Hi everyone I just joined this game today via Steam. I love the idea of this game and have always been interested in the navy from this time. I read the Hornblower books when I was in my early teens - and that is a long time ago. Anyway my problem is with the view when I am sailing. I have a fixed view of my ship from the side as standard. Hitting the Home key (Pos1 on my German keyboard) shows the ship sailing away from me. Soon after it disappears unless I hit Home again when I get a partly mobile view of the ship from about the angle when I hit Home again. Hitting Home again cycles me back around to the start view - fixed. Also I can only steer in the fixed view. Pressing A or D while in the second or third view does nothing. All this makes it very difficult to steer and to see where I am going. I have seen some YouTube videos where the view is changed beautifully in any direction, from above the side etc. It looks like with just a movement of the mouse. Can anyone help me here because at the moment I feel I have wasted my money and am not having the fun experience I hoped for. Thanks for any help BlueSailor
Hello there Captains and hopefully developers! After playing for some for two weeks im loving the game. Sometimes when in close combat i really wonna have a battle view as seen on the picture below, not so much for pression firing, but for being for aware of what going on around me. The way i too controll the camera now is alright, i like it when shooting far away, but when i got ships on both side and maybe front and back, i would like not to press right all the time to change cannon side and zooming in and out while the iron ball fly around, but just using the mouse to look around and fire. The way you could controll this is kinda the same as now just without the rigth clicking all the time. The white lines in the water is the same and if the aiming bar is green you can fire the way, but if it turn red you cant turn your cannons that much. And firing whould be the same, space for one ball, left click for the whole side. the way you change side would be simply looking the other way. It might even work for firing forward and backwards too Some ship like the Surprise hav a mast right in the front view, so if you could slide the camera just a bit form side to side with the arrow keys, Slide to the side More random pics for flavor taster And of curse if the rutter turn too, that whould be great, hope you like my suggeston EDIT : i just got a big ship (the bellona) , and found out that the rutter in in a very bad place for a good over view, but i could imagion standing on the quarterdeck insted and looking out
Can we pls pls pls pls have a shortcut to switch between broadside firing positions, Bow and Stern chaser positions. Arrow keys, number pad keys, player set. Any would satisfy the need to quickly turn your head to look over and take control of your gunners. time after time moving from a broadside view to stern or bowchasers fails to achieve the desired result and either falls back to the view you were on or goes too far and slips to opposite broadside, that elusive ship crossing your stern or bow avoids those cannons being fired as you only have a couple of seconds to react.
