BetterShipyardsAndSails

Better Shipyards

We have reworked the Grapeshot Shipyards to function Better & Propperly with all Ships (Old, Modular & our Custom 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, they only have a different optical appearance, no better stats or similar.

Ships cost gold depending on their quality
Ship costs are significantly less Gold than on the Official Servers (e.g. Galleon 10k gold, instead of 50k gold)

The maximum cost is limited to 200%, like 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)

Of course, the ship quality depends on the quality of the shipyard (and its stats)!

Better Sails

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

Speed Sails:
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 Handling-Sail).

Sailskins:
In our donation store you can order Company Skins to be created for the respective sail types, which are then different than painting a sail as they are in HD and can display significantly more colors!

New Sailtype: Schmetterling-Sails
Schmetterling sails are “hybrids”.
They offer the advantages of handling, speed & weight sails and are thus an all-rounder, which is of course significantly weaker in the respective area than speed, weight or handling.

Can have stats/values in:
