A Question of Images

Looks like they disabled some things so the pics no longer work with the trick. Therefore Photobucket has now truly become completely useless.

A Question of Images

Quoted if somewhat irritating to have to constantly do I think it is just a minor inconvenience. It works (for now) and that is good enough (for now).

Okay... so for this one... ...

How about now? I made a minute address change to those images and I can see all images in that thread now.

http://wesworld.jk-clan.de/index.php?pag…8602#post118602 Hmmm... that is interesting. When I looked here, the one Photobucket image is visible and the other isn't... Having messed around a bit, the one that was not visible is now visible again... to me at least. Not sure if the others can as well...

A Question of Images

Quoted It looks like all my Photobucket images are now gone, oddly over at Shipbucket yesterday they seemed ok. They are still there, just no longer visible outside Photobucket. Oddly enough when I just looked, I was logged out while usually when I get back, I am still logged in... so for a few seconds I was worried... Quoted I stopped using Photobucket earlier this year when the resizing started. The whole thing is really a pile of shite. It was still usable for small stuff, but now it has bec...

A Question of Images

Well, I was thinking about making a post yesterday named "Photobucket has outlived its usefulness" but in the end I decided not to bother with it. Actually it pretty much did so when it started to shrink down the bigger images I uploaded during the upload process and thus making a bit of a mess of the bigger Shipbucket images at which point I decided to give Dropbox a try. I wonder who the idiot is over at Photobucket who thinks that the people who use their site are stupid enough to pay them $4...

Philippine News and Events, 1948

Quoted Was it possible that the Japanese had a spy within the Navy? No, in his office. That one plant in the corner is actually a ninja wearing a green suit.

Quoted No way, they would all die in mysterious circumstances! Either that or they are the suspects... Quoted Even Walter's nija's or Swampy's smoking Filipinos can't handle a chance encounter with the little Belgian or the busybody little old lady! It is against the code of the ninja to beat up senior citizens. .. and Japan has various individuals that can easily deal with the little Belgian or the busybody little old lady... There are Japan's special Special Forces... ... and Japan's special ...

Japan News 1947

... should have finished the 1947 stuff earlier... August 31, 1947 Popular racing driver Iwasaki Takahiro was killed today during the Fuji 200 Race. While going through Turn 1 during the 47th lap, Iwasaki, who was running fifth, lost control of his Toyota and slammed head-on into the outside wall of Turn 2 at over 200 km/h. Iwasaki was pronounced dead after he was brought to the track hospital and was presumed to have been killed instantly upon impact. The race was eventually won by Mazda driver...

Philippine News and Events, 1948

Well, they should sell it to a reliable nation that does not sell any ships like Japan. Japan bought the Indian submarine Sangadila, the Indian cruisers Hyderabad and Bangalore and the Chosen carrier Chosen and they are still in service of the Japanese navy and not sold on to some other nation (and they never will).

Argentine Ships for 1949

Quoted I wouldn't pay too much attention to the draught-beam ratio, I think most the SS simmed subs were too short in the hull to properly sim subs so the new subsim design has a more circular hull than the flatter hulls we used in SS. One more point why the Project 724 submarine is more like the New S-class. Both these submarines are simmed right while the other two are simmed wrong. Quoted Hey, that's been a long time ago. Guess a few old goats in the Argentinian Navy forgot about that. Maybe...

Argentine Ships for 1949

Quoted Next year Argentina will also begin a more ambitious programme, a home-grown submarine. Heavily based on the two German classes acquired in the late 1930s and early 40s the Project 724 is a training submarine to replace the current two ex-German subs. Probably only one will be built. Nothing wrong with the sim itself, but looking at that bit of text, would it not be better for the Argentinians to look at the submarines that Japan is building for them and base the submarine on a smaller v...

Belgian Submarine Design Competition

Quoted from "Brockpaine" Quoted from "Hood" Not sure why the TT weight should change unless its adding weight for more complicated reload equipment? I think that's probably the case. Many of the postwar European coastal submarines I've looked at didn't actually carry any reloads (for example, look at the German Type XIII, the Type 201 class, and the Type 206; the Soviet Project 615 "Quebecs"; the French Daphne class). To me, that seems unlikely. Changing to 1939 and 1919 is a simple test, I get...

Belgian Submarine Design Competition

Quoted As a result Atlantean subs don't place a premium on submerged speed as much as offensive capabilities and range, though the latter is still a bit short by foreign standards. Since you mentioned range, I thought I would look at that and see how the Atlantean submarines compare to the other submarines. I only looked at those of 1940 and later otherwise it becomes a big unwieldy mess for me to work with. In order of displacement: Shayú ----------- China ------- 1942 ----- 182t ----- 1600nm@...

Belgian Submarine Design Competition

Quoted What actual effect does the setting have in Subsim? Extra crew, heavier structure? Playing around with my Ninja submarine, changing it from coastal to ocean-going... - Crew goes from 54 to 59. This is because the baseline crew of 10 for coastal submarines becomes 15 for ocean-going submarines. - No idea what D_body and T_sheet are supposed to be but they change from 5.4 and 1.8 respectively to 5.6 and 2.7. - Weight for miscellaneous crew goes from ~10.45 tons per additional crew member t...

Quoted My own (very informal) rule-of-thumb was to keep coastal submarines under 1,000 t light or loaded displacement; but when I'm seeing coastal designs over 1,500 loaded displacement, I have to start wondering. Weight-wise, I would say that your 1000 ton max rule-of-thumb is way too high. Looking at the ranges of the above mentioned submarine classes, they really are ocean-going submarines and should be simmed as such. The Aluhaman with the shortest range of them has 58% more range than the ...

Quoted Still has a lot of unnecessary misc weight though, could probably trim about 26 tons off the misc weight, that would boost the reserve buoyancy a little. The Japanese look at it differently but if the Belgians want that... The thing that could be removed are the defense countermeasures and 'camouflage' but then they would probably not need the silent running engines either. I guess the Belgians can hold their breath for a long time so the air condition system, oxygen bottles and CO2 remo...

Quoted Well ok, at least we know where the bleeding edge is. In Belgium's defence they have no submarine arm and therefore one Captain reading a bit of Jules Verne probably hasn't worked out too well. Sorry for being such a pain... uhm... I mean send that captain the the North Pole on a snowflake counting expedition!!! Perhaps something like this...

1940s IJN designs

The Shinobi I and Shinobi II classes are old and neglected. The Ninjas, threatening to go on strike, demand that the Navy takes action and give them some proper replacements. The Navy quickly designed the below one to make the Ninjas happy... or shut them up permanently when the subs catch fire. IN-1 class, Japan Submarine for crazy ninjas Date: 1948 Type: Coastal Length: 65.0m Beam: 6.0m Draft: 6.3m Crush depth: 225.0m Light Displacement 915t Loaded Displacement 1090t Full Displacement 1219t wt...
