    Greetings All,

    I wanted to let you know that we are reading your feedback and we are in the process of making changes to the following:

    1. Boat Control - you have to grant access to anyone to control your boat, they can not just take control.
    2. Boat Access - you will be granting access to the cannons etc on your boat to the people you invite.
    3. Sea Market Crowd Control - Since we are seeing such a traffic jam here we are assuming the same thing will happen on production shards, so we are putting in a 20 minute parking time, if you boat is still there after 20 minutes it will be teleported a short distance from the market.
    4. Making the three boats unique. Below is a chart of how the different boats will be different.

    Orc Boat

    Cannons 7
    Turn Delay 2
    Drift Speed 1
    Durability 100K
    Cannon Damage 150%
    Hold Size 14K stones

    Gargoyle Boat

    Cannons 7
    Turn Delay 1
    Drift Speed 1
    Durability 140K
    Cannon Damage 100%
    Hold Size 12K stones

    Tokuno Boat

    Cannons 5
    Turn Delay 3
    Drift Speed 2
    Durability 100K
    Cannon Damage 100%
    Hold Size 16K stones

    Thank you everyone! And special thanks to everyone that helped with all the screenshots the other day!

    Mesanna

    Possible to limit the number of specific cannon types a ship can have? Being able to have only 1 or 2 heavy cannons on a Tokuno ship could help offset it being faster.

    Hey Crysta we thought about that but there are limitations right now on changing the number of weapon pads on the boats.

    We did discuss it but for right now they weapon pad numbers are fixed.

    Nono.. not the number of cannons, the number of a certain type. Like.. Tokuno can only have 3 light cannons and 2 heavy rather than all heavy like now

    I agree there Crysta that is an interesting idea.

    Also ..... what about the hold of the ship? Does that get the same treatment or is everyone granted access allowed in my hold?

    And you didn't mention anything about the other thought on customizing the Pilot.

    Also no mention of the stacking issue with fish... will this be fixed?

    Good to the ship/steering access changes. You didn't mention the hold, so that still needs to be addressed.

    You need to add an open boarding option so we can move a mass of people easily. Having to grant access for each person during an event is going to be a pain in the ass...

    Good for the sea market access change too, hopefully boats won't wind up stacking 'on top' of eachother.


    You must make the fish stackable before launch. There is no logical reason they shouldn't. You know that we want EVERYTHING that can stack TO stack when released. (Since your retroactive stacking fixes are abysmal, do it now.)

    You don't feel that the greater turn delay and lower durability on the Tokuno boat offsets the better straight line speed? It makes it less maneuverable in a fight situation?

    What is Turn Delay? Which number is faster, 1, 2 or 3?

    Whats is Drift Speed? Which number is faster, 1 or 2?

    What are numbers for legacy boats and rowboats?

    Fish need to not only stack but the same fish all need to be turned the same way. My hold is full of fish (item wise) because we have so many new fish turned both ways. I did find out that the cups of bait can be added together to help with storage but when you have mibs and fish there isnt enough room. I love that the holds are holding 12000+ stones but items are a problem

    That is my mistake, depending on the rank you are giving that will determine what you have access to including the hold. We are already addressing the option to just have "open house" on your ship if you desire so anyone can board.

    Changes look good, a couple of questions:

    Will t-maps be updated with the recommendations?

    Will the frost dragon and cold drake be tamable?

    Will anyone being able to board mean that they can also access your hold? I do think you need to treat the deck and the hold as two seperate accesses on this one. Also, are you going to change the 'you've accepted my party so I have access to your whole ship, hold included' thing? Is it possible to add an 'eject from boat' or 'ban from boat' thing, as we can with houses?

    What about features to allow sailing between facets that otherwise support boat travel?

    There should be no reason not to be able to sail between Tram, Fel, T2A, and Tokuno. In fact, that should be among the premeir features.

    Does "drift speed" just account for the sideway motions, or is it a general speed increase?
