Ships are the main method of travel in Arcane Adventure, some made more durable with the ability to deal massive damage, while others are made for traveling quickly across the waters. However, all boats will slow as they take damage.
To aim multiple cannons, sit in the driver seat and shift the cursor to one side of the ship, and a red highlight will appear to indicate which cannons are firing.
To fire a single cannon, player is to station themself next to a cannon. A thin red highlight will appear, indicating the cannon's line of fire.
To aim a mortar from the driver seat, hold shift and point your mouse at your target. A red highlight in a cylinder shape will appear, showing the area where the cannonballs will land. If stationed at a mortar, holding shift is not necessary.As of update v3.0, seats were removed from the ships. Now, players are recommended to station themselves at a cannon/mortar to reduce the risk of falling off.
Also, as of update v3.0 Hotfix, all boats have a new feature that allows them to move without the player having to be at the wheel. When a boat is docked, the 'Dock (*Boat Type*)' will be replaced by 'Toggle Sails'. When this button is activated, the boat's sails will go up, and it will begin moving. It however cannot steer on its own, as either you or someone else has to be at the wheel to spin it and rotate the ship.
Spawning and Health
Boats are spawned in when clicking on the button labeled "dock *ship name*". If the boat happened to not be at full health, the boat will heal as time passes, if the boat wasn't docked.
As the health of a boat decreases, so does it speed. At its lowest speed, it can reach speeds lower than normal swimming speed. If the health bar reaches "0", the boat will sink. Boats despawn at random times, usually taking hours before despawning, if the player had not died during the time span. Boats despawn shortly after the player has resetted, or after death occurred.
If the boat had recently been sunken, and the button gives you the option to dock the boat, a message will come up, saying, "Your boat is still being repaired from it's last fight. Please wait.". You are able to spawn the boat after a short period of time, however, waiting longer before docking your boat will result in the boat having more health then if you had spawned it as soon as possible. Waiting a long enough period of time will result in your boat having full health.
