Re: Everything lost

Been there, done that, suffered through it. Lucky you, you really weren't that far into the game. Still, it sucks. DO NOT LOG INTO GOOGLE PLAY IF YOU ARE RUNNING RELEASE 2.5.0. It WILL hurt you. IMHO the only possible advantage of Google Play is the Achievements rewards, but they've never worked any...

Re: Progress Lost Please Help

Do NOT log into Google Play with release 2.5.0. Every time I do, I get bitten, and lose levels, ships, upgrades, etc. They're working on it, but it's still a problem. Your game will save to the Cloud without Google Play. I was able to install the 2.5.0 game on another device and get my current game...

Re: game questions other than "how do I do ~~~?"

it's still with me here in January, on release 2.5.0. It doesn't hurt anything, and it's a bit interesting to watch. So yeah, low priority. Sometimes I have 3 or 4 blinkers sailing around at the same time! :-)

Re: what damages Affinity?

I'm more about trying to understand it than to critique it. And I think I've got it figured out at this point. No matter how hard you try to get Affinity up to the maximum, the never ending squabbles between the factions will make it wobble a bit if one faction has more trades out there to be fulfil...

Re: Beware The Mark Of Caine

And here's an interesting addendum: whatever version got reloaded, even though it says 2.5.0, I have lost the ability to name my ships. Gone. Huh??

Beware The Mark Of Caine

If you see this, you know you've been hosed. Sometimes you'll get hosed just a little, sometimes you'll get hosed a lot. But when something strange happens, and you see that all your Affinities are exactly in the middle, it means that the gremlins in the game or in the cloud or at Google Play have b...

Re: Monthly Competition: December 2018 ~Favorite Moment~

Another favorite moment is when all the settlements want the same item, and lots of it. I can just load up a whole ship full, and sail around and sell the whole thing off, making lots of gold in just a few minutes without much effort. After I take care of all the cash sales I do the sales that trade...

Re: Monthly Competition: December 2018 ~Favorite Moment~

As a long term player I spend a lot more time being a merchant prince than I do being a rascally pirate. Trade ends wars. Trade makes everyone happy. Trade builds affinity. Trade makes me a fortune in this game. And the best trades happen when you have the best affinity, so to me one of my favorite ...

Re: Monthly Competition: December 2018 ~Favorite Moment~

I used to think these kind of things were among my least favorite moments, but now I laugh at them, because I'm wise to the game. Nice try, ye scurvy landlubbers, but ye won't catch the Panda Pirate napping on the job!! So it is kind of a favorite moment. What we have here are 6 "sucker quests" at H...

More Artifacts??

I've been finding artifacts here and there for the past couple of days. Release 2.5.0. They don't seem to award me with any gold or gems or chests, even though there is a tiny treasure chest icon on the map over the artifact. What do these things do? Way back in the beginning of the game, I know we ...
