Ship Selection

In the upper left of your Home Tab is your dock with all the ships that you have moored at this port. If you've accrued any Tow Permits They'll show here as well. This section displays what you have berthed in your slips/docks. In the beginning you'll find a Basic Cutter but that's just the beginning.

  • Your currently selected ship will be in blue on the left
  • The specifications for that ship appear directly below the big green SAIL button
  • You start with 5 slips. If you own any other ships they will appear to the right of your selected ship.
    • Simply left clicking on one will designate that your active vessel.
    • Right Clicking on your active ship brings up a window with slightly more detailed specs on your vessel
    • Right Clicking on any of your inactive ships brings up two options
      • Send to Fleet moves a ship from your docks into your active fleet (The ships that will follow along with your active ship)
        • These ships MAY slow down your sailing progress based on their sailing profiles
        • The ships in your fleet may help you in any battles that you get into
        • They will also provide you with additional cargo space.
        • Basic Cutters (Free) may not be assigned to fleet duty
      • Tow Request allows you to have that vessel towed (at a cost) to any of the other ports where you have an outpost.
  • Directly below the vessel specifications is a darker blue button that will allow you to sell the selected vessel back to the port for gold. (In the case of a Basic Cutter, 0 Gold) In order to do that there must be nothing on the vessel in terms of cargo or cannon.
  • Next to that is a button that allows you to list a vessel for sale at the price of your choosing.

Expand Docks

If you wish to increase the number of docks from 5 to 8 it will cost 250,000 Gold.
Going from 8 to 11 will cost 750,000 Gold.
Dock limits are per player, not per outpost

Outposts

Your Colonial Capitol gives you your first Outpost. You can establish more in any other friendly, Neutral, or Free ports but each outpost requires a permit.
The first Permit is free but each subsequent permit costs more.

Buildings

You may build up to 5 Production Buildings to harvest the resources of any of the islands on which you've established outposts. There is a limit of 5 production buildings overall, but each building has three sizes with expanded buildings producing resources faster and having more room to store output for collection (and delivery to your warehouse)

Perks

As you increase your experience you gain skills referred to as perks.It's up to you to choose which perks you will acquire. There are Battle perks, Economy perks and Fleet Perks.

Manage Crew

The Manage Crew section allows you to control how many sailors you have on your primary vessel as well as each of the ships in your fleet.

Chat

The standard set of Chat windows appear when in port but an additional section (Trade) is added.
