    How much control do you have over the running of your ship? I mean, how much of a sailing simulator is it? Can you haul in, or let loose, the sails? Or is it just a matter of steering? I’m fascinated… I come from a family of sailors, y’know. Though I didn’t get much of that gene.

    I’m not sure about other ships, for mine it’s just a matter of steering, and finding the ‘sweet spot’ with the wind. And not dropping the anchor when I try to moor. Again. I can also take on passengers, and they do help my speed since I have oars, but they don’t have to actively do anything.

    Ah, oh well, it was a bit much to hope for in an MMO…that they’d put in a whole boat simulator. It still sounds really fun though! Thanks for the info!

    I just got a lot of looks in the bus because I had to laugh so hard at your description. The image of sailing… *wheeee* *phump* into the coast, with your ship sliding far onto land, so you have to drag it back into the water…. Oh, and the anchor… you do know they’re supposed to be chained to the ship, right? 😀

    I don’t play WurmOnline but I love reading your posts about it. This one flat cracked me up! Reading your posts makes me want to try it but I know it’s not the game for me. Enjoying your blog!
