It is my privilage and pleasure, to bring you my new -SINKABLE- ship.
-The RMS Honourable-
This is the successor to my previous map, The Royal Pilgrim.
She’s twice as long, twice as wide and twice as tall as the Royal Pilgrim. With a VAST amount more space to explore through out it’s hull.
And the key feature that she shares with her predecessor, yes, you guessed it! THEY SINK!
Through a little creativity and a system I created, both my ships are the most realistic sinking ships for the source engine.
Enjoy, at your peril!
Also a heads up to all those film makers in the Garrys Mod community, I’m inviting you to make a quality trailer of this map, the one I choose will be featured on this page!

(Above - The button that begins the sinking process)
On one stormy night, in a moonlit port town, you step into a tavern filled with the sound of rowdy sailors. The air is thick with the musky smell of tobbacco and body odour. Seeing no comfortable crowd for you to sit amongst, an old maritime adventurer beckons you into a shady corner of the tavern.
You go over to his table and take a seat, not knowing what to say to the old character. He eyes you up and down for a moment, and then stares into his tankard of ale.
‘Have you ever heard the story of the Royal Pilgrim lad?’ He doesn’t give you the chance to answer, ‘Well I know of a ship that suffered the same fate as she on that cursed ocean…’
Not a word has come from your mouth, you decide not to bother.
'She was a strong, glorious ship. She served many years and took many from one end of the world to the other. Her and her captain conquered many oceans and many stormy nights, through peace, and wartime. They both prevailed, only until, one night…
They say there was something eerie about that night, as if they were waiting for something to happen. It was unatural… That was the last time she would ever sail above the dark abyss.
Do you know her name lad? Her name was the… RMS Honourable.’
Tips and Advice
ADD TO THE DRAMA:
Play some dramatic or sad music before you begin, I recommend some dramatic music from the “Titanic” movie. It will definately make things more interesting.
To start the sinking process, you must go to the Bridge, where the wheel is located. There is a golden button in the center, press it and get your life jacket ready!
This can be quite a hefty map to run on some computers, if you do not have a good computer, do not expect good performance.
TO AVOID GETTING STUCK:
I have done my best to make this ship as player friendly as possible, but I can only do so much with the Source Engine.
You will be prone to getting stuck on this map as the ship lurches more and more, using crouch and jump is a good way to break out of this.
Crouching + Noclipping can also prove a smooth way to “Pretend” to move through the ship as it sinks.
DO OR DIE:
If you’re going to publically show this map in ANYTHING, PLEASE give me the credit. I put a lot of effort and time into this map.
