Not sure where this question should go.

 

Zoom in on the hulls in game. They are depicted with overlapping, rivetted plates kind of like what the Titanic had.

 

I've been on three of these ships irl, and just double checked via my extensive personal library that this depiction is wrong. They have smooth welded hulls ( with no port holes ).

 

Note also near the stern you have portholes in the black waterline paint.

 

Also, the gun bucklers ( blast bags ) on the main turrets are shown as an off-white which I've never seen. Any photo of these ships irl show they have / had black bucklers.

 

I realize this isn't earth shattering, but, since you seem to be tweaking ship art details in each patch, could you look at these ones?

 

Cheers!

I basically concur though with one main exception.  Those aren't port holes; they're through hulls and appear to be generally close to correctly located.

Have a look at the stern of Missouri in game and you will see a lot of portholes. And then have a look:

I can't figure out how to post images on this Android phone. :)

 

 

 

That, circled in red, is a thru-hull fitting; not a porthole.  Whether there are too many thru-hull fittings, in some wrong locations on the game model remains another question.

Definitely some thru-hull fitting around the stern on the MO, though clearly not super realistically modeled in the game version.

Also, notice all the deformation in the hull plates and modifications made as far as hull fittings from 1943 to recent time.

Yeah I should stop calling them portholes. Reason I was is because of where they have put them all over the hull, it's almost like that was maybe what they were going for?

I don't know what they're thinking is on that but the incorrectly colored blast bags/bloomers and currently missing range finder hardware missing from Montana's main turrets bug me the most.
