This is relevant for both Admirals and Shipwrights.

On that note, I have an Admiral, a Brit marketing specialist and a Shipwright who refuses to disclose their company data. 11 of you voted for a collaborative game. I expect more submissions, ladies and gentlemen.

I went through 22 pages in a single sitting over the other weekend, and finished the remaining pages this evening.

I voted for cooperative but I'm also bad at this game and worse at designing ships - especially the second game since we haven't seen how it goes yet.

So, an excellent candidate for an Admiral, then?

Yes.

Ahem, *as I have specified* it will not be necessary to buy the game to play as a Shipwright - you can submit estimates of what you're aiming for and I will be happy to translate your concept into a game design for the contract award process (ofc if you choose to buy the game, you can save me the hassle, but I refuse to put participation in this collaborative playthrough behind an effective paywall).

However, this:

Sign me up as shipwright...

is insufficient.

What is necessary, if you want to register as a Shipwright is this:

I expect each shipbuilder and admiral to not shirk away from roleplaying (I expect you to *sell* me your ships, not just post a file and call it a day) and I would like each shipbuilder to post a short blurb on this thread with the name of their firm, the name and description of their representative/president/player character and a short blurb based on the history of their firm and what they specialise in (no more than 500 words total).*  Likewise, I'd like the Admirals (who will be assisting me in judging and accepting the designs) to submit character names and a short blurb with their strategic thesis.**

What's your shipbuilding firm? What do they specialise in? Where are they based? How are you planning to 'sell' your designs to the Admiralty?

Spoiler:
How involved are you with the Mafia?

This is a roleplaying collaborative game as much as it is a number-crunching tactical simulator. Let me know what character you want to play, and play them.

This is a fantastic point.

For your consideration then (unlike The_E I lack any sort of knowledge of Italian admiralty, and will be making one up):

Rear Admiral Giuseppe Alfonsi (Savoy-Genoa) is relatively young for his station and achieved his post (what is supposed to be a safe position in the Home Squadron) not because of any particular talent or skill, but because of his relation by marriage to one of the cadet branches of the royal family.  A man of relatively short stature, "Little Alfonse" at least has the usually beneficial quality of being incredibly enthusiastic in all of his endeavors.  This resulted in a massive and sustained infatuation with whatever happens to be the hot new tactic or technology of the day, most notably and for the longest duration (so far) with the Jeune École.  He opposes overseas colonies, seeing them as a liability and threat to the ability of the fleet to defend itself and its holdings.

As such, he is in favor of (at the beginning, at least):
- Technological improvements
- ASW
- Torpedoes and fast torpedo boats

And not in favor of:
- Increasing dock space
- Overseas colonies/stations

I think it goes without saying that he's going to be fanatically pro-aircraft when that becomes available.

Game releases tomorrow.

I was going to get the demo and train, but I didn't because of RL time cobstraints. Will get the game on day 1 and dick around a bit, to familiarise myself with the new features and UI (so your horrible designs will be sunk because they were horrible, not because I forgot to check checkbox #23 in menu #196.)

I currently have 2 Admirals and a Limey shipbuilder.

Put your submissions where your votes were, people.

I tried the demo briefly and it was pretty buggy. Half the fleet I started with were tagged as old but were so incredibly overweight and illegal in other ways, that I could not rebuild them. A lot of the rest of the new carrier stuff seemed a bit shaky too. Grade A programming. I'm sure their DRM will be impossible to crack :V

Put your submissions where your votes were, people.
Oh ye of little faith.
Something something, I told you so.

Might be worth pestering people on the discord as that seems where everybody is these days :)
