Why? Nothing's changed. The topography is coming slowly, it's not easy to do a whole new earth.

As for you not getting the invite, who was it most important to for you to join that group? You. Who should have cared more about it? You. Who should have asked questions? You. It's not my responsibility to follow up with it. I saw you were active on Flickr in that time frame and naturally assumed you just didn't want to join it.

As for the airships, I've just always pointed to the fact that they are naturally very vulnerable. You've insisted that somehow yours are different. I don't agree, and nothing in history agrees with you. Before you say anything more, it was Dr. No that brought up the subject of airships as you will see, and he completely agreed with the limitations that we all placed on them such as caps on numbers and aircraft that can be carried internally. He uses them too, you know.

That's all old news, and no sense rehashing the same tired arguments.

I dont check up on it that often, and dont even know how it works besides adding photos, I was waiting for someone to post a link, I asked for one.

I also did finnaly agree that the carriers would be very vulnerable, I though we did end it there but now Im seeing the new caps, and thats why I brought it up. Theres nothing in history that says that airships cant carry more than 10 aircraft besides the fact that we have never tried, which isnt a reason as to why we cant try, also Im the only person that has carrier airships, but I dont even use them so I really dont care much on those, I will change my stats.

I mainly want your opinion on the tunnels, as I did mention them near the begining, and its been about six months, and more on my old homepage although Ive changed it, and wanted to know if in a few more months I can say that I have them. As I said theres been much bigger projects in history that took place in short amounts of time.

As for the vast underground networks you have, let me do some comparisons for you.
-The Maginot Line took 9 years to finish (at $4.57 billion).
-Siegfried Line took 6 years.
-The French Alpine Line took 9 years.
-The Italian Alpine Line took 12 years.
-The Chunnel took 6 years (at a cost of $9.32 billion, with much more modern equipment).

These are much less sizable and complex than yours are. With the exception of the Chunnel, these were just a few feet underground if at all.

Well, those were at least larger spread. Vanguard's tunnels are just factories, and under 2 kilometers underground. There were some underground factories in WW2, so a better comparision would be to those. I don't know much about them though. What if his tunnel system was partially natural?

Well, I'm glad that they're so shallow... Have you seen the Grand Canyon? That's only a mile down at it's lowest. I doubt anything man made could go down that far.

Yes, there were underground factories, probably only about 10-15 feet underground, not "Just shy of 2 km" under.

I've been to Carlsbad Caverns, the largest in the world. They wouldn't support more than a small arms factory. Transport in and out would be impossible, since it's vertical. It just isn't done, what else can I say? What you're proposing would be impossible, yet you both don't see it.

I was reffering more about the project riese, in which they built a massive unfinished tunnel complex in two years, when germany was being bombed, it had underground factories deeper, with most having 15 foot concrete shells, and complexes like these were built all around germany at the time.
I also said on my MOC that the tunnels are only a few thousand feet below the surface, not 2km.

Oops! I was tired when I wrote that. But you actually said "nearly thousands of feet", so it's less than 2000 ft. underground because nearly means "slightly less than", and the minimum of "thousands" is 2000.

Keyword there is two years. Also, that's not a very good comparison because the deepest I could see that that went was 53 meters underground. It also cost over 49 million Marks to build. The whole "We drained three nations to build this" doesn't work in this group.

I can't imagine the positively impossible figures that it would take to make the massive underground structures you're talking about. Can you even fathom what "A few thousand feet" underground would look like? The cost and time it would take to extract literally several cubic *miles* of earth boggles my mind.

If you read carefully, it's less than 2000 ft underground. And I think the idea was just to make tunnels, so it's more like a mine. In 1957, there was a mine made 2 kilometers underground (Tautona), over three times as deep as Vanguards. Or what about the quincy mine, made in 1846, that reached 9260 ft. down. Quite clearly, it's possible to get pretty far down, and Vanfuards factory is poistively shallow compared to the deep ones.

What part of "Underground bunkers, 15 foot thick concrete, with factories" from what he said do you not understand? If it was simply a mine, there wouldn't be a problem. I know mines, I live in Colorado, we have mines everywhere. If you're not careful in some places, you'd trip over them. Mines are narrow shafts that branch off into small tunnels that are occupied by men and machines. Not very big machines, either. They have to be taken apart to go down, and taken apart to come back up. What's the point of building a factory "Somewhat less than 2,000' underground" if you have to disassemble the product before it can be removed? Nowhere in history do we see anything so deep that supposedly does so much. Anything that parallels it was "Somewhat less than 180' underground." What can you guys not get about that? Is it the way I say it? Or is it just "Too cool, dude!!" to admit reality?

Its not like they are made in the space age, they are simply a tunnel dug by men, in the taller parts they used a ramp so men could dig above the others, when a certaint amount of tunnel was made, they would make a tight frame and pour concrete into it, and a section of tunnel was then finished. Thats it, thats all thats needed, what more could there be?
Also the weapons were then taken to the surface by elevators, or ramps. I know you will probably say that elivators couldnt be used, but they had been invented years earlier. Of cource the entrances could be bombed, and we would clear them and continue production thats how it works. If you have netflix watch the documentery on project reise, as its really bigger than they say online, and theres much more complexes that are covered.

