    Little things you'd like to see

    Can we have the crew and fleet ship allocation bigger? (or get rid of the fleet perk) Just reached Rear Admiral and it's 1100 and 3 ships, doesn't allow for a very big sized fleet, especially when you have NPC fleets sailing round with 12 ship of the line that you have no hope of being able to challenge.

    Would like to be able to jump to another ship in your fleet and take control if your original ship is sunk or captured, rather than have to sit and watch the battle on the map while your NPC fleet blunders through the rest of the battle. Also a bit more control of said NPC fleet, being able to tell your ships to de-crew, board, stand off or close action.

    The Lost Fleet.

    Just another question without starting a new topic, do NPC defenses no longer fire on opposition ships while fighting close to ports? Was in a battle last night and the ship I was fighting sailed past one of my friendly forts give it a broadside and received nothing in reply... I have tried searching the forum but couldn't find the information.

    The Lost Fleet.

    Well I nearly lost the plot when I logged on before, entered the OW and there was no sign at all of the shipwreck and the icon had gone from the map! Thought I would leave it over night in the hope that some goodies would appear in the wreck. The laptop nearly went flying across the room when there was no wreck, anyway as I sat there thinking what to do/where to go my fishing icon flashed and I got sealed bottle, don't know if this was totally random or it had been placed in that location by the developers. It's a good job it appeared because I think I would of just logged off and not bothered with the game again!!
  5. Got some text in game that said: "Rumour has it that a great storm has destroyed a large fleet in the West Indies." When I looked on my map next there was a shipwreck location to the west of Florida, anyway I worked my way from my usual operating location of Martinique to KPR by teleport between outposts then manually sailed up round the west of Cuba and then north to the shipwreck location. Eventually I came across the wreck but when I went to search the hull it said come back some time later, I then clicked on it again and it then said someone has got there before me and that the wreck is empty. I have found this to be rather annoying having sailed so far!! Has anyone else experienced this?

    New to the forum so apologies if this has already being mentioned but I would like the option of being able to choose what shot my guns are loaded with at the start of a battle, I think that the prepared perk is unrealistic because at the start of every battle the ships would start with guns already loaded. I like to give an opposition ship a few broadsides of chain shot to slow them down first before going to work on the hull/crew. Also would it not be possible to use the arrow keys to jump straight to the aiming view rather than scrolling round with the mouse and right clicking? When fighting close quarters it would be easier to press left arrow to switch to left broadside take an aimed shot at one ship then say down arrow to switch to stern view and take a shot. Hope that makes sense.

    Perk Reset

    50 combat marks is far to strong, I stupidly after the big reset set my perks without fleet control, couldn't capture an opposition ship after a battle so took me ages to work up from a cutter.
