Towing boats

Recommended Posts

Tired of needing 2 or more alts in order to move your ships around?


 


Introducing rope! Something we already have. We can pull horses with it. We can make boats with it. We can even sacrifice cordage ropes to earn favour for our magical priests!


 


Yet, we can't attach a rope to 2 boats to make one pull the other. Personally, I actually think it's bizarre that we can't.


 


What do you guys think? Should perhaps a "tug rope" be implemented?

We used to be able to tow boats without a rope activated, it was disabled "because PvP". I've always missed being able to tow boats and "because PvP" isn't really a satisfactory reason for disabling it on a PvE server.

Yeah. If it's a pvp issue, then why not just enable it for pve? lol

I agree but I have the feeling it was because even though it was due to pvp they saw it as exploitable on pve too.

Make the boat be empty and have no passengers to be able to tow it...

Exactly. Just unmoor the boat to be towed and make it so the person who can tow the boat is the person who owns the boat. Could it be exploited at that point?

+1 yes ! and while we are about it, could we not have 1 mooring rope back to lead 4 animals ???


 


Especially as when I put up a high rope fence - unless I remember to drop them all - the high ql ropes in my backpack get used on the fences!

+1 If it was possible at one time, please make it so again on PvE!

Bump for this suggestion... this NEEDS to be implemented.  I don't know how many times I've died while sailing and needed to sail back to the site of the death (and boat) and then didn't have an available alt to bring with me to sail the original ship back.  In fact it just happened last night.  What a pain. 


 


My suggestions on this as others have said:


 


1. Make the "towed" vessel not able to accommodate players while being towed.


2. Either use a mooring rope or some other new rope.


 


I can't think of any negatives.
