Questions to developers

Recommended Posts

Just curious if there will be an implementation for a Follow command/button if there was a fleet travelling together?

 

There's no plan for such command currently.

Something needs to be done :(

 

things (from what I can hear) are not doing so well lately, people are becoming bored with the game and need something else to do, PvP is all well and good but a clan member of mine suggested something that might work well.

 

A system that has been put into another game is AI "contracts" these can be either legal or illegal, illegal obviously paying more but with larger risk, Slaves were one thing that was suggested but was controversial but another player gave the idea of transporting soldiers on your ship and delivering them to whatever port, there will also be the normal trading goods under contract as well, the reason I suggest this is to just give us another thing to do.

 

Thanks :)

"Delivery" missions were proposed by devs in the priority poll #2 : http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/12471-development-priorities-2/?hl=priorities

Might be interesting in order to populate the OW, have more OW PvP and create more PvE content. 

Might also give "war points" (I don't remember the exact terms) to PvEers with the diplomacy/ mechanics that will be soon implemented.

Will you eventually add cosmetic additions and customization to ships. I.e. Ship name choices, wood colours and paint, flag designs and sizes, cannon recoil and muzzle reloading scripts as well as populated quarter decks with admirals etc... ?

Thanks (Apologies if asked before)

There is no final decision about ship name, flag design and such features yet, at the moment there are other priorities. Features like gun recoil, open/locked gun ports were implemented and tested in the past but due to perfomance issues in large battles these features had been turned off.

i have a question about AI ships.  Why do some of them get stuck at port entrance?  You can attack them but they're stuck there until someone does.  Is that intended or is it a bug?

Yes, that would be okay for me, too.

 

Generally speaking, I think we have already a good foundation of ship types. Every new ship is a great bonus for the game!

Did you report it ingame via F11? That way the devs get additional info and are more likely to figure out what´s happening.

No, it is not an event.  It happens every day all the time at various ports.  Anyone who plays the game will have seen them various times.  And I'm asking if it's a bug, not reporting it as a bug.  It's an observation.

Report it as a bug ingame as well. If its not a bug, no worries and you will get an reply here, if it is, the devs have the info they need.

Content patch: June

  • Potential USA PVP 2 merge

Question(s):

  1. Have you decided yet to merge PvP2 with another server?
  2. If so, which server (graphical location)?
  3. Why is this a "potential"? What are the dev's considerations that have not made this an absolute yes or no?

Apologies if this has been asked already but what are the rough make up of the PVP to PVE tester ratio? I haven't ever heard of a tester who is primarily a player on PVE.

Crew replacement cost are exorbitant and curse mission net me on average less than $30,000 profit.  Money is not flowing into the economy and the large number of silver coins people are finding is further depressing ships prices. Ships which people are crafting at a loss to get xp. (the big problem) In fact people are just building and scrapping their ships. Ships are of course the Primary consumable for money to exit the system.  Not to mention the large number of exceptional mods devaluation the mod market .

Q1) Its seems that much of the unstated Intention of the recent release was about economic adjustments to inflationary effects  yet this patch has caused large economic problems. Is it the Devs intention to focus  further on economic issues from your latest patch before you move on to new port battles?

I've enjoyed your game a lot so far thanks for all your effort its appreciated!  But  i'm hopping that some of these issues can be addresses as currently struggling to enjoy my game experience much post patch.

Question about the "underlaying" idea of NA and playing Captain:

 

- It is my understanding that it is not supposed for a Captain to be able to do everything on its own ( combat, trade, crafting, shipbuilding ) in NA, having to resort to the community ( nation & allies ) to be able to access less focused areas.

 

Is this a correct evaluation ?

 

Thank you.

There's a xebec in development. Or at least, one was shown in a work-in-progress screenshot a while ago. Other than that, I'm not aware that we know anything about it.
