    1.Is there a specific problem with the Danish ferry? You have to control bother sides of the ferry and the sea zones adjacent to them.
    2. Check on Epicwar.com for older versions of AoN.

    Oh and I'm planning on adding a 12th player, Pink. They would choose in-game weather they would like to be Poland or Holland.

    Love the game. Need to add a ferry from North Africa into Spain, also need a Ferry from GB into Ireland. Peasants should be able to build cobble stones. Sea batteries should not need to be loaded with men nor need cobble stones and cost 0 food. Next thing I wanna mention is this game crashes with the gate and bring back the "Flank" please :thumbs_up:

    Also I think southern Ireland revolted in the time period, I could be wrong. Some music playing in the background would add to environment of the game. Grenadiers look fat too. Also Navy is kinda pointless in the game... because with the population they cost you could just go pure land army and just take land settlements, plus this gives you a less chance of dying. I would add in naval shore bombardment(with decent range and decent attack) and I would make it so Naval units could attack the ferry beacons. I would also up the trade routes income and food population. I could see this posing a threat to any nation that has majority of their empire near water. All I can say to this is give them extra sea batteries and have them cost 0 food and require 0 men to attack and up its attack. This would ultimately solve the problem.

    Also James7, you should have an option for workers to build cobblestone on regular cities as well, so you dont have all ur buildings scrunched up in one place, because then units will get blocked off when u make them.

    Also...Why do ships friendly fire each other? And how come Admiral units cant attack? I think you should make them to do so..Also, the coastal bombardment is weak...u should buff them for next vers.

    And increase the bombardment range and make sea batteries do more damage, cost 0 food and require 0 men to load.

    I've fixed the gates, and I will add flank back into the mix! :)

    Ferries shouldn't be attacked by ships. This removes the point of landing an army anywhere really. You need to make a d-day to take a ferry. I like it that way, seeing as the ferries can really screw someone like England over.

    I've added cobblstone across the map so it's every where that's appropriate for it. And I may added an ability that would allow you to create cobble stone but I need more testing on that.

    I've also removed food limit and am gonna add a "Re-Man Division" ability that cost 'Reserves" which is what I'm gonna replace lumber with. This ability re-mans your divisions to full strength for a price of 'Reserves'. It makes more sense to me than a food limit. Also lumber will be collected the same as gold but only from population buildings like villages, towns, cities. And I may start charging units lumber to be trained. To fit the system.

    Sounds good. D-day invasions can still be done. That's why you created transports right? The thing about ships being to attack would make you need to defeat the UKs navy before invading which makes sense and if you have naval suprerior it makes sense that you can land whenever u want. But lets be realistic here game wise... GB doesn't cannot create enough troops to defeat France without taking colonies around the world. Oh wait... you said you removed food.

    Well, my other suggestions still stand, up'ing sea trade routes and making coastal bombardment more dmg and a bit more range. Sea batteries costing 0 food and requiring 0 men to load. Also sea batteries/forts need cobble stones which sucks.

    Nice changes James, but are you going to make it so that ships dont friendly fire each other anymore? And have admiral units(including heroes) be able to attack other ships.

    Also, what i dont like is how come when u unload cannons or hospitals, they slow all units down around them? can u remove this?

    I kinda noticed that field hospitals heal way too fast. Takes a long ass time to kill a single unit when the field hospital keeps healing it. It's not too bad when you use the generals +40 attack but without buffs omg... speed should be reduced by 1/2.

    Actually you can set your own prefrence on the group slowing down problem. It's in the minimap buttons, just click the group one to make units scatter and not wait for slower units. I'm pretty sure that's it anywho.

    Yeah I'll make feild hospitals slower.

    And you want me to increase the income sea routes give? I was also going to add a bombarder ship that can blast away at cities and land units along the coast but is weak against ships, expensive and limited to a small amount.

    mmm sounds delicious. Nations like Naples, Portugal, Denmark, Sweden, Great Britain need more defense if you add this in though. Some more sea batteries on their land would be help counter-balance this. The new ship idea is good, but could be devastating for nations but mainly for Naples and Portugal. You don't want a Nation to be able to be killed just by these new ships so, I would recommend giving them a few more sea batteries and of course they'll need to build more later on.

    I don't know if you've done this yet but, I've made this suggestion a few times already. 0 food for sea batteries and no men required to load it.

    I 2nd Roguewave's Idea. Oh, have you ever thought of adding in Mercenary Camps into the game? Hired troops for gold coin but at inflated prices?

    If so, I recommend them being in only the Neutral Area's of the world map and not captureble.

    I think southern Ireland should be neutral during this time period.

    Also, what's the point of all these neutral sea batteries/earth spikes in the map? They aren't even loaded with men. Either load them with men or remove them.

    "And you want me to increase the income sea routes give? I was also going to add a bombarder ship that can blast away at cities and land units along the coast but is weak against ships, expensive and limited to a small amount."

    It should be based off of how many docks you own, and capped at a certain set number.
