"Ghost Ships"-Clones
« on: July 14, 2008, 07:44:59 »

Hi everyone,

i don't know if you have come accross this, but in multiplayer, sometimes random boats appear out of nowhere and follow you, litrally.

(I think i could have been the first person to ever encounter a "Ghost Ship", read below.)

My first sighting of a "Ghost Ship" (thats what i call them) was in Padstow, about a week after buying New Horizons, then about 3 weeks later, i was in Marseille with the Bugsier and a huge Ocean Star came out of nowhere and crushed me ::) and i sank :-[

But, since the new patch, it seems that the amount of "Ghost Ship" sightings have gone sky high! and that 3 or 4 "Ghost Ships" can be seen at one time! i was wondering if anybody here has this problem and if they know what it is caused by and if it will be resolved in the future of SS08.

Jack.

Maybe the Furie was a german u-boat,and its following you to torpedo you?, maybe they are kamikazees or real people trapped in the game that want to get out into the real world? This seems like a contreversial issue :). Not allowed to dwnload furie so cant see the ghost ships myself but looks from NathanC's pic that the ghost ships are all furies, so destroy the furie and destroy the people stranded inside your pc  ;D

That sounds interesting. Could you start a new topic in "Media" for that? Also, to warn people with slow connections, please include "WARNING - LARGE FILES" or something similar. Then no-one can complain.

I'll move this topic to General Discussions as well.

Yeah, I saw those. Heh heh.

But if RMS Gigantic is going to post a lot of images, it's best in Media with a warning. Aad The Pirate has done that very sccessfully with Elbe & Furie pictures.
