  1. Makes me wonder if they can have two separate designers one for the AI and another for the player to utilise. They will need to fix the issues with the AI so that they can expand upon the designer otherwise it will just litterally have to rely on a tonne of models for added variation.

  2. Yep, it's the bloody limits. I fear a fair few of these completely unbalanced placements are a result of limited barbette slots. Frankly, if the AI is the main reason why we can't have unlimited barbettes and superstructure placement... it would make more sense to design 4 or 5 basic gun and superstructure layouts for each hull that make logical and historical sense for the AI to use, and then restrict it to choosing armament, armour, speed and systems.

  3. TL;DR? The way the game treats HE v AP remains too crude and produces obviously flawed results. This is in part also due to the armour scheme being too crude. Yet it's also because of the simplicity of the "penetration of HE" calculation and a somewhat poor differentiation of the genuine differences between AP and HE, smaller and large calibres. The kraken in the bath (elephant in the room really didn't fit)? Navies all but eliminated HE/common shells for BB calibre weapons by the end of WW1. How do the devs plan to reconcile that FACT with the whole "oh no, ship is angled, break out the

  6. Just map in general, stylized as naval charts, where positions of your ships and (guessed, often wrong) course of enemy would be plotted, and with ability to issue manoeuvres and assign targets from there.

  7. First off, thank you for your work, Devs! I LOVE the new hulls and quad turrets! But, I’d like to see a bit more sanity with the quad turrets: 1. They go too big. There is no way a 20” gun is going in a quad turret on any platform smaller than the absolute highest tonnage and even then probably no more than two of those and not superfiring unless you can REQUIRE the “enormous” barbette. 2. They don’t go small enough! Can we please have the French 13” turret for a Dunkerque? Also, aside from ubiquitous AAA quad mounts, French sometimes put their 5” secondaries in quad turrets on Dunke

  8. @madham82@Cptbarney@Steeltrap thanks for the examples, you folks are always good for historical information. Have been looking into it further because it's a slow day at work and we have jstor access, and you guys are absolutely right. It seems that pre-dreadnoughts and early dreadnoughts that relied on coal bunkerage for their below-waterline protection were actually quite vulnerable (the volatility of their propellant and charges may also have been a factor.) After the move to oil and the development of dedicated torpedo protection this seems to have been mitigated pretty substantially. @St
