Naval Warfare

Light Ships switched places with Transport Ships to better reflect the historical situation. Transport ships were usually warships with fewer guns, while trading ships were much faster, but much, much more lightly armed. Vanilla Light Ships are Transport Ships now. Vanilla Transport Ships are Light Ships now.


Version 1.2

In the upcoming version 1.2 of VeF a major change to ships will be introduced. Instead of everyone having the same ships they will depend on what tech group you belong it. This allows using native ship types or in certain cases have the same ship type with different stats, i.e. to help small very trade focused nations their ships might have slightly more trade power. The information below is based on current 1.2 development branch status.
