Finally!    Santi number *45* is a 4/5.  Shoulda seen that one coming I guess.   Too bad it has no bonuses, but I'll take it!

With this ship you surely can win the game now :lol:

What a waste of ressources and time.

Have fun until you get ganked

With your ship that has 5% more reload than other ships. :D

I´m wondering what upgrade you will put in the additional slot ? Because in most cases i think its better just to take a 3/5 santi with the right bonus ...

Pretty much, yeah.  I chose Cart reinf. stern + reinf bow + navy structure refits.  I kept two others, 3/5s with Very Cramped and Very Sturdy, respectively.

You are correct, sir...  while a few of them wound up being scrapped (sold to port for 200k), a number of them were put on sale for cheap, or given to clan members who could use them.

It's been a while but I am hoping to find clarification.

All the Refit trims (Boston Refit, Black sea refit, etc) do we have the chance to get them through crafting like the other trims? are they only on NPC captured ships? do you have to be in a specific region to craft them? Or are they gone and we are only left with the "normal" special trims?

This is nice, but why you included bonus 3 and 4? I would just trim it.

thanks Heth, do you possibly have any examples of ships you or your friends have crafted recently with the refit trim? just trying to gauge the rarity of these trims.

@admin These Special Trims are really nice , some very good variety but PLEASE let us craft them, ie take away the RNG. Shipbuilders built to a purpose, they didn't pray to the RNG gods lol! One of the biggest frustrations in the game at the moment is that crafters cannot craft what they want trim wise, all you end up with is a whole bunch of vanilla teak/wo Endymions and Bellonas for sale in the KPR shop that no one wants. I'm ok with having RNG for the chance of a 4/5 purple or 5/5 gold ship but we should be able to craft the special trims as part of the ship build please.

I am not OK with any RNG function in crafting.

*** But: ***

I should be OK with special knowledge a crafter could learn, some knowing how to build an agile ship, some a fast one, or something else.

Dear Developers,

why don't you create the same mechanisms with ship experience for crafting as for battle.

For each type of ship crafting XPs enable book based knowledge of advanced crafting abilities (for example trim types). So the 20th Bellona will be better than the first because of the gained experience.

This would lead to a specialisation of the crafters on 'their' types of ship (as in reality, noone built trader brigs and first rates at the same level)

If you use the same mechanisms as for battling (knowledge, books) you could reuse code structures.

In a second step built-in upgrdes coud be integrated via special books in this mechansims also.

Nerf Request:

Fast = 1%

Very Fast = 2%

You really want them to change it by a whole 1%?  There really isn't much of a difference.

But it' s a -50% and -33% nerf respectively. Not a small nerf.

That said... @admin:

Will other trims (aside the most standard ones) be available and happening on crafted/redeemed ships too?

I think they would add a nice chance to pushing some different ship set ups.

Lets hope they fix the whole system to something better. If not, then yes they should decrease 1% and/or remove very fast from the game as 2% with the current values is very good.
