Hello Captains

Thanks for the beautiful pictures in this topic

Thanks  @z4ys and @Wind (long time ago) for interesting historical references on flag visuals during naval multinational parades.

Need your opinion which picture you like more

Grey

 

Blue

No pirate flags.

Therefore, two pictures are just awful :D

I prefer the blue picture (more lighthearted).

Update on flags… 

This is the first draft flag collection - will be available on steam somewhere by mid November.

Will there be a second/final draft posted some day ?

Looking at the French flags, I can see, from the first draft and the picture you posted today, flags for all the French historic periods of NA time frame : Ancien Régime, Revolution, Empire, Restauration. That's nice indeed. Thx. But the choice of the flags for the Ancien Régime bugs me a little (still from what I can see) :

  • the King's flag 
  • the beautiful red flag of the French galleys
  • the flag of the city of Calais (if I ain't mistaken : white with a small red cross on its top left corner)

But no white flag of the French warships ?

When sailing a 7th-6th rate or a frigate during the Ancien Régime, say La Renommée or whatever, I hardly see myself using one of these 3 flags.

Nice DLC however.

Looks nice but have one question will they be restricted to the nation that flew them?  Other wise it would be like having false flags in battle and could get a bit confusing if said a British players fly's the Spanish flag and a Dane player the US flag and a US player has the french flag.   I hate to restrict them but I think they should be restricted to nation of orgin, or how will they work in game cause if you only see them and every one else see's the generic flag than it won't matter, but if every one to see....like a clan all use one flag than would others see that one flag on that ship?

yes, we need the historical pure white flag for the french navy too.

 

@admin: it is probably possible to remove the white flag for neutral ships and those who surrendered in battle?

by replacing the use of the white flag for ceasefire/surrender (a use that doesn't belong to NA timeframe) with lowering the national flag (or, at least, its immediate disappearance) ?

I guess it needs some coding.

I think this one is a given, except for maybe pirates who could be allowed to fly any flag. Imagining a battle between GB and France, where the brits fly the french flags and the french fly british flags sounds nothing but cringy. Giving the level of historical accuracy and love for detail of the game, I hope the devs think the same.

yes. You could only use flags of your nation.

I prefer the blueish more. It has warm colors that reminds me of all the glorious NA moments while the greyish makes me sad.

Good to know, but I do think that concept of a false flag would be a very interseting perk for Pirates or even Privateers in game if we could ever figure out how to do it and not have it abused.

Grey - more of a feeling of foreboding, bad weather, and danger. The blue is pretty but implies more of a pleasure cruise. I vote grey.

Does that mean all flags will be in 1 Dlc for say, $15?

IMHO it would be better to make smaller packs. Per nation or even 1 dlc per Flag, say $1 per Flag.

And im voting for blue
