New weights system!

Recommended Posts

admin    28,124

Leaders of the European nations, Colonial leaders and USA agreed to a weight system change. As a result all ship building goods weights will be reduced by 3 compared to an old system. 

Captains are advised to avoid active hauling of ship building goods before the patch as they will have to haul 2-3x less after it

Good!! I need an additional aclaration because an possible barrier language. 

When you say ship building goods you mean only to for example oak planks, iron fittings, etc... or Oak log, iron ore, lignum vitae log, etc too?

Raw resources weight is lowered, thus materials weight is changed accordingly

Oh I see now you do this after I moved a whole bunch of stuff last night. Well good thing is I still got another load of stuff to prob move tomorrow night to be ready for the patch.  What we need to know is buildings going to be refunded?  I want to drop some ports, but if they are I'll wait until after patch is dropped to do so.

Lets blame it on Harvey, I'm still dealing with that mess.  Well not me personally luckily myself and family didn't get effective but I got tons of friends in Houston right now that are homeless or still flooded out.  Either way would be nice to get them refunded so folks can pick new resources according to new map.  Cause by what I understand resources are going to be moved around too in this patch.

Was it the Pope spiriting "The Wonder of Mass Reduction"? Some Voodoo priests?Just by changing the weighing system you won't change the masses of the goods transported, normally.

No wonder there is a great upheaval in Europe going on. Revolutionary!

You privateers should be loving this.  Player traders will be hauling potentially 3 times the value of these goods now.

Ship recipes being tuned? I would love to see what you mean as I am hopeful about this.

I was thinking the devs were being gracious, allowing crafters to move their goods to new ports in fewer trips, because truthfully it is a lot to move if you had a nearly full expanded warehouse.  Some players were worried it would be difficult to move so much, and in some cases this is probably true, or at least a burden. Thanks for that Admin.

Still, good loot potential for privateers hunting. ;)
