Ahoy Pirate!

The information you are looking for can be found in the SeaFight Bible:
Quote:
  • How is the Speed of the Ship calculated?
<==I will now show you how that is done.==>

Every Ship got its own average Speed…
In this example we will base our calculations on the regular Pearl-Ship.

A Pearl-Ship has a maximum speed of 25 knots.
With a (Elite) Gauger you can even speed that up to 30 knots.

First you need to know that every crew-member and every Item you carry is slowing you down a bit.
(How much that is needs to be ascertain by the “Captain” and that is you!)

The best “Gold-Sail” will gain your speed by 15 knots!
Our ship can hold three of them so we are gaining 45 knots.
The max speed of our ship is 30 knots (inclusive a Gauger)
and therefore we do have 15 knots too much.
==>But they are not useless…<==
As I previously said:
“every crew-member and every Item you carry is slowing you down a bit”

All these items are eating up your knots and they take the remaining knots first and as soon as that is exhausted they will use the knots you need for sailing around and that will result in a slower ship.

A little demonstrative calculation.

3 X 15 = 45 (Gold-Sails)
You carry items which are slowing you down be 18 knots.
Items are primary knots taker:
45 – 18 = 27 (knots left)
Therefore your ship is just going 27 knots.


This was the general Speed-Calculation!


But what about the Speed-Glitters?!?!


The Speed glitters are Ship-Related…
They will be added to your ship.
Knot by knot you can speed up.
So you can have ship-related additional speed.

A little demonstrative calculation.

3 X 15 = 45 (Gold-Sails)
You carry items which are slowing you down be 18 knots.
Items are primary knots taker:
45 – 18 = 27 (knots left)
You ship did collect 8.6 knots in Speed-Glitters.
27 + 8.6 = 35.6 knots
Therefore your ship is just going 30 knots and you still can carry some more stuff without slowing down.

Loosing HPs can slow you down !

If you wanna know how much it is you need to ascertain it because you are the “Captain”!
Loosing knots by loosing HPs can be compensated with Speed-Glitters as well.
(You just need to have enough.
...and when you get sunk, your speed is reset, to be sure to keep hunting for speed points!


Happy Sailing.
