Hello everyone, it's my first time here and my second region, but guys I really wanted to know if is possible to change my flag, personalizing it, like make a totally new flag??

Speaking of naval vessels, I'll be needing to replace my x14 aging Adventure/Àdnachd Class multi-role frigates: https://i.imgur.com/RW2wE5S.png
I currently have x6 Adjutant Class frigates https://i.imgur.com/maVZk5H.png - should I increase the number of Adjutants, or replace the Adventure/Àdnachd with something more hard-hitting?





Maritime Defence Force
"Limitis Custodes Aqua" / "The Water Frontier Guardians"

The Alteran Maritime Defence Force (M.D.F.) is Altera's maritime warfare force.
It was formed towards the beginning of the 18th Century by uniting all the combat
ships within the nation into a single, organised force. The Maritime Defence Force primarily
involves itself with protect national and international trade, and has limited force projection.


A.D.V. Inferatus, designed and built in Noronica, serves as the Alteran Maritime Defence Force's flagship - though is set to be replaced by a new generation of ships by 2020


Alteran Aerospace's P.125 Osprey makes up the backbone of the M.D.F.'s aviation strike force, utilising its S/VTOL capabilities to launch from a variety of ships


Caelius Dynamics' C-100-B ASW is the A.M.D.F.'s go-to aircraft for maritime patrol, using its large weapons bay and radar suite to seek and destroy submarines and surface vessels

The Alteran Maritime Defence Force (M.D.F.) is the Alteran Republics' principle naval warfare force. Although warships were used by the Alteran rulers from the early medieval period, the first major maritime engagements were fought in numerous overseas conflicts against the neighbouring nations tribes - primarily over the rights to the abundant fishing waters.

The modern Alteran Martime Defence Force traces its origins to the early 16th century; the oldest of Altera's armed services, it is known as the Senior Service, a name borrowed from their former colonial overlords, Noronica.

The Alteran Navy maintains a fleet of technologically sophisticated ships, including guided missile destroyers, frigates, mine-countermeasure vessels and patrol vessels. It is well known for their introduction and use of frigates equipped with SkyHook - an unique method of launching and capturing VTOL aircraft using a sophisticated automated crane. As of December 2018, there are over 50 commissioned ships in the Alteran Navy, plus ships of the Alteran Maritime Fleet Auxiliary (A.M.F.A.); there are also five Merchant Navy ships available to the A.M.F.A. under a private finance initiative. The A.M.F.A. replenishes warships at sea, and augments the Alteran Navy's amphibious warfare capabilities through its five Assurance-class landing ship vessels. It also works as a force multiplier for the navy, often doing patrols that frigates used to do.

Very edgy lol how be you friend

So helpful.

Getting blasted by hot stack gasses is not so helpful.

That's understandable, I'll probably cut it down a bit

I'll say this: if you're not a regional naval superpower, 2-3 wasps is pretty serious

What everyone forgets is most modern countries do not establish their military to it’s full potential. NATO can sit back and maintain small militaries since they all rely on the US to protect them. Look at the size of military forces prior to WW1.

You can have whatever flag you want you don’t even have to have an ic reason to even though I did when I changed from a medieval style banner

I've got a week long vacation coming up next week and maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan I've been waiting for this forever. I haven't really taken many days off this year and having an entire week in a row, paid, feels great

Littolyo is a large and geographically varied nation occupying the western and northwestern portion of the Northern Argean subcontinent.

The rugged, snowcapped Avalon and Lavvarine Mountains guard the country's northern coast and are sparsely populated. These ranges are cold, with heavy snowfall throughout the winter and dry summers. Along the eastern border with Segentova run the massive Segen Range, home to Sky's Floor Lake—the highest and second-largest lakes in the Western Isles. The equally massive Lake Akheya sits between the Segen and Lavvarine Mountains, and is the fourth-largest lake in the Western Isles.

The vast interior of the nation is dominated by various highlands and basins, with the largest and most famous being the central Littolyen Highland, considered by many to be the ancestral home of the Littolyen people. The highlands are a mixture of dense forests, winding rivers, and small agricultural settlements—with the outstanding exception of Arennica, Littolyo's capital and one of its largest cities. The highlands experience mild, pleasant summers and cold, intensely rainy winters, and are famous for their massive and rapidly changing cloud formations.

West of the Littolyen Highlands is the Holden Valley. Formerly fertile and heavily populated, climate change and historical overfarming have left the region increasingly arid and depleted of nutrients.

The Rushe Basin is Littolyo's southernmost region: a temperate, lush, and fertile valley that meets the warm Saffron Sea with a long, semi-tropical coastline. The Rushe Basin in general and the southern coast especially are the population and economic powerhouse of Littolyo.

To the south, the continent meets the sea with a long, semi-tropical coastline. This is the most densely populated region of Littolyo, home to Portland, the nation's largest city and economic and cultural powerhouse.

Littolyo's closest neighbors include Segentova, with which it shares a long mountain and lake border; Equilar, which Littolyo surrounds on two sides, and which forms something of a wedge between the culturally important Littolyen Highlands and the populous and wealthy Rushe Basin; Vancouvia, which lies several hundred miles off Littolyo's north coast; Almorea and Dragao do Mar, which lie west and southwest across the Almorean-Littolyen Sound; and Keomora, which lies due south, across the Saffron Sea.

Made a pretty sweet geographical map of Littolyo if anyone wants to acquaint themselves. Next up is a political map showing the states and major cities.

Send me a telegram naming your ambassador if you'd like to establish diplomatic relations!

Yes, both in-character and out-of-character you can technically do it at any time. As for actually doing it (if you haven't done so already) it's under settings -> national flag -> create your own flag! (this will open a window where you can select an image)

If you're looking for a way to make it, there's a good website for basic flag designs... i believe it's called flagmaker jr? please correct me if I'm wrong, frequenters of the RMB. Otherwise, GIMP, Photoshop or basic image editing software should do you well especially if you're looking for more complexity.

Christ my nation is poor. 7,465 GDPpc which is definitely better than the likes of Indonesia or Vietnam, but dang.
