  1. Was removing ships from a fleet today and must have accidentally dismissed one of them instead of 'sending to docks. (luckily it was only a tlynx) You have to do this a lot if you are trading/hauling and want to teleport, but people will naturally just hit confirm after a while without reading, and as the buttons are a bit clunky atm this can easily lead to mistakes. Would be helpful if the confirmation window had the word 'dismiss' in red text, so as to warn the player they are deleting the ship? AND/OR with the new AI make it very obvious that the ship is being deleted. Even better, I was always taught it was bad interface design to give choices such as 'yes/no' or 'confirm/cancel' when offering a choice - (in this case) send to docks/cancel and dismiss/cancel would be better choices as they inform the user what they are doing without forcing them to read the text, which nearly everyone stops doing once they have read it before.
  2. I know that cannon loadout, mods, and build quality (color) are not reflected in your AI fleet ships' combat capabilities but what about wood choice and regional trim?

    A way to increase versatility of AI fleet

    AI fleet members are necessary for trading, but have limited utility in combat. I have two ideas regarding more versatile commands. 1. A command for AI fleet members to loot Since a major source of permanent upgrades (and the only source for some) is looting ships, it would be a fantastic addition to command AI fleet members to loot wrecks. Implementation could be simple, as in you tell an AI to loot a specific wreck, and he's programmed to approach and then some mechanic exists for looting. 2. A general "move to here" set of commands. There's lots of situations where you'd like an AI to perform an action, but have a preference of the route he takes to do so. As in you can tell him to flee, but he just automatically goes to his fastest point of sail, even if that's straight into a group of AI. We should be able to set waypoints that end on the desired action. Combining with my first suggestion, tell him to move to point x before moving to loot a wreck at point y.

    Lost Fleet Ships

    So I was in a battle against an ai Bellona in my Aggy with my usual fleet of an Endy and Surprise. Long story short, by the end of the battle, both were the usual AI and were pressed up against the shore. The Surprise was even bouncing up and down. After leaving the battle, I went back to port. To my horror and surprise, my Endemyon was not in my fleet at the port. So I lost my ship. The ships had almost full health at the end of the battle as I was looking at it to laugh at the beaching, so I did not lose it by it sinking. And it was not beached as much as the Surprise, who came with me. She was a great ship and I am worried that happened as it happened to a Belle Poule of mine earlier. I assumed she was sinking that time, but now I am skeptical. I hope this can be resolved soon before I or other players lose perfectly fine fleet ships!

    Fleet ships and carpenters

    Would installing a carpenter upgrade in a fleeted ship make a difference? Will it actually self repair while in battle?

    'Fleet Missions'

    Hello Captains, So I know you can 'Join' missions of your friends if you are in a group, but what about Missions that are designed for Groups? So perhaps it would work a little something like this... To be able to take a 'Group' Mission you would need to have you group/fleet formed, then as a group you would have a Fleet Strength based on your overall BR, the mission would then be set in proportion to you fleets BR. The mission would also become available to take from the Missions tab in towns, and the leader of the group would need take the mission on behalf of the group. At the moment you can just group up, take 3, 4, 5, 6+ missions or whatever and do them but they are only designed for a single Captain. So the missions are relatively straight forward, easy, boring and well, a grind... (I hate that word) So with this concept you would be fighting a number of ships in relative proportion to your own fleet and everyone would prosper! (and hopefully lead to a more enjoyable experience) I'm certain most players would be happy to form up a group like this and get that 'Fleet' Experience. It would also lead nicely to helping players towards PVP and fleet battles, as clans and players in general can use it to practice and learn the differences between fleet battles and single captain instances. Not sure if this has been mentioned before, So if it has apologies, im not trying to steal anyone's idea but its certainly a concept worth talking about. Thoughts please Captains, Samuel

    Sell Fleet Ships in Port

    Currently, you have to move a ship from fleet to dock to sell it, even just to sell to AI. This is a problem with the limited number of available dock space. If your five slots are used, when you cap a ship on PvE, your only realistic options are to sink it or take to port and sell one of your other ships. Recommend adding an option to the fleet menu in-port to allow selling a ship to AI, rather than just Dock or Dismiss.

