  1. I'm aware of the similarities, but so far, it has not been confirmed if the devs used those plans or if they just looked at several model ships or their plans and came up with their own design. If they had build the brig to truly resemble the Fair American, they would have surely named her as such. Somaybe she was loosely inspired on by the Fair American, but we simply don't know. Keep in mind that there were a lot of brigs sailing these days; it was quite a popular rig. So she could just as easily represent some other brig. The Fair American is a nice model though. ~Brigand
  2. The cutter has the cutter rig. The difference between the cutter and the sloop* is that a cutter typically has more head sails; at least more than one, typically three. All topsail from the 18th century were still almost invariably square (the gaff top was only introduced very late in the 18th century) In addition to the main sail (which is a gaff sail on a cutter rigged vessel), cutters of old typically also had a yard to fly a square course from. As Maturin already observed: it would be unlikely that a cutter would fly both square course and the gaff mainsail at the same time. ~Briga
  3. I don't know an ETA, but I can tell you that the Player ship selection 1st Half 2016 has not been forgotten. ~Brigand
  4. The topic of this thread is now being discussed within the moderation group. In the mean time, I'm closing this topic. Thank you all for your replies. ~Brigand
  5. There is a confirmed chat bug, the development team is working on a solution. ~Brigand
  6. No problem. Closing topic. ~Brigand
  7. Please report bug in-game using the F11 key. This way, the developers have access to all the information they need. ~Brigand
  8. The port screen actually means you are in port with your ship. If you want access to this screen, you need to sail you ship back to a town and click 'enter port' (or something close to that) once you are really close to the town. ~Brigand
  9. Ships will be awarded later. If you logged in, created a character and played around a bit, you should receive it later. ~Brigand
  10. I'm guessing (but I don't know, I'm just a volunteer) that you will miss out on the extras: But nobody other than admin can make the decision. ~Brigand
  11. Welcome to the open seas and good luck! closing topic, ~Brigand
  12. Of interest: Protecting your underwater hull: Cleaning, graving and sheeting. Cheers, Brigand
  13. Thanks for the comments! I've clearly been away too long. I was under the impression that, our current snow is loosely based upon the HMS Ontario, while there are plans to include a more faithful representation of the HMS Ontario in the future. I'm however not sure about this. The "Pirate Frigate" is simply in the wrong category, I'll move it. Do you know if it is simply a variant of the Cherubim? What is the 74 / 3rd rate you speak about of which ship is it a varaint? ~Brigand
  14. The OP has been updated (finally). I'm likely to have made mistakes, so please(!) point them out if you spot them. Cheers, Brigand
  15. Ignorance is not an excuse. Let's not pretend otherwise. We've had this discussion before, those who did not agree at first, changed their minds later and learned to play by the rules. ~Brigand
  16. This has happened in the past. It is the classic case of damage farming. It has been made very clear in the past that damage farming will not be tolerated. ~Brigand

  18. To me, this sounds like a classic case of damage farming. It has been made very clear in the past that damage farming will not be tolerated. Thanks for briging this up Kutai. ~Brigand
  19. question answered, closing topic.
  20. I should probably not step into this discussion, but I think some clarification is needed. It seems you are confusing two parts of password security. One part is about storing passwords or, more properly, password identifiers. The other part is about communicating the (knowledge of) the password with the server. My question to migrate the forums to https addresses the second part. Storing passwords on the server is a bad idea. Fortunately, this fact is slowly becoming a known fact. Instead of storing a password, a password verifier should be stored. The accepted best practice is to hash the
  21. Hello Admin, It would be a good idea if the forums (and maybe the website) would be moved to https. This may seem as a low priority issue, but I think it is not. Let me explain. Short explanation: Because passwords. Long explanation: Because it is a well know fact that people reuse passwords, and people like to keep their passwords organized (the human brain is awfully bad at remembering strong passwords) there is a big chance that people reuse their Naval Action forum password for other services, both Naval Action related and other, as well. Since the connection to the forums
  22. The client should start without steam, but Steam is required for logging in. Did you try reinstalling steam as well? If not, then maybe your steam client itself is corrupted? ~Brigand
  23. Yes. Those tugboat were powered by oars though. ~Brigand
  24. It is a known issue and I agree, it is odd. Fortunately, it doesn't hurt anyone. The worst that can happen is that somebody is fooling themselves into believing they are 1 like more popular than they really are :-) ~Brigand
  25. I've seen some other plans from the late 18th century / early 19th century with quite extraordinary rig sizes. I did some digging on two of them (a brig and a schooner, both English) and both were just that: plans. As far as I could figure out they were never build. So maybe, this one didn't make it to the building phase either? ~Brigand
