Is the inventory of a purchased ship saved after exiting the game?

  • I'm very interested, if I buy my own sloop and take a lot of thing into the ship, for example, cannonballs and etc, will it remain on my ship after leaving the game? Or even with my own sloop I must every time buy or find those items?

    No, it will not remain.

    Meh, it's sad, very sad. I was hoping that this problem will be resolved by buying my own ship :(
    Do you know, is there any chances on adding this feature by Rare?

    I'm sure, a lot of people almost tired of collecting food and cannonballs every session. Even if I buy those items for my crew, I would like not to lose leftovers. Why my ship damage is saving, but inventory is'nt, I'm so frustrated :/

  • It's not that bad now with the Captaincy update. You can purchase stores from the shipwright or a storage crate from the Merchant Alliance, and with the new quick-store/take feature with containers you can load up all the stores from an outpost fairly quickly. There's a little cost associated with it, but the choice to work that cost is part of the gameplay.

    My feeling is that they're handling the supplies aspect of running a ship pretty well.

    No. And I empathize your frustration because I would like to save lantern flame colours and CCB's for cosmetic reasons.

    Gamers are gonna be gamers and this would absolutely be abused.

    Mainly because of the design choices the dev team made and how the update will be now, unless it is changed in the future, which I don't think it will. I personally like it that you can now buy supplies both from the shipwright and the merchant alliance rep. Buying from those two, it is more than enough to sail out, you get 100 cannonballs already just from buying them at the outpost and it's fairly cheap also, about 30k gold for all the supplies total.

    If you don't want to waste leftovers after a gaming session, fill up a rowboat with your remaining supplies or a storage crate and leave it at the outpost where you log off. Sure you will not retain those supplies, but you can rest easy, thinking you just made another pirate's day, maybe someone who just logged on for their first time will come across an abundance of supplies. :)

    Being nice in this game here and there can help alot to accustom new players and help them stick around for longer, since the first couple dozen hours are the roughest on any new players and a lot of them don't stick around. This is mostly because when they gather loot and a more experienced crew happens to cross them, most of the time they get sunk and their loot stolen. It's incredibly demotivating and most people up and leave the game at that point.

  • I totally do this, @kozakderg, and always arrange my leftover storage crates with all the extra supplies by the Merchant Alliance. A few times there've been four or five open treasure chests at the gold hoarders - soo cool to imagine what their adventures were ...

  • @garbhchu , yup, you're right, yesterday I was surprised, that I can buy those items in shipwright too and for low price. Thanx!

    @kozakderg , I agree, nice pirate - best pirate in the sea. Yesterday I meet few pirates, they was emissary of The Gold Hoarders and I was wondered - they doesn't steel my crates and even wish me a good day :D
    I wish more players were so nice and kind
