  2. Honestly, i think escaping with your hold intact is the reward. I think giving extra rewards for running away while is wrong imho, especially if run away in the sake of keeping your hold and succeed.

  4. Craftable cannons are a natural extension of the crafting system, especially since the carriages are an infamous plague that needs to be eradicated. When it comes to expanding hold space of warships, crew size should be the most important factor. Ideally we would have a Crew/Cargo slider and Guns/Cargo slider. The Guns slider would partially arm gundecks (allowing 2-18 carronades on a trader's brig, for example). A ship could carry a full battery of guns without sacrificing too much cargo space, but with a reload rate penalty (since the gundeck would be encumbered with cargo) and limite

  5. These were port exchanges following the treaty I think so, I think the main misunderstanding is that the dutch were considering that technically they were still allied with us, asked for a confirmation from the french counci, never got a clear yes or no answer from us so in the end they considered that we had cancelled this alliance. Did we cancel it? I don't know, while the war was going on, we were just that => at war and didn't get the time to talk much about that. No big deal in the end

  6. The "Teleport to Capital" exists to get any player unstuck from a bad situation, like being stranded in a far away land. Other than that keep a Outpost slot open to cover emergencies when going into enemy territory without any nearby outpost. I do not see any need to change the current system.

  12. This is a little off topic because its very out of time frame but I thought people would be interested in the design of this carrack, it was designed in the mid 1500s. I just find it interesting because of its Habsburg chin style bow. I don't know much about the design but perhaps some people here might be able to enlighten me, its Venetian by the way Here you go, model and plan included.

  16. I think this thread is headed in a better direction.... EVERY faction has a few members/clans that make fellow members cringe every time they open their mouth... Its amazing how much more fun the game is when you get a "good fight" or "better luck next time" after a fight as opposed to some shit-talking child rubbing your face in it, whether you won or lost. Again, the reason many of you are starting to see some of us yanks down in your area is that we have run into much the same with the Spanish.. Having fought the same people over and over again, things just build and build until people

  18. I have always disagreed with ahistorical balance for the sake of gameplay. Instead prefering gameplay mechanics that make the ships fit in all of their accurate glory. Don't nerf the ship. Or how can you see it fight in all of it's glory and see how different match ups would have worked for real. What would Victory be like vs the Connie for instance. We would have to say.. sorry in this game you cannot portray this match up. They played with the stats for the sake of gameplay. This game is just another World of War clone. Nothing interesting here. I would prefer a gameplay mechanic like

  21. Are you a confused real-life sailor? I sail, and I don't have to rely on the little tail of the arrow to see where the wind direction is. I don't see an arrow, I just see a line. And it's always obvious which end is which. If you get disoriented by a full 180 degrees without this arrow, then you have major situational awareness issues. I think real sailors might be annoyed by the failure to follow convention, but they can figure it out. It's non-sailors who would be confused by the authentic arrow, if anyone.

  23. I think you are speaking from your experience with small marconi-rigged yachts here. It takes a hell of a lot of wind to put a large square rigger at risk of broaching, and they have nothing to fear from a beam wind. The ships do have polar diagrams, with proper reductions in speed for sailing with the wind aft. Many historical square riggers did just as well with the wind after as they did sailing large, however. There is no apparent wind in the game, to keep things simpler from a gameplay and programming standpoint. And apparent wind is less important for a large heavy warship

  25. Even PvP One is at ~200 players at most when I play, which is prime time in the US. Just get on with it and merge us all on to one server. We won't see a spike like we did with the Steam launch again. It's just the way things go in all games. We might as well have the highest population possible at the moment and deal with queues if more than 2200 people ever decide to play all at once again. /rant

I was able to get pretty close and complimented the sailors aboard her on her condition: absolutely beautiful.

