Welcome to Dad's HideOut

Welcome to Dad's Hideout, the online man cave for dads. We are "dads first, and everything else second". What makes us strong is our common bond of being fathers. Not every day is easy, or a joy, but we come together to help one another out, and make ourselves better through the strength and knowledge of many dads. So pull up a chair and relax, unwind. You are amongst fellow dads here, and we're not here to judge. Only to help one another out as we go along this journey of Fatherhood, together.

Which summer play tank to choose?

24 Aug 2016

Posted by Hepius in Tips, Tricks, & Advice
T14, Matilda IV, or Excelsior? Is one of them a clear winner? I'm not familiar with these tanks.

Or do they all stink and I should take the 5 garage slots?

Set in 1983.  It feels so much like 1983.  Great show.

Navigator Mod on Aslains

27 Aug 2016

Posted by thedakar in World of Warships

Have you seen this?  It is a brilliant mod.  So simple, but SO informative.

Attached File  navigator.png   278.93KB   2 downloads

It displays your ship angle and the angle of your targeted ship.  Why is this important?  Well, in short, everything!
 

  1. If you are using main guns and the target is anything other than 90 degrees, you have to aim "above" or "below" in addition to "in front of them to get good hits.  
  2. If you are using torpedoes, you can see if the target line (the grey line displayed for torp launchers) is more likely to shink or grow)
  3. When a ship is running or closing at you at a good distance, do you need ot aim slightly left or right?  Hard to tell just looking sometimes.
  4. it displays YOUR angle to the enemy - if you have a hard time figuring out where the golden 35 degrees for bouncing shots is - never guess again!
  5. Having a hard time knowing when to us AP vs HE?  If the enemy is 65 degrees or more (generally) then use AP.  Less than 65 degrees use HE (as you are far more likely to bounce at 65 and less) 

My favorite is number 2 - this can help you determine if you should use a wide spread or fire one shot on the line and another ahead or behind, or maybe one ahead and one behind with no on the line... anyway, one of my more favorite informational mods.
