Long time, no see...

Quoted from "Hood" Yeah smaller is more fun and you don't need to stress about hyper stats to beat all the bad boys. A small navy knows its wimpy so can just concentrate on getting the best for what it can afford. Pretty much! For various reasons, we set the game up to run with annual rather than quarterly budgets. I went ahead and used the factory system we have here, but made each one produce 1,000 tons per year (rather than per quarter). The nine player slots we set up therefore have between...

Long time, no see...

Quoted from "Hood" Good to see that Navalism is still going. A sim via Discord sounds novel, is it going well? We're still getting it set up, but we now have seven players. I wrote up the rules based on Wesworld rules; there are a number of tweaks here and there, but largely the same. One of the big things is that we arranged it so none of us are playing Great Powers, though there are a few on the planet. We're all middle-rank powers in terms of naval and economic strength. Think the equivalent...

Quoted from "parador" Quoted from "The Rock Doctor" Glad to hear the two of you are doing well and have wives and/or young'uns to keep you busy. I feel like I tried to set up a game on Venus as an iteration of Navalism once, but our current go is just plain ol' Earth, with different nations. Yes, my cats and goats keep me busy too :D ;) If someone of you need a player for a game like we had here ;) i will be happy to hear from you :D otherwise i play World of Warships ;) Hey Parador! If you're ...

RE: Long time, no see...

Hey Rocky! Quoted from "The Rock Doctor" Not sure when I last popped in here, but I see things are pretty quiet. Hope everybody's well. I'm doing well, and still usually check the board once or twice a day. Unfortunately I know Bruce passed away toward the end of 2021, and I know a few folks have had a difficult time of things over the last year. :( Not many of the crew around anymore... there's a few of us who occasionally still show up on the Wesworld discord channel, but that's been pretty qu...

By the way, when should the Chilean Air Force send their money for their order of Canberras?

Belgian News 1950

Quoted from "Hood" The French team was the best performer securing 43 points, followed by the Belgians with 77 points and the English with 82 points. Excellent! Randomly waves the tricolore all over everything.

Springsharp is Alive!

A fellow Discord user apparently emailed the devs, and it sounds like they're interested both in gathering more data on engine weights, and potentially moving Springsharp to an open-source software setup. That has some very interesting potential for Springsharp's future... :)

Peruvian News and Events, 1950

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" From the scene of border conflicts between Peru and its neighbors the Tres Fronteras now seemed to be a showcase for Peru to demonstrate its willingness to prove itself a good neighbor, and in this regard it was putting his own government to shame, to say nothing of the Colombians. OOC - once again, just because we're not posting a lot of details about the Brazilian side of the border does not mean they are inactive. They are still pouring a massive amount of funding i...

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" If this becomes public knowledge, it will certainly impact world opinion; particularly if the Kongolese start to carry it out. Yes; it might even result in twenty thousand Chasseurs Parachutistes showing up to express their opinion of their methods.

Quoted from "Hood" The Commander in Chief Home Fleet, Admiral Edward Neville Syfret, quipped that the best defence would be to get China to invade Russia and let them siphon off German seapower to the Pacific to be minced up there. Well, that would put a damper on our relationship...

United Kingdoms of the Netherlands News 1950

In general, the French government would not make any special attempts to force the Dutch toward one solution or another - although their strong inclination is to support the Dutch government with all reasonable measures, including military. That said... N'dofa is still very high on France's $#!( list, so if we know where he is... hm, well...

British Empire News 1950

Quoted The Socialist parties have been raised to pre-eminence and power far beyond their numbers and are seeking everywhere to obtain totalitarian control. Mmm, yeah, the Russian socialists are currently... stagnant, is I think the best word for it. Quoted The German-dominated Russian Government has been encouraged to make enormous rearmament preparations and mass expenditure of millions on a scale undreamed-of are now taking place. Cough cough China. Quoted If now the French Government tries, ...

United Kingdoms of the Netherlands News 1950

Quoted from "Hood" A message was sent to Paris asking for rights to overfly French territory in Northern and Central Africa to begin military support flights. Request accepted, with the additional offer (as per the last central African kerfluffle) of refueling at the airstrips in Niger. If the Dutch would like, they can deploy some of their paratroops into the airstrips at Niamey, Zinder, and Maradi in order to have them closer to the zone of action, in the event they have to be used. ...and, a...

Peru - Sánchez Carrión class Gunboat-Transport

They're some nice ships, I think. Chile did something similar in 1949 (...which I haven't posted yet, shame on me) but those are based on the Crosley-class ships.
