    Needs foundation support

    So, I was trying to fill in the open spots of my upper bow deck on the Galleon, but on all these spots i get the message: "Requires Nearby Foundation Support"
  2. Please give us a command to unseat all the crew with one whistle and then seat them back to same seat as they were. It's really cumbersome and boring to run from each crewmember to another to unseat them from cannons and back, especially on galleon with 58 or more crew on board.

    Climbable Rigging

    On actual sailing ships, the rigging is climbable. This would also save weight on the ships. Thanks for listening.
  4. ♥ For 1453 hours, I have played this game in PvP. As we know, this game is a pirate game but after a new patch, again and again, It seems to me that devs tend to focus on updating new content mainly in new tamed and environment instead of ship updating. I would like to discuss about the new contents that I want to see. Let's talk about design first. I would like to see the developers introduce new various ships to fulfil different purposes for players like Caravel for discovery, Indiaman for cargo, Privateer, Frigate, Ship of the line for battle and adding more sails as well. The ship's sails and ship appearance in this game are really annoying to me. Look at Brigantine for example. Most players often attach three speed sails on it and make the ship looks like the kind of weird. There's should have had sails like Spirit sail at the ship's bow and Spraker sail at the stern that can increase ship speed as the rest too. Not to mention the captain's cabin at the stern that is empty, no windows and no big company's flag. Next, we should be able to board the enemy ship and capture it in a short amount of time like 10 minutes when a ship is unanchored but we have to wait more than 8 hours to claim which is really suck. And some good news from the last patch, there's spear bolt which can pull enemy ship but a ship can still fire to each other. If a ship can't fire when spear bolt pulling it, that's mean the boading enemy ship will be easier and it's possible to capture it. And the last point is NPCs that can't do anything more than a mindless robot. It made the game lifeless. This game should categorize NPCs to many occupations such as crew NPCs for mounting canon and controlling sails, pirate NPCs that can board the enemy ship, etc. Moreover, at the Freeport there should be NPCs roaming around like a real port city and some of them can ask players for doing quests. And it is going to be better if there're NPCs cargo ship sailing across between different Freeport or even NPCs pratol ship that can be plundered by players to get foreign materials. But for now, we have to bear with a boring long haul journey to get materials for the blueprint. I hope that this game can be better when it comes out from early access ♥ PS: Don't mind my English skill xD
  5. I think a Ship which is anchored should also count like Land for the Cargo saddle with the 0.33 weight scale cause it whould make unloading a ship way more comfortabe then just throwing stuff over board then pick them up again and put them in the storage of the cargo saddle. Always having problems cause my Tames have to wait on Land to get filled up with all the stuff i collected else they are overweight on the ship even it is anchored and i just want to move them down from my ships

    Group member count wrong

    Network: EU PvE Grid: B11 Description of issue: Group shows 20/20 with no actual weapons in the group Any screenshots or video demonstrating the bug: could not trim the picture enough to post Repro steps if available/applicable: CCC : on the boat cheat TP B11 -140254 -335228 1048 CCC: next to the boat cheat TP B11 -138921 -336498 780 really really need a fix for this - i basically cant use this gally anymore - please just give us a key command or pin wheel command to clear all groups so we can manually put weapons back in their groups
  7. We need a way to clear the group member from ship groups. When the system auto assigns a weapon to a group and the weapon is then picked up or otherwise destroyed the count does not go down so you end up with unusable groups to control. Please just give us a key combination that clears a given group back to zero so we can then re-assign the correct weapons to the groups we want them to be in.

