  1. I just joined GB and share your attitude towards naval action. Before the wipe I was in a nation that was less than friendly and not fun mates. I enjoy both solo hunting and working to help anyone, including my opponent if they are a decent guy as it its a game after all. I am on the east coast of the US time zone, so I hope that would not be an challenge for working with others in the clan. My handle is Captain Thomas Lacey.
  2. I would be very interested in this. I too am a solo player and sailed for two different nations. I could use the loose support of a clan. What nation are you considering?
  3. yes they show as filled up to certain levels. Likely the port owner issue
  4. I have a ship yard in a port that show "investments" and my clan should be able to access it. How do I build a ships with the port bonuses? I just am able to build ships but they don't show the port bonuses.
  5. Is it possible to have more than one character in this game? Can you buy another copy under the same steam account?
  6. Where do you find Teak wood these days in the game? I can't locate any. Thanks
  7. I've got superior gunpower that increases cannon penetration. Does this work for carronades too or just cannon?
  8. How does the new port upgrades work? I'm trying to craft better ships and don' know how to build/access these upgrades. Thanks

    Basic Cutter

    Can basic cutter's go into enemy ports? I know that merchants can but not warships. What about the basic issued cutter?
  10. I was wondering is someone has a good video or insight into how best to steer your ship to avoid full damage by enemy fire? Another player pointed out that I sail too much to the broadside to the opponent and take more damage as a result. I guess you try to present your bow as much as possible until you turn to fire? Thanks,
  11. I'm a bit confused about the upcoming wipes and changes. I understand the one set for this week, but what is planned over the next 1-2 months? I'm a bit frustrated that my last few months of successful trading turned out to be for nothing as its all going to be wiped out. But will the economy be set to start trading again or is another wipe or major change coming? Thanks
  12. When I try to board a smaller trader brig with a class 4 frigate I can never seem to be able to grapple even when I should. Is this because of the height Difference? Is so, is the a book or mod to aid?
  13. I was wondering when or how goods are dropped in the ports. Does the AI do this automatically every few days?
  14. I've gone back and forth about using medium vs long cannon-penetration and distance over speed of reloading. What do you guys think?
  15. Gents: I'm a solo hunter of average ability. I enjoy preying on weaker PVP or equal npc ships. I've used a number of different ships, but wanted to get input as to the best Solo hunter ship, especially a frigate? Before the Hercules was so prevalent, the forum used to discuss the Surprise or Renominee. I've used the Hercules as its easy to replace, but I'd like some others opinions and views. I tend to need a very fast ship and build mine out of fir. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
  16. When I'm in a battle, I noticed that the inset map you can pull up that shows the overview of the ships engaged has squares. How afar across is each square? I assume its to help determine range?
  17. Is there a list of ships that can go into shallow water ports?
  18. I've got level 3 shipbuilding yard, but I'm not given the option of building the Edymion frigate. What do I need to craft this ship? I'd like to build one of my favorite ships!
  19. During a recent battle, my opponent sent me a message during the engagement. I could not figure out how to respond to him. Is there a command that allows you to access the messages during a battle? It easy to do in open world but not sure how to do it in battle mode. Thanks

    port captured

    I tried sailing a cutter there but the port was closed-stating enemy port. I was just at the port four days ago. Should I sail a trader there?
  22. I have goods and ships at a port that was captured by another country. The game won't let me teleport to the port. Is there a way I can retrieve my stuff before the port is closed to me or is it all lost? Thanks
  23. Is there a recommended number of hull/sail or rum a ship should carry? I know you can only use one hull or sail repair during battle but how many rums can you use to get your crew healthy? I fought a Hercules in two quick battles ( I had a fleet) and he had repaired all his hull damage-which was considerable--from our first fight. Not sure how many hulls he had to carry to do this. If there is a guide out there on this subject, Id appreciate it.
