Little things you'd like to see

Recommended Posts

I would like to see the following:

1. The compass in the map selectable to default on or off. Presently its defaulted off and can't think of any time I want it off.

2. Books applied to ships remaining with the ships when they are in the fleet. If you must they could be disabled when fleeted but presently I have to reapply them every time I take a ship out of the fleet.

3. Interiors modelled on ships, this would be very atmospheric. This is done on the Connie to a limited extent but some ships are very poor on interior detail. In particular, the 1st rates which don't even have fully modelled cannons.  This could be selected on or off for those with poor performance.

4. The ability to move around the deck, I know the home key allows you to simulate this to some extent but makes no allowance for pitch and roll. Commanding from the deck would make a nice challenge. This could be selected on or off for those with poor performance.

5. Better storms with the possibility of ship damage.

6. More crew and marines in battle and out. This once again could be turned on or off it a player experienced a performance impact.

7. The ability to select different ships of the same type, for instance, I would love the L'Orient name with the appropriate stern and bow figure. I would be happy to get this a DLC that I could apply any time I made an Ocean-class ship. Since the ship model, handling exists already this wouldn't require a huge amount of work I would think to implement.

8. Better zoom on the map with clearer indication around islands of where the port facilities are.

9. Open world crew even if they were stationary would be nice.

10. Better modelled towns which are at a better scale. There is some variation now but not much.

11. Points of interest around the islands which would be recognisable.

12, Crafting levels above where they sit now which would give some better chance of gaining purple of gold ships.

The ability to be able to swap from Main ship to Fleet ship in OW. You would be required to come to a Stop and then initiate the transfer. This would then take a small amount of time.

I don't know about anyone else but I am fed up with having to re select my ship knowledge books if i swap which ship is Main with one of my Fleet ships when in port. It would be nice if the ship kept the ship knowledge books in place while in fleet.

Would like the ability to see what cannons i have on board when in OW and battle and the ability to throw them overboard to increase speed when being pursued.

The ability to be able to throw cargo over board when in battle to lighten ship and increase speed when pursued.

Add Portugal to the nations. They can have a starting Capital at Santo Tome de Guayana down in the SE corner of the map which is closest  to northern Brazil.

If the enforced coalitions go ahead, Portugal should be allied with GB along historical lines of the Napoleonic Wars as Admin has stated for other nations.

At the moment I miss a working Kopas in the PORT UI  to see how the wind blows.

especially when you are looking and choosing for a mission in some direction.

Indeed. I would like just flags on the port docks showing OW wind direction.

we make guns and put them on the ships.

  and we have powder  upgrades

 

why don't we make balls for in the hold for the guns

and why don't we make powder for in the powder room

 

just adding another dimension to the game ...

Blockade mechanism. With the Patrol or something with the circle but Auto join, we just throw ships in the blockade group and leave like a port and its set.

Someone probably has Already mentioned it. But Increase the doubloons stash limit. with current price's it's really annoying jumping 10 times between ports to move 10k dubs at a time.

or like in my case i build an academy and now im blody stuck in the damn port. <-- Really annoing

Dump crafting and economy altogether, focus on pvp on pvp server, far to much grinding to get into game as a new player, Economy should be as result of team actions . not grinding by solo players.

Use same game model like  IL-2 Great Battles. I have no problem investing in a game that's good (I have spend hundreds and countless hours on good games that I keep coming back to play and replay).

No one likes to have to grind like in a free to pay game.

Make economy about territory conquest by nations, more team focused as in the port battles is great as should be main focus and expanded upon (this is they way to go, group combat is far more fun). Mindless sailing is plain boring and not fun, and you have to do this to be able to afford anything or replace anything lost. Current economy is very tedious to build. This aspect of the game is not fun and will put off new players.

For example resupply ports could be a great use of pvp and group combat.... (this type of thing is what game badly needs, just an idea for economy focused around combat)

Sort out the documentation , is very poor and very dated, far to much "how does this work, what does this mean"? too hard to work out stuff currently.Don't make a game that's hard to get into, big no no for any game. Game has a lot of depth that is buried and confusing to work out.

Lot of great potential in this game that's not done.

