View Full Version : Expanded Winds Speeds

A while ago, Jonas was lamenting on the lack of a slow ship speed. Here are my modified Wind Rules for a wider range of wind, and rules for allowing a ship to move at a slower speed. In the instructions, you may notice mention of the "Spilling Wind" box. This is a box I have added between Backing Sails and Struck Sails on my mats.


Here is my expanded Wind Gauge:

That is a very comprehensive evaluation of how we may include wind in our actions Dobbs.
Thank you for all the effort you have put into this to give us even more realistic effects of wind on sailing ships.

I wouldn't say I lamented the lack of slow speed. I merely observed that a ship, even at the lowest speed, quite quickly moves the maximum range of cannons and turn the ship quite much between broadsides.

I'm not sure it needs to be addressed, but it's an interesting take on the problem you've taken.
