    Could we please have the option to change the UI between "Legacy UI" and "New UI" ?

    I also dislike the fact that you have to open many different windows which are all opaque and huge and obscure your view .. before you opened the "hold" and could see your ship status , the hold , your upgrades and repair/manage crew . Why change something from very easy and practical for something very slightly better-looking and impractical PLS don't take the Microsoft route

    What i really dislike is the big and pointless , opaque "picture" of a ship when you click on a fleet in OW .. it blocks a quarter (on low res) of my screen and being opaque i can't see anything behind it .. i would much prefer the old one which was semi-transparent Like others have said FPS and online needs to be moved to the top as it were And to be honest i liked the old hold management tooltip much better .. altho the new one looks prettier the old one was far more practical and user-friendly The compas is ok .. i had an issue with the old one coz the compass itself was quite large but the ship model inside it was way to small and i couldn't accurately see my heading as the nose of the little ship was too far away from the compass edge (i have a problem seeing when things are parallel or not)

    Wrong ships lost on OP change

    Yes i ended up with 0 ships I can't be 100% sure about the location of all my 20 ships but i only touched 3 outposts and i think i had some rapid response ships scattered around in other ops In any case just like the post by rufus said there is definetly a bug involved so just as a warning to everybody : WARNING : If you BUY a ship in a port that you DON'T have an outpost , DO NOT BUILD AN OUTPOST there . Make sure you SELECT the ship BEFORE building an outpost , otherwise you will LOSE THE SHIP THAT YOU JUST BOUGHT pls tell this to other players so they don't buy some gold ship and suddenly deside they need an outpost there only to lose the expensive ship

    All Ships Gone !!

    Ok .. new test done You come in a port you DON"T have an outpost at, sell your crappy trader brig you just captrued, deside to check the docks for a new ship to buy and see this really really nice purple surprise for only 700k and decide to buy it .. now you decide you need an outpost at this port for whatever reason coz you want to TP somewhere else maybe urgently so you build the outpost without selecting the ship first BOOM you just lost your new ship just because you BUILT an outpost without selecting it.. WTF.. this doesn't make sense at all but this is what happens and i'm pretty sure it's a bug coz destruction of outpost was not involved in this only building

    and yeah i can understand losing my stuff if i close the port remotely while i'm miles away from it but when i'm sitting at the harbor why would i let anyone take away my ships? i don't get let's suppose you sail to a port you don't have an outpost at .. you sell your ship and buy another .. when you buy a ship it's NOT selected so you build an outpost before selecting the ship .. would that make your ship vanish? it shouldn't and it's no different from destroying and rebuilding an outpost while you're in that port coz it's not the act of destroying the outpost that makes the ships vanish it's the act of BUILDING the outpost in a port you already have ships at that makes them vanish for some reason and that's what makes me think it's a bug also ppl do that kind of stuff by accident in a hurry you can close the wrong outpost specially when they have similar names and the bar separating them is not that big.. shouldn't lose your ships if you haven't left the port i think also .. in this situation it would make sense to lose the stuff in the warehouse coz you've no longer have a building to store them at but ships? ships are not stored in a personal area .. it's a public dock and maybe you pay a fee to keep your ship docked but it's not a building why would you lose stuff when you BUILD an outpost instead of deleting it?

    no i don't expect to lose my stuff if i'm sitting at the port and don't leave it be it ships or resources and i'm pretty sure i did it post-wipe without losing anything a few times specially in the beginning with the lack of coal situation and then when they added coal in belize

    yeah i know that but i mean without leaving the port.. he left port AFTER rebuilding the outpost so between destroying and rebuilding the outpost he did not leave port it's just a matter of being in the port which is say in the 8th outpost slot .. closing it and oppening it in the 2nd slot which is empty i don't think that should make you lose your ships since you never left that port

    last time i did it i didn't lose anything.. so you're telling me they've changed that without telling us anything and i've just lost 20 ships some of which are irreplacable?

    WARNING TO ALL PLAYERS A clanmate just done some tests and there is a bug. Closing the outpost does not lose the ships but for some reason building the outpost again causes the ships to be lost Sometimes if you in port with your ships close outpost rebuild it you can still see all your ships however if you teleport out and back into that port even tho you've rebuilt the outpost before TPing out you will see the ships dissapear for some reason.. so sometimes the vanish just as you rebuilt the outpost and other times only when you rebuilt and TP out/back in

    not if you sit in that port done it already many many times.. you can close it and open it again still doesn't explain why all my stuff is still there except the ships

    All Ships Gone !!

    Hi So i was swapping my outposts location on the list to have the important ones on top everything was going fine and when i finished the screen suddenly refreshes and all my ships have dissipated from everywhere ! Not a single ship in any of my outposts even the ones that i didn't touch I tried buying a basic cutter to see if it will show up and it did but nothing else did anywhere .. tried leaving port and entering again restarting game and PC but nothing helps .. all my ships are gone Has anyone encountered this before and how to fix it? PS : All the stuff in my warehouse is still there so it's not a matter of losing of ships coz of closing outpost (i've done it before many times) since all my materials/resources/repairs are still there and i had never left port

    Flipped over and sunk after being rammed

    Hi So i was attacking a fleet to get my slots open on the inger .. half way in the battle i get the Notes on Best Rudder Angles and then i'm rammed by a backwards sailing constitution which then throws me ship in the air few hundred meters and i land upside-down losing the notes and everything i had onboard I managed to snap a few screenshots while i was falling The ship was cab/sab very agile inger with no significant mods on it . But could i get compensation for the notes pls? I've already done the F11 bug report shortly after dying thanks
