  4. If I can enter an enemy port as a smuggler, why can't I set up a contract in the same port? It would help the economy a lot and would also encourage more people to risk coming out of their own waters.

    Trader Tool Broken?

    I don't know if it is a bug or is intentional. I buy an item that shows it will sell for a profit at another port, obviously, I use the trader tool for this. So I sail to the port and a few times the item I want to sell is selling for 1 gold, instead of the price showing in the trader tool, even though I have reached the port and the tool should update, the tool still shows the profit price, while the shop is buying for 1 gold. Is this a bug that will be fixed or is it intentional?

  7. HMS Glatton 56-gun ship built for the East India Company , it was purchased by the Royal Navy in 1795 and converted into a warship. His artillery was composed only of " carronades " - heavy pieces short barrel for close combat and requiring much less gunners to serve them. The " carronades " inflicted terrible damage by sweeping the deck of opposing ship . The French suffered cruelly this English innovation before adopting a few years later. In 1801 HMS Glatton was commanded by Captain Bligh (future commander of the Bounty ) who distinguished himself in the eyes of Nelson.

    Close-haul regional bonus

    I've been thinking of setting up shop where I can build ships with the regional close-haul bonus. Seems like that would be a good bonus on a trader brig. Then I came into possession of a t brig that had the bonus already on it. It sails at the same 12 kts as any other t brig when I sail slightly upwind, mostly upwind or very nearly into the wind. Looks like this buff is a waste of time, even for trader ships. Am I missing something?

    HMS Halifax (Nova Scotia Packet), 1768

    HMS Halifax (formerly the Nova Soctia Packet) HMS Halifax began life as the Nova Scotia Packet, built by a group of Halifax-based merchants to establish a regular maritime mail and passenger service between Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Boston, Massachusetts. In July 1768 she was commissioned by Admiral Hood to carry dispatches to England. Hood also recommended that the vessel be purchased into service with the Royal Navy, the vessel duly being taken onto strength and refitted in Portsmouth. After its return to North America in January of 1769, Halifax captured the schooner Liberty and had an active service-life until being wrecked in 1775 on Foster Island, off of Maine. Later records include mention of a Halifax on the same lines as the original vessel, so the ship may have been salvaged and returned to service. A two-masted schooner, the Halifax/Nova Scotia Packet is a small vessel, with a deck length of 58 ft 3 in and a beam of 18 ft 3 in. At this size she is smaller than the Cutter, and would make a suitable replacement for the Trader's Cutter, possibly also the Trader's Lynx*, as an entry level trading vessel. As HMS Halifax the vessel carried 6x3-pdr cannon, 3 mounted upon each side, however I cannot find mention of whether the Nova Scotia Packet carried cannon or not. As the smallest cannon available to us in-game is a 4-pdr cannon, it could carry those as its armament as opposed to the 3-pdr, unless in future we'll get the 3-pdr. Regarding cargo capacity, the Halifax had a tonnage capability (burthen) of 83bm. As everything regarding cargo space is boosted, this could be increased to match the tonnage of the Trader's Cutter/Lynx. *It would probably be best to keep one small, fast, vessel suitable for smuggling work.

  14. 'Falmouth' The Falmouth was commenced by Mr. Perry to Blackwall Yard (England) on the 22nd of August 1750 and launched on 14th August 1752 as show on page 27 of "Chronicles of Blackwall Yard" by Henry Green and Robert Wigram . It was the first trading vessel of the English Indiaman Companies and showed a close resemblance to a warship in sail plan and rigging, with the most up-to-date reef-points to her topsails The ship was equipped with a large amount of artillery, unusual for the trading vessels of that period. In that she was run along the lines of naval discipline was due to the fact that the vessel could sail alone without any convoy ship, since its rich load was a good bounty for all the enemy vessels and pirate ships. The Falmouth could easily combat a war-ship of the same tonnage, thanks to its crew of 180 experienced men including the best trained gunners. The superiority of the crew was partly due to the incentive granted to each gunman allowing each individual to transport his own 5 tonnage of goods there and 2 tonnage back. These goods were usually sold as smuggled goods to the black market. The Falmouth was of 499 tons and was in service until 1764 completing five voyages for the East India Company under the Captain George Hepburn. She was lost on her sixth voyage, wrecked at Sogar Bank in 1766. Plans

