Titanic Fanatic 93

Hi I'm Will, I'm nineteen years old and I've been interested in the Titanic since I saw the 1997 film Titanic, when I was four years old. I decided to make a Tumblr and post stuff about the Titanic. I hope to join the Titanic Historical Society someday.

And for all these reasons, I’ve decided to scalp you, and burn your village to the ground.

A little treat for our followers’ patience in these last few weeks of apparent inactivity: A render of the dome chandelier above Titanic’s Grand Staircase. A larger version of this image without a watermark will soon be released as one of a number of desktop backgrounds.
Despite inactivity on our Facebook page and Tumblr blog, our team has still been working hard behind the scenes. Our interior models are still being made and updated, we’re starting to do some more in-engine work and improvements, we’re working on perks from our Indiegogo campaign (those we can do now, at least), and we’re working on other aspects of the project as well, including our rendering capabilities, this image being one of the products of those efforts.
Thank you all for your patience! We will eventually have more for you!
Visit Titanic: Honor and Glory on Tumblr, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and CryDev for more about the project.

Exploring Titanic

A while back there used to be a video game project called "Titanic: Lost in the Darkness". The goal was to recreate Titanic in its entirety and make a game out of it where people could play through a story or just explore the entire ship at their leisure.

"Lost in the Darkness" no longer exists as it did. However, most of the team members and modelers from Lost in the Darkness, after the events that ended that project, went on to create "Titanic: Honor and Glory". Honor and Glory has the same goals as Lost in the Darkness, even exceeding them, and builds on its roots from the days of the first project. Honor and Glory uses the same models you see above, though they have since been updated to be even more accurate and detailed.

The Honor and Glory team is still working on improving the models and getting them into the video game engine (Crytek’s CryEngine), so what you see above is from the days of Lost in the Darkness, scenes from some early in-game tests. Click the images to see which rooms they are in the descriptions.

You can see more of Titanic: Honor and Glory, and what became of the amazing work you see above, on their Tumblr blogFacebook Page, and Youtube channel.

Look at all these Titanics!

I mean, seeing as how every single 4-funneled liner must be Titanic. Can you guess which one is actually Titanic? If you know nothing about Titanic, the answer may surprise you.

Finally, I’m almost done with this model I’ve been building of Titanic’s First Class Verandah Cafe and Palm Court. I’m making it for a game modification called ‘The Mafia Titanic Mod’. The only thing I have left to do is the vines that grew on the trellises.

The Mafia Titanic Mod is being made as a freely-downloadable modifcation or add-on for the PC game ‘Mafia: City of Lost Heaven’. The mod will feature a full recreation of Titanic’s exterior and will also include large areas of the ship’s interiors, such as all the first class public rooms including the Grand staircase, second and third class areas, engine rooms, and elsewhere. The mod is being created by a team of talented modelers and modders, with Robin Bongaarts (AKA - MrRobville) as the mod creator, writer, and main modeler, and myself doing some of the modeling, which up to now has included the First Class Dining Saloon, the Turkish Bath Cooling Room, the First Class Smoke Room, and now the Verandah Cafe and Palm Court, as well as elements of the Grand Staircase. The project has had some good luck recently with the addition of a knowledgeable game modder, and it is looking up to be a pretty amazing development. The Mafia Titanic Mod is still a work in progress. It may take some time yet to complete, and is not yet available for download.

My 3D model of Titanic’s First Class Verandah Cafe and Palm Court.
It took me forever to make, mostly due to procrastination and having to work on this other project, but I finally finished it. I made it for a game modification/add-on called ‘The Mafia Titanic Mod’, which you can find out more about by clicking here.

Renders of the First Class Enquiry and Purser’s Office aboard the Titanic. This area is currently being placed in-game, and it will serve as an important area in Titanic: Honor and Glory’s story.

  • Images 1-2: Enquiry Office. The Enquiry Office was located on C Deck adjacent to the First Class Entrance or “Grand Staircase”. Like the reception desk at a large hotel would, it is through this office that first class passengers conducted much of their onboard business, including the submission of various requests, the purchase of postage stamps and train tickets, hiring of motorcars at ports of call, and the sending and receiving of telegrams. There was a post box for passengers to drop letters in, and just outside the office were three queue dividers and a brochure rack.
  • Image 3: Telegram tube. The brass object in the corner of the wall was a pneumatic tube that ran between the Enquiry Office on C Deck and the Marconi Office on the Boat Deck. It was much like the pneumatic tubes you see at modern banks, except it was used to send telegrams between the two offices. A first class passenger could fill in a telegram form at the front desk (paying by the letter), and the staff would put it into the tube, sending it quickly to the Marconi Office. There, a wireless operator would transmit the message in Morse Code to wherever it was supposed to go. For incoming messages for passengers, the wireless operator would receive the message in Morse Code, jot it down on a telegram, and put that into the tube, sending it to the Enquiry Office. From there, the telegram would be delivered to the recipient.
  • Image 4: Safe. In the Enquiry Office was also a large safe, likely manufactured by Ratner. If first class passengers had money or other valuables they did not wish to keep in their staterooms or carry with them, they could check them into the Enquiry Office to be locked in the safe during the voyage.
  • Images 5-6: Purser’s Office. Adjacent to the Enquiry Office was the Purser’s Office. Both offices operated essentially as one, with the Enquiry Office acting as an extension of the Purser’s Office. The Chief Purser was in charge of the ship’s general administration, and was essentially the onboard business manager, accountant, and chief clerk. Along with his assistants, he handled the filling in of freight and passenger manifests and other bookkeeping matters. The Chief Purser’s other responsibilities included the answering of passengers’ questions and concerns, the resolution of any problems they may have, and the prompt and satisfactory fulfillment of any passengers’ unusual requests. The Chief Purser had to be familiar with the entire ship and everyone on it, and as a result of his duties was probably the second most well-known person on the ship, after the Captain. The Chief Purser aboard the Titanic was Hugh R.W. McElroy.
