Not exactly. What was meant by that was that the BU breaks all ties regarding millitary. You are still welcome to trade with each other but taking the meaning of the term literally, you will not be teaming up to be a military power in the forseeable future.

I was invited to Rutherford's new wargame, but honestly I'm not very impressed. The rules are highly dysotopian and allow almost no freedom when creating units. Examples of this include only allowing tracked vehicles with rotating turrets in the armor category and other rules like fighters must be single engined. And not only is the variety of units limited in both scope and creative liberty, but the presentations of said creations are forced to be done in a very specific way.

Add in the no LDD rule (a deal breaker for people on a budget like me), no brickarms, and the popularity contest nature of how things are judged (meaning the playing field is heavilly biased in favor of those who get more likes than others) and I'm simply not interested. I would love to play a game set in modern times/cold war, but this isn't what I was hoping for. :/

Anyone else having a similiar impression?

Yeah, first I thought "yes, that looks interesting" but as I read no digital MOCs amd only brand new, I said, no way I'm taking apart my Chynska, Super Hellcat or Scarlet.

The rules are very strict (although I like it, not the creations part though) and limit the possibilities.

I think this group would need a brand new Rule page too, not one from a previous group, from a different era.

I looked at it too and didnt even get past no LDD. That was the killer right there.
That and from what yall are saying, it would've sucked. Rule of thumb: When making another war game group, base it off of one that already exists. It helps. Even then it can be a challenge if you want it to be unique.

I don't think my last comment went for moderation but it isnt here so Ima say it again (if it did go to moderation, Im sorry Squid. Go ahead and delete it).

I looked at that game and the no LDD was the instant write-off. If you are going to make a war game, copy off one that already exists. It makes it easier logistically. Even still, making your own is hard if you want it to be unique and still playable.

For those of you that want spacecraft, i have put serious thought into it and deemed that the only way to effectively use spacecraft in a game without them becoming OP is to have the game involve no planets. The map would consist of a cluster of intergalactic quadrants. Think of them like the intergalactic borders in Star Trek. Each person would command their fleet of starships and battle over these quadrants. There would be no land vehicles, only spacecraft, and such a group would be able to run parallel to D&C. I've patented the design for this group, so If it gains enough interest, maybe at some point it can become a reality. I love the space theme.

Sounds like a decent enough idea, this is pretty much the only way to make spaceships work since it makes planet way warfare almost obsolete.

It could have planets. Just use them as a population role and you can add structures like shipyards and orbital defenses and command bases.

I have a better idea. Instead of lumping several steps is space travel, straight to halo like space navies with artificial gravity and armour, we add planets a new map, with each planet having an individual map like the current one. Maybe only add two. Then, we have to build a spacecraft to get to and from them, but not an armed one. Think the space train from avatar. It is a future development of modern space technology. An unarmed transport. Any space combat would be done by smaller fighters, not enormous ships, otherwise they could end ground conflicts immediately. This way, we could have space travel and combat living in harmony with our current combat system.

That poses some challenges. IT also begs a lot of questions. Here are some that came to mind:
1. If we have the tech to make large interplanetary transport cruisers, we'd have to legalize satellite warfare logically (and my prometheus is really overpowered)
2. WHat defines armed? is a transport with a few point defense guns and a small squadron of fighters on board too much? or would a gian fighter carrier or some escort frigates be allowed?
3. If it exists, a gov't will find a way to use it for the military. If space travel exists, human nature will be to add weapons. How would that play in?
4. Given everything else, what about blockading planets or parts of planets? As soon as even 1 weapon makes it into space, satellite, space station, cruiser, fighter force, etc., Someone is going to want to use it for a blockade tectic ('cause blockade tactics work quite well).

I could keep going on with differnt logistics challenges that I would love to help solve, I already have some ideas in mind, but I am going to end on this note:
It is an interesting proposition and I would certainly like to see it come to happen. I would also like to throw some of my skill into D&CII rather than keep all my efforts reserved for my game. The game needs some mixing up and I'd like to get my hand in on this. It sounds like a fun challenge.

