Crafting making ships and airship mounts And Ship Battle Pvp

New world can add crafting recipes for classes to be able to make ships and airships to sell on the trading post.
As new world expands players would need mounts to traverse zones.
These Zones would need players to use mounts to travel through the sea
flying through the clouds.

  • While In the Air there would be flying monsters that would attack the ship and invade.
  • open world mini boss that flies in the air
  • Flying monsters can damage the airship and destroy it
  • Players can use airship weapons to damage the monsters

Party vs Flying Boss from their airship:

Ship mount Openworld sea exploration:

Day - Dusk (sunset) - Night - Dawn (sunrise) - Day ( cycle of day to night ) (clockwise rotation)

  • In New world in a clockwise direction, Day would be 100 minutes then it will be dusk for 30 mins then Night for 50 minutes, Then Dawn for 30 minutes then Day again for 100 minutes.
    ( during the day to night cycle there will be a random chance for a random weather effect which will last for 30 minutes )

  • ( rain and wind, rain and lightning, Fog and mist etc ) these can occur during any time day or night time. They will have 30 mins duration example ( rain and wind for 30 mins ) then the weather would return to normal.

  • weather effects like snowfall and blizzards can be the exclusive weather effect to great cleave and any snow zones and sandstorms for brimstone sands and sand zones.

  • Weather effects (would change with different time zones in the open world)
    These weather effects will occur randomly and will last 30 minutes then the weather will return to normal
    storm, lightning,
    rain, windy
    sunny and clear, windy
    snowfall, icy blizzards, ( only to great cleave and ice and snow zones )
    sand storm ( only to brimstone sand and desert zones )
    mist and fog
    sea tsunami, tornadoes, and mini to giant waves ( water effects that occur with the weather effects)

The weather effects would have visual effects and sound effects to add to the atmosphere.

Players can customize their ships

  • apply different theme skins and dyes: to
  • the equipment armor and weaponry
  • flag sails
  • steering wheel
  • figurehead
  • capstan
  • ship hull

example of ship skins for equipment: ship components

The ships would be able to move through the sea and ram itself into opposing ships.

  • 5 to 6 teams to battle each other.on the sea
    red team vs blue team vs green team vs yellow team vs purple team vs orange team

all members of the blue team would have blue health meter

  • game mode objective to win: sink the other players ship Or Destroy their entire pirate crew ( each crew mate can have 1 life revive, after dying they can spawn into the match, when it reaches zero they are out of the match and can only spectate )

  • see more different mission objectives further down on this post
    ( objective 1 or objective 2 or objective 3 completing any of these would make that team win )

  • the ship crew can cross to the opposing company ship with a swivel harpoon gun or use grappling hook, and swim and climb into their ship to defeat the players.

  • They can damage opposing company ships with cannonballs, spear harpoons, and airborne motor blasts ( and the many ship weapons )

  • Crew members of the ship would be able to reload cannonballs and repair the ship’s health. ( repair damage to the walls and mast of the ship and put out fire with water, )

  • After the match, The ship would need to be repaired which would take resources.

  • The Winners would gain resources be gold and other crafting and food items, ammo items, blueprints ( schematics ) etc

Airships flying mounts would be needed to reach zones that are like a Mountainous Castle
or a Floating city in the Clouds.

castle built on the mountains: cannot be reached by ordinary transport
this castle is built on the mountain by the faction of the sky, these warriors have adapted to the cold climate.
This faction have unique technology using gears and engineers to build airship and other flying machinery. ( the airships have weapons and armour equipped ).
Castle built on the mountains:

Floating city of jewels: It is said that this mysterious city appears and vanishes at random, legends say that it is but an illusion, not reality. when sailors try to land on the city they fall through it into the ocean below.

The sky factions transport: built by the sky faction using technology that allows sailors to venture in the clouds and the horizons.

to make some species unique, after battling the underwater sea monster would hop out of the water and battle on land.

  • These open world boss monsters would have bounty quest players compete for monster coins

The open world mini boss can be one / two open world mini bosses which the player would verse simultaneously ( this would make the mini boss fight more exciting )

  • Npc fort towers that would use mortar blasts and cannonballs at players ship

    5 to 6 team battle
    5 to 6 ships ( 5 players on each ship )

  • completing any of these objectives would be a victory for the team

players would unlock more ship upgrades and weapons by using ship blueprints
(ship schematics)

  • The ship schematics can be like housing schematics, discovered in the open world and from activities

  • To add more rarity to the blueprint, after a player uses the blueprint to craft their ship design / weapon / armour, the player would need to re-acquire the same blueprint again, if they wanted the same ship weapon or armour or design again.
    ( as a single blueprint is used for the construction of one item only )

I agree with ships, but not flying ships, at least not in the near future.

However, I think this would be a wonderful addition if they made new islands to explore (Essentially adding new expansions.)

PvP Ship battles would be an amazing thing. Complete with Cannon fire etc. Additional lumber storage used to repair the ship, additional cloth for the sails etc.

Engineers can craft cannon ammo to be used.

I like this idea. Seems quite ambitious.

They could just copy archeage online ship battle and make a small tweaks. I think they are using the same engine with archeageonline. I think naval combat is doable.
