CarnageINC -> What to do when waiting for a turn..... (8/31/2011 2:15:25 AM)

After a short break from WitE I had forgotten how bad it is to have nothing to do while waiting for your turn to arrive. I'm at a loss, I feel like a baby without the blanket, a fish out of water, a smoker without a cigarette....I got the jitters![sm=dizzy.gif]

At first it was just like, "OH I got some spare time, lets try out WitE again"[8D]. After turn two it became "Wow I actually did miss this, maybe I should just check my email"[:)]. The third and forth turns were "I wonder if Red is playing his turn, I best check my email...just in case"[sm=00000117.gif]. The fifth and sixth turns started to get like "OH GOSH! I hope Red got my turn, he must have of gotten my turn...I'll just recheck my email"[sm=sad-1361.gif]. The seventh turn was "Is my email working right?!?...did I send that turn???...I know I sent the turn, I'll just check my email again...for the fourth time..."[sm=nono.gif].

Now it's *YAWN* "Just wokeup, I'll take a peak at my inbox", then later "break time, just a looksy",noon rolls around "Yummy its lunch, but first lets look at the emails", work drags on "Is it break time again...wouldn't you know it, my browser just happened to be opened to my emails", Walk in the door..."I'll be there in a bit honey, just gotta check my email". After dinner "...it's okay if I just stare at my email inbox from time to time...right?"

Does this mean I'm addicted....again?!? [:(]

In my case, getting a PhD thesis written.

That's really cool Tarhunnas [:)] From the screenshot I gather it's some sort of continuous/real-time naval combat system, isn't it?

Yes, it is actually one minute segments, but the action and gameflow is continuous. It covers any naval action in WW1, from a single ship duel up to Jutland.

Looks like it's almost done: there are quite a few scenarios there. Any plans on releasing it?

BTW, I'm no WW1 naval warfare grog, but the second Allied flag is... Scotland?

I don't know really, I am not sure it is up to current standards in graphics. I have mostly done it for fun. I've been at if off and on for several years. The plan is to make a campaign where the user builds his own ships, a little like in Master of Orion, but in a WW1 era world. I started with the combat system, that is almost finished, and ship construction is done, so all I need to do is throw the campaign together.

Aaw...! It's the naval ensign of imperial Russia - and the current Russian naval ensign!

Edit: BTW, to be really correct, the allies in WW1 are actually Germany and Austria-Hungary, the Triple Alliance (minus Italy). France, Britain and Russia are the Entente.

I have to say I feel honored that someone would consider making a WWI game that involves the, back then, very powerful Austrian Navy! - the moment I have seen these names of the Battleships...well - being an officer in this very army I should say "I stood up and saluted"... - but not quite....got close though [:'(]

and I'd also have to ask about any future release date! [:)]

WOW, that looks totally cool Tarhunnas [X(] Have you heard of the Avalanche Press "Great War at Sea" boardgames? Here is the link. http://www.avalanchepress.com/line_GWAS.php

I have most of them, both WWI and WWII. This looks like a close proximity to those. Looks great hope you can release it someday, I definitely would love to have a WWI era naval sea game that is comprehensive. [:)]




Michael T -> RE: What to do when waiting for a turn..... (9/1/2011 10:32:57 PM)

Very cool sir!

Next up could you do one on Trafalgar?

Now that would be a cool idea, Napoleonic era naval warfare! Especially the part about building your own ships [&o]

No problems really, entirely feasible. I would just have to redo stuff for sailing ships. Just a lot of work...




daft -> RE: What to do when waiting for a turn..... (9/1/2011 11:00:16 PM)

Tarhunnas,

What's it written in?




Michael T -> RE: What to do when waiting for a turn..... (9/1/2011 11:09:29 PM)

I would love a age of sail game. I played the old AH game WSIM and now GMT's Flying Colors. Something like those on PC would be fab. Bring it on, I would be your first customer.

The Austro-Hungarian navy is kind of cool, I always had a soft heart for it. [:)]

As I said, I am not sure the graphics are up to current standard, but once I am satisfied with it, I might try to get it published.

Anyone seriously interested in playtesting it can PM me.

Have you tried Age of Sail II? That's fairly good, and it's got full 3D.
