Something strange in the water at Skara Brae!

    Crossing the small 'strait' between mainland and Skara Brae can be entertaining!

    Last week I was left standing on the water and my ship finished the trip by itself. I wasn't able to get back on the ship but I could dock it. Then I called an old friend and he launched his huge galleon. The ropes on the seaside didn't work though, thankfully the ones on the landside did. Saved!

    Today it was quite different. Three or four 'moves' before the ship hit the pier, I was thrown onto land, landing on the pier! :smile2:

    Has anyone else experienced something like this?

    We seriously need a swimming booster pack or even expansion. Those ships are too unreliable.

    it happens from time to time, especially if you are experience lag, delay, whatever you want to call it. the more pressing concern in Skara , is what happened to the Governors office ;)

    Is it just me, or are the mermaids getting uglier?
