    Bring boarding to a new level

    Full Manual Rudder Control

    I AM SPARTAC- wait no +1
  3. I would rather see the binary nature of boarding addressed than have triggering boarding easier. Going from sailing along next to each other to sails dropped full stop instantly isn't a realistic solution. The crew don't wait till both ships are completely lashed together to start fighting. Perhaps have ships in close proximity to each other up a small window to the right of the screen that allows some boarding commands while the two ships are still manouvering and sailing. For instance musket fire and fire deck guns (swivels) can be used any time the enemy is near, if crew are in boarding and enough prep is available. Grenades is possible at extremely close range, and attack requires the two to be lashed together. Some boarding commands can be tweaked, for instance "musket volley" can consume prep and damage crew constantly while active. Same with grenades, while "fire deck guns" would depend on the actual deck gun reload state.

    Cosmetic DLC! Take our money!

    I'll say it again, people will be perfectly willing to purchase DLC even if it offers no game play avantage. In Team Fortress 2 people pay real money to be able to turn themselves into pigeons and cover their rocket launchers in christmas lights. I'm sure they will pay for bow figures, sail patterns, and paint jobs.
  5. Malachi vs Malachy, A bunch of malarkey if you ask me. Only one ship rules the sea, And the pickle it do be!

    Wipe on release, 3-4 months?

    We've probably all heard the story/fable of the guy hitting himself in the head with a hammer "because then it will feel good when I stop!" That is skillbooks in NA. Getting skillbooks only feels fricken awesome because of how annoying all the time before getting them is.

    port reset

    Say it again for the people in the back, clan based RVR not nation based!

    Wonderful ship maker

    Boarding and DD Adjustment

    Its like switching from watching "Master and Commander: Far Side of the World" to "Pirates of the Caribbean 3". ...in about 5 seconds.

    Character rating for inside a nation

    Go read through the "great battle results" thread and tell me otherwise.
  11. I think it's a technical limitation not a deliberate choice.

    Classic Connie--Your Killing Us Here!

    Exactly, If the Constitution was "bow figure gazelle, bridgetown frame refit , and optimized rudder" the Endymion was "art of ship handling, copper plating, navy hull refit, and elite British rig refit" The bottom line is we can't tell how tough, fast, or agile these ships were, unless we want to build a mock up of the Endymion and start shooting holes in both her and the USS Constitution, after we have them race. Therefore, while these debates are fun and all, game design choices must be first and foremost about balance, and having a super frigate running around at 13 knots before mods or crew knowledge used would be broken (And highly suspect historically relative to the other ships in game). I wouldn't add more than 0.5kn to the constitution's speed, enough to outrun 4th rates but that's it.
  13. Making the Constitution a DLC and having the worse version available through regular means would illicit the same response from Americans that you would get from the Brits if you made HMS Victory a DLC and make Bucentaure available regularly. Only a million times worse because subtlety is not an American speciality.

    Union never attack: Battle of Antietam

    This just shows that the game does a great job of modelling McClellan's tactics. *Shots fired* Well, actually, no shots were fired because I thought the enemy is too strong for me to attack.

    Pirate Patch and Content

    I made a thread about exactly that a while ago ironically, it got derailed really fast though but i'll repost the section on pirates. May not be 100% cohesive because I got bogged down trying to edit it, but the gist of it is clear. The permadeath for pirates is extreme and would not be necessary for much of the rest of the system to work. Original Thread: Just open all the spoilers and read, I never learned how to do spoilers in spoilers properly.
