To be fair, I just prefer to work on worldbuilding offsite, since I find the NS dispatch interface kinda clunky.

I do it on docs then copy paste it over

How do I give my nation a custom classification? I think "Union of the Aziran Islands" has a nice ring to it

You have to reach a certain number of people, I think 300 mil.

So I made a joke post in a thread about fighter jets, then everyone in the thread came down to absolutely dump on me for... making... a joke?
It was so weird.

I also got called a "No-post Nancy," which is a great insult I've never heard before

"Wow, you spend less time on NSG, the worst forum on Earth, than me? You do other stuff more often? Hah, loser!"

Avoid NSG like the plague.

Go to your settings. The very first box should say classification

I thought the discord link was in the Factbook entry for TWI, but now I can't find it. Can someone link it for me?

No kidding. I learned that lesson right quick.

Why are they so anti-social and weird?

Below is a link to the mostly unofficial TWI Discord server. It is meant primarily for non-NS conversations and chill.

Do note that not all TWI members use the Discord. Hence, try to keep RP planning, nation-building efforts, and OOC collaboration in the NS site (RMB and forums), so all TWI member would be able to read and participate. If you do discuss NS related matters - remember to post any important details on the NS site a well.

"Leave-lord" sounds way better. It sounds like a fake insult they'd come up with for a 90s teen movie. I love it, why wasn't that in the thread? >:(

Brulafi wrote:"Leave-lord"

We all know who this is, Norstham...

NS issues in a nutshell: a foreign nation possibly murdered one of your civilians, oh what's that you embargoed them? You are now a bickering child.

Have a possible RP scenario. Was watching an old movie called 55 days in Peking,set during the Boxer Rebellion. There is still a rump state in Charbagnia, turmoil breaks out causing a government collapse leaving warlords and Freikorps control. A concentrated part of the capital is where the embassies are located and is cut off by hostile groups. Either through the League or a joint effort relief force to get through and rescue staff and citizens. This can be played politically both inside and outside the besieged area, espionage, and in the end military. A balancing act would have to be done so that no one country obtains to much control over the remains of Charbagnia

Is that an onomatopoetic rendering of an Imperator-class engine?

Yes

I've decided to go back to the drawing board on that ship. Mik raised a few points and after taking another look at the ship today I think I need to redo the front of the superstructure - perhaps try and go for a new, but less unique, front half of the ship.

Revamped the ship, changed the front and tweaked the rear - took some design features from the Type31e Arrowhead concept.

Sealion-class

Large, long-range submarine, equipped with deadly 610 mm torpedoes.
Veteran of the IW, assassin of the Scantarbian Navy from 1943-1950.


The Sealion-class is a Scantarbian large ocean-going submarine, built by Frederich-Setiawan-Alexei Shipyards for sustained operations far from the home support facilities, it carried enough fuel to go around the world one-and-a-half times. Sealion-class had ten torpedo tubes; eight at the bow and two at the stern and carried a total of thirty-two 610 mm Type 40 torpedoes that uses kerosene-oxygen wet-heater propulsion. The Type 40 torpedoes were renowned during the IW for its long-range, high speed, and heavy warheads and are well-loved by the captains who use them. The total of twenty torpedoes allowed Sealion-class captains to follow a convoy and strike night after night. Several Sealion-class is also equipped with a minelayer, allowing for mine operations. Further development of the ship ultimately lead to the creation of a submarine aircraft carrier, the Seahound-class

Secondary armament was provided by two 140 mm deck guns with 200 rounds total. To defend against aircrafts the submarine was armed with three 37 mm dual-mounted autocannon. The Sealion-class is equipped with two periscopes in the tower, as well as two snorkels; one on the rear for the engine and one on the tower for replenishing on-board oxygen. They also come equipped with two types of radar, the SV, a directional air-search radar capable to provide bearing and range of the target connected to the boat's CIC as well as IFF capability. The other is the SJ radar, a directional surface-and-air search radar mounted in a retractable mast, enabling the submarine to survey its surroundings while submerged. To enhance the stealth and survivability of the submarine it is equipped with anechoic tiles and each submarine went through a degaussing process prior to its commission. To aid with maneuvering the large submarine, it is also not only equipped with a large rudder but also a pair of additional rudders on the front and rear dive plane.
