  1. Mig, even IRL we misunderstand each other because we can't be in each others' heads - which is probably a good thing! It's 100x worse with text communication with people we don't know IRL so we cannot account for personal nuances. Legate has repeatedly assured you that your feedback is going the same place anyone else's feedback goes. I'd hope you wouldn't withhold your creative energies, whether it be your lovely art or your insightful opinions, just because of a misunderstanding. We've developed a nice family here over the past two years. Instead of a blood bond (Ark Royal, you can get out of my head now) we are bound by a passion for lovely ship spirits. Even families have misunderstandings but we share a bond and will all still come back together after we cool off a bit. Right?
  2. I personally love the updates, even the redacteds. Eventually we will see these dialogues in their intended glory but right now the staff are keeping about half the initial Belles close to their chests so that there are surprises when the game does come out. I think that's wise. They have to consider building excitement when the time comes. I'm totally fine with the delays. Anticipation makes the heart grow fonder and in any case it proves that BCS is dedicated to investing in and releasing a quality product rather than whatever they could throw together with what they had when they started. As one of the handful of Kickstarter "whales" who gave $1000 or more to this game nearly two years ago, I am quite satisfied with where my money has gone.
  3. Very nice!
  4. Don't forget Chiyoda. Seaplanes are planes too!
  5. I'll back Korky. #5
  6. It may be two weeks late, but Happy Mardi Gras to the Victory Belles Krewe!
  7. Mardi Gras will be next Tuesday no matter what the calendar might say. :-)
  8. We've gotten a lot more insight into Goeben over the past nearly two years. She speaks of the Christian heritage of Asia Minor in the Christmas Star events but appears from the Old Dame's Club events to abstain from alcohol like a Muslim. For a German to abstain from social alcohol with friends and instead drink ayran seems a serious decision. I wonder if her history has simply made her pragmatic, or is she something like the Janissaries of antiquity and has she converted?
  9. In 1939 Turkey had been a republic for almost 20 years but was still essentially Muslim in character. Muslims, at least those who submit fully to Allah, are forbidden alcohol. It may be that the Grande Dame abstains out of respect to her adoptive country. A great sacrifice for a German, I know, but the Turks give her great respect in return. As I sit here I am reminded of the Janissaries. The original expert warriors and administrators, not the decadent buffoons they had become by the end of the Ottoman Empire. Christian children who were converted and treated as noble slaves. I wonder how much that mold reflects Goeben?
  10. My answer to the question is Option 3 As far as the fleet - I'm partial to aboriginals and non-Europeans: Axum (African) I-8 (Japanese) Hiryu (Japanese) Chiyoda (she's a carrier, right? :-) ) New Orleans (African American) Rawalpindi (subcontinental Indian) Saguenay (NA aboriginal) Nubian (African) Yavuz (adopted by the Orient) Arizona (NA aboriginal) Kommuna (Russia is both European and Asian) Kongou (adopted by the Orient) Graf Spee (was in Latin waters when she went down) Pola (the history of her namesake has Oriental connections) This is assuming the alternate mechanism I proposed is used.
  11. I realize the current idea is to likely go with one particular person's fleet idea, but can I propose another way of doing this? Everyone who wants to vote lists 14 separate ships they'd like to see. The top carrier vote getter goes on Team A. The second highest goes on Team B. The top sub vote getter goes on Team B. The second highest goes on Team A. Team A gets the highest voted ship. Team B the second highest. Team A the third highest and so on to 10 total ships, skipping over the carrier and sub selected above. BCS can go ahead and double the vote for whoever makes the effort to give a really good justification. Just a thought...
  12. The Mardi Gras commission is well along. The artist has had some live events come up but she's been sharing progress and it's looking nice. :-)
  13. I've reached out to the tried and true and am waiting for a response. We'll see where it goes given Mardi Gras in New Orleans is a little bit more esoteric than Christmas.
  14. Life killed me and I still haven't moved on getting an artist for the Mardi Gras pic. I'm still wanting to commission it, but I'm pretty sure it'll be released sometime between Mardi Gras (next Tuesday) and Easter. Sorry, I'm lame.
  15. Meh, it worked out here.
