  2. Is anyone else playing against full size armies that have 95% three star units? I've won most of my battles and its the easier difficulty. playing as the union yet their armies are always huge, my troops can barely maintain two stars, those that have them anyway. Then some of my troops just turn and run after the first volley even against skirmishers??????? First image is my defensive troops behind cover running back home screaming like little girls even though they have 1000+ vs maybe two units of 500 at that time? Also my units do maybe 30 kills in a volley but would take super casualties no matter what. tried many things but ya idk what's going on. also second image troops on the right after taking a screenshot ran off screaming because omg 250 skirmishers deep in the woods.
  3. what happend here ?

  4. Kickstarter for a tutorial

    Let me start by saying I have helped countless players try and learn the game with most not lasting a week. Any new player I meet they get showered with ships and gold trying to help them up. Invite them to teamspeak and hand hold but one fishing hook can only catch one fish at a time. A big net of a tutorial will catch many more fish (players we need to test the game) It seems a tutorial is low on the list of priorities as is the constitution revamp so why not try and solve two birds with one kickstarter? Lets raise some money to have a solid tutorial that will benefit new players and veterans who wont have to hand hold new players as much.
  5. Здарова! В общем я если делаю себе цербер или другой корабль с экипажем доходящим до 200 человек и больше. Пытаюсь опробовать корабль... а он не плывёт, только крутится. Я обыскал все вики и всё перепроверил, скажет ли мне кто нибудь в чём причина? P.S Не нашёл темы где бы можно новичку задовать вопросы.
  6. Opening the forum on my chromebook I'm stuck in mobile version. I can't find link anywhere to go to desktop version. Can I put something behind the URL to get to the desktop version? Or something?
  7. Hi, Whenever I play Naval Action and I get into combat my computer randomly shuts down and restarts, this never happened to me before and I have been playing Naval Action for about 200 hours. I thought that it might have something to do with the system overheating, so I bought compressed air and cleaned it firmly. This did not seem to have worked for it is still happening.

  8. Community FAQ

    I took the liberty of compiling a few questions I have seen multiple people ask throughout the forums. This is not the official Game-Labs FAQ. Instead it is designed to try and answer some of the questions new members/testers may have about both the NA Forums and Naval Action itself. This thread will only cover basic questions. It will not cover questions about future development of the game, nor will it cover questions directed to the Developers. All questions about the current and future development projects of Naval Action, as well as less general questions about Naval Action's current state should be taken to the 'Questions to the Developers' thread linked below. Please follow their instructions on the correct way to ask them a question. QttD Thread: http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/558-questions-to-developers/ More Detailed Guide for Novices: http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/2533-a-short-guide-for-novices/ ~~Moderators feel free to add your own Q&A's. Users and Testers feel free to post questions you think should be added in the comment section below. If you have a general question that you want answered, post it below too.

Q) Am I allowed to record, stream, or otherwise distribute media footage of the game to the web? A) You are allowed to stream, screenshot and record Naval Action gameplay, so long as it's not showing off glaring bugs,and is posted with a clear explanation that Naval Action is in Alpha, and thus is not the final product.

A) You can report them in game by using the F11 key on your keyboard, or the 'Report Bug' button in the lower right corner of your Naval Action client. Q) What is the time period of Naval Action? A) 1680 to 1820, give or take five years. Ships outside of this time period are unacceptable for Naval Action. Q) I can't log into Naval Action. A) First, make sure the server is up. You can check that information here: http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/649-server-status-updates-servers-are-offline/ Q) Is repairing in 'Survival Mode' more effective than not? A) Your repairs will be faster if your crew is in Survival. The end result is fixed. Q) Will there be ship customization? A) Yes. Some ship customization is prototyped and will be tested after Sea Trials 2 or 3.
  9. SteamAPI_init() failed.

  10. Belle Poule or Frigate?

    I've just reached Master Commandant on the PVE server and have been looking to upgrade to a new ship from my Cerberus. I've had some leanings towards the Frigate for a while, but I've heard that many players think that the Belle Poule is an outright better ship, so I'm a bit split on what to do. Does anyone have any suggestions on which way I should go?
  11. Help Crafting Bellona

    Hello everyone, So looking into getting my hands on a Bellona. Unfortunately im am a long way off being able to craft one my self, level 29 crafting. So would like to make a proposition to any and all DUTCH Shipwright's capable of crafting her. My proposition is simple, in exchange for crafting one for me I would produce all the required materials and the gold coins for the crafting notes. I only have a level 2 shipyard so am unable to craft the HG notes. Looking at NA Craft I can see a Ballona takes 1465 Labour Hours to craft + 310 for each HG note, that I am unable to make, giving a total Labour Cost of 2705. So I am offering 3000 labour hours and all crafting material and gold coins in exchange. I am going to be available over the coming few weeks as I have a bit more time, So we can arrange times for when you need my services for labour hours ect. If anyone would be willing to help I would be very grateful and would appreciate a comment below or PM so that we can sort the details. Kind regards, Samuel van Heerden
  12. need help

