This is totally cool! Set huge ships against each other and watch them blow their enemies to bits! I'm making a coop on one, anyone have any advice?

I tried something like this once and found that the two sides had to be evenly matched to make it interseting. I don't remember the exact ships I used, but I think I had the Marat and 2 destroyers on one side and 2 or 3 cruisers on the other. The Marat (or the ship with the biggest guns) ALWAYS won.

If you try it, I would use the same ships on each side and maybe vary the numbers just a little. For example, 2 Marats and a 3 cruisers against 3 Marats, a cruiser and a few smaller ships.

The other thing to check is to see if the range of the guns for each ship are modeled correctly. Can a destroyer shoot as far as a battleship? If not (hopefully the case), then you need to put the smaller ships close enough to the enemy to get some hits before they get taken out.

P.S. I found that torpedo boats last about 5 seconds against the capital ships and don't get a shot off.

I'd be interested in how this turns out.

It is allot of fun and you will have to tweak the sides a bit to m ake the battle last any length of time. A word of warning though. Because of the huge amount of shells that will be flyng back and forth between the ships, the only people who will be able to experience it with you will be those with very high end machines (like mine :P)

Can the destroyers and torpedo boats shoot torpedoes in FB?

If not they have no chance to fight a battleship or a heavy cruiser in this game.
