    The Dutch will get at least one ship from this. No need to be salty another could be in the works. Plus you have a couple made by community members. You never know. They might make it into the game

    She was suggested at the begining of this thread, in his long list. But she carries 54 guns and is a double-decker. Are double deckers accepted in the poll at that gun range(50-60)? I'm not sure if you can call them heavy frigates since those are the ones you are looking for. The ones i have proposed at that gun range who are double deckers as well, were proposed only because are from the preffered nations.Same with the Dutch ships suggested from other people i suppose. Anyway there she is

    Carolina Italian/Austro-Hungarian 34 guns 1808 Probably her in 1818: High res plans here:https://www.dropbox.com/s/zsbkvjmtp8ul2fe/CAROLINA%20%281%29.pdf?dl=0
  24. Naval Action at its current state is a very peculiar creation. It is like a Frankenstein’s monster. Made out of a lot of different body parts that don’t really work together, look unnatural and have to be changed from time to time.The brain, which is the only healthy part(combat) is desperately trying to keep the rest alive.At the same time it’s by far the part with the biggest size. It’s a creation without an homogenous body. It s a hydrocephalus body. RvR, trading, ow PvP, veterans and newcomers and all other aspects all are connected but in a way where the hole body can’t function properly. Why will NA legends be a success? If we break down to bits both of the games we get the following: People expect legends to be a game about combat and sailing ships.The healthy part of the Frankenstein’s creation will become the core of the new game’s body. NA is the same but with an open world and nothing else. So the difference is huge playground populated with (in good times) 2500 player on 2.754.000 km². While players and AI are the only content besides ships NA can offer to the customer, the other parts are obviously underdeveloped. Therefore he is quickly “satisfied” with the content on his hands. Because of the above and the current state of the gaming industry, a switch of focus on NA Legends makes sense but what will happen to the oddly patched up NA body? Have Game Labs shifted interest? Is it too challenging to keep the body alive(keep designing the game)? The latest content we have seen has been directly connected to NA Legends and the mechanics keep bouncing back and forth, still trying to find a sweet spot but it’s still about the head(combat). Countless of ideas have been proposed regarding other parts of the game’s body. Some not so good,others, brilliant. Most of them, not even tested or considered because “they wouldn’t work in the current environment of a multiplayer game since they are single player aspects” or of whatever reasons. NA can’t be just a game about combat. It is actually in dire need of these single player aspects. It's the adventure that has driven captains and seamen into the seven seas and there is no real adventure ingame. It is possible to experience the whole game within a few days. It’s the respect to history that appeals to many captains and not the Jack Sparrow imagery, Nations with the same capabilities and infrastructure of a global empire. The way Game labs picked up a niche product and started to form a body is admirable but it shouldn’t be distorted from the original idea just to appeal more. It shouldn’t become a game full of Jack Sparrows or Hornblowers or whatever. Game Labs shouldn’t do what companies like Ubisoft or EA do with their games.Game Labs should focus on the reason why they picked up such a project and why they have chosen to introduce OW. Was it the adventure of the unknown? Was it curiosity? Those are strong feelings that the game fails to deliver but are important aspects of the human nature. Far is never far enough. Do what developers like CD Projekt Red do. It will be done when it’s done, but it will be done right Respectfully, Sella I will link a few of those in hope that they will be re-considered. http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/1534-exploration-gameplay/?tab=comments#comment-32219 http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/16866-ideas-for-the-pacific-coast/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/6805-pacific-coast-whats-the-plan/?do=findComment&comment=218998 http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/7143-honour-system/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/7717-career-paths/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/3608-notoriety-infamy-heat-and-bounties/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/6921-player-roles-discussions/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/6644-and-idea-for-give-pirates-a-fun-role-in-the-nations-fight-for-ports-ownership/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/6664-pirate-havens-port-security-and-trade-regulations/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/6364-morale-and-mutiny/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/6179-national-traits-faction-differences/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/5957-letters-of-marque-privateering-and-prize-taking/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/5503-skills-specializations-and-how-the-player-plays/ http://forum.game-labs.net/topic/5322-professions-businesses/
