The need for wargaming to give players an outlet to spend all the silver and expirence.... How about having customizable (spelt wrong) ports and commanders to the level of other online games.. maybe

1. the lay out of the port screen could be changed in color or scale or to be able to change the uniforms of commanders etc.

2. the port itself could be made like the clan top down view.

3. different upgradable building and port equipment like cranes and drydocks.

4. ammo dumps and maybe even barracks etc.

5. have the ability to put in roads and aircraft facilities,small parade grounds etc.

 

players could buy different buildings/motorboats/uniforms etc etc in the armory. so a british person might make their home port look like portsmouth. americans like norfolk or peral harbour, russian like vladivostock etc etc.

 

just a thought.

I'd pay money to replace that PoS London with a real naval base such a Plymouth or Portsmouth.

On second thoughts though, WG would find some way to F it up.:Smile_sad:

I wany REAL ports (not ot say that the ones that we have are badly done, but i'd prefer some reality), i know that some ports and the Taranto port coming up are inspired by (London port is London) real life places, but i want these:

- This is the real Taranto (look how big it is)

 - Actual Pearl Harbor  (Hawaii)

 - Genova

Ohhhh I dunno. A fully done Scapa with all the classics and legendary RN ships in dock would be immense. Having been there it looks vast but so empty. Would love an in game Scapa. 

 

Pompey would be sweet though, I’ll give you that. 

 

And then I’d also love Harland and Wolff dockyard Belfast with HMS Belfast and the CV’s built there in port. Though I imagine it would look oddly naked without Samson and Goliath...

Scapa would be a little boring. There was nothing there.. Scapa had no dockyard facilities it was not a harbor Scapa flow was an anchorage

scapa.thumb.jpg.19be96e3df782cd7ee59beeead78fa53.jpg

I have this book.. the cover pretty much shows you the port facilities completely.

 

Portsmouth and Davenport/Plymouth they would be great

 Not changing my selected port for newly relieced or an event one every time would be a great start.

But Scapa flow itself is beautiful, HMS Warspite sitting in Scapa with the Northern Lights in the back. Ahhhhh one can dream.

But paying for a port? That's a big fat NO from me

But then you would only be allowed to play at low tide 😜

 

(For those that don’t know the queen Elizabeth and the prince of Wales had to wait until the lowest tide to get under the forth bridges )

only back from belfast last week. the 2 giants do make it look iconic. then again the skeleton structure used 4 the titanic looked pretty cool too.. i think all these ideas have merit.. most online games have a very large custominisation section. i think wargaming are missing a trick here.

paying with ingame currency and free xp. maybe get different things to enhance your port in crates or competitions.

sounds brillant.. maybe get better submarine netting this time though..  think port stanley in the falklands would be another nice nod for royal navy. im irish so the home of the royal navy in ireland during ww1 cobh co cork is a beautiful harbour too. to be honest the list is endless

players could buy different buildings/motorboats/uniforms etc etc in the armory. so a british person might make their home port look like portsmouth. americans like norfolk or peral harbour, russian like vladivostock etc etc.

 

just a thought.

 

Have to say not a bad Idea at all.
