    I thought this new ship was also supposed to be made available, on a limited basis, as something you can buy from the game code store.

    Its still on TC1, give it time :p

    However, unless they sell it for $150 very few people will go through the tedium of the library collection method...

    That should cut down considerably on the complaint threads in UHall.

    I wonder how thorough the testing of this new ship will be, given the number of points it takes to acquire one. Unless EA gives TC1 characters an automatic allotment of donation points with the NPC handing out the ships, I doubt very few people will put in the time there to try to acquire one just to do free QA work for EA. And if they don't get good testing on TC1, who in their right mind would spend real money or waste weeks of time trying to acquire something that might be buggy as heck and/or has the potential to poof in less than a week's time if it is subject to normal boat decay rules?

    Seems like the dev team needs to provide more information (e.g., do you need to buy the High Seas booster to acquire/use one; is this going to be an alternate type of housing; can they be damaged like other ships; what kind of storage do they provide; how are they different from/same as other ships; etc.) and encourage people to test this item if they're considering selling it for any period of time for cash.

    I highly doubt many people will avoid getting one of these regardless of whether it gets player tested. I wouldn't expect it to be more buggy than the current ships though.

    It does say you need High Seas on the deed and the ship model - a warning on the NPC who hands them out might not be a bad idea though.

    It's also no-trade and account bound, in both deed and model form.

    depends on what you can turn in for how many points as to whether's it's hard to get or not

    On the fisherman npc. ;)

    I have added all the fish i got throughout the years and iam still only 50% of the fisher glasses. Even all the lobsters / crabs i got so far will be only a tiny dent on the 10 million points. Guess i have to do the $$ way if the ship is worth having.

    If it's on the Fishing NPC though, you're a bit limited ...

    Fishing Pole - 2 Points
    Fish - 1 Point
    4 Raw Fish Steaks - 1 Point
    Crab - 10 Point
    Lobster - 10 Point

    Or money, of course...

    Anyone have 1,000,000 spare lobsters? ;)

    You know you could just create a huge load of raw fish steaks and turn in everything else you get while getting them. Top it off with gold.

    Please add cooked fish steaks to the turn in menu!

    First, I'd need a fisherman character .... then I'd need to get several million fish without going completely crazy in the process... :drool:

    I think I'll not be getting one of these in the forseeable future, but they are very nice ships.

    It's 10,000,000 points with all that means in terms of time and hard work to get it only to then see it going "poof" because it decayed ?

    I think tt definately is necessary and advisable that more informations are provided to players about this ship if the players need to take a responsible decision whether they want to invest so much of their time and game gold into it........

    The hold can store 28.000 stones and the upper deck can be walked on.

    It's simply called the Britannian Ship, maybe that's the name they have given what we first heard termed 'the Whale', I don't know. It certainly looks to have spaces for items other than cannon, so it's a sort of semi-houseboat....

    Shhhh! Your logics will scare the Dev Team!

    What needs to be tested? We all know their code is rock solid and well thought out... :thumbsup:

    No, sorry, I lie.

    So there IS a way to test the new ship? Mind sharing with the class?


    Since reward points are by shared throughout the collection, frostwood boards are worth the most at 48 points each. So it would take 208,334 frostwood boards...

    Said that ;) Same in model form too, so if you want one, you pay the collection NPC. No option to get a second hand one from other players... unless, of course, it also turns up in the online store and that version is different, but I've no idea if either of those will be true!

    Messana placed a crystal statue on New Haven docks, Test Centre - double click it, you get the deed for the boat, then try find space to launch it, which is the harder job!

    From other thread:

    Glad to hear it's account bound though. Last thing we need is scripters obtaining these ships only to turn them over for RL cash or tons of gold.

    In game. It looks really silly.

    EDIT: I relaunched my client and can't get the ship to repeat this. It may have been a glitch in my client...

    I can't wait to unravel all my MIB chests on the boat!

    The last time I turned in boards to the Library collection artist NPC, only that specific NPC gave me credit for those boards, the other's did not show me having any points.

    So I could only get one of the rewards the artist offered. For the most part I think the different library collection NPC's offer the same rewards, except for the glasses?

    And now the boat.

    The Museum collection didn't have that restriction, but the library did.

    I do hope the points you collect when turning in items to one Library NPC are shared amongst all NPCs.

    And that they add cooked fish steaks to the items you can turn in list.

    Is there a cook NPC there?

    Be nice if they add the stupidnrare books to point list..
    And spare orc ship deed parts..
    Also heavy or light amunition or powder be nice to add for points..

    Hey maybe even your old small ships can be turned in for points?

    Good way to clean up some house cluther..
    Even fishing nets ...

    Given the high capacity of the hold I hope that it can store more than 125 items....

    Nice. If we can place add-ons I hope the decay will be different for this particular ship.

    GAK! I just tried it... Gave 50 frostwood to the artist, and the fisher didn't see the points.

    So the BEST you can do is lobsters for 10 points. Thats one MILLION lobsters to get the boat.

    It will be a very long time before we see a ship from the community collections.

    No, wait... The scriptors will just buy it for 150 mil gold. :(

    I can't go back in to test it, but I'd expect so since that's coded onto those containers, not part of the coding for the boat hold.

    You reckon? Given the prices I've seen Luna houses and well placed Trammel castles sell for, I expect to see at least one sailing within the first day of them being available on production shards, almost certainly paid for with cash....

    Edit : Actually, I reckon within an hour of server restart with the live pubish.... and more than one boat, too...
