Hrafnagud.... Thats really nice and thanks for the stats as well.

Now I can add a few more ghost from the past to my mod Thanks again !!

That cammo seems better than WW2 style - WWI ships seem to have generally better paint jobs.

Just realised I gave you a top speed of 23 for Olympic - actually Olympic could make 24 knots easily, whereas Titanic made 23 knots (Olympic had better machinery yielding more SHP, if I recall correctly - I think she went well above 50,000 SHP on occasions).

So you can increase Olympic's top speed to 24, and consequently maneuver value should go up to 18.

Titanic chowed through a lot of coal - about 6,600 tons - to cruise for eight days/4,000 nautical miles. Olympic was converted to oil firing in 1919, as a consequence of which her fuel bunkerage decreased to 5,500 tons.

Many thanks - I will amend them

Got any other nice ships up your sleeve??

One ship I always wanted to try was HMS Hood.

I am especially interested in odd and obsolete ships any potential nation - its all to add some chrome as my mod has assumed less scrapping interwar :)

Added you to the credits in the readme already.

Yes - apologies, it did not allow me to upload .bmp. Simply change the file extensions to .bmp as opposed to .jpg.

I need to get WinZip so I can upload the unaltered bitmap files.

Yes I use Ifran?? free program. You cannot just change the . jpg to .bmp extention I was told, it has to be kind of converted. Nevermind all working now and many thanks. Had this problem once before

Do you have suggested starting armaments for the Hood?

the other item I am after is a proper French FP for their ships? Trouble is I am not sure how to add plane are as my partner did it but is off the scene for a while. We are using RA8.0 as a base so need to be careful not to upset the existing files.

And here is Olympic (in her WWI Dazzle camouflage when she was used as a troop ship).

Re French floatplanes - depends which era?

Loire 130 for the big surface combatants.

Besson MB.411 for the Surcouf.

Check out LST's Bottlenecks mod - he added the Surcouf to his mod.

OK thanks but I need the individual plane files I assume - how do I get those? And how do I add them. I am fine with ships but have no idea on planes as in my mod my old opponent did that but he is off the scene for the immediate future.

I have the sub already :)
