  1. I think it'd be a sound idea to create a sub-forum for general discussions in 'other language' - but giving special treatment to a language as small and insignificant (For the NA community) as Catalan seems over the top. Given that there's a fairly large chinese player-base I'd say they should have a much higher priority.. The same is the case for the Scandinavian community who are often treated as having just one language and in this case is without a subforum (Denmark-Norway and Sweden are even in-game as seperate nations..). Furthermore, I bet the vast majority of Catan speakers are perfectly capable of communicating in either Spanish or English and a sub-forum would only serve to alienate and distance the minor Catalan group from the rest of the NA community. In that case I'd like to request the creation of a Faroese sub-forum as that is officially recognised in the Kingdom of Denmark at the same level as danish. Hardly an argument for the creation of a sub-forum here though
  2. https://www.aos.ultimateadmiral.com/ Scroll to the buttom I downloaded and played it yesterday for around 15 min. So far it seems good, but with limited gameplay available at this stage (Alpha/Beta), don't expect anything big just yet. Will there be seperate sub-forums for those of us who wants to provide feedback?
  3. I’m sorry to break it to you but that’s just not true.. though it was not the preferred material, frigates were routinely built of fir by multiple nations and carried 18lb cannons and bigger, you need not look further than the Endymion-class ships. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endymion-class_frigate What would be interesting to see though is a simulation of real life maintenance costs. Since there is no maintenance on ships ingame, this could be done by greatly increasing repair costs on light ships and making repairs cheaper on oak based ships. This could potentially simulate the increased maintenance that comes at the cost of building vessels on the cheap. This will also greatly decrease the speed bonuses achieved with light woods since they’d have to carry 2x more repairs. I can agree to limit 3rd to 1st rates to non fir/cedar type woods, but there is no historical basis for not allowing the use of fir on frigates.
  4. That makes no sense If modding is possible in this game then the developers already know. It will have absolutely no impact on whether France and/or Spain will be playable. I'm not requesting a feature so don't worry about me blocking your spanish dreams , with modding available you may even be able to add Spain to the game yourself. A game such as Naval Action is moddable, but your options are limited due to most of the data being stored on the server.. seeing as this is a Single Player game, there is no reason not to open the files to the public. It's basically a yes/no question.
  5. Will modding be possible? and if so, what areas of the game wil be moddable? One feature that'd I'd personally love to have is community made ships. I really enjoy modelling and would appreciate being able to put my own ships to sea.
  6. I do not believe that you should be able to choose the weather conditions on the OW, or in PvP/OW-PVE battles. But I see no harm in PvE'ers getting to choose their own weather in missions. If a feature doesn't hurt my gaming experience but improves the experience for others, them I'm always for it
  7. The developers have decided to make a much needed wipe, this has left every player with only 50k, future wipes are very likely to happen so try not to get too attatched to your items. Good luck out there! Safe sailing
  8. Looks like the game I've been waiting for since Age of Sail II: Privateers Bounty - Thank you gentlemen
  9. For the first time the NA community seems to agree on something; the Connie is a 4th rate. Interestingly enough it is also the only purpose built 4th rate in-game (correct me if I'm wrong) - I see absolutely no reason to make it a 3rd rate.
  10. Wouldn't it be wise to leave the material quality out for the creation of base stats in-game? In my opinion it should be so that an Oak/Oak Bellona in-game has similiar stats to a Live/White Constitution.. In real life it would be a true nightmare scenario for a ship like to Constitution to go up against a Ship of the Line built with the same quality of materials as she was. And I'm fairly certain that a regular Oak built british 74-SotL would devastate the USS Constitution. EDIT: On a completely different note: do we even need rating in-game when we have BR?
  11. I certainly see your point, but I'd fear that the opportunity for a little PvP on the PvE server could make some players make the jump from the PvP to PvE server.
  12. I really think you've done a great work with the recent patch, but there are things that I'd definately like tweaked. I have to say though that it's hardly fair to compare the suggestion put forward by @Vile Executioner to features you have already implemented that has no real alternative for players. Please do not take this the wrong way, however: Claiming the new ROE it is a great feature because it's used by every player is a bit far fetched when that is the only way you have left us to play the game we love personally given the choice between the old ROE and new ROE, I'd certainly chose the old one because that provides more safety for me as the attacking party. It's all a work in progress though, we'll see how things develop.
  13. I would love it if the ROE could go back to what it used to be - but maybe the new system just needs to be tweaked (I'm not sure that can fix it though). An LGV should not be able to get reinfrocements if attacked by a frigate, but I can see why a Brig would need reinforcemnts when attacked by a SotL. The problem as I see it is that currently a small fast ship ship can tag a frigate and keep it in battle untill he's reinforced by his mate's fir/fir Bellona. EDIT: I forgot to ask.. what ship were you in? If you were in a Ship of the Line my experience is that the Endymion would be very easily demasted with the new system thus enabling you to get two kills instead of one.
  14. That's exactly what worries me too, I haven't seen it happen yet though - so I'm unsure of how serious the problem is, and if there really is a problem at all. I really liked the ROE we had before this latest patch, that's the most realistc option we'd be able to get when dealing two "worlds/dimension". No frigate captain would ever attack a merchant if it was possible for a Ship of the line to suddenly arrive out of nowhere. I understand that it has been done for gameplay purposes though.
  15. If you ask me you should keep Global and Nation Chat free of "banter", not all of us is interested in reading it, nor do we find it funny. It has been seen on several occasions that "banter" spirals out of control and turns into very hateful arguments. Keep "banter" in Clan Chat and PMs where only friends can read it. There are lots of ways of joking in public chat rooms that does not involve having to resort to death threats.
