With >400 fleet capacity I should be able to field three.

”All Lives Matter” is at best an ignorant dismissal of people who actually care about lives.
At best.

I might make an actual signature one of these days. But for now, and probably for a long time, you’re stuck with this short, simple, modest sig.
Thank you for clicking on the thing, though.

I concur with this assessment, tho my fleet cap is considerably smaller.

My way of playing is something like this.
1. download game and hope settings are good
2. play a nation that i'm familiar with (usually Prussia/Germany) on the easiest difficulty
3. begin playing and try to bumble my way through a few years
4. fail miserably
5. get a tad bit better from experience or guides
6. play a few easiest campaigns as varying nations
7. download mods that improve the game in small ways (which disables achievements)
8. Play improved vanilla game
9. download major mods like RT56 and Kaiserreich
10. play however i want but since even the smallest mods are enabled achievements are disabled.

It happens, Vanilla Ironman is all well and good, but disabling them entirely is not terrible.
