I may be wrong, but it looks like Prinz Eitel Friedrich is missing a deck. Her cast-mate guns look like they're way too close to the water. It would appear that she would flood in almost as soon as she picked up speed. The picture below looks more reasonable.

The fictional rebuild probably made her longer, appearing to be lower in the water.

There is a reason casemate guns were removed from later BB designs.

They were too wet and partially not even usable in rough seas.

That and they needed the weight for DP guns. This picture makes me think of Mary Rose, Vasa, and HMS Captain.

She doesn't just appear lower in the water. She is lower in the water. Main reason why most of her armour is below the waterline.

The term you're looking fore is casemate, not cast-mate.

 

Apart from that I have to agree with the consensus.

Ship is ok, but please change the gunsound of this ship. I feel like i fire with a pistol...:(

 

 

Edit: And yes the secondaries are to close to the water.

I had used casemate, but it came up as a misspell, so I changed it. I've read Little White Mouse's review and am undecided as to whether I need it or not.

Do you need the steel? If not, my recommendation is the grind. The ship looks nice, but gameplay-wise is nothing amazing.

Your spellchecker is, as they tend to be, off it's rocker. There is no such thing as a cast-mate, at least not on a warship.

Now that you mention the armor below the waterline, LWM mentioned this in her review of PEF.

In her review it was also stated that if PEF were to be raised a bit, her citadel would also get raised, which would likely make her weaker.

 

Perhaps WG ended up putting PEF a bit lower in the water as it was easier to make her less vulnerable this way than to change the model?

Warships of the age we're talking about here wouldn't exactly have satellite television and Internet access, so the crew would have to organize their own entertainment.

 

And if the crew decided to put up something like a small theatre act or revue, the participants would technically be cast-mates :cap_old:

WG seems to balance ships by raising or lowering them in the water, thus exposing or concealing their modelled citadels.

 

There are lots of ships in the game that don't appear to be sitting at their correct real-world combat draught.