I don't see a problem with the tunnels. As long as they're not 6000 feet deep with 30 foot thick walls, let Vanguard have them. I really don’t see too much of a military bonus to have factories and such underground—you’d spend more time getting materials and equipment in and out than building anything.

Why do you need night vision for your troops? Are there no lights in your tunnels?!

Sorry, but according to the rules your aircraft cannot exceed the speed of the Arado Blitz of 461 mph.

Don't worry, that's still faster than the average prop fighter, and will likely still perform just as well against flak.

Because your aircraft is a light jet bomber, you must use the Arado Blitz's stats for it. If you built a jet fighter, then by all means use the Me 262. However, it has to be properly shaped & such...

If anyone is interested, Ive been spending my time working on a version of Conflict for the future, and wanted to know what you think of it, I will make this when the group breaks down, or when everyone get tired of playing, so maybe sometime next year.

The group will take place in 1970, in a world that has suffered from a meteor impact around 100 years ago, the resulting effect was a surge of global warming that melted most of the worlds icecaps, and raised world temperatures. The world is much warmer, and jungles are growing northwards, consuming the planet in green, deserts are also abundent.

So happy right now; just bought some new Lord of the Rings Lego sets! I got Shelob's Attack and Gandalf Arives, both are amazing and better yet the first one came with two extra One Rings and one extra sting sword. There's going to be a Lego store opening this weekend about 20 from my house, so hopefully I'll then buy Helms Deep and the Uruk-Hai army sets--as well as hopefully get a free mini Lego store set along with those.

I have only seen a creeper once and it gave my castle a nice moat, My farm was out front and it filled the moat with water. I usualy put lots of torches so I dont see them, as soon as I get cobbelstone, I make a furnace and turn wood into charcoal. I try and get as much wood as I can. I spent my first night in a hole, then built a rock house the next day, then expanded that the next day, got more rock from a quarry I made under my house that I later turned into a basement, then made my one floor into a six floor castle, It looks pretty good, But I made a super cool one on creative, to bad you cant turn them into survival.

BTW skelotons are what always kill me, I usually manage to panic and walk into a wall, and die Lol.

Ummm... you do realise that I have a large portion of my military there (I had sent perhaps 1/4 of my total ground forces there), as well as heavy beach defenses including 18 inch coastal defense guns? See: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/318597

Of course, one could question how you had time from April 11-15-ish when you acquired the colony to May 21 when I sent the orders in to have shipped all that over there and built it all in just over a month. Those things take time to install, and without a merchant fleet to your name, one wonders how many cargo plane trips it would have taken with only about 15,000 lbs per plane? Going back to my old argument with Vanguard, you simply wouldn't have had the time to do it all over literally hundreds of miles of coastline. I would have likely found incomplete heavy gun emplacements, partially fabricated concrete bunkers, in scattered areas. Where did you get the tens of thousands of men to build it all so quickly? Not to mention you don't know what all I brought to the fight that might have been able to surmount those defenses.

On the other hand, it seems likely, as I argued in my orders, that you'd have simply a small garrison there of no more than a battalion, a squadron or two of aircraft, and a token fleet. Why? Because frankly, a colony thousands of miles from home is very, very difficult to maintain strategic control over. Even the nuclear power Great Britain found out about that in the '80s.

But, I digress. Without clear and present evidence to the contrary, the CM's word is final. Frankly, Val was far more generous in his estimations of how many men you had there than I would have been, or was, without a reference point, such as a stats post or something like that.

Also, please keep the Combat Reports thread clear of extraneous posts...

Well, for starters, it seems obvious that real life time is different relative to the game unless you want to argue that we can construct battleships in 3 weeks. It takes years to build them in real life, therefore the only logical conclusion is that time is much slower in-game. If production is sped up for militaries, there is no reason that it shouldn't apply to defenses. Aren't you seeing the double standard here? Noy to mention it's been two real world months since that order was given, not one.

And since when do we need to build merchant ships? Where is that written in the rules? We don't need to build civilian infastructure or logistics vehicles, so why are ships an exception? And if it is such a problem, why do you bring it up now, when you didn't even give the slightest protest when I posted that?

It was quite clear what was brought to the fight, 500 men and 20 tanks. Don't try to say there was something else. It's obvious that Val made his descision without having a understanding of my forces that I had deployed, and I request that he reconsider the combat result.

Aren't you seeing the double standard here? Noy to mention it's been two real world months since that order was given, not one.

It doesn't change the fact that you're building the equivalent of dozens of battle ships worth of turrets, guns to match (18-in), and pouring enough tonnage of concrete with steel reinforcements equal to a flotilla of destroyers. Especially if you're covering the entire coastline. That would run about 55-80x dual 18-in turrets, or about 18-27 battleships' worth of guns & turrets using the Bismark scale. I don't even want to think about how many millions of tons of concrete and steel beams you have in there, but it must be about 10-15 destroyers' worth. Just saying off the top of my head. Does that still look like a double-standard to you? As I stipulated, the orders were sent in 37 days after you took control. It is therefore concluded that the orders, effective at that time, were executed at that time and are considered retroactive. In other words, they took place 37 days after you took full possession, not today, almost twice that time.

