Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

A "view-from-the-turret", Dreadnoughts is an excellent World War I naval simulation that offers an interesting, albeit very slow, portrayal of tactics during the few World War I encounters. The game system was interesting, albeit before its time in terms of computer hardware capabilities. Designer Peter Turcan greatly improved the breathtaking isometric battlefield engine used in his earlier Waterloo and modified it to depict tactical naval combat. The result is a spectacular, unique naval simulation whose beauty is more than skin deep, due to the inclusion of realistic factors such as weather effects and more. Definitely a game worth investigating for all armchair commanders, especially those (i.e. most of us) whose hardware couldn't handle the game when it first came out :)
