Ahoy landlubbers!

Today we've got an exciting new update for you all! Any pirate worth their salt loves a good boarding, swashbuckling with your enemies on their deck while the wind whips around you. However, boarding was difficult to stop with how easy it was to get on another team's ship.

Too many pirates were teleporting around, dipping on and off the deck. These wormhole jumpers will have to a find another hobby as of today because we are proud to introduce ACTUAL ladders (or well, ropes)!

Here are the full patch notes:

Ship ladders:
  • Ship ladders have been completely overhauled and now include a climbing animation
  • Ship ladders now require you to hold interact (E) to climb all the way up to the deck
In-game crew locking:
  • You can now lock your crew during the match (press escape and navigate to crew management)
    Note: please refrain from kicking players to create free spaces. If there is a chance a friend of yours will join later, simply keep your crew locked until (s)he joins the game. Then you can unlock and (s)he can join the team.
Gameplay:
  • Improved visual smoothness of getting onto ships from the air
  • Improved visual smoothness of getting onto elevators
  • Anti-Sail cannonball sail damage increased from 15 to 20
  • TNT damage radius decreased from 1700 to 1200
  • Normal cannonball, anti-sail, anti-cannon and trap shot player damage decreased from 100 to 60
  • Swivel cannonball player damage decreased from 100 to 40
  • Cannonballs (of any type) no longer cause extra damage when hitting the head (headshot multiplier disabled on cannonballs)
    _Note: cannonballs still do AOE (Area Of Effect) damage in a radius. A normal cannonball will now deal 60 damage + 30 AOE damage on a direct hit, for a total of 90 damage.
    All the damage values can be found here: https://blazingsails.fandom.com/wiki/Cannon_Projectiles_
Sounds and effects:
  • Added sounds to ladder climbing and vaulting onto the deck
  • New hammer repair sound
  • Added smoke puff to mast repairing
Key binds:
  • Added an extra / separate key bind for picking up loot
Bug fixes:
  • Incorrectly loaded characters no longer have an outfit (brown jacket, black bicorn, one sandal) but are now in default clothing (only pants)
  • Sprinting headbob no longer plays while using the world map
  • Fixed a bug that caused pirates to be wearing white wrist wraps when not having any hand slot items selected for the first time
  • Fixed a bug with ship saving and selecting in the main menu
