Ships

Your ship controls like a steamship, with a rudder for steering and an engine telegraph to control speed. Fuel and supplies are finite resources. Running out of either may leave you in terrible peril.

As of game version 0.5.2.1473, you can now give a name to your ship. You can do this when you buy a ship or rename your current one by clicking on its name on the bottom-left corner of your Hold tab in your Gazetteer.

Controlling the ship[edit | edit source]

The Arrow keys are used to pilot the ship. While the Left arrow and Right arrow steer the ship left and right, the Up arrow and Down arrow move forward and backward accordingly. By pressing Up arrow or Down arrow twice, the ship gets additional speed in forward or reverse respectively. This speed is denoted in top left corner in the "Engine Order Telegraph" EOT display that also shows current hull strength.

Alternatively the W, A, D and S keys can also be used. The W, A, D and S keys mirror the functions of the arrow keys. They can be used exclusively, simultaneously as well as in conjunction with the arrow keys automatically and without adjusting settings and using default key bindings.

Additionally, controls can be reviewed and modified as needed by opening Main menu then selecting Options then selecting Edit Keybindings.

Purchasable Ships[edit | edit source]

There are currently seven types of purchasable ships available for the player to control. You start off with the Ligeia-class steamer at the Wolfstack Docks, but can exchange it for another ship at any Shipyard.
