  1. Guardian54's Boat Feasibility Checks

    I look forward to your second draft design @Guardian54. I'm currently in my 2nd year of Naval Architecture and hope to design my own passenger liner in 3rd year for my project. I could always put her on hold and design a general cargo ship or tanker (another ship type that is easier and more manageable).
  2. Guardian54's Boat Feasibility Checks

    In-training Naval Architect here. You would need to start by knowing the Lightship VCG (vertical center of gravity); that is, without the ship loaded with cargo. Then I would have to make a Weights Table to get an estimate of the ship KG with all your containers and their respective VCGs. Some things to consider (suggestions for revision): Beam to Draft ratio -> 2.5 -> Draft = 7.2 m (loaded); I think 10 m is too deep (1.8 ratio as you have it) No. of containers -> cut down to 180 (36 containers per hold x 5 holds) -> weight = 180*40 = 7,200 metric tons Calculations: - Hull Depth = 4.5 m (midships) + 7.2 m = 11.7 m - Loaded Displacement = LBP*Beam*Draft*Block Coeff.*1.025 t/m^3 = 118*18*7.2*0.8*1.025 = 12,540 metric tons - Cargo Weight = 7,200 metric tons (from above) - Estimated Lightship = Loaded Displ. - Deadweight (Cargo) = 12,540 - 7,200 = 5,340 metric tons (includes machinery, hull weight, fluids; excludes fuel, food, crew, etc.) - Estimated Lightship VCG (ignoring plate thicknesses) = 6.52 m from keel (assumed a 2 m double bottom height) - Overall ship KG estimate (ignoring plate thicknesses for lightship and only taking cargo into account): *Cargo weight per stack = 40 t/container x 6 containers x 5 holds = 1200 t/stack Item Mass (t) VCG (m) Moment (t-m) Lightship 5,340 6.52 34816.8 Cargo 1 1200 2.625 3150 Cargo 2 1200 3.875 4650 Cargo 3 1200 5.125 6150 Cargo 4 1200 6.375 7650 Cargo 5 1200 7.625 9150 Cargo 6 1200 8.875 10650 Now, the overall ship VCG (with cargo) = (sum of moments)/(sum of masses) = 76216.8/12,540 = 6.07 m above baseline NOTE: I would still need to estimate the ship's center of buoyancy (KB) and metacentric radius (BM) to get KM. Then subtract KG (VCG) from KM to get estimated GM when fully loaded. I might do that later. This is all I have time for at the moment. Please feel free to pm me for any further questions you may have. I'll give you some time to digest what I've done so far :)
  3. KGV - Burning Down the Enemy Team

    So I had this kind of a game tonight. I think KGV is a pretty damn well strong BB when used correctly. My team realized that I needed help as I pushed against 6 enemy ships on the west side of the map by the "A" cap. Pushed them back and burned them to the waterline as they ran from me. I wonder if this is a really annoying gimmick or actually historically accurate (for British BBs)?
  4. Hamburg Ship ID

    The ocean liner is the SS Cap Arcona. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Cap_Arcona
  5. Just got my Konig!

    Konig was an alright ship for me. For me once I got the T6 Bayern I fell in love with the ship. Currently have over 424,000 ship XP on her (and counting).
  6. sea smackdown

    I was surprised when I woke up one morning and logged into Youtube and saw that the North Carolina game I had played the morning before had been featured on Aetam's channel. Definitely a game that I thought was worth sharing. Also makes me miss my NC since I have sold her and currently grinding through the stock Iowa. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEMIcB2hzLY
  7. I'm finding that to be true at the moment, except for the Tier 3 Bellerophon which is super fun to play and has the longest gun range at that tier. I don't think I will end up keeping the Queen Elizabeth when I get to her, since she is a marginally better than my Warspite (slightly longer gun range but stock turret traverse of 72 seconds, yeah no). I think I will end up keeping the KGV and Lion when I get them.
  8. PT server: no experience points?