Community is good, combat is good (when you are not ganked all the time)

Try and think or perspective of someone who has never played this game, what do they need... will they enjoy lots of tedious sailing..., how easy is it to get going and find information on how to play (current, and not painful to hunt down that's outdated and virtually nothing from developer.)

This game is not going to keep people playing , just a small number of hard cores , game needs more players, If I'm wrong numbers of players would be much higher.

Selling DLC on an unpolished game is not a good idea, especially when some of it should be part of game.

Aspects of this game are really good,  just are not  enough (to outweigh the tedious sailing , required to build your economy to keep me and other new players interested.

I'll come back in 6 month and look again. With current model this game will die  a slow death.

Fair points I think, but a lot of it is fixable which is good. However crafting and economy is an important part of the game that needs to be in or else what is the point of PBs. I agree these should be clan-focused or at least slight higher level player things to do, as it does require a lot of commitment, and newer players should be coddled a bit more. The first like...10 hours of game play you should never have to sail in the OW for more than 30 min and you should be informed of the progress you are making  (rewards for ranking up). I also hope they bring back the fleet combat missions where it was you and a large group of AI vs another large group of AI. It was an early and awesome taste of what is achievable in the game eventually (and provides ample opportunity to rank up quickly).

A roadmap. And before I get corrected by Admin (as he did last time by pointing out that "lol look there is a roadmap open your eyes") I do not mean a "first half of 2019" post, but rather a real roadmap, a long term roadmap, the real thing, with milestones and stuff.

Don't know bout the others, but I was expecting the "S2 2019" beginning of June. We're mid July and there's still no sign of activity. I would have been fine even with a post saying something along the lines of "hey guys now that the game has hit release and that there's no major issues preventing you to play we're gonna take a 2 months break to enjoy seksi summer time and will be back in august with more news". Instead, we got silence.

Maybe already mentioned but, make the battle instance more alive. 

Pleas Add;

- some static things on the deck

- some officers, marines and sailors on the deck. Static or animated doesn’t matter but something?

it looks really empty on the top deck’s

- give the guns recoil, and let them be runned out when reloaded. And ditch the enemy’s reloading and reloaded guns UI

Hello! Pretty new on forums!

One thing i would like to sea is that enemy players in PvE server is removed and we can see their name, message/ trade/ invite to group like they are part of our nation. It's a peaceful server so calling them enemy players may kinda ruin the experience xD

When it comes to games like Naval Action, I believe the little details are important. Whilst I love seeing sailors walk around the decks of the ships and operate the cannons, I want to see a bit more of a variety in uniform and duty. Perhaps a Captain manning the wheel. 

- Recoil to cannons when fired.

- Greater amount of men on the top decks to bring more life to the game and battles.

- Nerf the Wasa. Raise its BR and reduce it's thickness and speed. It's basically the perfect ship right now and there's a reason why some will fill entire port battles with just that ship.

- Bring the Connie and United States back to 4th rates. They are very outclassed by the other 3rd rates and they don't belong there at all.

- Buff ships that have no good use in the game right now such as the Rattlesnake Heavy, the Cerberus, and the 3rd rate.

- Increase the size of the capital zone for ports that have land covering up most of it. The one around Gustavia is nearly useless.

lets not blind ourselves - Wasa needs an adjustment. I'm not saying a drastic change.

slight change in BR. probably 450.

Increase doubloon cost to 3,000.

Reduce doubloon cost of 4th rates by 50%.

 

the Wasa destroys any reason to sail a 4th rate.

Better surrendering/trading mechanics. For example, give up your cargo, save your ship and the ability to trade with other players on the world map.

Haven't read through the entire post but I'd like to see an ability to enhance upgrades.

For example turning Northern carpenters into Northern master carpenters. For an extra doubloon fee + the book.

Being able to salvage cannons from ships/change cannons at sea from hold. Moving cannons around at sea seems like something that could be done. Instances this would help:

- PvP zone stealing someone's carros and ditching meds

- AI farming, see a Enemy Player, and having the ability to change from full carro-loadout to longs to engage a player effectively.

Ability to stop reloading specific decks (like we already can do with broadsides using F5) to enable better crew management. Also, an option to powder-load cannons only, keeping them at half-full reload cycle until a type of projectile is chosen. I know you can sort of do this now with proper timing,  but having the ability to just have cannon crews reload to the half-way mark and then choose the type of round would be nice.
