Thread: Dreadnought mod idea

  1. #1

    Default Dreadnought mod idea

    Hmm...I was thinking if a mod of Empires total war with Iron-clad warships in the ww1-ww2 era could be possible...

    As much as I love wooden warship fighting against each other, I like the idea of a dreadnought battleship fighting each other better.

    Like a Iwoa vs Yamato class battleship fight...

    At the moment we are planning a mod for ETW.
    Victorian: Total War.
    Being in the Victorian era, that will have iron-clad warships.

    Too bad the first ironclad was built in 1859, if they'd made it a bit sooner maybe we'd get them in Empires

    Give me a good old yamato in a fleet to fleet battle...the dissapointment in ww2 is mainly due to aircraft carriers dominating the pacific, hence a lack of battleship actions.

    I would love to fight a jutland style naval battle with ww2 ships.

    Battleships are really beautiful to look at esspecially the Iowa Class, but to bad the Iowa, Yamato and Bismark classes were built about 20 years to late.

    I think ETW is going to go only up until 1820's or so - so no Ironclads. For VTW I was thinking maybe the mod start around that same period.

    With the ability to make 50 or 60 factions, I think Canada would have a chance.

    Well, Long range nearly no sight fighting of Battleships is cool,
    but isnt the image of bursting Wood due to Rows of cannon shooting much better?

    Well we all have real lives as well, and alot of us have jobs, so we cant expect them to be here all day every day.

    Yes, I agree, the 17th and 18th century naval warfare was by far the coolest.

    Not as cool as seeing a battleship firing a 16- 18 inch cannon, and the ship sinking more easily.

    Capturing a ship is never as exciting as sinking it.

    Hmm, well I kind of have to disagree. Shooting your enemy down from afar is definitely exciting, but using chain shots to bring down your enemies masts, then closing in to board them, well that really gets you on the edge of your seat.
