  1. Sure, its a lot work, and NA is still in more early development phase. Anyway every 'Nation' absolutely same equipment? Then i don't need Nations, only playerbased guilds as factions. Why designing Nations if its only a phrase (or its only satisfying player-patriots)? Starting with a 'special' ship and have also later special ships does not mean that a dutch captain cannot sail a french-built ship. But building a ship in a dutch harbour should mean designing a Nations-design. We don't need so called historical or modern Nations if there are no single 'rules' for those. I am not dutch but if i
  2. I would also like also at beginning if dutch 'captains' get a 'small' dutch ship, french a french construction... and so on. Nearly for all Nations (and we chose Nations) its possible. Clear, NA is still 'under construction' and not a polished game, but not only as far away goal, more than a 'should/must be' as soon as possible to create. Same for all ship-types. Not only ww2 or ww1 games should have their 'real' national gear.
  3. Also Kurland hat schon Mitte des 17Jh die Kolonie verloren und war dann politisch bedeutungslos. Brandenburg hat die Ambitionen (da die Frau Kettlers Brandenburgische Prinzessin war und die treibende Kraft hinter den maritimen Geschäften) Kurlands für wenige Jahre geerbt. Also 'wenn' der zeitliche Rahmen einigermassen noch stimmen soll und nicht alles nach einem 'ichwillshaltso' sich abspielen, dann wäre Brandenburg tatsächlich eher mit seiner 'bekannten' kleinen Flotte passender, da hab ich vor einigen Monaten schonmal einen thread aufgemacht mit dem Hinweis, "nur zur Info", da ich nichts dav
  4. @ampaholic you are surely right, the distance is (at least for 'me' ^^) now much more important. Anyway i will learn it... again.
  5. Oh, after the last update i have not battled much, but i see, it seems i must learn now again to shoot. Shots of my broadsides going anywhere, but never where they should .
  6. The 'Victory' HP shows also the development of the Victory during the 18ct. Colour (also some fittings) of the ship changed from time to time. I give the link: http://www.hms-victory.com/restoration The stages of changes are listed there as: "As Launched 1765-1779" "Copper Bottom 1780-1799" "The Time of Trafalgar 1800-1805" and "Portsmouth 1817-1922"
  7. Man weiß ja nie, wie und was sich hier zukünftig noch entwickelt, aber momentan laufe ich unter der Niederländischen Flagge.
  8. In that phase of early development its for me not important if one nation is able to get friends... or foes if those momentary interests are to test the foundation of functionality in entire PvP battles. Its for my intension still not a game only testable early game mechanisms with sure (and thats a must be) functional gaming-models.... the ships which can be used, also still not finished in their functionality and the gameplatform. But its really today not more. What the hack now about weak nations or more powerfull? In three months NA still won't be a 'round' game.......
  9. Ah, i think you want an afterburner......
  10. .... you forgot '....of Paris'. So he 'sails' around the Seine....
  11. I hope really in Open World the goal for some success won't be only to get the heaviest ship also for 'single' fights, otherwise you will never have a chance against ....... the other heavy (line) ships. Such wonderful ships like that 'Venus' would only be a very 'nice' addition for the collection, a step to the next heavier one. So i pray NA will not be finally such a collection game, not heavier=better and so the only reason to play to get the most bulkiest ship.
  12. The collection of possible ships grows and grows. Thats absolutely great! Meanwhile i cannot say any more which 'beauty' i would like most.
  13. Salut, bin ja auch aus einem der Deutschen Lande, bei einer Flotte wären die venetianischen Schiffe recht nützlich, die Ende des 18.Jh zu Habsburg kamen. Gibts auch Literatur, in denen Schiffspläne drin sind, allerdings im Netz nur kleinste Auszüge. in den Büchern selbst sind genug Pläne......

  14. I also not dislike Elite: Frontier, taste is taste, but there exist other games. If i will read in 'news and announcements' something newer than third march '15 then i will get nosy again. *joke on* Momentary its obvious devs are for months in holidays, make nothing except relaxing, waiting for a wonder ....*joke off* Anyway since two months no official 'news' from devs, must mean factly the opposite from my sentence before. They work hard, harder and hardest for realising the open world. There is only one question for me, when open world is at a stage it can be tested by massive multi