    Ship LvL and Quality

    why is this max lvl 44 with 124% Ship Quality ?? so 100% = lvl 40 and 124% actually lvl 49.
  9. Hello, There is a very annoying bug in boarding my ship using the rope ladders. Sometimes it seems to be impossible to get on the ship because I cannot use this rope ladder. I press "E" to use it, I hang on the ladder but when I want to move upwards, I just swim against my ship and leave the ladder. Other Times, I can climb up half the way, then the character stops and only thing to do is jump from the ladder try once again. Sometimes I can climb up the complete Ladder but I am stuck at the top and connot enter the ship. It is really annoyoing to try 40 times to get on the ship. If this would happen once, ok. But sometimes it's really every time I want to get back on my ship and it is an easier and faster way to build a ramp then to use the ladders. This cannot be intended? So the hardest thing when gathering the chests in the ocean is to get back on the ship before you will be eaten by anything. PLEASE fix this. Make the ladders work or give us a command like for tames to "teleport" on the ship.
  10. Player Shops NPC Crewmates Cosmetics New Players Meet/Hire Player Crewmates Resources All of the above are reasons why the Accelerated Ship Decay should be delayed in Freeport Regions. From the moment you enter a Freeport Region, your ship begins to take a percent amount of damage every 10 or so minutes. My Brig was at full HP on all planks before entering the Freeport Region. By the time I made it to the Freeport island and anchored, my Brig had taken 400 points of damage on ALL hull planks. If players are going to be going to Freeport regions more often to buy and sell items and Player Shops, buy cosmetics for their ships, hire crew members and meet new players... they should not be forced to leave the Freeport region ASAP. The accelerated ship decay should START roughly an hour or two after entering a Freeport Region. That being said... I understand why there is Accelerated Ship Decay in Freeport Regions. This is to reduce lag and reduce clutter in these Freeport Regions. Players should not be clogging the place up with ships and campfires and bodies lying around everywhere, like we saw on Day 1. But if we are to be visiting Freeport towns more often because of the new content coming, like player shops... we should not be immediately penalized for entering these regions. Alternatively... @Argh! Pay mooring fees to anchor in a Freeport... an hourly (gold) rate allows for (an amount of time) in the Freeport. If you need to stay overnight due to unforeseen circumstance you will not return to a scuttled ship as long as you either prepay the "Dock Purser" or have the funds in a resource box on your ship -- Also limit this to any ship above the Ramshackle Sloop...
  11. After taking all kinds of animals with us on a trip around the map to make tons of gold, we encountered several problems with animals on ships. 1. Animals jumping around. Everything bigger than a Tier 1 animal started jumping up and down on the spot they were standing after some time on sea. This didnt change our game expirience on this trip but at a certain amount of animals being on the ship this can cause some problems. 2. Animals dropping a floor up or down on anchoring. This was annoying but didnt cause any greater problems since we could still drag them out of the ship with follow and place them back on top of the ship. 3. Animals starting to fly after anchoring. I dont realy know how and why but our elephant decided to head skywards with a number of small jumps. Dont know if he would come back down on his own but we stopped his trip by whistleling him and he fel down. 4. Animals disappearing. We werent keeping an eye on every animal all the time so on some point a horse got lost. Dont know how and why but it simply happened. 5. Animals losing their passive setting after server crash. Server crashes somehow cause animals to switch to neutral in some situations and its not funny when your elephant decides to meele the ghost ship midfight. My suggestion for these problem would be some kind of animal boxes according to the tier of the animal. The animals can be locked to the pens like npc crewmates can be locked onto a cannon or chair. Also with the same option over the actionwheel. For tier 1 animals i would suggest a small box. In these boxes chicken would still lay eggs and you can pick them up and any shoulder animal can be taken out of it and placed on your shoulder with an actionwheel option. These boxes can be placed anywhere on the ship since you can also carry these animal For tier 2 animals i would suggest animal pens. Something like horseboxes in stables in real life. Any resource animal can still be accesed by standing in front of the box to gather its ressources. I would lock these boxes to places cannons lock into when gunports are present to cause somepoint of decission between transporting animals and having fighting power (i know people build 3 story cannon towers on top of the ship and dont need gunports anymore but i dont like free placement of the animalboxes in this case.). They can also placed on top of the ship but will be easily destroyed there by ghost ship in pve and other players in pvp. For tier 3 animals i would suggest some kind of pole they get "chained" to. These poles take up like 2x2 space in foundations. These poles can only be placed on top of the ship because the animals are simply to big to be under deck and are kind of durable to substain ghostships, other ships and the "strength" of the animal roleplaywise, maybe costing alloy to justify the sturdiness. I hope you like my suggestion and give your feedback to my ideas.

