RE: Hello again

Quoted from "snip" Long time no smoke signal. Ran into Brock while playing some World of Warships. Figured I would poke in and wave hello to everyone. Happy turkey day! Howdy! Was good to chat and play again. :)

Peruvian News and Events, 1949

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Seriously, if Brazil has done these good deeds, I haven't seen much mention of them since taking charge of Peru. A side-effect of Brazil being largely in caretaker status, unfortunately. Hood and I have kept their naval forces largely up to date (although I think we're a few quarters behind on sim reports) but we're obviously not posting news. Still, I did make sure the list of all of Brazil's riverine ships was fully up to date, since it had a few missing patrol boats...

Peruvian News and Events, 1949

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Iquitos, Loreto, 23 July 1949 Every day Peruvian rural clinics were treating cases of injury or disease attributable to those living on Brazilian soil – on an equal basis with Peruvian nationals – because there was nothing to be had in their own country. Not to be obnoxiously contrarian, but this is patently untrue. The Brazilian government spent significant resources on developing communities in the Amazon region, and did so years before Peru made any efforts in this ...

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Quoted from "Brockpaine" Quoted from "BruceDuncan" the vessels of the Lithuanian Naval Service – chiefly elderly destroyers ...I'm not actually sure you can call the Vytis class "elderly". It's true they're in their early teens, but they underwent a major modernization in 1947, receiving French electronics. This is the description put forth by the commander of one of the Kriegsmarine's latest vessels, equipped with state of the art German electronics. Is he biased in h...

The Voyage of the Frigate Jolo

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" “No, if we chased every Chinese trawler on the high seas we would never accomplish our primary mission.” Well, suppose if you torpedoed them? You wouldn't need to deal with repeat offenders. :P

Was meaning to note earlier - I think the Nords actually call the town St. Johan, not St. Jan. That's always been the name I use, fwiw.

Yugoslav News and Events 1949

Random question that I've just never asked before. How... do you pronounce "Strsljen"??? My best guess would be "Stressle-yen" or maybe "Stur-sl-yen", but I have no idea if I'm even operating with the correct phonetic rules.

Is it just me, or does the list include a larger proportion of amphibious craft?

French News, 1949

Paris - February 28th, 1949 The sun had yet to rise in Paris when the French cabinet convened. Added to their number, at least for this special session, was Comte de Rochefort of the Deuxième Bureau, who sat in silence next to Minister of National Defense Édouard Delcroix. "Ladies and gentlemen," Prime Minister Edmond Michelet said. "Let's get this session underway at once. We have received and just finished decoding the response of Chinese Prime Minister Chiang kai-Shek, delivered to our ambass...

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. No reason to worry about nations with whom France shares cordial relations. Although I suspect we'll have something to fear in the upcoming Great Barbecue Cook-off of 1949.

French News, 1949

Skipping ahead slightly to February 25th, the French government and military, and the Russian government and military acting in consultation, make the following actions. OOC: This list is not exhaustive. This list is published OOC. Some items may be publicly announced, while other items may be suppressed and will only come out over time. Quoted Naval: -- FR: Vice-amiral d'escadre Régis Bérenger will bring the 2nd Division de Croiseurs (Jean Bart and Jeanne d'Arc) and the 7th Flotilla Torpillieur...

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

Macclesfield Bank, Cruiser Saint Louis - Thursday, February 24, 1949 "Radio message from the Chinese flagship, sir." A messenger handed a scrap of paper to Capitaine Villecourt. "Thank you," Villecourt replied. He glanced at it while taking a gulp of coffee. "Amusing... 'we warmly welcome our French friends'. With turrets pointed, of course - if they treat their friends thusly, it's no wonder that half of the world is lining up to kick their ass." "Any response, sir?" the seaman asked. "No. The ...

Thailand Q1/1948-Q2/1949

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" In theory the intervening twenty four quarters (1942 through 1947) could provide sufficient infrastructure points to support expansion of the Thai naval infrastructure noted in the 1Q48 Sim Report; whether that would be sufficient to complete a half factory (in 4Q41 Thailand had only 2.5 factories, not 3 as noted in 1Q48) and the other naval infrastructure projects is a matter that needs to be accounted for in intervening sim reports and not merely assumed. Available i...

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...

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, ...
