Blast interference - Help requested

I've read somewhere that delay fuses were also used to delay the firing of center guns in triple turrets that suffered from blast interference, I don't recall the source however.

RSAN units laid down or modified 1945

I'm surprised that the SAE would base its need for super cruisers on British ships but I'm not going to quibble too much about that. I'll say though I'd expect them to build more carriers rather than super cruisers as their carrier fleet is aging rapidly and few replacements are being built. As for Amphibious ships, its not a fad for the SAE to build them, its a necessity for most navies now and it makes sense for the SAE to play catch up in that area.

RSAN units laid down or modified 1945

IMO the Magnificent class are costly and unnecessary, and if built would have actually influenced Atlantean cruiser design significantly (Atlantis is into 1947 and still hasn't built any cruiser larger than 14,000 tons). Only the Chilean, Colombian and Mexican fleets have ships in that weight class, the SAE's more traditional enemies (Brazil and Argentina) have nothing close to this size that isn't a BB or BC so its unclear just why the SAE would need such large cruisers. That said if the SAE di...

Long time no see Hoo! I agree with your post, this sim is time consuming. Another hurtle for me is that Photobucket has turned into a big flaming turd, making it unable to post pictures on this sight which to be honest is half the fun for me. I have tons of drawings and nowhere to post them, I've even tried to save some on facebook without success though I need to continue to explore that option.

French News, 1949

Quoted from "Desertfox" I was just pointing out that back in the day there was no love between Australia and the French-German Alliance. There was even a diplomatic incident after a German overflight of Rabaul. That's why Australia left SEAR in the first place, they had no intentions of fighting in a French war. I don't know what ShinRa's plans or intentions are, but I would assume that the diplomatic incident and Australia leaving SEAR are still relatively recent to at least give the French so...

French News, 1949

Quoted from "Desertfox" I find it interesting that the Australians have been completely ignored. They have no love for either side, but they can be a very big wildcard right next door to the French islands. How so? I'm not sure if that's a threat or a hint about cooperation.

Another option would be to treat Army and Air stuff the same as naval stuff and have infrastructure, tech development and production reports. We could use a pre made tech tree and currency to research the respective tech. Once researched it can be used/built. I'm not asking for an overly complicated system but something dummed down so that any player can use it. When you have to pay for stuff it becomes less casual, which would solve our realism problem with reguards to tiny nations developing b...

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.

New Thai Designs

Bruce is correct, posting in the ship designs forum first is usually the informal protocol for new designs and is a good way to iron out all the bugs and deficiencies in a design with constructive criticism and advice. Also don't forget to check out the gentlemen's rules as well (in rules and admin page).

Well for starters the chance to reset and start with something new is rather appealing to me, and I'm sure others.

I have to agree with Foxy, early on in the sim we had plenty of people still learning how to perfect their designs and encyclopedias are chocked full of designs that have been altered to correct mistakes. We also have the gentlemens rules to help guide as well. There is plenty of help from the few of us who have been using springsharp for literally years.

I'm warming to one of three different nations. Japan, the Ottoman empire (that does not completely collapse during WW1) or a Gran Columbia (that also doesn't fall apart) that includes Panama, Costa Rica, Aruba, Curacao, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada and likely some other smaller Islands in the region. (sounds like I'm warming to option three lol)

Well aside from Atlantis the current wesworld map does have some alternate nations in a real world scenario so discussion revolving around fictional diversions is most definitely not out of the question.

Naval projects for Atlantis, 1948

Its been a long standing design trait for Atlantean ships to carry 12.7mm guns for use against small craft, their placement is usually placed near senior staff positions in case they feel especially heroic/suicidal.

Fixed the armor error and added extra weight for the auto turrets inner workings. The design comes out slightly larger than the first design but still an acceptable level of growth.

Naval projects for Atlantis, 1948

The basic idea is that with the auto 8" twin turrets it can pack as much punch as cruisers typically 3,000-4,000 tons heavier but, as you say, not break the bank while providing a heavily armed and capable light cruiser suitable to be built in some numbers. Atlantis plans to build 12 of these types to replace the Pioneer class and eventually the Ares class. I also need to tweak the design as the belt doesn't completely cover the vitals.

A potential replacement for older light cruisers. This design is basically a modern improved Acestus class CL with slightly larger hull, 8" auto's in three twin turrets and greater speed. This design also see's the return of the recessed stern hangar to store 2 helicopters.

You would be correct, these are test ships only and would be used in sheltered coastal waters in either northern Venezuela or Mauritania, most likely the former.
