Ultimate Admiral: Age of Sail
« on: December 18, 2018, 11:15:04 AM »
Just saw this while over on the Naval Action forum.  No details yet, but it looks nice.  Same people who do the Ultimate General series I believe.

  Looks pretty fun.  Sort of reminds me of the earliest Sid Meyer's pirates where you could land your musketeers and spike the guns etc. etc.

I agree, they need to focus on finishing Naval Action first, before they do more Ultimate games.

I scour the internet every other day looking for release info on Dreadnoughts...IIRC some kind of testing began about a month ago but I don’t know if it was alpha, beta, etc.

  They probably spoke to some marketting experts and it went like this:

  Marketting Experts: So what's this "dreadnoughts" thing?
  Developers: Is way to speak of...things...
  Marketting Experts: What kind of things?
  Developers: Predreadnoughts so far.
  Marketting: Oh I like that...kind of a thing before another thing..like pre-owned or pre-baked
  Developers: Exactly
  Marketting: so there were some kind of precursor ships, like aliens, but built in shipyards
  Developers: Exactly
  Marketting: Could some of them be aliens
  Developers: or vampires
  Marketting: like in Nova Scotia?
  Developers: Or other islands...maybe
  Marketting: Islands are a good idea...could we have more of those
  Developers: Sure
  Marketting: with pirates and vampires and aliens  -- it could be all new -- none of those are popular unlike say, cowboys or zombies
  Developers: No...no pirates...we had those...aliens and cowboys and vampires -- sure
  Marketing: and could have a catchy name like shampoo
  developers: sounds very good
  Marketting: again, shampoo isn't popular, but that's what's so good about it-- it goes with vampires, aliens and cowboys

  They are working on it.  It looks like Sid Meyer's Pirates! X10 but without the pirates!

Pretty sure that's either Man-o-War Corsair, or the Battlefleet Gothic games.  :))

Single player only has me concerned. As does it being so simple like total war naval battles, which were kinda passé. But I love the idea of landings. Will land battles be included? I cannot imagine this will be as good as naval action in terms of immersion? Unless we are building the ships to a complicated plan etc. what of the age of steam game from the same team?

  I think the working title is Command (because its the dullest title they could come up with and they want to stay away complex
real-time, rogue-like strategy-oriented sandbox names like Vampire Umpire Empire, or Cowboy Shampoo)

  PS...by the way Steam and Iron (or even Steamed and Ironing or even the Irony of Steam or the Steam of Irony) is a great name and should be used as a  working title
for any naval game...I think.
