Sailing off course.... Reply to this Post

So we're sailing along, and suddenly we're going in a direction i didn't expect. Check the chart, and it appears..... We're off course! Check out the screen shots:





We didn't rechart or anything during this trip...

Setting sail took us back on track eventually...



I've thought about ths a little more since it happened. We were aproaching Cnossos when we engaged a ship that was behind us. We then waited at Cnossos for it to catch up. When we set sail after the battle we somehow headed out in the wrong direction. One league out from Cnossos we got turned around and upon return continued on the correct track.

I just wonder, if you hit a league point that isn't currently on your charts, if you could still memorize it if it's passed often enough.... hm!

Oh Baldwin, you so crazy!

This is quite an odd scenario, however, and I am dissapointed I wasn't on to experience it for myself.

This happened to a flagmate of mine recently; screen shot here. Glad to see it's a known bug. He was engaged right outside Cnossos, and disengaged from the battle; when he set sail, he was going the wrong direction, and ended up in uncharted waters.

We got out of it by recharting Cnossos to Winter Solstice (the route he had been on). This drew a little zig zag from where we were (middle of nowhere) to Winter Solstice, and away we went.

Nope, worst case it forces you to return to the last correct leauge point.

Personally I dig the off course 'bug'. I'd ask for it to be implemented, but I'm sure is somehow part of adventure islands, as with most everything good:)

I've had weird stuff happen when I stopped at a league point that wasn't an island, cancelled the course, and created a new one.

Did you run out of Rum? If so, and you have no Rum for like 3 or more leagues, it says something about possibly going off course...
