just downloaded the World of Tanks Patch 9.0 test server. Now I am 54,000th in a queue of 68,000 people to join the EU2 server. believe it or not, EU1 has 90,000 people stuck in the queue!
I guess all the people who never play much are rushing in to try out a tier 10 they will never have and fire 100% gold ammo, meanwhile, the regulars like me who want to test out the changes on our existing supply of tanks get stuck in digital gridlock. oh well.

That's what you get for being a yuropean. Here on NA, our server population (on West at least) never gets about 30K. Most of the time when I'm on, it's around 9-12K. So MM takes about 30 seconds to a minute to decide how it's gonna fug me over in SerB's name instead of deciding instantly.

I suppose it's a good thing my internet connection at home is so poor that I can't actually play this week. I needed a break from the rage.

Holy smokes! I tried the Fv 215B 183mm and it put an Obj 140 on 1% health in one shot. That HESH is ridiculous. The Leopard 1 is my newest love afair though. It is just so awesome to look at, but also it makes you work for its rewards. It takes so much skill to drive but even in my clumbsy hands I can sense how epic it can be. At tbe moment I don't feel worthy to drive it, but If I start grinding now I can have it by summer's end.

I was thinking more immediate measures like micro ships or other fast builds, I know you haven't been following the group all that well but Wolf clearly wants to conquer you and I can't/won't defend you directly if he does decide to attack. You can't take weeks just to get a tank built, that's just asking him to conquer you. I hate to say it, but right now you're a big juicy defenseless target.

My Avro Vulcan copy (Pterodactyl) is about half done, and looks both epic and very swooshable. That beautiful wingshape has to be up there with the spitfire and mosquito in terms of aesthetics on British aircraft. either way, I have accepted that short of spending several hundred pounds (more than dollars remember) on parts, I will never be able to complete the Iron predator. So, do you think I should photograph all of its features and details at the current stage before I take it apart? I really need the pieces.

A5! A tad too advanced for the 60s considering the A3 had thermal imaging, laser rangeginder above gun, gryoscopic stabilisation, and compisite spaced armor around the hull and turret front, condensed on gun mantlet, rendering about half the tank (and most of the front) pretty imune to shaped charge weapons. I sense 1970s tech here. Maybe you should build a 0 series or A1 model, and then upgrade it later.

Just checked, A5 was a 1980s project to extend the shelf-life of the tank while they introduced the Leopard II. No way is this gonna be allowed yet, although I still want to see it :D

Nothing like the PAK DA will be allowed, I'm not sure what you are trying to say here. Anyway, the Silbervogel was a flawed design that would have destroyed itself, and beyond this it had a tiny payload and was unable to return to its point of origin. The self-destruction is fixable but the small payload and being forced to land in other country are kind of unavoidable. Don't get me wrong, the idea has potential, but it's no replacement for a conventional bomber, which as of the 1960's have much farther operational range than their WW2 counterparts.

My BTR 80 is done, but it will take like a whole day to render the main pic. I wont be able to do it, and MC edit at the same time.

Wat? This only took 37min https://flic.kr/p/naaABC Say no to transparent parts!

My BTR also is larger than minifig scale. The main pic that I'm doing is the largest, and has two BTRs in it, and I also am using custom decorations so it takes even more time to render. Also my minecraft map is more important to me, I've spent a year on it.

No, and its most likely no others on Mocpages could be as active anyways aside from DA. Unless you make a Starwars / Bionicle group.
I honestly can only see members leaving now. The whole of mocpages seems pretty quite military wise, and these games are getting old for me to.

I'll post the turret but I'm working on a slight "replica" of Alex Sonny's tracks but even still I need his permission which is yet. I still wanna post here and I am working on my own version of my new fighter jet slightly based on the MiG.

I plan to have a new cruise missile along with my new boat I'm working on. It will rival Sylvan's of course plus my I am building my own aircraft carrier which is long delayed and I have not heard from Cliffe since a month after I had him built it.

My helicopter will sort of a Huey clone but with altered features. My gunship will kinda mirror a Mil Mi 24A with some German designs.

aww yes.

My helicopter should be finished soon but I ain't posting anything until they are rendered. I have my own jet slightly based on a MiG 29 (not to be released until the 70's).

I have a replica chassis of the Leopard 1 almost ready (credit will still go to Alex Sonny since it's just a copy but the body will be heavily upgraded to almost mirror a Leopard II)

My submarines I have covered but my aircraft carrier I may have to build myself because I have not heard from Cliffe.

K my leopard is finished but I feel that I should still ask Sonny since it's practically his. I'm quite fond of him but thankfully this build experience on ldd has increased my skill. (Real life is too easy for me though but ldd is a pain to link tracks). I'll send you the files to render it though as soon as I can finish my jet fighters and a large transport jet (might do a midi-scale)

Then update my trucks and logistics. Then build an sdk armored car that acts as an MRAP. Second is my IFV and APC.

