  1. Damn I'm rusty as hell... need to make time to get back into this. I do miss it.

    Movie was alright but this scene, which ends the movie, was top notch. Scaled down of course, pretty faithful representation of the pike and shot era
  5. Napoleonic Anthem But quite frankly, I think I may have Royalist sympathies... how can you not after listening to this. One for the Spaniards
  6. Hispaniola was the original colony in the Spanish Main. So, yes, Santo Domingo was the first administrative center. That being said, by the time the game is set in, Havana had been the central/key Spanish port in the Caribbean for two centuries. From 1561 onward, all Spanish treasure fleets were to assemble at Havana. This had the effect of concentrating major economic and military resources in the city. By the end of the 18th century she was the third largest city in the Americas, behind Mexico and Lima, ahead of New York and Boston. Moreover, it was also a major naval and merchant ship building port, Santisima Trinidad was built there along with countless warships, treasure galleons and merchantmen. Point being, Santo Domingo and San Juan were major towns/cities but not the center of military and merchant activity for the Spanish Main. Certainly not from the middle of the 16th century onward. Cartagena and Vera Cruz were the assembling ports for the treasure fleets which then amassed at Havana before being escorted by the Armada back to Spain.
  7. Um, with all due respect, shouldn't Havana be the Spanish capital? It was THE prime Spanish port during the 16th, 17th and 18th century.
  8. It's a color/colour kind of thing. Both are right, depends on your flavor.
  9. What's with all the hate? All we want to do is rake.
  10. Except your logic is faulty. Especially concerning the two ships you're comparing.
  11. Your deductive reasoning or do you have evidence to back this up?
  12. My apologies. My brain turned the angels into angles and didn't spot them. Not much of an editor
  13. Wonderful news! Though I would have preferred the Temeraire or Tonnant as we already have two first rates, any Jacques-Noel Sane ship that makes it to the game is a good thing.
