    Question or additional information on a Bug report

    On the day of the patch I teleported a ship and it costed me 250k instead of the new amount. I sent a F11 on that day and message to you by PM ingame. I know you're busy... I only hope that I will be able to recover my loss soon. Thanks,

    Book: Trafalgar: The Biography of Battle

    Nice! There is also that free online book: The enemy at Trafalgar: an account of the battle from eye-witnesses' narratives and letters and despatches from the French and Spanish fleets Which has at the end an interesting appendix, the battle order from Villeneuve (in French) which shows that the French knew what to expect from the British. And then there are the drawings of the battle plans from Magendie (capt of the Bucentaure). Since you're also interested on the land part... I have just finished reading Napoleon: Soldier of Destiny by Michael Broers which is only volume 1 of 3 and I have been pleasantly surprised by this book. When reading books on Napoleon you always think you already know everything about it especially after having read a few. But I have to say that I really appreciated the perspective of the author on this one. A lof of the books on him are hagiographies (thinking about Napoleon: A Life by Andrew Roberts where you can feel the political views of the writer) or the complete opposite. I will start volume 2 by the end of the year I think. It makes me think that the subject of Napoléon Bonaparte is one of the most interesting to read and research about because of its complexity and how different authors will see a different man in his actions. I'm sure you know Stefan Zweig who did a psychological portrait of Joseph Fouché, one of the best I ever read about a complicated man and I wish that he had done one on Napoleon. Anyway going back to Michael Broers I really liked his first volume on Napoleon. The beginning was very interesting as he started with the history of his family and its relation with Corsica.

    Shipyard compensations

    What about the ones who paid 250k for a ship tow on the first day?

    HMS Victory

    From what I heard the ships of the series were very sturdy but also could maneuver as well as the 2 deck series of 74 and 80 guns... Just a little bit slower.

    Testbed - Teleport fees

    It would make sense if the map was way smaller.

    We don't care about them.

    Beware of Leaks!

    I'm voting for renaming the Victory to The Strainer or the Colander.

    Please fix Naval Action Perspective

    Who cares? We don't have a normal time perspective when sailing in the game (time compression in OW and in battles). And we don't really have any character interaction with towns.

    [Caribbean] Great battle results.

    The Maginot line was only one component of a strategic plan... It was supposed to be the shield that would use less men (and therefore help with the population deficit created by ww1) to hold the terrain in front of the German border, the other component was the mobile armies (spear) that was supposed to stop any attack on the flat terrain of Belgium. If you want to know more about that particular campaign there is a very good book by Karl-Heinz Frieser : https://www.usni.org/store/books/holiday-catalog-2017/blitzkrieg-legend Maginot did its job. The other part didn't...

    The (almost) forever war. Pirates vs Prussia

    If anything kills the game it's the lake of things to do. When there is no war, players have a tendency to play something else.
