    Basic Cutter

    Can basic cutter's go into enemy ports? I know that merchants can but not warships. What about the basic issued cutter?
  2. 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,
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. I was wondering when or how goods are dropped in the ports. Does the AI do this automatically every few days?
  6. I've gone back and forth about using medium vs long cannon-penetration and distance over speed of reloading. What do you guys think?
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Is there a list of ships that can go into shallow water ports?
  10. 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!
  11. 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?
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. Thanks-I had no idea you could do that.
  17. I captured an AI ship and added it to my fleet. Now back in the open water the games says the ship is overloaded and I can't move! I did not add anything to it but some crew. How can I fix this? Is it a bug or is there a way to fix it or get rid of the cargo on the fleet ship while in the open ocean? Thanks-right now, I'm stuck in the open ocean and cant move at all!
  18. How do you change the perks from +1 to +2 in the perks?
  19. I've been playing the pvp game for several weeks now. I've been playing as a Russian solo and made a number of blunders and some successes in the process. I have some questions: -How do you decide where to build additional outposts? I like the trading aspect of the game, although lost a couple of ships in the process. -How do you link up with the other clans and players from your side? I've been playing for several weeks and have yet to figure out how to work or contact anyone else. -I used several perks before realized I wanted to change several of them. How do you change your perks? -I enjoy this game a great deal. I've got the combat down, just trying to figure out how to build on my career.
  20. Gents: I cannot figure out how to make a fleet. I've "purchased the capability to have a +1 fleet but cannot add anymore than one ship. I enjoy trading but need to have an escort for my merchant ship. I can't figure out how to do it.
  21. I found a sealed bottle and when I explored the wreck's treasure it was a whopping 2553 in weight. My trader lynx can take 500. Is there a way to take part of this treasure or do I need to get a ship that can take all of it at once?
