Thailand Q1/1948-Q1/1949

Taccovert4, I guess you might have seen this already but if not, this is last report for Thailand that we have: http://wesworld.jk-clan.de/index.php?pag…4%22#post117934 As Bruce says, reports tend to be technical things outlining how much tonnage you've spent on construction, how much you have scrapped and how much you have left stockpiled for the next quarter. My advice would be to start working the report before getting too bogged down in plans and designs as in reality your available resource...

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Parador scripset: Enthusiasm is great when starting a game; I do not believe it will sustain a game very long. This is why Navalism has gone through so many reboots during Wesworld’s life – enthusiasm can get you through building a nation – commitment and consistency is required to see that nation through the vagaries of a campaign of thirty years’ worth of quarterly turns. What has been the rate of player turnover in WW? Very high. Real life takes a toll, changing cir...

I actually quite like Brock's idea of a set scenario with some kind of end goal in mind and a way to pit perhaps a limited bunch of nations or a team of players against each other competitively. That would remove the problem of worrying about what NPCs have or haven't got and other nations. We wouldn't need to flesh out an entire world, just the relevant nations. We have never really had a problem with naval tech. We had some raised eyebrows over Italy's early angled decks and hydrofoils but gen...

New Thai Designs

These are not bad designs and they just need little tweaks. Rachan Looks generally ok, if it was my carrier I would want a bit more stability. I'm not too worried about the belt armour not covering all machinery and magazines, carrier layouts are different from classic battleship/cruiser design which SS is hardwired for. You can easily fit 30 aircraft on this design. It might be worth adding a little more misc weight, but this is a relatively cheap and small design and 2,000 tons might be just e...

I've been away this week on my holidays so just getting back into all this, although I was keeping an eye on this thread. Wesworld 2.0 is a thorny issue for sure on many levels. I am open to some ahistorical development, but only with a clear rationale. What we don't want is a player cobbling together their pet dream fiefdom and then disappearing later and leaving the sim with a strange development that is hard to explain and keep going. This has happened in WW more than once and has some conseq...

naval projects for Atlantis, 1948

I like it, quite powerful for the tonnage and not too expensive to break the bank.

That's not going to get lost by air traffic control! Good to see a new aerobatic team in WW though.

Belgian News 1949

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Given the details of the founding of the organization I find it curious that it is reported under Belgian News. Didn't ya get the memo that Cuxhaven was annexed by the fortress concrete shock troops of the 2nd Chocolatier Company of the Belgian Army last week? Or I may of overlooked that small part in the origins story when I came across it.

Air Display Teams

I am not sure of the rationale, perhaps it was purely economic or the lack of spare airframes/pilots to set aside. Displays seem to be down to individual units but saying that they have graced the skies with many wonderful special colour schemes so the crowds have gained in other ways.

British Empire News 1949

14 May The 1949 British Grand Prix was held at Silverstone today. This is the second race in this year’s inaugural World Championship for Drivers Season. No less than 28 drivers were entered into the race, Team Toyota Racing making their first appearance at a British racing circuit. The race was a punishing event and no less than 15 cars failed to reach the chequered flag. Poor Bob Ansell never made it to the start when engine problems with his privately-entered Maserati 4CM forced him to retire...

Chinese Designs for 1949

Designing smaller craft like minesweepers can be a pain to get right. The excess hull strength and low stability are results of that, often SS blows a fuze when trying to design a small relatively unarmed design with a big misc weight load. But the results are not too bad, doubtless it could be refined further with tweaking the numbers in SS.

4 May Three men stood on the windy foreshore looking out to sea. The area was the most northernmost and remotest point in the British Isles, to the east lay the town of Thurso. The men were trying to unfold a large sheet of paper. "So this will be the site?" one of the men asked. One of the other men, in the uniform of the Royal Navy replied, "Yes, this is a suitably remote and secure place. And being not far from Scapa affords us excellent cover." The third man nodded, "Once the Treasury is squ...

naval projects for Atlantis, 1948

An ambitious rebuild but one that certainly makes good use out of an older obsolete ship class. The only thing that I would comment on, and that is not surprising given the scale of the misc weight, is that the stability is borderline at 1.01. But I assume you intend using this in sheltered coastal waters so it would not be a massive handicap.
