  1. After I visited the Vasa museum last week I've changed my mind. It was clearly not designed and built properly as you stated, so I take back what I said earlier. Anyway, a tips to the devs, it'd might fit in NA for a aprils fools some year...
  2. Yea, I saw that. I should've said the first three decker blueprint that was built, and not only proposed
  3. You really deserve a medal for this find, Ponk! This is the only swedish three-decker blueprint that I've seen on the internet so far, and I've made a lot of research! Thank you!
  4. Well, I'm going to lay my vote on Wasa and cross my fingers... "Du skall svara mig inför Gud, om du stryker flagg!" ("You shall answer me before God, if you surrender!") Captain Horn af Rantzien, final words to Lieutenant Lagerstråle onboard HMS Wasa, during the battle of Hogland.
  5. Haha, will Diana win the second place with 0,68 % more votes than Venus (and Wasa)? A really close call if you ask me.
  6. Hm... "Carl XIII" with Carl XII's signature? Something isn't right here... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_XII_of_Sweden
  7. Well, since we haven't found any blueprint of her yet, it is almost impossible to make a proper 3D model of her. And by the way, regarding the name, her original name is actually "Stora Cronan". Which I think would be the correct name for her if she ever gets added into the game.
  8. Yes, that's correct Malachi. In game right now, the swedish flag is really the swedish civil flag with our police emblem on, which I think is really weird... The correct naval flag would be the one that Norbi shows up there, "örlogsflaggan". I hope the devs fix this soon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_flags_of_Sweden EDIT: The flags seems to be right now. Ignore my reply
  9. It's swedish indeed. A rough translation of the text in the bottom right is: "...The amirality has ordered 14 June 1728, to make a blueprint of a man-of-war with 60 cannons, after the dimensions of the ship(?) A.Brehmen ....150 foot long, 39 foot wide...Karlscrona (Karlskrona) 25 June 1728." I'm going to make some more research but I'm not sure if this ship was ever made though. I don't recognize any name.
  10. HMS Kronan also carried 3-36 pounds bronze cannons. But something I found funny is that they could only fire the largest pieces 6-8 times an hour because of the heat in the bronze. They had to use water to cool them down.
  11. Yes, and it's not entirely impossible for someone to make a second account to lay a vote more on the prefered ship... So, it'd be very unfair in my opinion if one ship won over another with just a few votes. But I guess rules are rules.
  12. Yeah, right. As you probably know, this would be the correct naval flag for Sweden: (Mid 1600-1815) Very good job anyway with the ship Malachi!
  13. Ah, right. It'd be a shame if it doesn't get added then.
  14. Wow! Really great job man! I only got a litte question, are you a dev or are you just building for fun? You don't have the staff title here on the forum so I just don't really understand.
  15. So it says (translated to english): "The frigate ship Adolph Friedrich was built in Stockholm and launched 17??. The ship made a travel to the mediterranean sea and was sold at its return to the swedish east india company. It made three travels for the same company to the east india. Then the ship, after it got transported to Stockholm from Gothenburgh sold to Stockholm again. In february year 1756 it got in the hands of captain Carl Baltzar Wen?t in Stockholm.
  16. But what do you mean with "the poor performance of next gen consoles"? It is true that the pc will always win over consoles because of the new releases of graphic cards etc each year, but I don't think there has been any game released this far to truly test what the ps4 can handle.
  17. I don't agree. I think Naval Action would be very great on ps4. Did you know that the ps4 is about 10 times more powerful than the ps3? Ac Black flag really looks beautiful on ps4 and it wasn't even created for the ps4 in the first place. And more people can afford a ps4 than a expensive computer anyway to play Naval Action.
  18. For Sweden I nominate... HMS Wasa (1778) Designed by Fredrik Henrik af Chapman. Chapman's idea was a ship which despite its small size could deliver much firepower. A smaller ship has the advantages that it's shallow draft can navigate with more freedom and that the reduction of water resistance gives it higher maneuverability and speed. The low height also reduces the drift which helps the vessel to keep in formation and is a smaller target for the enemy bombardment. The result was HMS Wasa. Chapman made it very stiff, so with full sail set it didn't tilt more then ten degrees during
  19. High-quality blueprints of various ships from Fredrik Henrik af Chapman's book Architectura Navalis Mercatoria: http://www.sjohistoriska.se/sv/Fordjupning/Sok-i-samlingarna/Arkiv/F-H-af-Chapmans-arkiv/ChapmanNet/ChapmanNet1/
  20. A 24-pounder cannon from the swedish HMS Vasa (1628). I couldn't find any blueprints for the beuty though. Powder pan. 6 pounder:
  21. It was pretty usual for the navy to transport the army, so I guess they often played music when boarding. Even though I find no source of it. But yea, I agree with you. Perhaps it would be a little to unrealistic with bagpipes.
