    Guns Out of Action - WTH??

    I will play around with it and see how they adjust. You guys are killing me with all this good information. Where is the "Naval Action for Dummies" book?

    Guns Out of Action - WTH??

    Ahh! - Could be useful although last nite it did not seem that the good side was reloading any faster. Anyway, thank you again for the explanation!

    Guns Out of Action - WTH??

    Good info - thank you. I use the F1-F4 a lot but did not know about F5. Musta fat fingered that one. Why on earth would you not want to reload the guns? That function looks like a good candidate to move somewhere else. Fighting with half a ship was the toughest combat I have had so far. Keeping the good side facing 4 ships
  4. Got into a battle last nite - I was in a vic. Just started and a bad guy got a lucky shot that seemed to start a small fire below deck. Got that put out quickly but afterwards the guns on the entire right side of the ship stopped working. Where the number of guns loaded usually shows up there was an R. I tried regular repair and emergency repair but nothing fixed it. They were out for the entire battle. Was lucky to win this one - with just half a ship. Anyone know what might have happened? What does the R mean? Can it be fixed in combat?

    Shallows Even Shallower?

    Thonys - I wouldn't change a thing, except maybe adding a hi/low tide. My only gripe was I have been doing the same for some time now and all of a sudden I couldn't do it any more.

    Shallows Even Shallower?

    I hear ya. I'm a dev myself. I am familiar with that kind of pain. The response time to the problem was excellent.

    Shallows Even Shallower?

    Thank you for the update Wraith. And I did forget to mention I use that perk. Coincidentally I had to reduce the cargo by 20% to get the boat floating. I will wait for the fix.
  8. Title just about says it all. Been to several Bahamas ports tonite. Same ones I visit several times a week including last nite. When I load the ship with cargo and try to sail out the ship is bottomed out and will not go anywhere. I have to remove about 20% of the load before the ship will float and sail out. Like I said, this worked as recently as yesterday - same ports, same quantity of same cargo.

    Pheonix Module??

    Thanks Archaos - next time I need to burn one of my ships I'll remember that.

    Pheonix Module??

    FYI - the ship did not incinerate or blow up - the fire was more than usual but emergency repair seemed to put it out

    Pheonix Module??

    Maybe I can find a Santi or Ocean to ram....what a bummer. Still feeling stupid.

    Pheonix Module??

    Now whos feeling stupid! What a waste of a damn good ship! I thought maybe that added shooting hot balls at the bad guy. Any more gotchas like that out there?
  13. Almost too stupid to ask - the Pheonix module. That 10% fire is on the bad guy right? I ask only because the first combat I was in after adding that module MY ship catches fire - a bad one - against a trader brig. Coincidence?

    Long voyages

    I've seen that. But I used to be able to set a ship running south from La Navasse to South America (about 1.25 hours real time) and I could walk away and when I came back the ship was beached somewhere. Today I found it stopped & floating in open water.

    Long voyages

    On PvE. Is this happening to anyone else? I don't do this everyday so it would be hard to pin down when it started. Like most of us, I have to go on long sailing voyages for trading. Used to be I could set my ship in what I thought was the right direction and walk away from the game for a while. The ship would continue on until it either ran aground somewhere (hopefully near the destination) or I came back and began sailing again. This isn't happening for me now. Several times today on this type of journey I have come back to find the game shutdown. When I start it up again I find the ship bobbing in open water with all the sails up. No land anywhere so something else is stopping the ship. The first time I figured something burped so I put the ship back on its way. But now 2 more times after that the same thing. Different ships in different waters. Man I hope this long run ability isn't being taken away....
