Due to the accelerated pace of the sim I didn't get around to writing an news post reguarding Siboney's planned rebuild into a training carrier.

Here is the design, cost is 11 months (7 quarters) and 6,443 tons of materials.

Siboney, Atlantean training carrier Carrier laid down 1918

Displacement:

12,613 t light; 12,886 t standard; 13,653 t normal; 14,267 t full load

Bunker at max displacement = 1,381 tons

Complement:

630 - 820

Miscellaneous weights: 700 tons, 5.1 %

Overall survivability and seakeeping ability:

Survivability (Non-critical penetrating hits needed to sink ship):

Seaboat quality (Average = 1.00): 2.00

Hull form characteristics:

Hull has a flush deck

Block coefficient: 0.685

Hull space for machinery, storage, compartmentation is excellent

Room for accommodation and workspaces is excellent

Ship has slow, easy roll, a good, steady gun platform

Excellent seaboat, comfortable, rides out heavy weather easily

550 tons for new structures (island, mock weapons platforms and 1 catapult)

50 tons for aircraft workshop

60 tons for trainee accomidations

30 tons for training personell accomodations

10 tons for aviation fuel

That would mean 50% of her build time from scratch and 50% of her materials due to her orriginal speed being reduced from 21.5 knots to 20 knots and her superstructure being radically altered.

Most of her orriginal hangar is converted to classrooms and accomidations, an Island, fake weapons sponsons and funnel have also been added in order to simulate the other CV's in service as much as possible.

The new building rules are being used here....

-Change to powerplant (type and output): D

This falls under the level 4 build rules, thus 50%.

If it was .5 knots I could argue that due to her age shes barely able to maintain the required 20 knots but shes a full 1.5 knots faster than the limits.

I don't think fouling of the ships bottom or machinery wear would drop her speed by that much but.....

I'm also able to build another training carrier under the revised CT rules which could turn out to be a slightly smaller, unarmored Alioth design.

She's 12 years old so I suppose the level of wear on her machinery is not too high.

I'm getting the sence you think she's valuable enough to have her machinery replaced, I might examine the rebuild plans again.

In the particular case of

3,222 tons needed and 6 months to complete. Does this sound more reasonable?
