Age Of Sail 2  Crackedl
Any challenge that the game presents is greatly diminished by feeble AI. The enemy's tendency is to sail straight toward or away from you, and since the ships of the period mounted few, if any, cannons to the fore and aft, this neutralizes their ability to employ weapons against you. So when the enemies approach aggressively, you can simply place them directly off your side and wither them with constant fire as they drive straight towards you, often without firing a shot in return.

One mission began with my ships in a bay, surrounded by multiple enemies on all sides. Three quarters of the enemies turned in various directions and ran aground all around me as the rest sailed past into open waters. On the note of beginning missions surrounded by enemies, I should point out that a good deal of the scenarios begin with your fleet and the enemy well within one another's cannon range. I found this extremely unrealistic and irritating. At the instant the mission commences, both sides dump all their cannons into each other without any opportunity for tactical maneuvering. The stories I've read while researching sail combat certainly don't lend themselves to the feeling of 'instant action'.
The game also allows for the assignment of waypoints. Unfortunately this met with approximately the same level of success as formations had. In theory, you click a trail of waypoints for your fleet to follow, select the 'hotkeyed' ship group, and finally you are required to click on the tiny flag that serves as a waypoint marker. Even if it actually worked in any capacity, it certainly is unnecessarily difficult to click on one of those miniscule flags without zooming the view extremely close. Again, I attempted to test this in open waters where I had sufficient space to fiddle around without the distraction of enemies about. Two of my ships sailed directly toward the waypoint as requested, while the rest picked a random direction to wander off in. So much for that feature.
The crew management interface allows for assigning your virtual swabbies tasks such as repairing sails, hull, and cannons. Cannon repairs apparently do not function at all. Hull and sail damage can be repaired over time, but once again, this feature has problems. The crew will go about your repair orders for a given period and then mysteriously forget what they were doing and dump themselves back into the available crew pool again without warning or any feedback as to why this occurs. When you have a sizable fleet and many ships need repairs, it is far beyond inconvenience to force the player to constantly re-issue the repair orders.
In the game's favor, it does manage to provide a nice 3D view of the action. The ships themselves are a decent representation, and there is visible battle damage to their sails and planking, although the sail damage doesn't realistically disperse the appearance of rips very evenly. On the whole, the game does present itself attractively. Smoke from cannon barrages drifts in the wind, masts crack and fall into the sea, and the ships blaze nicely.
Marijuana cultivation began in the United States around 1600 with the Jamestownsettlers, who began growing the cannabis sativa or hemp plant for its unusuallystrong fiber that was used to make rope, sails, and clothing. Until after theCivil War, marijuana was a source of major revenue for the United States.During the 19th century marijuana plantations flourished in Mississippi,Georgia, California, South Carolina, Nebraska, New York, and Kentucky. Alsoduring this period, smoking hashish, a stronger preparation of marijuanaderived from the dried resin of the plant, was popular throughout France and toa lesser degree in the US.
The Endurance battled her way through a thousand miles of pack ice over a six week period and was one hundred miles - one days sail - from her destination, when on the 18th of January 1915 at 7634'S, the ice closed in around her. The temperature dropped dramatically cementing together the loose ice that surrounded the ship as the ship's storekeeper wrote, she was "Like an almond in a piece of toffee".
Nevertheless, his men looked towards "the Boss" as they called him. This collection of Royal Naval sailors, rough and ready trawler hands and recent Cambridge University graduates amongst others were now dependent on the man who had led them to this place and this very unfortunate predicament.
The party left behind on Elephant Island used the two remaining life boats to make a hut, they were turned upside down and placed on top of two low stone walls, tent and sail fabric were used as lining to keep the wind and weather out. The men were even able to make small celluloid windows from an old photograph case, a blubber stove provided heat and was used as a cooker. Conditions were cramped and food was in short supply. One of the party, Blackborow, (little more than a boy who had joined the ship as a stow-away in Buenos Aries when his companion had been hired though he had not) suffered from frostbitten toes. These were amputated by the surgeons by the meager light given out by the blubber stove.
