    Wipe on release, 3-4 months?

    From the perspective of a player, I'd argue to keep ship XP (what would be changing to justify having everyone re-doing that?) and determining skill books based on whether drop rates change. If no changes to drop rates of books, keep as is, if there is a change, wipe to level the playing field for the hoped for new players with language localization.
  2. There already are diplomatic relations in game. You cannot attack those in your faction, and you can see what clan they are in. All others are "Enemy Player." This is ample and appropriate.

    Quaker Guns

    I personally have always been a fan of Quaker Guns. It doesn't have to confuse or slow down the best players in the game. There are other players out there.
  4. There is an odd sort of fatalism amongst the merchants that comes out in threads like this. I think concerns about griefing are valid here, and would encourage a longer invisible timer if a ship is lost. I also think merchants just like making noise about their safety - if they actually cared they would do something about it.

    Low FPS / Performance Issues

    Is there any odd chance you can disable the onboard video card in your BIOS without breaking anything?

    Low FPS / Performance Issues

    I split this off into its own designated thread so it can be addressed more appropriately.

    Flags Flags Flags

    Oh, and from the War of 1812 section, we cannot forget the Revenue Service, which saw a lot of victories in the beginnings of the US:

    For the United States, some other interesting flags would be those of the respective Naval Militias that had flags: http://www.loeser.us/flags/revolution.html New York Naval Ensign, 1775

    Holy Grail of Shipwrecks

    The question, of course, is who owns it? The finders aren't interested. Arguably it goes to Spain...?

    unable to login

    Apologies you're having some issues with the game client, and apologies it's taken me this long to help you out. Hethwill's post from the other day very cleanly describes my first recommendation, with pictures. So, assuming he doesn't mind, I'm going to blatantly plagiarize him. Please confirm this is the same on your own steam client Also please do Verify Integrity of Game Files Try again and report results. Thanks.

    World Cup (annual event)

    I could likely do some of the volunteer-work, particularly Sundays & Mondays.

    Fleet ships getting a free teleport.

    Only if there is an enemy still to fight. Some will try to work around that with false "enemies," but a balance must be struck. If a fleet ship escapes combat, it is presumed to have escaped.

    Fleet ships getting a free teleport.

    What if friendly fire were disabled AFTER "Battle Over" appeared? Seems it would resolve the issue without breaking anything else.

    Patch 24: Properly depowering your staysails

    I'd actually be in favor of not seeing the enemy ship stats at all. Just have to eyeball it with experience.

    Let's see how 400 players look in NA world

    There are no such things as "trash woods." Only woods that are not fully appreciated for their various characteristics.
