What do you miss most from earlier versions of SoBAoP?

This is your chance to sound off. I'm not talking about bugs, or whether you think you got stung by doing the 2.6 upgrade.

But there are a fair number of features that the old game had, release 2.5.10 and earlier, that the new game does not have. Yeah, I could run down the whole list, but I want to know what YOU miss.

If you haven't been playing SoB:AoP [ Ships of Battle: Age of Pirates ] for that long, I'll make another post about what you would like future versions to have.

I'll start you off with a general rant about the ships:

Once upon a time, every ship in the shipyard could take the custom skins you could win in Endless Mode. Now, not a single new ship can take them.

Once upon a time, every ship could raise or lower it's sails in battle, and you'd see the mains and the jibs open up or furl. I thought that was a great detail and I miss it.

Once upon a time, every ship could be renamed by the player. Not all ships have this ability these days.