    Random suggestions

    Now before this gets picked apart by random people on the internet who just want to troll around and insult people for their opinions let me start by saying that I love this game. However i do have some suggestions i think would be amazing if GS integrated them into their current system. Most if not all of my opinions would greatly improve the experience most solo/small companies have in and create unique and fun challenges for companies to overcome. Since this IS early access I figured this would be the only time to throw some suggestions out there. And again I am not a programmer/developer so I don't know how difficult these suggestions would be to implement they are just fun idea I think about while playing that would improve the game in some way. More crew options For starters this is one of the most ambitious games I have ever played and has a ton of potential but as stated above a few tweaks to the system could help this game topple most other games in the genre. First of which is the crew system. As it stands now the crew system is pretty good, go to a Freeport or kill ghost ships to acquire more crew to man your ships or mount guns to defend your base. But I would suggest building upon the foundation of the system and AI of the crew to add more immersion and customization to the game. Similar to what the thrall system is in conan exiles, GS could add crew npc's that are not just static npc's the the same behaviors. I suggest adding a system that implements new crew that are proficient in different categories. I.e. crew members that are better suited to man sails but not good at maning cannons or turrets. Or npc's that are well suited for base defense so you can leave an army of npc's in your base to defend it while offline on cannons or armed with swords/bows/guns on foot to meet the invaders. The Ai could possibly function similar to the army of the damned. And while stationed or positioned where they are best suited, the npc's would receive a buff of some sort maybe extra damage or faster turning on sails ect. (And I know you can spec into Captaineering to get talented crew but this would save on skill points) Just picture you are a solo player and you have a little base a few defensive structures but not much else around to keep you safe. Now a bigger crew tries to raid you. They blow up your defenses and storm the beach. But this time you have an army of crew members armed to the teeth somewhere in your base to help fight back. This creates a little more excitement and protection for the little guys and more gameplay for the bigger tribes where they can't just overwhelm the solo/small tribes with little to no resistance. Or on the open ocean you have crew on board not just on sails or cannons but armed with fire arrows and swords to help you fight back enemies when they board your ship. And they will hopefully be good enough to actually put up a fight while defending. Drop anchor at an enemy base and have a horde of npc's follow you into battle. While currently you can place crew on the steering wheel. What if you improve on the idea by being able to program a destination. You can have trade routes that will allow the auto pilot to sail to the nearest free port or a marker that you place. Allowing for smaller companies to send automated shipments or supplies to other bases or ports. And similar to the current playershops can sell goods when they are docked. Don't like farming or just don't have the time or man power to farm hundreds of trees for resources? Have crew members specialized in gathering. These crew members could be set to wander and gather wood/thatch/stone ect around your base and place the resources in a designated resource bin. (This can be done in some way in a similar way like pretty much any RTS in the past almost 30 years) These additional crew types would cut down on the grindiness this game has and improve the overall gameplay especially for smaller companies. Now how would you acquire these new crew? Simple, for starters go to a Freeport like normal to get lower grade (common) crew in each specialization. And I have to point out conan exiles again. But for higher tiers you would have to complete harder and more time consuming quest or tasks. I.e. killing ghost ships, completing dungeons, quest, going to the power or any other new content added later. This will give more incentive to complete more endgame task and detract from the zerg mentality of pvp and add a little bit of strategy to the game. And again this can be done in some way. If you look at gameplay from conan it has already done similar things with the thrall system. To top it off it would pull farther away from just the basic taming system in place currently with animals and make it stand out as more than just "ark 2.0". Could even add a new talent tree specifically for crew so you can either spec down the beastmaster tree or the crew tree. In short this would improve QOL, allow smaller companies to actually stand a chance and not get destroyed so easily, cuts down on the monotony of farming and adds additional gameplay mechanics. GIVE ME MORE SHIPS! Naval warfare is a big reason why a lot of us play in the first place. And while the current ships are enough for early access I think many of us would get bored of the current variety we have now. How many schooners and Brigs can we build before we get tired of the same in game models? Granted there are tons of customization options and builds can try, but how about new ship types or skins. Skins may just be a cosmetic thing like what you guys are working on for the steering wheel. Would be awesome to see some viking, Greek, or Romam ship skins if not just whole new ship designs. For example a whole new category of ship with sails and oars/oarsmen. Built for speed with possibly having rams on the front for ramming enemy ships for massive damage. Adding rams of some form would drastically change naval warfare as it is in game currently. Having to sacrifice speed and weight to place a heavy metal ram on the front of your ship. Forced to make tactical decisions whether to add a ram and strip down some decks or add stronger oarsmen (crew) for speed. Could be similar to the rhino if you command your oarsman to pick up speed in order to land a crushing blow. Speaking of decks. How about the ability to customize the decks we have on ships. As in a cargo deck that, like the cargo racks from the may update reduce weight of items or workstations put on them. Or a deck designed to preserve food and refuse spoil timers for traders shipping their goods. Or a weapons deck that increases damage done by any cannon/torpedoe placed on it. (this would help disrupt the current meta of placing a ton of cannons on ceilings to overwhelm your opponent). or a deck with temp control for when it gets too hot or too cold. Not saying the current old English/British styled ships are a bad thing, I know it's pirate era they are going for just think it would be interesting to see new ship designs. Maybe make new content around the new skins/ships so when you see one you know that crew did something challenging similar to the submarine and the kraken. These things and more are buzzing around in my head almost every time I play. And you could update the game almost monthly like they did ark back in the day. Again, I know most of this is a long shot but still think these are cool ideas that if implemented could possibly increase sales and the longevity of the game and keep people playing. This has been my TED talk...
  13. Dear fellow Pathfinders, A new BUFF for ships! Please! "Take me Home": After moving/Sailing for X minutes (10-15minutes maybe), Out of combat (30min without taking damage from enemy/PVP boat), with no enemy players in render distance. You gain the "Take me home" BUFF. This BUFF give you 20% extra Sailing speed. This BUFF is lost if: Enemy player or pvp ship enters render distance / Collision with SOTD or ship takes damage. The wind mechanics are fun and a good dimension to Ship pvp encounters. But lets admit it, when you have to sails hours and hours (i mean its literaly 1h here, 3 hours there when its not 6 hours...) That slow wind or bad wind we are experiencing everyday adds no fun at all to the game (when traveling long disctances), but for PVP encounters its good. This buff could also be stackble: 1st stack after 15min (+20% speed), 2nd stack 30min later (+35%) , 3rd stack (+50%) 45min later if all conditions are maintained for that long (moving/out of combat/ no enemy players in render) for really long travels. +50% maximum at 3 stacks. The numbers are only suggestions and need to be tested, but you get the idea If you like this suggestion or have any idea to improve it please post/ Upvote. See you guys on the Atlas!

