Re: VAS 2

'm not aware of any major World War 2 naval game, so you had a niche for VaS, and I'm unequally unaware of any major modern skirmish-level wargame. How can you not be aware of any other 'major' WWII naval miniature games? 1.) Grand Fleets 3rd Edition 2.) Naval Thunder: Clash of Dreadnoughts 3.) Act...

Re: Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

Somehow I missed this message. You are totally correct. The Garibaldi s are a confusing class and I was looking at the wrong one. And it looks like I've been delinquent as well! You're right... the Garibaldi s were probably the most varied 'class' of ships to ever sail the seas. Confusion abounds a...

Re: Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

I've downloaded them and am generally impressed. However, the Cristobal Colon did not mount any 9.45" guns; it had two 8" guns in the X position and no guns in the A position at all. Per page 382 of Conway's "All the World's Fighting Ships": "She was delivered to the Spaniards at Genoa 16.5.1897 bu...

Re: Victory at Sea: Ironclad Announcement

We have not set a price point yet. As for ships, damn near all of them :) One final question: Will it be as easy to add ships as in prior versions? There are so many different wars that loomed and threatened during this time period, but never happened. From the magnificent broadside ironclads with ...

Re: Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

http://www.navweaps.com/Weapons/WNSpain_945-42_m1896.htm This was the gun that was to replace the 10" gun forward. I've found conflicting reports as to whether she had mixed or unform main guns (the GG class had several variants) but most seem to agree that all she had at Santiago de Cuba was her se...

Just in time for my birthday!
It'll be fun to see just how easy the C.S.S. Virginia can plough through them damnyankees. :mrgreen:

What's the price-point gonna look like, and how many ships (give or take) are included?

Re: Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

Not an errata per se, just a note: the Cristobal Colon 's 10" gun was never mounted. Well, I've been digging a bit more and have found out that the Cristobal Colon and her canceled sister Pedro de Aragon were supposed to have had 2x1x9.45"/L42 guns* (after the faulty 10"/L40 EOCs were removed). So ...

Re: Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

I'll get the US torpedo craft into the mix on Sunday and post them Monday, barring interruptions, then. If not Monday, then I'll have the Wednesday. The only big issues that I'm running into is 1.) so many small anti-TB guns and 2.) torpedoes are almost, but not quite, entirely useless. Since torped...

Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

So, I got bored and decided that I wanted to recreate the Battle of Santiago de Cuba. Being as none of the ships necessary were in Age of Dreadnoughts, I've spent the last few days putting the various ships necessary into the Age of Dreadnoughts system. So far, I've got everything converted for the ...

OK, the supplement on American subs has been in Matt's hands for about a week now, and I've got most of the bugs that rcbecker1 was kind enough to find worked out as well. I'm just waiting for some kind of word from on high to let me know what I can expect. As a taste of things to come, here is a li...

Re: Stance on Fan-Made Supplements

My only question with either situation is what happens if it is 'submitted' but not 'approved and published?' If it is not, I would still like to present them for use by people with VaS 1.0 who might not choose to 'upgrade.' Is the content still technically 'mine' to distribute as long as I do not t...
