Warships would not accelerate to full speed.

As per the title: I played a couple of games and my ships would not accelerate to full speed, though it was indicated at "Full".

I'll try again later when I can play, but until then: any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Any maneuver causes ships to slow down. It usually takes a long straight run at full power with literally no rudder inputs to reach full speed. Sometimes this can take like 2 minutes.

Yep: not a maneuver issue. I was flat out in the Dunkerque trying to go places and she barely cracked 21 knots. I was eliminated pretty quickly (more quickly than usual...)

 

Sims just poked along until it was torped...

 

Maybe when I start up the game again it will sort out the glitch.

Yep, agreed, seen it yesterday, my Myoko at full sped in a straight line was passed by a New Mexico.  WAIT! WHAT!! yep, no lie  Exited game and came back in about an hour later, did not see it happen again.

The ships reach full speed but I think they scaled down the ratio to speed, The sensation of speed seems to be slower than normal it feels like a across the board adjustment. The Scale Speed has differently changed.:hmm:

Any BB needs about 1 min to reach full throttle, if not touching rudder, in my experience. From sluggish SC or Bismarck's glorious 30 knots.

Acceleration is not linear. In a BB, it takes a while to accelerate from zero and it also takes a while to accelerate from ~90% of full speed to 100% of full speed.
