This pack currently contains 5 vintage sailships, either built after a specific historic sailship or of a more generic kind. Actually you get 10 models. For every sailship comes in 2 versions, one with full hoisted sails and one with meticulously furled sails.
The sailships currently included are
- Swedish Turuma archipelago frigate
- Russian archipelago frigate Svjatoi Nikolai
- Russian 22-bank Baltic galley
- Dutch trade and slave ship «Leusden»
- A Dutch 'generic' sailship

The original models are from either the Museovirasto Finnish Heritage Agency or Poly Haven. They come with a CreativeCommons free use license that even includes commercial use. For detailed credits and legal notes look up the Documentation folder. So feel free to use the 3 ships wherever and whenever you want. And Hail to the original creators!
All models are high poly and offer many details in a close walkaround. But don't worry, I aggressively LOD'd them. For the close-up LOD with 4K PBR textures you basically need to walk on the decks. ;-)
Here I need to add a sidenote: I spent a lot of time (in fact most time) on the LOD work. Unfortunately it proved to be very unsatisfying and disappointing, especially when testing in VR. After I had come across a stack of complaints up to the recent past dealing with that subject, I froze my efforts. My current advice is to crank 'Object LOD' up to the max (if you can and dare) and not bother about glitches when transgressing some LODs.
Please note: The Swedish Turuma hoisted sails version is fictional and not approved by the Finnish Heritage Agency for historical correctness. The Turuma came in only one version, with furled sails. I made up an hoisted sails version by adapting and attaching the sails of the Nikolai. For being an improvised adhoc version it looks cool enough.
As a «Bonus» I included 3 period wooden crates, all very beautiful PBR models found on Poly Haven (TreasureChest, wooden_crate1 & 2). You can place them onto the anchored ships or on a pier.
