    limitation of wood classes in the construction of boats.

    What's a helmet? and NO, just no

    Wait, kloothommel is in 7up now?

    [CABAL] Recruiting

    That's ok Otto, you fit perfectly where you are 😀

    F11 Coordinates removal

    Landmarks on the map, or the ability to make notes on the map (for instance whether the port is to the left or the right of that big mountain.) and just more tools for the map in general. I've been asking for map tools like in silent hunter since I started playing this game Approximate position once a day in good weather (noon) would also be historical.
  5. Imo this whole discussion about carrying your gold with you goes again to make NA into more and more hardcore mode. I thought we had learned in the past that this is not good for player numbers... And needing to actually transfer gold for port upkeep, might as well quit my job and start 'working' NA fulltime...
  6. I don't understand the currency thingy. Will this replace the gold used in the shop? Will each nation get their own currency? Or is this only used for crafting? Sounds way to complex with this coin being worth 8 of these and 4 of those etc. Why have so many different denominations?
  7. While testing elite spanish rig refit i noticed a definite boost to turning when using manual sails. Mainsails bonus basically gives yard power bonus.
  8. Better to contact Jointventure to consult how to a make a port massively profitable, even with only 10% tax...

    Thickness meta is back

    Oh look, somebody else visited the french with a similar build. Instant tribunal for 'hacking.' So maybe this new meta is too strong after all?

    Thickness meta is back

    I was having fun in the panzer lotion. (Cabal was doing it before it was cool ) But that was only because I was not on the receiving end. I don't supposed the dutch or Spanish had much fun when our fleet of 5-6 panzers rekt their 15 1st & 2nd rates... I don't think we visited the french yet, otherwise you'd have been complaining about how unfair titanium ships are.

    Thickness meta is back

    If only somebody would have made the 'no stacking of bonus to same stat' suggestion long ago... /s players have been asking for this forever... This, or better yet, diminishing returns on stacking bonuses to the same stat would solve so many problems that have existed for ages... It works perfectly in EvE for instance.

    Make Naval Action more realistic

    You are wrong. They could completely dismantle royals and topmast at sea, for instance to make the ship safer in an apporaching storm. By the time a captain would give this order the sea would already be rough and winds would already be gale force. There is no reason they could not put up replacements masts or jury rig during normal weather in a temporary lull in the fighting. Even easier to fish ('splint') a damaged but not completely broken mast. There are plenty of documented instances, i'm sure @maturin will have some examples.
  13. Graf, could you please try to argue your point without all the condescension? Would make it much easier for ppl to actually agree with you.

    Bottle drop rate

    Did they stealth-nerf the bottle drop rate? I feel like on average i'm getting half the amount of bottles i used to.

    Bottle drop rate

    Way back (i think roughly 7-8 months) i used to average 1 bottle for every 8-12 hours of fishing. Then they changed the rewards and I stopped fishing altogether cus it just wasn't worth it anymore. Now that fishing was worth it again I averaged around 1 in 12-16 hours, until this week, where I think I now more or less average 1 bottle in 24-48 hours. I have a buddy that regularly does trips to bermuda and he would normally get a bottle during the trip. This week I think he got 1 bottle in total.

    Bottle drop rate

    that's not my point, i'm asking if the drop rate changed, cus that's what it feels like the last week

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    Shame I was too sick to join this first official panzer PB fleet
  18. Now that money for port upkeep is getting more and more important with the new timer cost and it's influence on RvR, it's time that we finally get some proper clan management and finance tools. Problems: There is no convenient way to see even the most basic financial stats of a clan. Like total income and total cost. It's ridiculous that we either need to click every port in town management tab and manually write down costs and income, or write an external script to pull it from the api, to get this most basic of information! Another feature that is sorely lacking is basic bookkeeping on the clan warehouse. We don't even have 'total money put in', 'total money taken out', 'total spent on upkeep' etc. To take CABAL as an example, we seem to be managing paying for our massive upkeep, but nobody really knows how we're managing, because all we have to go on is final clan warehouse balance. @admin you really need to address this stuff before finalizing the UI.

    Caribbean Invasion News

    Saying something over and over doesn't make it true man. We took the dutch ports to show em shitty timers couldn't save them. Punishing dodge-timers before it was cool. And we did it with 5 guys, didn't need 3 other nations to do it either. Coattails... you clearly have no clue. And all I can do vs you is forum pvp, as I have not seen you since the earliest battles vs Russia. Don't say you don't enjoy forum pvp, because would be sad for you to spend so much effort on something you hate...

    Caribbean Invasion News

    Just pointing out parallels in the behavior between you 3, didn't mean to summon you from your slumber in your coffin . And like you and Greg, Banished will also fail to see any correlation between acting like a dick, pissing off half the server and ppl attacking his clan/nation for it in game. Then he can bitch and whine about how unfair it all is on the forum.

    Give us proper clan management / finances!

    Ok, i can understand that your time is limited, but logs aren't that hard to code right? It's database calls with an UI (which is why i said you should think about logs before finishing the UI, so you don't have to do double work)

    Give us proper clan management / finances!

    It's even worse. Without even the most basic tools, you wouldn't even know you are 1 million short without manually clicking every port to calculate revenue! And then you had to have written down what was in the CWH before down time, and ask every officer if they perhaps took out some money to buy resources or whatever etc etc...

    Take it elsewhere, make a dedicated thread! This is about clan management!