Quoting Matthew McCall
And since when do we need to build merchant ships? Where is that written in the rules?

I built my own merchant fleet, even though it's all of 17 ships; as well as logistics vehicles. That's a good point, and one that needs to be addressed. We need to come up with some sort of standard for this...

Oh, interesting, you somehow got hold of my combat orders? Think about it: 40-50 lonely transports making for an enemy shore wouldn't have a snowflake's chance in Vulcan's Forge. I'm not that dense. I won't say anything, because whatever intel advantages I have I'll keep, but it was either due to expediency or convenience that the rest was omitted by the combat moderator.

Otherwise, unless you can produce some sort of proof of such redeployment, solid, real proof; then there's nothing that you can honestly expect to be done about it.

I never once mentioned full coastal coverage, that would just be silly. Realistically, there would only be maybe about 15-20 18 inch turrets, and I said there are only a few hundred bunkers total, all of which would be placed around inportant to defend areas, not random shore. I totally believe landing could be allmost initially unopposed by the defenses as long as they landed somewhere not that close to a critical coastal defense. However, you didn't address the issue over differing time, so yes, there is still a double standard.

Also, it doesn't make any sense that you can attack with stuff and your opponent has no idea what they are fighting. I caan understand before an attack, but why wouldn't we have intel of what was attacking after it begins? And since the combat report said only 500 troops and 20 tanks landed, it seems quite clear what attacked, as this was not from our point of view but from a narrator.

The ONLY comment I can find that you ever posted about your colony since the day you took over was in INN4: "Hundreds of bunkers...8 massive 18 inch anti-ship cannons." No more about boosting the defenses or anything since that post. You included a laundry-list of vehicles you were shipping over as well, but Val knows how long it took me to ship less than half that number of armor over to Morgotia; which is closer to me than your colony is to you. Also, you didn't mention how many men you were sending over. Just saying, it's still up to Val.

With your original 8 turrets and hundreds of bunkers you said, and the fact that you never updated the progress of said defenses, then I'd be inclined to think that you might have been able to complete the turrets and maybe 100 bunkers. I don't know, you didn't give us updates to double-check.

I'm only saying that there were additional contributing factors that made for the success of the landings which were not made clear by the CM. You act like it's my fault here.

Final decision on this-

Yay! Poor tanks, acceptable losses though.

Quoting Matthew Sylvan

Me and Matt P against Vanguard. Also, me against Matt M's colony, though I expect that will become a larger contest soon.

I posted a comment in the INN convo, noting that the BAC has been totaly annialated for a while, so the Balcavans didnt lose any casualties, and that there is no reason to attack the consortium.

You're quitting? Well, there goes 2 months of careful planning...

As I understood, it was the intention of the previous owner to use the position on the tip of the antarctic to extort and attempt to regulate international shipping and trade. Not only that, but I figured if Matt supplied you in the last fight, he might do it again or allow you to station troops or missiles there that might threaten my homeland. Frankly, I won't deny that I find control of both sides of the straits to be of extreme strategic value. So, based on that, I decided to act. It's kinda too late to go back now.

Go to the nations or new members thread and claim some territory from the map in the map thread.

Unfortunately, it looks like you've joined as this group is winding down, but who knows?

Well, I suppose I should make this official. Due to being very busy with school, having 2 other war groups, other things to do in life besides Legos, and personal problems with certain aspects of the administration, I will no longer be active in this group until further notice.

Who wants to play in a group that is strict.
This group was never supposed to be anything like Conquest & Consequence, it was supposed to be a fairly fun place to spend time after school, or on weekends. Then came Ultra the all knowing, who threw all that away because it had to be how he wanted it.

It all comes down in the end to him always thinking he is right, not demonstrating empathy, and being obsessively critical.
Now the group is cold, say didnt see that coming did you?

Feel better now that you got that off your chest? Good.

You said you had no problems with the administration when you left (http://mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=19346&topicid=80574#comment-1019772, "It has nothing to do with leadership"). It was your ragequit that ended this group, and you know it. Ask Matt P.

I was never alone in the decisions I made, so I protest this singular criticism. In fact a board was set up especially to standardize everything with all of the admins and moderators approving the final set of rules; everyone's voice was heard equally. You may protest that you weren't there, but I did send you the link in your Flickr Mail. It's not my fault it got lost.

I will say nothing further.

Quoting Ultramarine .

"ragequit"? By ragequit you must mean announced I was leaving, and let you win the war? Wow thats very ragefull. I didnt say anything then because I was to tired of constant negativity.
Its wasnt your fault that it got lost I agree. I didnt quit because I found it funny, I had a reason.
You made most of the decisions, the "board" was only that one time, it was mostly the admins "you and mattP" mostly just you though..

Is MattP mad at me? for leaving the group?
I left because the group was no longer fun, it wasnt a game anymore, other people left when I did, I wonder why?

No, its been dead for a while.

so basically I might as well just post models.
Do you think it would be worth starting again or do you think it would play out like the last two times? it seems such a good idea but I guess you can't control other people.
