Ship Submission Policy


All designers of ship specs or technology will submit their initial draft to the Engineering Director or named subordinate for an initial review process via email. At this it will be reviewed for it's readiness to be submitted for public review The designer will be contacted if the design will be returned for further work (whether that be a minor or a major change.) Otherwise, the design will be posted in the Engineering Department for public review as listed below.


Once cleared for public review the design shall be posted in the Engineering department under it's own location, which will also be used for any future draft thereafter. This review period will continue for two weeks. The Engineering Director or named subordinate will place the start and end time of the review period on the department MOTD so that it is clear to all.


The Engineerins Director or named subordinate will also make the final decision at the end of the spec. Potential decisions that can be reached are as follows:
  1. Design is approved for entry into the TM
  2. Design is returned to the designer for revision
  3. Design is rejected on grounds established in ENERGIE
This decision should be taken as final. See Dispute section of ENERGIE for further information on appeal.


All spec submissions must follow the instructions given in the Standard Ship Specification Format (SSSF) or Technology Submission Policy (TSP). The Modern Navy Plan (MNP) and Milwaukee Plan (MP) are there as guidance notes and will be used as a benchmark when reviewing specifications. You should bear these in mind when designing your spec. Failure to comply with the SSSF/TSP will result in the non-acceptance of the design.

Each revision draft must include a complete changelog above the header, listing each change that was made. If there were significant changes that were requested to be made and were not, a statement of justification for not making that change should be sent in writing to the Engineering Director. The Engineering Director will decide if the change warrants further discussion in the Engineering department or if any further action should be taken.
