sorry for off topic - if this is inappropriate please delete.. posting this only because the author said the project is put on hold

Naval action did a 1st of April event.. surprising players by replacing 1st rates by battleships
was extremely fun.




maybe we could ask developers to release that 1st of april demo into the world

It does indeed, but when I read 1st Of April... It wasn't an April Fool was it?

It seems it was. See recent "Naval Action" thread I started here. It is an Age of Sail game, but perhaps they have long-term plans for more.

Hello everyone,

Well, it has been a very long time since I posted on here regarding a WW2 battleship / Naval sim.

I have not put my dream to bed... I have always wanted this to happen and it has been a long time contacting people and seeing if someone would like to come on my journey with me.

I have found someone who may put some money up to get things started but just want to state. This is not yet 100% signed off just working on my business plan to table ( wow what a mission that is to do ) and even then he may say no.

And the rest I would look to you guys for a crowdfunding type scenario. How that would look yet is yet to be determined.

Ok so here is an update. So I am super excited and can't wait and I am around 85% there. So I am Putting it out there again.

Frist of who still wants a WW2 Naval sim we are talking above and under the water (Silent Hunter type stuff), 2 theaters Atlantic and Pacific.

I am looking at the DCS model where free to D/L may be 1 or 2 free ships included most likely a PT boat and a very early V/W class destroyer. then pay to captain newer assets as they come along price ranging depending on what type of asset. There will be a multiplayer where all your mates can jump on board and help with the systems of the ship as well as co-op and a single campaign side manly historical. And a mission building aspect.

The dream is to have the most up to date graphics including VR (eye candy to the max) you will be able to walk around most of the ship (to what extent I guess will depend on the size of the ship) fully functional bridge, range finding room, engine room, weapons control and damage systems.

As for the game engine, I will be looking for something that will have all weather types rough seas I want you to have the feeling that you are on a huge battleship as it crashes through the waves and the spray of the foam going everywhere.

Maybe the Star Citizen of the WW2 Naval kind (haha but hopefully not that long to produce but then again who knows)

Still, a heap of work to work out but I have a very clued up guy with me here in NZ and I may even have one of the big named guys who has been there and done that to Mentor me through this. If this goes ahead and everything falls into place I will put up a website where we can all congregate and talk, argue, laugh and cry about what I hope to be the best WW2 Naval sim on the market.

So cross fingers everyone and your toes. It is still a pipe dream but very close to becoming a reality with your help we can do this together.

Kind Regards
Steve aka O_Smiladon

Thanks Ratcatcher,

I have just acquired some plans/drawings of the V_W Class Destroyer which are being sent to me from the US.

Once my guy has put a 3d model together I will show to you all. This is also going to part of my business plan to table.

Cheers guys
Steve

HI Guys,

Well not good news i am afraid. What seemed to be a winner for someone coming on in and funding the project has fallen over. But my dream still lives on to make a WW2 Battleship sim.

I have my Business plan and a pitch Deck doc all done and the guy who said he was keen to help out and giving me all the hope came to nothings. Spent hours and hours on my business plane and pitch deck which bummed me out for all the time spent there. But I am a glass 1/2 full type of guy and my next option is to put it up on some angle investing websites to see it any takers there. Failing that I guess kick starter of a crowd funding page.

If any of you guys want to help me out you are most welcome to come on board for a piece of the pie. Its not all about the money for me but to build something great that people will love. So i am willing to give up some of the business pie to the right people.

Dame the torpedoes and full speed ahead!!

Pity. But heads up and no worries. See you after the next 5 years then.

Until then...we continue to play what is already available:

[GWR] - Grey Wolves Reworked
Warship Mod V3.0