WG has no intention of combining different forces. War Thunder has become a highly impressive WW2 battlefield simulator. The graphics are stunning, the gameplay is realistic and the maps are huge. WG have only really pulled off WOT successfully, but they won't combine the other games because they are standalone, semi arcade military games, to be played for pure fun. WOT isn't as realistic, and you prefer war thunder. I might when I play it. I still love WOT though. The unpheasible tank on tank fights with all the hundreds of different types makes it more of a traditional shooter game, but it still feels tactical and rewarding for good play. On WT ground forces, if you try to attack dynamically, hiding tank destroyers own you like in real life. Not as fun.

They also built a sort of railgun like doomsday weapon. the V3 vengeance weapons were artillery barrels hundreds of metres long on inclines facing the channel, with many small charges along their length. As the round was fired, these went off behind it in ever quickening succession, accelerating the round up to hypersonic speed. this allowed them to shell London from france. The bases were destroyed by bombers before they became operational, and in testing the barrels wore out after a few shots, or just exploded. too advanced a concept for the time.

Since so many people here play WOT, I wanted to ask why is the 105mm gun on the M4 Sherman so powerful. Since I started using it I've been 1 hit killing most tier 5 tanks. Earlier I was cornered by a T29 "tier 7 heavy" with 50% health and I still managed to kill it. I didn't have the time to shoot hatches or ports I just shot. Is it supposed to be so OP?
I was playing on the xbox but that cant be it because aside from less maps, and tanks its exactly the same. At least they are updating it, they added 7 new maps, weather, better graphics, and a lot more tanks since beta.
Still want to get the PC version but I've always found the keyboard, and mouse uncomfortable due to how much space it takes up, and how I like to lean way back.

I don't want to grind forever like with the panther, took ages to get that last gun.

Sorry to ask so much its just that my xbox friends would never be able to help me, one guy thinks the M3 Lee is a great tank "He's still on it".

Answering your question I went down till the T29 and Pershing. The T29 is obviously an epic tank, however, the Pershing (not enough pen) was not that great neither the T20 (slow RoF) before it.
The T32 also lacks a good gun, it uses the same as the T29 which is not enough in my opinion.

Since so many people here play WOT, I wanted to ask why is the 105mm gun on the M4 Sherman so powerful. Since I started using it I've been 1 hit killing most tier 5 tanks. Earlier I was cornered by a T29 "tier 7 heavy" with 50% health and I still managed to kill it. I didn't have the time to shoot hatches or ports I just shot. Is it supposed to be so OP?
I was playing on the xbox but that cant be it because aside from less maps, and tanks its exactly the same. At least they are updating it, they added 7 new maps, weather, better graphics, and a lot more tanks since beta.
Still want to get the PC version but I've always found the keyboard, and mouse uncomfortable due to how much space it takes up, and how I like to lean way back.

The 105 is arguably overpowered, yes. It does a massive amount of damage, but doesn't have all that great armor piercing capability. Anyway, XBOX WOT is a whole lot of fun, but I will admit that currently the PC has more content.

As for me, I'm mainly a TD guy, but I've dabbled in mediums and light tanks too. I have yet to play a single round as arty. XD

Also do you guys think I should go for the heavy, or medium tank line for the US.

I am at tier 8 on the US heavy line. the M^, T29 and T32 are brilliant machines and a good way to learn heavy tactics. The T32 sidescrapes very well also. I began getting bored of heavies so I went down some light and medium lines. I now prefer speed, so the Leopard 1 is my goal now, and I love my Luchs scout. Do what you enjoy, but low tier heavies aren't really heavy tanks. Matilda is more of a heavy than the DW2 or B1 of the same tier

I have picked up the bricks again, and now finally have a chassis that I am proud of. In the next week or two at most I will finally post something. The Cerberus tank is basically a Chieftain but with a better engine and new name. 120mm rifled gun firing APFSDS, HEAT and HESH, and a butt-ton of armor. I think it will be the most powerful MBT in the group, and if a little slow, my leopard 1 copy will come soon after to fill the speed gap

Yeah, Chieftains had a 10-20% reliability rate on the engine and the T64 was more mobile anyway. Still, in a 1 v 1 the british MBT has the armor and firepower advantage. Each vehicle has strengths and weaknesses but I would feel safer driving a Chieftain into battle. Sylvan, I accept T64 had the most new technologies, but the Chieftain's L11A5 gun was the first true modern tank gun. It took ten years of development for the complete system, with all types of ammunition tested and improved. No, it doesn' fire rocket propelled rounds but it was accurate up to three miles and could send an APDS round through a yard of solid steel.
(BTW I know the T64 introduced a smoothbore gun so could use HEAT more effectively. Britain has a thing for keeping older tech beyond its sell-by date)

