TKF Presents:

-Naval Battle-


Featuring manual based cannon combat like in Sid Meyer Pirates and Corsairs! A nice alternative to standard battleships maps.

Short Description: This is an intense AOS ship game that requires skills to sink your opponents. Unlike other Battleships maps with autofire with weapons, this map do purely have 100% manual cannon fire in this fun cannonball game. The map also feature ship boarding.

AOS/RPG Style: While fighting the enemy empire, you have the option to open the supply route from motherland, travelling outside the main area to search for treasures in the west in the forbidden waters or to the east on the open ocean. Fighting the neutral hostile pirates might give you some extra gold you need to win the game.

Practice against AI computers or just play for fun. A complex AI which can provide some challenge, higher difficulty will give them more one time "bonus gold". However AI can't match up with the best players.


This map has a unique cannon combat system makes this map unique from other ships AoS/Battleships maps you have played where you trigger the shots by your hand and feel the joy when you make a lot of hits. The maps cannon system that makes this kind of a "snowball" game you can enjoy many hours of fun gameplay along with other players.

You can try out numerous of tactics such as doing short range tactic for successful hits, long range combat, fire based cannons to make enemy ships burn, boarding tactics, capture empire ships, ramming, trading, exploring hidden areas of the map etc... or you can just focus where the action happens.

This map has similar terrain to the battleships maps. Although it has shocking similarity to the battleships when you start the game, most items are remade and all weapon based items is replaced. My main intent with this map is to give battleships a more realistic cannon system which makes this more fun multiplayer game with a slower pace and a much different gameplay from the normal battleships maps

For new players, they can practice against computers, as they learn how to play the game by watching the computer.

More description
Moreover, all weapons is remade and turned into several classes:

Weapon Classes:
Ordinary Cannons: Standard cannons does good damage against ships and structures
Shell Cannons: Effective against ships, but is ineffective against structures
Missile Cannons: Like standard cannons, but do have extreme long range.
Anti-Crew Cannons: Does little damage, but kills much crew on each hit
Sail Ripper Cannons: Does medium damage and slows enemy ships
Fire Cannons: Direct hits causes the ship to ignite and cause burning damage over time
Siege Cannons: This weapon does bonus damage against structures.
Acid Cannon: This weapon does reduce the armor. It does only exist 1 acid cannon type weapon in the game.
Frost Cannons: This weapon has a chance to freeze a ship for 3 seconds.
Seeker Cannons: This weapon does have a proximity homing ability which follow its enemies.
Lightning Cannons: This weapon does have chain lightning ability upon impact.
Critical Cannons: This weapon does cause quadruple damage upon critical hits.
Shockwave Cannons: This weapon damage several units in a line and ignores obstacles and cliffs. Expensive but useful.
Torpedo: The submarines main weapon and it's only available for the submarine. It has a chance of ripping apart the hull of the enemy ship.

Repair wood: Limited to 5 charges, and does now replenish health over time instead of instant heal.
Hulls: Adds slightly more hp and damage reduction, but also reduces speed
Hull Reinforcements: Adds more armor to the ship.
Sails: Increases the speed of your ship. (doesn't consume inventory slots.)
Crews: Gives a certain stat bonus to the ship crew
Boarding Hook: Gives you the abilities to board ships and capture them.
Structure Kits: Builds a tower or a cannon fortress
Bomb: Places a high explosive bomb which does 7200 damage, but be careful so you don't blow yourself
Repair kit: Allows you to repair selected tower of friendly ship

New abilities:
Naval Mines: The lugger may lay mines, so unfortunate ships can trigger it
Infiltration: With the infiltrator you can steal enemy techs
Barrages: Some ships does have a barrage ability, which allows them to fire lots of cannons in selected area
Captain Cannon: Improves the ships front cannon. Bigger ship classes has more powerful front cannon.
Ramming: (Interceptor and ram hull item) Causes the ship to ram into another ship for damage. This damages both ships.
Boarding: (Destroyer, Pirate ships and grappling hook item) This causes your ship to do an attempt on capturing the enemy ship (hero ships are sunk).

