Two items on my "Boat Want List"...

    1. The ability to lock down or add light items (torches, candles, lanterns) in reasonable amounts to the boat where they will not decay.

    One of the aspects I like about the EC (and even with colored lighting in the CC) is to sometimes forego Nightsight in favor of area lighting (Personally, I'd LOVE to change how Nightsight worked in the first place but that's another topic/thread). As of now I can wait to get one (or more) of the light items from the various serpents and use them either by remembering to pick them up during the day and drop/light them at night, or let them decay naturally and get more as they spawn as loot. However it would be nice to be able to lock down a few to the boat (any boat of any size)

    2. Boat positions for Screen up/down and left/right.

    Yeah I know this would be a HUGE art patch to do this with the way boats are done, but with mouse control of boats, it would make them much more maneuverable (and logically moving) as necessary. Plus we have those directions for characters and mounts already.

    While I cannot comment on the boat aspect of it as I do not have high seas and only have ever used boats to go forward 8 times and cast earthquake pretty much. I will say though that I always have liked the idea of non-night sight based lighting. Way back in the very early years of UO we used to use torches instead of night sight every now and then when doing dungeons runs. I always kinda wished night sight spells and potions didn't work in dungeons and certain other areas. I used to think UO after dark was a neat looking place.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I'd also like to see nets, crates, barrels, and other items locked down.

    On top of that, if the numbers of lockdowns are limited, I don't see a reason why they can't show all the time, along with canons.

    But, light items from serpents? What's that?

    Just random torches, candles and lanterns that they have on occasion as loot. Nothing special, just items that give off light (instead of buying them from a provisioner).

    Some other things.
    I'd really, really like to get the sounds of a ship, the tinks and rattles and seagulls cawwing, etc.
    Round shields for the sides for the old ships.
    More rigging/ropes.

    Oh, and I want to smell the brine. Is that possible? I suppose I could boil salty water...

    A long pole with a lantern on the end. Crafted or reward from quest. Has a timer or fuel consumption. Works like a skill tally bonus for anyone fishing withing 5 spaces of it at night. Besides a better chance to fish up rares also boost sea serps spawn rate. Or a stronger version of the sea serp that always has an MIB as loot.

    Depth charge explosive kegs for chasing deep sea serps up from the depths. Just a way to boost sea serp hunting with MIB chance. In the past was nearly impossible to keep up on doing MIBs. Lately the deep sea serp spawn rate is way low.

    I would be happy with the end of decay. I don't play as often as before, and would hate to lose my Navy due to decay:( Going to drydock my whale boat and orc ship and the rest of the navy as well. I'll keep my fisher quest boat afloat tho, don't want to lose the quest chests aboard.

    Ill add a ship Bell, Custom sails, barding deeds for ships...Im only into Pirating but i think that there's so much more they could do with High seas...Why not add whale fishing with harpoons for elder fishermen and up ? Swordfish ? hammerheads?

    I would love to have a swordfish trophy like they have in that new mag dock house.
