As our first character model to be nearly completed and recently revealed, we present Captain Edward J. Smith of the RMS Titanic.
The Smith model was created by a very talented modeler who has also done Thomas Andrews, who we may show later on.
This is only a basic rendering of the character model, and not in-game with final, realistic materials, so the beard and other elements will not look like this in the final game. Once the model is rigged, animated, placed in-game, and polished, we will have a life-like recreation of Captain Smith the player will be able to interact with in-game.
We also discussed briefly the character model, as well as a short campaign we had to raise funds to continue having these models made, during our 102nd anniversary podcast, which you can listen to here.

The story of the Titanic is very personal to each person who hears it, almost like a biblical story. This giant ship, all these people in the middle of the ocean, this iceberg, the warnings. What would it have been like to be there on that fateful night?

Evening on Wednesday, April 10th, 1912, Titanic pulls into Cherbourg, France. Too large to tie up at the docks, specially built tenders ferry passengers and their luggage to the ship. On the bottom, a famous Ken Marshall painting you probably all know. On the top, an actual picture taken of the Titanic as it passed through Cherbourg’s seawall. Did you know the tender pictured in the painting, the Nomadic, has in fact been fully restored to her former White Star Line livery?  Did you know she had a running mate, the SS Traffic? The Nomadic was larger and built for first and second class passengers to be ferried, the Traffic for third class and luggage.

"The Titanic itself lies in 13,000 feet of water, on a gently sloping, alpine-like countryside overlooking a small canyon below. Its bow faces north and the ship sits upright on the bottom. . . . There is no light at this depth. . . . It is quiet and peaceful and a fitting place for the remains of this greatest of sea tragedies to rest. May it forever remain that way and may God bless these found souls.” Robert Ballard