Correct me if I am wrong but these missiles are direct fire (not top attack). So the warhead still has to knock out the target. A shaped charge, or HEAT warhead right? Well, the early chieftains relied on thickness and very heavy sloping to defeat HEAT rounds. The extreme angles meant that the copper jets didn't have enough purchase to punch through. It also had small stand off armour pieces. Finally, it is almost certain that chieftain used a form of composite sandwich in the armed like T64. The armour is officially classified. Only physical thickness is recorded, not theoretical thickness or strength. Later models used a prototype of Chobbham armour and the Challenger 1 was basically a chieftain with a new turret and full strength Chobbham armour plate. I would say that on early chieftains, a shaped charge missile would have a 50/50 chance of destroying the vehicle, depending on the points of impact. With later Chieftains like the mk11, I would think that this would limit destruction to side impact only.

You must not have been thinking clearly when you posted this. From what we can see it doesn't say anywhere on the Iron Predator how fast it goes, and the armament on the Iron Predator is much larger than what's on your tank 300+ mm. His tank is also twice as large, with a very big crew bay, and presumably more armor.

Mine is smaller, thus more mobile and can be deployed in greater numbers due to lower cost.

A 203mm gun should be enough to take down anything (and since we use guns that rely on electricity and fire APFSDS, a 30mm gun would be just as powerful as a 203mm or bigger)

the best way to take mine out would be a large missile to the turret roof. The armor was 1.5 m thick on the front and if you read my posts, it is hollow, with a titanium honeycomb filled with a semi-newtonian gel. High velocity impact forces are disipated across the entire armor plate structure rendering railguns useless.

It might have had trouble against my hover tanks. Each shot from a coilgun is roughly equivalent to a cruise missile (assuming equivlent yields to real world prototype railguns) and considering coilguns can fire much quicker than modern tank gun, they could have used their speed to try to flank to get a shot to the side. Assuming one round per second... well, that's a lot of energy slamming into the tank. :D

Everyone seems to by thinking so linearly.
Its a hover tank so its not bogged down by ground resistance. Its basically an aircraft so maximum speeds of flat ground for the predator, and your tank could most likely reach past Mach 1. They both are using space age engines, and are fusion, or running under another unlimited power. Since traveling at Mach 1 close to the ground could cause problems one could also assume that they travel slower than that and the top safe speed could be achieved by either although I think they might chose different paths, and with such raw power I don't think acceleration is much of an issue either.
And how do you intend to get on his side to attack from there, he could possibly turn in place just as fast.

I sort oc agree with Sylvan, but I am sure he knows that circling tanks requires you to be fairly close. I wouldn't use the predators on the very frontlines. They would flagship rapid deployment battlegroups with concentric rings of support vehicles, while providing heavy firepower. To use them on their own upfront would be a waste, like with the air dreadnoughts.

The engines must by powerful to lift a 1 meter thick titanium armored giant off of the ground, and have it continue to travel around effectively. The only real advantage would in fact be the cost, as you could out number and destroy a predator. I would personally put my money on the predator in a 1, 1 fight. I don't think it could be creeped up on in a hover tank either.

An APFSDS missile? Do I need to say more? Armor piercing fin stabilised disgarding sabot. A small tungsten dart in a sabot fired at high velocity. A missile won't guarentee the same velocity, and would make the round too wide to be an effective penertrator. Also, Leopard II is 1980s.

Yes, you have increased the effective range using a basic scramjet. The scramjet was first propsed in WW1 for longer ranged artillery shells. He referred to a missile, basically a rocket propelled sabot round. Not as sensible. This idea is nice though, adding extra range to the round. Would it be possible to modify it for a 120mm Rifled gun under licensce?

Rifled? Not sure how it would work with that, but you can use the technology.

Oh and the Chernyy Medved not only has an increased the range but also penetration. Another ammo I want to use is a 3 sabot round in one thus increasing the chance of a hit. Not sure if it will be succesful tho.

Also, later scramjet rounds will have another feature, adjustable burn out tome for the engine. You can set it for long range or if target is close you can increase the projectile's speed for more penetration. (Chernyy Medved's penetration at 100mm is estimated to be around 1000mm RHA)

An APFSDS missile? Do I need to say more? Armor piercing fin stabilised disgarding sabot. A small tungsten dart in a sabot fired at high velocity. A missile won't guarentee the same velocity, and would make the round too wide to be an effective penertrator. Also, Leopard II is 1980s.


