    • Reduced XP for knowledge slots
    • Reduced weights for ship building resources to minimize travel times (approximately)
    • Pirates can now enter neutral towns

    • Prices for permits reduced
    • Victory mark conversion lowered

  • National Taxation
    • National cities started to charge tax for all purchases or sales using money (inlcuding private trade and contracts
    • This is required to support maintenance of reinforcement fleets. 
    • All uncapturable cities now provide amazing support for nationals of those cities if you were attacked in the vicinity of those ports by an enemy of your nation
  • Clan taxation
    • Clans controlling the port can lower taxes
    • Clans controlling ports have to pay maintenance (which was previously paid by the governments) 
    • Clans can increase port maintenance to add the following improvements
      • Open access to port to everyone (declaring it neutral)
      • Reduce labor hour costs in the town
      • Increase NPC goods supply in the town
      • Benefits and numbers are for testing purposes and might change
    • If maintenance cost is not paid the town will turn back to neutral as government officials will abandon the town if not paid.
  • Hostility missions we brought back to give clear and easy way to get hostility to 100% without mindless searching for NPCs.
    • Hostility missions are back, but only spawn in the vicinity of the town
    • Approximate number of missions to raise hostility to 100% - 4.5 missions (each mission has 10 NPC enemies)
    • PVP kills also count towards hostility.
  • Port battle entry rights is limited to captains who are members of clans to allow conquest players better   control on who enters the port battles.
    • Port battles are now set up by clans for the nation
    • Clans and guilds can add other clans of the same nation to friend lists (allies)
    • Only players in clans on the friend lists (allies) can enter port battles set up by the clan 
  • Because hostility system and port control system have changed drastically - map was reset.
  • Other fixes and changes and tunings
  • More than 150+ bugs fixed.  

 

Post will be updated if we forgot to add something.

Ship Note = random ship or blueprint? In game we have 2 ship notes that you mistake. From Deadman Chest ready and random built ship and from Admiralty ship notes that are blueprints. Please, fix it.

In previous threads on the matter, you mentioned changes also in the trade resources mechanism (in particular you told that free towns would have only produced trade goods - so no longer consuming them - and only capital cities would have consumed trade goods), but I see nothing in the release notes.

Is this change already implemented or is it postponed (or abandoned)?

Awesome! Cant wait to get home and try it out!

Its a shame that the PVE rng factor is still in place for books and refits. A better solution would be to make them horrendously expensive in the admiralty shop.

@admin I love the new direction that you are taking this game!

Admin, do you mean "... entry rights is NOW limited to..."? I am translating and I found this.

Are ALL cash transfers taxed? For example, if I was to loan money to a clan member or a friend, would that be taxed?

in previous discussion admin said barter (= trade window between players) remains untaxed

But it also says in these notes 

"National cities started to charge tax for all purchases or sales using money (inlcuding private trade and contracts)"

In fact, it's a donation and you need a clan warehouse in such port. Pretty smart way to avoid paying taxes, but not easy and possible everywhere.

Also, is clan alliance limited to nation?

Clans can be allied only within the same nation

So what defines barter in game now then?

Barter always used to mean goods for goods, as opposed to goods for money

So you trade money for nothing and that isn't a sale?
