Re: Bismarck bow anchor chain link size

Hi Marc,

Never seen that plan but it sure seem to be very precise, what the measurement units on this since i unfortunately know very little German?

Regards Hans

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

Outstanding! Can't wait for more! :clap: Thank frontkampfer it is always comforting when someone appreciate our work since it is sometime very frustrating to get good result. A lot more is to come and i think many from the naval sim community will be very happy to see that not all developers are go...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

Nice! Thank Tommy, For sure the high resolution model look a lot better since all the rivets are really popping off but for a game model we can only rely on what we call normal map, a technology that simulate elevation bump on a surface. We will make some test in the game engine to see how costly i...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

German RP 38 propellant was double based, as Phil says, but whereas nitroglycerine and nitro-cellulose formed the double base, the Germans substituted DNG (diethylene glycol dinitrate) which lowered the burning temperature and reduced bore erosion. The trade off was this produced considerably more ...

Re: We are developers of a new naval sim and we need some help

Hans, What are the system requirements for your game? I'm in need of a new PC and meine Frau said I could get one because she's sick of me complaining about my old one. Want to make sure I can run your game. Merry Christmas to you & yours! Hi frontkampfer, The system specs will be cpu 3.4 Ghz, AMD ...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

. The major reason for the different weights was that the USN used a "single base" propellant (powder) whereas most other nations (including the Germans) used a double base propellant, which meant less weight/volume was required for equivalent power. I would ASSUME that single and double base prope...

Re: Bismarck bow anchor chain link size

Where did you get that from? It appears wrong to me. The 72 mm diameter came from here: http://www.kbismarck.com/oequipment.html And to make sure i was correct i just scan a picture for top view of the deck from the wreck and match it with my Bismarck deck and capstan. If there is any difference th...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

I already found 16 inch gun sound and yes the sound difference should be minimal since if i am correct the 16 inch gun had the same amount of powder bag as the 15 inch. Regards Hans Actually the USN 16"/50 used 660 lbs of powder and the German 15" used less than 500 lbs. As tommy mentioned though, ...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

In the case of the 38cm, sound should be a bit sharper tone as the gun was higher velocity; same with the 15cm naval gun versus the 15cm howitzer. Perhaps the 12,8cm Pak 44 might be closer in sound. Hi Tommy, Thank again for shedding some light on the sound of these guns, once i edit them i will up...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

There was a very popular series of music albums (you know, the old vinyl records lol) of music from the old television series Victory at Sea. The third album had (supposedly) genuine recordings of 16 inch gunfire, as well as anti-aircraft fire. I used to love that album. You can probably find it on...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

Hi gentleman's, So far the best solution i think is to emulate the 38 cm from a 16 inch US battleship and for the 15 cm trying to find an equivalent in caliber with some audio tweaking for echo and reverberation. Shooting big guns at sea have a very different sound then firing it on land. A 100% his...

Re: We are developers of a new naval sim and we need some help

Hans, Do you know/have the film "Klar Schiff zum Gefecht (Topis-Melofilm/OKW, 1937)? I received the book "Jutland World War I's Greatest Naval Battle by Epkenhans, Hillmann & Nagler for my birthday and they mention that film. It was a propaganda film and they used German ships for some of the scene...

Re: 38 cm and 15 cm sound

You could try contacting the World of Warships game people. They seem to have different sounds for the different naval guns and they might be willing to tell you how they decided what sounds to use. It appears to me that the higher velocity guns tend to have higher pitches. Hi Steve, Could be an id...
