Awesome :O Will dynamic destruction of the ships be implemented, seems very obvious with the voxels

We're not actually using voxels - just regular models with a very blocky artstyle. You can destroy individual modules like sails and weapons on the ships and the sinking of ships is handled dynamically (so it's not a canned animation).

Thanks for the kind words!

like if you get shot in the side of the ship it would be cool if you know like it would actually put a hole in the side of the ship and have everything fully destructible with individual canons being destroyed or the sail getting a hole in it so it is weakened not just totally destroyed. i don't know just some cool ideas to throw out there, keep up the good work :D

You can take out certain modules and otherwise weaken enemy ships, though we can't make the environment fully destructible unfortunately.

Thanks for the interest!