Space travel and craft would still be useless with your idea Jack. What people want to make is Star Wars/Battlestar esque starships. My idea would have a large galaxy as a map, and people will annex quadrants. Your fleet will be built ship by ship, and you receive a certain amt. of population per craft. (Number changes based on ship size) these quadrants will contain planets but all fighting will be done in space to eliminate space to planetary combat issues. This game should curb people's hunger for space warfare while they continue to play this game. I'm starting a petition here, whoever wants this game made, reply to this comment. If I get enough feedback I'll try to have it up this weekend.

Tyro, I came up with a backstory for that group.

New Babylon became uninhabitable after the long decades of wars. Peace was finally made between all nations.
Technology greatly improved during these years, space travel became much easier and faster than before. Every faction left the planet hoping for finding a new planet. However, none were found. Instead, colonies were established. These were mostly giant domes housing only few people.
Later colonies were built in space around planets with lot of precious resources. In the end ground warfare became non-existent.
The once peaceful nations clashed again fighting for planets and resources.

Let it be known however that I would like the Calumette to serve as the standard for the types of Starcraft we see in the upcoming group. Mini scale ships are ok in some degree, but I would like to see everyone push for a higher level of size and detail. Professional looking mocs make for a professional looking group.

That isthe exact scale i had in mind. I'm basically putting all my stuff to scale with the USC Imperial Star Destroyer, which is a good point to go off of. The Star Destroyer is about 1600 meters long, and the Calumette is about 2100. How many meters long is your Reaper and is it to scale with the UCS Star Destroyer?

The Reaper should be about that size. It is built in a scale that 1 stud on it equals 8 stud in minifig scale and 1 stud is about 30-40 cm IRL.

Btw what is that Calumette, I can't find anything about it. Is it your spacecraft?

Also, I'm building a spaceship. It is named Galaxus, about as big as the Reaper and looks more "fat". It has a rhombus shape from the front. Oh and I have an older one done (built weeks before the Reaper) the Kwatar 2. It resembles WW2 battleships. Armed with 12 400mm coilguns it is truly menacing.

A whopping 8, i know i know, hold your applause please. It was on the homepage for about an hour and then it was taken down...

The fancy rendering means a lot, but at the Calliope's size it would take eternity.

By tonight, I will have made a video of my dreadnought. By tommorrow, it will no longer exist. I will give it the full honours, careful dismantling, as opposed to just ripping it apart. By taking It apart section by section, I can trace its four month construction backwards, to the first few pieces.

A moment of silence for the Dreadnought.

Just like the HMS Warspite, it went down fighting. When the Royal Navy were going to scrap the battleship, as it was being taken too the yard, an old battle injury, a damaged rudder, never fully fixed, caused it to run aground, prolonging its record breaking life for another year! Anyway, the black eagle is coming along nicely, the landing gear is done, with the doors as well, and is both strong and aesthetically pleasing. The wings look great. (They are SNOT) and I won't have any homework now my tests are done, so I can work during the school week! Problems I have encountered are a lack of hinge pieces, for all the weapons bays and landing gear, as well as the fact that Lego doesn't make any decent cockpits, and the most suitable one has only just been released and isn't available on pickabrick. Looks like I will be using the Jedi Starfighter cockpit again, how predictable.

Currently I'm now building a new giant battleship twice the size of my Neptune reaching approximately 15 kilometers. Bigger than ANY ship on here. Like most of my ships, it will be armed with giant coastal guns, CWIS, laser defenses, missiles etc. And it's set to replace the current Leviathan ship (will still see services). Also the Leviathan supersub will receive upgrades and improvements and will be succeeded by a newer design dubbed Leviathan II class. Zach I may need you this time to help with the development. Bigger ain't always better but I can't help building ships that double the size of others. Also if we can get this new project up and running you will receive equal production rights of the new ship. I'll leave a post on my primary ship building group in a bit after dinner. I have at least 3 super ship projects to finish right now.

Your ship sizes are getting ridiculous. I don't think a ship that size would be practical. It would be a giant, super slow target. Not to forget that it can be tracked by a satellite pretty easily, so the enemy would know its location everytime.

As Matthew said it collapses from its own weight if built. Also if it is allowed, it would take like two months to construct one or even more.

