France, and put into service in February 1962. At the time of her construction in 1960, the 316 m (1,037 ft) vessel was the longest passenger ship ever built, a record that remained unchallenged until the construction of the 345 m (1,132 ft) RMS Queen Mary 2 in 2004. France was later purchased by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) in 1979, renamed SS Norway and underwent significant modifications that better suited her for cruising duties. She was renamed SS Blue Lady and sold to be scrapped in 2006, and scrapping was completed in late 2008.

Whoooo! Nice! :D

I would like to ask three things:
  1. The most obvious one. When is this going to be done (roughly)?

  2. Why are there command-blocks in the bowling hall?

  3. The third and most important one. What is your next ship going to be?

1. i cant say, i want to improve the hull first, then i'm going to build the interior
2. because it looks like this...yeah sometimes things look strange on the france
3. i'm going to make the britannic maps for my next movie

Well since at a list I always answer with a list.
  1. Haven't checked out the hull in real game, so I don't know how does it look like, but it seems nice so for me it doesn't need a lot of changes
    1. Those french... you are so damn right... they always design and build weird things (e.g. this and the battleship Dunkerque)


  2. What are these britannic maps going to be? Like titanic? e.g. 20 minutes after it hit the mine, then its capsizing, wreck? If you mean this, I would vote 'Yes'
The last thing I would like to know is about the new white star line ships. Would have been interesting to see a fourth tyrannic-class. Or a tyrannic in world war two (e.g. tyrannic is a troop carrier, iconic - a hospital ship... something like this). Both ideas. Are good. I think. Think about it.
