Better Shipyards

We have completely reworked the Grapeshot Shipyards so that they work with all ships (Old Vanilla, Modular & Mod ships).

All shipyards now also function as storage boxes (components for ships can be deposited)

Skins for vanilla ships (e.g. mahogany - in the picture) can also be made in the corresponding shipyard, these only have a different visual appearance, no better stats or similar.

Ships cost gold depending on their quality
Ship costs are significantly lower than on the Offi (10k gold, instead of 50k gold)

The maximum cost is limited to 200%, as the ship quality, accordingly 200% ships cost e.g.:
Trireme 16k Gold (100% Price 8k Gold)
Brigantine 8k Gold (100% Price 4k Gold)
Galleon 20k gold (100% price 10k gold)

The ship quality depends on the used blueprint of the ship. You can find it when you loot faction ships.

If you build a ship without a blueprint, it will always have 100%.

Better Sails

Similar to the Shipyards, we have replaced sails with our own variants in order to be able to do proper balancing...

Speed sail:
New Stat SailOpenCloseSpeed: Determines the opening & closing speed of sails.
Wind radius increased from 84 degrees to 90 degrees!

Handling Sails: Visual improvement of sail orientation (sail in the wind, not like GS).

In our donation store you can have Company Skins created for the respective sail types, which are then different than paintings in HD and can display significantly more colors! 

New type of sail: butterfly sail
Butterfly sails are "hybrids".
They offer the advantages of handling, speed & weight sails and are therefore an all-rounder, which is of course significantly weaker in the respective area than speed, weight or handling.
Can have stats/values in:
- SailEffectiveAngle
- SailMaxMovementWeight
- SailAcceleration
- SailTurningEffectiveness
- SailOpenCloseSpeed

New type of sail: Frontsail
On some ships another sail can be attached at the very front, depending on the ship this is purely decorative or also contributes to the speed!
Can have stats/values in:
- SailAcceleration
- SailOpenCloseSpeed
