Now in ultimate admiral we got sliders for draught and beam as well as ship speed and total displacement and the hulls got individual shapes naturally for how to behave and i would be interested to hear what people think of my ideas as well as the developer's if they where to skim past it. 1. TOTAL TONNAGE CALCULATIONS now as we got draught + beam and ship hull + what you chose to install on the ship. What if the total tonnage slider was a simple length of hull slider working in lenght steps as it does now but minus the ton increase? and by calculating ship lenght + beam + draught + equipment you got ships total tonnage and then may have to sacrifice some things in the design to make it fit within the port 2. ENGINE WEIGHT HP CALCULATIONS FOR SPEED Instead of a speed slider in knots for then to calculate engine/shaft hp to reach a ships intended speed causing prices to skyrocket at one point as the engine needed to propel the ship would be ludicrous. As i and apologies if i am wrong believe the game calculates ship hull draught and beam with displacement to get the hp needed to reach speed, what if we had a shaft hp slider and speed was calculated on the same calculations but in reverse giving us the final speed of the ship displayed in the mid screen or in the speck sheets of it as you only slide the tonnage/hp of the engine capacity and chose how big an engine instead of what speed it should make first, making a reverse calculation more or less but giving people an understanding of what power and tonnage engine would be needed to propel the ships at X speed.
