In my opinion it's the last time devs are adding ships before release so I would hope to get ships from nations not represented in game at the momment. This would really bring players from different countries to the game.

Caliber of the guns carried by the 32-36 gun frigates of this poll :

  • La Malicieuse carries 9-pdr
  • Euridice,  Niger-class, Santa Monica, Carolina and Friderichsvaern carry 12-pdr
  • Saint-Nicholas carries 24-pdr

I would have liked to see more 9-pdr light frigates in this poll as the category of 32-36 gun ships is meant to be implemented into the line-up between :

  • 9-pdr HMS Cerberus (26 guns) / La Renommée (30 guns)
  • and 9-pdr HMS Surprise (38 guns) 

I know that selection for ship poll is tough to make as it is dependent on proposals from the suggestion thread.

 Foudroyant (1798, British 80-gun 3rd rate) 

 Vote for - 80 Gun 3rd Rate! One of its kind. 

P.S. England expects that every man will do his duty. Don't let Nelson down.

7 of the 27 ships in the poll are from navies like the British and the French.

While I still love the french designs, I think we all can agree that we have plenty of them in the game. We have just received the Hermione and another french ship in on its way (Xebec).

And about the temerarie, it will look like a small sister of the Bucentaure, so lets think a little about having ships with more differences between them.

the Vrijheid is a ship not a class, she is part of the Prins Maurits-class

Apparently the Vrijheid was the first built so it was picked as class name. Also the Zeven Provinciën was built along the same lines as Vrijheid and Prins Maurits.

Why is Fama listed with the 3rd rates? She is so tiny compared to the other 3rd rates it would be so unusual to include her with the likes of the massive 74s and 80s, she is smaller than the 50 gun SoLs in the poll, HMS Leopard for example is over 2m longer and 1m wider than Fama.

   

If the breadth is 37 piedi then it should be 13m (1 piede = 0.348m, 1 foot = .3048m).

We need more 3rd rate, as they were the backbones of the navies back then. Let's add both téméraire and montanes,  and include also a Dutch 3rd rate :D

We always need more ships!

Well, I'm biased towards the ship I have been working on of course (Leeuwenhorst / Edam). Happy to hand over all I have done so far.

Montanes is indeed a fine looking ship...  Although I hate anything that promotes ship-size creep.  I think another 3rd wouldnt be too bad.

 

How about a fix to the Connie while we're at it?!?!?!?

No multiple choices? :D It's so hard to choose! What have i done to myself :P

 

 

 

indeed, I couldn't Decide between the Wreker-class ship (Because I would really like a Dutch ship in-game!), the montanes-class ship ( It looks like a typical 2nd/3rd rate ship and has a nice paint job) and the Foudroyant-class ship (best paint job on a ship so far and is a really good looking ship with a nice and long bowsprit).

lemme make it worse. The Germans, the guys that had a rowboat for their navy, got a ship before the dutch... And now, yet again, the dutch seem to be getting what? Nothing... because ofcourse we need another french ship, because of course there are none in the game. Oh... wait...

And to add to it, we have had other polls where the Dutch ships came in second I believe and they said they would add two ships, I believe that was the hermione poll. And who the hell voted for the Hamburg. Or this Swedish ship? Don't get me wrong, it's a cool ship. But the swedes were nobodies at this time in this region. Well almost nobodies. The Dutch were a massive trade entity that used to rule the seas in the 1600s. And yet this major nation has no ships? It really is a statement of bias in my opinion.

I would also like to add: a Portuguese ship I am fine with. Their presence in the game is 0 despite actually being pretty big in the Caribbean. If we had Portuguese ships I'd be fine with it. But if we get another nobody nation ship, or another *cough Russian* ship that who the heck knows why it's in the game. I'm just going to continue to be a salty sea farer

1665 7 prov is too old -> debated like a million times.

the Vrijheid was lead ship of a class which included a later version of the 7 prov. It's as close as we will ever get to a '7prov' ingame.

Hoping that Light frigates with 32-36 guns (and even Heavy frigates with 50-60 guns) will receive some love from the voters... 

Right now, 6 out of the 8 most voted ships are 74-80 gun ones and the 2 others are a 56-gun ship and a 40-gun one.

We got recently Prince, L'Hermione and Wasa (6th, 5th and 4th rate). How many 3rd rates are in the game? Only 1 real ship.

The purpose of this poll is to fill in 3 gaps in terms of broadside guns including 32-36 guns, preferably with nations not well represented in game :

Captains. We need to fill 3 gaps in the ship line up.

Please propose ships for the consideration. 

Requirements in broadside guns

  • Light frigates 32-36 guns (we have no ships in this range)
  • Heavy frigates 50-60 guns (we only have trincomalee and constitution in this range)
  • 3rd rates 70-80 guns (we only have 1.5 ships in this range)

All other gun counts will not be considered

Nation preference

  • Dutch
  • Portuguese
  • Venetian

Other great models will also be allowed but we would prefer underrepresented nations.

no one    6

i didn't find any information about "Princesa Real" gun loadouts or any other images.

It is a dev request, so i ask if i can have additional information about this ship?

 

Thank you

To be honest, I expected 3 ships to be chosen, 1 of each. I am pretty disappointed.

Who knows, there might be one of each if the (hidden) rule is e. g. : 'only the 3 most voted ships of each category will be chosen for the final poll'. :)