The Leopard II entered service in 79 so yeah I'm using it XD
first delivery late october 1979. We need an admin decision on you posting these the moment the 70s start.

If it entered service in 1978 then you cant use it in the 70s. That's a rule that's already in place that Awe helped make, and everyone agreed on.

Tech based off of a decade but cutting out 4 years to make it more balanced and provide a clearer picture of tech at a glance. The leopard 2 was around for under a year in that decade as opposed to 10 years in the 80s. Its basically a 1980s era tank. I really couldn't care though, don't know if we are still doing it that way, don't pay very much attention to this group anymore, nobody really does anything.

Well, you see, you currently happen to be holding part of the US under your control, and we find this unacceptable. Even the holding of Canada is something we consider to be a threat to our security.
However, to put it simply, we aren't even slightly worried about what new designs you might have. We have both towed and self-propelled arty, tank destroyers to deal with super heavies, our own ship launched missiles, and a full modern Air Force. The plan was originally to deal with Korea first, but since they have gone to radio silence that would be unsportsmanlike. The leaves the German Empire to deal with.

Submarine building is interesting. I am using a lot of techniques I learnt from the Hades class on this sub, so mostly snot techniques and studless smooth lines. Because it is IRL it is built in black abd details sill show. On that note, other than Matthew Sylvan's D&C II sub I think this is the only "large" scale sub built for these groups, as in not a 4 stud wide cylinder with fins. That is because British subs aren't perfectly cylindrical, then have more irregular elipse shapes. I have just enough curved parts to pull this off on one vessel at a time. Looking good so far, but I need to sleep.

Anyone heard of a ramjet wing? I doubt it. Information on it is scarce but I think it was originally a British concept. I may make an aircraft incorporating it to rival McCall's fleet of Blackbirds. Basically, take the lowest drag laminar flow wing possible, and split it down the middle. Sandwich a huge flat ramjet engine between the layers and you have a wing with the same drag but a hugely powerful engine blended in. The entire leading and trailing edges are intakes and exhausts. Little sweep back is required but it helps for high speed. Add a slender fuselage and you have a Design that hits Mach 3-4 easily. Combat use is limited, especially without nukes, but as a spy plane it would be unmatched.

"-- The sizes of ships and weapons need to be the same size or smaller than a real world counterpart, that is per class. Oversized concepts such as 1,000 meter battleships will not be tolerated. "

Wolf, no offense but it seems you are falling back to your slightly crazy design logic from the previous game. That rule was literally written with you in mind so that things like this or multi-hundred ton tanks wouldn't exist. :(

The German H-ships were bad ideas even when they were proposed, it's not necessarily a workable concept from what I understand, and as of the 1970's the idea is obsolete. Like, really, REALLY obsolete. The age of large ship guns being relevant ended by the early 1940s.

I'm not sure if we will allow them, but if we do, expect a 4 week production length per ship, them to provide nothing useful that can't be done by smaller ships, and your concept can be easily sunk by submarines. No amount of armor protects from torpedoes.

If we do this until the 80's then we can have a real showdown. Abrams vs Leopard, B-2 vs my custom stealth bomber, etc. I even have a fighter to counter the F-22.

F-22 (and any other stealth fighter) isn't until the 90's. ;)

Understood. My plan has taken much more one than I initially thought, I had to do actual research on important areas of Canada and the geography of the region. XD

Nope, German flying wings are not equivalent to the B-2, which was intense to be stealthy while ermam flying wings were stealthy by coincidence. Beyond this, what made the B-2 work, (fly by wire and the computer generated shape) aren't able to be done all that much earlier than in the real life timeline. My flying wing isn't a true stealth bomber and has stability issues because of this.

YB-49 was just practically a testbed. Not meant for true combat unlike the B-36.

Well, that is optimistic. It seems the step to break away from the fourth generation is exceptional expensive and risky. The Advanced tactical fighter programme started in the early 80s and the first production F22 rolled out in 2005 after the longest and most expensive development program in history. I think as a Lockheed fanboy I have every right to despise the US government for its cancellation, especially as the F35A is less capable, and currently more expensive that late production F22s! All they had to downs freeze production until the cash was available, then initiate a full upgrade package to F22B standard, with electronics more easily integrated into the USAF system, and better upgrade potential. Why make a whole new aircraft to incorporate the electronics when you already have the best airframe in the world? It begs belief sometimes, and if money is a problem, why does the US navy need 10 times more super carriers than any other nation, and then billions are invested in an unnecessary new fleet of carriers? I think the US military budget needs t get its priorities straight.

*Takes huge breath*

Because for one: our administration suks, two: the pres has practically destroyed the military, replaced almost the entire structure and is now in total control of everything possible. Even jobs here is just nothing but a tumbleweed rolling by. That's what's happening in the US. On top of that, our police is getting highly militarized and the constitution is becoming something of a lost value. Also Uncle Berry is letting illegal's flood through the boarder. But people here just seem to love it.

