I compared the Charleston to St Louis. The Charleston in the game does not have any cranes on the boat deck like the below picture. Looks like the Charleston just kept the aft cranes and got rid of the forward cranes, around 1916 or so. St Louis Had 4 cranes. Also, notice on the bow the old Kedge Anchor is gone!c2215.jpg

In addition, the Jean Bart seems to have no benches. This is such an essential feature of French ships. This was noticed on Zath's stream once, and I commented that it needed a bench buff.

If I am wrong about this, and we simply failed to find one, please enlighten me. I don't have the ship (yet) and can't check.

Why do u want cranes? To lower the life boats? No man, nobody leaves, they fight to death and sink with It. Good old times!

Can you imagine how hot it must have been in this ship, in Panama, in the summer, below decks, at slow speed?

Wonder if he noticed anything fishy about kurf, conq, Henry, most Russian ships, etc...

I notice something wrong with all the ships. The list would be about a page or so long...LOL.

 Example 1:  The A hull Essex has the anchors hanging at the wrong angle they should be the same as the B hull.

Example  2:  Most American ships would have netting around the lower cable of the railing so people won't get washed overboard under the bottom part of the railing!

Example  3: All ships would have zinc bars on the bottom of the hull and rudder to prevent galvanic corrosion.

I could go on and on.

 

The 2 front stack covers are on cold boilers in those engine rooms. They cover the stacks to keep rainwater and maybe critters like birds out.
