Commanders:

We are slowly pushing out a few updates here and there and wanted to let you know about one that should have just gone live (at the time of this writing.) We wanted to add some more realism to the game and map so when you cross over a large body of water (including fresh water and rivers, the ocean etc) your caravan will ride a ship across. This is an initial add-on that will act as a foundation for possible future updates, and will smooth the ride down south. (For what, I do not know.) Refresh your browser if you do not see the ships.

We also added in an Alliance-wide announcement that will tell all of your alliance mates the subject of an arriving alliance mail. (This will pop up in alliance chat.) Thanks to player Taryn Bzar for continually shooting message arrows at me concerning this enhancement.

Below you will see the ship types and graphics. Thank GM Cerberus for more fantastic art, and GMs TC and SC for all of their hard work! (Thank me for getting all of the credit.) 

Now back to battle people!

Yay for pretty ships!  I assume that this is basically an added graphic that in the future might represent something, but that actual movements speeds are not affected?

Also, how do animals, faction troops move across water?

Faction troops use boats and animals swim

The military ship icons are, in my mind, slightly too small to see.  If possible please increase their size just a bit. From a distance above 5 or 6 squares they just look like little mounds of grey.

I think it's going to be hard to differentiate between trade, military and diplomatic movements.  I assume the diplomatic ships will be invisible if not within diplo visibility?

I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.