    Fleet ship dilemma

    I captured a t brig and added it to my fleet, I moved half my basic cutter crew to it and sailed to Savannah with my prize. Once there, I was unable to split the fleet, it said I could not do it because I did not have an outpost there. I could not leave port because the basic cutter requires 28 min crew to sail and the t brig 18 for a total 46. My max allowed crew at my rank is 40. Trying to leave the port in a different b cutter would cause the loss of the fleet, don't care about the original b cutter, but did not want to lose the t brig. Furthermore, I could not sell the t brig if I couldn't sail it out of Savannah because I was not allowed to split the fleet in a port where I did not have an OP. The only thing I could do was to dismiss the t brig and not make any gold out of it. I could sell the loot in Savannah, or transfer it to the port warehouse, then to the b cutter hold to transport it to another port for a better price. So, my questions are: 1- Is there any reason/rationale for making this whole operation this complicated? 2- Why can't we separate fleet ships and sell them individually at any port regardless of having an OP or not?

    Trading and protection

    I am a trader and I love this game. My ships have been ganked many times with only one option for me. Having a trade ship with cannons is just not logical. Why fight a battle way out of your league with your precious cargo at stake?! I like the naval battle aspect too, now here comes my question: Is it possible to have your trade ship flee the scene and than take over your battle ship and fight a spectacular fight to show that traders are no doormats? I mean, that your trade ship is in the clear and and whether you win or lose the battle, you can continue your trade after the battle. Follow-up question is can you switch controls in mid fight when you have too? Having a friend to protect you always is not doable unless that friend is your slave and has nothing else to do
  12. The fleet perks to be able to hold more ships in your fleet is redundant. Most players will have at least 1 fleet perk and it taking up perk slots. I suggest the complete removal of fleet perks and you have the ability to hold the number of ships in your fleet, depending on the rank you are. Or give 1 fleet slot for free and give the player the ability to decide if they want to have 1 extra fleet perk or not.

  14. Ciao a tutti, essendo un niubbone avrei 2 semplici domande sulla flotta: 1 - E' normale che se un player ti attacca mentre sei in Open World la tua flotta in battaglia nn c'è? Esempio, ieri un maledetto inglese P mi ha attaccato mentre comandavo una privateer e come flotta una Linx, ma in battaglia la mia cara Linx nn c'era, cosa fastidiosa perchè una parte della Crew era stata messa li sopra, quindi avevo in pratica una Privateer senza nemmeno l'equipaggio al completo... 2 - Posso caricare merci su di una nave che ho nella mia Flotta? Per esempio, carico una nave da guerra più che posso, ma mi faccio seguire da un'altra nave da trasporto con altre merci sopra. Grazie mille, scusate ancora per le domande che per i più possono sembrare cose ovvie

    "Demast" command to AI fleet

    If you issue the Demast command to your AI fleet, is he chaining the sails or going in close trying to kill the mast with ball shot?
  17. I'd like to see a list of active clans on the PvP2 server. The intent is to show activity on the PvP2 server in hopes of preventing the "possible" server merge. This is also an attempt to provide new players direct links to clan recruitment pages. Hopefully, this forum will create server and nation specific boards in the near future. Until then, I thought I'd make this nation categorized list. Props to www.navalactioncraft.com for their map work and getting all the ports updated.

  18. Hey there! Today I found out, the hard way, that when you leave battle without your fleet your fleet SINKS. I 'only' had a precious rattlesnake in my fleet after capturing a players trader and taking command of it, and the rattlesnake is my main and favorite ship, but if people have way bigger ships in their fleet this could be a problem. I strongly suggest there should be a warning before leaving the battle about your fleet getting destroyed if you don't wait for them. Or just remove the feature, letting the AI ships fight on (so the player can spectate)- Thanks, Lz

