Any tips on preventing transport losses?
Epicpoint posted a topic in General DiscussionsI find when playing the campaign that the monthly loss of transports takes a huge drain on my budget even with max transport capacity and most taskforces set to protect. What am I doing wrong or what are some ways I can mitigate this problem? Thanks! Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
[Tips] One liners.
Hethwill posted a topic in Guides - development forumPlenty of games have this TIPS as one liners in the loading screens. Would be nice to see them in game also. Given it is just an idea we all can build into it, no ? And see where it leads. So let's do very concise one liners that can also be nice tips for newcomers and vets alike, no matter how basic they are. I will post a few examples: _____________________________________________________________________________________________ "You can hide all the chat windows, while sailing, by pressing the T key" --- "Reinforcement Zones allow to call AI support when attacked by enemies. Not when they invade your battles." --- "Reinforcement AI are support for the players. They are not replacements of the players." _______________________________________________________________________________________________ 'Trade ships can enter enemy ports' --- 'The wind will periodically change direction, in battle.' --- 'A battle stays open for 3 minutes if it is out of the reinforcement zone. Beware any player can join within this period. ' --- 'Expect sailing in a sailing game' --- Double tapping a rudder order ( A and D keys ) will hold it hard over until cancelled. ---
Tips for dealing with enemy skirmishers?
Bobby Fiasco posted a topic in General DiscussionsHi all, I'm early in my first ever UG campaign as the Union and I'm having trouble getting bogged down by enemy skirmishers when I'm on the offensive. They always seem to be pretty thick and can pin down my attacking units, either by distracting them or drawing their fire away from the units I really want to kill, or giving pesky flanking fire. I send out my own skirmishers to fight them but it never seems to be quite enough. Do you have any general strategies that you use to deal with enemy skirmishers? Do you just plow on through to engage the enemy's main body? Particularly I'm thinking about needing every brigade to fight confederate main line units in my front, but having multiple skirmisher units on my flank. Can I just not make that attack? Following advice, I have only infantry and artillery in my divisions this early in the game (just started fighting Shiloh). Can cavalry eventually kill these guys when I have it?
Low FPS Issue
DontTreadOnMe posted a topic in SupportHi there, been enjoying Naval action but there is one thing that really bugs me.. and that's my computers performance when playing Naval Action. Here's my computer specs, -8Ram -Geforce GTX 680 -AMD Phenom II X4 970 Processor (4cpu's) 3.5 ghz. -Dx 11 -20725mb available -Running a genric acer, monitor using 1920x1080 On average "small" games with only lets say 3-4 ships per a team the game runs fairly smooth going in between 30-40 fps (50 at the absolute max). Bigger games, like Trafalgar's I get about 15-35 fps (40 at absolute max). While this is not very low fps by any means, I get really sick because of the "sluggish" (lag) motion of the camera movements and all. Before you tell me to turn my settings lower I have! I've been messing with the settings constantly seeing little to no improvement, When running on all low/off settings I only get 5-10 fps more than I do running Ultra. Yes.. I have the latest Drivers and updates and I've already double checked to be sure. I've tried to tough it out but, its really frustrating once cannons start going off and the smoke and splinters drive my fps into the ground. It feels like a stop motion pirate movie .. (except I start to get sick from the the motion of the stop motion and action going on...) Anyways I cant afford any new equipment or graphics card( please don't tell me to "buy a new graphics card silly newb") and I can run almost any other game just fine with max settings and over 60 fps on some games hitting 100 fps but not this one. Is It just because its not optimized well or something to that effect, or is definitely on my end? I'm in a pickle and I'm no computer tech wiz by ANY means. Can anyone here help me out? much appreciated thanks (forgot to add, I play in window mode at 1920x1080 if that helps)