That isn't true, the YB-49 almost became an operational bomber, the government ordered a large number of B-49s only to cancel the shipment later. Anyway, my version of the aircraft is from a decade later, so it has a few advantages over the original, mainly the improved engines compared the underpowered originals.

Yes, it was optimistic alright, maybe it's more accurate to say that something like the YF-22 is for the 90's. F-35 is actually a strike fighter while the F-22 is only air superiority, so while F-22 is good for air to air the F-35 is better at air to ground. Yes, I'll agree that development of the F-35 has been embarrassing. Our super carriers are for being the world police. XD They are being slowly replaced due to their age.

The earliest Nimitz carriers are from the 1970s, the idea is that older ones get slowly replaced. The Nimitz class carriers won't be fully retired until 2058 anyway. And no, I don't think that the Gerald R. Ford is overly expensive, it is easily the most advanced carrier ever built and in fact has a lot of features that cut operational costs. So yeah, it might be expensive upfront but in the long run the price won't be as costly as you think.

Tried to take out an ELC on the test server but couldn't get a game. I adore my Panzer II Luchs for scouting at tier 4. I have almost got 6th sense on it from starting on just 50% crew, to show how much I play it. I consider it the best bullet dodger in game. The ELC is hard to hit because it is so low to the ground, but the Luchs has an incredibly low terrain resistance so it's acceleration and turning are lightning fast. You can zigzag randomly while keeping your top speed so you can drive far more aggressively. It now only gets tier 7 games which is fine as I have killed a tier 10 in it. It mounts the same 30mm Mk103 cannon from the German night fighters, with 95mm penetration at close range and a ten round clip. Find an isolated or distracted enemy heavy or TD and empty 300 damage into their engine. If that doesn't finish them the fire will, like that tier ten I mentioned. I platooned with a KV4 and got tier ten. I yolo charged a T110e4 and got around its gun, emptied my clip into its engine and it burned to death.

What do you guys know about the De Havilland Mosquito? I always had a great respect for it but never gave it the attention of the more famous single engined aircraft like the spitfire or mustang, but recently have been building a 1:48 scale Tamiya Mosquito F/B Mk VI (tamiya make an incredibly good model kit) and have been doing a lot of research into the "mossie". Since doing this I have began to fall in love with this sleek wooden aircraft. It's service record is second to none, and it was almost certainly the most versatile aircraft of the Second World War, undertaking almost every major role with excellent results. When introduced its speed was so great it outpaced Bf109s and Fw190s, and even late in the war engine upgrades kept this competitive. It was extremely aerodynamically clean, with radiators buried in the wing root, and a laminated plywood structure that was lightweight but incredibly durable. Many came home with missing wing tips, blown off rudders and elevators, and huge holes in the fuselage, like the famous "fortresses", but it had the lowest loss rate of any allied aircrfaft. In the bombing role it could act as a pathfinder for the otherwise blind RAF bomber command heavy bombers at night over Germany, or drop weapons as large as the 4000lb cookie bomb. In the strike bomber/intruder role, it made daylight attacks at low level over Berlin, demolishing individual buildings like a Gestapo headquarters in a row of houses while leaving the others un damaged. These daredevil intruder attacks over deep Germany without loss lead to it being regarded as invincible by the Germans. In 1943 Amiens prison Gaol was raided in deep snow and awful weather by 12 Mossies. They flew at as low as 15 feet from the deck, down a winds city street leading to the prison, before torpedoing their long fuse bombs through the snow drifts to demolish the walls and release hundreds of captured resistance fighters. No other allied aircraft had the speed, or bombing accuracy to make such a run. Only 2 aircraft were lost on the return trip. I just cannot believe how so few people are aware of just how incredible a service life this little British thoroughbred had.

So my pc contracted a virus and had to erase everything AGAIN. No files lost this time but I'm getting annoyed by this.

I'm guessing you might have a problem with what sites you have visited/downloaded from. (Just a guess, don't kill me if I'm wrong). Did the online data service help with not losing your LXF files?

