The stock gun is not so bad in fact :

She sinks instantly within a few seconds after torpedo detonation under keel.

Perhaps because you hit the ammunition room ?

Hi mate

Is it possible to do a non deck camo (Hull sides only) version also. I don't think ITRW they would camo the deck but perhaps I'm wrong. Also a non camo would be nice

Best regards.

Yes, sure.

In fact, camo on the deck is historically correct. But they finally removed it, letting only the camo on the sides.

Hi,

I have added and checked all the guns to be convenient to the historical reality, but I didn't add all the guns which were added in 1944 (too much work for me !).

So, in 1944, there will be "only" these guns :



Moreover, there are no platforms for the octuple pompoms, and I'm sad about this.

Finally, I tried to modify the 3D model to correct the stairs. I managed to do this, but as I expected, the AO map is no more correct :



So, this solution can only work for the Nelson which doesn't have any AO map.

Now, the Nelson has to be copied on the Rodney and remapped to take into accounts all these new AA guns. Then, when I have this remapped Nelson, I will check the AA guns which were not exactly the same as the Rodney.

Here the D/L link to remap (work for SquareSteelBar ) : http://www.mediafire.com/file/ukxb9j..._nelson%29.zip

I'm now finishing the camo for the deck.

Cheers.

To be precise :



So, the camo on the deck was applied only during 6 months. I wonder if I shall continue with my work on this camo ...

I think it's more correct. What do you think ? Only half the stair can move.

Yes, you're right. The masts in particular need to be reworked :

All finished !

I'm waiting until Monday, in case someone wants to provide me a 3D model of a platform for the octuple pom-poms and quadruple Bofors guns of both battleships.
