  1. Good manners doesn't imply duels. Nor duels imply good manners. In truth good manners are and should be always the norm. Best of luck in your endeavours. The gaming world surely needs them.
  2. Is not, that's why i gave my opinion on the opinions Statistic prove no one right and everyone wrong bothers me that the thread gets cluttered with "nay saying"

    Barrack Ships

    Not only after but actually during the era. Officers and enlisted men had to go through a "barracks ship" to get accustomed to the place, drills, space, routines, etc before setting on a cruise, no matter how short. Also many post Napoleon I wars RN men did serve their first commissions aboard the Victory at anchor, and other similar hulks. Simulating gunnery ( no powder, just the drills ), etc. Very cool photo.
  4. let @qw569😳 do his statistics and don't be a hooligan transforming his thread into a "statistics prove me right!!!!" discussion. GJ m8 thanks for the data.
  5. And yet not a single gun over 6 pounds recovered from the wreck with majority ranging from half pound to 2 pounds. ( given nominal 40 guns, 28 recovered iirc, let's keep believing she was a big gun monster )

  7. Yes sir, but in game "deck height" makes difference, guess compromises is the word. There's a Module in game called Improved Mast Tops, specifically for use of musketry. I mean, musketry at sea at this time wasn't so different from bowmen during the transition of the late 16th century. Popinjay shooting remained and remains a specific drill born out of the need for use of shooting at sea. Specialised naval infantry could fight in land with regular performance, but land infantry would never get as good as purpose drilled naval men. One could argue that maybe Marines should be better i
  8. Deck heights difference does. Say a 1 deck ship to a 2 decker will suffer penalties. So on and so forth.
  9. Esta discusión ha alcanzado su cenit y ahora va cuesta abajo muy, muy rápido. Cerrado.
  10. Ah ! That depends on what the LGV has. Enemy ship might have Barricades and you won't know as it isn't a module.

    help !

    You must read the text. Your orders are clear. I hope you read all the text, but in sum... Damage enemy ships. Reach port.
  12. Was the entire point but at least I know it.
  13. Sounds about okay Say 100 marines muskets, firing one volley... by RL statistics i'd say 16% hits is pretty darn good... even for Danish or United States navies marines standards in 1812... 😮 ( considered the best at that point in time ). Given you have accuracy bonus from shooting book i'd guess one can accept the increased perfect shots. Napoleonic wars ratio of shots per kill is 1:250 / 1:300 depending on which engagement you look at. Shooting at sea is very different from shooting in land, even the drills are different. For a GAMIFICATION of reality i'd sa
