Most fun without sailing

Recommended Posts

the mad scramble to build 5/5 ships ,,in the 30 minutes from the devs announcing the shut down for the hotfix ..to the servers closing was the most fun ive had in Naval Action for a long time

not sure what happened in other nations but  Gb really came together to help each other out // people were giving each other resources and materials in sometimes large quantities in some cases for free to help each other build ships ... I understand why the decision was made to roll back the server ,,, but the dissapointment of losing the 5/5 ships was temrpered by the fun in making them and the scramble to find dock space ,, and recources that had run out

i t would be fun if at random times maybe only once or twice in the week  it could be announced in the same way that the treasure fleet is announced that .. for next 5 mins all ships crafted  of one class will be 5/5 

for example  next 5 mins all crafted wasa will be 5/5   or all bucs will 5/5

you may argue that it will ruin economy i feel the opposite will happen ... in the half hour yesterday KPR shop was emptied of crafting materials and resources .. iom pretty sure if the rollback hadnt happened some traders would have made a lot of money

or does anyone else have an idea that would cause such a scramble over a short period of time ?

This game is not about fun. This simulation is about the horror of war, greed and bloodlust, fear and struggle. Oh and not to forget: about bad luck:)

RNG is fine!

only thing, i would like to see, is what Cristendom offered, with no refits and only 3-5 in capital and savezone port.

but, refits and chance of 4-5 or 5-5 in ports, what can be captured.

EVERY crafted ship should receive SOME bonus, leave stock 3/5 ships to captured AI, at the very least a crafted ship should receive a refit bonus, if not an extra perm slot.

i'd say rng is fine, but crafter should pay for a chance to have a rng trim or mod.

what i mean is:

- craft a ship with no extra cost = 3/3 no special trim

- craft ship with extra ingredient such as black ironwood, swedish iron, muskets, war supplies. Those would activate rng and give you a chance to get a 3/3 with special trim ship.

- craft a ship with ingredient like mentionned above plus some extra labor hours and gold and crafting experience gives a chance to get up to 5/5 with special trim.

This sounds like fine woods 3.0

The price of these trading goods will sky rocket, players will be unhappy because they cant craft what they wish to craft. Main reason crafting qualities with crafting notes were removed, noone crafted a ship worse than exceptional

well that is the thing, you want an exceptional ship? pay for it. more gold flux for valuable resource, more crafting competition.

trading will have a higher importance.

 

don't get me wrong though, using extras would not guarantee exceptional ship or even special trimmed one. It is only a roll chance maybe slightly higher than it is now.

Yes good idea.

made a post for it (in bad englisch) but people did not see the intention or meaning of it

so just a shout:

"Make ship building great again"

(i bet this is bad/good englisch/american to  :)

The reroll of the (builded) premium ships,  was a bad idea to start with  (and also necessary),  but just a little adjustment would be more appropriate at that time

at least people would build more ,what would boost the market 

and old bad ships would be put in battle more..> pvp.

and shipbuilding would be more important for young captains to make there own premiums.

Give us a break

well to start with , they (develement) can adjust the rng parameters to give some more output on purple or orange ships.

for example : just to start with...20%grey, 50%bleu,   20%purple, 10%orange   rng 

upgrade /knowledge                     3/4         ,      3/5    ,      4/5         ,    5/5             rng

i don't know all the colors ,only got bleu so far.

Instead of complete RNG, I’d like to see the extra ingredient(s) produce a known permanent mod or at least a random mod of a certain class. For example: all crafted ships would be 3/5 but if you crafted it with additional muskets, you get an additional permanent boarding mod; with gunpowders, additional permanent penetration mod; certain woods add thickness or hp mods. Install copper plating at crafting time and your ship won’t have to use one of the 3 slots to have the benefits of copper plating. The permanently installed crafted mods in the bonus slots could get quite creative in their benefits and recipes. Hell, add 5 historical artifacts and get a repair or healing bonus mod permanently installed on the crafted ship.

Idea, how about an event where a free town becomes open to crafting boats without shipyard and all ships crafted there will get gold and a trim. Would involve a lot of people escorting Indiamans and giant Zerg fleets of pvp

I would like this but maybe make it rather all free ports give a higher chance for gold ships with trim... would encourage people to build their shipyards outside of the safezone...
