Still learning and got my Ship Stranded Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I have managed to get my ship stranded at Cenote Island in the Meridian Ocean.

I am very confused as to why.

Before I left, I was able to put in my route... which I thought would then allow me to go back and forth between Cenote Island and Saltstraum Rock.

I now know I did not have a proper map.

But how did I "chart the map" then? and why would it not let me do it again?

And if anyone knows of a map to Cenote I would appreciate you letting me know :)

Thanks

I'm sorry I can't help with charting you back, but the most likely reason for your not being able to chart yourself away from Cenote, is that charts age with time, and it may have dusted since your last visit.

It doesn't help you now, but when you have charts to go from one island to another, you should put them on the navigation table of your ship so that they don't dust as quickly.

I have it memmed and can chart you, but I don't often play Meridian. PM me or answer here with your pirate name and when you expect to be online, and I can help you. Look for Greylady. :)

Charts dust more quickly while placed on the navigation table of a ship.

When placed aboard a ship, charts age according to calendar days. When carried in a pirate's booty, they age according to login days.

Therefore it is possible to stop aging of charts by trading them to an inactive alt and not logging in to that alt until you need the chart again.

Maps always age according to calendar days, regardless of location.

Bump....
You can also prevent aging of Charts by putting the unbuyable ones in a Present (and naming it with the Chart name it contains.)
