One week Captains!
Next Tuesday is the launch of the Kickstarter. It’s crazy to finally be here but the time has arrived. Once again, thank you all so much for your patience on this literally decade long journey to get this game we all love back out there and into all of our hands.
From here to the start of the Kickstarter I will post a blog everyday, showing off things from the Kickstarter and talking about what to expect.
Before showing anything, I just want to make sure everyone is aware that the Kickstarter will launch August 2nd at 10am PDT.
Alright, onto pretty.
The first thing I want to share this week is that we will have colored render images of different ships for the Kickstarter.
These will show off the paint schemes of the different factions in the game. These will do two different things. First, they look great and they make the whole Kickstarter page look amazing. Second, a lot of the box renders have gray miniatures as they are just mock ups. We want to make sure everyone knows that these will be pre-painted and we also want people to see what they will look like.
As the Kickstarter goes we will continue to show off more of these guys through updates, especially as new ships are unlocked.
I’ve got a lot to show over the next week so that’s it for now.
See you tomorrow Captains,
The incredible power of Great Britain is seen in its control of one quarter of all land on earth. But what is Great Britain’s weakness? The fact that they control one quarter of the world. The shipyards of Britain were well aware of this when they began work on the modern British Leviathan. The goal of the British navy was to be able to finish a fight before it started, as they could not afford to have their ships needing to be put in for repairs when they are the only ones guarding a colony or a sea lane.
The solution to this was the HML Cairo. The guns were made and the crew trained in order to have the best long range accuracy in the world. From more detailed turning to better stabilization, the Cairo could force an advancing ship off before it could ever land a shot. However, this does come at a price. For if a ship closes, those very things put in place to make their range so impressive work against the Cairo up close. But so far the Cairo has made sure that doesn’t happen. Only time will tell if it can keep that up.
