Chateau Robida

Chateau Robida

By Carmen

In the wake of HMS Dreadnought’s dominance over all earlier battleships, the French Navy was forced to decommission a great number of naval vessels, including those recently built with obsolete main armament.

Inspired by the works of Victorian-era illustrator Albert Robida, a private organization purchased a decommissioned battleship hull and converted it into a floating fortress for resort use.

Christened the Chateau de Robida, this 164 meter pre-dreadnought was converted into a floating monument celebrating French heritage and architecture. Finished in alternate bands of snow white and Ravenna gold, and topped with a miniature representation of the Eiffel Tower, the vessel would not be out of place in a Victorian fairy tale.

In addition to the restaurant Le Petit Eiffel, the resort ship also plays host to an open-air engagement party, 3 rose gardens, a shopping mall, two observation towers, and a memorial park.

As a museum of the pre-dreadnought age, Chateau Robida is also equipped with various exhibition weaponry open to the public including a 340mm (13.4″) main battery, 203mm turrets and 164mm casemates representative of period warships.

Courtesy of a British inventor’s contribution the ship is also equipped with experimental radio navigation hardware plus hidden launch tubes for aerial torpedoes.

  • General Detection System Question(s) September 19, 2017
    I've seen Lathrix mention "tweaking" the DS for fast or slow targets and that each weapon type needs different set ups. What does that mean? And what are all the bars and crap on the system when you press Q?

  • Sparrow Multipurpose fighter September 18, 2017
    This is a cheap fighter project I made to design a simple yet somewhat effective combat aircraft. The sparrow was the result and will be used as a carrier-based fighter, torpedo bomber and escort fighter. The variant I will post is the default low altitude fighter version, although it is easily modifiable with multiple variants […]
  • Make LUA consume power/electricity September 18, 2017
    The small lua block should have a slider, as how much energy it consumes per code command. The code is slower at low power consumption, preventing lag, and quick with ineffective power consumption at the high ranges. You could also include a 3*3*3 big lua computer, which has mid-level code execution quickness, with fixed reasonable […]
  • My hovercraft doesn't respond to enemies September 18, 2017
    So I'm attempting my first hovercraft in the land designer, but my ship doesn't react when I spawn an enemy. It will shoot the weapons, but it won't move. Any one mind taking a look at the blueprint to see what's up?   Land.blueprint (Size: 53.26 KB / Downloads: 1)

  • Player weapons, new maps, and other things September 18, 2017
    I have a suggestion for a new player weapon, a sniper rifle with three customizable rounds. Each round has 6 modules using the same system as the ammo customizer for ships except you can use the rounds in a weapon held by the player. Obviously this will use the same calculations as the normal system […]
  • Jotunheim-class Battlecarrier [2.01] September 17, 2017
    Note: I am still fairly early in the campaign and not really rushing it so, all munitions are currently focused on HE or flak damage to blow the mostly wooden DWG craft apart. I have attached two blueprints of the ship, an automated version for fully toaster-controlled battles and a manual version with all auto […]

  • F-22 Raptor September 17, 2017
    "The F-22 is the world’s most dominant fighter, but potential adversaries continue to develop capabilities intended to challenge the ability of U.S. and allied air forces to gain and maintain air superiority. With that in mind, Lockheed Martin is dedicated to working with the U.S. Air Force on a robust F-22 combat enhancement program to […]
