1st Big content patch information.

Will we be able to crew broadsides independently or will it be a balanced distribution allways?

I really hope that we can crew specific broadsides as you say, and even specific decks. If I start losing crew (or if I'm short on crew to start with) I certainly want to focus on using my biggest and strongest guns instead of wasting crew on loading the small guns on the weather deck.

Speaking of different decks I also hope that we'll soon be able to load different shot into different decks, so that I for example can change to grape or chain on the top deck and keep ball in the gun deck.

Patience is the greatest virtue! 

Devs, take your time get it right.

I have lots of patience as the game is beautiful in its current state.

I agree that they should take their time! escpecially with a sick admin. But I was wondering, is there any news on the trader ships and what trader ships will be released? and will they be released this update or on a random update in the future? :)

 Not a clue on the different shot type, though it would be very useful, but as for the focusing on a specific deck, that's pretty much already in. At present of course you can hit f1 to f4 to select or deselect gun decks, but with the more dynamic crew management, guns not in use should, in theory, not need crew. I have no guarantee that this is true of course, but it at least lends hope to all the post captains on constitutions out there right now.

However the existing mechanic should not be the same as for toggling what deck is crewed. Right now you might toggle decks on and off simply because the guns have different ballistics and you need to change your aim for each deck fired.

The trick to making time fly is to work long hours. Think of all the money you could earn working rather than waiting for the patch to drop ;)

I do hope this also concerns the AI too, because the turn rate and speed of the AI Constitution and AI 3rd rate are just ludicrous as it is now.

Removing the fire deck option does not sound very good, as has already boarded is very simple and has few options. I would like more options for a variety of processes. But on the other hand, I initially assumed that when the enemy team becomes Defence - it's time to press the "throwing grenades." How times can change the rules of the game so that the grenades instead of FDG were countermeasure for def. In my understanding, the remaining options Contra ideally complement each other. Muskets work well against grenades, grenades against the defense, protection against an attack, the attack against Brace, brace against grenades - full circle, everything is simple and clear (though I would not give up 10+ different teams).

What's black magic voodoo saying about today's release? I have a good feeling! 

 

I'll ask my personal psychic about it, he's always right...

...

...

... He says "Patch will be deployed today... Or it will not."

Just because I didn't mentioned it doesn't mean I don't know how to work manual sails, you can keep those haughty comments to yourself.

And It's actually because the AI can still outturn me and yet also outrun me despite the use of manual sails that I'm commenting on this.

 

I'm all for the reduced performance of big vessels like the Constitution and higher described in this patch. But the AI should get the same treatment to at least keep a statu quo in the missions.

It's already quite frustrating to deal with the same ship as your in a mission except for the part that they are as manœuvrable as a Snow,

Im so glad someone else read that. When i saw that article i felt so bad for all the parents who are going to have the plug pulled on them or put into nursing home and turned into soylent green because the kids dont want to be bothered to take care of them.