What do you guys know about the De Havilland Mosquito? I always had a great respect for it but never gave it the attention of the more famous single engined aircraft like the spitfire or mustang, but recently have been building a 1:48 scale Tamiya Mosquito F/B Mk VI (tamiya make an incredibly good model kit) and have been doing a lot of research into the "mossie". Since doing this I have began to fall in love with this sleek wooden aircraft. It's service record is second to none, and it was almost certainly the most versatile aircraft of the Second World War, undertaking almost every major role with excellent results. When introduced its speed was so great it outpaced Bf109s and Fw190s, and even late in the war engine upgrades kept this competitive. It was extremely aerodynamically clean, with radiators buried in the wing root, and a laminated plywood structure that was lightweight but incredibly durable. Many came home with missing wing tips, blown off rudders and elevators, and huge holes in the fuselage, like the famous "fortresses", but it had the lowest loss rate of any allied aircrfaft. In the bombing role it could act as a pathfinder for the otherwise blind RAF bomber command heavy bombers at night over Germany, or drop weapons as large as the 4000lb cookie bomb. In the strike bomber/intruder role, it made daylight attacks at low level over Berlin, demolishing individual buildings like a Gestapo headquarters in a row of houses while leaving the others un damaged. These daredevil intruder attacks over deep Germany without loss lead to it being regarded as invincible by the Germans. In 1943 Amiens prison Gaol was raided in deep snow and awful weather by 12 Mossies. They flew at as low as 15 feet from the deck, down a winds city street leading to the prison, before torpedoing their long fuse bombs through the snow drifts to demolish the walls and release hundreds of captured resistance fighters. No other allied aircraft had the speed, or bombing accuracy to make such a run. Only 2 aircraft were lost on the return trip. I just cannot believe how so few people are aware of just how incredible a service life this little British thoroughbred had.

I assume that this was a joke, but I'm not seeing a UFO or anything similar.

Pay more attention, that was in game footage, and he was spectating his tank. Notice the menu like textures visible through the ground.

After I post my new creations you probably wont be seeing anything from me. I haven't built anything in a long time, and gaming takes up most of my time. Also on the search for a job, and if I get one I will be even more tired all the time.
My LDD project is becoming to frustrating due to lag, and I don't know when I will ever render my BTR 80.
I would build more if I had new parts but it seems like I'm doing the same stuff over & over again, and I want to build something new now.

You have my respects as a builder man. It's sad that we all grow up but that's life I guess.

I plan to build several fictional WWII "weird weapons" build mostly fictional and some I might use for here. Advanced Nazi stealth bomber that would have been a good rival to the B-2 and a supergun I'm building based on Gerald Bull's design in use for the German military. My V-20 fulfills that purpose but I'm building a detailed version of the V-20 complex (Only part of it) and going to use several non-nuclear ICBM type missile based on the Amerika Rocket concept. I also am going to start building several stealth planes and so fourth. *sigh* PC's are becoming a real pain for me after several hard drives to go through.

If virus's are continuously coming back, or causing lots of problems its most likely either that they are hiding in the darkest depths of your computer, or you're doing something to get them. You could be getting them from when you download Fallout mods. Some mod sites use uploaders that flash malicious ads, or clever traps to get people to download things that are harmful to your PC. "not all sites though" If you have Norton I suggest buying new virus protection. Norton is so bad most people call it a virus, as it can be manipulated to do things that help a virus. I suggest getting Kaspersky "not the cheapest but works" CC cleaner, Spybot S&D, and Combo fix. I would reset your PC to factory settings if possible, and make sure to back up saves. Turning up your virus protection settings would also be good, after all its good to be paranoid when it comes down to your computer. Just some suggestions.

I just hope this will be the last time for a good while. This all started after a huge lighting strike last week caused a power surge killing my capacitor and causing malfunctions on my 500 GB hard drive and thus losing all that effort on New Vegas and even losing my sci fi novel that I had reached up to the 5th chapter...God almighty this always happens with my cherished drives especially one that had Jedi Academy and all my Empire At War custom maps and mods I was making...

I am sort of in the same position as far as building is concerned. I may continue at a slow pace but I am losing interest in making lego military for a set theme, or quota. I prefer building what I want to make on a given day and although these groups got me into building again a few years back, I think I want to take a break after my next few posts, and think over what I want to do.

I have been building quite a lot of things lately, both IRL and in LDD. These include numerous tanks, an IFV with a few variants and jet fighters. All of these are built in LDD. In real life I usually build smaller things like a little drone I built yesterday. My useful brick collection is limited so when I build it's usually just upgrading an existing creation.

Maybe we are a dying breed. I am not seeing many new TFOLs coming through, especially IRL builders. I think LDD may have actually killed off MOC pages, because the only equally impressive brick built creations cost thousands of pounds and are made by a select few AFOLs. Flickr has also taken over as a way of displaying creations because of the ease of uploading. Maybe if MOc pages revised its uploading format it would become more popular but it needs to contact a lot of pure Flickr builders.

