While we are waiting for in-game blueprint sharing, I figured I would make this for y'all so ship designs can be shared. Feel free to add your own ships that you have built. Ill add some of my own below. Try to add building instructions so others can replicate the design. Memeships and other clown car designs are totally allowed.

USS Hyperion

Construction Instructions:

Hull: Super Battleship, USA, 1940 tech

Modules: 109k tons, 28 knot top speed, long range, maximum bulkheads, oil 3 fuel, no boilers, diesel 2, auxiliary engine 4,shaft 3, Krupp 4, Barbette 4, antitorpedo 5, triple hull, reinforced bulkheads 2, antiflood 3, citadel 5, standard shells, standard ammo, TNT explosives, hydraulic turrets, standard reload, standard torps, 18 inch torps, stereo 5 rangefinder, no acoustics, advanced radio, gen 2 radar.

Armor scheme: 16" belt, 10" belt extended, 8.5" deck, 7" deck extended, 15" conning tower, 17" turret, 7" turret top, 6" secondaries.

Topside assembly:  

Place huge superimposed barbette on the rear mounting point closest to the center. Place Modern secondary tower 6 on the 21st mounting point from the rear, then place Modern tower 3 directly in front of it. Place 4 triple 17-inch turrets on the ship in AB-XY configuration. the muzzles of the superfiring turrets should be over the rangefinders of the turrets below. Place twin 6-inch guns on the mounting points on the superstructure, then place twin 2-inch on all of the circular mounts on the superstructure, as well as the mounts on the prow. Place underwater torpedo tube in prow of ship. Lastly, place 2 Mega funnel 3 on the superstructure.

Usage:

Hyperion is a good mid-range (±20km) combatant capable of destroying nearly all mid-size to large enemies. It sports heavy armor and extensive anti-torpedo protections but requires escorts to spot torpedoes due to its lack of a sonar station. A true titan by all definitions.

HMS Leviathan

Hull: Super Battlecruiser, British Empire, 1940 tech

Modules: 82.5k tons, 38.5 knot top speed, long range, many bulkheads, oil 3 fuel, no boilers, diesel 2, auxiliary engine 4,shaft 3, Krupp 4, Barbette 4, antitorpedo 3, triple hull, reinforced bulkheads 2, antiflood 3, citadel 5, standard shells, standard ammo, TNT explosives, hydraulic turrets, standard reload,  stereo 5 rangefinder, no acoustics, advanced radio, gen 2 radar.

Armor scheme: 15" belt, 9" belt extended, 8" deck, 6" deck extended, 15" conning tower, 17" turret, 7" turret top, 6" secondaries.

Topside assembly:  

Place Advanced sec tower 4 as close to the rear edge of the forecastle deck as possible, then place Advanced tower 4 directly in front of it. place 2 huge superimposed barbettes fore and aft of the superstructure. place twin 17-inch guns in an AB-XY configuration. place twin 6-inch guns on and in front of the side barbettes on the superstructure, then add twin 2-inch guns on the rest of the mounting points on the superstructure. Lastly, add Mega funnel 4 to the main tower and 2 Mega funnel 3 to the secondary tower.

Usage:

The Leviathan truly lives up to its name, prowling the ocean to smite the enemies of His Majesty with the power of the 17-inch gun. Extremely fast, well armed, and dangerous, the Leviathan is best used at short to medium range against smaller capital ships. Despite its great versatility, It performs poorly against more powerful capital ships like the Hyperion. In such situations it would be advised to use the ships ludicrously high speed to make a swift escape.

USS Macarthur

Hull: Heavy Cruiser 2, United States, 1940 tech

Modules: 21k tons, 33.5 knot top speed, long range, maximum bulkheads, oil 3 fuel, no boilers, diesel engines 2, auxiliary engine 4,shaft 3, Krupp 4, Barbette 4, antitorpedo 3, triple hull, reinforced bulkheads 2, antiflood 3, citadel 5, standard shells, standard ammo, TNT explosives, hydraulic turrets, standard reload,  stereo 5 rangefinder, Sonar 3, advanced radio, gen 2 radar.

Armor scheme: 12" belt, 7" belt extended, 6.5" deck, 4" deck extended, 8" conning tower, 13" turret, 5" turret top, 4" secondaries.

