A Question of Images

Oh, that's nice... if somewhat irritating to have to constantly do... I'd have preferred to keep using Dropbox, because it made things really quite convenient for me - much more so than Photobucket, and somewhat better than when I had my own filehost. (Sounds like I ought to return to that, though.) In case this hasn't made the case for it already, I'd like to encourage everyone to consider what kind of images they post. If you can enter the text directly to the forum rather than uploading a pic...

A Question of Images

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Quoted Dropbox I believe can still be used to publicly host if you already have a work-around in place, though I guess in time that loophole will be plugged. I believe so, too. For the time being, I will be using that one for as long as it's possible. How are you getting Dropbox to host your images? Their changes a few months back went and broke all of my image links and it looks like they've done almost the same sort of thing Photobucket's done. So I'd actually started ...

...no, no problems for me. I'm curious, since I've had to switch over my image-hosting to Photobucket (stupid Dropbox!)

Philippine News and Events, 1948

Or, more mundanely, it might have just been good behavior analysis. The Filipinos have been fairly regular at shedding older vessels, and this vessel is an example in kind.

If the Germans are interested, those frigates could drop into Djibouti for a port visit before heading back east or west.

Meanwhile, in Russia - 1947

Fire Damages Russian Submarine October - A defective and obsolete lead-acid battery caused a fire on the M-8, a vessel of the Project 23 "Molchkom" type that is part of the 7th Submarine Flotilla stationed in Murmansk. The submarine, built in 1928, was tied up at dockside at the time the fire began. Although no crewmen were killed, sixteen men were treated due to smoke and the submarine sustained heavy damage. The boat had just returned from participating in Exercise Almaz-8 in the Barents Sea. ...

French News, 1947

French Government Responds to Italian Protest Thursday, October 2, 1947 - An official spokesman for the Armée de l'air asserted today that they would not discontinue training flights between Ajaccio and Sidi Ahmed, Tunisie, despite the recent Italian protests. However, the Armée de l'air declared that they would provide Italy with twenty-four hours notice before conducting a training flight. At the same time, the spokesman delivered a stinging rebuke to the Italian Aeronautica Militare, objectin...

Moving Forward

Quoted from "Hood" A quick question to everyone. Assuming the oft quoted 1950 end date for the sim, based on the last date setting in Springsharp, would I be assuming that the last quarter of play will be Q4/1950? I've been presuming so as well. Though technically, I wouldn't mind playing through the 1950s if we could agree on some house rules for the technological advancements that start appearing in that era (missiles, helicopters, etc). The question is whether or not we'd have enough players...

Belgian Submarine Design Competition

Quoted from "Hood" Doesn't the depth of the waters your going to operate in influence the choice too? 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).

Belgian Submarine Design Competition

Quoted from "Rooijen10" I would guess, based on the conversions to 10 knots cruising speed of the Filipino and French coastal submarines a few posts back, that the Type VII, Roland Morillot, Type XXI and Emeraude have a similar range to the Type 42. Project 78 and SSH-1 probably have a similar range to the Type 43. Type XXI and Emeraude both have 12,477nm range at 10 knots.

Belgian Submarine Design Competition

Quoted from "Hood" What actual effect does the setting have in Subsim? Extra crew, heavier structure? Yes, both of those; as part of the latter point, it changes the factors which it uses to calculate diving depths, so that oceanic subs get better diving limits. If I sim a design as a coastal sub and then change it to oceanic, I can lose about twenty percentage points of reserve buoyancy. That often is enough to take my designs from ~15% (which is almost ideal) to -5% (which is... not).

German News and Events, 1948

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Nevertheless, he had ordered drawn up a contingency plan should intervention prove necessary, and had inquired of his French and Russian counterparts what actions, if any, they contemplated. OOC: -- Russia has every confidence that the British are capable of keeping a lid on Iraq; whether Britain finds it convenient or not is still up for debate. The Russians have no contemplation of activity in regards to Iraq, because there is no clear necessity for it; if there was ...