I have made the cockpit interior for the black eagle, and it made me wish U was a mini figure. It is so über detailed for minifig scale, I will probably take the whole section out to photograph it better. I have started putting in the weapons bays, and I am planning on lowering the wings a bit so that they sit two thirds up the fuselage, rather than three quarters up it. I want to make sure this isn't a rough diamond when it is done.

In other building news, a secret LDD project of mine is going smoothly. I was going to try building it IRL, but lacked the parts. It is kinda a super weapon, but one within the rules, not bending them, within them, and also it isn't the type that ends wars, it is just a really powerful weapon. I won't reveal anything further until I post it.

A superweapon that doesnt push the rules is not a superweapon. Either allow them or not. You dont get to say superweapons are legal if they comply with the rules unless your rules go into the megaton range. Anything else and you ruin the spirit of it and you may as well just say it isnt one because under D&C rules, there is no way to make a true superweapon without massive rule bending.

No, you you don't need weapons with bigaton level firepower to qulaify as a super weapon. Superweapon doesn't equal megatons, the definition of a supwer weapon is simply a weapon of extra-ordinary firepower or effectiveness. Multiple kiloton warheads (which are allowed BTW) most certainly qulaify since there are no nukes, and there are other weapon systems that could qualify without having to have nuke-level firepower.

You should learn to do this yourself, all it takes is a quick internet search.

Anyway, kilo means 1000 (I would hope you would know this now after the ship-length fiasco ;) ), so a kiloton is 1000 tons of TNT.

For calculating the results, just find a calculator on the internet and type to numbers in: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2+kiloton+nuke

or: http://www.stardestroyer.net/Empire/Science/Nuke.html

Keep in mind results will vary slightly depending on which one you use.

A superweapon is a very powerful weapon compared to others of its time or era. In theory, such a weapon could turn around the outcome of a war very quickly.

An example of such is a tech I use in one of my stories; a Forced Energy Plasma munition (just called FA warheads for short) which is very similar to a nuke but insanely complex and with zero fallout becuase it is non-nuclear. They usually operate in the 75-100 megaton range because it is a SUPERWEAPON. 2 kilonton warheads are standard tech in D&C and thus are void from the definition above.

2 kiloton weapons are not common tech, they are made by difficult to collect anti-matter and have sharp limits on their production. Given that they are more or less 100 times more powerful than the next most powerful weapons allowed, it's safe to stay that they qualify as super weapons.

I remember the warhead yield discussion but I don't remember an official announcement as to the new rules. I remember Tyro saying something to the effect of: "I guess the new limit will be . . .".

Any chance in the future that we can use nuclear technology? Nothing massive but like we could just use smaller yield weapons. Because due to the game's decrease of players I think it's time to spice up the rules a bit just to make it more active because so far only 5 or so players are active.

Nuclear weapons = fallout and currently, there are no war game groups that have large enough maps to support multimegaton nuclear blasts without making a large percentage of the map off limits to military forces.

Even Warzone 2147 will not permit any weapons that generate fallout so that means pretty much all nuclear weaponry is off limits. Sorry.

To end the conflict over my announcement, it is a weapon system of similar power to my air dreadnought, but not an air vehicle. It is not really a super weapon, just a very powerful weapon, and it has drawbacks, such as difficulty to deploy it, ect.
Heavy 400mm AA gun (based off Mjolnir) mounted on a huge truck (based off a truck from Halo) ? Am I right?

I have a 400mm railgun. It isnt truck mounted and it isnt AA and it certainly isnt dreadnought mounted but tte 400mm longbore railguns do exist, just not as boss as Sylvan makes it sound. I wish.

I was looking at starting over in C&C because this is kinda quiet and I think I could handle 2. I was actually wondering is that group still active?

Well, nevermind. All my stuff is built for D&C and is too technologically advanced for C&C and I am not about to rebuild my entire military from scratch.

I have several holes in my existing military and I dont need to try and split my building time. ITs easy for you, you've been here longer. I havent been in any war game long enough to have a full single army, led alone 3.
Hence why all terrestrial combat in Warzone 2147 will be at D&C level tech (im too lazy for second army; space army is enough)

You have kinda ruined any surprise, but yes. The Monolith class MMAC is an enormous eight wheeled chassis, similar in size and design to the Mammoth from Halo 4, but lengthened, with a mount for the true super weapon in question, the Mjolnir Mk II MAC. This railgun is the same calibre as the old one, but the similarities stop there. It is three times the length, with side by side rails, and incredible range and power. The Monolith is big enough to carry its own escort vehicles internally, and packs AA defences, but the supreme range of the gun is its best defence. The LDD build is on hold for a while as I am making the Eagle at the moment, but it is about half done. The chassis is complete, I just need to make the top and the railgun.

