Little things you'd like to see

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.

 

I'd say you are absolutely correct but am going to suggest an alternative. Just make the USS United States and USS Constitution 4th rates again. Also, if it has to be a 3rd rate the Connie needs a buff. Being tankier than USSUS isn't enough and the Wasa is still superior in nearly every way, when Wasa doesn't require a permit. I suggest increasing the gun-sizes on one of the decks (68lb carros over 42s should do the trick)

Remove permits for all ships below and including 4th rates. 

Add systematic permits, but not linked to any form of rng system,  for all ships above and including 3rd rates.

What are your reasons? Actually i like the permit system ... its a good way to reduce some ship types and give more diversity ... prelaunch it feels everyone was sailing endy or bellona ...

Who would sail a 3rd rate instead of a bellona If Not for permit?

My reason is simple. Only Wasas, Trincomalees and DLC ships can be seen in OW. Along with Surprises in shallow water area.

Remove permits to allow diversity. Maybe rebalance of some ships will be necessary too.

Trash wood! In my eyes there is no such thing. Still doing only fir and oak I have a lot of fun and get my occasional kills. Of course there´s only a little if no chance against a super pimped enemy of equal size. But well... my ships are cheap and easily replaced. Fun!

Agas, wapens, ingers, Essex, Cerberus are seldom too ... without permit craftable. Permit is balancing too ... balancing by price ... Same thing i decide If to put copper in my ship or Gazelle ... Question of money

Yeah but you use Fir/Oak ships? Or you build fir/fir and oak/oak ?

I speak about combos like LO(tank)/fir(speed) ... they just dont fit together ...

Strong port boni can annihilate the disadvantages of a weird wood combination. In the sum you may get a ship that is still better than crafter's choice ships, despite strange wood setup. I would in fact also prefer to chose woods for elite notes. Just that argument you used does not work.

Considering battle confusion is not an argument anymore since the introduction of DLC flags, I’d really like to hoist my own flag even when joining the side of a different nation. 

If alliances are in the work, the confusion would be even less ;)

Ability to see a player info which is in ignore list (right now right click - info does nothing)

As far as i remember - long time ago there was rank next to each clan member in the clan list - and now its gone (only curse/biggest? is shown). Is thats how it should be?

New UI for chat and clan details (it wasn't changed with all rest of UI and i'd like to see the same style there too. At least style, probably rewriting it fine too, but... Someone has any ideas on that?)

diplomatic - alliance system (per nation and or per clan nationwide)

flags in OW

correct flags on the ships (ensign, banners, streamers, royal standard etc.)

CLAN Flags (simplified) (create a menu where the clan leader can choose from some items to create a FLAG)

the ships look to empty (cleaned up) - put some stuff on it

trading system including stock exchange and banks

the sailing behave - that is all but not realistic when ships sails backward faster then forward or can turn as there is no physical law.

I'd like to see more contract slots opened in connection with being a port owner or lord protector for your clan for that port.

With your personal limited 10 contracts you very soon hit the ceiling, while the port ownership makes it necessary to have contracts serving this.

When you lose the port or the protector mandate, you would of course lose also additional slots for contracts again. This would be connected with your function, not your person.

--

Particularly when we see anything like what I suggested lately, about trade in that port causing growth or decline of said port.

--

EDIT: these contract slots have to be locked to that port, meaning, they can be set up only in this local shop, to avoid exploits. Make them 5x for smaller ports and 10x for the largest.

Remove Sextant.

Replace with an ability in map to triangulate by some means, e.g. visible land features, or an actual sun shot.

Show the shot type underneath the cannon icons.

Click mouse to change shot type instead of number keys.

Changing shot type means load that next, instead of scoop out the ball and reload.

Priority to a side, load that side first if shorthanded.

Start battle full sail as default.

Click mouse to change shot type instead of number keys. both options would be good :)

Priority to a side, load that side first if shorthanded. You can already do that by looking to 1 side and clicking F5 key to stop the reloading for that side

Start battle full sail as default. do you mean so you start at 100%? or that you wont have to click 4 times W key to setup to 100%? Dont think it would be a good change anyhow since you wouldnt be able to control your ship properly from the start

Honestly I like to try some weird combinations you´d never do in crafting. Nothing for the meta-perfectionists of course :)

Not when you are looking at the crosshair view, then you only see your current side.

That prevents loading that side ever. I want it loaded next after the good side is finished. Like if I 1222 I want the good side loaded tirst, but I don't want the other side turned off. I know you can micromanage it, but I that's too many view changes and keypresses when I am already barely able to keep up with all that is going on in a battle.

Yes, that. Higher level up you may not want full, but I have never had need for anything but full at start. Certainly can't think of how stop would be used.
