    Replace EU Trader with new mechanic

    EU Trader mechanic is very complex and complicated for players. Calculating prices, looking at base prices, placing contracts... Once you understand all of it, it's simple. But it's pain in the ass explaining the "hidden mechanic" for new players. I suggest that all ports producing resources will have them in stock at all time at the exact price of 4x the production cost, just like the EU Trader mechanic. It will solve all the confusion and complexity of the mechanic, make it plain and simple. Example: Mortimer produces oak logs. By the suggested mechanic, there will be always oak logs in port stock by the price of 292 gold (4x 73 gold). Of course, players can sell it cheaper so it won't disrupt or change NA Economy, just make things simpler and remove unneeded hidden mechanics.

    Testbed - Teleport fees

    @admin speaking about logic, if teleport fees go live, I want ability to teleport to every port of my nation and every free port on the map (without having outpost there)

    TESTBED - Port User Interface Feedback.

    @admin I just tested new transparent Discord Overlay and it's so awesome I would actually think it could be much better than the current clumsy game chat window:

    Caribbean Invasion News

    Welcome to Caribbean Invasion News! Do you wanna stay up to date? You're in the right place! Clans joining the new invading nations: RDNN/LEGO/PLANB/CHAOS forming a Russian clan called REDS RUS clan moving over to the Russian nation PODW announced change to the Russian nation while several other Russian clans in pirates did not decide yet. Several new clans formed in Prussian nation (PRH probably after British clan WITC, ROVER clan, LIONS left Dutch nation and joined Prussia) PFK leaves the Swedish nation and joins finally their true side - Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. FBOX will departure from the pirate nation and join as well. Polish representation in British nation (RED clan) is undecided at the moment.

    TESTBED - Port User Interface Feedback.

    Allow us to take hostility missions right from the map. Skip the nation choosing and annoying scrolling through dozens of ports like this: _____________________________________________ It took me also a while how to check the details of the ship being sold. I tried to put my mouse over the ship name "Surprise" and nothing. I tried to click on it and nothing happened. These are the first natural actions of players trying to find more details about the ship. Knowing they are somewhere out there, I figured I need to put my mouse pointing at the square box with the number... Also, I don't really like the new card info compared to the old one. It looks better with the skin, but it's hard to access the most important information: I marked the most important information, it's spread all over the card box and takes a few seconds to process, unlike the current card box. Some of these are small font or placed somewhere in the corner, which is not very handy: ___________________________________________ Last note, the repair warning looks ugly in port, reminds me of "Reinforcement Zone" marker which is identical and that's what I thought it is before I checked it: ^^^^^^^^^ Which on the side note covers the "R" marker and compass, while more logical would be putting the card box at the top in the empty space:

    My port, my monopoly.

    Do you understand the fact that a group of 25 players can actually make like 20x more cash in few hours than from port tax after a few weeks? Do you understand the fact that all the lost ships in hostility, screening, PB, all the summed up costs of the capturing process most of the time exceed the income for months? I think only Cartagena is the port that could recompense the losses in a relatively short time. A 1st rate with proper mods and guns costs probably between 5 to 10 million gold. Let's say on average one side loses 5-10 ships, that already a total cost of 25-50m gold.

    My port, my monopoly.

    Yes, I'm talking 2 months timeline. I guess no one is attacking Marsh Harbour, Harbour Island and William's Bay because of the timers? Maybe you didn't come up with that idea, drop the timer and you will see soon attacks on these ports. West End was attacked several times, at nights, days and it always gets defended. Speaking about useless ports, You can see only 1 end of the story which is Nassau. On the other hand, you forget of all surrounding ports of Nassau that produce all the trading goods that make traders earn millions of gold by being sold in Nassau. You've gotta look at the big picture, pal.

    double flips?

    I guess SOL is not part of the GB, duly noted.
  12. Banished Privateer

    My port, my monopoly.

