  1. As noted previously, there has been a treatise on Naval Action compiled by Mr. Doran, edited by Mr. Balck. You can find the link HERE, and a dropbox account HERE for download. As I believe my gaming time offsets a bit with Mr. Doran, I'll instead look at the Treatise mid week in anticipation of the weekend. CREDIT: The material herein is not mine. Credit to the above mentioned gentlemen. And additional credit to Schuetzengel for flipping the Treatise diagrams into .GIFs (link here, I modified them slightly). The notes are based on their work, though I caution that my interpretations could be

  3. Captain's Log - Day 1 - In Fort Royal, Martinique Sailing from Fort Royal on the 12 gun cutter L'Albatros, we spotted a battle not far out of the harbor. Joining battle, we found 6 of our comrades in cutters battling against a British Trader Brig, Brig, and a Cutter. Other comrades joined shortly after to assist. Sighting the Trader's Brig attempting to escape the battle, we gave chase. Another of our comrades drew his cutter alongside the Trader's Brig, but he moved to close and the Trader pulled him alongside her. The Trader's Brig killed many of his crew in boarding action while we

  5. Hi all, yesterday was my first ever exposure to Beta testing an OMPG. It was generally good. Been gaming (off and on) since we had to build our own computers from parts and write our own code (1978 or so) 1st game was my own version of "Lunar Lander" writen in IBM Assembler, running on an IBM 370 VM. Also in ancient times contributed code to "SCRAPS" ("Space Cadets Rapine and Plunder Simulator") These are my bbservations of playability of Naval Action using my current rig: 16 GB RAM Intel® Core i7-3960X CPU @ 3.30GHz, GenuineIntel, Intel64 Family 6 Model 45 Stepping 7 Microsoft Wind

  7. After a decent day's PvPing up around Danish/Swedish waters (three engagements, three kills), a small Swedish squadron decided to come out and do something about the Conny in their waters. Comprised of a Buc, and two Frigates, the Swedes refused to get careless, and as such, I was not able to obtain an advantage. For an hour-and-a-half, we played the Chain Game; me running downwind, and them unable get a good shot at me. Four minutes from the end of the battle timer, the two well-handled frigates made an attempt at boarding me, which I narrowly avoided. At three minutes remaining, they d

  10. Yesterday I had the desire to cature myself a mercury, this is outcome of it. First battle. Our side had me in my Surprise, a Trincomalee a Cutter and a NavyBrig. Against us we had frogs; 2 Brigs and 2 Mercurys. I in my desire wanted badly to cap one of those Merc's, I actually had one close to board but the wind wasn't on my side in that moment.... I had to turn my attention towards the 2nd Merc, since out Trinco started to board the one immediately afterwards. I've made my approach, got a broadside into it and began to close in for boarding. In the moment I was around 100yards away, ou
