  1. Even though my opinion is that the game really don't need to have a focus on first rates. Rather I think the game would benefit with more 18 pounder and 24 pounder frigates as a focus (a class of ships US is already famous for). My understanding is that the armament on the USS Pennsylvania is a bit too modern for the games setting. The Pennsylvania had 12 or so 8 inch Paxihans that fired exploding shells, something that really came in to use after the Napoleonic wars.
  2. I very eager to see how this game develops. My suggestion would be to consider possibility of sailing in a squadron with friends. That is of course if multiplayer is implemented. Most fun I have had in Naval Action has been out on the sea hunting with a friends, and that has been both pvp and pve. I also hope that one day we will see the coast on Skagerrak and Kattegat in the game and sail our ship in the same waters as Peter Tordenskjold and Lars Gathenhielm. Swedish fort Karlsten and lighthouse at Marstrand on the Bohuslän coast in the 18th century
  3. I would like to propose af Chapmans Bellona class frigate as a DLC. It’s a fast frigate with 24 pounders, and would fill a gap in the DLC-ship tree. The most famous of the Bellona class frigate, which saw service in the Swedish, Russian and Naples navy. The ships have been suggested earlier in the player ship poll, and has a thread in the shipwright forum: https://forum.game-labs.net/topic/5620-venus-frigate-by-chapman-with-plans/?tab=comments#comment-107296
  4. Maybe I'm just nitpicking but, Isn't i the Yacht also from af Chapmans plans? And the frigate, isn't a real ship, but if I recall correctly was partially af Chapmans plans as well. But then again, Fredrik Henrik af Chapman took a lot of inspiration from his time outside Sweden. As did all nations shipwrights back then.
  5. Macau was Portuguese, and chinese, so why not both in the same faction? Faction named Portugal but with some Chinese flags. Maybe time to open up the pacific part of the map?
  6. I for one like that NA stays true to history with mostly white sails. There are a lot of disney-pirate-fantasy games out there and not a lot of games for history buffs. Maybe more colour options for the hull, but as for the sails I like that they look historical. If they implement anything like custom emblems, and fantasy colours, I just wish for a button to turn it off. Or maybe not have it on the server side.
  7. Actually there’s no historical evidence of emblems on sails in the 17th, 18th centuries. In the late 19th century, some trading companies started having an emblem on the main sail. And 16th century ships often get depicted having some sort of pattern or emblem, but to my knowledge this is not often seen on contemporary paintings. I for one, like Naval Action as a game that don’t have the Disney Hollywood-pirate look. But each to his own I guess. Maybe a dlc to keep the sails historical accurate?
  8. I would like to see some personalized captains pennant or clan flag on one of the masts. I just hope that NA doesn't end up looking like PoTBS, with painted sails in weird colours. I like the historical immersion, but I can see how some people would want to make the ships more personalized. Maybe a good compromise would be to focus the customization on the hull and leave the sails more or less white, as all big ships in the relevant time period had white sails. There are a lot of games that let you play as a disney-pirate on a ghostly-looking "Queen Anne's Revenge", but fewer that
  9. It's not a bad idea, and with a restriction to sail at least a 3rd rate to access your "ship bag" I could really see the benefits with this.
  10. I hope they don't add paint to any of the sails of the sqaure rigged ships. Staying true to how the ships looked historically is a big bonus for me as a history buff, and if I started to see alot of disney flavored black sails on every other ship a huge part of immersion would be lost for me. However having a bit more to choose from in regards to how the hull is painted is something I would like to see. But for me its a no to any coloured sails, with the exception to smaller gaffed-rigged ships which sometimes had barked coloured sails. For me is the possibility to customize the hull an
  11. I haven't come across any historical exampel of ship that size having that dark sails is all I am saying. I think your earlier picture gives a better picture of how tanned sails looked.