SEC. 4. That for the purpose of properly identifying Chinese laborers who were in the United States on the seventeenth day of November eighteen hundred and eighty, or who shall have come into the same before the expiration of ninety days next after the passage of this act, and in order to furnish them with the proper evidence of their right to go from and come to the United States of their free will and accord, as provided by the treaty between the United States and China dated November seventeenth, eighteen hundred and eighty, the collector of customs of the district from which any such Chinese laborer shall depart from the United States shall, in person or by deputy, go on board each vessel having on board any such Chinese laborers and cleared or about to sail from his district for a foreign port, and on such vessel make a list of all such Chinese laborers, which shall be entered in registry-books to be kept for that purpose, in which shall be stated the name, age, occupation, last place of residence, physical marks of peculiarities, and all facts necessary for the identification of each of such Chinese laborers, which books shall be safely kept in the custom-house.; and every such Chinese laborer so departing from the United States shall be entitled to, and shall receive, free of any charge or cost upon application therefor, from the collector or his deputy, at the time such list is taken, a certificate, signed by the collector or his deputy and attested by his seal of office, in such form as the Secretary of the Treasury shall prescribe, which certificate shall contain a statement of the name, age, occupation, last place of residence, persona description, and facts of identification of the Chinese laborer to whom the certificate is issued, corresponding with the said list and registry in all particulars. In case any Chinese laborer after having received such certificate shall leave such vessel before her departure he shall deliver his certificate to the master of the vessel, and if such Chinese laborer shall fail to return to such vessel before her departure from port the certificate shall be delivered by the master to the collector of customs for cancellation. The certificate herein provided for shall entitle the Chinese laborer to whom the same is issued to return to and re-enter the United States upon producing and delivering the same to the collector of customs of the district at which such Chinese laborer shall seek to re-enter; and upon delivery of such certificate by such Chinese laborer to the collector of customs at the time of re-entry in the United States said collector shall cause the same to be filed in the custom-house anti duly canceled.
Aback - the condition of a ship's sails when the wind bears against their front surfaces. They are laid aback, when this is purposely effected to deaden her way by rounding in the weather-braces; and taken aback, when brought to by an unexpected change of wind, or by inattention in the helmsman.--All aback forward, the notice given from the forecastle, when the head-sails are pressed aback by a sudden change in the wind.
After-Sails - all sail which are extended on the mizen-mast, and on the stays between the mizen and main-mast. They are opposed to the head-sails, which include all spread on the fore-mast and bowsprit
America's Cup - The America's Cup race, dating from 1851, is the oldest trophy in sailing and is considered yacht racing's Holy Grail. The race was originally called the Hundred Guineas Cup, presented by the British Royal Yacht Club, and raced around the Isle of Wight. The winning vessel that year was the "America", and the name of the race was changed to "America's Cup". Because of the enormous costs involved, the race is held approximately every three years.
Angle of Attack - the angle between the chord of a sail and the relative wind or between the chord of a hydrofoil such as a keel or rudder and a vector line representing the true path through the water, taking the amount of sideslip or leeway into account. The term applies to a sail only when the relative wind is forward of the beam.
Antitrades - the prevailing westerly winds of the middle latitudes. The winds to the north of the trade winds which blow in the opposite direction. Since the early square rigged ships could not sail to weather, they had to cross to the New World on the trades or tradewinds, and return by a more Northerly route in the antitrades. See illustration at Prevailing Winds of the World
Apparent Time - the time of day indicated by the hour angle of the sun; i.e. apparent noon locally would be the moment when the sun is at its zenith. A properly mounted sundial indicates apparent time. The concept is employed when making navigation calculations. A sun sight at noon and a simple calculation can produce a very accurate line of longitudeApparent Wind - the direction and velocity of the wind relative to the speed and direction of the boat which is derived from the True Wind and Wind of Motion. This is the wind you feel on your face when on a moving sailboat.
