    Naval Action

    Take literally all of my money

    I'm not ashamed to say I came a little when I saw HMS Surprise







    We have started in February 2013. Naval Action is being developed by professionals who participated in production of S.T.A.L.K.E.R, World of Tanks, IL-2, Rise of Flight and other less important games.

    Game will feature (eventually):

    Multiplayer and Co-Op
    Authentic ships
    Realistic ship combat
    Trading, exploration and crafting
    Global conquest

    Yes.

    But will it be nearly as difficult and demanding as actual sailing? "Realistic" isn't a term that means much nowadays.

    Was just bemoaning the fact the no one had the balls to make a game like this. A lot will ride on how 'realistic' they actually mean. If it's just WASD movement again I'll be disappoint. Needs at least some skill in setting sails and rigging properly - ship fitting arguments 18th century style.

    If the answer to this question is favourable then I am excite.

    A game with a similar idea to Elite with ships with full on simulated sails, rigging and winds would be (probably very financially unsuccessful) great.

    According to the blurb on the website you will be able to manually control all of the sails on the ship or use a WASD auto-sail thingy in the same kind of vein as war thunder.

    Edit :

    From the RPS article : "Right now Game-Labs seem to be drawing more structural inspiration from the likes of EVE Online, War Thunder, and Pirates of the Burning Sea, than SH, but tantalisingly, they have admitted that “The systems, render technology and combat mechanics we are currently finishing will allow [the development of a] hardcore single player ship simulator with sail and yard trimming, individual sail control and deep crew management.”

    Looking at the forums really made me wary. So few game elements are anywhere near cemented, and the developers seem to have no actual clue about how to make a game rich with progression or how to strike a balance between pubber amateurs and other players and their opinions. If you start out with a theme and just add gameplay depending on input from the loudest voices I'm fairly certain things will go to shit. If I had the motivation for it, and thought others would agree and pull weight, I might have aired the idea that us the fhcers ought to advance some form of own design where they are still asking for input. But that sounds suspiciously much like effort.

    edit: But I'd do it.

    That said, this game might not be giving much away so far but I am deeply interested in seeing how it develops.

    So i'm not pumped enough to read through poorly translated devblogs and reading russian ones is beneath me. Is there some mechanic planned to design or at least refit a ship?
    Because sailing only those that existed would get boring pretty fast and also deprave of vast meta possibilities.
