Patch 28 - Battle Ensigns - Flags Feedback.

Recommended Posts

What about the Flag DLC enabling us to choose also what false flags we carry. 

I join pirate side in a battle, then I get one of the unique DLC flags of pirates instead of the standard pirate flag. 

It could even be random, so you could spawn in with any of the Pirate flags, including the standard flag. 

I feel it's anticlimactic every time I join a fight with another nation and my shiny nice flag that I paid hard earned cash for is disappeared.

I love this idea.  :D

A little feedback regarding this flag:

aaa13ba078341d88c55ebb6fee08f475.png

 

It's referred to as the "Admiraal vlag" or Admiral flag, instead of 9 stripes.

Besides that, wonderfull job on the Dutch flags!

Captains

Please report issues with new battle ensigns and flags. Visual bugs, quality issues, technical issues and bugs, flag disappearing etc - everything goes here.

Not quite related to in-game issues, but...

It would be very helpful if the store page told me which flags are available for which nations. I dont see me (or anyone) investing money if he doesnt really know what he gets.

Um, are flags a DLC? I certainly hope not. We've been expecting flags/ensigns/banners for over a year. Also, can people please post images of all the nation flags available? Would be nice to see them all.

There was mention that they had so many extra they could put some in loot tables.

 

 

i just hope we keep them in the proper times.  It’s already bad enough we have nations that should even be in game other wise. I’m going to want a certain US Navy jack if we are going out of time for ships allowed.

We can change the flag in port. What about to let us change the flag in OW as well? Just like we have access to the journal at sea.

I just logged in again since quite a while (never checked out the Flags DLC in game before) just to find out that the variety of Swedish Flags is disappointing while pirates seems to have much for flags to choose from. 'Sverige national flag' and 'Naval Ensign flag' seem to be equal. Intended?

It would be also nice to see the available flags within Steam shop so I can check them before I buy them.

Despite of that... is there a chance that we can see the flag on our ship while in port? That would be super sweet. 

 

I'm wishing all of you devs and captains a good and healthy start into 2019.

Anyone can check them all. They are displayed on the DLC store screenshots.

But not what flag belongs to nation xy. Current visual display can put someone in mind that it's possible regardless of nation to pick one of those flags even dlc discription is more clear.

About the new swedish flags - Dear Devs!

The graphic performance of the Swedish flags, I describe as careless, haphazard and cheap. Instead of dealing with the history of Sweden in the Baltic region, one flag was blue, the other four flags from blue-yellow to blue-yellow more or less brightly designed. And: What a performance! One blue and yellow flag gets a little red field! This flag is available only from 1818 to 1843!  At this point my question: Are you still there? Where is the Swedish-Pomeranian (Pomeranian) flag, where is the flag of Swedish-Kurland (The red and white of the Duchy is sufficient to distinguish other Kurland flags), where are the flags of Aland or occupied Finland until 1815?

My request to the devs: Please work on graphic things more thoroughly and with more attention to detail! I hope the different ship-hull colors (payable) will be implemented soon. If you have not the ideas - ask your community that has been loyal to you for years!

Oh well, before I forget it: Please introduce a rookie area again, please remove the event zones and also the capital protection zones! Only then will there be natural PVP again!

Happy New Year for devs and players!

Jakob Kettler

 

Über die schwedischen Flagge - Hallo Devs!

Die grafische Leistung bei den schwedischen Flaggen bezeichne ich als lieblos, planlos und billig. Anstatt sich mit der Historie Schwedens im Ostseeraum auseinander zu setzen, wurde eine Flagge blau, die anderen 4 Flaggen von blau-gelb bis blau-gelb mehr oder weniger hell konzipiert. Und: Was für eine Leistung! Eine blau-gelbe Flagge bekommt ein kleines rotes Feld! Diese Flagge gibt es offiziell erst von 1818 - 1843! An dieser Stelle meine Frage: Geht's noch??? Wo ist die Flagge Schwedisch-Pommerns (Pommern), wo ist die Flagge Schwedisch-Kurlands (Zur Abgrenzung zu anderen Kurland-Flaggen genügt die rot-weiße des Herzogtums), wo sind die Flaggen Alands oder des besetzten Finnlands bis 1815?

Meine Bitte an die Devs: Bitte arbeitet an grafischen Dingen gründlicher und mit mehr Liebe zum Detail! Ich hoffe, dass die verschiedenen Schiffsrumpffarben (bezahlbar) auch bald implementiert werden. Wenn euch die Ideen fehlen - fragt doch die Community, die euch seit Jahren die Treue hält!

Achja, bevor ich es vergesse: Führt bitte wieder ein Rookie-Gebiet ein, schafft die Event-Zonen bitte ab und auch die Hauptstadt-Schutzzonen! Nur so gibt es wieder natürliches PVP!

Alles Gute den Devs und Spielern im neuen Jahr!

Jakob Kettler

Good morning and a happy new year to all

I agree with Jakob ... this flag DLC is not worth to buy for me because the concept lags on historic depth and it dosn't fit with situation of clans. For example the HRE Flag ... does anyone  really think HRE Players will buy the DLC and change nation for this flag?

No. Why should you? It's just a coincidence that the HRE clan actually exists.(And existed before prussian nation already)

Totally understand. Flag collection uses historical flags from the historical sources and unfortunately some nations were not so creative in the flag designs, as a results some nations (like denmark or sweden or united states) have limited selections. This collection will of course be expanded but we would always prefer to add historical flags that could (at least theoretically) be flown on the stern of the ship.

I am sure that someone will manage to assume that they can fly all of the flags as seen on the ship in the current visual display.  If we have to explain to a Brit that he can't fly that Swedish flag....Well, i'd like to meet him 1v1...

This flag in particular is too faded and not crisp enough. The Willem of Orange GWC flag looks great..nice clean lins and letters. Will take another battle to see other flags

How about a Welsh Flag 😂

  1. Could we place a symbol on a say a Blue Ensign for a squad / clan flag?
  2. Could we have Allied Flags say Portugal sailed in ally with the British Fleet against the French.  Some Portuguese players suggested that on TS in my clan and I thought that would be a great gesture.

The flag looks like this in game.

you are probably playing on low settings and of course settings determine how flags look bad

That is the weirdest flag of all in the game. Definitely something special...

Yeah, I don't doubt its authenticity. I know you research a lot before implementing something like this in the game, trying to keep it as historically accurate as possible and I really appreciate your dedication to quality in this regard.

But don't you agree it looks a bit weird? I'm trying to imagine a ship of the line, the most advanced piece of engineering art of its time,  rocking this odd drawing that appears to be the work of some child on its main flagpole... admiralty must have been drunk when they accepted this flag.
