    Its more a Brig and I think, if the plans are realized, a 3D the model will look like this:

    Just as it is. Sloop of War is worth a confusing term. Brig captures exactly. :onya

    Ah, Sophie! I'm sure that ship held a special meaning for him in later years.

    both of u are right she is a brig ,but would be rated as a sloop of war this apllies to all ships up to 18 guns wich were to small to be rated as warships , if i remember correctly

    We do have an HMS Sophie in PotC, which is a remodeled and improved stock game model.
    Still, I'll be the last to complain about a new one being made. :cheeky

    Confusing ship designations are part and parcel of the Age of Sail - various great powers classified their ships accordingly, thus a sloop of war (which may be termed a corvette in France) as aforesaid bears no resemblance to a sloop.

    Similar 'confusion' exists with the bark or barque - the latter is simply an English classification for any 3 masted ship not falling under any contemporary ship category; thus a French barque longue can mean an entirely different sort of vessel than a Bark (this is reflected in Build Beta as we know and historically-derived naming didn't cause any problems yet)

    I do not need obj format, but they can obj. let it be imported to Maya and then export directly into gm. There is a plugin for Maya. ;)

    No, there isn't. The plugin was made by Akella, who used Maya to make the actual game models.
