  1. Why? Because I would like an answer from people who know the game as they have created it. Thank-you for your reply. Thank-you. I didn't know if I was supposed to be Colonel for the rest of my career. Thank-you. Yes, that ìs a possibility. It would be nice to know though rather than speculate.
  2. I have compared UG Gettysburg with UG Civil War. 1. The graphics on UG Gettysburg are very much clearer. UG Civil War is blurred. 2. The little soldiers are bigger in UG Gettysburg. Why? PS. My Corps Commander always remains at the same rank, Colonel, which is the game level at which I have chosen to start. 3. The game level and the Avatar's rank should not be tied. PPS. Should I start a new thread for all these questions, DEVELOPERS?
  3. There you go! If English is not your first language communication can be even worse.
  4. Nice to see an expansion of UG Gettysburg. UG Civil War is definitely worth the money even in early access. Has no one said anything about the 'figures' being even smaller in UG Civil War than they were in UG Gettysburg? Is there any plan to increase them even slightly? I have tried adjusting the graphics options to no avail. I have new computer glasses but it still is a great strain on the eyes. It would be so nice to see the figures just slightly bigger and with uniforms appropriate to the Brigades. Thanks for the great work!
  5. One durability ships won't work for anyone for all the reasons listed above. There is no way anyone would risk a 1 dura. ship, without having a ready replacement first and even then not. Three durabiity ships should be the minimum. 3 to 5 durability is okay.
  6. It would be easier to understand what people write if they didn't use this infernal shorthand as if they were texting their friends on a cellular phone! Thank-you. Maybe, Naval Action 2's map is part of the projected European map to be additional to the Caribbean map, I think.
  7. When are they thinking of releasing it? Second half of 2017? 2018?
  8. That's one possibility; I don't see any probability.
  9. No, that's not it. Duh
  10. Thanks. How did you change the way he was facing?
  11. Olham, is your avatar John Austen?
  12. Me too. Ensign to Midshipman. (I deserve better! Just joking.)
  13. I like to see them as if on parade. After all, wargames is about colour, too. (I hate it that Attila Total War has muted colour in comparison to the colourful preceding games.)
  14. I grieve for your blindness. How do you play Naval Action when you cannot see? Seriously, though. Since the evidence as presented shows sailors, officers and marines in uniform--and other books on this subject also--why do you persist with this fantasy that 'technically' (whatever that means, maybe, you mean in effect) they wore no uniforms?
  15. LOOK! 18th Century sailors with UNIFORMS. Now, wouldn't it be nice if our crews were properly uniformed? Sailors, Marines, Officers on deck, all in uniform. What a nice touch, developers! Why not? (Thanks Destraex for the picture.)
  16. I agree with this post. Always testing some thing that is not necessary. Also, I read somewhere that the developers will make skilled players able to sink opponents even faster. Why? If they are skilled they already have an advantage, why add an artificial advantage? How are less skilled players like myself supposed to become more skilled if we get sunk even faster by the naval action aces? ILLOGICAL. It seems like the perfect shooting AI ships that we had to fight against a few months ago!
  17. 1st Half of 2017? When is this game going to be released then? Not before July 2017?
  18. COULD SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER THIS: KICKSTARTER 1. Does this mean that if I pay for a special ship-pack, I get the ships, but players who have not paid for it do not? MISSIONS 2. No more missions means that there is only PvE against AI ships or AI ship fleets? THANK-YOU.

  20. From what I understand there are two 'Hermione.' One is a Royal Navy ship given to the Spaniard after a mutiny and renamed the 'Santa Cecilia'. Later captured by the Royal Navy, the 'Hermione'/'Santa Cecilia' became the 'Retaliation.' The second 'Hermione' is a French frigate (1779-1793). She was Lafayette's ship for his voyage to the Thirteen Colonies, in 1780.
  21. What was the state of the game in March 2016? What changes would bring that number of players back?
  22. Also, what flag will you give the Outlaw class? Should it come about, it could be named Mercenary class. Here is a flag suggestion:
  23. Cannot think of anything more confusing leading to boring. It's difficult enough getting players to come out and seek a fight, let alone help your own nationals.
  24. It's funny but cute little stocky ship. Already, I have been sunk once in it. I'll probably go out and do it again.