Kill Assist System (New): Gives your teammates a percental share sinking enemy heros ship
Critical hit system: Gives you a chance of inflicting double damage
Multikill system: Gives you bonus gold for multikills and streaks.
Capture Abandoned Ships: Just move close up to the ship.
Burning System: Your ships might burn down if they are hit by a fire cannon. Using water item will remove the flames quickly.
Crew System: Mana shows how much crew your ship has.
Boarding System: Explained above
Damage System: Shows how much damage your ship has suffered in red numbers
Keyboard Movement System: Allows you to steer your ship with your keys, if you enter -move command
Cannonball System: That's a basic movement engine for the cannons

Different abilities: I've added a lot of new ships. All the ships have various abilities. There is over 21 ships to choose from.

New Hero Stats:
Carpenter Skill: Increases the effectiveness of lumber usage, constant ship repairs and slighly makes your ship stronger. Decreases the chance of making the enemy land a critical hit on you.
Accuracy: Makes your cannonballs spread less and make you aim better. Also increases the chance of landing critical hits by 0.5%.
Crew Strength: You loses less crew when hit by weapons and attacked, also it makes your chances for boarding more successful, also if you're boarded, you will more likely to surive the boarding

Boosts hero stats: The lumber is replaced with ability points. You get ability points when you level and when you kill enemy ships. This trainer look like an old paladin.

Stats increase: You gain 2 random stat increases for each level and the ship gets 1% increase of base hp (in strongmode it only gets 0.5% pr level). At level 26, you gain land crew ability, but you can always use -ul command.

Average: I know this isn't the best terrain, but it's playable for an AOS. It's very similar to the skeds original bs terrain. I have slightly changed the mainbase terrain.

    Haven't you uploaded this before? If yes, use the Update button whenever you wish to upload a new version. The button is located above the Map's Name.

    i suggest you make the ships sink more slowly and make water splash out while sinking...
    when hit by cannon balls wood should be thrown out!
    make the navigating system with the keyboard controls more realistic! it shouldn't be like i press left key and it just turns to left in a second....it should move a bit front and turn slowly . i think this might help you in your future updates for this map ...

    Yep, but there's a major difference between Beta and this version in terms of map size and lagg.

    Also I can't make the preview picture to work on THW for some odd reasons.'

    I lack wood animation and effects to make that work. Splashes isn't a big problem.

    Also the key movement system is beta. It gives move orders to your ship, not trigger movement. Also it's not possible to get turn rate below 0.1, so the ships turn around pretty swiftly anyways... I think the keycontroll turn shouldn't surpass ships turnrate, but I haven't checked that part it myself yet...

    Also decreased all movement bonuses, so ships doesn't look like racerboats anymore. (Well, intercept still kinda does)

    Ahhh good game, And better terrain from the old Beta.
    You've outdone yourself on this one TKF, Good work!

    I haven't played it before, but, ill try it out on a single player test. If possible with your new "Xv0 defeat system"

    Good work though, I can tell it's good

    Well, TKF.. it they are same map with the only difference in size and lag. You should remove the version that you think is not the best.

    If you play on singleplayer and choose 0 computers, you should be able to test the game. It's the same in beta.

    I've removed it now.


    I hate trade atm - it's unbalanced!
    Trade Nerfing:

    I need to balance trading, cuz at current state the missions gives way to much money in comparison to when you not trade. about 5 times in difference. I'm going to at least halve the awards and perhaps make an enforced trade sharing system, that gives half of the trade share to the other players against the traders will. This way the other in your team will benefit from slightly increased income from the trade missions, while the trader itself keeps 50% of the gold.

    So basically trading will be much less profitable, but it still gives you abundance of ability points.

    There was no need to remove the other; one is a more expansive map and focuses on adventure and 'RPG'ing, whereas the other is solely confined to an AoS.

    Some of the other modes disagrees. Also the other version no longer exist on my computer :/ since I kinda expanded the same map. To late now...

    Anyways you have to wait 30 min from start until mid arena is revealed for mere mortals. Many players won't figure out a way to get outside the mid arena, as it requires some IQ. I've never seen a game so far where a player has figured a way to travel west, this seems to difficult for them to crack the 2 step puzzle (which isn't hard IMO)

    Also to the right side, 2 step puzzle (1 step if killing pirates isn't counted as a step)

    This is still an AOS type, many games are played without anyone traveling beyond off the normal AOS arena. Also it's a huge risk going on a adventure, since you lose ally vision and you're base might get owned meanwhile.


