Little things you'd like to see

I'd like the option to remove DLC flags on my end. That you want a special flag is fine, just don't force me to see it if I don't want to.

Nope!  You will see whatever flags and paints I dang well want to show you!  :D Except if they bring in fugly "clan flags".  Those could have an "out" option.

I think this would be the easiest coding fix ever: I'd like the crew to cheer not only when you put an enemy in shock but also when you sink them.

IMO, it looks stupid to see a mixed fleet of french royalists and french republicans fighting vs HRE ships.  I think it would be better if I could chose what flags shows up on my ''client side''.

As a relatively new player (Lieutenant Commander) but long-time fan of the era, I’d like to see fewer and more realistic pathways to upgrade a ship.  For example, I find Modules such as the figureheads unrealistic.  Since when was a ship’s figurehead able to increase speed or cannon penetration (except in sailors’ imagination)?  The existing Modules fulfil this role well and seem more historically correct.

I also wonder if, as Books represent a type of “knowledge” or “experience” in-game (offering similar benefits to upgrades) — such as would have been offered by experienced petty- or warrant-officers or officers — whether these could be bought using eXperience Points?  This would create a trade-off for the player between promotion to the next rank or acquiring Books as an alternative to Upgrades, which need to be bought or crafted. 

I suppose I’m in the minority, but I would like this game to become more simulator-like (but not too simulator-like) and a little less “gamey”.  Having said that I’m absolutely enjoying it and looking forward to exploring it further (as its complexity means I’m still learning about almost every aspect of it).

From your mouth to Gods ears...  but I think that ship has sailed....  They tried an "officer-based" system before, which was pretty good.

But for some, the "mods" are like quests...  and people love quests!

I would like to see that if you are being tagged by one player and it is timing down you cannot be tagged by a second player from the same country.  What good is evading a tag if another player can start a countdown you don't see until you are pulled into combat.  ONE TAG AT A TIME PLEASE !!!!

 

DOUBLE TAGGING IS ESSENTIALLY A CHEAT IMHO,  that lets you disallow the cool down timers.

 A small thing i would like to see is an info button when you get a ship.

Basically information on the real life ship the ship is based upon, so many people in chat ask about what was Wasa or whatever ship based upon.

I'd like to see the capitals be capturable. Once a nation has lost all it's 'normal ports' the currently uncapturable ports should become capturable, and then after those are gone the capital should be capturable. Weren't prussia and russia added to test how a nation functions with out a capital? And it seems to work fine, so I see no reason why I shouldn't be able to capture Charleston.

A few changes that would improve the game for me immediately:

1) A way to remove Books from the relevant slots on ships rather than just overwrite them (this would retain them in your "library") and to delete Books from your library, even at the cost of losing the benefits provided (as you've already "Used" the Book).  I guess this is like "forgetting" knowledge.  My library has a number of Books in it that I "Used" early in the game when I didn't know what I was doing that I'd now like to remove to tidy up my library and simplify Book selection based on those that actually benefit my style of play.

2) More skins available in the Painter DLC, including 7th and 6th rates. The current selection is quite limited (good if you use the specific ship) and presumably relatively easy to produce artwork assets.  It would make the DLC more effective and worthwhile in my opinion (I've purchased it).

3) A gradual way of identifying ships based on visual distance (e.g. taking account of distance, weather conditions, intervening terrain features and use of spyglass).  This would reflect the historical reality that a ship would spot sails with the hull still below the horizon and need to monitor it to ultimately identify it as it came into range.  A scale based on visual range parameters could be used like: Unidentified sail > Brig-rigged ship > Mercury > Russian Mercury.  This would make players a lot more wary of unidentified targets until they knew what it was and its likely intention.  Also, to be consistent this methodology should apply to AI and human players, rather than full identification of AI targets and no more than "Enemy Player" (and you have to identify the ship type yourself) that we currently have in-game.

Cheers

They told us what after 30 days of dlc in the game we will get +30 (estimated , i don't remember the real number) paints on all the ships .

Now that we can upgrade the ports... Could we dredge up shallow water ports (or for a short time period), as an investment? Or a Dredger DLC?

The 3D model of the Pandora displays the swivel guns even if they're not fitted.  I like how Naval Action shows 3D models of longs, mediums or carronandes on the gun deck(s) depending on your selection. It's pedantic but it would be nice if the swivels on the Pandora were shown or not shown depending on fitment.

I'd like to see Privateers as a faction that can operate under a Letter of Marque for a set period for a Nation. :)

If you get 10 deaths in pvp you can change the name of the ship that you use to get kills. Imagine the boat of redii, reverse liq with an epic name or an idiot name xd always whithout offended anyone
