    I bought the captains pack quite some time ago (about when High Seas came out) mainly because of the large ship and the Piolt's Wheel. I was very dissipointed when I tried to put this wheel on the ship. It says only placeable in a house. What good does the wheel do you when it's in the house. Was this an error?

    This is something we've changed in Pub 80. You will be able to place the Captain's wheel on the Brit ship addon pads, it, however, will not have any functionality other than to be purely decorative.

    Yes. I've not been on in quite some time. Re-cooping from surgery and a big fall. Had hip replacement then fell about a month after that. You know that commercial "I've fallen and can't get up"? That is a REAL commercial and I will NEVER laugh at it again. I was stuck on the floor over an hour and a half before my husband came home. It was HORRIBLE!!.

    Thank you for the wb. :)

    Wow. Kind of a waste of money not to have the wheel that is supposed to give the coords for mib's, fishing quests and other things not to work and just sit and look pretty. At least the anvil and forge works. Dissipointing to say the least.

    Oh, it will still do that, I meant it won't let you steer the ship like the other ship wheel. Sorry for the confusion!

    I got it spacifically to use for mib's. I'v collected alot of mib's over the years (327 on hand now in one house) and was looking forward to useing the wheel. That Davys talbe was a godsend to my house storage for sure. Along with the gardening sheds. I do love my blue sextant though. It was a reward tolken but forgot what year that was.