    You have to actually play some battleships and once the ships are elited you can convert their ship XP for free XP with doubloons.
  9. UK Battle Mission V bugged?

    Actually yes, right before we won by points I got my last 7k damage on a reversing broadside Tirpitz.
  10. UK Battle Mission V bugged?

    Seems to work fine for me in my Amagi xD Ka-ching. Made 1.145 million in profit with the mission complete and bonuses.
  11. My British CV Lineup Idea

    If we use this for Illustrious' hangar capacity (still lower than her U.S. or Japanese counterparts), it could still work decently well. Her aircraft should be very similar in specs to U.S. ones (which makes sense for this late-WW2 aircraft complement).
  12. My British CV Lineup Idea

    My reasoning behind the specific lineup is to get ships that roughly have the same number of aircraft as each other (with some exceptions that could be "ahistorically" buffed for balance purposes). Specifically, here are the hangar capacity numbers (both in-game and historical, where applicable): Tier IV: Argus (15-18 historical); Langley (30); Hosho (24) Tier V: Hermes (20 historical) or Eagle (25-30 historical); Bogue (28); Zuiho (30) Tier VI: Furious (36 historical) or Glorious (48 historical); Independence (37); Ryujo (48) Tier VII: Illustrious (up to 57 historical); Ranger (73); Hiryu (72) Tier VIII: Ark Royal (72 designed); Lexington (81); Shokaku (72) Tier IX: Implacable (81 historical); Essex (90); Taiho (83) Tier X: Malta (80-108 designed); Midway (136); Hakuryu (100) NOTE: I didn't include the Audacious class hangar capacity at Tier X because she ended up flying postwar jets which meant her aircraft capacity was roughly only 60 (initially). I guess it could be buffed to include higher numbers of WW2 prop aircraft on WG's part. NOTE: Tier 7 is where the biggest imbalance in plane numbers occurs. If we shift "Ark Royal" down a tier (to Tier 7) it could work better, but would still leave a gap at Tier 8. I was thinking slotting in Indomitable there (81 aircraft), but having two Implacable class back-to-back doesn't really make sense. If anyone has any ideas on how to make this work feel free to speak up :D
  13. My British CV Lineup Idea

    Hey guys, I've been thinking about this topic the last few days and wanted to put it out there, even though we are on the verge of the British BBs being released. Here is my idea for the lineup of a full British CV line. I welcome any feedback or comments and suggestions on how WG could balance RN CVs in relation to their U.S. and Japanese counterparts. I'm not that big of a CV player myself, but the British CVs could be something interesting and different compared to the only 2 nations that have CV lines in the game right now. Tier IV - Argus Tier V - Eagle or Hermes (leaning towards Hermes myself) Tier VI - Furious Tier VII - Illustrious Tier VIII - Ark Royal Tier IX - Implacable Tier X - Malta or Audacious
  14. Hey guys, CanadianAdmiral here. Just wanted to share this with the community. Had an amazing battle in my Fiji last night which secured her a permanent spot in my port. So I divisioned up with a friend of mine who just got the Belfast and got into a battle on New Dawn. In general, the battle wasn't looking that good until I came back to defend our base from a superior enemy force moving in. I went on to kill 7 enemy ships in the process of defending our base single-handedly while our remaining DD capped out their base to win us the match. Together, our 2 ships accounted for 10 red ship kills. Attached the replay and in-game screenshots. I was shaking after I finished that battle. It was amazing and I don't think I will be able to replicate this xD 20170807_224759_PBSC107-Fiji_13_OC_new_dawn.wowsreplay
  15. Random Citadels and How They Happen

    @Business6 Yeah I figured it was something like that. Another instance is that I citadeled a bow-on Gneisenau with my Kongo some months ago in roughly the same position as I did with my Amagi to the Kurfurst. Also, bonus pts for being noticed by one of my favorite WoWs Youtubers :D I can thank you for letting me develop the brawling mentality everytime I load up in my BBs (when appropriate of course). It's been quite fun for me.
