Hi there, I'm here to talk about submarines. I know that the submarines will not be player controlled from earlier statements from the developers in the campaign, and I'm not here to argue against that, I think its a good way to keep the focus on surface guns fleets. However I do have a few questions regarding the topic, as submarnes are a massive part of naval warfare from WW1 onwards. 1) Will we be able to design the submarines ourselves in the shipbuilder? I know theres not really much one can add to a submarine externally as most of it is hull, but things like torpedo tubes, sails, etc should be available for tweaking, heck maybe cruiser grade guns if your feeling French. This would allow us to set up the subs to follow a doctrine we intend to deploy (long range, large spread fleet subs, to small coastal defense subs). 2) Will we be able to dictate their positioning in the campaign and what laws they follow, (cruiser warfare to unrestricted submarine warfare)? 3) Will we be able to place anti-submarine weapon systems on our escorts manually, or will that be automated to a particular set of hulls? Please do vote on the polls! Cheers.
(Its just a thought and not a statement) I saw this game a while back and thought lets take a look. First off I am astonished, because this game is perfect. A month ago i started getting into ship building on other games/programs, and then I discovered this game. I love it and I thought "Well if it has surface ships why not submersibles?". I think a few types of submersibles may add some "depth" to the vessel types. Then I remembered the first carriers made from converted cargo ships and cruisers. If they are just re-purposed cruisers/transports, why cant they be in game. (This may sound rude, let me rephrase.) Somewhere down the line add some carrier parts/components/aircraft etc. I know it seems far fetched since there are no Anti-Aircraft armaments in game to begin with, but again its just a thought. TL:DR Id like to see subs in game in the future along with carriers (And maybe some transports ) (HMS Furious Circa 1918) Thanks: TheBlueBaron
