  1. Enough with the sadomasochism (looting wrecks)

    I'd like to see two things regarding the epic loot: 1. Add some of it to sealed bottles. Sealed bottles are a completely worthless waste of time at this point. 2. It'd be interesting to see a deadman's wreck here and there that are not announced, scattered throughout infrequently used parts of the map to reward exploration.

  3. Greenzone & Reinforcements

    Players in reinforcement zones can only call reinforcements if they are: 1. Part of that faction. 2. The defender. If they are in a mission, they are an attacker. (However, those missions close immediately.) If they are attacking OW AI, they are the attacker. If they attack you, well... they are the attacker
  4. Polish Faction Drama

    Though you claim to have been headed to Saint Louis, you were anchored outside of Les Cayes, a strange position for one on a mission. Packet ships are required to make all haste. Why did you disobey your orders? As things are, one can only assume that you were a hostile actor. Your ship was sunk as a matter of course, and the three officers my Braves took captive were scalped before the Polish intervened. Should they survive their ordeal, you may have them back as compensation. We recommend a broad-brimmed hat and dressings changed twice a day.
  5. Thoughts of a Transylvanian

  6. Thoughts of a Transylvanian

    This is my first post of perhaps a series of creative writing. It is to be taken in the context of the 18th Century, and any response on it would be appreciated in a like manner. Ideally, this thread will be moderated under the new ideals of National News, however those manifest. I would request that any trolling or overly harsh language be moderated by self or by staff.
  7. [SANDS] Smith and Sons

    How is payment managed?
  8. Turn inertia - discuss

    I like it. Almost all testing I've done with it is with the Surprise, but it makes raking a bit harder. I think that's a good thing.
  9. Recently Killed Should not be a license to attack

    Because the actions of the few have had community-damaging results. Unfortunately, there are a few rotten apples that spoil the bunch
  10. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    Except three factions have them in safe zones. And the idea that the other woods are pointless/useless... well, some people just don't appreciate the finer things in life.
  11. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    Well, that was a silly and pointless change. The point remains that the woods, at the very least, need to be moved out.
  12. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    If you can't realize that gold is almost entirely irrelevant, and all that matters are ships, modules, and skill books, then not even Pig Cloud can help you.
  13. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    Charcoal is different from coal. Charcoal is made from oak logs. The only use for coal, last time I checked, was for making carronades and long cannons.
  14. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    I copied and pasted, deleting what I figured was "junk." It is not my concern if you were too lazy to actually read through the list for yourself. These are resources that make "nice" things but not "necessary" things. Without them, nations can still, entirely within their protection zones, craft oak and fir vessels and medium cannons to go on it. Everything else should actually involve some modicum of risk.
  15. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    British: Caguairan Log Coal Teak Log Danes: Coal Dutch: Coal Grietje van Dijk French: Coal Live Oak Logs Pirates: Coal Spanish: Almeria Saltpeter Caguairan Log Coal Extra Labor Mahogany Log Pino Ocote Log Sabicu Log Swedes: Coal United States: Coal Live Oak Log White Oak Logs NB: I might be missing some other important trade goods that are required for making modules, as I cannot recall the requirements for all modules off hand.
  16. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    Just because it is hard to incentivize players to leave the safe zone doesn't mean all attempts should be abandoned, however. Not all people are equally risk averse, or we would never have anyone setting sail. As such, you should think to decrease the profitability of safe zones, and increase the profitability of areas outside of them. Such as removing all loot drops excepting repairs from within safe zones.
  17. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    While that would be an interesting mechanic, it's too open to exploiting. Marks are only awarded when ships are destroyed.
  18. Swap AI reinforcements for battles that do not close to the defender

    The first would help a lot, and should be done ASAP. The second... *Shrugs* I could go either way on it. Also of note - look at the list of trade goods at the bottom of this first post. These are all inside the safe zones, let alone those that are only 30 seconds sail outside of safe zones, which are (due to initial invulnerability timer and tagging timer) effectively a part of the safe zones as well.
  19. Almost like I wrote about that exact thing back in June...
  20. Marked with the Black Spot - Caribbean

    That should be mandatory to even be on the front page.
  21. Marked with the Black Spot - Caribbean

    Simple would be disallowing any conditions at all, and you collecting the bounty for dispersal
  22. Marked with the Black Spot - Caribbean

    Part of it is pay for you maintaining the work, part of it (should be) pay for you being the collective point to turn in and collect bounties. Basically, you should be charging for convenience - but also integrity. Who knows who is actually going to pay up if you don't have them collected beforehand?
  23. Marked with the Black Spot - Caribbean

    You definitely should be taking the rewards upfront for the bounties posted.
  24. Marked with the Black Spot - Caribbean

    You are organizing it, after all.
  25. King's Council Announces Peace With The United States

    Huh. Well, I didn't actually read the thing...
