  1. As Jean Ribault has stated there are many goods items that you just can't express as a weight. I can't see anything wrong with the way things are atm as far as I am concerned.
  2. Maybe, but as I prefer to play solo on PvE, I am undecided atm whether to give PvP a try or not, but I don't think I will be joining any clans. I haven't got TS for one thing and don't really want to get involved with other groups of players. I prefer to play alone and choose myself whether I want to do some trading, crafting or battle engagements. That's really why I prefer playing on PvE, you can play the game at your own pace. There is plenty to do in this game for single players, without getting too involved with multiplayer.
  3. I couldn't have wrote a better review myself. I am in the same opinion about the game as you are Flashcrow. Haters are going to hate and lovers are going to love. I just love the game!
  4. One thing, being able to play as it is at the moment, has been a good learning curve for me and I am looking forward to the final wipe. It means having to start from scratch again, except for my rank and XP, if this is the case, but I can live with that. I just hope I can reach my final rank in time, because it's a long haul starting as a Midshipman. Loosing all my assets is not such a problem as starting out in a Cutter again will be a challenge in itself.
  5. I have always taken reviews with a pinch of salt. I read them and form my own opinion about what I think is positive or negative. If I find a game that appeals to me such as this game, because I just love games that reflect the Age of Sail, I usually form my own opinion by purchasing the game to form my own opinion, whether I like it or I don't. Yes it is EA and you have to accept the fact that not everything is going to be good, but this game has so much potential and I like the game so will stick with it through thick and thin, because I want it to be what the developers are aiming for.
  6. You can please ALL of the people some of the time. And you can please SOME of the people all of the time. But you can't please ALL of the people ALL of the time! The above is a well known saying and no matter what changes will take place in this game, there will always be people that will welcome the changes and those that don't welcome the changes. This is a fact of life and you either accept it or you don't. I am sure the Devs are trying their best to get this game to suit most of the people, rather than all of the people who love this game, so you either accept the changes or yo
  7. The PRAY button makes no sense. So why don't they just remove it.
  8. Although I am British, I agree with what you say about there being more Dutch ships in the game. There are enough British ships in the game at present and all other nations should have their fair share of ships too. Maybe the Devs will get the balance right eventually.
  9. I agree, crafting top quality ships has been made more difficult since the introduction of fine woods, which are pretty scarce. You have to travel more to obtain them now. Not that travelling long distances bothers me, as I do a lot of trading and the new delivery missions has improved the trading aspect of the game, much better than before the patch. I have decided to give crafting a break for the time being. I have a good fleet of quality ships to my credit and a good bank balance, so I am just concentrating on upping my rank which at the moment is just over half way to becoming a Flag Capta
  10. I agree with what's been suggested. Even in the days of sail, recycling of metals by smelting was being done, just as it is today.
  11. Although not an original, it's nice to see a replica of one of these great trading ships of the 18th century. I found this video on youtube about HMS Trincomalee, which I have visited on several occasions and it's well worth a visit if you ever get the chance. I remember it being in Portsmouth as a training ship, during the early sixties, when I was in the Royal Navy. You will see in the video what it looked like in those days. They have made an excellent job of restoring it back to HMS Trincomalee again set against the historical dockside of the Hartlepool Maritime Museum. Yo
  12. Personally, I can't see any purpose for having a Pacific area. I would much prefer to just have the Caribbean as it is now.
  13. All I can say, is I hope you get better soon. Back spinal injuries can take a while.
  14. Glad to hear you are now enjoying NA. It does need a lot of patience to get to understand everything, but help is always at hand, if you ask. Most people on the forums are always willing to help.
  15. I agree. It is a bad choice of color for reading text, even dark blue can be just as bad. Maybe Orange or Violet would have been a better choice for Mastercraft.
