    Le Requin Testing and Feedback

    http://mnm.webmuseo.com/ws/musee-national-marine/app/collection/record/8950 See "le Requin". Her model is exposed in le Musėe de la Marine in Paris. She was a shallow water ship, with 24 guns (8 livres françaises= 8.5 pd, almost 9pd), and 36 pierriers (small canons which can fire stone balls instead of iron balls, might be replaced by swivels?) http://mnm.webmuseo.com/ws/musee-national-marine/app/collection/record/8951 Another interesting link for "le Singe" a smaller chebec with a mixed rigging, main and rear masts squared. Quite a famous ship in France, was commanded by Suffren, who made plans to use some of these ships in the Channel against British traders (20 x 6pd guns). EDIT: Love "Le Musée National de la Marine". Better visit that than the Eiffel Tower or Le Louvre!

    Le Requin Testing and Feedback

    Could I get several of these? (Is she tradeable between players). I'd like to test her as an harassment ship vs the daily Bellona visits we daily have off Fort-Royal. For sure I'll lose her soon!

    Pain Scale (Let's have some fun)

    Yes, @Banished Privateer, you are a pain. Because 100 days at sea is too short. Need at least 250!

    Pain Scale (Let's have some fun)

    King is not a pain, nor a risk. He is a fact. In France, we are enthusiasts about new comers, especially from North America. @Raxius. They need you to become a pain. Would you need some VM's to help settlement?

    Patch 24: Properly depowering your staysails

    I was thinking that XP rewarded for crew and sail damages was an improvement, not an error. 😞

    Patch Notes & Feedback

    En ce qui concerne les fleet practices, elles sont nécessaires, et les limites lorsque FR est attaquée a été également "remontée" sur le forum Naval Action France: http://navalaction-france.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=3654&p=30058#p30058 En ce qui concerne l'examen d'endurance, il a été conçu pour verifier que les candidats ont bien acquis la nécessité d'anguler son bateau pour resister aux bordées enemies. Il n'est donc pas étonnant que les deux navires ne peuvent pas être abordés. Cette notion d'angle est très important et assez méconnue de nos joueurs. Lors d'un screen la semaine dernière, je l'ai re-expliqué sur la route de la bataille, terminant l'explication par "et donc, vivent les angles". Et un joueur a répondu: "pourquoio tu dis-çà," Il y a encore du chemin à parcourir en formation...

    New "Special" Trims

    I am not OK with any RNG function in crafting. *** But: *** I should be OK with special knowledge a crafter could learn, some knowing how to build an agile ship, some a fast one, or something else.

    Free State of Puttanelle

    I guess the Free State of Puttanelle is multinational. Any frontier here?

    Patch Notes & Feedback

    Il y avait aussi quelques petits malins qui faisaient exprès, une fois la bataille finie, de couler les PNJ amis pour les piller.

    Proposition for French Ranks

    So simple knowing that! Just find 15 ranks for each nation, knowing that some of them won't be strictly historical.

    Proposition for French Ranks

    Since I play Naval Action, I am somehow disappointed with the French Ranking in Naval Action. I made some checks to confirm or refute my intuitions. Now, I can propose something. I know this is a detail, but this may be important for immersion in the timeline. Please, refer to Wikipedia - Grades de la Marine nationale française Google translation is your friend, but I can be too if some further clarification is necessary. First remark, for determination of the highest rank, ranks above “Lieutenant Général des Armées Navales” are honorific ranks only (limited to old fat guys like I am more and more). I would have preferred to limit the highest rank in Naval Action to something lower than that (the Lieutenant General du Ponant was in fact commanding the French Fleet in Mediterranean Sea), but there are not enough ranks below this, as commanding officers, even of tiny boats. Taking into account the ranks used from Colbert (minister of Louis XIV) to 1786, I propose the french ranking to be: Garde de la Marine Capitaine de Flûte Lieutenant de Frégate Enseigne de Vaisseau Capitaine de Brûlot Lieutenant de Vaisseau Capitaine de Frégate Capitaine de Vaisseau Chef d’Escadre Lieutenant Général

    The Free State of VCO

    Don't know. Don't care. Maybe, this can be understood, maybe not. Just the same as when HAVOC switched to VP. We got the same warning when KoC boys came in. And they attacked our allies. And we survived. And we will survive! "I am the Belle Poule, frigate of the King of France; I come from the sea and I go to the sea; the ships of the King, my master, never submit to inspection." (Charles de Bernard de Marigny, Commanding La Belle Poule, which was at that moment just between HMS Hector & HMS Courageux, both 74-guns)

    The Free State of VCO

    So, welcome in France to @Raxius, @Christendom, to VCO and to all who'd like to join. You will have fun, for sure. And when you don't find it, go and take it! Even if what can be read above here from your old mates is not always positive, we got similar warning before the arrival of WO & BLANC... They found their place around Fort Royal and la Nouvelle-Orleans, whatever and sometimes in spite of the French Council. Remember that freedom is engraved on the French genome. Half of the messages in the French chat are now written in English. We need more! Maybe reading something in French from Christendom! Do you want PvP? Join France!

    More content to game!!

    Just open the gameplay to all playing preferences, open it to independent players, add more stuff for sale (present quantities are self limiting the server population to 500, such teak and WO), add some in game diplomatic system to remove nation civil wars, harassment of some nations, and at the contrary players changing some nation for lack of RvR, add again trading missions, ... Please open the game!
