You might wanna have a look here before you start a Titanic model as this one is really good. Interior included.

I would also add that, as far as models in the Virtual Sailor engine are concerned, building the "entire interior" of Titanic, even on a minimal level of detail, would be a bit daft. I only built the equivalent of a few areas in my model, and that took quite a few polys. Unless your exterior model is stripped down to the barest and simplest of details, and your interior rooms are mostly just empty, simply-textured boxes, it's probably not going to go over too well. People have enough problems as it is getting my old Titanic to work. But one can always try, I guess, so good luck on your project if you decide to go ahead with it.

It's also worth noting that when I eventually build my new Titanic for Virtual Sailor, it'll have new, more accurate, and more extensive interiors. At least I hope I'll be able to fit them in, or even finish it. I'm tied up right now in work with Titanic3D, Lost in the Darkness, a yacht, and maybe another thing or two.

ok your right i guess so what parts do you suggest i build instead more or less than your model, bearing in mind that i am able to run your model and pick up sometimes 45 fps in the less detailed areas and about 35-40 in areas like the forward gsc also how do i make the propellers turn. Thanks for the support from everyone as i am actually inspired by you people who build things like this, and i just wanna give it a go myself as i am quite good at 3d modelling

P.S I got that titanic 3d thing you mentioned, it's AMAZING it makes me want the mafia titanic mod to come out sooner, and do you know when that will be released
