UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF POST: Hoi lads. With April fools rapidly approaching i was wondering what the community would like too see ship-wise for the event (Assuming there will be one). I figure it would be a good excuse to add in some of the more unusual ships that existed and potentially see them in game. Going off the theme of the previous fools event i decided to focus on ships from 1870-1905. The ships i want too see are the following: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Texas_(1892) USS Texas. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossus-class_ironclad Colossus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Inflexible_(1876) Inflexible. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottoman_ironclad_Asar-i_Tevfik Would be a very unique ship. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Re_Umberto-class_ironclad Very good looker. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Arminius Again a very unusual ship https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiser-class_ironclad Armoured frigate lol. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italia-class_ironclad goodin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_ironclad_Redoutable The first all steel ship, historically important https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS_Kronprinz_Erzherzog_Rudolf Very unusual ship again. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazilian_battleship_Riachuelo Historically important. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARA_Almirante_Brown_(1880) why not lol. Feel free to post what you like too see in this event or future fool events and if it isn't coming this year, then we can use these suggestions for the next or maybe future patches as well. Even if they don't add them into the campaign, playing with them in customs and academy would be fine for me too be honest. Have a noice day! 'w'/ EDIT: Some grammar checks and extra info. 02/12/2021: So since, the devs have announced they will focus more on pre-dreads and similar, i thought it would make sense to update this thread and simply allow people to use this as a place to talk about ships between 1860-1922, of all classes (yes even cv's and soobs). Cheers.
One of the things I'd love to see (especially on pre-Dreadnought era ships) would be bow ornaments. Let me say that I fully understand and appreciate if this will be a low priority, as it would have negligible impact on profile or any combat stats. If its free, then its just cool and aesthetic, or if it were to have a small cost, maybe it'd have some nifty (minor) bonus to fleet prestige in campaign, ala Great White Fleet. USS Connecticut USS Olympia SMS Kaiser Friedrich III ... and I ran out of space. I think bow ornaments would add a bit of national flavor to the game. Like I said, it'd be a neat little extra in the game, though I realize this may not be the highest priority. @Nick Thomadis