Topside assembly:  

Place Modern tower 2 on rearmost mounting point, then place modern sec tower 1 directly behind it. place triple 11 inch guns in an AB-X formation. place twin 4-inch guns on secondary mountings. place twin 2-inch guns on circular mounts on superstructure. Lastly, place Advanced funnel 1 on both main and secondary towers.  

Usage: The first of a new series of "Universal ships", the Macarthur class is equipped to handle any threat except larger battleships. It possesses high speeds, good armor, and an excellent sonar system, along with 11 inch guns. It can be deployed by itself or as part of a larger fleet. The only conceivable counter to such ships would be something like the Leviathan class of the British Empire.

It would be nice to get some more U.S stuff. All in due time I suppose, there are still tons of things to add.

True, although speaking only from a 3d modelling perspective and a ship hull adding perspective.

Very interesting posts. It would help to have an image of your ships, so that the viewers can more easily reproduce your designs.

I ran out of space for attachments, so I added image links instead

Tiequan

Hull: Modernized dreadnought, Chinese Empire, 1940 tech

Modules: 87k tons, 27.5 knot top speed, long range, maximum bulkheads, oil 3 fuel, no boilers, diesel engines 2, auxiliary engine 4,shaft 3, Krupp 4, Barbette 4, antitorpedo 5, triple hull, reinforced bulkheads 2, antiflood 3, citadel 5, standard shells, standard ammo, TNT explosives, hydraulic turrets, standard reload, stereo 5 rangefinder, sonar 1, advanced radio, gen 2 radar.

Armor scheme: 15" belt, 9" belt extended, 8" deck, 8" deck extended, 15" conning tower, 17" turret, 7" turret top, 6" secondaries.

Topside assembly:  Place Englarged superimposed barbettes as close to the center as possible, then place Modern tower 2 and Modern sec tower 1 between them. Place 4 twin 17-inch guns in AB-XY configuration. Place 8 inch guns in casemate slots as well as twin 5-inch guns along superstructure, 3 per side and 6 twin 2-inch guns on superstructure. Lastly, place Super funnel large on superstructure.

Usage: one of the few capital ships to survive the warlord era, Tiequan was supposed to be the flagship of Warlord Zhang Zongchang, until it was captured by the KMT while still under construction. due to a shortage of materials, the ship remained unfinished for some years. After the Japanese invasion, it was evacuated to Australia along with the remnants of the Chinese fleet, where the ship was completed with surplus British parts, including a basic sonar and a tripod mast, as well as a funnel scavenged from a Japanese battlecruiser. Once complete, it should be able to effectively operate alone or with an escorting task force.

SMS Preussen

Hull: Dreadnought 3, German Empire, 1918 tech

Modules: 44k tons, 24 knot top speed, medium range, maximum bulkheads, oil 1 fuel, natural boilers, geared turbines, auxiliary engine 3,shaft 2, Krupp 3, Barbette 4, antitorpedo 3, triple hull, reinforced bulkheads 2, antiflood 3, citadel 4, standard shells, standard ammo, TNT explosives, hydraulic turrets, standard reload, stereo 3 rangefinder, no acoustics, no radio, no radar.

Armor scheme: 13" belt, 8" belt extended, 6" deck, 3" deck extended, 9" conning tower, 14" turret, 5" turret top, 1" secondaries.

Topside assembly:  Place Rear tower 7 on the rearmost mounting point. place advanced tower 12 behind it. place 3 triple 14-inch guns in AB-X configuration. Place 6-inch casemate guns on all possible slots, as well as 3 2-inch casemate guns on the superstructure. Lastly, put Tall funnel 6 on the main tower.

Usage: SMS Preussen was laid down in 1918 during the latter stages of WW1. Following the treaty, Germany was forced to limit the size of its navy to just a handful of battleships, but allowed to complete any battleships still under construction in exchange for scrapping 3 older battleships for each new one. As a result, Preussen and its sister ship, Thüringen, were the only dreadnought battleships in the German navy for some time. In their heyday, they were used as "fleet in being" ships, and often operated as the centerpiece of various task forces, until they were rendered obsolete by new-generation battleships in the 1930s. They were replaced in the superiority role by the Bismarck class and were relegated to shore bombardment duties. Following the end of WW2, Preussen was retired as a museum ship, while Thüringen was expended as a target ship, and sits at the bottom of the Chesapeake bay, where it can still be seen today.
