Can someone give me a basic model for a speed/dolphin boat? (Closed)
I have been reading all the questions, and still, nobody has given an actual template... So I was wondering if someone could give me a good idea for a boat. I have tried a lot already, but my fastest boat goes 57.5... If you can at least a general idea like stats, where to put things on the ship, and how long and deep the ship should be... Pictures would be about the best, and if you can post a Picture in the gallery on battleship craft, that would be great...

You just need to make it really really water resistant, like really sharp prow and sides

You should buy the standard Skelton and the angled boiler. That alone goes about 70-75 knots. But you need to remove the ballast and add the double ballast so it won't tip. After all my weapons and a bridge my model goes about 65 knots

Here is how to do it, my ship goes 194,5 which is max speed.
The 3rd boiler is just cosmetic, only 2 angled ones are enough to do the trick
the lighter blue are heavy ballast, the other blue is 1/2 ballast.
Hope this helped for the speed boat part

Put four propellers on it - all against the flat bottom of your ship. Arrange them like so - themiddle two should be two squares apart. The next two out should be one square from that. All of them should have exactly two blocks long surrounding them on either side, and one in front. Back and bottom are open. Then put a small rudder behind each propeller. This is the fastest prop configuration I have been able to build. With an angled boiler and a small to medium ship, this usually gives me at least 95-100 knots. If the armaments are minimal, it's more like 150-195.

You can break the max speed with a perfect design. I've made 212 knots

Replace all part of your ship with 400 light weight armor and my ship is a twin yamamoto it has been duplicated with 1000mj and 789 stability

Heres a model that goes 194.6 : do a 5 x 14 or five wide and 14 long. then at the BACK, do a 3 by 6 or 3 wide and 6 long (all 600mm lightweight or 400 normal armor). Do 2 layers. Put a angled boiler at the place where the 2 parts meet. flip the ship upside down and delete the middle row on the back part (one layer) and 4 more in a straight line in the big part. put a propeller at the end of the line and put a rudder at the front of the line. should go really fast and turn well. THANKS

Never broken 200, but I just got 195.6 with a super simple and cheap design. 400mm armor makes a platform big enough for an angled boiler, surround two propellers on three sides, then extend a line of blocks four or five long out back to keep it from flipping over. Balance the weight and throw some cheap torpedos on front for a dolphin boat style speed demon. Kinda looks like a stingray

Heres what i did to reach 192.4 with almost no moneyi entered the password for the japanese ship and made it 1 square wider, on the bottom were the propellers are at i put 4 propellers wide from the front of the ship to the back no spaces between them, i then enclosed them all got me to about a 70 knots but then i decided to leave 2 lines open in the middle (from side to side) and went to like a 75 so after making some tweeks i got up to about 180 by living every other row open should look like... | | | | | |> (the spaces u can see the propellers) after tweeking it some more by putting lighter materials got it to 192.2 the only thing i spent in was for the angled boiler
