How to increase tonnage limit on a empty ship (Closed)
I have a design bigger than the 600mm 46mm gun skeleton. I'm still in the process of making it, the deck is not finished yet, but I have reached maximum limit. When I go trial run it floats very high, as if there is no weight to the ship. What to do??
Answer from: Someone
Try to use bigger prices like 2x3x1 or bigger there now a 1x20x1 deck now
Answer from: Dilanski
Have you filled up the % bar in the top? it isn't measured by weight or volume but by individual pieces, so if that's full replace some blocks with larger pieces, like the 2*3 & 2*2 blocks. if you mean the "tonnage limit" warning that appears when you try and add a large piece then you don't have enough room, try making the deck bigger.

Every one is right, something like this happened to me also. the ship I was working on kept on falling over when I turned, but there was not enougth room to fix it.

Ok so apparently this game was originally Japanese and is translate to English and the translation can be somewhat hard to understand. By tonnage limit they don't means your ship is too heavy at all, it just means that the part you're trying to add does not have any open space to fit on your ship. So, expand it

Thanks Dilanski, I have done that now I can really do some damage! Besides hitting the Yamato, its bloody hard!

I tried all of these on my 600 armor hull that I just spent 100000 points. I need to know how to put more stuff on it. Because if I can only put a couple bridges on it, how the heck am I supposed to fit a 46cm gun! Which weighs more then all the bridges I put on it times 500!

You guys are acting weird I mean buying skeletons that's just cheap u would fare off much better using free design and the problems u have with deck size that's even weirder just make a huge ship use armour not hull and only use ballast when u need more stability I usually only use 400 mm large armour to occupy the build limit while having a large ship and who said the Yamato is tough that thing is full of hulls and decorations btw I know that the deck is made of armour so don't say I'm dumb for saying hull at the deck what I mean is the main building is full of crap
Answer from: Hunterkiller
My ships usually have 700+ armour and 3000+ toughness. I don't glitch in any way like speed glitch. And I'm on the top 5000 btw my name is not hunter killer on Game Center this is just a temporary name.
Answer from: Bonbonben
The hull of the ship might be too high. The location of the hull indicates where the waterline is. Make sure not to put the hull in a un-armored location or the enemy will take it out and make you sink. You also don't want to put down too many ballasts or they will go against you on stability. If the hull is too high, the ship will sink easy. If the hull is lowered, you have a good ship.

Every time you put 10 parts, whatever it's size, the tonage will increased 1% so change the hull with the large hull(2x2 or 3x2 hull it's okay) and replace your armor with the big one(400mm lightweight 3x2x1 or the large one) I have do it to my ship and the tonage decreased. Hope help :)

Idk if anyone still plays the game but hopefully this will help. I thing tonnage is actually how many blocks the game can process per ship so if you have a bigger ship its better to use block like: 2x2x1, 3x2x1 and or 20x2x1.
