Customizable Figureheads

Recommended Posts

I believe this has been raised in the past.  I too would gladly pay for my own crest or figure head.

Whatever floats your boat....

 

But I was REALLY hoping this sort of juvi stuff stayed behind with PotBS.  Guess I set my hopes too high.  Didn't you warn me about that?  Think you did...  :P

I would love that too, but some people might find it immersive breaking.

 

Is it a custom feature ordered by the captains? We would have a good chance for customization then if thats true. :D

Just an idea, no word otherwise. And I wasn't thinking juivi, I was thinking different varietiants on classics. Especially if you're thinking of pirate. It would only really be noticeable by an opponent in a very close quarters scenario (eg, boarding).

It is not limited to figurehead, it could be scroll work or coat of arms:

"... The last example may well have been the sloop HMS Cadmus launched in 1903.[5] Early steamships did sometimes have gilt scroll-work and coats-of-arms at their bows. This practice lasted up until about World War I... "

So many routes with this... It could be unit based (insert proper word... Guild, naval, company, Clan... Player run group). Especially coat of arms.

As with all things, submissions monitored and screened.

Id like to suggest a choice of many figureheads to choose from in a cash shop, like rams, mermaids, birds, sea-monsters, and maybe ornate figureheads that take up your whole bow.

 

This will bring cash flow and make ships a little different if there the same ship, also the best part money, it affects nothing in game but brings accessories to make you look better than the competition!

To keep quality up, a maker might need a craftsman s permit... "royal figurehead maker, serving at his majesty's pleasure" License revoked at the first curly rainbow pony.

Sounds good.

 

Should be more a custom bragging rights thing - micro transaction plus achievements in game - than rather open to all at all levels.

 

This being said we should use from a collection setup by the dev 3d artists to keep it within reasonable bounds.
