Okay, I have to say: that Azur Lane Dorm port is dope AF.

 

The selected ship standing on a pedestal like a model looks absolutely amazing. I wouldn't mind seeing that aesthetic design permanently in some form once the AL Dorm port expires again (I presume the port is not meant to stay permanently, but I haven't really found anything stating how long it will be present with a superficial search through the news on the webportal).

Something like a permanent Collectors' Port with the same ship as model on a pedestal or let's get cheeky and bottle them all up as bottle ships, now that sounds nice!

 

 

Because yeah, I really like the look of this. Well done WG!

Sarushima is also a permanent port.

I can't activate it anywhere, I can't find any button to get a blue container to start at the page they said it would be.

It would be very cool if it stays, so far it is my favourite port:cap_like:.

 

Hopefully it will stay.

The button participate "gives" you the port, for the containers, you need to complete combat missions.

It's not my favorite port... but I like it.

I hope it is permanent :) and maybe later some more rooms

ROFL. Might fix some of the slow UI.

 

I'm not into the Weeb thing but I do find this kinda funny, really.

Now add one of these (in whatever form) in the backgroud and I'll never stop laughing.

You can make it look like Jingles, Mr Conway or one of those hentai, whatever. :Smile_trollface:

I'd love to have a simple, less resource-hungry port similar to the new Azur Lane one (I don't like this comic-style stuff).

Maybe something like this:

Funny then that the "minimalist" port so far was Ocean.

Except Ocean has water. Performance doesn't seem to like water.

Very ironic considering the theme this game has chosen. :Smile_trollface:

Thats due to the fact that water simulations need 100k+ polys for it too look decent or at least a considerable number of polys, i mean you could animate the water but thats incredibly tedious and takes way too long.

 

Im sure there are more effcient ways of doing it but your pc needs to process the water, textures any shaders, normal maps, diffuse maps etc plus the number of polys the water is and the ship itself.

 

but then even if you give WG the more effcient way they will probs just ignore it.

Bit of a stupid question, but does anyone know how long we have to complete the AL collection? @Crysantos @MrConway ?

So... i also play another game other than WoWs, it is  IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, and in that game, there is a mod about the water (see link). I think that the water would look like that, we would have huge performance improovements, in that game, with this mod, the water doesn't look bad, it looks okay and actually it doesn't hit FPS that much (a almost don't see any change in FPS).

Collections are permanent ie as long as you start them, you have indefinite time unless you stop collecting

Ah, that’s different.  If for instance in quit the game during say the hunt the Bismarck event with it open, I could restart the game today and keep collecting.  What you can’t do is stop the collection after the expiry date, you can’t restart it.

I'd still like official word on how long we have sorry. The fact it doesn't say how long we have, or even if it is, as you say, unlimited, has me concerned.

 

I want that Azuma commander, but what I don't want is to have to pay for her.

It’s always been the official line I completed some collections a few months after they were out iirc

This Azure thingy doesn't appeal to me at all, but I like the idea of a ship model standing on some pedestal as a port screen.

It is a nice simple port although I'm not overly into Azur Lane I do love how the ships are presented so I do hope it's a port that stays