  27. 'Prins Friso' History The ship of the line 'Prins Friso' carried 50 guns. Length 144 foot, breadth 42 foot, depth in hold 14,5 foot (all amsterdamse voet). The ship was build from 1728 to 1730 on the Admirality shipyard in Harlingen. The construction was pre-aproved by the Admirality of Amsterdam, due to the wish to consult the English shipwright Thomas Davis regarding construction. The wood needed was bought and fabricated in Amsterdam and then transported to Friesland. Characteristics Dutch Republic Operator Admiralty of Friesland Launched 1730 How acquired Pur

  28. Timers seem to be an exclusive problem with the in-game US. There are US players in every ingame nation and we operate fine. Im from the east coast timezone in the US and i wouldnt care about the US timers if they didnt run their mouths and say people are going full retard for criticizing an underhanded tactic that takes pvp away from their own players. Not only that, how do you think SORRY shitwrecked your nation the first and second time? They took UNDEFENDED ports in the middle of the night because no one was awake to defend them at the times YOU set them. Last i checked defending is easy,

  34. Your 1803 armament is incorrect, as math would indicate. Also, 1805 is the correct year of her re-classing and armament to 100 guns. 1805 - 100 guns Lower Gun Deck - 30x Spanish 36-Pounder Upper Gun Deck - 32x Spanish 18-Pounder Spardeck- 32x Spanish 8-Pounder Roundhouse - 6x Spanish 18-Pound Carronades Obviously plans posted under her name appear to be for her as an 80-gun ship. The second unidentified plan is Rayo with spar deck and more guns added. Forum search shows both have been posted here already: http://forum.game-labs.net/index.php?/topic/2425-ship-request-2nd-rate/?p=92097

About AI captures and economy being hurt, Admin said the captured ships will be worse than crafted ones, i imagine this time we won't be able to find some Mastercraft quality AI ships with speed gold trim and nice strong wood in the open world like it was possible to find once in a while before. Maybe do not allow any kind of upgrade to be mouted on AI capped ships, not even a single temporary or permanent one ( full fleet of capped small AI 5th rate vessels mounted with fire-ship fittings making an incursion in front of an enemy capital for some giant fireworks anyone ? ) , just lock the

  40. I concur with this. The large majority of NA players now and to come - I have no statistics but it's pretty much guaranteed, and I would venture a guess at 80% or greater - are not seasoned and serious sailors like the OP. They're gamers. For that contingent, it's much more direct and sensible to show the wind in-game exactly like it is now. This isn't a real-world simulator, why make it harder for the gamers than it should be? (even if it's more true to life as pointed out). There's lots of discussions on the forum about what is good gameplay versus realism, this is another good example

  41. I will say this. to sail from lorimers to kidds harbour takes about an hour in the FASTEST ships and that isnt even half of the map as far as distance covered. and from kidds harbour to the east coast is about the same as well as from kidds harbour to summerset is also about an hour. from mort to canalete is almost an hour and a half. now currently when you buy a port flag you have 60 minutes to plant it at that port. not everyone would be able to make it in time. those times ive mentioned are with NO BATTLES OR BEING CHASED just going straight there. Now how big is the map now with those

  43. actually these are great ideas, unless your only game play is ganging defenseless traders going after single ships with overwhelming numbers this makes sense. you will need to put into a port to replenish men lost, and traders will have defenses. makes perfect sense. gankers will have to rely on piloting and something else besides 4 mods and a mini game.

  44. Holy... The design seems very nice and draws a lot from ALL the suggestions given by a lot of players. It shows boardgame rules simplicity allied with wargame dynamic table for objectives. Also, and this is one of the factors I am most intrigued to test, send out the raiders and the "pirates" and seed confusion in the target area to increase the hostility. Oh my, so eager to test this. Suddenly it all became more complex with such "simple" changes. Question: Successful defense versus "foreign" forces does reverse the hostility in the area ? I am thinking "enemy militar

A lil bit like the final fantasy where doing for all there games.. there was always soem kind of fun game to play and progress... that would be nice
