This might be old news, but...

I think the change so that you can only carry one boat is quite meaningles
I fail to see what makes this so important, I mean, it is hopefully
up to people themselves if they will carry an entire fleet around.
But it does matter when someone is somewhere without a boat. Noone can
bring him or her a boat...

yeah, i fail to see the point. Maybe i am wrong
but i don't recall seeing a group boat in
ancient, for example. It is kinda
hard to bring anyone
a boat, somebody that is about to drown
(i would have drwoned sveral times too, but luckily i can
go ooc and spam-fluy)....

The goal is to eventually make boats seem like boats, and not like
"walk on water" devices. :) e know everyone is used to walk-on-water
devices, but we think having real boats in the game is cooler, and has
more possibilities for future expansion, like say, boarding,
ship-to-ship combat, etc. None of which works if you have a galleon on
each foot. :)

Agreed on that, Ptah, but one could be able to have a spare canoe,
and even if it is not realistic, it is a good help for newbies and others
who for some reason lost their boat...

maybe add an item (or feature) that can "drag" no-boaters around
without having to have a boat? Like those things used on waterskiing
or just simply a life-jacket type that one or two ppl could hold on
to if they were grouped. Makes it easier to rescue newbies or other
unfortunate souls whose boats deserted them, yet is still semi-

Hehe, i guess I should go code this, instead of writing it, but what about
making it so even little boats can act like group boats, with perhaps a
maximum occupancy of 2 or 3, or for really tiny boats, 1. (ala normal boat
Just a thought

I was gonna suggest the same Tad. Nice idea.
It seems kinda odd to go for realism in this sense, in a place
where you can paddle your way across the atlantic in seconds, in
nothing more than a canoe.
