    Has anyone enabled WPE on Blackwood server

    Pirates ONLY work on non dedicated modes. They said they planned for non official dedicated, but it hasn't happened yet. So if you use a server you can't use pirate camps. I'm waiting for it myself, non dedicated multiplayer isnt really a good option

    Captain's Log #38: Plans, Extra Life & More

    Any update on when pirate encampments will be making it to non official dedicated? And they got rid of the 20ish hour instapoof in Freeports? Huh.

    Sharks keep killing crew from SOTD

    Use a grappling hook and pull them onto the side of your ship (or halfway up the side for galleon) and then recruit them, then whistle onto your ship. Open your gun ports it helps with the pathing.

    how much does a 57 island cost?

    It's a legitimate question, as frankly it's usually less than 1 foot. Just like the new 1-2 ounce light pint glasses etc.

    Xbox and PC Crossplay is now Live!

    Pirate encampments needs to be on non official dedicated. Having an entire group be held to one person's playtime is a bit silly.

    All company anchored ships gone

    Building decay timer is 10 days, not 14/15.
  7. Something they have to stop doing is adding more big islands. Ultimately, if the goal is to get more people on islands, adding islands that only a smaller subset of players can afford isn't going to help. Granted, with the increase in points, that helps, but that also just made other problems worse, since they gave all companies more points. Ultimately, all it did was put more pressure on the smaller island ownership and we still have unowned large islands. You cannot give a solo player enough points to hold two entire islands alone (or is it 3 or 4 now after the bump?). Having a second island, regardless of company size, should be a high bar. You have systems in place to encourage outposts (especially without the nuke) on other people's / Allies territory. Larger companies should be incentivized to hold larger islands, but right now that isn't the case. The biggest islands just aren't worth the trouble. If they offered More diverse resources (say the 100+ point islands had 2 or even 3 variants of resources), allowed a higher tax rate (30, 40%), had a higher chance of maps spawning, or better map quality (to give more passive gold generation), really anything. But right now, holding 2 smaller islands, to get resource variety, drastically outweighs the value of holding one bigger one.
  8. The quickest exploit here is that you only need to destroy one square to demolish the resource box a group has been using. Then you can loot it.
  9. Thank you for taking us seriously. Spam is a problem that exists, but it's smaller now than ever before. Drastic solutions will do more harm than good. Anybody here, now, is patient enough to wait as long as they won't lose anything.

    So far, the developers have been adamantly against telling us any details about the system. No timelines or conditions for resetting have been explicitly stated.
  11. The weekend becomes a much weaker excuse when they release the feature Friday night with about an hours warning from announce to patting themselves on the back for a happy community...

    Developers Forum Time

    You know you can tell the last login time by going to their profile, right? It's not uncommon for the community managers to only pop in once every few days. They truly dont care about the forums. What's ironic is that even on discord we've given feedback that is also ignored. They pretty much look for one or two people to support a change, then ignore the rest.

    Any advice on surviving a heatwave?

    Hide would be a terrible idea, it has negative hyperthermic. It makes heat worse. Only armor that helps is cloth, and cloth is better than naked. Our elephant breeding area hits 51 sometimes during heat waves. Yes, unrealistic, and I have to get out of the torch room but otherwise it has not been lethal
  14. Even the people on this forum in favor of it have said they want it to get rid of "eyesores" and ugly buildings. They specifically see it as a chance to finally get to attack other, active players, simply because they dont like them. And you dont have to farm gold for this. Just leveling gives you insane amounts of gold. We have enough to do this a dozen times over just sitting around, and we have never once gone out "to get gold."
  15. There's a segment of pvp players who want to have opponents who can't fight back. Anybody who thinks griefing will never happen should check out every game ever.
