I took the liberty of compiling a few questions I have seen multiple people ask throughout the forums. This is not the official Game-Labs FAQ. Instead it is designed to try and answer some of the questions new members/testers may have about both the NA Forums and Naval Action itself. This thread will only cover basic questions. It will not cover questions about future development of the game, nor will it cover questions directed to the Developers. All questions about the current and future development projects of Naval Action, as well as less general questions about Naval Action's current state should be taken to the 'Questions to the Developers' thread linked below. Please follow their instructions on the correct way to ask them a question.

~~Moderators feel free to add your own Q&A's. Users and Testers feel free to post questions you think should be added in the comment section below. If you have a general question that you want answered, post it below too. Cheers. ~~

Q) Am I allowed to record, stream, or otherwise distribute media footage of the game to the web?

A) You are allowed to stream, screenshot and record Naval Action gameplay, so long as it's not showing off glaring bugs,and is posted with a clear explanation that Naval Action is in Alpha, and thus is not the final product.

A) You can report them in game by using the F11 key on your keyboard, or the 'Report Bug' button in the lower right corner of your Naval Action client.

Where are the GFX options? I've noticed some people mentioning a anisotropic filter slider and such, but I can't seem to find the GFX options to do that, I only get low, medium, high, ultra, and custom. When I select custom there are no custom settings as you can see...

I have not been able to find a slider which makes me question it's existence, though I may just be blind. :P

definately yes.

You can try to make one banner out of those or put them next to each other with less height.

The black flag is about the maximum height I do not feel spammed.

 

You should think of your signature beeing repeated over a few posts.. Its going to be hard to see the postings in between

Select custom then once you are in a battle, hit esc. Tada! ^_^

Question  RE: Surrender

 

I was in my first PvP light battle and saw two ships grapple/board.  The ship on my side sank, the the enemy ship was still afloat, so I kept hammering at it with double shot until someone chatted that it had surrendered.  Only then did I notice the white flag.  I didn't know we can surrender in-game?  

 

If not, what happened?  Did the friendly ship win the melee and then sink?  If so, they would have captured the enemy ship and changed the flag, no?

Hi All,

 

I'm keen to be a part of the Alpha testing on Naval Action but being from New Zealand I'm concerned there will be few players on the server when I am able to play - usually 6am - 11am GMT. Are there many on the server at this time?

 

Cheers

Cobolt.

I see forum moderators, and I also see "staff" -- are they the same? Are they listed somewhere? 

 

I also see groups like "members", "testers", "moderators" etc. Are these groups described somewhere? e.g. how they are joined, what they mean.

 

It looks like Admin is the only Game-Labs employee on the forums. Is that correct?

 

These seem like good questions for the Community FAQ.

Moderators are freelancers. We originally were (very) active (and constructive) forum members wich were given this priviledge from the devs.

 

The devteam is "divided" into two roles: either Administrator or Developer. Wich basically mean the same.

Here you can have a look at what I mean

Is it anything like i hope it to be:

Sailing to a port and along the way ecountering enough players? Or are rhe maps so vast thag you can't find anyone?

I've heard that lots of people are just sitting in the ports waiting for pvp matches.

This would mean less people outnon the high see and a gamebreaker for me. Can you tell me.if this is correct? I'd love to try this game but if people.are just pvping instead of sailing and encountering each other this is a no go for me.
