  1. List of ships and other vessels in the game

    I'm aware of the similarities, but so far, it has not been confirmed if the devs used those plans or if they just looked at several model ships or their plans and came up with their own design. If they had build the brig to truly resemble the Fair American, they would have surely named her as such. Somaybe she was loosely inspired on by the Fair American, but we simply don't know. Keep in mind that there were a lot of brigs sailing these days; it was quite a popular rig. So she could just as easily represent some other brig. The Fair American is a nice model though. ~Brigand
  2. The cutter has the cutter rig. The difference between the cutter and the sloop* is that a cutter typically has more head sails; at least more than one, typically three. All topsail from the 18th century were still almost invariably square (the gaff top was only introduced very late in the 18th century) In addition to the main sail (which is a gaff sail on a cutter rigged vessel), cutters of old typically also had a yard to fly a square course from. As Maturin already observed: it would be unlikely that a cutter would fly both square course and the gaff mainsail at the same time. ~Brigand *As with most sailing related 'definitions' you could have a discussion about this. Sailing terminology is not helped by the fact that the terms are used interchangeably by different countries, for a great many years, etc.
  3. Discussion - Player ship selection 1st Half 2016

    I don't know an ETA, but I can tell you that the Player ship selection 1st Half 2016 has not been forgotten. ~Brigand
  4. Abuse of Pirate vs Pirate

    The topic of this thread is now being discussed within the moderation group. In the mean time, I'm closing this topic. Thank you all for your replies. ~Brigand
  5. Chat problem?

    There is a confirmed chat bug, the development team is working on a solution. ~Brigand
  6. Please fix Group/Clan invites!

    The development team is aware of this bug and working on a solution. ~Brigand
  7. Game cost after official release?

    Right now, nobody (except maybe @admin) knows what the final price for the game will be. ~Brigand
  8. How do I get back to the main menu?

    No problem. Closing topic. ~Brigand
  9. Bug respauwning

    Please report bug in-game using the F11 key. This way, the developers have access to all the information they need. ~Brigand
  10. How do I get back to the main menu?

    The port screen actually means you are in port with your ship. If you want access to this screen, you need to sail you ship back to a town and click 'enter port' (or something close to that) once you are really close to the town. ~Brigand
  11. Ships will be awarded later. If you logged in, created a character and played around a bit, you should receive it later. ~Brigand
  12. I'm guessing (but I don't know, I'm just a volunteer) that you will miss out on the extras: But nobody other than admin can make the decision. ~Brigand
  13. Client data corrupted

    Welcome to the open seas and good luck! closing topic, ~Brigand
  14. Careening

    Of interest: Protecting your underwater hull: Cleaning, graving and sheeting. Cheers, Brigand
  15. List of ships and other vessels in the game

    Thanks for the comments! I've clearly been away too long. I was under the impression that, our current snow is loosely based upon the HMS Ontario, while there are plans to include a more faithful representation of the HMS Ontario in the future. I'm however not sure about this. The "Pirate Frigate" is simply in the wrong category, I'll move it. Do you know if it is simply a variant of the Cherubim? What is the 74 / 3rd rate you speak about of which ship is it a varaint? ~Brigand