    This isn't really for the forums but more the admins Let me start from the begining Biloxi is attcked by the US, 4 players, 3 trincs and a connie on the GB side US side, I don't remember XD (7ships connies and ingers) the battle started well and everyone was happy but when one of ours sunk the cockyness had become a little more noticable, earlier during the day one of the Americans had called my friend a "pussy" for running from a 4v1 fight. as the battle continued abuse began to get thrown at GB a player calling me a "Cheap roo Fcker" obviously denoting my Australian culture. I got some screenshots of this if any admins would like to see.
  13. 1.5x BR limit mechanics explanation?

    Can someone explain to me how these mechanics work? To my understanding it simply means that no one can join a battle after the initial tag that would imbalance the BR by a factor of more than 1.5x. And yet, a few minutes ago I was tagged by a belle poule in my surprise, and after the battle started (30 seconds in), a frigate joined the belle's side. If my understanding of the mechanics applied, this should have been impossible, because: Surprise - 140 BR Belle Poule - 180 BR Frigate - 170 BR 140 BR x 1.5 = 210 180+170=350 350>210 Therefore the frigate should be incapable of reinforcing the belle. But he was capable of reinforcing the belle. Why? http://imgur.com/yL2wkC4
  14. Historical expertise needed

    Greetings my friends. I'll keep this short. I am in the process of writing a novel set during the Hundred Years' War that was fought between England and France. The period of the war I am concentrating on is the period between 1337 and 1375. During that time there were many naval engagements. The battle of Sluys involved Hundreds of ships and the strategies used by both side are similar to those used at the battle of the Nile. Also the battle Les Espagols sur mer, aka The Battle of Winchelsea, which involved approximately 40-50 ships on each side showed that control of the sea has been an important war objective long before the 'age of sail'. I understand that the age of sail referred to on this forum is a time of sailing ships hundreds of years after the time frame of my novel, but I know that there are many clever people on the forum that have a vast knowledge of history. I need information on the ships used at the time, the cogs and hulks as they were known. Also the Castilian and Genoan galleys. I know abit but not enough for a good detailed novel. Could anyone tell me of crew numbers, speed, seaworthiness and perhaps the interiors too. I know 'cabins' weren't really a thing at the time, not how we know them to be. Of course I've looked up the information myself but I find a lot of what I read tends to be contradictory and quite vague. Thank you all.
  15. As i always see the same questions in the help chat, i thought posting a link would answer questions faster than retyping the same stuff over and over again, so here we go. Why can't i equip my guns. The numbers in brackets determinates the grade, the first bracket for cannons the second one for carronades. Why is my crew number red? Your ship is undercrewed, do missions and level up. Why can't i join a fight? Either it's a mission of another player or the fight is older than 5 minutes. Where can i get missions? In port, top left corner, Home/Equipment/Missions/... I can't find my mission. Your mission is named Admirality Order and the swords are higher above the sea, try to find this. Does trading give xp? No. What is contraband? Atm it just says you can attack ships of your own nation, without becoming a pirate. How does boarding work? Shoot chain into sails to slow them down, then grapes over the deck/railing to decrease crew, try to turn your enemy upwind until both ships are slower than 3,5kn, then press G and play boarding game. http://navalaction.wikia.com/wiki/Boarding Where can i buy repair kits? Home tab of port, right hand of selling ship button. What are ship letters for? They're just intel, some people post them in nations chat. Will my ship be lost if i get sunk? Your ship has a durability, that's its live count, loosing your ship reduces it by 1, if you reach 0 your ship will be lost. Can i restore durability? No, not yet. I can't sell my ship. Only dur 5 ships can be sold in the shop, but you can sell it in the home tab of the port to a NPC. I can't buy fleet ships. They're a help for beginners and can only be bought below rank 4. How do i use fleet ships? If you check the box of the given ship it'll automatically supports you in fight. How can i give orders to my fleet ships? Press M in battle. Where can i repair my fleet ships? Only in port on the fleet tab. What are the different item quality grades? grey = basic green = common blue = fine purple = mastercraft yellow = exceptional Can i use spyglass in the OW? No, not yet. Wiki: Ships http://navalaction.wikia.com/wiki/Ships Abbreviation: OW Open World Abbreviation: NPC / AI Non-Player Character / Artificial Intelligence (both terms mean game driven ships) Abbreviation: PotBS Pirates of the Burning Seas (once popular age of sails game) Quickstart-Guide: Do missions, buy better guns, stick with you basic cutter until rank 3, buy fleet ships which will help you in fights and get a Snow (or a Brig) at rank 3. Craft: Blueprint Tree http://www.navalactioncraft.com/blueprints Ship characteristics http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/7029-ships-inherent-characteristics/page-1 --- Help with this thread will be much appreciated, i'll take a look regularly and will add questions.
  16. Hey everyone, With the recent patch dropping allowing players to switch nation I am looking to do just that! I was sailing under the black flag but its just not as much fun as I though it might be. So im looking for a very kind soul to 'look after' my ship and gold while I reroll a new character? I am currently stationed in Conquibacao, a little way west of Willemstad (The Dutch Capitol). What im asking is if someone would very kindly hold my belongings while I delete my existing char, make a new one and sail over to Conquibacao from Willemstad. If someone with some decent forum rep of the Dutch nation would be willing to help I would be most grateful, Please message me so we can arrange a time, I should be about most of the weekend. Samuel
  17. Game Froze, Lost Ship