    Harbor-Items

    Since the main focus of this game is the sailing & ships I would like to suggest adding Harbor-Items. Especially in hindsight of the adding of Torpedo’s to the game real Harbor-Structures should be a thing. Of course you can already build your version of a Dock – but this is not really optimal (speaking as someone that has a humongous Harbor): The bazillion of structures do not help the Server performance at all and the worst part - all these structures render often way too late for many people. You can get shot down or crash into a harbor without even seeing it. The big walls helped already a lot with this problem. But there is room for more. Here some ideas: Wharf/Quay - to load and unload. Including Item's like a crane, extendable platform (kind of like the elevator but horizontal) and so on. Dock's & Pier's – they already exist in the game as items (see Freeport and so on). Make them craft able and snap able (with a toggle if they should snap or not). It will help a lot if a big Dock is just maybe 3 structures (like the big walls) instead of hundreds! Harbor-Walls (Sea Walls - also counter wave-movement) & Gates (designed for Waterplacement, example: Lock Gates). Placing stuff under water is beyond terrible. Harbor-Items should be able to be placed on the big under water rocks and not get obstructed by them. In this category one could also add defense against Torpedo’s. All the harbor-items like mooring cleat stock, ship fender and so on. The mooring cleat stock could work as an item that pulls the ship into place and functions like an anchor. If you’re close enough you get the option to use this and then the ship gets pulled automatically. Decorative but usable Items like Alarm-bells, Dressing-Line's & flags for them and so on. Any more ideas?
  16. Does anyone else feel that the changes to ship levels feels kinda bad? Pre wipe we had standard shipyards producing ships with 52 levels and now it seems that we can only get level 50 with a mythic shipyard. The cost to produce a high level shipyard does not seem to justify the outcome since adding 10 levels does not greatly change as much as most people would have hoped. The growth rate of ship stats is small enough that 10 levels does not impact your ship's performance to the degree that a mythical shipyard should. Part of the reason why I think this feels bad is because ship starting stats, or one stat in particular, is kinda low. The starting stat for ship crew size seems off. For example, if you wanted to make a schooner with all of the standard positions filled, 10 gun ports total, 2 sails and the driver, you would need 13 crew slots. The starting crew size of a schooner is only 12 though so to produce a stock standard schooner you already have to commit two levels into crew and it's even worse for Brigantines who need 16 crew slots to minimally have all of the base stations manned and only have starting crew size of 14. I understand the argument for not wanting too many levels on a ship since the ship with the highest growth stat just becomes an unstoppable moving fortress, but right now post wipe ships are overall weaker than they were pre wipe and the very small boost that putting up a high level shipyard rewards feels like a bad system of progression. Suggestions: Buff ship starting crew size to be able to man all of the base starting positions of the ship. Other starting stats should remain the same. Make the base level cap of the standard shipyard 50. Each tier of shipyard quality should add between 2 and 5 extra levels depending on the individual quality of each BP. So a low quality fine ship yard could have the same boost as a high quality common shipyard. Mythic ship yards should add an additional 2-5 levels. So a common BP ship would have a level range of 52-55, fine would be 54-60, journeyman 56-65, Masterwork 58-70, legendary 60-75, and mythic 64-85. It takes long enough to level ships that seeing a max level mythic ship would be incredibly rare since it would be dependent on the drop chance of high quality mythic shipyard and the length of time it would take to get all 85 levels on a ship. Most ships on the water would probably be mid quality journeyman and have a max level close to 60. Reduce the growth stat % of bonus damage by half OR reduce the overall damage of cannons to land based structures OR increase the base damage of cannons anchored to land based structures relative to the quality of structure they are attached too. Other growth stats should remain unchanged. Right now we spend a lot of time farming high quality BPs and materials for a relatively small payout. The difference between Mythic ships and standard ships is small enough that I find it hard to justify spending the time and resources to make one.
  17. Hey! I build a brigantine alone and on my own today with a lot of farming and stuff. Afterwards i went to the Freeport at A6 and picked up 3 NPC sailors to make sailing more comfortable. On my way to the next Server (B6) I had the glorious idea to create a company. Here the problems began. My ship was now company owned but the crew was still only player owned, so i was not able to control them while in this company. I directly left the company to fix this issue BUT now my ship is still in the company and because it's in a freeport region i cant even reclaim it or something. I put so much effort into it for nothing. it really bugs me. I really love this game but this is really annoying. i don't think i can play this game anymore if i don't get any help or something. It's just disappointing that something like this happens
