I thought I had figured it out on my own before I read your post, but I was sliding down the wrong backstay.

For those of us who aren't math majors or computer gee... geniuses, maybe a note would be helpful-

Turn 79
Game Time: Day 1, 18:00 hours
BACK

aaah, no it is not that it means Day 1, 18:00. Forget that. It just means that, in this battle, since its start, have passed "x" hours and "y" minutes.

We couldn't start the battle at 00:00, nor would be able to carry it for longer than 24 hours to reach a supposed day 2... maybe when we have that strategic, big scale game....... but not for now my friend. So forget the maths you don't need. Just read what it states, and that's all you need my friend

Ok, but for discussion sake
 
I know someday we will have a formula that will adjust shadows on the deck according to the year, season, and hour, but until then why not have the clock remind us what time of day it is in the battle so we know how long we have till it starts to get dark (and when the grog is served out)?

angle of fire?

Does anyone know how the angle of fire from a ship is figured?
1. Is it exactly 90 degrees or is it slightly greater?
2. Does it project out from the foremast & the mizzen or from the bow & stern?

It is a 10 degree arc I believe.

Is there a computer problem today other than being slow?

In game 95/ Turn 27, I've got a ship, hms alexander,
pointed directly at the enemy, le vanguard,
at only 260 meters, Targets is on, but I can't get a red square no matter what I try.

The Vanguard is a captured ship. As such no ship may fire at her.

Captured ship-

Thank you, simple answer.

1. How does one know that if you don't see it happen? I wasted time getting into position to fire on that ship.

2. Why, that rule? I believe ships were taken and retaken often, which meant a fight.

The reason that you cannot fire on a friendly ship, that was captured by the enemy, is that only a few enemy crew are on board. You would be killing more of your own crew if you fired cannon at them.

This does bring up a different idea though. Right now if you want to recapture a ship you must ram it first. However, if you got close enough you could use small arms to try and kill the enemy crew without overly endangering friendly crew.

You need to turn Flags on on the map, then you can see who owns which ship and confusion is impossible

If you have time to write it down, it isn't important!

Captured ships' names appear in gray fonts.

Can a notice be placed by your ship is someone else has entered a move for you?

I have missed several turns of game 100 now because the game turn timer was always at finished with English ships not yet moved. I had no idea that my ship was being moved because someone was moving it as soon as the game turn advanced. Since I have several other games going on I was not entering the battle screen to see that ships had moved. I find this quite rude behavior since I was on every day, but never had a warning that I needed to retake control of my ship.

Hi Zarby  :)

I was moving the Monarca  :P at Trafalgar... It always appears with 'move' option after the end of the turn so that means that his original captain hasn't give it orders... I thought he could be on holidays  ;)

By the way, always his original captain can enter in their ships and give them their orders which remain over anyone  ;) When a turn finished with the ship with orders from his original captain, in the next one, 'move' optinon were not yet available... unless the captain was out again.

So, don't worry, enter in game #100 give your orders to Monarca and wait a cuple of turns for it disapears 'move' option. You always has the control of your ship because your order will be the one that prevail, but y ou have to give it before the turn runs!

Excusme for moving your ship, but be quiet  ;) because i has taken care of her as it was mine... "we" have got some good points smashing enemy hulks! and now, giving close support to Wishgamer' Santa Ana  ;)

Best regards!


(May be the different hour could be a reason to 'move' optinon was shown after the turn runs  ::) )

I understand that the move showed up on the info screen, but I did not have this problem in my other 3 games. You could have let the ship stand without orders for a few hours. By repeatedly moving my ship as soon as the turn advanced I was unaware I was missing turns. I was looking for a no message next to my ship and not seeing it I was logging out. On a regular auction game like this players need to show more restraint.
