Ghost of Gunnery Past

From the Release Notes:
  • Add a speed slider to gunnery to set a desired speed; the puzzle will run at either that desired speed or the speed based on your rating, whichever is higher.
  • New player-made holiday trinkets available for purchase in the palace shoppe
  • Prefer still-fighting zombies to those that have already been defeated when applying the zombie defeat and control bonus move in the Cursed Isles.
  • Add more island scenes for the Cursed Isles.
  • Vessels taken over in Atlantis and Cursed Isles now show with a red outline.
  • Reduce the weight given to gunnery and defence of the ship in Cursed Isle payouts, and better spread out the number of chests given to everyone puzzling.
  • Make one-on-one fights against saboteurs unrated.
  • Monkeys in male portraits are no longer double-jointed & able to hide their arms complete behind their backs.
  • Zombie thralls lack the dexterity to wield swords and now go into battle with sticks.
  • When awarding sea monster charts, be more likely to hand out Cursed Isles maps than Atlantis ones.

  • Navy ships now better understand what stations they have available when selecting where to go for a mission.
  • Randomize the order of items in skelly/zombie wagers.

  • Clarify messages for different ways saboteurs can board vessels.
