  1. Work in progress: Working title.

    Yes I remember that, I chose SH original it seemed to work best.
  2. Work in progress: Working title.

    I hope it's based on NA now and stays clear of WoWs. I very much looking forward to this new game!! I just read a little more on this; if it comes close to the original Silent Hunter it will be a fantastic game, I really liked the crew improvement and promotions and medals in SH. The better the crew, the ship performance increases. A few names I suggest would be; Iron hearts, Rule the Waves, Naval or just Swords and Guns, Naval Horizons, Hearts of oak and iron (after the Navy song). Ok it's starting to sound corny.
  3. looking for an na group

    We are British on PvE based in Grand Turk. The Flying Powder Monkeys.
  4. Fleet ships and carpenters

    Would installing a carpenter upgrade in a fleeted ship make a difference? Will it actually self repair while in battle?
  5. Any confirmed release date on this yet?
  6. Epic Battles

    Now that some of our clan and I have had a chance at a few Epic challenges I realize that it's not just difficult but almost impossible to beat. I love a challenge as most do but I think the present difficulty level for Epic missions is a little too high. Facing off against 9 hardened, seemingly faster ships that not only load quicker but also have laser guided cannon balls is beyond anyone I know.. so far. I'm not a new player and certainly not the best. But 4 of 6 First rate ships (and players) lost their ships last night. The last 2 barely escaped with more then 60-70% damage. I suggest the NPC/AI ships be cut back to 6 or 7 not 9 and the AI ship be slightly reduced in armour and speed. I do like the extreme challenge of the Epic battles though and feel the missions are worth while keeping, just tamed a bit. What about different level Epics like before. Epic 1,2 and hardest 3. All for first rate competitors. I really don't mind losing my ship to a worth while challenge but sunk within a few minutes wasn't fun. I will refrain from calling is AI cheating but it was mentioned by more then one of our team.
  7. Epic Battles

    Really, why not?
  8. Epic Battles

    On second thought about this - what about allowing up to 9 friendlies vs 9 enemies. That way we'll have an option.
  9. Epic Battles

    Interesting you would mention this but I discussed this very method with the others this morning. Chain shot will at least slow them down and make them easier targets after.
  10. Epic Battles

    Some good suggestions here. To be honest the aforementioned tactic is more or less what we did. We are going to try it again with harder armour ships. I'll report back with the results later. But I looking forward to the challenge.. again.
  11. Epic Battles

    Sounds like a different Epic. Two of us faced off against one AI Santi, I in a Vic and my buddy in a Santi while organizing on Discord. We both managed 10-20% damaged on the AI ship and we both sank. And we entered with 6 ships.
  12. This game needs 4 stars before release!

    And active AI/NPC port battles.
  13. Those PvP purchased upgrades could be stacked with existing PvE upgrades for better performance, could they? Or would that max out the upgrade? Just wondering.
  14. I see, unfortunate that these wonderful upgrades can't be purchased by those on PvE.
  15. When I try to exchange combat marks for PvP marks in PvE I get this.. no blue print.
  16. On PvE, I can't seem to exchange Combat marks for PvP marks, is there a reason for that?
  17. Limit Chainshot

    Just slow down the reload of chain-shot, after all it took slighly more time in real life to load chain shot.
  18. Nerf or Re-balance the Wasa

    The Wasa is a wonderful ship, I recommend leaving it just the way it is. The only thing I would change is make it craftable but I can imagine many will have an issue with that. Making a superior ship available to anyone with 150 CMs is fair. Why would you want to change that? Enjoy a well designed ship, and go hunting. If it tops the 4th Rates - so be it. Get one.
  19. Earliest Deep Sea Navigation Tool Found

    By the looks of it maybe some of the original markings, such as degree or points maybe missing or erroded. Nice image though thanks for posting FF.
  20. Unable to log on - PvE

    Is the main PvE server down, I can't seem to log on at the moment. It's back up.
  21. Crafters names in colours

    Just a suggestion: crafters names could have colours for example; Level 1-10 could be grey, Level-11 to 20 green, Level-21 to 30 blue, Level 31 to 40 purple, and gold for 41+. Just like the old quality system. This will help IDing crafters in clans and OW in chats etc. What do you think?
  22. What do you think of this idea? Is it doable?



  23. Idea: Ship Build Number tagging

    Wow, now that I have had 30 minutes for a "scratch the surface" read of your answer - I can appreciate the complexity of NA more.
  24. Wow extremely interesting. Nice post!
