hey captains,

 

 

I wondered if it was possible to insert a big visual explosion effect when citadel is hit.

imagene to hit a citadel in 22km range and see a big explosion on board after the impact. "bullseye!!!"

Big explosions are for magazine detonations, other hits to citadel just represent important machinery and other parts getting damaged.

 

Besides, the amount of fire, smoke and splashes is already a bit much in my opinion.

I find the sound effect already annoying enough. Don't need a special visual thing with that.

One-shoting cruiser across the map from very far back possition ain't enough is it?

The cruiser should go back to port with style right?

Sometimes you cant see a DD with half your team shooting all around him + maybe a dead burning wreck in between.

I'm curious ... I thought WG had disabled the ability to change letter colouring, yet the only thing I can actually read on my dark theme is the initial "hey captains," and then it's a poorly contrasted dark mess below.

 

I was under the impression that only happens when you copy&paste from another format (say Facebook or Reddit), so did OP really just copy&paste that from another website just to post here too, or what happened here?

 

Dark themed forum should have equal reading ease too, we don't need none of that white privilege stuff on the internet!

No problems on my screen .. maybe you're screen needs updating or replacing?

Nope. It's just that the first comment is black letters on dark blue background.

 

Everything else is perfectly readable because it's white letters, as is the standard format on the dark theme.

I agree that for gameplay it can be problematic but it certainly aids immersion and realism. I like it

you do realize that the entire point of a Citadel is that it is inside the ship?

This.

Scroll down here: wargaming_forum.thumb.PNG.60b966bbb1079eefd25c45a7d99ed7c2.PNG

 

Under "Theme", select "WoWS - Dark" or "WoWS - Space". Tell me if you still don't have a problem reading it.

I understand now and yes I too cannot read below Hey Captains.

This is the kind of visual that I'd love to see when an unfortunate soul gets a detonation. A big ****ing mushroom cloud that stays around for a while, possibly obstructing visibility for a short while like smoke does. That is what you get when the magazines blow up. Detonations don't happen too often in games, so I don't think it would be ridiculous or overkill. 

Possibly the receiving end of a devastating strike could go more in style, as well? They're much more common though, so I wouldn't over-do it.

Regular citadel hits, however,  I think are just fine as they are right now.

I suppose that you could have a brief yellow flash or something to indicate a citadel, or maybe a single big puff of black or white smoke from the funnels, which would be a realistic indication of an engine room hit.

As far as "realism" goes, the indication for a penetrating hit is- you see nothing.

Gunnery observation was like: 8 shots fired, 7 splashes counted = 1 hit.

Or just remove detonations completely

You havent played World in Conflict I guess - that had exactly what you are looking for.
