  1. Hey, Can you move an account to a different steam account? I'm shutting down reserving the email I use for steam for work only and want to start a new steam account with proper email solely for game services. I don't wanna lose all my assets in game and want to know if I can move the account?

  5. NAVAL ACTION ist eines der seltenen Spiele mit sehr hoher "Immersion" (wie übersetzt man das am besten?) für mich - es bietet mir eine Welt, in die ich voll und ganz eintauchen kann und in der ich viele interessante Mitspieler finde - als Freunde oder als Gegner. Nun möchte ich NAVAL ACTION gerne ein dickes "Like" geben auf STEAM, oder noch besser: ein REVIEW. Wie muß ich das machen?

    The Steam Awards - Nomination

    First off i'm not telling you to vote or how to vote as this is completely voluntary. I am only wishing to act as an advocate to the game in hopes to see our game population increase. Steam is hosting their annual "The Steam Awards" to be decided this December and there are multiple game categories. http://store.steampowered.com/SteamAwardNominations/ I felt that this is a way that we, the Naval Action community could drum up some support to a game we all enjoy. Visit a game’s store page to nominate it for an award. The “Test of Time” Award This award is for the game that is just as good today as the day you first played it. Newer games may come out, but it doesn’t matter… you’ll always come back to play this one. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “I'm Not Crying, There's Something In My Eye” Award Games are fun. But sometimes games become more than that, and touch you in a way you weren’t expecting. This award celebrates the game that blindsided you emotionally. You weren’t expecting to cry. It wasn’t in the plan. But it happened none the less. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “Just 5 More Minutes” Award You have an early day tomorrow. You need to get some sleep, so you’re just going finish one more thing before you decide to tuck in for the night. Just one more. Wait, one more. What’s that you say? It’s 2:30 AM? This award is for the game that keeps you playing late. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!” Award Some games melt your face. Maybe it was a crazy plot twist. Maybe you just got your wisdom teeth removed. Either way, this game BLOWS YOUR MIND. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “Villain Most In Need Of A Hug” Award Some people just need a hug. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “Game Within A Game” Award Kinder Eggs. Peanut Butter Cups. Jelly Donuts. All great things stuffed with other great things. Like a mighty turducken, this award celebrates the best mini game hidden within another game. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won An Award” Award This title didn’t have a huge marketing machine behind it, but you found it and loved it. Then you told your friends about it. And they loved it. And now that little game that could is about to win an award… but always remember: you totally found it first. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “Best Use Of A Farm Animal” Award Animals are rad and almost any game is better for including them. However this game used a farm animal in the best way possible. Find a game to nominate in this category: Search in the Store The “We Didn’t Think Of Everything” Award (*name pending Selection Committee Decision) There are as many great ideas for awards as there are great games to play. And so we turn to the Steam Awards Selection Committee to come up with their own category and nominee. Senior members of the Selection Committee will review the write-in entries and create an entirely new category based on the feedback provided.

    SteamAPI_init() failed.

    Hi there, so I'm getting this error when I try to connect to the server(SteamAPI_init() failed.), don't know why it's coming up (something to do with steams API?) anyway, help is appreciated, can't get into the game otherwise.

    Award for accomplishments

    Just a thought; what about badges or awards in steam for accomplishing certain challenges like, 10% of map discovered, 25% map discovered, etc; completing 10 battles won, 20 battles, 100 battles, etc; crafting level 20, 30, 40, and Gold badge for 50. Maybe this could be implemented by the characters name or title. Master Crafter Level-50. Contact badge, visited 2,3.4 other nation towns. Distance award for shipping or travelling distances. I could go on but these award/badges are cool and are implemented in other Steam/valve games.

