Class 37 Racing Cruiser

I have brought my Class 37 in world to test SL uploads, LOD and prims etc. I am happy with how it has turned out, and the overall quality/prim balance. The boat hull is essentially finished.

I have not scaled it for SL in any particular way, the lenth overall (LOA) of 43’6″ and the deck length (LOD) remains 37′ and I think the size will be perfect for it’s intended use.

You are welcome to come down to the boatyard to come and see it. Feel free to comment and give feedback.

Shipping Crate


Again, I needed a crate, so I made one. This went much better. After I found a plan, making it was easy, just a bunch of loops and extrusions to the box. Texturing is where this comes alive. Pine planks and pine reinforcement. Getting good textures makes better. Not Fragile is the BTO homage, the 69 comes from the prototype photo I saw.


I needed one of these for the shop. So I made it. The project troubled me somewhat as the prims were high. I’d made too many faces. Building each plank separately in Modo – like at the back behind the slate. Eventually I simplified it, making 3 faces overall, so a texture can be dropped onto the slate easily, and the rest managed by the UV maps. Maps I say as the wood and slate were 2 objects, and the rope and shadow a third. So three textures – four if you count the slate on the other side .
