Ownerless phantom ship Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I'm just curious, so I'm posting this, but I did a /vwho for alone tuna, and two ships showed up:

/vwho alone tuna wrote: 

Alone Tuna
In port at Winter Solstice
-------
Alone Tuna
Jolie Rouge
The Midnight Sun

Last seen leaving Cnossos Island.

Pirates aboard:
etc, you get the point


What is odd is, the first ship has no crew/flag attributed to it, which all ships do whether they have mates on it or not. My curiousity piqued, I rushed over to Winter Solstice to try and get a gander at this freespirited ship. Gasp, the ship isn't in the docks. Its. . .a phantom ship! =P Or something else, but, I was much perplexed by it. Any thoughts?

Do a /vwho on the Grateful Gurnard, that ship belongs to one of my alts that only makes a crew when I feel like sailing. So that other ship might belong to someone that just left a crew or hasn't made one yet.

Is it rainning?

Oh

. . .

Heh, okie, tha' explains it, thank you mate.

It lacks all the intrigue and mystique though, sad be I =P I was personally wondering if it was something more exotic, like a deleted deed holding alt, or something. Can't believe I didn't think of crewless mate b'fore posting. Perhaps its the ship belongs to crew reasoning that I couldn't get my head around =P The ship isn't in a crew? HOW? =P

Well, i'was a fun mystery whilst i'lasted =)

Ships also don't appear as being in port unless someone has been on board it recently, or if someone is currently on board. Ever wonder why there aren't hundreds of ships showing up as being docked on Alpha?

Exact time is 30 minutes I believe.