    New Captains - Read This First

    Remember, this is not a tutorial, but just a little compilation of the forum threads to help you make your 1st steps in the game. This topic was initially written for Sea Trials, so may contain some obsolete info, links or screenshots. I will resume working on this post soon... Before you make your order... - Create a Steam account if you don't have one already. Install Steam on your PC. The game is only available through it. - It wouldn't hurt to make sure your video card fully supports DirectX 11. Check it on your card's manufacturer site. Briefly – it should be higher then NVIDIA 400 or AMD 5000. A tip from Prater: Just because dxdiag says you have directx11 doesn't mean your card supports it. Dx11 can be installed on Windows even though the video card doesn't support it, so instead of checking dxdiag you need to check the manufacture specs on your card. This is mostly an issue with older cards, especially integrated chips (mostly concerns laptops). If you have an integrated chip, here is a list of Intel chips. Basically, in this list anything in the 7th generation should work with Naval Action. Those before the 7th will NOT and there is nothing that can be done about it except get a new computer or if you have a desktop computer get a video card. A list of AMD chips is here. You can also take a look at this forum thread. Purchase: The game is available on Steam. And register on the forum if you haven't already Installation and activation: Please see this thread for the detailed instructions. Login: Currently you can login only with your Steam account, but you can give name to your character and choose nationality. You can have only 1 character per Steam account. If you cannot login (getting Error message), please check here first. Welcome to the game! And there you are, at the capital of your nation. There is a chat screen on your low left corner. It has many cool options. Note the tags Global, your nation (Neutral on this screenshot) and Help. Mouse click there and type if you need an advice or just want to say hi to the world Click + if you're missing some tabs. You can also have a private chat with your friends, but first you need to find and add them to your friend-list. Then right-click on your friend's name in the list to see the options as shown below. Also if you right click on any player's name you'll see a menu which gives you a bunch of options. For example, use Copy if someone posted a web link you need. Note that Trade works only if you and your partner are at the same town. On the "town" menu, you can also buy or sell ships, equipment and other stuff, check your progress (xp), buy repair kits, upgrade your ship with various modules, install new cannons, move stuff from Hold to Warehouse, hire NPC to sail with you (for low rank players only), take missions (quests) etc. "Outpost" button lets you buy a slot and then open an outpost, which gives you a warehouse and 5 "docks" (slots) for ships. At the very beginning you only have an outpost at your capital. You can buy new outposts at other towns. Keep in mind that every outpost will be more expensive then the previous one you've bought. Right now you can also teleport to any one of your outposts, but it has 4 hours cooldown. Teleporting to outposts is possible from town (not at sea) and only for the character (no ship). Teleporting to the capital works from the sea and in that case includes your ship too. Note that cannons have Class and Caliber, those numbers on your equipment screen stand for Class. For example, [7-9] means you can install either long or medium cannons of class 9, 8 or 7, the caliber doesn't matter. Numbers after / are for carronades' class ([7-8] on my screenshot). Remember, you can buy any ship if you have enough money, but if your rank is too low - you will not be able to hire full crew. Less people you have - more time you need to reload cannons, turn yards etc. Here is the thread about ranks. And another one. (to be continued) Sailing: Ready? Hit Sail and you will see your ship in the open world. Now you're free to do anything you want. Look at the map (or hit M ingame) and travel, trade, find other players and go PvP, chase some NPC and fight (click on the ship to see what nation ant type she is. Currently you're ok to attack ships of any nation besides your own. And if you see that red line "Contraband goods found", you're ok to attack even NPC of your nation). If you attack any other ship of your nation you'll become a pirate (currently no way to "undo" it, so beware). All nations are at war right now, so you can only use ports of your own nation and neutrals. Use W, A, S, D to control your ship's speed and direction. To see your stats and to use repair at sea, click the stats button in your top left corner (it looks like 3 horizontal bars). Hit REPAIR and the game will use your repair kits if you have any and if you ship needs to be repaired. You can always buy more repair kits at any town. Missions: Currently the only "quest" you can do is "search and destroy". Click "missions" at any town, and you will be able to chose from the list. You can accept up to 3 missions at once (from the same town or different ones, it doesn't matter). Missions will give you some extra money and XP, on top of what you would earn from the regular battle vs NPC. Hit M to open your map and see your missions location (crossed swords symbol). Now you have to sail and found it at the sea. Sometimes it can be confusing if several symbols are close to each other. Yours will be slightly higher in the air. And if you click on it you would see "Admiralty Order. Event is too far" or this tab as you sail close enough: Battle sailing and chat: Chat window is in your low-left corner. First hit Enter, then type, then press Enter again to send. Hit Enter and then Tab if you need to switch from Team chat (blue) to All (white) and back. To see the main chat window (your national, clan etc) - hold CTRL and then click on the tiny "menu" symbol on the right of "Enter text..." frame. You can also see your speed here (it was 9.3 knots for me when I took this screenshot) and some stats of your ship. To change your speed use W and S, note how "Full" and 100% changes to "Half" and 50% and so on. Also you can hit B for "battle sails". T controls staysails. In case it doesn't work correctly, hit W or S to reset them. The other way to handle your speed and turning is to turn your yards manually. Hold Q or E for forward mast, Z or C for rear mast(s) and see how it all works. A and D turn your ship's rudder. Double tap A or D for permanent left of right rudder setting, tap once the opposite way from locked left or right and it will centre again. Hold A or D down to turn rudder temporarily. Let go and it will center again. F will turn on the Skipper Auto mode (will turn your yards to keep maximum speed for your ship... which is not what you always need ) Shooting: There are different shots that are used by your cannons (1,2,3 keys to pick). Balls are used to punch holes in a ship’s hull and to shoot down masts. Chain is for tearing holes in sails to slow down your enemy. Grape is effective against crew. In the middle of your screen you will see your cannons' status. Let's take a look. Right now I have 2 cannons loaded with