General Victory Belles Questions Thread

There will be DEs. Lighter vessels may appear as we go along, but not in '39 (well, with a really unusual exception, that is.)

 

That was a pretty quick answer. And a cool answer at that. Great. :) Does that include Italian TBs and TB/DEs (i.e. Spica, Orsa etc...)?

Not in '39. It's possible for the future, but unlikely- very light raiding forces like those might appear as a part of your Base, though.

 

Edit: Now that I think about it, though, the Team did discuss the Spicas as possibly appearing.

Well, the Orsas were basically DEs - with a full-load displacement larger than most DEs, and the Spicas certainly outgunned most DEs, even if they didn't outmass them, so I wouldn't call them light, but...

 

Well, it's up to the dev team, anyway :)

Yep! You won't see them in '39, but it's possible you may see them in the future. We'll see! :)

 

Not a problem. Unlike the fans of other navies, most of my favorite ships will already be there in '39 anyway :P

With some of the designs I have to wonder if you guys have plans when some folks throw a shit fit due to perceived insults or "appropriation" or what have you. This game should be niche enough that it shouldn't be an issue but with how people are now a days.

You mean cultural appropriation? It's already happened, of course. But that's the thing: in a globalized world, everybody can enjoy everyone else's culture. Of course, if we can *improve* our depiction of it, that sounds worthwhile and good. But to simply avoid it? No, that we won't do. :)

Let's not ignore HMS Rawalpindi who was just an armed Merchant. Though she's probably a little heavier than a DE

People also forget what actual appropriation is. Wearing something of significance from a culture (ie native American head dress) and wear it as a joke or a fashion with no idea the origin or significance then that is appropriation.

As long as the Belles are representative of the cultures they're depicted as appearing from, I wouldn't call it appropriation. I just hope the Belles shown in more regional or isolated ethnic dress are respective of their cultures. Otherwise the diversity so far claimed for the game would be illusory. :(

 

That said, what I've seen gives me great hope. Otherwise I wouldn't have invested literally an entire weekend, three days, from morning to night on this thing. ^.^;

They are partially representative- they are an amalgam of many things, related to the Nation, the culture they come from, and so on. But they are rarely 100% anything, for obvious reasons! :)

Fair enough, as you've been trying to drill into my very thick, bony skull. I'm learning, though!

Well, that's not to say a Belle wouldn't favor one aspect of her origin over another... ;)

 

Say for example Rawalpindi favoring her Indian heritage more than her British

So Legate you make now the job of nautilus despite he special was recruited to lessen your load? How will you handle all the work once Academagia get full alive again with nautilus put to other work because he never was needed for the forum?

Definitely. :)

 

Schwarzbart;

 

Oh, Nautilus has been around for years, but is new to moderating. I guess I like it too much.

 

But Academagia is my first responsibility. Until that explodes again, though, I'm chatting here, too. :)

Question: Will DDs and Submarines be the lightest vessels in game (in terms of both displacement and armament)?

 

While I realize that stopping at DDs would probably be easier in terms of game design, some DEs and auxiliary ships have really interesting histories...

 

I was hoping to find some few Canadian 'Flower-Class Corvettes' because of their history & turret emblems on them. I hope in the '40 update we can at least get HMCS Sackville, HMCS Ville De Quebec, and a few others I made note of. They'd be interesting to have with how 'fancy' they would appear. Many nice 'Flower-Class Corvettes' to have fun with :). Hoping similar would happen to other nations to have some 'escort' type assistance.

Question, for balance sake. Will Graf Zeppelin appear at launch? She was never finished IRL so we don't have a commission date but was launched Dec 8th 1938.

 

I ask so Germany can have at least one Aircraft carrier.

Wow its the first that I heard that the German had a Aircraft carrier in work in front of WW2.

How did this go along with the ban of motorized aircraft Germany had?

...If that logic were to apply, Italy could have two modern battleships of the Littorio-class at launch, and the other two by 1940. And Japan could have both Yamato-class battleships, too.

 

And how would Italy's lone aircraft carrier work? She was already launched, although not as an aircraft carrier, by 1939! :wacko:
