  1. I consider my badness "well rounded"

    Use for Gold Ore Nowadays?

    I should just Gold Plating my ship - much cheaper than the mythical "Copper Plating"

    Use for Gold Ore Nowadays?

    Once upon a time there were only about 5 ports that produced Gold Ore and it was a big deal to hoard a bunch for lineship production, but then they added a bunch of new ones all over the map and nobody cares anymore.

    True Economy: An Experiment and Vote

    Sure but it's a nosebleed price, and I think all the desirable upgrade crafting stuff like Greenheart Logs and Crooked Cedar don't qualify?

    Bring boarding to a new level

    I don't think I'd want a boarding window to pop up in the middle of a battle. It would be good to have automatic musket fire effects at a certain distance. Grenades, fire bombs, etc at a closer distance. Maybe grapples when you start rubbing paint. Chaos!

    True Economy: An Experiment and Vote

    I've never used it, so I dunno. What is the intended effect?
  7. How about we NOT have any information about what move the opponent planning, or their prep/morale/etc? (Why do we know their exact prep number?) Kill the rock/paper/scissors/spock stuff. Just crew numbers and decide what action you want to queue up for the next round.
  8. Yeah, I've been on the receiving end of a thumping 2-vs-7 loss like that.

    Fleet Question

    Be VERY VERY careful not to "dismiss" your fleet ships when you take them out of fleet, or they can be destroyed. Always chose "send to docks" unless your docks are already full, in which case you'll have to make space.
  10. Not just noobs. I have 1400 hours in the game and I'm still effectively a "noobs".

    PvP Heat Map

    It would be interesting to have a complete NA traffic "heat map", with some kind of delay. Maybe a map showing all the traffic in a day, posted after the server reset. Just a blobby heat map to show activity and general traffic lanes, not routes of individual ships.

    Overloaded shipwrecks

    We just need to be able to choose what we collect from the shipwreck. I usually dump the Terra Cotta, Stained Glass, Amber, etc right away to make the sail home faster.

    Difficult port entrances

    Is it really unreasonably hard to get into though? This thread was made long ago when some ports where more difficult to get into than they should have been, and needed to be fixed.
