  1. Exploration of the Open World The free camera works in the OW. Essentially you can anchor near a port or an island, and send an exploration party or a group of spies (via the free camera) from your ship into the nearby hills or port and watch enemy ships come and go. drop off spies or soldiers in enemy ports - raise national hostility pick up spies find caches of weapons or loot or buried treasure in the port or on deserted islands find shipwrecked sailors establish lookouts and outposts find new sites for mines find new species of animals
  2. My annual post on the need for Exploration of the Open World. The game is incredible from so many standpoints, especially the open world the developers have built. So here's what I recommend for Exploration: The free camera works in the OW. Essentially you can anchor near a port or an island, and send an exploration party or a group of spies (via the free camera) from your ship into the nearby hills or port and watch enemy ships come and go. This feature could be harnessed by the devs in our gameplay content. We could be assigned OW Exploration missions: drop
  3. I've recently come back to the game after an absence of 18 months. I've been playing on PVE because I only want to do the PVP grind once (waiting for release). I must say I'm blown away at how good the new UI looks and I am impressed with how smoothly everything works. I trust the developers to provide some final tweaks to the combat and trading models and the game will be ready, except for one last missing piece to put the game over the top - Exploration of the Open World. The game is incredible from so many standpoints, especially the open world the developers have built. So here's what
  4. I appreciate Rebel Witch's suggestions and think they are good, but to me, the root cause of the difficulty in finding PVP is the low player population, and until there is more compelling OW content to attract and keep new players sailing around the OW and exploring, this game will never live up to its immense potential. There have been dozens of threads over the past year full of great ideas about how to make the OW more fun and interesting. I'm frustrated that these ideas seem to never make onto the priority list for development.
  5. Outstanding. Love the game's potential. It desperately needs more content.
  6. The Devs created this big beautiful OW map, but it is mostly empty. I really feel that OW content could be one of the missing links in helping to make this game successful when it is launched. Generic OW missions like you mention in point number 6 above would be alot of fun. So what about number 7 above? I'd love to see historical based missions that would cause players to actually figure out where they need to go to accomplish their missions. Example - Travel to the island where Edward Teach was killed - pick up the chest with the buried loot. Take this loot to the first island discovered by

  8. Good questions. I've found the LGV is a trade ship that is good at running away from most raiders, but when cornered it can still put up a good fight. You should stock it with boarding mods and green or blue marines if you have them - I've boarded a few aggressive raiders at the last minute and saved muself from capture - make sure you are boarding prepped. Of course mods are all about to go bye-bye with the next patch so we will have to develop new trade ship tactics, but thats the fun part of the game. I don't bother with fleets - they tend to get in the way when you need them. If you are su
  9. Even though I've been playing this game for over a year, I discovered two new features today: The free camera works in the OW. Essentially you can anchor near a port or an island, and send an exploration party or a group of spies (via the free camera) from your ship into the nearby hills or port and watch enemy ships come and go. This feature could be harnessed by the devs in our gameplay content. We could be assigned OW missions: drop off spies or soldiers in enemy ports - raise national hostility pick up spies find caches of weapons or loot or buried treasure in the
  10. Something's not right. You have a much better rig than I and I usually get 30-40 FPS.
  11. 1. Any plans to add more eye-candy to the OW - fishing villages, shipwrecks, remote structures, lighthouse?
  12. I've come to the same conclusion. I love NA and will continue to play it no matter what, but an annual asset wipe would make the game fresh again, especially if the new map had new content to discover. Maybe alternate the maps between the Caribbean and Europe. At the year-end, top players could receive hall of fame recognition in various categories - kills, gold, etc. The game needs alot more players in order to make the OW more interesting. I recommend some changes to the gameplay as it currently stands: Make alliances bilateral - only one other country can be your ally at a time -
  13. I would support a Kickstarter for adding more eye-candy in the OW. One idea would be to provide a seperate Kickstarter for each county, that way each nation and others could support adding fishing villages, remote structures, small towns, secret pirate docks, shipwrecks and other things to make the islands and coasts in their own territories more interesting.
