  1. Why mod when it is an anomaly by the devs. Or is it explainable DEVELOPERS?
  2. In Ultimate Admiral please STANDARDIZE the number of men which each soldier or sailor represents. I have calculated at least four different numbers of men that each soldier/sailor represents. None of them are whole numbers. In the case of the cannon, the number given is 50, represented by 2 guns and 16 soldiers! Why not standardize at 5 per soldier? Thus, 2 guns will have 10 artillerymen. A company of 100 men will have 20 soldiers to represent them. In tabletop gaming, we call them 'figures.' So, depending on the period and the rules, each figure could represent 5, 10, 20, 40 or 50 men. You should do the same with Ultimate General and Gettysburg. Thank-you.
  3. I' d love that. I've just lost my LGV with a full cargo from a wreck to four Swedes. I was cautious but was caught just a couple of ship lengths from a friendly port. It makes the game too hard a grind for a loner like me. To build up then to lose it all.
  4. THERE are still people who are worried about another wipe after this one on 10-14 June. It is a game LAUNCH isn't it? Or am I wrong?
  5. 1) Is that the full release, or the beta? 2) 'This year' seems an unlikely projection for a development team. What are the actual time parameters?
  6. Merci beaucoup for a new game, especially predreadnoughts. Is there a date for release? E.g., 1 week hence; next month; this trimestre; this semestre; in summer; in autumn? this year?
  7. I am playing PvP. I would also like to go and play PvE. Would anyone please tell me, if I put in a player name and nation in PvE, will I lose my name and nation in PvP? Or, will I have two different names and nations (or the same), one in PvP and one in PvE?
  8. Nothing's changed, by the look of it. Still not a playable game. I'm waiting for it to be released still! I bet there is only one developer working part-time. It's a phenomenal failure. I'll look in again in a couple of months.
  9. The prices are higher now than they ever were. No reasons it looks like. Just make life hard instead of enjoying playing. I see that this game will continue to be unattractive and have at the most 500 players for a few hours a week in-between playing other games.
  10. What are the positives of 1 durability?
  11. I would like to see increased durability returned. A single durability is too fragile to risk PvP and sometimes also in PvE combat. It's just too costly in time and resources. The old system wasn't perfect. It made the costliest ships, the 1st rates too risky to play. A more balanced and simple system would be to allow 3-5 durabilities to all ships.
  12. I have changed clan to one which is English-speaking in the French nation. This means that my base at Fort-Royal is 4 hours sailing from the clan base at Nouvelle Orleans where I would need to buy an outpost to take part in clan operations. The huge sailing time is one thing that cannot be a favourable aspect of this game as it is now. The second thing is that at any moment during that necessary sail, you can get attacked and sunk, and have to do the whole sail all over again. Another aspect of the game that is negative. The third thing is that you have no way of knowing where you are when at sea, because the old grid with longitude and latitude has been inexplicably removed. A third aspect of the game that makes it less sell-able. I am sorry to say, but I have had this game for some years now, I would not buy it in this condition, whereas when I bought it, it was fun and exciting to play.
  13. I would've thought that 3) being able to change the name, would not be difficult, given that there are only 500 players left and only a percentage of these might want to change their captain's name. It would be easy to do a survey to ascertain how many.
  14. 1) When will the game be finally released? 2) Will current players keep their ships, resources, gold, rank, crafting level? 3) Will there be the possibility to change the name of my captain? (I have a different name in Naval Action Legends than I have in Naval Action. I would like to have the same name in both.)
