Hi there pirates!

It's update time again. We've got a few things for you all this week. The long awaited player reporting feature has been added. Pirates aren't the kindest souls, let's admit. But even pirates agree on certain lines that shouldn't be crossed. Spoiling the fun for others or spouting extreme profanity should not go unpunished. And thus, we will from now on review your reports and take actions accordingly to keep the seas as adventurous and fun as possible for everyone sailing on them. Actions may range from warnings all the way to server bans depending on the gravity of the offense.

Next to that we've got some new teleport effects, some more status icons and a brigantine buff!

Full patch notes:

Reporting:
  • You can now report players with one of 7 reasons
  • You can also enter some extra information text

In-game UI:
  • Added status icons for swivels, water pump, cork, teleporting and on ship
  • New ship icon (ship count top right) and on ship status indication icon
  • New player icon (in crew member UI top left and player count top right)
  • Status icons now turn red when on an enemy ship or when using enemy cannons, steering wheel, masts, capstan, swivels, ...
  • Flag banner UI is now screenspace making it easier to read
  • Added two crossing swords and a short animation to the prepare for battle screen

Teleport effects:
  • Added screen effect when teleporting
  • Added a white transition flash when the actual teleport happens
Gameplay and balancing:
  • Brigantine water levels now rise 30% slower making it a bit stronger
  • Entering enemy crows nests now takes 4 seconds instead of 1 second
Special flags:
  • Blackbeard flag added (we'll do a big country flag pass soon)
Bug fixes:
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the anchor to automatically drop each time you use the steering wheel
  • Fixed a bug that caused projectiles to not deactivate when hitting a player making it possible to hit two or more players with one projectile
  • Disconnects due to a server being in spawn selection will now show the correct disconnect popup message
  • Flag banners no longer show any text when the match has started
  • Fixed a bug that caused the compass sound to play when loading into a game
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes cut off some of the compass teleporting sounds