  18. So I sailed though a border yesterday to be greeted by a galleon SotD one schooner length away (this REALLY needs to not happen, its not fun - somehow can we see 10% into the next server perhaps) and it turns and manages to fire on me while im perhaps half a galleon length away and all our tames and a spare crew member immediately go overboard to attack it. The hits happened in the left rear 20% of the boat and could only have "splashed" far enough forward to hit one of the bears. Two clear bugs happened. 1) The crew member was on passive and below decks 2) Three monkeys were below decks attack behavior unknown. There were two bears and a tiger above decks that also went overboard that I personally don't think should ever actually agro by or to a SotD but they didn't have to go through a wall to get off the boat.
  19. I think increasing the sailing speed of sloops would make them a viable ship for solo players. I do a lot of solo sailing by myself and with the current meta everyone uses schooners. Right now using a sloop is a complete joke given they are not good for travelling, cargo, or combat in any way. Here are some reasons I think Sloops should be SLIGHTLY slower than schooners. 1. Sloops are for the solo player, not much room to build on them or base crew so they should accomodate smaller groups of 3-5 people. 2. Sloops are easier to manage. less resources when a plank is destroyed or to repair them means solo players who DONT have access to tames and other high efficiency resourse gathering can still keep their ship repaired with less effort. 3. Sloops have little cannon ability. The size of the crew and size of the deck on a sloop doesnt allow for gunports and barely room for a few cannons on the main deck. So they still wont compete with other ships when it comes to combat. 4. Swivel cannons might matter. Right now canister shots are pretty much never used as they have terrible range and damage compared to medium cannons. It would be nice to have sloops be agile enough to take a few shots with their swivels at larger ships with more canons and hopefully deter them from just outrunning and outgunning them. 5. Sloops are friendly. If I pulled up to an island on a sloop to do a treasure map, no one would care, they probably wouldnt even sink my ship because its not worth the cannon balls. If you pull up in a schooner or brig, chances are it will be attacked while you're busy dealing with the Army of the Damned on the island. This can happen with a sloop too but usually i find its less threatening to island owners so they ignore it. 6. Light weight. Sloops already have the smallest cargo capacity and the least capacity increase per level. This means that they end up being even slower than schooners due to the fact they simply cannot carry as many resources. This is obviously intended given the size of the ship, but seeing as weight effects speed, it is much easier to load a sloop up to 70% capacity than a schooner. Yet a schooner at 70% is arguably still faster than a 10% weight sloop! 7. Personalized ships. Sloops should be the type of ship that you decide to go do a treasure map on or possibly a scouting or exploration mission. They cap out the crew and plank health in a way that makes them the perfect personal or small group ship. They dont need to be stocked as much as any other ship so theyre great to just jump on board and sail to your destination. However, given the distance between islands and speed difference from sloop to schooner, I believe the idea of having a personal sloop for exploring further than your home tile has been lost due to this lack of speed. 8. Incentivising Sailing. Right now it is a rather large chore to take a ship out. Most people assume it is a responsibility that if they do take their schooner out they need it properly stocked and to make sure it doesnt sink. More people may take ships out onto the seas more often if sloops provide an inexpensive and casual way to travel between the islands. It would allow them to move with out as much of a fear of sinking from other pirates. This helps those who want to be pirates as well because they have more targets available on the waters. I hope everyone can keep an open mind about this, sloops at the moment are considered as worthless as rafts when it comes to seafaring and I would love to see them used more often so there is more variation than the current Schooner only meta most people use.
  20. There are a bunch of bugs in placing structures on ships, the most annoying is "needs nearby foundation support" for something that's going to land on a deck....... but works for an adjacent square. PLEASE fix these by just removing this check on boats - I'd love it to be accurate and go by some reasonable build rules but if the choice is the current buggy system that is wrong a large percentage of the time or free build and we accept the consequences lets pick the no rules option. I have even tried building from the bottom deck up but to no avail it still gives silly errors. Also I can't help but think much of the problem is caused by what is shown in the screen shot below, a wall placed on a wall that is somehow offset. This should never ever be a thing and shows a fatal flaw in how structures connect. Every structure (wall / ceiling / roof etc) needs to have exactly one, and only one, connection line on each edge. This needs to be separate from whatever is displayed / rendered for that structure so there is no temptation to make exceptions for what it is that results in things like left and right sloped walls.
  21. TheSzerdi

