    I had been waiting for the Lies episode, but thanks to the D-Day episode they've just put up *hint hint*, I re-checked the 4th Bismark episode. in the comments portion, they note that sponsored series don't get Lies episodes, so I'm posting what they wrote as footnotes:

    Goeben/Yavuz and Kongou-sama? I'm sure the jokes about walkers would come fast and furious but they'd certainly have a lot to talk about. Count me in. :-)

    Another ojousama pairing. And yes, they have a definite relationship - no "in a way". BCS made that very clear by Kongou's Belle's appearance, methinks. I'd more think of Hood as Kongou's niece than a cousin. But that's just me.

    This topic will sum up suggestions and thougts about "How to improve the Game" [~ I wil update the first post frequently, so don't wonder about the amount] ________________________________________________________________ ::Legend:: Bold # Number => new report, which doesn't got recognzied from the developers yet. If they put a comment - it turns normal. Italic part => main problem, which should be fixed. ________________________________________________________________ #19) Mark the next day: You really need to mark somehow the next day. It could be a circle around the day or just bold letters - but you definitly need to show which day needs to be planned next. The game isn't really beginner friendly and this something which makes easier to follow the week & events #18) Saving: When you save you have to confirm the file through clicking with the mouse. Would be easier just to press "enter" since you allready named the save-game with the keyboard letters ^^ #17) Choice options just at the text end: You said in the manual that is not necessary to read the whole texts shown in the middle to choose an option. Even though I guess it would be better if the options you choose will just appear after you read/scrolled through all the pages of the event, when you have to dicide what to do. Besides it's more reasonable just to decide what you will do know when you read the whole thing and not before, but furthermore it doesn't distract that much (~ at the introduction event there was a red choice and it was hard to ignore it to just read the text). You could argument that not everyone likes to read all the stuff - on the otherhand just people who like to read texts will get the game. Allowing these players to enjoy the event and not spoil the outcome - will very likely be pleased (~ and it shouldn't be to hard to make the choices invisible as long as the reader didn't got to the last page) #16) Next page instead of Scrolling: this could be possible be done and at least ease the "mass text discriptions" which is quite hard to read. It's often as I scroll down the information, I don't find the spot where I left the sentece immediately and have to re-read the last sentence which is quite tiring. Instead of scrolling down the page, you could make for all discription the "next page/previous page" scrolling like for the attributes - this allows the players to keep a good overview about the text, since he sees at the next page where he can continue. It's also easier for the haste ones - who just like to see the facts at the last page or starting every article at the top (~ therefore page 1). If its for people, where the potrait could be at the first page adn the description etc. at the following, or for phrases - it would definitly makes it easier to follow the whole text #15) Explanation about the days & shorten the plan phase: Why are some marked blue ? Why green ? Moreover you should cut the option to scrool through the weeks and just show the current one. Otherwise its too confusing, since you get the feeling that you need to plan everything. If special events need to prepared - there could be a "Image Calendar" which just shows thesedates but don't let you put up the actions right there... #14) Text-fields: Use the whole space! Could be that it is just my resolution (~ even though there should be an option for such a case), but the text-field in the middle doesn't seem to be proper filled. The text starts in the center and don't use the upper part of the field. If there would be a picture of an event, okay - but if there is just an empty space it should be used for the words and not wasted. This would allows to use less pages and therefore a more fluently reading #6) Selecting Mouse: If you hint your mouse over the letters - it turns into a marking sign. Since you can't copy & paste something, it would be more usefull to cut it out. Instead of that, you could generally use an mouse icon like a "feather" or a "ward" instead of windows normal arrow. #5) Mouse Clicks: It's just a convenvient suggestion. Perhaps you could use the right-mouse button for the "See previous" and the left click for "See next" stuff, if you click at the right information window. Would be easier instead of clicking at the small buttons and so far the right button don't seem to have a function. Moreover it's better to let a simple left click or space at the keyboad skip to the next event-page, if no answer is necessary. It's quite awkward allways pressing the button if there wasn't a requirement to check a choice but just to continue the reeding #4) Updated Manual: Include the addtions about the attributes from your thread in the manual ! #3) Character creation: Put the choice of "Astrology", "Heritage" and "Omen" at different windows after another. It's great that you get such a wide choice - but need to scroll them and fluently switch between this options is a little confusing. A better overview throug "seperating" and offer them each after another would probably be better. Moreover I recommend to change the order of the information, showing first the "Explaination" over the "Which influece has it on my stats" seems more Roleplaying and interesting. Also should the text-field back to the top if you click at a new one (~ it's quite annoying scrolling down the text-field to read the explaination about the heritage, click at a new one and the text-field needs to be scrolled at the top manually) #2) Events choice: The manual explains that green choices probably will work, while purple ones are mostly unlikely (~ others scale between them). I guess it would be more reasonable to colour the un-likely ones red, as the opposite to green and not just purple (~ it's even explained later on at the manual with a "red example"). Could be that you allready changed that - since in your further additional Information you just show up the 5 colours... #1) UI-stats-design: I just read the manual - but I allready get the feeling that it would be better to change the order of Attributes, at least of the "indirect ones" like Stress/Vitality/Encumbrace/Concealement. It seems to be better - to seperate "Vitality" and the rest + above (~ therefore => luck - a little space - Vitality - a little space - Stress etc.). The point is, that Vitality is the only one which should be high for benefits - in contrast to the others (Stress/Encumbrace/Concealement), which should be low ________________________________________________________________ Last Update: 14.08.2010 / 12:55 - updated the suggestion status - posted the most urgent improvements

