Since we have ships, ocean and beaches why not have a dock so we can port ships to a dock where we want?? I have gone thru all the objects and I see nothing that can be use to even make a dock of correct porportion to the ships.
Just an idea - I would have a use for them!

There are 2 objects (in OBJECTS category) which are dock concrete objects. All you have to do is to rotate them to what even direction you want (NUMPAD keys) and then add same objects in a row one next to another to what even distance you want.

Well I don't see them! Any idea what number they are? I have a .pdf catalog with very small pictures of all the objects but none of the ones that looked like a dock were even close in size. Will try again but the ones that I found were huge in comparrison to the ships???

S!

Greetings Oleg and Crew and Other readers,

I have given some thought to a few things that might be good in the FMB if we could have them. These are not difficult things and should be easy enough to add with a minimal effort and bring more richness to the FMB and FB overall.

Firstly a few Queries about one or two existing Objects.

It appears that Object 126 and 127 are the same? Can somone clarify this? Maybe an error? Many of us use Object 128 for building wharfs and harbours. Could we possibly have a few more Slabs of concrete that are larger and longer so we dont have to add so may smaller slabs when building? Could we also have a Thinner Slab that will allow is to put objects on without having them dissapear into the concrete slab?

I imagine the slabs of concrete are easy to make, so this wouldnt be all that hard to add. And it would make building such facilities alot less tedious.

Object 8 for the life of me has puzzled me, is there some reason why this very nice castle floats in the air? Is there a way to make it sit on the ground? Placing it on a hill or mountian has no apparant affect it still floats in the air.

An Object like Object 16 would be nice, a Stone wall thats darker -more european looking- and without the Crenelations along the top.

I have three Idea's for simple Objects that would enhance the overall atmosphere and go well with current new objects planned.

they are:

1.) Steel X's used on beaches for fortifications. If made like the placable fuel drums we could have maybe three groups of X's that when used in conjunction could fortify beaches and other area's.

2.) Barbed Wire/Razor Wire Spools, to compliment the X's and other fortifications planned.

3.) Wharf Cranes and other Harbour Equipment. Would add a nice touch to harbour constructions

I am also wondering why the PBN and the Arado Seaplane are not available in the Stationary Aircraft Opption, this is a real pain in the butt. Why leave them out anyway? The MBR and JU52 seem to be the only stationary seaplanes/flyingboats we can place?

A seggestion also would be the addition of Depth Charges to the Ordinence. Sinking submerged U Boats might be a little more do-able with the right ordinance.

Anyway just some thoughts and Questions, -no whining- if i had 3D Max or somthing similair I would gladly do them myself being unemployed i have no such opption and are forced to ask beg and plead albiet politly

I'd mention Carriers again but i realise that a working carrier is much more than a mere object.

Thanks for reading.

Cheers

S!