    Capturing Ships

    The system sucks. It's currently impossible to capture a ship unless it's abandoned. Selling captured ships was the main source of income for pirates. The piracy tree end tier skill sucks too. One minute off the capture timer with a ninety second cool down. The whole system needs to be replaced. Alternate system one: Each deck of a ship has a capture zone that must be held for X time. You can capture them in any order, but must hold all of them at once for Y time to claim the ship. The zones can be re-captured by the ship owners. Alternate system two: All enemy NPC's and players must be off the ship. Claim flag like the current system, but much shorter timer (30 minutes or less). You must remain on the ship to capture. Enemies stop countdown, but do not revert it until all claimants are off the ship. Anchored ships have an additional separate claim requirement that ends in a minigame to break the anchor before the main claiming process can begin.
  22. New Mechanic Suggestion: Sail Ships away if All Crew/Deck Hand Killed [15 Minutes] Why: Piracy revolved around stealing ship's w cargo Stolen ship's Should increase LVL cap of ship by a % of LVL cap this is due to LVL cap being determined by ship dock type Mythic dock would offer +15 LVL cap increase, Masterwork +12 LVL cap, and so on Diminishing returns of this too should be implemented, stealing a ship a second time would off less of a LVL cap increases & stolen ships should be harder (longer timer) to steal Stealing a ship BACK (from prior owned company) should have a shorter timer (both on Sailing AND Stealing back, This incentivizes Company’s doing raid missions to steal a boat back, Invulnerability should be turned off on doors and walls and any “deckhand” (IE killable) for a stolen boat from a Previously owned company) THIS IS A HUGE INCENTIVE to steal ship's (ship inventory should have Mechanic/Button to see stolen history (another reason to have company names binding)) Deckhand Status: If anyone in range of deck (fighting in water wont negate Deck hand), Deck hand status to boat. (Multiple boat deck hands can be applied as clustering boats in and of itself is a HUGE disadvantage to the boats being clustered) Who has been on deck in last 15 minutes (only in zone, cant bed-spawn, then bed-spawn to somewhere else will reset it) Making Landfall will also negate being a Deck hand -A deckhand who was killed in range of ship will not RESET deckhand timer unless alive past bed/PvP timer (IE Re-spawn timer is 3 minutes due to multiple PvP deaths, he will have to stay alive 3 minutes PAST re-spawn to Reset Deckhand Timer, Which would be at 12 minutes as he was dead for 3 minutes waiting on re-spawn) This forces people to GUT ship's and destroy beds. (so fighting will be extended, and should be rewarding) This will allow/force players to design better ship interior's as they will take consideration, (seen a lot of galley hallow, this mechanic will require them to build better) If Deck-hand Status alive to ship, Ship cannot be sailed away or NPC's snapped to sail Sailing: Sailing a ship away allows a Chase mechanic/Game Play, adds the option to request companies to help save ships (cross company support/help would be more wanted/requested) Ship cannot be anchored in Island invulnerability range, Sailing in a Free-port would be DETRIMENTAL to someone trying to steal. It would cancel the steal status/flag. It would allow the crew to come back to the ship and they couldn’t be killed, and those in range would reset the sailing ability of the boat. Ship owner can TRACK BOAT (still visible on map) until the boat is Claim flag’ed stolen. (allows them to chase it and have great time fighting to get it back) You will HAVE to have NPC's snap to each sail (2 per sail) during sailing/stolen process; Unfamiliar Sail/Knot/Rigging System of unfamiliar ship is a DISADVANTAGE and require more constant attention to work Allow/Require 2 players To operate a sail (2 players having to communicate (open to -65 degree 100% sail) and both having to get it correct, if either put different option sail has random negative effect, Random Rotate/Open Close) NPC's cannot man anything OUTSIDE OF SAILS; Players cannot man anything outside of SAILS and Helm (piracy skill for helm control? Disadvantage to DRIFT without this piracy skill, meaning any one can sail it away but a pirate would be BETTER at it and constant readjusting course) Reason, it will require players to DISADVANTAGE another ship to make this play (they weaken a boat by either having extra crew/NPC on it (less player/crew slots) or they have to remove gun NPC’s, Or 2 actual players NPC LVL must be above 20 (more experienced sailor right?) Mechanic / Game play I’m still concerned about: Parking ships in SUPER harbor’s (this takes all the fun out of rescue missions) maybe have a mechanic that the ship cannot be parked at/in range of Islands w a high/med value? And within a LARGE range of a foundation/building