Replica of the recouvrance in Unreal Engine 5
So I start the digital construction of the schooner to make it sail again no matter what. A work designed for real time under the wise eye of Jason Gullion (Electronic Arts) during my training at Think Tank Training Centre.
I saw the ship come to life a second time, the hull, the sails, the bow and received the help and expertise of Scott Mac Tavish (HellBent), Joe Crawford, Sean Disero (HellBent), Stefan Oprisan (Ubisoft) and Jude Godin (BlackBird)
3d model of the Recouvrance.
La Recouvrance is a replica of a small, elegant and fast sailing warship from the 19th century, the Aviso. It served as a liaison for the command and ensured communications. The ship is now a topsail schooner, based on a model designed by the naval architect Hubert in 1817.
The origins of schooner rigged vessels is obscure, but there is good evidence of them from the early 17th century in paintings by Dutch marine artists. Top sail shooners are rare today, only a few are still sailing in the world.
Symbol of the city of Brest in France, La Recouvrance has been its ambassador ship for over 30 years. Recouvrance was originally the name of one of the city’s districts, and still bears witness of pre-war Brest. During the Second World War, the battle of Brest was particularly destructive.
After two weeks of bombing, the city, a military port and therefore a strategic occupation zone, was reduced to dust. Only ruins and memories remained. There was a time when some sailors prayed to “Our Lady of Recouvrance” to come back to land, for others, a few decades later, it is a symbol of rebirth, of recovery.