  17. Armament possible 18-20 guns.
  18. 'Charles Grant' Many of the East Indiaman that traded between London and the East were built in Indian dockyards. The 'Charles Grant', for example, was built at Bombay in 1810. Ships built in India were constructed using superior tropical hard-woods such as teak. They were more resistant than vessels built from English oak to the sea-worms which ate through the bottoms of many ships. Wherever they were built, each East Indiaman had a limited life expectancy - 4 voyages to Asia over 8 to 10 years. Between 1600 and 1833 the East India Company's ships made about 4600 voyages from London.
  19. Prins Willem The Prins Willem (or Prins Willim) was the largest ship at the time of the Dutch East India Company. The ship Prins Willim was built in 1649 in Middelburg in the Netherlands and sank near Madagaskar in 1662. Curiously, the name on the ship was Prins Willim. Two possible reasons have been advanced: the ship's name is Middle Dutch lack of space for the name caused the "e" to be changed to a shorter "i" The ship was the flagship of Witte de With in the Battle of the Kentish Knock during the First Anglo-Dutch War.

    looking fora small trader vessel

    Ahoy captains an shipwrights, I am looking for a vessel of the size of either our current trader snow or trader cutter. It should represent either of those in size and rigging. And it has to be a trade vessel. Build for cargo space. I am looking for a ship to model. Which means I need good plans and if possible also good reference data. Ship models or drawings work good to have a look at details or deck stuff. I know chapman has a lot of vessels but tbh. I am not sold on his smaller trade vessels. proof me otherwise if you like to
  21. I cant confirm but was said that, when a pirate ship flagged as smuggler, is showed in its tag "pirate trader". Well, i never saw a pirate trading ship before in game. It is kind obivious that a "pirate trader" will be for sure a human player, not NPC. So, there is no point to pirates go OW as smugglers because they will be identified at first sight and cant not sail safety- i mean "undercovered" to enemy ports. In that case, this must be fixed asap. Anyone confirm that?

    International Trade Encouragement

    1. To encourage international trade (and avoid nations being eliminated due to loss of resources) I suggest that traders be allowed to change flags (and displayed names?) when travelling such that international trade can take place with traders able to visit any port where they fly the same flag. 1a. Perhaps some limitation on contracts placed (max value or weight?) in a foreign port could be introduced for 'alternate flag' traders. 1b. To make trading hazardous perhaps the papers of the vessel may be checked by certain classes of war vessel (privateer or warships carrying marines but they have to get close in open world to do so?) and both the flag and displayed name returned to actual name and nation (for a time or until reset at a freetown visit) and thus available for attack. 1c. I am not suggesting a name and flag change for warships (although it might be worth considering for Pirates if there is a change in their nation game mechanics). 1d. This may eliminate the need for freetowns at all, which are perhaps an unnecessary anomaly. 2.To stop Freetown sneeky pop-in pop-out exploit mugging I suggest that all freetowns should only be available as outposts for trading vessels and that warship are not on sale at freetowns. 2a. that trading vessels with cannons not be allowed to initiate an attack.

  23. The ship was built in 1760 like a 58 guns ship of line,equipped with 24 x 24lbs, 26 x 18lbs and 8 x 8lbs. The ship was reduced to a merchant vessel, the lower gun deck was removed to get more space to cargo, in the end, the "new" vessel only kept the stern ports, and was equipped 34 gun ports, with 26 x ¿18lbs? in the upper gun deck ( I don´t know yet if the vessel kept the original weapons) and 8 x 8lbs in the quarterdeck/ forecastle link to the drawing: https://pinake.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/017b_-plano-sistema-a-la-inglesa.jpg Some photos of the wooden model in the Naval museum of Madrid https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/asset-viewer/modelo-de-nav%C3%ADo-la-flora-de-58-ca%C3%B1ones-rebajado-para-transporte-depertrecho-c-1760/JAHTv83ax8oIeg?hl=en
  24. A shame that there aren't many ships to mention in those centuries from the german states, but at least the Wapen von Hamburg was a nice ship. I'd dream to see her in the game - one will suffice there don't have to be all four variants The first three were convoi ships and the fourth a frigate. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wapen_von_Hamburg_(1669) http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wapen_von_Hamburg_(1686) http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wapen_von_Hamburg_(1722) http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wapen_von_Hamburg_(1740)
  25. I see a problem with Counter tagging. Counter tagging is used by people who don't want to get caught. It works in the way that you tag the hunter as soon as possible (So that you spawn as far away as possible in the battle instance). This makes it very hard and time consuming, and in many cases even impossible to catch a trader. So here is my suggestion. Introduce a second tag radius. The first radius is as big as currently in game, however it is only possible to tag people in front of you. Tagging people who are behind you is impossible. The exact angles can be discussed, but I think a 100° tag cone in front of you is a good idea. The second radius would be much smaller. In this radius there is no tag timer, the tag is immediately. This will make it impossible to counter the tag by making the enemy overshoot you when sailing directly towards him. EDIT: Maybe a cone is not the best idea, since it should also be possible to tag people sideways. So I added a second (very quickly made) picture to demonstrate what would maybe work a bit better. Tag is interrupted if tagged player leaves the blue area.