    Adding Ships to Fleet

    To avoid losing yet another trader-load of hard-earned goodies to worthless pirate scum, I want to add a Niagara to my fleet. However, each time I try I get the message must that I must remove all upgrades and items from hold. Problem is, there is absolutely nothing in the hold and no upgrades at all (I've even changed the guns back to the basic 9 pounders). What am I missing?
  20. Here are some suggestions that in my opinion could improve game play in some areas. At least, if technically possible some of these should be tested/assessed. SHIP NON-PERMANENT UPGRADES _______________________________ The easy way to address the non permanent upgrades would be to look at reality. If I have 2 ships, I most likely will have a set a amenities in each and they will not appear at the docks magically for availability in an upgrade window before I set sail. It's a convenience that is not possible in the real world unless the ships are moored next to each other. You can't just move all upgrades out of a boat in one place, teleport 400 miles away and voila! all the upgrades are still here ready to be used in another boat. Granted the teleportation is needed to help game play otherwise we would all get old and senile traveling for days between areas on the map. (reduce the map so everything can happen in real time?). In short, make the non permanent upgrade that are in one boat, only transferable to another boat in the same port. If you want to move them to another port they have to travel by boat in the hold or be sent by delivery system in free towns. BATTLES WITH ONE DURABILITY SHIPS _________________________________ The ideas below pertain only to battle end game and not to boarding mechanics. At this time boarding is the only way to capture a ship in PVP. I would propose an additional way to capture a ship during battle: I again take inspiration from real world for guidance. I don't think that captains would let ships sink so easily whether on the defending or attacking side. The loss of life alone, including their own would be enough incentive for the losing captain to make an effort toward the survival of the ship. For the winner, the prize is one of the incentives for getting in the fight. The ship can be taken and added to your own war effort, the crew taken as press gang, etc... Also I don't think that wooden ships sank that easily as they do in the game. I understand that we need to have a clear "win" or "loose" status for game play clarity. However this create a loss of opportunity in other areas. Once the majority of the crew has been dedicated to keeping the boat afloat and can no longer fight... Once the pumps can't overcome the water coming in and repair kits have been used... Once the main mast is down after repair kit has been used... (insert more instances of unrecoverable loss here) I would think it's time to cry uncle and maybe, once this level of damage is achieved (when water line is high enough that cannons are inoperable for instance but boat is still afloat?), the white flag should come up automatically in the game, declaring a "stranded status" as the damaged ship is no longer maneuverable, no longer in the fight, and is not as much to be boarded as it is to be rescued. At this point the winning side would have a certain time limit to board the ship before it sinks, assign crew to it, use repair kits of its own to prevent it from sinking, etc... If they fail to get to the stranded boat in time, it is doomed and sinks with all hands. The losing captains loses boat, crew and officer. If they get to it in time, on the losing side, part of automating this end game process gives the vanquished captain the choice to surrender this one durability boat as well as surrender his crew to replace the lost crew of the winning captain in exchange for keeping the life of his officer. If he refuses he basically refuses to be rescued and sinks with all hands, looses the boat, crew and one officer's life. So choices, are surrender and you keep your officer's life or sink and loose all but deny the winner from taking the boat and crew. This is not a boarding battle, it is essentially a rescue. This potentially would make ships themselves stay longer in the game and change hands in a more diversified way as battles go on. Ship would still sink regularly when they are not salvaged in time or when captains refuse to surrender. You might loose you ship and capture it back at a later date which is an incentive to not let it sink in the first place. Some ships might become famous for having been captured many times and survive many battles which brings up the next topic: SHIP PAINT AND CUSTOM NAME __________________________ Once ships have more chances to survive battles and becoming famous it would be nice to give them personality by allowing custom ship names that stay with the boat once christened as well as making custom paint readily available at ports to give them distinctive character. Paint is not something special in the world of ships. Maybe gold leafing or special custom figureheads could be rare items but not paint. Making "rare" ships has also the unwelcome side effect of captains avoiding combat to preserve the custom paint of their "special" ship. This behavior alone degrades the quality of PVP on the server. DEALING WITH CAPTURED SHIPS ___________________________ As much as I like to teleport a captured ship it should not be possible to cross the entire map at the click of a button. You capture a ship, you deal with it. When a ship is captured, the victorious captain must assign crew to it after emergency repairs have allowed the ship to stay afloat, then it can be added to the FLEET and sailed back by the regular open world sea ways. If the captain already has a full fleet (2 slots as of now) provision should be made in the game mechanics for towing the captured ship without fully crewing it and of course taxing the open world speed accordingly. ​There should also be an option in the event of multiple ships captured, to allow the victorious captain to either to pass the control of the captured ship to a clan's mate or group mate. __________________________________________ Thanks for reading this far, please critique, comment, improve etc... -T