    I have the following issue: I was in a battle against a constitution with clan members, my game freezes, and I can't do anything except restart the PC, thus loosing the ship in the meanwhile. I still heard my clan members on TS3 nearly screaming for me to do something about my sinking ship ("press 8"..."survival mode!!!") but by the time I had restarted my PC and the game my ship was far gone. The game is in Alpha stage, bugs are to be expected, I understand. However considering that I am not at fault for the game freezing, as this never happens to my PC otherwise, I feel the punishment is a bit harsh. In the end my question is the following: Is it possible to restore the durability point to my Renommee? Server: PvP 3 Europe Character: Chiffre Time: ~0:30 GMT+1 Location: East of Coquibacoa

  20. Am entitled to redeemables :) ?

    Hi, I bought the in the morning ca. 10 am, 23. Jan. And stated playing the same day, on two different servers. The funny thing is some of my friends whom bought the game that day got two redeemable ships, and i did not. I was just wondering if the redeemables just were for some random people, or what. I'am just asking out of curiosity, because it would really be nice have those redeemables, like my other friends. Btw. I just love this game Kind regards.
  21. Is this game on Mac?

    Hi guys, I want to buy this game but I don't know if it's on mac. I know gaming on mac sucks, I am getting a PC later however I would like to start to play this game on release and not in a few months time. Thanks!
  22. I would love to know where the patches can be downloaded. The ones on the site either lead me to non working links or nothing happens. I don't even have the very first patch. Please help!!!
  23. I purchased your game, but...

    I recently purchased Naval Action no more than 15 minutes ago, however I noticed it said it was going to email the key to an email that I no longer use and have forgotten all of the login info for. I have all of the verification to ensure that I am the person who purchased the game on my PayPal account, such as the Transaction ID. I just need the key emailed or forwarded to my email that I am currently using. Thank you~
  24. The (Navy)Brig :-S

    Hello. I'm right now playing as a Navy Brig and after having a very hard time with the standard brig, I thought this one was going to be better but I was mistaken. This I am going to say it's true: I got more damage per battle with a Privateer than what I get with Brigs or Navy Brigs. My problem is not the firepower or the manueverability right now. My big problem that for this ship is that it pretty much is like a piece of paper. I can't stand seeing how in a single shot it's entire nose armor gets almst fully destroyed and almost the same for port or starboard, and rear. Two shots and it's done even when being shot by not that big ships, but if it gets shot by a constitution its done almost in the first set of shots. So, I cannot even approach ships without gettign destroyed before I can do a decent ammount of damage, and somehow in pve ships will manage to hit you without ranging shots in the first try. So yes, i'm despeprate with this ship, cause I thought It was going to be better and more resistant but no it is not and I have a long way to the snow.
  25. Ok this sucks I updated the game with the patch and tried to log in. The game immediately asked for my name (I usually just logged in through steam and never had this line pop up before). I thought "oh cool, I can finally changed my name like I read you could on a forum post." My steam name is Smackcrack4 and that's what it was in game as well since steam login. When I bought the game, I made my forum name to be what you see here. So I entered the name "Halt Tranty" and got in the game. And that's where I noticed that my entire progress through the ships was gone, it was like I'd never played the game before. So please developpers, check your logs and see where "Smackcrack4" was and either put my name back as that or transfer my progress to "Halt Tranty". I'm not going to grind 50 hours or so to get back to the Trinc. Please fix this as soon as possible, and let me know if I need to do something on my end. Thanks in advance. P.S: I'm pretty sure it's my fault for not putting my steam name in, but in case it's a bug, you have information on it now. My face right now:
