I want to understand which factors should be counted in (and how) when selecting fastest ship for traveling and/or combat.

1. How is the total speed of sailing calculated?

For instance, let's say we have ship A with vertical sails 200 and horisontal 100 and ship B   with vertical sails 150 and horisontal 150. Both are traveling West with North wind. Which will be faster?

How waves and current affect sailing speed?

2. Which factors affect actual sailing speed in the battle?

Does wind, waves, current are taken into account?

Speed that ship had before battle started?

Thanks in advance!

This is base on tw wiki, so not sure is it accurate.

Wind direction(130-160 degree)
(V speed x 62.5%) + (H speed x 82.5%) + water flow*rowing R (each R = 10%)

Side(30-130 degree)
(V speed x 62.5%) + (H speed x 62.5%) + water flow*rowing R (each R = 10%)

Against Wind(30 degree, left or right)
(V speed x 45%) + (H speed x 25%) + water flow*rowing R (each R = 10%)

*not sure what the water flow stand for.



For waves and turn, which i already explain in other post.
These 2 affect pick up speed. Pick up speed refer to 0 speed to max speed. The higher the value for both, the faster it reach to max speed.

All factor affect during battle, especially turn, wave and row.
row inc by % base on skill rank.

As such, merchant boat are alway in disadvantage. Adventure got high value, except that it does not have row speed, however is there some distant between u and pirate (npc or player), adventure boat has higher chances to escape.

U can see alot of people improving their boat on 4 main factor, Horizontal, Vertical, Turn and Waves.

Battle boat that is fully mod, merchant is mostly likely not able to escape unless the distant is huge. Or when the pirate (players) note that u do not have fully improve your boat, and his boat stat is able to catch up with u before u hit max speed, is able to engage u 2nd time.
