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 :)

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.

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

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. ^.^;

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

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.

...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:
