Manilla Galleons

Recommended Posts

There is any chance to implement manilla galleons fleets when Pacific finally get open? Will be nice to try to intercept big and strong NPC fleets with lots of loots.

 

Btw, why dont implement too the great spanish armadas (armada de barlovento, armada de guarda, armada de la carrera de las indias, armada de nuestra señora de guía)? Right now, the NPC traders just dont worth nothing.

 

I know there is a huge effort to just get rid of NPC traders (and i really like the idea) but with the average pop of players it cant be done for a long time without break the game, because OW stills empty enough to do it.

The idea has been tossed around before, and the usage of galleons, fluyts, and other archaic designs are heavily debated.  I would like to see Manila galleons make it into the game, but it will depend on if plans for such are available.  More than likely you'll see a 4th rate of a design similar to the San Fernando being used instead.

first, the manila galleon does not traverse the game map, but the pacific...it goes from manila (phillipines) to Acapulco (mexico west coast) so you probably want to represent the "Flota de Indias" ...  Veracruz-cartagena-portobelo-habana-sevilla (europe)

 

Last flota de indias sailed on 1776, and there was no galleon on it of course.

 

As for the big armadas... I have seem some current IA fleets much powerful than those (3xsanti+3xpavel+15x 3rd rate...) ... putting some merchants in those fleets  and making its route previsible would make a great event for sure ...   on the other side as ports change sides that can be problematic...  but it could be done with a convoy to any european power (thats every nation except US)

It will be interesting a big large event like: a big strong fleet (AI TRADERS plus AI ESCORTS) in predicted routes; some of that ships can be lost in a storm and the main force continuing the trip. The wrecked ones can be put along the path or in certain are (BUT NO MARKER AT MAP), so players can choose to find the wrecks along the path or attack the main force (both with loot, but, of course, those who cap ships on the armada will have biggest loot- due to effort). That way, the event can be spread out in a larger area and everyone can have the chance to get something (lone players and combined ones).
