Patch 30: General feedback

USS United States WAS a sister ship of the USS Constitution.....

i would suggest changing the name in Constellation

Construction of the frigates slowly continued until the 1796 announcement of the Treaty of Tripoli, which was witnessed by Algiers. In accordance with the clause in the Naval Act, construction of the frigates was to be discontinued. However, President Washington instead requested instructions from Congress on how to proceed. Several proposals circulated before a final decision was reached allowing Washington to complete two of the 44-gun and one of the 36-gun frigates.[50] The three frigates nearest to completion, United States, Constellation and Constitution, were chosen.[51] Construction of Chesapeake, Congress, and President was halted, and some of their construction materials were sold or placed in storage.[52]

Constellation sailed under Captain Thomas Truxtun from Saint Kitts on 30 January, and encountered the French frigate La Vengeance, of the La Résistance class (design by Pierre Degay, with 30 x 24-pounder guns and 20 x 12-pounder guns) during the night on 1 February. La Vengeance was outweighed by Constellation but had the heavier broadside, 559 lb (254 kg) to 372 lb (169 kg).[23] La Vengeance attempted to run and had to be chased down.[24] An hour after sunset Constellation came into hailing range and when La Vengeance was ordered to stand to and surrender, she answered with a broadside.[24] After an hour Constellation's foresails failed and had to be repaired; she then overtook La Vengeance and a running battle exchanging broadsides continued.[25] Twice the ships came close enough that boarders were called for on both ships, the second occasion was quite bloody as US Marines in the Constellation shot up the deck of La Vengeance leaving her deck covered in bodies of the dead and wounded, and forcing her boarding party to seek cover. A young Lieutenant standing next to Captain Pitot of the La Vengeance had his arm taken off at this time.[26]Constellation was victorious after a five-hour battle. La Vengeance was so holed in the hull and her rigging so cut up that she grounded outside the port of Curaçao rather than attempt to sail into port for fear of sinking. The French commander just managed to save his ship from capture and – upon returning to port – was so humiliated he later boasted that the American ship he had fought was a much larger and more powerful ship of the line. Despite a heavier broadside Captain Pitot of the La Vengeance accounted that she had fired 742 rounds in the engagement while Captain Truxtun of Constellation reported 1,229 rounds expended.[23] Constellation's rigging and spars were so damaged she dare not try to sail upwind and so went to port in Jamaica. Unable to complete a refit she limped home on a jury rig.[26] After the encounter, the Constellation's speed and power inspired the French to nickname her the "Yankee Racehorse."

The "Constitution Note" is mis-labled in the Admiralty.  It should say purchase "USS Constituion Note" for 7500.

I think the hold spaces need to be increased to accomodate the doubling (in case of lineships) of repairs needed.

Looks like a pretty solid patch with some good changes. I'm scared now....

If I pay the 50k doubloons, what happens next????  This is not clear to us.  Do we need to be the clan that owns the port in order to receive the Teak.  Where will the Teak appear and when?  Is this the only such Teak mission in the entire map? 

Wow that looks expensive too!

Its easy to get doubloons now as a solo player by just doing pax and letter deliveries in a trader lynx. My alt already got around 10k today.

 

About how long do you think that took you, roughly? Just wondering if it would be any faster than killing ~20 AI traders, for the same amount.

I made about 10k in 3 hours mainly sailing afk on my alt. You can take multiple missions and even when you have taken 10 you can still get more by abandoning missions as it still allows you to deliver and claim the reward. So your only limitation is the number of hold spaces you have and finding enough missions going to the same area.

Heh, but it literally can be done in a T-lynx on a few alts running in the background while you watch Netflix. :) 

On that note, I wonder if there any good deals going on for 1440p monitors at the moment.

That's not bad, at all. Though if I understand the mission descriptions correctly, if enough people start doing those, you'll run into the issue where someone with a head start already took the same mission and you get nothing? Or does "if someone else delivers it" refer to getting captured, your "cargo" looted, and an enemy player delivering it instead?

The missions can be done by multiple people, the reference to someone else delivering it refers to if it gets captured from you, they can hand it in without having taken the mission. The items can be captured from you but not traded. There was an exploit that I pointed out on the test server where if many people took the same mission and were on basic cutters and sailed and surrendered to an enemy alt in battle that kills did not register and the alt could pick up multiple of the same mission item to hand in. I hope they have closed that exploit.

I changed perks since we have been told we get the first fleet perk as standard.

I haven't noticed sextent perk working, do we need to click it as a perk?

Once again, admin - how did the 1st rates get updated to where they aren't threatened by small ships?

Thought only new players got it from start. Think if you want it, you need to reset your perks.

I think the ship type "United States" is too similar in name to the US faction.  Please consider renaming it to the "Washington" or something like that.

I absolutely agree. renaming the Connie to "United States" is a recipe for endless confusion and misunderstandings. (e.g. "Was that guy referring to the ship or the nation??"... And/or: "When I clicked on that ship in the OW, it shows a US ship flying a British flag. How come??"...)

I know there was a Constitution-class ship called United States, in the real world, but there were others too.

Also, it's really hard to think of a shorthand nickname for a ship called United States. To differentiate between the old NA 'Constitution' and the NA 'Constitution Classic', they could perhaps have been renamed them 'Constitution I' and 'Constitution II', for example. Then we could conversationally refer to them as 'Connie1' and 'Connie2'. 

Or just have one Constitution-class ship in the game, and call it Constitution, as it was, before.

Then you wont cry when the elite is left to fight with themself and casual player (which will always represent an important fraction of the player base, if not a majority)  do not get involved in RVR and slowly goes away because will never be able to compete already in term of ship quality.

Think the idea is all now want to take part.

@admin a couple of Thing I would like changed.

first Dk-Ng is 2 nation in one. Still you want to ruin a poor Norweigan to sail with his nation flag. 50 k dbl. It should be free. May you get 1000 slepless nights over this.

Second this “Elite v.2” patch could be eased a bit for casaual and still stay true to what you want. A semi hardcore war server. Plz make the Agga and a second rate avaiable for dbl.(Ofc I want the Christian, Born and bread dane to the bone)

Regarding rare woods:

I like the idea, that woods spawn on different ports.

What i dont like is the need to "explore" the ports where i can get them, becuause to find that out is more or less just afk sailing. And you need to sail due to limited outposts.

If the trader tool refreshes with the spwan locations nations know which ports they need and the action around these ports can start right away. Traders need an escort to get woods out and hunters know where to find the prey.

This would eliminate afk sailing and lead to fast action around these ports with faster spawn of the woods in another port.

@admin The  Tips section is now found in settings> tips

i find that section even more important than the tutorial, it is general information what gives a story to the purpose of handling .. (like help)

 

so i would also give it a more visible place to see and look at,  especially for beginners.in the port ui

 

so i would gladly see the tips button, what is now situated in the settings tab

on the left side at the upper port button (just like what we have now with the button with the question mark)  and be visible as a button with a question mark (?)

 

or Tips as (text) Help in the in the port UI...(or even call it Action wiki : ) )

 

The button who is sitting there (on the left side next to leave port ) need to be moved to the right side of the leave port button with the letter T (from T utorial)

If you start as a cadet, the tip on the top right of the screen is very good to see...

stern and bow were inverted before. now they correspond to the indication on the reload indicators (circles). (stern on the left - bow on the right).