I'm planning to work on a supertank myself. It will be hover based since tracks cannot support the weapon systems it wields. One will be equipped with a large siege gun of classified systems.

Uh... why? Besides the fact that there is no need for a new group right now, it's not like we want the next war group to also be future, it's more fun to mix things up a bit. Personally, I would like to see a group set intitially with 1940's tech and slowly phase into Cold War tech. Anyway, it's just not time to start working on new games yet, and in my opinion that's something better left to the veterans like Mr. Squid.

The D&C III draft is just something personal not official. And if you like a game with World War and Cold War tech then you'd be looking for The Absolute War based on an actual dystopian post apocalypse series I'm working on that revolves on Earth where governments have collapsed and World War III was immediately ignited after World War II by nuclear fire. This is also the story where the Absolute Socialist Empire originates from. Inspired by INSOC (English Socialism) from George Orwell's 1984 novel. The Absolute War also takes inspiration from the novel as well with a blend of Mad Max and Spaghetti Westerns. I'm mostly working on a novel series of it but I also plan on having a group based on the story I'm writing.

Or you may be interested in it.

Alright I propose that we make slight changes to the rules based on economy, resources and defense, shipyard construction etc. This may not be an issue but I think this game needs to be a little less time consuming so I think we should make slight alterations of construction and building (I.e create mining operations to increase your resources and economy, and build factories and shipyards to boost your unit builds and having no more than 10 will reduce time and effort of building)

I play to much Empire At War so it should be an idea if anyone's interested.

I have a great texture pack called Coterie Craft, the new default. It is 16x16 and is a more stylised, but un themed version of the default with subtle colours. The problem is, all the up to date versions are made by fans as the creator never updates it, so some bits are buggy, like the compass has no animation on my current version.

If this is right I think I can master this. It shouldn't be that hard.

Another example:

So I can have 1 of each ship types under the production limit of 35. So I should have at least-

1 Absolute carrier

1 Ironclad battleship

1 Victoria II-class

1 Neptune-class super battleship

And then wait for the next batch to follow? That should be alright with me.

Also do you automatically get units when starting out or do you have to acquire them weekly? (Producing from the moment you post your mocs)

I don't know, what do you mean by popping in and out?
I downloaded Skype, but haven't figured it out yet.
It might be my netgear was disconnected briefly.
or that I keep checking Skype.

OK, once you download Skype make sure that you are logged in skype also with the (what i call buddy icon) click on you name then under the icon, the is a button called Change Pictures. That is where you add your pictures.

What's happening then is that I have windows 8, on windows 8 there isn't just a dashboard like every other version of windows, instead there is a dashboard, a start page, and an app page.
Skype runs on the app page so everytime I go to the dashboard it closes.
Its super frustrating, and the advert that windows 8 is easier than ever is a lie.

I'm still figuring out how to get the server onto the internet, I already downloaded a server and set it up, but minecraft needs you to portforward the server "also frustrating"
Its not that I cant do it, its just that its taking me super long to go through the steps because I'm lazy.

You are suffering through windows 8? You poor sap. Windows it is a downright piece of horse sh t. The fact that you are even running is excellent. For your patience, I applaud you.

ROFL No, that's just a silly Star Wars world devastator concept, you can't just suck up dirt and other random materials and magically get the material needed for building advanced machinery. It's literally impossible.

