some 9 pounder frigates moved to rank 6 ( La Renomee, Cerberus ) some 24 pounders frigate moved to rank 4 ( Leopard, United States, Constitution )    

Can we have a thing that shows us, what books we currenty have applied to the ship at sea?

We actually implemented a lot from community feedback.  What about this?       Its just from the first page of this topic. All of these were implemented We are curren

Ships Remain in game for 5 min instead of 10 min after you log out of the game.

 

Yes, I agree with this - I left with nobody around and came back with no ship dropped off in a strange neutral port - lucky I was able to repair my basic lynx for ZERO gold and skedaddle! but sadly it lost a durability.

 

Now I learned to return to port before log out - but you really should be able to log out in the middle of the wide ocean!

While playing France, I'd like to have the choice between :

- the tricolor flag (the french flag since 1790-1792, that is after the french Revolution, with blue, white and red stripes), the present one in NA,

- and the white flag (that is the french royal flag before 1790), my favorite !

By the way, the modern use of the white flag as a surrender / peace flag only dates from the Hague Convention of 1899. 

About the white flag : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_flag

 

NB : remember that time period is something like 1600-1830 and more likely 1690-1820.

I would like to see FLAGS in OW and a spyglass to see the flags on those ships not close enough, instead of the 'click hail feature'. I would have saved myself alot of 'hail clicks' if this was a feature and would make it easier to keep track of what goes on in the OW and 10 times more immersive:)

•When ships are demasted ,masts are still afloat or can still be partially attached to ship.

•Floating broken bits shot off ships

• crew transfer to other team members when sinking.

•When a ship is hit in tge game the guns seem to have the same colour as wood when hit that doesn't look good.

•Sails burn differently than wood

•Glass at stern can shatter

•ships can have multiple explosions

•Amount of crew dead and injured shown

•percent crew shown

•building a ship by selecting different features. A lot of different features for example choosing stern type between 50 chioces and baloconies stern galleys and every single detail.That would be amazing. Keep the paint schemes uniform and normal though. ( no pink ????)

Although the Hague convention dates back to aprox. 1900 the White Flag`s meaning as Flag of Truce was common, it even dates back to the Roman Empire, was used in the european Middle Ages and is recorded in Hugo Grotius' foundational work on international law (1645)

I suggest adding the white flag sprangled with Fleur de Lis as second flag for France.

Whales , dolphins and Seaguls , Named pirates and nations admirals of the era as rare spawns with unique loot drops, A Hardcore mode for pirates, one life and only able to use captured ships.

 

The ability to turn OFF enemy chat, im tired of hearing people cryin/whinging already and it's only alpha.

I am ready to see some odd and unusal "cargo" when I capture a Trader's Brig or Snow - -- - and some Indiamen!

 

A cargo of copra - sell for $3,000

A cargo of Gunpowder!!!!! - sell for $10,000

A cargo of GOLD!!!!!! - well, just keep that.

A cargo of rum - ahh the dilemma -- should I sell or should I keep!

I would like to see a real swallow-tailed Danish naval flag!! The Danish navy has never sailed - and never will sail - with a square flag :-) Just a small thing - but nevertheless :-) and I just want to add that i really like the game!

A glow of lamp light from a port town on a foggy night, twinkling lights on a crisp night...

 

So far I have only seen haze during the days and mist at night - what's this about "crisp"

I would love the feature of using flags to show partys.

 

For example you could use the commodore flag for a party leader.

This would be indeed realistic And other players could see there is a group.

 

Guild or clanleaders could get admiral banners. So you can focus on the leader in the fight, like it was in some battles.

I would like to see a fleet of NPC's represented by more than one sail - perhaps if there are two ships in the NPC fleet, show two sails (sprites) and if there are three or more just show three sails.

 

It would be more immersive ....

Hi, said this before in this and other threads so sorry if it's 'banging on'

1 ability to load decks with different ammo - you can enable/disable gun decks with the F keys so why can't wo adjust load out in the same way? e.g. Weather deck guns with grape main gun deck with double shot, thereby maximising the calibre/ range of your cannon.

2 A reliable and accurate compass. The small one as is to show wind direction/ sails/ mast setting is fine but rubbish for nav, why can't we have a tape style compass at the top centre screen as in some flight Simms ? This could be much more detailed to enable more precise headings.

3 purely cosmetic, in OW gun ports closed as opposed to open and empty.

That only effects global chat i belive, i had it off but could still see enemys /all chat in battles, which sadly makes the game less enjoyable for me, i really am not intrested in hearing enemy captains brag or whine,i really hope they give people the option.

I think that a distress flag would be interesting, or the ability to fire a signal gun would be nice. In addition when it comes to merchantmen in the game I believe that there should be some ability to induce them to haul down their colours as opposed to the whole, decrew or sink option. Should you kill their escort then perhaps they are more inclined to part with cargo without the dramatics.

I wish to be able to instruct my hired captains to stay in port

How about making the 'waiting to exit' dialog a bit smaller so we can still look round for enemies?

A bit of floating debris in battles would be nice

If I was sinking in a battle I'd like be be able to call up my AI to come alongside and transfer over to them - Admirals often moved between their ships

The option to click on a port to identify it - and not have huge names floating over it.

In game rank removed from the hail and battle tab. 

Clan allegiance added to hail...or better yet a clan flag or banner that can be flown in addition to the national flag.

 

The ability to use your repairs on another allied ship in an instance - Mabie using the same distance and speed as the boarding prompt. but don't allow fore aft rigs to give reps to square riggers.

Give everyone 24 ai ships so we have full 25/25 battles no ganking is poss as only 1 player each side can join and you will never have to fight the battle yourself as you can all hide behind your meat shield until it is safe to close and small arm fire the survivors in the water.....!

 

 

NO to AI fleets, Naval action not robotic action!!!  :P

Just for testers morale, I want the other instances we had in sea trials brought back in. Getting visually burned out on this current instance.

 

What would be exceptionally nice would be several new instances made and have them match the time of day and weather (storms!) of the OW. However at this point I would take different instances even if they were random.

Hopefully at least one more instance can be released next patch.
