When you fight another ship... how do you fire at him exactly.
Like normally on a real ship there would be a guy to aim them higher or lower and adjust the horizontal angle abit (not sure of this).
Anyways i have played 2 pirate type games so far. World Of Pirates and Voyage Century.
In World of Pirates you simply push a button for either side of you ship to fire... this made for fast combat (twitch based fighting) the ships also moved fairly fast in that game... you could zig zag quickly to shoot at opponents runnign form you and to shoot with both sides of cannons aswell.
In that game there was only one kind of cannon and it was just #ships in your fleet and the # of cannons on each ship which lead to damage calculations.
In voyage century the combat zones are instanced (like potbs). You select the enemy ship you wish to fight and you steer you ship in to fight depending on the type of cannons you use... high angle or high range or something in between. You also have different types of cannon balls ect... You can try to wound all their sailors and board them, you can take out their sails and use high angle or long distance cannons where they cannot hit you back ect. They also have mines and special skills like ramming ect to make things interesting.
I watched some youtube vidoes of this game but it was still not very clear... all the footage was of ships directly beside eachother and stuff. I could not tell how you actually fight in pvp from the videos.
So i need clearification
