I'm FAIRLY certain the St Louis never had transparent bridge windows before now.

Now get moving on adding that must have feature to all the other older ships WG! As a collector of ships I require it! :Smile_izmena:

Judging by this early game photo, it appears that you're correct.

I enjoy looking at the detail of many of these ship models. WG has really put some effort into them.

Actually the Pan Asia tier 8 is a Gleaves class they followed the Benson and directly preceded Fletcher

Ok so, the ONLY other ship I was able to find that has been updated with transparent bridge windows is the Mikasa.

Its hard to tell from this angle and because the windows themselves are rather small, but they are in fact transparent. And I know for a FACT the Mikasa didn't originally come with transparent windows!

 

This is seriously cool though, and I really hope WG adds this to more ships, especially the older ship models as they aren't quite up to snuff as the newer ones. *cough*Iowa*cough*

Pretty much the same ship benson/greaves/Bristol/Livermore haha, but the bridge on both is the same that’s why I said it.

WG makes subtle changes to older ship models just about every major patch.  They usually have a blurb at the bottom of the patch notes.  This change is likely from 0.6.11, which has the following at the bottom:

Ship Appearance Changes

Improved appearance of tier I and II ships with better rendering of thin elements like rigging. This correction won't affect performance:

  • Wickes, Wakatake, Derzki, St. Louis, Kolberg, Tenryu, Bogatyr, South Carolina, Nassau, Kawachi

Benson and Gleaves classes were identical in appearance except one had flat funnel sides and one had rounded. All other differences were in the internal machinery configuration, which is obviously invisible in the model in the game.

Comparing the Bridges of Iowa and Missouri with those transparent windows..

Montana still has em as well, for reasons unknown, I would love to see transparent Montana.

Yeah, but this is saying for "thin elements" so I always assume its for the cables, railings, and other really thing rope like stuff. Would be nice if WG actually wrote out a little more detail on whats changing...

Also I'm fairly certain I checked the Wickes and I dont think its bridge windows were transparent... I'll have to check again later

Actually, Harekaze is a higher res model compared to Kagero. It has nearly twice the poly count I believe. Just compare the two in port and you can see that small details on Harekaze are actually part of the model, whereas on Kagero they're part of the textures.

So in other words, WG needs to get on with updating Kagero's model.

Missouri also has transparent bridge windows, where Iowa does not.

 

Missouri also has all sorts of goodies visible in the bridge. Radar screens, sound powered phones, binnacle, fire extinguishers...