structure Of course people would just build SUPER LARGE structure/harbor in the middle of the ocean… but if they went through that much trouble to build it in the middle of the ocean and are that big of a target to be attacked and have a bounty placed on it… so IDK Suggestion and feedback are APPRECIATED A company Can only steal a CAPPED amount of ships from another company (avoids company stealing each other’s boats to get super fleets) (say 3 ships Company A can only steal 3 ships from Company B But can steal another 3 from company C ect ect ) I think this mechanic added to game play would: Incentivize people into NOT sinking Ship’s instead try and STEAL ships (reward system to not offline ) I think the GAME-PLAY would offer a Great Reason to use The Bounty systems and offer company's a reward to get boats back.
  23. I've seen a few older posts containing parts of what, but they are a bit incomplete (imho). I know people usually get angry over posting relevant things in older threads for some weird reason, so I made a new thread instead. 1. Why does it need a rework? - Ships with ridiculous platforms with most guns on top deck facing fore or aft, all with large cannons. - Almost no-one in pvp is using gunports - Galleons with 6 masts look horrible and are totally unrealistic for the era that inspired the game's setting, even if it's not set on Earth. (17th or 18th century) - We can't create any proper rig due to lack of headsails, staysails and inablily to attach gaff sails to the back of square rigged masts - The large masts look too small on a galleon. - The gunports look a bit too large. For people who think a game full of 6 masted warships is not an issue: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_large_sailing_vessels As you can see: - Not a single warship ever had more than 5 masts. - Not a single pure sailing warship ever had more than 4 masts. - The largest and latest pure sailing warships, when pure sailing warfare technology was at its pinnacle, right before steam engines were introduced on warhsips, only had 3 masts. - Even the hybrid steamer warships from the 19th century in this list, that had more than 3 masts, had their rigging reduced to 3 masts at some point. I did not find examples of 15th through 18th century merchant vessels with more than 4 masts either. So do you now understand why any Age of Sail enthusiast will cringe at the sight of a 6 masted galleon? In my opinion, the ingame galleon with it's maximum of 52 gunports and about 54 meter long gundeck, looks alot more like a 3-masted 4th rate ship of the line, than the earlier 4-masted galleons. Either way it should absolutely not have more than 4 masts and preferably only 3. 2. Solutions: 2.1 Sails - Add a very large mast, with royal sails and if larger shipclasses are added, add huge masts aswell. This would both allow for having a 3 masted galleon aswell as have the masts look large enough for the galleon and potentially larger vessels. - Adding jibs and staysails It would allow to have a proper Bermuda rig for sloops, a proper Schooner-rig or just about any proper rig that needs headsails. - Separate mast and sail placement. This would for example allow for an actual brig rig with 2 square rigged masts, a gaff sail (spanker) attached to the mainmast and jibs between the bowspirit and foremast. It would also allow for a square rigged sail to be put on top of a gaff rigged masst for a proper brigantine rig. - No weight sails Because it just doens't make any sense, remove a weigth sails and suddenly a ship can carry less and starts sinking? Similar to weight reduction on tames. 2.2 Cannons and combat - Remove the large cannon or restrict placement to lowest deck and increase range of medium cannons to at least match the range of SotD. It would make people actually use gunports and give us less ridiculous looking designs. The largest guns were actually put on the lowest gundeck, closest to the water, where the ship was at it's widest, to prevent capsizing when firing them. Could also not restrict placement and make ships capsize when firing large cannon broadsides from top deck. - Add fore and aft gunports and possibly restrict cannon placement (not sure about the latter) No more 10 cannons platforms at fore and aft. - Make cannonballs protrude the hull and damage, or just make the bow and stern weaker: Turning your bow or stern into an opponents broadside becomes a bad idea and people would want to actually use their broadsides as much as possible and try to do "T-mavoeuvers" for max damage, while at the same time trying to avoid allowing their opponent to execute this manoeuver. - No weight difference for cannons between openend and closed gunports. Opened gunports in high seas would just mean ur ship is sinking very slowly because it takes on water. I mean the ships sink with one plank removed, but keep afloat with all those oversized gunports open? And why does it say submit a bug report, when i'm posting in suggestions?

