I tried the demo for this on steam, which consisted of sinking a moored wooden ship with an ironclad and maybe something else , I don't remember because it didn't really grab me, tried once and uninstalled. Graphics are nice though.

I also have the original Victory at Sea and never got very far into it. It may have just been an unfamiliar control scheme since I'm not always willing to learn new tricks anymore. Or too much of an rts feel, though I do prefer naval games real time.

I've had a couple of Ironclad era themed games, and personally I've just found them as boring as most of the historical accounts I've read of the ship to ship combat of the era.

Is there a political aspect for potentially triggering foreign intervention (ref. the Trent affair) ?

I have been following Victory at Sea Pacific for a long time, and based on recent forum posts and reviews, it still needs a lot of work. I think I will hold off for a good while to see if the developers actually finish this game.

Not currently.

The dev encourages discussion of features like this in the early access phase.

Victory At Sea Ironclad | Live developer stream 3 | 23 Feb 2021

As part of the build up to the Early Access launch this Thursday, Evil Twin Artworks played another round of their upcoming game large scale, RTS sandbox epic, Victory At Sea Ironclad. This time Asid from Dogs Of War Vu fired a volley of questions at James.....

This time round we take a deeper look at the controls and campaign as we head towards Early Access, there are so many features in this new game and we cover lots of questions. Below are some of the questions (not in order)

Q. Timberclads, Cottonclads and Tinclads included?
Q. What game engine are you using?
Q. How is this different from Victory At Sea Pacific?
Q. Early Access Road Map
Q. How resource management & regions work?

Q. Hit calculation by Hitbox/hitpoints or location for damage?
Q. Supply for the forts + ships also repair?
Q. DLC...Any plans?

Q. Is there a lot of micromanaging? Can the AI take over certain aspects?
Q. Auto resolve battles?
Q. Multiplayer?
Q. What about turn based for people who like that sort of pace?
Q. Ship design? Is it a possibility? Design and build a ship?
Q. You can trade with foreign powers. Can this be controlled by the AI? How deep is this feature? How many products etc?
Q. historical battles? Hampton Roads. for example
Q. Fog of war? Intelligence reports etc?
Q. Asymmetric warfare?
Q. How different will it be to play the other side?
Q. The in-game ships/boats. Are the stats/designs based off their real world counterparts. Historically accurate?

Q. Linux version?
Q. You can load the ships with troops. I know they are not controllable but can they be modded? Any future plans for controllability?
Q. is there any type of order delay?
Q. Tell me about the day/night cycle. How does it affect play?

I'm interested in the game and appreciative that he'd take the time to go through all that, but I wish there was a quick and dirty summary video for those that don't have an hour and 19 minutes to watch this.
