    I'm reposting as the original got lost in the revert. If you responded I didn't see it soooooo......

    I'm trying to figure out how to build a boat using the customizing tool and ingame items. I want it to look like a partially built boat. I don't have any rubble so that's not an option.

    Anyone have any experience with this or have any ideas?

    Also I want the overall size to be about 10 tiles long by 5 tiles wide.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks so much.

    Logs can be laid end to end to create a keel and you can then lay Barrel Staves (fished up from MIBs as pre-chest loot) along each side for the spars. Boards can then be arranged around a crate placed where the bow of the ship is supposed to be, giving the appearance of the "hold" already being in place (and functional!). You might even experiment with using one of the long tables as the "floor" of the ship, and doing everything already mentioned around the table (then raised up) to give the appearance that the ship is up on "blocks" during construction.

    One thing I noticed when doing something similar--items that stack and have a "double" image when the stack contains more then one item do NOT appear different in the EC like they do in the CC. Stackable items appear the same as ONE item, and thus if you include two items in a stack to take advantage of the different graphics, it will look different in the EC.:sad4:

    Test your results in both clients.
