  1. No smite intended, its a good idea and smacks the other one by a mile.🎓
  2. Nice show off, very jealous.
  3. The problem is that this has NOT been a game as such, Only a BETA game. Many of us have had to take bashings in the time this Beta has been around,ie:= Start over again. Its been along frustrating way to play. Having tested new game's me self, I understand the problem it can have, when you have built up a good game play. So its back to a new start again, with I hope a better playing field. I have enjoyed the time i have spent and, like others, do not relish losing what I have gained. Hopefully this will be the last time that we will have to suffer the changes in fortunes. 'Splice the main brace.'.
  4. I must admit, for lesser ranks who want to build up a trade or production, have a hard time with the little labour hours and expensive production of mat's. But maybe you have to start small to become big.

    Really is a nice ship, pity to spoil it in a battle, 'But what the heck'.
  6. Excellent news all round and like most of the comments so far.
  7. Happy new year one and all.
  8. Ok been in the game as Foxcroft for two and a half months. Really enjoying the experience in my basic Surprise. Had my first battle in the Admiralty games. Was fun running around trying to find players for combat,met some French and did battle, that finished we had contact with some Danes, battle commenced, At this stage i should have pulled out being in rank only Master and Commander, with some crew down, ship still in a good condition I continued to the third battle, this turned out to be Pirates. Out numbered and with some large two Decker's we came to battle, because of the number of ships involved it became very crowded, and I struck a Pirate two Decker and broke my bowsprit.with the help of a fellow player I got free. Then it was I decided I had to get out and repair or to Davy Jone's locker I would go. Had a running fight with a lighter Pirate frigate and found we both were stuck against the wind, with Bowsprit missing found it very difficult to turn back into the wind, all this time I was being pounded by pirate ships. What was so funny at the time was this little Pirate cutter(Capt Slim), being in dire straits by this time,Capt Slim realised I had no stern cannon. By this time I was sinking, The thought that went through my mind while he was firing his 4 or 6 Pdrs at my stern, was that the poor fella was down on his luck and needed the Gold and XP. Then watched the battle for a bit and came out of the game. What struck me as funny was that I landed in La Navasse, which was not one of my ports and had to get a cutter to get home again. Great time I had, would not have missed for the world, not sure on the out come, but hope that all enjoyed as much as me. Good day Gentlemen.

    Response to a review

    Well said sir, i to understand the mech of the game and one day when game is out those who are really interested in sailing will too. Having got to the dizzy hight's of Master and Commander,( Under the name foxscroft) in game I understand now what the Devs are trying to do, I congratulate them on what will be a fantastic sailing/battling game. Good day Gentlemen.
  10. Well once the game comes out and finished, there should be a training area for those just starting, basic and some incentive to continue with the next stage of the game. Remember this is still a Beta game. I am sure the Developers of this game will come up with a training zone for starter members,( never did like the word rookie,recruit maybe). Good day Gentlemen.
  11. All sounds good thinking on the Rookie side of things. Maybe this will come out in the main finished game. At the moment its just fun as far as I am concerned. Thank you Sir Llewellyn Jones RN for explaining the auto manual sequence. The T power I know from one of the video's. Makes sense now. Good Day Gentlemen.
  12. Thank you very much for that advise and the video, I have seen that one and its very comprehensive. But its how to get the Q-E-A-D-Z-C in the first place, I am set at auto. The A and D key;s I am using to turn at the mo. W and S for raising/lower sails. But its how to get out and do manual that I am having problems with. Also how to revert back to auto.
  13. At the moment Lonar matey I have no Idea how to go manual. Von Steubens Idea of a tutorial is a good one when the game comes out proper. Not every one has a mate who can show him the ropes. I have found when testing games there's no problem with not having a tutorial, because your learning the ropes from the start and advising on the way the game plays etc. But also now adding players who were not in at the start, not testing, will In my view put off the general public who want to play this game. I have been in this game a week and Like this Global chat fella had to ask at sea someone to help, mounting new cannon to his larger ship, and not knowing that cannon have diff ship rates . I do know about cannon and you don't put a 32 Pdr on a 6th rate ship, so when purchasing cannon, check its ship rating before you buy, re-selling it again can cost you dear. Good Day Gentlemen.
  14. Well into the game now and earning gold. Up graded to 2Lt and having a ball. Two things I found so far:1- is that when in battle(have noticed this on Video's too) that you sometimes stall against the wind and cannot get out of it unless sometimes you quit the game and come back in again' or quit all together which is a shame. But not all the time.(Have used F!! and reported this). 2- It would be a good Idea to have a compass,N,S,E,W on the map for those no sea men.'Yes I know that top of map Is North'.
