Find a map for WesWorld2…

Quoted from "Desertfox" So when I was told in no uncertain terms I couldn't play around with aircraft anymore (for doing things everyone else was doing) well that took alot of air out of my sails. It would be more accurate to say that you had Mexico use other people's historical aircraft, defied or ignored their requests for you to stop, refused any efforts toward a compromise, started using in-character actions to harass people who disagreed with you about those out-of-character issues, and th...

Find a map for WesWorld2…

Quoted from "thesmilingassassin" Perhaps we should start a facebook page an screen/recruit potential players there? It can easily be recommended to others who surf warship related pages. Another good way is via our Discord channel.

Find a map for WesWorld2…

Quoted from "Hood" WW began in 2003, that is 16 years to cover 29 years of SIM time (1920-49). If we ran a SIM 1890-1950 that could easily take 20 real years to get going. In a current format of 4 quarters per year and detailed reports and news each cycle is laborious given that in a real sense nothing 'happens' in the sim other than ships are designed and built. If we run a WesWorld2, it might be worth addressing that point. I can think of several possible ways to do so: -- We could maintain t...

Welcome to wesworld!

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Another thing is that, as there was no player for Thailand at the time, I asked Brock permission to have Prince Birabongse Bhanudej Bhanubandh join Team Toyota Racing. Hope you are okay with that. Oh, yes - that's correct, although I'd forgotten about it until now. :)

Find a map for WesWorld2…

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" And for my own preferences on Wesworld 2.0, I prefer to deal with a world starting at a single point of departure from historical rather than a mix of every player's fantasy nation. My strong preference at the moment would be for a new sim, starting 1890, which would start largely historical (or with relatively minor, explicitly stated departures from historical). I'm not going to say I wouldn't stick with it if people started bringing in new or ahistorical countries, ...

Beijing Newspaper Q1/1949 - Chinese news and events - January / February / March

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Japan will help Siam by giving them a big canon to protect the Kra Isthmus from the meddlesome Chinese. :) Well, if the Chinese don't back down in the South China Sea, the Chinese won't have the money to support something like the Thai Canal. They'll be a bit... distracted with paying for some other things, like the piper they ordered. :)

Chinese Merchant Marine Ship Designs

And, somewhat as an aside, the closer vessel in the junk picture is actually a lorcha... which is a European-designed hull with a junk rig, irregularly used in China itself. ;)

Beijing Newspaper Q1/1949 - Chinese news and events - January / February / March

Pacific Fleet Headquarters: Saigon, Indochina - Wednesday, February 23, 1949 Vice-amiral Virgile Lapeyre reviewed the aerial photographs taken the prior afternoon of Macclesfield Bank. The small Chinese task force had remained almost stationary throughout the course of several daysm with a number of lighter vessels apparently engaged in some sort of construction activities. The Deuxième Bureau's human intelligence network in southern China had, relatively swiftly, provided a possible reason for ...

Beijing Newspaper Q1/1949 - Chinese news and events - January / February / March

Quoted from "Rooijen10" If only I had a submarine there to sink the plans of the evil Chinese. :) Considering how things are looking at Macclesfield Bank, the French and Russians will soon have submarines there to sink the plans of the evil Chinese. ...okay, well... in all likelihood it'll actually be Lilya-class corvettes sweeping up those areas. My submarines will instead be engaged in the extremely important task of creating new artificial reefs to replace what the Chinese have overfished. D...
