  • Give pets a happiness meter or something so their reactions change the more bad or good things you do to them. Idk kind of like training your pet. Either that or pet commands to annoy other players or take small loot. Maybe that's a bit too much but still would be cool.

  • If evil merfolk get added, I have an idea for a new loot item: The Tsunami Skull. It’s essentially just a sea-themed counterpart to the ashen winds skull, firing a high-pressure jet of water, dealing a bit of damage and insane knockback. Most importantly, it can be used to fill a ship with water, just as quickly as a chest of sorrow.

    Lene SmedLene Smed6 days ago
  • this is an awesome update, but what about things like scrubbing decks and death penalty? A good thing for death penalty is this: 1st sink: ship swaps close to death spot on an island, perfectly fine 2nd sink: ship spawn far away from death spot on an island and has less resources 3rd sink: ship spawn very far away on an island and is damaged and has less resources 4th sink: ship spawn very far away on an island and is very badly damaged with very little resources 5th sink: the crew spawn on an far away island with a new type of map showing which outpost their ship is on and which direction it is in and a rowboat that they must take to that outpost to find their badly damaged and has little resources once the ship is reached, the process repeats I think the death penalty would be better to not be a death penalty but more a ship penalty But this is a bit harsh so it would be better if you only go down a level if your ship is sunk by a player but if something like a Skelton or ghost ship sinks you: your ship spawn on whatever level your on (If it reset every time you got sunk by ai, it could be abused)

  • Still there is nothing to actually spend the money on.. I can't be the only one who thinks this? This game is completely centered around money, making money, stealing money, yet besides a new look for my cannons there is really nothing to spend it on. Honestly, that is the only reason I don't play this anymore, there is no reason to do anything, because there is no goal to work towards. And telling me to 'make my own fun' is just a shitty excuse for the fact that this game is empty. Honestly, If they were to add ANYTHING to spend money on besides a new colour for my sails then you'd attract alot more players. Even if they would add new ships that you'd need to buy. Different cultural designs for the existing ships, that would already be something i'd grind for, and then play.

Imagine how cool would be wearing outfit ot the boss you have killed! Or maybe you can create something like skeleton suit or curse that can make you look like a skeleton !

  • An update I’d love to see is one where you somehow incorporate keys into the game. Maybe a bunch of copies are discovered to exist. Or maybe they are stolen. You could add an extra part of a mission where you could go find the key and get more gold, but face a difficult challenge.

    TheCheesnadianTheCheesnadian7 days ago
  • I'm so glad to see these updates! But what do you think about my update idea? I would a new company, some kind of police thingy: If you sink another ship, which is as as big as you or smaller, a police brigantine could spawn near you, which would of course attack you. If you sink the police ship, you get it's decent loot. If you fight with this ship too much, (something like 8 minutes) it will call help: 2 police sloops and a police galleon. In a hard fight, you defeat them, you get tons and tons of loot, and if you were lucky enough and you first sunk a player ship with good loot, plus the first police brig, plus the 3 helper ships, you can get like 70-80k... Also, you get some reaper reputation if you sink a lot of police boats. But! If you can't sink the 3 helper ships in 15 minutes or maybe 20-25, I don't know, your reputation will go down at 3 random trading companies, depending on how much have you been over the 15-20-25 (idontknow) minute mark. If you sink during the battle, nothing happens. IMO the best spawn rates of the first police brigantine: As a reaper's bones emissary, the help of the brigantine will come earlier If you're not a reaper's bones emissary: Shores of plenty 20% The ancient isles 15% The wilds 10% Near the Reaper's hideout and in the Devil's roar: 0% Also If you ring the bell (this would give some use for it) you call the police. If you manage to keep the ship who attacked you in a close proximity, the police will attack them, if they sink, you get their loot + some police reputation, But if it's a false alarm or they manage to flee away then you get attacked by the police brigantine and it goes from the beginning. You can become a police emissary, this way you hear and see other's alarms with the bell on the map, and if you help them, you get reputation, And you have to sink reaper's bones ships. But if you go near the reaper's hideout, reaper's ships (with bots, not players, something like skelly ships but more black) will attack you Also these black ships will circle around the hideout, making it harder for non reaper emissaries to reach the hideout. And a small thing: you could add ropes, this way you can cut the bells of other ships, and you can repair harpoons and bells woth ropes. What do you think?

  • There seems to be a lot of occasions where there's people that likes to park at the Reapers Ridge where you get the reaper chest and take it to sell it,people like to park there boats around that area to steal the Reapers chest from others as they come up it makes it almost not worth going after the Reapers chest and ive talk to a lot of people about that and that's why there's not as many people going out to the Reapers chest

  • I personally have fear of the Waters and sharks/krakens but i dont think that staying at the surface will help. If you swim to an enemy ship in the surface, you are dead. Plus you will miss good loot from underwater ships, the best thing you can do is face it.