    Animal and Ship Stats won't update

    When I ride an animal or put items on a ship, the stats don't visibly change. When I am sprinting for a long time on an animal, the stamina bar doesn't deplete, but the animal does get tired. When an animal gets damaged too much, the hp bar hasn't dropped, but my animal is bloody and my screen is red. An example screenshot shows the weight, but its to all stats. In this picture, my horse could still not move. I am on unofficial, and there are no mods or cheats active that would be changing it. It is also happening to everyone on our server. Relogging/reloading the client and restarting the server do not change it.
  25. Insane things that have to be corrected in the nearest patch. Article: NPC, Animals, Ship, Construction 1. NPC 1.1. NPC's undead ships (onward NPC-u) spawning just next to the border of the locations. That has to be changed in urgent. One way is to make the specific zone around the whole area where NPC-u could not spawn and trying to leave (except the battle situation). The second way is to make an indicator (like red colour zone on the wall if the area behind in other location near the border contain NPC-u near). I'm sailing in a small ship and smart enough to avoid a fight with NPC-u, but in present time Players do not see dangers on the opposite side of a wall of the edge the location. # Lost 3 just crafted ships in Lawless region just in that time when changed location. Last time had 3 NPC-u spawned next to me and opened fire on my weak vessel. Became scared to change location and thinking to finish the game due to the fact that gameplay prevents me to play freely by sailing around the game's world. 2. Animals 2.1. Crocodiles - first insane shit in the game - too big, too fast, too aggressive. Needs: make it smaller than a shark or equal, keep it move fast but on short distance or totally slower than now. 2.2. All behaviour of predators have to be change - animals have to tie to the environment what they control. What living on the land have not to attack players in the water (specifically when a player on the ship next to the land. When the player on the ship or in the property, predators attack property not more than a specific time (5 - 10) then change target or drop aggression (for none-predators) <now I'm a very often wake up in death inside my property due to the fact that predators attacking constantly>. Wild Predators could attack predators as well. Wild Predators attacking when the player or none-predator animal comes too close and when predator starving, in other time just wandering as none-predator animals. # At this moment with the present system very hard to settle down in warm climate regions. 3. Ship 3.1. Ship's constructive must be stronger than now and more customizable. Ships must be difficult to destroy and take due to the fact that ships have to be as a home, base, weapon for Players. 3.2. Need to add more types of small ships (min 2) and one medium size to provide players who love to travel alone more interest. Need to add more constructive elements (like half of half stairs, thinner elements of the wall, door, window (please add a square variant of the window), etc., add more points to connect additional elements to modify vessel, specifically for small ship (like sloop with very very narrow way to move on it around. 3.3. Ships could be possible to sell to NPC in towns to sell to the players or sell directly to other players with the name of crafter (as other craftable things). 3.4. Experience of the ship has to be more valuable - provide more options to modify (like speed, invisible for npc's, etc.) to make the player associate with it and feels like a part of it. To be interested to continue sails on it even if it is small ship and be no as trivial consumable. 3.5. Ships could not be destroyed when anchored next to an island during the month (see Paragraph 3.1 and 4.3) to provide Players to have a break time for Vacations or do something in real life. 4. Construction 4.1. Construction elements have to be limited - no other possibility to add a base element of building on the ground whatnot connected to the first. Add road element (limited in 50 pcs) to increase controlling space and increase movement speed between settlements of Players. 4.2. Increase the off time from 4 days to 6 to provide Players who working 5 days peacefully return to their settlement. 4.3. The number of ships owned by player limited by one (see paragraph 3). 4.4. The number of flags owned by player limited by 2. 4.5. Shipyard (dock) abandoned (empty) by owner must be available to craft the ship for other players and became the owner of it (owner have to decide to deconstruct dock or present to other Players). 4.6. Time to pick up constructive elements (specifically for ships) have to be changed by a system that Players can pick up any elements in any time during the constructing time. 4.7. Things like a bed, box, chest, Smithy, bag, barrels, tables, chairs, etc. have to be movable to the inventory of Player any time to place on the new place. Not under the list: would be great if add the book of recipes where Players can add some unique one and what can safe knowledge permanently for the player and be moved as an inheritance by the quest for the player when his character will die of old age. And a new character of the Player has to find this book (NPC quest giver in free town) to receive this knowledge and continue to collect. Recipes in the book could be modified by removing regular grade to the better and better what the Player found and add to it. # With present gameplay Players staying on the ground most the time and grinding resources instead of enjoying to sail. I think the game about sailing and NOT mining, digging, grinding resources (ok with gold)! But first, do something with NPC's undead ships to do not loos the ship of Players just because they stay on the other invisible side of a new location during the transfer time (see Paragraph 1).
