Present rulebook states, in relation to Empty Bottles: - to find Empty Bottles, captain must enable Fishing, by use of the Fish button - Use of a Empty Bottle will reveal the exact location of a ship wreck - only one Empty Bottle Wreck can be active at any given time per player - wreck contains a unknown weight in cargo, to be retrieved of: gold coins, materials for refits, a book/refit, resource/trade good - retrieving the wreck cargo requires the entire weight to be transported - all or nothing gameplay - only that player sees the wreck, no one else ---- My suggestions to change Empty Bottle Wrecks mechanic: - as soon as Empty Bottle is used the~wreck spawns - player-user knows the exact location of the wreck - marker in his own map - Wreck model ( not location ) is visible and accessible by anyone in the OW - the same way as the Treasure Fleet wrecks - if they happen to pass by in the area. - any player can Explore the wreck and take just part of items or all items, at player discretion - empty wrecks ( all the cargo taken ) disappear from the world immediately - Mark disappears from map if it gets emptied - wrecks with some items left stay on the world until the next maintenance. they are de-spawn on maintenance. Pros: - chance encounter with shipwrecks Keeping eyes open during a sail can get rewarded. Discourage AFK sailing - urgency of retrieval of the (unknown) goods - bottle user knows location, but others may pass by it if player waits too long... Cons: - it is no longer a individual player mechanic - might provide more reasons for players to quit - any type of ship can access - no more "All or nothing"
