DLC Trader Ship: Madre de Deus


Question

- There is no DLC Trader ship yet.

- There is not a large enough trader ship so everyone uses a fleet of smaller ships.

- Fleet ships do not benefit from perks, repairs, upgrades or books; thus making it unfair against attackers which are always players using those benefits.

- Using a single ship will give players a better chance of defending against attackers.

- Making it DLC will make it accesible to everyone regardless of her seemingly high wood cost.

- Madre de Deus was a 7-deck trader ship from Portugal, a formidable opponent but also a great prize.

- Perfect ship for the role.

- There is not a large enough trader ship so everyone uses a fleet of smaller ships. People use a fleet as it enables them to take more cargo in one journey than using a single ship. That does not mean the game needs a ship with twice the cargo capacity of existing traders.

- Fleet ships do not benefit from perks, repairs, upgrades or books; thus making it unfair against attackers which are always players using those benefits. That is the price you pay for putting the traders (or any ship for that matter) in your fleet tab.If you want upgrades and perks, sail the trader directly. This won't change that designated warships of similar or even bigger size will have large combat advantages however. That is why they are warships.

- Using a single ship will give players a better chance of defending against attackers. Then use a single Indiamen if you think so? I don't see a single trader being better than a 3rd rate and 2 fleet-AI traders, tho...

Madre de Deus (1589) is out of the game's timeframe for ships by more than 100 years. She will be slower and weaker compared to the Indiamen we have, and also less armed and with less cargo capacity. A quick google search lists her capacity at 900tons, while the Amsterdam, on which the Indiamen is based, is listed at 1150 tons. If put into the game, Madre de Deus will NOT be larger than the traders we have ingame, nor will she be better at sailing or combat.

No