    Suggestion: Player AI Traders

    Hey! At present, we have random AI traders and fleets sailing around, with no real purpose other than floating targets. I'd like to suggest that rather than having random fleets and traders, or perhaps in tandem with those, the fleets sailing around are actually carrying items for the nation- If a player collects from his/her resource buildings in a given location, but is unable/unwilling to sail that cargo to it's destination themselves, they could hire AI traders to make the sail for them; like deliveries to/from free ports currently; in the open world, able to be attacked by players of another nation. This would mean that attacking enemy traders on the open water would serve a real, tangible purpose, as it would be likely that those traders are carrying materials essential to the economy of your enemy. Perhaps if a player pays more for the contracted ship (or based on the value of the cargo?), the number of escort ships increases, meaning that taking a more valuable prize would take more coordination between the individuals making the attack. Thoughts?

    Fleet Orders Boarding issues

    hi.. When i was in fleet order 200 XP level with my team on PVP1, I was boarded by an IA Santisima in 5 KN speed! After that, another mate was aborded too, in 7 KN speed ! I've lost my victory with an "grenade attack" on one shot. Goodbye my Gold ship, and my 6 Gold Upgrades. Boarding it's a good part of the game, but not like this.. I am just disgusted for this boarding because high speed of boarding.. 5 KN and more (don't remember the exact figure..) i've done a F11 when it's arrived. After that, my friends didn't manage to board while they were only at 1.5 KN.. This battle was really cheated... (really sorry for my english.. )
  23. These men are death incarnate. They are the tendrils of evil and the arms of chaos. If you play dice with the devil and lose, it is they he calls upon to collect what he is due. Captain! Arms of Chaos is a group of free men who refuse to bare the crushing obligations of authority, law, and civil obedience. We are not bound by the words of kings, men who would send a navy to fight in their place. Authority, respect, and loyalty are things to be earned, not blindly bestowed by rank, wealth, or social status. A man may only rule another man if the latter permits him. This mindset has been the cornerstone of AoC membership since the group was first founded. As free men residing on the very fringe of modern society, we still believe in a man's authority over his own person! No one ruler or board of rulers should have equal or greater power over a man or group of men than they themselves do. The AoC Court consists of eight seated captains who act as spokesmen for the AoC. If nations or fleets wish to engage the entire AoC in 'civil' negotiations they may do so through the Court. Seated captains have no more power, influence or sway over the AoC than a common member, and common members reserve the right to treat seated captains as they would any other equal. Seats do come with a few perks however... Each seat has a unique banner which serves as the seated captain's personal pennant in-game. (When custom pennants are added). and Each seat comes with certain bragging rights. Any common member may challenge a seated captain for his place in the Court. Once the seated captain has been made aware of the challenge he reserves the right to choose the class of ship the duel is to be fought in. If the defending captain loses the duel he gives up his seat and pennant to the challenger. The first eight Captains to join AoC will automatically be granted a seat in the Court. Challenging seated captains may begin immediately upon entry into AoC. The Black Mongoose is a forum dedicated to the under-class of Naval Action. Pirates, beggars, thieves, and black hearted privateers welcome. No Gurlz Navy Allowed!

    Far Distant Fleet Orders

    I'm a Pirate, Demon rank, with a Constitution. I'm located in Le Moule. I selected Fleet orders and they come up for Charleston and Beaufort, a 5 day sail away. I logged off and logged back on, repeated, through all the ranks. Ended up with the same results.
  25. I have a Basic Cutter and want to expand my cargo capacity. Currently, I am a Midshipman able to sail a Cutter and Lynx level. If I buy or lease another Cutter or Lynx, will they sail with me and increase my cargo capacity? Will I see myself in OW as one ship or two? How long will a leased ship stay with me before the lease "expires?" ~ H. Knox ~