    This one's old and kinda well known but funny to me none the less. A German Coast guardsman stands the radio watch when suddenly a distress call comes over the speakers in English. Unknown ship: Mayday! Mayday! This is the passenger liner Elizabeth, we are taking on water! Repeat, We are sinking!" The German Coast Guardsman remembers as much english as he can to decipher the message before responding. "Vhat are you sinking about?"

    It's a bow in whatever media you were looking the constellation up in. In the strictest sense, constellations are stick-figures most of the time, so it's up to the artist that adds the details on what those might be. I've seen plenty of interpretations where Orion is wielding a club, so a sword is fine too, to me. I did find the almost non-existent belt she has to be odd though...

    Not exactly. They've reached the goals. Basically what it means is that it's not gonna be in the game when it launches but there's a chance that it will be implemented later on. Remember, VB's releasing major updates per year (not exactly, because there'll be major updates in between then more than likely and other updates and patches, but trying to get this point across). When they launch, it will be 1939 in game year. Then they will release the 1940 Belles a year later, 1941 Belles after that, and so on till at the least 1945-1946. It might be that a few months into 1939 they release the naval terms encyclopedia, or it might be with the launch of 1940 Belles or later. In a similar vein, will there be a kind of "collector's catalog", a place where it shows how many Belles are in the game and has the Belles you have gotten in there, similar to what Kancolle has? If there is I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't till after 1939, but as a collector myself (I hoard everything in Fallout 4 and Skyrim and want to collect every single Belle I can just to have them and show I have every Belle) it's useful to see how many are left to add to my collection

    When you tie your shoelaces together you form a knot. A knot is what you form when you tie off a rope or a string, whether to an object or another string or rope...or even to itself or within itself. When I pull out an extension cord and string it out, I without fail form a knot somewhere in the middle despite it having no such knot when I wound it up. It's black magic I swear.

    @Gerrion If you want the cup/beverage of the german "Joe" you would find it to be a "cup of otto". The "average joe" in german is "Otto Normalverbraucher" (Otto Normalconsumer). One explanaition is it originated in a filmfigure by th name Otto in a post WWII movie about a man who has to arrange with coming back from war and getting foodstamps for a "Normalverbraucher". The movie ("Berliner Ballade", 1948) was quite popular at the time and if you ever saw the Bond movie "Goldfinger": Otto Normalverbraucher was played by Gerd Fröbe. I learned about it 5 years ago and it's on wikipedia. But it has a flaw: As far as I know it there were no foddstamps titled "Normalverbraucher". But it's a movie, they maybe made that up. However the other explanation and the one I refer to has to do with cars. It's the one I learned first as a child: A normal worker usually drives or drove a car with a four-stroke combustion engine which uses the petrol referred until a few years ago as "Normalbenzin" (Normalpetrol) or short "Normal". And in germany a four-stroke combustion engine that uses petrol and not diesel is called an Ottomotor. One of the inventors of the four-stroker had that last name. Recently the "Normal" vanished from the market (dunno why) and Euro95 or as we call it in german "Super" became the standard petrol. Why had Joe Normal an Ottoengine? Diesel is cheaper to refill but the car is more expensive to buy. Only people who travel long distances with the car considered it. And "Super" and "Super plus" were considered for richer people and fancier cars and always more expensive than "Normal". So a average german drove a car with Ottomotor and consumed "Normal" with it. So that's how you get from a cup of coffee to a cup of petrol. And just for the sake of completeness: If you go with the Movie version it would probably be a cup of milk, since coffee and tea were only occasionally available. The beer thing is a totally different story.

    Downloadable Content It is common these days - seeing in big AAA titles like Dragon Age or Mass Effect. Another examples are Fallout 3 or Oblivion. Think about as a "partiall Add-on", which you get through a download. They are often sold for a few bucks and add some Stuff like items etc. Since Legate said it will be free - you can think of it as a content patch. But don't get misslead, in general you often have to pay for it. Yourself have to choose if its worth for you or not Lets see what the upcoming "content Patch" (~ at least you named him so) will contain tomorrow. Hopefully they can really handle the fontsize like they mentioned it

    Since the game appears to run full screen, it might be possible to optionally adjust the moniutor resolution. Most monitors made in the last few years can accept this.
