Duds, yes- but other types of defects, such as the circular track, are not in the game. At least not in '39. :)

On a similar note, more than likely not in '39, but will Belles have damaged modules that affect them?

As an example, Bismarck gets torpedo hit that damages her rudder. It not only does damage to her, but means that she's easier to hit for the Morgana because she's unable to change direction

Are we gonna get more info on the morgana soon? 

 

While I'm here, how do ranks work in the International Naval Protection Force? Do we ever become more than captains, and if so what bonuses does that bring?

SS;

Oh boy, I blocked those notifications first thing!

As to the Morgana, no comment. ;)

I can't comment on whether you will rise above the rank of Captain (*cough*Likely by the end*cough*), but you hold rank in your Nation's Navy, not the Force.

So, LOM, I noticed you post across all the forum sections. Do you not sleep, are you more than one person? (My name is legate for we are many?)

Originally I was more than one person, and sometimes I still am, but mostly it's just me.

I sleep. Not as much as I would like to, alas. :)

*exhausted* Finally... 90...wait 73 pages.... done.... all read.

And I still have a question:
If I remember it correctly, the flag commandos are achieved via different Belles. If once achieved, are they only availabale when I use that specific Belle or anytime?

Additional questions:

Have some countries unique Fleet Commands like "Crossing the T" or "Gefechtskehrtwendung" (yeah, they were big one World War ago in '39 but as an example)?

Are there other ways to get those nice commandos?

AK;

They can be taught to other Belles.

Crossing the T isn't a command- the situation itself can be mimicked by the system, but I don't think you'll see it in '39. That is true for Gefechtskehrtwendung, and the implications of a similar tactic by the Americans.

Will the different (former, as this is set in 39) british countries with their own navies get their own ports or will they all be based out of england? 

 

If so could you base yourself in another british country later (I remember you saying something to that effect earlier when I asked about the base in Bermuda) I'm sure you guys have many aspiring captains from former british territories.

Was there ever a discussion about that repair dock queue I suggested a while back?

SS;

There are bases in the game, yes- but you would begin near England.

Dano;

Yep- it's a bit more complicated than a queue, though, because of resource costs and how the server would track that. It doesn't seem likely that it would be implemented, at least at start. :(

I don't know if this was answered already, but how do we get more Belles?  Is it going to be gacha-based or resource-based a la Kancolle?  Also, are some Belles going to be rarer than others?

We get more Belles by collecting certain items that relate to said Belle, so we get them via drops like a RPG.

And is there a way to get specific materials or is it total rng? (locations, priority targets) 

Also is the nation you choose going to effect the materials you get in any way?

Will we have more than one task force under our command? If so, can we assign them all different task or is it a one by one thing you need to be present for?

SS;

Certain locations for most, although some are much harder than others.

The Nation you choose has an effect on the automatic generation of Resources, but it's fairly small.

You have one active Fleet for carrying Missions, etc. Other Fleets may be switched to, of course.

So you can't say, send a fleet to escort a convoy while the main fleet takes combat roles?

 

Or have a support fleet assist the main fleet?

SS;

They cannot support. They can be transiting Regions while you battle with your Main Fleet, though- that's kind of like escorting a Convoy, I suppose. :)

Fascinating.  I wonder if the items are going to be generic...or will a few relate to the ship in question?

I can't wait to try it out once the game goes live :).

Procyon;

They are unique to the Belle.

Once you have a Belle, you can use anyone's Vestures to upgrade them, but their specific ones are better.
