These rules are quick and simple to play providing a game in the period 1880 to 1906 not complicated by too much detail. The scale is 1 nautical mile to 10cm. The rules incorporate weather, spotting and minefields.

The rules have been enhanced with the introduction of Crew Quality and the use of Contact Markers to replicate the initial uncertainty of where the enemy forces might be.

A simple gunnery system requires a roll to hit with each gun, and an innovative damage syatem takes account of the range and penetration by specifying the dice that are rolled for damage. Torpedo and Mine attacks are resolved using similar mechanisms, so there is a consistent feel throughout the combat system.

In line with the intention of the rules to provide a simple system, armour has been standardised for each type of vessel and guns have been grouped by calibre into 9 classes. A detailed differentiation between the performance of ships and guns is not used. Not all guns can engage all vessels, and the largest guns have a minimum range.

A ship data list is provided covering the significant vessels of 10 nations in this period with over 130 vessels. A simple conversion system allows you to quickly put together the ship data you need for ships that do not appear in the data tables.

Pre-prepared ship data records are provided for the vessels that took part at the Battle of Tsushima.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
