Ship to Ship transferrs Reply to this Post

I think it's been mentioned before, but I'm not really sure of the status.

It would be hugely helpful to be able to transfer cargo from ship to ship. Especially with the mass colonization of emerald.

Ideally, we should be able to transfer between any ship, at the same location (port/league point).

For transfers between non-crew ships, an interface similar to the trading panel would be good for this, an officer on each ship would check a box to accept the conditions of the transfer.

For transferrs between crew owned ships, no confirmation should be necessary, so I'm able to transfer between ships without requiring another officer to be aboard the other ship.

If it's on "The (mighty) List" I might vote to have it moved up. - But then again, I have no idea what I might be asking to have dropped down ;-)

We Lubbers are jest now getting to experience the benefits of using shoppes to do ship to ship transfers. Maybe Uzi needs to start a pay per transfer service in Alpha.

With the player owned shoppes so common now, I figure this feature doesn't need to be rushed.

Aye, we have made use of the few shoppes the widows control as well, but they be of no use when yer ship is sitting at an island where ye have no shoppe. Or when ye be not at an island at all.
And sailing way outta yer way, just to transfer some cargo is not only time consuming, and wasteful of rum, but really not fun.


It might also make trade easier, suppose the <insert shop here> on <insert island here> needs some <insert commodity here>. Maybe I am passing nearby, but can't/wont stop fer some reason (wouldn't be profitable to stop at the island/ not enough rum etc...), the shop owner can meet me at a league point and we can do the transfer there.

Not to mention the ability to buy rum on the open water from passing ships, ever sail without rum?

I'm sure there are better examples, this just seems like something that should be possible.

I dunno about shopkeepers meeting people at the league point. . . . eventually, I thought the idea is that people can make a good living trading, as traders, and ditto shopkeepers, without necessarily having to do both.

On the other hand, trading with passing ships -- especially rum -- seems like a neat idea.