    I do remember at least 3 Nassau PBs + attempt on hostility, I do remember about 5 or 6 attacks on Little Harbour, about 3-4 attacks on West End, maybe 2 attacks on Mangrove Cay, not mentioning all of the ports taken around by ORCA (like Sandy Point, La Desconocida, Little Isaac Rocks) a still new-ish Danish clan. William's Bay was captured from Sweden by Prussia, then taken from Prussia by the US, then Prussia recaptured it from the US and then pirates stole it from the Prussia. All of that happened in like past 2 months? Also, West End wasn't any multi-flip, the port is also not defended by WO, they don't do shallow thingies. Port is being defended by EU French successfully in all last 3 attempts?

    double flips?

    I guess the warning does not apply for triple flips and up? 😏

    ??? lol GB is pushing Spain, not the other way around and pirates haven't attacked GB ports in a long while, but I suspect that GB will attack Portillo soon-ish.

    Yet another map: Naval Action map

    but...... It's not handy. It's more clumsy to use browsers, apps, tabs, calcs and websites while playing the game... We could make it all different ourselves if the game allowed modding... which it does not. So... if we don't have modding in the game, I would greatly appreciate Devs to include in-game basic tools of navigation, sailing profiles and data that should be easily accessible and not hidden somewhere in the API only for the heavily involved users that know how to operate with it. Just my 2 cents.

    double flips?

    Says the guy from the nation that lost La Navasse, Apalachicola and San Jose against France, carry on.
  17. That's some good and proper drama we've got here, although without insults. Instead, we can see gentlemen slap face duel.

    My port, my monopoly.

    Campeche is the Gulf money-maker. Maybe it's not super trade hub, but it's such a great port with spawning ports right next to it that every day it prints pure cash. Kindly disagree, my memory tells me about dozens of port battles in the Bahamas. Maybe it's not happening 24/7, but in the past 2 months, there was probably about 20 PBs. West End was the most recent one.

    Replace EU Trader with new mechanic

    I'm sorry, but traders don't use shipbuilding materials for income anymore besides woods like teak and white oak. The question here is what was first, egg or chicken. The answer is simple. After Devs added trading goods, it allowed traders to start making millions of profit by selling them. Traders won't earn millions by selling fir logs, oak logs or stone blocks... Do you even have a clue how EU Trader works? Because it forces you to sail to other ports for resources. It seems like you have no idea how that mechanic works.

    Replace EU Trader with new mechanic

    Just like pirate nation had a description of outlaw battles and Mortimer Town, KPR and other capitals have BR set for PB... The testbed is not exactly the representation of what we will get on the live server. Explain what's good and nothing should change. Think from the perspective of the new player. On top of that, my suggestion does not change how the economy works.

    Please fix Naval Action Perspective

    Gotcha, so the issue is the size ratio of buildings and the ship itself, they do not match in relation to each others scale.
  22. Banished Privateer

    Please fix Naval Action Perspective

    Can you explain more in detail how do you want it to look like? Because I don't quite understand your proposed concept or fix. Two images that are meant to be self-explanatory but they're not.

    Snow BR

    By increasing Snow BR, you will make it much worse in RvR reasons. It's also frustrating while sailing in 1st rates that some solo 6th rate tags you. I know you can kill 1st rates with 6th rate, but it comes down many times to "screening" aka griefing.

    Caribbean Invasion News

    @Thonys Salt Level +9000. Did Brits make some announcement in Global or Forums that they are helping Swedes? I would like to remind you Thonys about LIONS fleet that sat next to Prussian fleet at George Town / Little Cayman and when we engaged Brits, the Dutch sitting next to us for 15-20 mins jumped against us in the battle. They were assumed friendly, but we had no hard feeling about that. Based on your "examination", the Dutch fleet was traitors and shall be never trusted (proven again). The deepest bone of their body or blah blah.

    Port Battle Screenshots (New BR)

    I figured to have the best feedback on new BR, we should have a topic with only PB screenshots. Post port name, BR, screenshot. Posts without screenshot will be reported and removed by Mods. Keep the topic clean from spam and offtopic. Only screenshots, feedback can be provided in here: Suggested format:
