    Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts enters testing phase

    Interested here as well. I love the big guns!

    Moderation rules

    Often the problem with locking a thread and leaving it up is that the content of that thread get spread all over the forums and require even more moderation. The moderation staff are purely volunteers - we do this to help Admin so that he has more time to work on the game and spends less time trying to fight forum-fires. Threads that are a pure violation of the rules will often get hidden instead of commented/locked - they usually serve as nothing more than a lodestone for bad feelings or discord to spread across multiple boards.

    Let's get back on topic please. I'm watching.

    Forum post deleted

    Admin didn't remove it, I did. I'll leave this one up to remind you that with few limitations, outside of Tribunal that discussion of moderation isn't permitted - it just leads to a crap show that wastes everyone's time. If Admin chooses to respond, he'll do so.

    To gank or not to gank

    Someone with more time (and a better memory) than I have today will need to respond.

    To gank or not to gank

    Because every solution that has been attempted (and there were quite a few attempts) caused more problems than they solved?

    Christian VII - what a beautiful ship!

    I didn't realize the current DLC ships had a labor hour based cooldown. That makes sense as well.

    Christian VII - what a beautiful ship!

    You are paying to skip time, not to get a superior ship. I don't like paid ships that are better than in game ships - they should have pros and cons just like the crafted ships. I also don't like paying for ships that are only 5 uses for example. A purchased asset needs to retain value or no-one will purchase it. The ship is pre-crafted as part of the "skip time" value. Perhaps it would be better to have a cool-down when the ship is destroyed instead of instant regeneration every 24 hours. Maybe 1 day per rating (inverted - e.g. a 6th rate has a 1 day cool down, 5h rates, 2 days, a 1st rate, 6 days). When the ship is destroyed, you have to wait the correct number of real world days before you can regenerate it.

    Insults in nation chat.

    And that's enough of that. Thank you for the heads up.

    JSON looking thing keeps showing up

    I'm using Chrome successfully, likely not Chrome.

    New patch and community.

    Everyone is listened to. Those that choose to flame, troll, argue, or post non-constructively in feedback topics (especially those that have been around and know better) receive brief breaks for wasting the developers time. You can see tons of posts that are critical of the patches and of various features that remain up and are being discussed. Claims that dissenting opinions are silenced aren't supportable given the evidence that can be immediately seen at hand.

    Atlantic coast shenanigans

    I'm not sure this rises to the level of tribunal, but I'll point it out to the Devs.
  14. Are you running Windows 7?

    Open world UI feedback (2018)

    My understanding is that differentiation for icons will occur in a future update. For now, using the search function is your best bet to quickly narrow down what you're looking for (I even do this in Windows to open files and programs that I want, I rarely use the windows application popup any more).
