1. I use Adobe Photoshop CS but most use MS Paint or Paint.NET

2. ... um, well it depends on how much effort you are willing to put into drawing the ship nicely. :)

3. The same way you draw ships...

Please re-read Rule #1 of the Forum Rules!

1. Do your best to spell correctly. Not everyone here speaks the best English and so writing in terrible grammar won't help them (or us, for that matter).


This means no "u", "urs", etc!

Allow me to translate (My boss sucks at spelling)

If you design your own ships, can you design your own weapons (missiles, guns) or sensors (Those are important too)?

The Answer, Turkishnavyguy, is yes. But, if you do, make sure you save a plain copy that isn't obscured by railings, shading, etc so that someone else may be able to use it if they like it, without spending an hour restoring it.

Let me Google that for you

That's not what I mean <_<

What I mean is...WHY? MS Paint is already free. There's a Mac equivalent of MS Paint too. Seems rather super-pointless to me.

Well, in Paint.NET, the layouts are very usefull:

- I'm a newbee (and lazy more than newbee...) so it's easier to work with sequential and consecutive layouts

- If you want to render the evolution of a ship, or the differences between ships of a same class, it's very easy to do it with different layouts.

- I'm now trying to draw a sail ship (a schooner), my first one, and I think I would not be able to do it if I worked without layouts.

For the rest:

- you must install .NET Framework to run Paint.NET - as for SketchUp (No: for SketchUp Pro, you must have TWO versions of .NET Framework installed !). Working on my ageing PC, it's very heavy: the (noisy) fan starts at the opening of the soft...

- It's not possible to save personal parameters (the worst point for me)

- This F*** software always starts on the first layout, the basic one, so the most important one.

But I Like it (even if I know consider to try Sketchup instead).

I like the ability to use layers and the magic wand feature. The drawback to layers is that (at least as far as I can tell) everything on the same layer will be drawn "Opaque" like the default setting in MS Paint. Also, when a ship is a Work in Progress, like Dreadnought, I can have each major component on a layer, so I can edit them and not effect the rest of the ship.

drawing has never been relevant of the size and shininess of the pen you are using ;)
Colors migth be different thing, and the sole thing I envy in expensive/heavy drawing programs is the better ability to adjust colors. But as Shipbucket is designed so that the crumblesome things like MSpaint can support its idea of color pallette, there really is IMO little excuses for using Photoshop & co. in such simple pixel drawing...
...except the lazyness allready mentioned here, and IMO what can be worse sin in shipbucketeering than beeing lazy ;)
Perhaps if you all would do the hard way and work with the single layer that MSpaint offers you, we would start seeing stuff not made so hastily as the patience that MS paint requires gives you also lot of time for the subconscience to think "what the hell Am I actually drawing this time"
