"Dull" look of Hamburg port

I know the port is trying to replicate late afternoon/ early evening lighting, but it dulls and washes out the look of the ship.   Also dulls the camo icons when selecting expendable camos.

Seems similar to other "industrial" ports such as London and Kure, accounting for time of day.  Fjords is not an industrial port so isn't as good a comparison.

I think that they were trying to emulate B&W, therefore emulating a sort of...placing in time sort of thing. I never use "their" ports so....I could care less.

Agree. I ONLY use Fjord as my port since it has the best lighting and makes your ships look really good.

Fjord looks good but Sarushima is even better.

It's supposed to represent smog from the factories, but who really wants that?  Keep your ships in Norway.  The air is cleaner and better for your camos.

I always have it set to philippines.   It irritates me that they change it all the time and I have to change it back.  Where's the checkbox for don't _____ change my port?

I usually have nothing but praise for the art team but the Hamburg port's latest version is bland at best. All those "banners" and flags seem sprinkled all over like during a modern sports event. Also, knowing that those iron crosses are actually stand-ins for swastikas doesn't help the overall enjoyment. I can't even put my finger on what the main problem is but I disabled Hamburg shortly after getting the patch.

I agree that the banners kinda ruin the look but i mostly play German battleships so i keep Hamburg as my port plus i love hearing the church bells in the distance.

Yes, the port is quit hazy. They wanted to emphasize that it's an industrial port so they turned the color saturation way down.

They also mispelled "Deutscheland".  It's "Deutscheland" not "Deutschland".  Red Horde misinformation...

I miss the Winter/New Years Kure already. I liked it; it was nice and colorful.

...NOW THAT! IS A GREAT LOOKING PORT :cap_like:

 

speaking of ports... I always hated that they keep removing and changing them. Would've been awesome to have all of the past ports (including the different seasons)

You are incorrect. As a German speaker I can tell you that the German name for Germany is indeed "Deutschland".

You really need to run filters on this game to get it to look good.  They've built it to run on potato computers and for some reason it makes it look all tator'd on all computers

Hamburg is a good port.

I grew up in Baltimore where its one time the very best in industry. Get a Union Hourly or Salaried with the Port or Railroad to 30.00/hr.  Or in one of the Shipping. All of that is poof now. Even the shipyards in if you are a shipping Pilot or a Port State Crane Union Operator with senority, you can make 300,000 to 500,000 depenending on your annual conditions.