I have taken all the photos for the black eagle, but cannot access my computer right now, so it ought to be up later. I am going to edit at least 5 of the shots, for in flight poses and one missile shot. I have also made a section of air base to display it on, and a few small details.
It's best features are:
Working landing gear
Working rudders
Working 3 axis thrust vectoring
Opening cockpit
Detailed cockpit interior
Working canards
Opening weapons bays, with several types of ordinance
The two black eagle silhouettes airbrushed onto the tails

The only downsides:
It is a tail sitter, so needs propping up when on the landing gear
The cockpit canopy is a bit too small for the size of the aircraft
The nose is slightly messy as I didn't have the right parts

Anyway, I can't wait to up.oad it. My next projects are the Nester Rapid Deployment Helicopter, Grizzly LRV, cockroach ESHLRV (enhanced survivability hover light recon vehicle) and Tepest VTOL multi role fighter.

That actually sounds like a decent rival to the Cobra. I can confirm that as soon as I find out if it's UAV capable but I'd be interested in seeing that a CM has to say about a 5v5 match of bird vs snake.

3 axis thrust vectoring is pointless. why?
EXPLAINED:
your three axes are pitch, yaw, and roll. Pitch (vertical) has been around since Gen 6 and even latter Gen 5. In Gen 7 (and some late Gen 6), we introduced yaw (lateral) vectoring. Roll (rotary) vectoring remains useless. To control roll with thrust vectoring, one simply alternates the directions of the vertical vectoring on two engines. Twisting the exhasut nozzles do nothing.
This is why the NCA uses flaring as a third control type. Opening or closing the exhaust nozzles tunes the exhaust stream for either top speed or acceleration, whichever the situation demands.

You have misunderstood what I meant by the third axis. When posted, you will see. And also, even normal thrust vectoring novels can control acceleration by opening and closing. Your rounded ones however, do little to reduce the thermal trace of your aircraft, and any heat seeking missile will easily get a lock on them. And don't say flares, because even modern missiles are now being built to tell the difference.

The thermal masking is built on before the vectoring.
And the Cobra has flares but doesn't need them. It has a half dozen better ECM modules to avoid missiles.

It's so sad to see my EDI UCAV with only few likes. It's my best aircraft I have ever made, pretty much features everything like the Black Eagle. The super complex geometry body gives it a unique look, the cockpit was a real tough work to figure out. The whole thing is so unique, a real pioneer in aviation (the defensive laser was used first on this aircraft, some credit would be appreciated). Every aircraft here are look-a-likes following the same concept. I suggest come up with somethng new and make your plane unique to your nation. This is the future, come up with something new!

If I offended anyone, I'm sorry. I didn't intend to but looking at the UCAV everyday makes me a bit sad on the inside as I love that plane.

I can see where you are coming from, and yes, the laser was your idea that I I corporated, so credit where it is due. The thing that makes my jets unique is the "spirit" biological computer system. In terms of aircraft design, I cannot say, as all my planned jets will look different. As models, it is full working features, althought your UCAV shares that one.
I think the one thing all my jets will share is their cockpit interior. Now I have cracked it, I will make standardised ejector seats, control sticks, throttles, rudder pedals ect.
The only reason I can think of for why your UCAV isn't that popular is that it is un rendered LDD, which makes it look quite boring when in a small tab photo.

The black Eagle is on the homepage! It is also at the bottom of the popular this week chart. If we give it some more love, then it will slingshot onto the explore page. McCall, wolf, navy, Christian. I don't think you have rated it yet. I have posted it in a whole bunch of groups, including lots of likes, to try and get it up there. I think this is the only chance I am going to get to be on the explore page.

I am told we are going to vote as to what time period to use, and that will decide whether we can keep our stuff. If you have modern or Cold War stuff and we get that, then I am sure you can use it. McCall, you have at least two full armies of modern stuff, so you should be fine. I have only got two modern creations that are fictional, so I will have to hope that we vote for near future again.
You never know, for the sake of the game, we could downgrade stuff. My black eagle could be classed as 5th gen if I got rid of the active camo, AI, neural link and laser. (Too small for modern tech)

Then may I ask what would the sequel be?
We cant run D&C II forever, eventually as nations are ejected from the map people will just drop out from the group, its the best solution to have plans for a sequel, and even better a fixed date on when to be expecting D&C III, as I did. A lot of problems will be fixed in the next group, and members will vote between cold war, modern, and near future.
We don't want to run this group dry, eh?

If we pick near future it will actually be 2050- 2070, and although a lot of stuff will be used, there will be set limits on ship sizes. Other stat fixes will take place, and I have a prototype map in the works.