    I've updated to 1.02 and fixed a few things. It did take some time cuz my editor crashed :/

    I loved the original naval battle, gotta test this version out.

    Do you plan on releasing an "epic lag free" version of the beta? (with autofire cannons)
  11. TKF


    Nov 29, 2006
    What original naval battle? beta? or the Naval Combat version?

    No, have no such plans. Also I've deleted the beta at the hive, so it's a bit late.

    Also if I add autofire weapon and remove the manual weapon system, it will be "just another BS clone". So no!


    If you find bugs in 1.02, I would like to know.

    Tested it last night, and I was depressed to see a "private pirate dock"

    I will most likely never play this again, not competitve at all. All the ships are slow as shit and the ship abilities are organized rather poorly.

    What's bad about the pirate dock?

    Explain what's so bad about them?


    I greatly reduced the ships speed they will stay that way. This is not a racing boat map like all the other maps. Expect a very long game when you play this map.

    basically the fact there are pirates and black pearl ruin the game imo.

    the cast weapon idea is actually pretty cool, i like the way you set it up, but theres a bug. port and starboard side flipflop incorrectly (according to my friend) so when your facing downward it's still the "left" side of the screen, but not the ship.

    I played as trader and it was quite boring, no new trade routes.

    We both became pirates and ended up "losing" even though we werent allied to and couldnt see the south empire.

    The bottom door to the pirate dock doesnt work - trees in the way

    the ability "artillery" didnt destroy the trees

    It takes 15 minutes to get out of the pirate waters

    The east side "open ocean" is pretty dumb since the opening is on north side

    the pirate ships that are randomly scattered about my trade routes were super annoying and they basically just sat there till i got someone to kill.

    Basically the only thing I like thats changed is the cast-weapons, but even they don't work that great.

    Might I suggest, in order to organize hero spells better, keep them in a 'spellbook'?

    Starboard = right side of your facing
    Port = Left side of your facing

    I've tested this multiple times and it's working as it should.

    I haven't done anything there yet. But I'll maybe add more trade routes to far away locations. Perhaps motherland trade mission, Going to a random spot in west....

    Good thing mentioned this, cuz the trade system is still the old same and unchanged. I've only reduced some of the mission awards so trading isn't as imba anymore.

    You mean you wasn't allied with each other when you joined the pirates?

    When ALL players is pirates, there's basically no sides to fight, so win. Also I've not changed the victory conditions to fit the pirates.

    Their role is simply go against both empires and have fun and change which empire they want to attack, or both. Pirates is kinda 3rd team in this map. The purpose is not for the pirates to go against everyone. Yeah and I put the spawning location for the pirates quite far away, so it takes some time before you get out of the pirate hole.

    It jammed? Weird. But that gate can be blown if needed...

    There is 1 gate for south side and 1 gate for north.

    Isn't the current abilities enough?


    New version! 1.03! The currest cannon hotkeys AWSD. Currently the ships secondary abilities uses V and R hotkeys. I think the hero spells should be easier this way and slightly better organized than random hotkeys.

    I added 1 more trade mission for the trader, but that requires 90 trade points to start, and also risky as you might get the wrong trade item if you try to cheat :xxd:, but you can finish this in 2 ways, so it has multiple ways unlike the other static trade contracts! Doing this hard mission will unlock a new weapon.

    ops 1.02 loading image! xD

    Can you give me a clue on how 2 to use the mystic pearl???
    Also how do u open the west gates?? where the pirates cove is lol....use bombs ??

    There's things you have to figure out yourself. I'm sure you find out how to get into the west.

    I'm releasing a 1.04 version soon with another 2 pirate ships, and I'll fix the buy bug which prevents pirates from changing ships. Also going to add a win condition for the pirates, and you must defeat the pirates if some player which did betray their empire, just to make the game fair for those pirate suckers. (hah!! they don't have an army of ships, they're screwed!)

    Currently the 1.03 version used the ancient non changed win conditions which does not include the pirates. I'm going to change that!

    Must there be a pirate ship??? Else whats the use of having the flagship west where u cant enter cause there are no pirates
  19. TKF


    Nov 29, 2006
    You can get there without being a pirate you know. Getting black pearl is a cheap way of getting yourself shut off from the world when you can't pass the gates.


    Map size 127x127?
    That's bs! It must be confused by the camera bound expanding trigger.
