Umm Just out of curiousity. Any way to add German or Italy's navy to the mix as early axis allies ?
Sort of toying with the idea that Japan resells the Marianas to the Germans and the Germans base a fleet out of there as allies of the Japanese.
Or of Course could include a replay of the Russo Japanese war with a soviet fleet appearing in the mix.
Just a thought.
The ships could be added in (if you'll notice, there is a full German naval weapon OOB already in), but as yet the nation would have to be set to Japan, or maybe that N3 thing. I've asked Mike to add them (back in beta), and all I was told was that it would be "very hard."
That said, we could certainly add the ships in, and in the commanders file add in German and Italian names. The nationality would be wrong, but everything else would appear as it should. That said, thanks to the limit of naval devices, as it stands now there can be a French, British, American, Japanese, and Russian navy in at the same time. The Germans can be added in, but to make room for some French devices, I have had (in the working 1.2x patch on my hard drive) to combine some German devices, such as the 10.5cm SK, 10.5cm Ubts, and 10.5cm Tbts guns into a single 10.5cm Kanone. But it is still possible (and on the list. War Plan Black could be very fun! Especially with what if ships such as the Mackensens).
I know this is an old post but still someone might read this,I think the game is fab and talking about the Germans in here as a wish list I have taken the liberty of creating Germanys High Seas Fleet art, the vast majority off her ships have been completed at time of writing this,from her Dreadnoughts down to all the Light cruisers,I'm adding more every week,plus I have also done all Italian Dreadnoughts,with there other ship types being added very soon,so both the Germans & Italians can be in the game fantastic or what yabbydabbydoo
If interested in getting the above ship art they are available for download from links inside my posts regarding Britains Grand Fleet v Germanys High Seas Fleet,please take the time to find out thanks,I want to keep this game active and alive and kicking for as long as possible it rocks !!!!!!!!
