General Discussion / Returning Player

I last played maybe 6 months after the Lumberjack was released.  What has changed?  Is this forum still even an active place to be?  Are the servers still overrun with Russians?

World / Fleshing Out the Lore of Sunken Ships
« on: July 21, 2013, 11:01:43 pm »
I've been away from the community for a few months, but was very much reminded of Guns of Icarus when I got my hands on a copy of Last Exile.
The large airship battle scenes are incredibly epic--too epic for the wood-and-balloon combat context of the current age of GoI.  It did make me think about those giant rusted relics on Dunes and the metropolitan ruins of Labyrinth, as well as the enormous ribs on Duel.  The initial combat is actually ships opening up their side armor and using steam-powered muskets to fight American Revolution-era line-against-line battles.  It's an interesting intersection of chivalry and, in some cases, victory by exploitation of those practices.

I'm unaware of any substantial existing backstory to the current state of affairs in the GoI universe.  If nothing else, I wanted to share a great series in the same vein as this game and serve it up as idea fodder.

Feedback and Suggestions / SPOILER tags for the Forums

I'd like to suggest SPOILER tags (content is hidden unless SPOILER button is clicked) to prevent obnoxious quote pyramids and image quotes from needlessly cluttering the forum.

I know that you all didn't build your forums from scratch, and as far as I can tell this functionality isn't implemented/doesn't exist in the current build.

Recently, after the patch/server downtime on your 24th of May, and just before it, I have had 10-15s lag spikes, latency drops (the screen clears to just me, with a wrench, or not me at all, on the blue-fade-to-sand-orange gradient), and outright drops where I am fully disconnected from the game.

I did not have these problems before the second-to-latest patch, networking, framerate, or otherwise.  After the latest patch, they got worse.

EDIT:  How do you want me to gather data to address this?

Q&A / Actual Numbers for Gun Stats

Can't find the location or link for the table for side-by-side comparison of weapons with real numbers, not little pips. Also, is this thing updated?

This is the old forum thread.
