We're really glad you like the port!  I'll admit I was a bit skeptical about it when I first saw the concepts but now I'm using it every day.  I just wish there was a way to shoo the mice because clearly the cat isn't going to do it.

I think the whole "a sleeping cat and two squeaking mice" is just suppose to be a fun joke of the port, lol. I like it.

AFAIK, as long as you clicked on the Participate button before the collab is over, the port is yours to keep, even after the collab is over.

Is it possible to have a different kind of "port" that has ship model on a stand in a more formal environment?  You can call it Captain Quarters, has a nice ring to it.  I believe it would be popular.

I really like it because we get a great clear look at the ship that isn't blocked by water or other objects.

What I like is that you can zoom in much closer than the other ports, and examine the instruments through the bridge windows.

@HazeGrayUnderway Posted a really good idea for that. I hope it gets passed along to WeeGee. Would make nice port without the anime vibes for those who don't like it.

The ships are amazingly detailed.

Maybe I can finally find that fritz X on the Roma!

I love the concept, the visuals are a little too cartoony for my liking though.

Alright, got my port, heard the mouse make a noise and had to race back here.

The 2 mouse noises played are taken DIRECTLY from Everquest (which might have used stock sounds itself meaning these would just be the same stock sounds).

I saw someone mention an awesome idea for a port inspired by it: a museum hallway. The ship is a model instead a glass case, with all the nice stark bright lighting you'd expect in a setting like that. Pretty simple (especially compared to some of the city ports), but it would be very classy, and show off the details of the models wonderfully.

Wow, I'm amazed that you recognized the sound. It sounded like just a generic mouse squeak that you can hear pretty much anywhere on some media with a mouse, to my ears.

I have a good ear for familiar audio.    I can pick out celebrity voices in commercials and stuff instantly as well, just saw a commercial the other day that was definitely Fred Savage.

That squeak though, you hear it a LOT if you've ever played Everquest, its burned into my memory forever.

I've gotta say, I'm impressed at jags_domain's ability to screw up every single sentence he types, even if it's only 4 words long.

Captain's Cabin. That would be a nice room port to have. Althought this is an Admiral's Cabin, it's a good one to look at for an idea: renown7.jpg

Agreed. The mouse's squeek is definitely annoying over time. I'd much rather have an occasional cat purr.

For talk like a pirate day why not have an old pirate ship captain's quarters with a similar display of a ship - for those who want variety. 

I do love how the ships are display in the AL port, don't get me wrong, I just know I'll get tired of it.

I saw the silver for USS Mass and the WV and it was like the crown jewels fancy does even begin to describe it.

They could really do somthing with this. I know its a port but it does enhance the experance for many of us.

Yes, it really makes me want to click things. It reminds me of the Hearthstone boards where things are interactive. Any chance of this happening to ports?