The thing is that a lot of Flickr builders came from Mocpages. After this site became older, and older they left to go somewhere that's less clunky, and old. If the Mocpages staff pulled there heads out of the ground maybe a lot of them would come back, as Flickr may be a good uploader but its not a social site, and it's not a Lego site.
But the whole of Mocpages needs a redesign, the site looks ugly, and simple. It needs new updated features that were not around when the site was made but are a bigger thing today. They should do it before its to late, since the site most likely gets its income from its traffic I assume the site is getting significantly less money than it did 5 years ago. I may be wrong there but either way this is site that has been around for ages, and it shows. It looks like an old school internet browser from the mid 90s. Children are growing up used to seeing flashy complex webpages, with far more features, and customization.

Leopard 1 is definitely one of the only tier 10 vehicles I would truly want, although T-62a, and the T57 Heavy are also ones I wouldn't mind owning.

I currently have a Tiger 2, JPanther, KV1s, M4 Jumbo, and t21 going for the T57 heavy.

Since the Xbox version is basically the same as the PC with less tank lines, and maps, I don't see why I cant transfer my stuff over. I didn't know if I would like the game, and now that I have been grinding for so long I wish I had been playing on the PC. If it doesn't come out for the Xbone, and my saves don't transfer over I am not going to play it anymore.

If anything the Xbox version is harder because you have to use a controller, and the control scheme is clunky.

The German Federation would gladly produce these.

I'm back after a series of unfortunate events but I should peak out from under the rock.

A more detailed 137 is being made so I can't wait to show it off.

I'm revamping my 1950's pack in a new super pack I'm still developing which will include a Panther tank with an 88mm gun and a Porshe style Tiger I with a 100mm gun. The "Panther II" is officially non-canon. My new stealth bomber will be re-built and with added new detail. And...Canadian residences are rebelling in favor of NAU influence.

Umm as of now you can take half of it. I still get a piece of the pie though. I claim upper territories while you claim the more prominent areas.

"Canadians prefer American Imperialism over German Imperialism! Canadian President declares German ousting from capital. German Bundestag retains lesser parts of Canadian territories."

Although I will complete and post my current submarine and tank upgrade package, these will probably be the last things I post for this group. I haven't built anything just for the sake of it in a long time. My Grizzly LRV was barely tried in with the last group, mostly I made it because I wanted to, but I have a different theme in mind that I want to try out myself. Don't think anyone has tried this as a concept for a theme of builds so I will give it a go. I will stay in the group and help out as well though.

I'm planning to officially launch my new group Conflict: Critical Action and it will be space based with a galactic map and I will also set up a hub on Flickr. With this under long development anyone can now express their sci fi military techniques further. More expansive than D&C II and will support WMDs BUT not without dire consequences of course.

D&C III is kinda waning off for me and I'm not detecting any more activity. Well Broken Bricks just came back on but this group needs far more active members.

And if players can use WMDs there cannot be without the risk of losing any benefits of land (men, unit production boosts, and whatnot) and you have to have alot of territory to have a high rank of being a nuclear superpower and they will be yield limits. I might have an ICBM warhead have a 10/15 kiloton limit. And if not a galactic map then it will be a huge planetary map alot bigger than earth's.

10-15 kilotons is kinda pathetic you know, that's basically tactical nuke level firepower. What logical reason is there for losing benefits if you built a tactical nuke? Not to mention, if this is sci-fi, who would even bother with tiny nukes when stuff like asteroid bombardmentor parking in orbit and dropping stuff is a possibility? Also, a map larger than earth implies a planet with higher gravity, which would logically have an effect on how players would build. Having muliple planets wouod be interesting, although it wouod require a complete redo of the way the map system works. Not trying to slam your idea, but there is a lot of stuff that needs to be thought through.

By soft sci-fi, I mean I'm hoping for stuff like railguns, sci-fi lasers, robot army's, mechs, space ships, hover tanks/anti-gravity, aliens, shields, mechs, ect... Your idea is interesting, but the focus seemingly only on fighters seems limited.

The planet system will be using a galactic map of course.

As for nukes I meant 10 megatons not kilotons XD. Acually the yield limit for megatons would be 250 kilotons. Tactical nukes will be slightly cheaper.

Just on a sidenote, but if a new game starts wouldn't it be time we standarize the judging system? I mean, simplify it so other people who do not belong to our 'inner circle' have a fair chance to fight?

Like this:

this -> defeats -> that

Tank-> Artillery/other tanks
Artillery -> Infantry/IFV
IFV-> Infantry
Infantry-> infantry/tanks/ifv/artillery

Ofcourse a very simplified system will take some time to develop, and some new more specialized units can be added. But by this it is just much simpler and accesible for new people who're new to these kind of strategic games. Both parties will have a fair chance to win, and we won't get those endless discussions like "my tank is more awesome because of 120mm gun" or "my tanks use awesome ammunition"

Also with this almost anyone could be a battle moderator.

Just my two cents

Also things like weather conditions, terrain and such should be made public before the battle takes place so both parties have a fair chance.

