I tried buying one of the new ships. Had just guided to Guild level 200, and I had more than enough plat and shards deposited at the airship merchant.
I could not buy the deluxe (shards) versions of the new ships.
I therefore settled on a basic Man-o-War (the largest of the three new ones - Frigate, Cruiser, Man-o-War.)
The ship itself looks very large and pretty cool - (pirate) hats off to the ship designers.
When I am onboard, the text switches to channels named 'Cruiser - Advice', 'Cruiser - General' and so on. Looks a little odd - should the channel be called 'Man-o-War'?
Hit the button to reveal hook points, but they didn't show up until I changed decks.
Could not place any amenities - clicked on the now visible hookpoints, but this had no effect on any of the first/second/third decks. I did not try placing anything in the cargo hold.
So I logged out and back in.
I showed as being on location 'Cruiser' in the login page, not 'Man-o-War'.
I could now place amenities on the second deck, but the first and third decks were still not working.
I logged out and back in again. Could now place one or two amenities on the first deck, but the hookpoints then went dead again.
I placed a throne room on a side room (small hookpoint) on the first deck, and promptly got stuck in part of its scenery. I teleported to the harbor and then re-entered the ship.
Nothing was visible on the top deck apart from First Mate String Error, the Captain and the buffs button - no hook points etc. Should we be placing the Bank/Auctionhouse/Mailbox on the closest deck and going down to that deck to use them, or will they appear on the deck if present on the ship somewhere?
I also noted that it assumes you will be buying everything from personal funds as opposed to guild funds.
Will you need to be an officer to place/change/buy amenities, or to use guild funds?
