Wonderful !  As far as I am concerned, the game cannot have too many cargo ships.

I was just wondering. For the moment and in the coming days I can remember that the Dutch and Pirate ships are now small cargo ships... but knowing myself in the coming weeks afterwards I'll probably forget.

Is it possible to edit the ships list so that in FMB it will appear with the names 'small cargo ship'? I don't want to fool around on my own since I invariably end up messing things up ... but if there is a way to change the names it would be ever so helpful ...

OK.
I will make original slots for them in about 1 or 2 weeks.

Good news from  western ,but Agracier in the Readme Have a two name for his little cargo, if don't like you change and adding this in /i18n /technics.ru. and in FMB menu you see the name of the cargo.

I just finished an excellent book about Hilfzkreuzer/Raider Atlantis/Schiff 16/Raider C.

(http://www.admiralgrafspee.de/hilfskreuzer/pictures/hk_atlantis/hk_atlantis_04.jpg)

It's interesting you would bring this up , Col King. I think the Auxilliary Cruisers/Raiders could be tricky to portray sim-wise, as they adapted a different visual guise (paint jobs, flags, dummy funnels and deck hardware) every couple of months. I'd love to see someone give it a go , though.

Some of the many versions of Atlantis

It might be possible to code the appearance of guns with a range-to-enemy as the coding trigger , but she
would have to have a singular appearance.

Still they were a fascinating , effective part of the German War Effort.
Also they flew they very antiquated He114C floatplanes, which have yet to be modded as far as I know.

Hi vpmedia!

Your "motoalb.tga" is 512x512 resolution.
gio's original "motoalb.tga" is 1024x1024 resolution.
Is it OK?


yes, 4 Mb was a too large texture for a small lifeboat so downscaling it to 512*512 means 3Mb less size.

Hi.

Dows anyone know these small cargo ships "Andrea Ia" and "Valentina IIa" had which type engine ?
(Which fuel was used?)

When oil firing boiler and steam recipro engine, I can set smokes from thier stacks as the default smokes.

When coal firing boiler and steam recipro engine, I can set smokes from thier stacks as the new black ones I added in Ship Extentions 2.11.

Or...
When Hot bulb engine , I can set smokes  as the new diesel ones I added in Ship Extentions 2.11 and sound ,too.

The name of the ships are finctional not a real ships , but the small cargo ships have a coal boilers reconditionated in oil burners afters the IWW , but I think ,in war time, a returned at the coal ,when necessary, due to lack of supply of oil , many very old and small have only the stroke boilers whit alternative engine (some a locomotive).
For the two ships, in this case, I think better a coal engine with dark smoke.

MR_G New slots would be nice. However, I'm going to use them in my Gran Chaco campaign. They'll appear on the Paraguay river. They're the ideal size for the smaller ports. When that's over, I'll revert to my 'non-Chaco' DBW.