balls on "back" of my ship and 9 on the right. My left cannons are still loading and cannot shoot yet. To enter aiming mode, right click when looking in the direction you want to fire. To fire - space-bar for a single ranging shot, or left mouse button to fire a whole broadside. To fire only one deck you can lock others by hitting F1, F2, F3, F4 (when in aiming mode). Another way is to fire "as is", without aiming mode - that would be [ and ] Note that you have 3 different fire modes controlled by V - random, rolling front and rolling back. Also R allows you to "lock sector". K is for mortar "mode" on Mortar Brig. SHIFT pulls up the scope. You can zoom in using mouse wheel. Remember, even if you loose the battle you receive experience points, based on your shooting. Damage and Repair: Here is the diagram located in the top left corner of your screen: 4 bars show your ships armor. If you look carefully you will see that they are surrounded by an outline of a ship, facing right. As you can see, my ship has badly damaged stern (a bar disappeared there) and took some other damage. Numbers indicate how many leaks I have above and below the waterline on each side. Red 1 below the line means 1 leak under the waterline. Also my pump is somewhat damaged (it is yellow. Red means "broken"). That means I'd better use repair (first you need to buy them at the town). Press 5 and select which part needs to be repaired. Also there is a Survival mode (8) used to pump out water from ship's hull (see your low-left corner), repair leaks and extinguish fire. Keep in mind that Survival mode slows down your other tasks (Gunnery mode (7) makes reloading faster, Sailing mode (6) adds a bit to your ship's speed and maneuverability). Here is the detailed explanation of how the crew "mods" work. Boarding: Let's capture that ship! Hit "9" and get your crew ready (note that it slows down your cannons reloading and other tasks). Read this BOARDING GUIDE for detailed explanation. Remember, both ships need to slow down (5kn or less). Look for "boarding possible" indicator and hit G. If you win, you can hit X and take command of the ship. No matter if you did it or did not hit X, when you leave the battle you'll need to choose what to do with your new ship (right click on it) - take command, send to your outpost or sink (admiralty doesn't work yet). If you send it to your outpost, you'll be able to sell it later when you arrive to that town. If you see some loot - drag it to your Hold. Crafting: Each player has "labor hours" which are used to craft materials (and ships). You receive 41 labor hours per real hour (984 lh per 24 real hours). It doesn't matter if you're online or offline. Maximal amount of your lh is 1000 + (20 x your craft level). You receive "crafting XP" when you craft materials and ships, and gradually level up, which allows you to build better quality (basic- common-fine-mastercraft-exceptional) or higher ranked ships and modules. Higher quality ships have more slots for modules, but the final amount of them varies and does NOT depend on a crafter (random). Also the crafter cannot choose the 2nd trim of the ship (currently speed or stiffness), it's a random too: Here is the explanation about trims and wood. To craft ships you first need to build a shipyard at a town where you already have an outpost (and upgrade the shipyard to lvl 2 or 3 for higher ranked ships). Also you need blueprints. At the beginning you have blueprints for Lynx and Traders Lynx. Other blueprints can be obtained when you craft ships or break them up (small chance). Some blueprints will be given to you automatically as you level up. You can buy blueprints from other players, but you need to be at a certain craft level to build a ship (lvl 13 for a basic snow, but lvl 15 for a fine snow for example). Here is the crafting path. You can also find it here. Note that the 2nd link provides a great tool for crafting calculation (many thanks to the author!) Currently top crafting level is 50. Clans: Currently you can create a clan, but it only gives you a tag and a "clan" chat window. More functionality will be added later. The clan leader can promote his clanmates to "Officers". Clan leader and officers are able to accept new members. Graphics, Sound, Controls and Social settings: Hit Esc and choose "options": Note that transparent sails option is a very helpful one for larger ships (for shooting from the deck). A tip from Samba_liten: if the water graphics freak out on you, simply change the graphics setting to low for water and you will be able to play. HERE IS A FULL KEYBOARD CONTROLS MAP thanks, Destraex! That's basically it. Set your sails and enjoy. Don't forget to report ingame or on the forum if you see any bug. Search the forum for some sailing video guides, here are some to start with:
  10. I was thinking about the change to the XP curve in Patch 9.7 today, and wondering what tools the developers have to identify the best shape of the XP curve. For example, how many players get stuck at rank 5 for a long time because the required XP for rank 6 is a big jump but their ability to gain XP doesn't go up as much? Is there a way to measure this? If you make an adjustment, how easy is it to measure the effect when you don't reset things? How are the developers going to test whether the new curve is in the right shape if there are no testers left at rank 1 to try the new curve and see? It occurred to me that in order to test how long leveling takes for a new player, you need the ability to reset your XP to 0. Very few players will be willing to do this for their entire account, but you could reasonably expect some players to do this if they could do it on a specific server only. So my suggestion is this: On character creation, allow a player to specify that for that character, XP (and crafting XP) should be stored in the server database and not synced to their Steam account. If the flag is set for that character on that server, XP is 'local' to that server and doesn't sync from/to Steam. If the flag is not set for that character on that server then XP is synced to/from Steam as before. This would allow players to keep their XP on their 'main' characters and still make new rank 1 players on other servers for testing purposes. Or they could even delete their main and start from scratch, knowing that they can regain their 'parked' XP by making another character with Steam sync enabled. And perhaps more importantly, it would allow players to do this via self-service rather than requiring admin intervention.
  11. Forgive me if this is in an entirely wrong forum... not sure where to put this... so... general it is... Will there be Steam Cards and Badges introduced for Naval Action now that it is on Steam Early Access? I know it's a disconnected thing from the game itself, being a Steam thing, but I quite like the Cards / Badges thing on Steam for the games I enjoy. They unlock backgrounds, or icons, and similar things you can use on Steam. It's a way of expressing your enjoyment of a game and a small way of promoting the game as well. Just curious if something is coming at some point so I don't shred my trading cards into gems or waste gems on booster packs for other games and then end up with nada if/when Naval Action adds Steam achievements and cards.

