  1. Today I will have to decide if this event planning proceeds into the next phase. Prerequisites are not met. Not enough applications, 10 being the minimum, means the event will not take place, if this does not change within this day. EDIT: No last minute change. Inertia of this playerbase makes events organized for them impossible to succeed. EVENT CANCELED.
  2. Volunteers for acting as referees: (1) Dretch Baru (2) Wyomingnative (3) (4) (5) (6)
  3. First step List of interested players who want to start in this regatta: (1) Quazar (2) ChaosGeneral (3) Kpt Smokkelaars (4) Pierre de Iberville (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13) (14) (15) (16) (17) (18) (19) (20)
  4. I consider planning a boat race (regatta) for 7th rates in mid-october 2021. Race will start in Flatts, Bermuda, and end in Dariena. But you need to make port calls in four ports inbetween, which, as anti-cheating measure, will stay secret until the race has started. Your arrival in those places will be monitored by referee boats and you will document you made the call by a short message made in local trade chat of that port. Victory condition: First speedboat arriving in Dariena will win. Admission is one wooden chest per boat. Half of collected wooden chests will be given to w
  5. Is there a chance this map could read where the epic events are for that day and plant symbols on the map where found?
  6. MDRA will be organizing the first "Macao Grand Mast-Sniping Contest" on PvE peace server. Contest will run all june, from 1st - 30th, in arranged battle instances. First prize will be a DeRuyter permit, second prize 10.000 doubloons + 30 edinorog guns, third prize 5.000 doubloons + 10 edinorog guns. Other (donated) prices may be added. Now what about conditions? (1) participants use a single ship of 5th rate (their choice which) (2) participants attack a First Rate Fleet of 10 or more ships anywhere in Open World in my presence as referee - so this means prearranging dates (3) We
  7. This is a delusion. Game-Labs cut down massively forum section about Naval Action, after which most of us moved on to crappy Steam discussion or Discord, that is why you see "most forum posts" now dealing with Dreadnoughts here. Hands down Naval Action is still the most popular game of all Game-Labs creations, I dare say without having access to numbers.
  8. Lots of worrying going on now, across the places (discord, even here in the stasis chamber). What I find most confusing is the silence of game-labs about this important fact which emerged out of thin air as surprise, while they had several months to think about how to tell the playerbase. That silence isn't exactly beneficial for pre-orders kept on Sea Legends either, after what I read on discord. At least the Ferengi here come as a Swedish company and no moneylaundering shady letterbox company on Cyprus.
  9. 'Boaty mcBoat Face' is even funny. The idea of name moderation is to prevent offensive names. Your example does not look offensive at all, it would be a Captain with sense of humor who chose that. So I think the way to go is having a prefab list of acceptable names, plus unknown new requests would be in pending status until a moderator gave green light - if devs are in generous mood. If not, names not being processible from prefab list simply would be denied. But I hope for some open, versatile naming system in the style mentioned.
  10. Sea Legends website talks about "18th century" ships. I really hope we stay with that and no ugly anomality monsters like this Pennsylviana will spoil the whole thing. Naval Action goes already to the borderlines of age of sail, I expect SL to be staying true to the century, that would have to exclude Napoleonic era ships as well, if it would be handled strictly.
  11. Since he wrote the initial post, there have been various Steam sales when all Naval Action components, main game and dlc, had been drastically reduced in price. Just needs to pay attention when they are happening. Summer, Autumn, Haloween, Winter Sales - were your opportunities. Next would be Spring Sale.
  12. A target for main guns, another target for secondary guns being assigned is essential. My first naval warfare game "Taskforce 1942" (Microprose, 1992, came on five 3,5 diskettes...) had that already.
  13. It is one of three wood sorts which were originally announced with the others, but did not make it into spawning ports. These are: moulmein teak, virginia pine, danzic fir. The few logs which could get retrieved while they were used on admiralty ships in port shops still exist, but they are not available in the pull down menu of your manufacturing shipyard. A mystery.
  14. As someone affected by that, I could not agree more. It's the black spot on Keen's reputation now.
  15. Impressive roleplay detected. Not that I am involved in your affairs or those of my French brethren on PvP server, but I sure am going to miss this when this forum dries up like water ditches on Crimea.
  16. You move there, others move to discord, others move to steam, others move to fan pages, others... others... others... If someone planned to damage game-labs by dispersing the playerbase, he could not have come up with a better idea than closing parts of this unified place, the original forum. ^^
  17. How would you have done things like the polls for future game features on such poor platform like Steam?
  18. Sad. Forum is such a lively place. Steam discussions suck in comparison. I actually don't understand why studios give up their own forums and redirect travel to Steam. Less enjoyable, less practical, bad to navigate around. Trouble with attaching pictures, data..., no referencing in game to forum posts. In the sum, disadvantages everywhere. But I have seen it before. Keen Softwarehouse (Space Engineers, Medieval Engineers) let their forum die and made a readable archive out of it. Same move: to Steam, their support platform and discord instead. I think this move is costing more
  19. I see this mission more like a demo (and it is pretty impressive for beginners). So... it would be a good idea to insert a 'skip mission' button and do that later when they are at least familiar with basic keys.
  20. No, at present there isn't a skip function. Some beginners seem to fail as they don't know how to steer the ship, regulate sails, shoot cannons. Or identify who is friendly and who is enemy (actually they start next to the friendly column and have to get past it to see and attack the enemy column).
  21. It's so simple. You score as many hits on hull, sails and crew as is being asked of you (there are counters, pay attention to them). As nobody is shooting at you, that should be really easy. Bring your boat into closer range to enemy line and target anyone you want. Just keep shooting. Sometime the score will be reached.
  22. None. But that was expected from the beginning. (technically a gunboat can escape heading against the wind, tested some days before)
  23. Results: Contestants qualifying for prizes: (First) Abbe Parseche with 9 hits, got Diana note, 3rd Rate elite note and 9600 doubloons. (Second) Zlatkowar with 7 hits, got Wapen elite note and 4000 doubloons. (Third) Andaevinn with 5 hits, got Frigate elite note and 2400 doubloons.
  24. This first mission will keep returning until you complete it (no decline option). As you cannot get damaged in that mission it is actually easy. Just try to do as much damage as requested in hull, sails and crew on enemy ships. At the end, you get a reward. It shows you what is expecting you much later in game. So you know it is not only the basic cutter in which you find yourself after this entry panorama is done.
  25. List of Donations for the 2nd Impossible Gunboat Mission Contest: (1) Elite Note of a 3rd Rate for 1st Winner, Elite Note of a 4th Rate for 2nd Winner, Elite Note of a 5th Rate for 3rd Winner [courtesy Queen Marie Antoinette) (2) Diana note, courtesy Aeomar (GB). (3) Académie des sciences de l'Institut de France donates a special prize: 100 edinorog guns to a contestant which figures as having sunk any HDF ship (shown in stats, proved by screenshot), using his gunboat. (4) Four gunboat notes (not for winners but for contestants lacking boats) from Longbeardos Inko (ES)
