  1. Gute Frage was wird eigentlich aus der Yacht, aber ich vermute mal die wird in ein Schiff nach dem neuen System umgewandelt und du kannst die ganz normal Redeemen. Aber ich denke es wird auch weiter hin Schiff vom NPC zukaufen geben und da du deinen Rang behälst kannst du die ja auch nutzen bis es gecrafted Schiff zukaufen gibt oder du was passendes karperst.
  2. With the wipe announcement, i would even say lets do a small battle with all the santa cecilia after the rally to get the dust of them. PS: Do we have a day and time for the rally yet?
  3. I crafted mine on that patch day befor they fix it, a 2/4 teak BS, speed with still 4 duras left. But haven't used it much since you can't replace it if its lost and other ships can do the same job with out that risk. But it is a very nice ship and a shame most people can't get hands on one.
  4. I just saw your post in the combat mechanic feedback thread and remembered some older threat about this topic and just tough i put the link to some here. First a very good and detail one: and here some other relevat once:
  5. After trying twice to level up crafting on the testbed and beening reset to 0 befor i was able to reacht any thing interessting level 28 first time and level 31 i have given up on crafting on the testbed. If the want us to test any crafting there they have to give us redemable crafting exp or a option to get lhc some where and maybe some redeemable bp (you can get most bp from breaking up green npc shop ships or cap ships).
  6. The same has happend to me, i remember it happend last time the tesbed was up as well shortly(a few days) be for it was shootdown for some bigger updates there.
  7. Indeed a very nice looking model, maybe it will make it into the game someday. Unfortunately for what i understand making the 3d model of the hull seems to be the "easy" part of making a ship for the game, all the thing like the damage model, the sails/rigging and all the moving part take a lot of time and work aswell.
  8. I guess you havn't realy looked into all the bonus and there effect (http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/17021-regional-trims/ )? First of all all regional bonuses have only postive effects and some are just op and it would be silly not to use them if you can, namely stuff like strong hull (5% more Hp, 7% more amore thickniss and -5% leak rate) or pirate refit (2% more speed, build-in studding sails and a huge boarding bonus) others are also use full like spanish hunter, british/frensh refit, nothern carpenter or agile hull. Combin them with the right golden modules and you will get a huge effect (stacking). Personaly i don't like the way they are implemented right now, same for the upgrade system since the game become too much gear focus and not skill based.
  9. it still doesn't work that way yet, i did cap two ships in a mission today without having the fleet peak and was able to send it to my outpost like it used to be.
  10. Well since you get a normal aga there can't be any difference. I did some tests if and how you can game the mark system and killed a few AI from missions and to cap some SoLs (you can get one Dura once from the NPC)
  11. For those interesseted the Navy Agamemnon note from the Admiralty store is just a normal Aga with proably a random build. I got a Live Oak Build Strength Pirate Refit one from it.
  12. yeah there where some changes rolled out to the testbed yesterday. Like they renamed PvP and PvE marks, increased the amount of PvE marks rewards by 4x or so and you need provitions and gunpower to craft a cutter now and all regions seem to be 49.8% hostility for all natons (and now some are 100%). At least that are the once i found sofar.
  13. The game is not optmized and the devs said it won't be done befor they are done with getting all the game features and the new UI in. Also i was able to run the game with about 50-60 fps one my desktop i7 with R290x and when that died with about 30 fps on the same rip with my old gtx470 on ultra (AA off) at 1920x1020. Even my Notebook (i7 with GT 650m) runs at around 20-25 fps with medium/high settungs.
  14. If you sink a player(or he surrenders) he is marked with a recently sunk tag in ow and a x befor his name in battle. If you sink him while he is marked you won't get the pvp marks you normaly would get. I haven't tested around with that yet though.
  15. For anyone interessted the bow figure - katherine gives 10% more bow and stern hp. I think the PvE challanges should be reworked abit, some of the combinations just don't make sence and are more like a suicide mission, like 1 cutter vs 2 brigs in the kill challange or demasting 2 merc with 1 snow. For the demasting challange something like a bigger ships vs 2 or more small ships like 4th rate vs 5/6th rates or a smaller ship trying to demast one bigger ship (5th rate vs 4/5th rate) would be more fun. I also noticed that the belle poule in the challange use a 18pd / 12 pd gun setup.
