The Pembroke 1.0

18th-Century Sailing Ship

    The Pembroke


    The Pembroke is a fully-rigged 18th century frigate. Designed for agility and speed in battle, and with long-range potential, these were the backbone of the Age of Sail.

    I've now given my first complete jbeam project, and BeamNG's first ship, a proper spit-shine. New features include:
    • Selectable and skinnable mainmast flag, with the options of the White Ensign of the early 18th century Royal Navy, the Spanish Burgundy Cross*, and the once obscure and potentially inaccurate but iconic Skull-and-Crossbones of pirate fame.
    • Sinking, via detachable and damageable buoyancy pods.
    • Three rows of functioning broadside cannons
    • Slight extra pass of detail. It still ain't pretty, but it's a bit easier on the eyes than it once was.


    Place the .zip file under Documents>BeamNG.Drive>mods. Do not extract. The primary means of moving the ship is via the wind app, as the sails do function more or less like real sails. Likewise, they break like real sails, so don't make the wind go faster than ~50 MPH. Otherwise, a low-power thruster is available via the Y key. Rudder is powered with the normal steering keys, while cannons are pivoted with T for up and G being down, and fired sequentially with F for port and H for starboard.

    Oh, and special thanks to Nadeox1 and SergentFido for helping me to get the skins working.

    *I'm not actually sure that the Burgundy Cross was ever used on any Spanish Naval Vessels, but it looked cool enough and easy to illustrate.

    The first boat, and after three and a half years, still the best one by far. However, I've noticed it is EXTREMELY slow. Even with winds of 60mph combined with the thruster, I can't get her going faster than 4 knots when these ships could typically see speeds of more than 10 knots. Perhaps age has finally caught up to the legendary Pembroke? Or perhaps I'm just an idiot who did something wrong without knowing...

      It's not really age, but probably just physics. BeamNG doesn't (and for a variety of reasons, can't) simulate fluids realistically. Not to say that the Pembroke is of the highest build quality to start with, but sadly it's not possible to get it working near as well as the real-world counterpart.

    I've loved this mod for ages, and it's probably one of my favorites. The amount of detail put into this ship is incredible. The sinking mechanics are realistic, and the cannons are effective. Wind sailing is very fun. I'm sure this will go down in BeamNG history as not only the first ship, but the best.

    it sinks when i spawn it... but the cannons work, the trusters work, expect it don't float.

    Love it. Shooting a cannon at it from across a custom self made map just for this specific thing is amazing. I opened the mxm grid map that is completely bare, it's endless I believe or I haven't hit the end yet. But in the editor, I lowered the plane to add water than the opposite direction I raised it quite a bit and I can't see the boat from where I have the cannon, but after a few tries and reaiming, I have it down. Shoot, some time goes by and bam. Sunk my battleship.