Some sort of interactive map would be very well suited for this.

I also think production stats should become one/two persons responsibilities, since all these groups we've had had no oversight whatsover over these and the current system is very prone to made up numbers


But maybe, all this can be integrated into one system which can semi automaticly can decide which party wins. Just think about it, no more delays, no more random discussions and everyone agrees when somebody loses or wins and all is based on simple logic.

Uhgh, I don't want to build in sifi again.
Does anyone want to do something historic?
Not cold war but WW2, never throughout history has there been more unique designs out there than WW2.

With everyone still figuring out how stuff works, and the rate of technological growth that era has a ridiculous amount of designs to build, and a large amount of different varying cultural styles "Japan, Russia, and Germany for example styled there tanks very differently" And the things you can do with aircraft are even more crazy. I'm just tired of making modern looking garbage, and want to make unique, complex, artsy, and elegant, stuff with crazy designs. A lot of stuff we have today existed in WW2, Night vision, AA missiles "although very simple", RC vehicles, Jet tech, and rockets. A lot of weapons were in use that are no longer like flamethrowers, gas, crazy large weapons, gyro copters, and seaplanes.

Anyways it was a thought, I am still working on photos for my upcoming moc "maybe mocs".
I just figured since everyone plays WOT, or WT that people would find it an interesting era, and most people would enjoy it. A group in 1946 would be awesome.
I've been spending 90% of my free time on minecraft anyway. I've been working on a massive western map with custom terrain, and I intend it to be large and filled with stuff like forts, towns, and all of that. I know most of you might not have any interest in the game which would be a shame because its basically the Lego video game we deserve, but will just never get. I also have 1 LDD Lego project I'm working on but I want to keep it a secret. Its also massive, and I've been working on it very slowly.

Agreed, we did that before though with Conflict II a couple of years back.

Recently I tried to make several creations tied in with that world but it was cancelled.

But I did made a map: https://www.flickr.com/photos/29135598@N07/11047811254/in/photostream/

If there is enough animo for a WWII group, and everyone is statified with a map in this style I would like to make one for a new group.

I'm up for WW2 if that's what the majority wants to do, but I would like to point out that we've never done a soft sci-fi before. By soft, I mean something more like Star Wars or 40k rather than something like Crysis (which is still soft I'm certain ways).

Anyway, mixed feelings about a standardized system of judging, and I don't really like the idea of using a formula to determin who wins, as that removes strategy and the constant drive to build the best designs.

Ofcourse, but if we look back to all previous groups almost none had a good way to deal with wars within a short period of time. Sometimes a single battle took months to be completed. I do think many of our groups have died off because the pace has been very low. With a more standarized system this can be avoided and make it more fast paced.

However if everyone wants to do the same we did in the past groups it's fine by me

Nope I changed it but it needed to be moderated...
But yes I did point out wars took very long. I'm also a little skeptical with the concept of soft sci-fi. It just sounds a little wrong to me, like being 26 and living in your parents basement without a job wrong...

Which requires all the IRL builders to have a decent supply of brown, gold, silver, chrome, and mechanical parts, along with gears, chains, and tons of ice cream pieces for smoke. We would need lots of musket parts to modify into steam punk weapons, and I don't think it is feasible. I would like to try some steam punk at some point but not for a war group. WW2 would be fine by me. One thing about this group that killed it for me was the progression every few months. The fact that my stuff that takes me ages to build would become obsolete and I would have to make another version so frequently put me off bothering really.

No, a dark gray tank with a black boiler and steampipe is pretty much steampunk to me. Those colors you stated are the most used colors for steampunk, while the shape of the vehicle determines wether or not it is steampunk or not.

Remember those fire nation tanks from avatar, those are also just dark-grey without too much mechanical parts

I thought it would be awesome but I can barely build anything at this point. Soo much effort was wasted after my other hard drive died from a blackout in my neighborhood.

The only thing I'm doing now is trying to rebuild my destroyer, a new battleship (A slightly modernized Bismarck) a long awaited assault ship, and my stealth bomber that will rival the B-2. Other ships will be a revamped Perry cargo vessel, several logistics, and my long delayed Leopard 2 I was almost finished with. *sigh* I could barely get any WWII surplus on during the 50's. I wanted spare ME 262s, Heinkel HE 111's, a batch of Bf. 109's and bombers from the Amerika bomber project.

And the Panther II I have is an unofficial design. I wanted a more appropriate tank like a somewhat of a pre-Leopard prototype.

With you all the way on that :D Just need to start building new WWII units, make certain adjustments to my Tiger I, and if you have time maybe you can render some of them.

V-3 facilities will be one of the few weapons I will use but an ICBM based on several designs will suffice also.
