  1. Hi Ink, I have the confirmation of payment and account creation. but cannot find the email holding the code. It is possible I have accidentally deleted the mail as I have done a recent purge.
  2. HI, I have installed my Age of Sail onto my Desktop and wanted to also put it onto my laptop. I am at a loss where to go to download the client again. Could someone point me in the right direction or drop a suitable link in please. Thank-you Crankee
  3. Thank-you for the replies, and being patient with my double posts. Yes I will start with Age of Sail and pick up Dreadnought at a later date. Thank-you @Ink for clarification about permissible streaming content. Look forward to reviewing and playing as I go. Merry Xmas
  4. Thank-you for the replies guys. Much appreciated. Once the family side of Xmas is out of the way, I will set to working out how to plug all of my streaming kit together and hopefully start streaming in the next couple of days. It also Sounds like Age of Sail is where to start, being the closer to launch. Merry Xmas
  5. Hi Forums o/ Hi to anyone who knows me from way-back in my Naval Action career. (I have posted a similar topic in Age of Sail forum, apologies for doubling up but wan't sure which was most active) I'm interested in trying out Ultimate Admiral: Age of Sail and Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts. I have two questions. My first question is: Which of the two titles is more complete. My second question: I am intending to stream for the first time in the new year, using Twitch and would like to stream content for one or both titles. Could anyone link or in

  7. Hi All, Returning player after a long break away. There used to be an online or downloadable page/software that when you entered ship type/Wood type/Planking type the effects of those choices would populate the basic ship data such as new armour values, speeds, turn rates etc etc. I can;t remember its name and sadly no longer have a bookmark to its location. I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the file or web page so that I can theory craft builds before committing to them. Or if it is known the software is no longer current and unavailable let me know. Many Thanks
  8. I am late to this discussion and may have missed some posts. There is currently a game series called "NWS Steam and Iron" from nwswargaming.net. "Rule the Waves" is one of their games, a top down combat simulation where you run the navy of a nation (You can get sacked!) and fight fleet battles 1899 - 1925. Despite fairly basic UI and graphics the ability to choose whether you have historical ships supplied to you or to design from scratch all ships you use is awesome. There is a top down design format which allows you to place turrets, freehand draw superstructure. Decide on turre
  9. If you are going to have more fun as a different nation seems to me you just have to switch. We're all adults here (Well mostly) enjoy your game and hope you have more fun and less frustration in your new nation. Everything else tbh is just flannel
  10. I backup Lord Hoods post and others with the same view/knowledge. Would love to get rid of the muliple ranks and just use Lieutenant, Commander or Post Captain. Your 'reputation' combined with an 'expenditure' when recruiting would fill or paritally fill your crew requirement. Flag ranked officer would ultimately be on board a ship a Captain would command. The captain involved had the honourary added of 'Post' Captain which only applied when the flag offcier was attached to his ship. Reputation and expense would be a far better method of limiting crew numbers available. Greate
  11. I'm OLD not DEAD ! for that 3rd Double shotted broadside from your Santi into enemy Victory
  12. A pirate ship didn't necessarily need a large cargo hold, as it would capture the ship kill, maroon or similar the crew and take it to a location where they could unload it. whether that was in a port directly or transferred to another vessel and then taken to port.
  13. Crew mixture and animations. More crewmen and mixed animations, serving guns, sail drill, climbing shrouds, running to repairs.... officers on deck strolling, aiming to fire. Marines, manning sides and tops.
