Cargo Racks

Recommended Posts

The speed nerf on cargo racks makes them worthless.  sailing in the game is horrible enough without more things to slow you down.  This was one of the best things in this patch to now be turned into a steaming pile of shit.

They’re a little strange but still useful. Don’t attach them until you are ready to use them. You can still hold very large amounts of weight that you otherwise would not be able to.

A stock schooner and stock brig carrying 8000 and 16000 kilos of stuff, at  a third of it's max weight with just a 20% penalty to speed is far from being useless, in fact it's incredibly useful.

After testing these a bit, we can definitely carry more on our galleons.  But with limitations.  On a Galleon with a single broadside and 7 aft cannons and all the other bells and whistles for a exploration ship, we can put 2 cargo containers on the ship without seeing huge diminishing effects to speed.   Now on our Trade Galleon we have 4 containers but it only has cannons for aft defense (7).  In either case we definitely boosted the carry capabilities of these two galleons.  I don't think fully outfitting a ships cargo containers in every slot available is very viable, but have a couple or even one will definitely increase the overall carry capacity of the ship.

Having 6 cargo containers on a galleon will ruin the speed too much to even be viable.  I think they need a rework.  where you take into account the basic essentials that you would need on a ship and calculate that into your math for these said containers.   Because nobody with the bare essentials on a Galleon for instance is going to put 6 cargo containers on it and suffer the speed reduction.  And if nobody is going to outfit a ship that way, why have it in the game?

I personally think I should be able to load a galleon for instance with 50% of it normal carry weight and still be able to mount 6 cargo containers and still be under the 75% total weight where I lose all speed (noticeable drop over 75%).   Trade ships should be somewhat fast.
