  1. Throughout my time in Naval Action, i have gotten lost several times. First time; Open World had just launched, i spawned in as a Frenchie with @Ellis. As there was no map i hopped onto google maps, found the island i believed we had spawned at and tried to figure out which way we had to go, to get to our destination; Plymouth. We came up with an angle we had to go at and set sail, after sailing for a little while we could not see land... We felt lost and decided to try and go straight back to the island we came from. We reached our original starting point and decided that instead of going straight for Plymouth, we would go from Island to Island and to always keep land in sight. Eventually we reached Plymouth and the feeling of successfully navigating without a map was just awesome. Seconds story; At one point we were informed that there, supposedly, was a "hidden island" somewhere on the map. Stupid as i am, i wanted to find it! Some of my clanmates claimed to have been there but none would give me information as to where it was. I looked at tons of maps online to (New and old) to see if there maybe was an island that was not marked on the ingame map. No luck. Oh well, i looked at the ingame map and tried to come up with a few spots where the "hidden island" might be. (In the Gulf, East of Florida, East of the lesser antilles, South-east of Jamaica, etc.) I spent something like 36 hours sailing around in the open ocean, getting lost several times because i had a tendency to change course when the wind got bad. Eventually i gave up, i was certain that there was no goddamn hidden island. A few days, maybe even a week, after i gave up my search i had to go to Bermuda for some reason. I went in a Santissima but i don't recall why. This was the first i had to go to Bermuda so i sailed my Santissima around the Bahamas, then calculated a heading and set sail. This time i also kept changing course and after about 90 minutes, i spotted land. On Teamspeak i went; "WUUUUUH I SEE LAND! I FINALLY REACHED BERMUDA!!!". I sailed straight for the island, looked at it and went; "Wait, this doesn't look like bermuda, the island has the wrong shape i think". (Compared to what it looked like on the map). I sailed around the West side of the island to get to the north side where i was certain the 3 Bermuda Ports were supposed to be. Sure enough, no ports. I kept going around the Island till i found a port and the guys on teamspeak must have been deaf for a week after my; "OMFG ITS KIDDS ISLAND GUYS!!! I FOUND THE HIDDEN ISLAND!!! OMFG OMFG OMFG! WUHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!". Such a happy captain i was, i found what i had spent so much time looking for. And by accident nonetheless... It felt awesome. Nonetheless, i don't think giving new players "Tow To Port" will be a bad thing @admin. They can still get lost, but at the very least they can get back to port quickly to try again.
  2. I must vote no! Otto remind me of the main character in an old Danish kids movie and i don't want that to change!
  3. According to the API, it is 3% "Armor" HP Buff.
  4. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1t8DDHiC6dA22dM5Q_tMZdTiyNo-Jvlv7OZDfvB5GqEg/edit?usp=sharing
  5. Removed from list; Pirate/English/French Refit Bonus. Those 3 are old regional bonus and have most probably not been readded to the game. If you do however come across a ship with either of the 3, do post it here and i will add them to list again. Cheers.
  6. I honestly have not played enough with the latest changes to know the "meta". Currently; Demasting is very easy if you have decent aim and know at which range you can penetrate the different sections. (But at the same time, i see many people shooting masts for very long time, not being able to demast.) Shooting Hull is super easy with new thickness values, and so destroying the Hull is super easy. So in my opinion, it is hard to tell. But as i said i have only had limited time to test the new stuff. (I would say Mast HP deserves to be slightly buffed though.)
  7. Added to list; I'm quite certain the Privateer ship itself has that Prep Bonus.
  8. @admin Perhaps nerfing modules/books/trims to miniscule values (Like old 0.5% Copper Plating) would make more people welcome the RNG Crafting. Reasoning; If modules/books/trims provided such small bonus it will make them "Nice To Have" instead of "Must Have".
  9. Even if that slight edge is only say, 5% extra HP? 1% higher speed? (Copper Plating was once 0,5% speed boost forexample).
  10. Yeah but is the issue the RNG, or that some mods/trims/books are "must haves" rather than "nice to haves"? I'd say it is the latter.
  11. We will need a lot more Data before we can actually say whether or not it is completely random. Maybe they are still regional based, but with a percentage chance of getting one. Or maybe they are just 100% random. Maybe wood types play a role as to which trim your ship might get. Etc etc. So basically; We don't know. There are many variables that may, or may not, play a role in this. To get closer to the answer, we will need to gather enough data that we can start analyzing it.
  12. Ships and modules used to be "Color Coded".
  13. From what i can tell, we are back to "color coding". (Grey = Basic, Green = Common, Blue = Uncommon, Purple = Rare, Yellow/Gold = Super Rare). Perm slots, and "Special" Trims being the deciding factors as to which color your ship gets. PS, Liq, you know what this means right? You gotta craft tons of Pavels untill you get me a Yellow/Gold Pavel!!!
  14. PS. Some of the Trims listed were once "Regional Trims", whether or not they are still in game i am not sure. So please continue to post even though the "Trim" you are posting is already on the list. Cheers.
