With the recent changes in use of the Nazi symbol in games announced by the German A.G.https://edition.cnn.com/2018/08/10/europe/germany-video-games-nazi-symbols-intl/index.html), will we be seeing a re-skinning of German warships, flags, etc. to properly reflect that period of time the ships represent?

The last thread in this topic last week got locked cause it went into politics really quickly. 

The general consensus was that we doubted it would happen.

Someone noted that the swastika is still illegal in Russia.  That's all you need to know.

I really don't care if the swastika is on the flag. What I would like to see though is period appropriate flags for the Germans, Imperial flag for that period, Weimar for the Wiemar Republic period and the current flag for the remaining time.

there are issues in Germany regarding the Imperial Flag, thus it is not included

Last night I experienced this from both sides. First, while in my Tirpitz at full health I ended up at the head of a cap push, and ate a full salvo of torps from a sneaky Asashio. Later, I had a full health Edinburgh go flush broadside to my Massachusetts at a distance of about 10km. I don’t think that the guy had a chance to crap himself before my guns erased him.

All I have been able to find on that is public display in Bavaria and a computer game is definitely not public display.

I understand that their was a recent change in the laws in Germany, to allow for the Swastika to be used in Electronic Media/ Computer Games. I would like to see the swastika on the German flag, as that is historically accurate for the era of World of Warships. The Rising Sun flag should be in game as well....

There are mods for this, so there is no reason for them to waste time re-skinning. 

WG got rid of threads that had the mods for it, and from what ive heard you'll be banned if they find out you have a mod for it in the game, how true that is i dont know,

I know about that, I was replying to Lord_Slayer on the Imperial flag.

That sounds like an urban legend.

Not true.  I run both mods.

And no political comments, please.  You might want to edit your post.

Well, that's what I hear.  It may be illegal to display it publicly.  Or you could have been dealing on the black market... :Smile_hiding:  I recall how, in Communist Poland, certain shady characters were so eager to purchase dollars from us at double and triple the official exchange rate.

Personally, I think they should make it so that the generic flag flies typically, but only when a ship is sunk it turns into a swastika.:fish_viking:

Historical accuracy.

I think they're very sensitive to the issue for obvious reasons and FYI I did get a strike for improper use of the 4 letter word "N_ z _", so don't throw it around.

Is this a good thing in making a point or one's self-defense lol?

I can't see this thread lasting very long at all :)