    "client.exe Not Responding"

    Hello guys.. I have recently bought the game two days ago on steam. It worked fine until today... when I launch the game with steam, the game won't start up. It crashes instantly and a message "client.exe not responding" shows up. I am not sure if this is a graphics card issue (it worked fine yesterday) or the cause of the new update. Is there any way to fix this? I'm using GT 450 graphics card, 8GB RAM, 3.4GHZ processor.
  13. Since the Steam release almost every time i want to join the EU server i have a queue time of 15-20 minutes, not counting the 1 hour queue i had this morning after the maintenance. Knowing the sale rate of the standalone alpha i would say it would have been easy to predict this with enough time. The fact that Steam sales are closed 2 days before the release describes pretty well the situation. I hope there is a solution for this in the short term, because this is not normal at all. Even being an alpha, having to close the Steam sales 2 days after the release means there's a big issue in the administration sector of the studio. Any news from the devs about a fix for this?
  14. Dear Naval Action Sailors, I come to on behalf of the First Royal Navy. We are a newly formed and will be focusing on the training of Naval Action to become better sailors and take control of the seas as we wish. Perhaps in the future there will be an in-game mode in which a player can form a private custom game in which we, the First Royal Navy, can train. We would focus on manouvres and coordinated attacks. I am not good with protracted w1st Royal Navy Admiral Prinzriting so this is it, but if anyone is interested please contact me on my steam account at http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198091503878/ (if you can't get to the link, please also contact me at 1st Royal Navy Prinz) Thank you guys so much, -1st Royal Navy Admiral Prinz

    Steam picture

    Since this only applies to people owning the game, having it added to their Steam library, I'll post it here. (EDIT: It's been moved to General Discussion by someone anyway) Because I don't like to see just an empty card between all the pretty pictures in my steam library, I just made one my own (from a screenshot I found + the emblem): This is done in a few easy steps: 1) Download the original image 2) Right Click the card in your library and choose "Set Custom Image..." 3) Click "BROWSE..." in the window that pops up: And browse for where you saved the image: Click "SET IMAGE" and you're done: Anyone else who also made cards feel free to share below and people may choose a card they prefer

    Steam login issue

    Hello! I'm trying to login to Naval Action with steam Login. But everytime I try to log in I get a connection error. Exit and relaunch the game normally work, but sometimes it doesn't.
  17. I'm getting this when I try to download steam. I'm running on a PC laptop using a mouse in a usb port (but only in selective games). I play Eve, WOW, World of Tanks/Planes. I've never had this come up before. Has any one else Have tis happen to them?
  18. What about an official steam group run by Game-Labs to use to broadcast events, updates or announcements? Like if you have a (significant) new update you make an announcement post giving some brief patch notes, or if you require testers to join a certain test you post an event? People who are in other games in Steam can see the message pop up in-game.
  19. Hi there, I've gotten interested in this game and was trying to buy into the Alpha but the process of going over Paypal and then linking the game to Steam is something I try to avoid. So could someone please tell me why the game isn't available on Steam directly and maybe when it will be. Best regards and hope to meet you on the seas soon.
  20. I can't login to Steam....getting the following Error Steam: SteamAPI_Init() failed. Anyone any clues please? EDIT: Sorry I should have been clearer, this error comes up when trying to login to the game, using the Steam Login method
