Ship name change

Recommended Posts

   We have the option to change a ships name but I don't see where to change it ? Does anyone have any ideas ?

I’ve had nothing but bad luck, this is not of much importance now since the ship I was wanting to change the name on was sunk yesterday when either lag caused me to not hear cannon fire while passing by ghost ships or running aground when trying to drop anchor. It was a brigantine, then I was heading to a alliance ship yard and pitch of dark I didn’t see the small section of ramp that I hit and became stuck on, this ship is a schooner, I tried to use the sails to pull the opposite way to move the ship a few feet off but with the mechanics of this game all moves must be forward so with a lot of fruitless effort the ship remains stuck, I submitted a help ticket but I’ve noticed that the devs take hours at times days to respond and it’s normally with a I’ll pass the the message on, they had so many small server resets yesterday I should have just logged out and waited for everything to stabilize before taking the chance of losing everything I’ve built. All by the way this is a PVE server

Daemon Cross, All you have to do is close your sails, get on the wheel and hold the "S" key.  This will allow your ship to slowly backup.  You can do that on everything except the raft.

I’ll try that next time, I figured out by closing the sails and raising the anchor that allowed you to pivot where I was.

I'm actually glad they DON'T have a name-change option yet. I like to know when I've seen the same ship griefing people at my island!

Too bad that rename on boats doesnt work.

I will never understand why this option + sail fix are not possible.

A ship can be given a name one time only.

Once it's named, it can't be renamed (yet).
