Combat tutorial feedback

Recommended Posts

When doing the exams there is no info given what I have to do. I did the boarding exam and finished the exam by sinking the enemy due to structure no boarding involved and I passed the exam with succes.

To have a the tooltip like: Engage the enemy and finish the exam through boarding action. would be nice

This is a bug - if you lost a ship inside tutorial, after leaving it you will lost your active ship. Please make sure to sent F11 report.

Well, my active ship atm is the basic cutter, i suggest everyone to switch your active ship to this expendible ship, for the test. In case of messes, you all don’t loose eventually anything...

Bug/ feature found @admin @Ink

If I have a ship selected before I start tutorials and exams all my perks are active during the tutorial/ exams (means i have prepaired + double shot+ control)

If I have no ship slected I dont have any of these perks during the battles

Furthermore if  my selected ship that has repairs I can use them during the tutorials/exams. They are not available when I dont have a ship selected. Repairs dont seem to be lost after the battle is over in case i used them.

I also made a little list before the hotfix:

Gunnery tutorial

  • Rename Sector to Aiming line
  • The mission were you need to grape 10 men rework that one or make it so that if you hit 10 men some how make it continuo. I had to complete destroy the to get the mission done
  • Tip say what grape is good for, also for chain
  • Also say something about the aiming time

Sailing

  • With the first yard mission make to go to a certain course instead of 30 degrees

  Special manouvers

  • The yard mission has to go a bit faster

General

  • Relocate the Tips, make them bigger and not white a clear colour like red for example so it is better visible

Have to agree with every one about moving the text down below to a more focal point folks would be looking at, pluss the darker background of the water/ship will make it more easily read.

There is the one error in the first one some one pointed out.

In the boarding tutorial I would at the end add in how to capture the ship and exchange crew. It doesn't tell you this just tells you to take the goods off the ship.

I would also give a little xp reward for the first time you do each one and maybe a little gold.  At the end of the capture one maybe give them the repairs they capture from the ship.  Don't allow them to capture the ship though.  Since you need the fleet perk for that, but put in that info.  Tell them next time they need the fleet perk and they can take the ship as a prize.

As I posted at the start you need to do a crafting tutorial too, something simple as to send them to another port, set up out post and than buildings.  Once they have the buildings they can craft hull repairs.  Keep it simple and hull repairs every one needs specially new players.

  • In the sailing Tutorial there is a typo, Press (S) everal times, missing the s of several:)
  • The gunnery tutorial lacks definitions of sectors and fire modi as well as information about the ammo types
  • The advanced maneuvers should also explain wind changes, tacking, differnt tyoes of rigs,...
  • The exams have no sign of interaction with the player. They should tell us what to do. Destruction? OK. easy. But I already tried to shoot the rigging off the enemy completely with chain, remove both standing masts with balls as well as the bowsprit by sailing manoeuvrers, reduced rigging below 50% and sink him. Neither completes the challenge.

 

Last, but not least: Thank you for giving us back the hope about a nice UI and the tutorial itself! 

sorry: copypasted from steam and too late to check how to change bg.color^^

What is the aim of endurance? I can just sail away ...

If I kill and loot the first enemy, I still cannot repair, so I just sail away.

Before you always face a rookie brig. Now it's a normal brig. So fight is harder. But yeah description would be nice.
