Hello and welcome Smile

I almost certain it's a steam engine, Newcomen called his steam engines "Atmospheric engines"

It is for the pumping of mines... Great Britain may be of some assistance with this in Game II.

Okay going to bust lose with a bunch of questions

When I write orders do I write just what I want done or do I write the narrative as in the newspaper?

Can I sell Ships laid up in ordinary?

When I send out prospectors to I just give them an area to search?

Can I switch my character without death?

When I write orders do I write just what I want done or do I write the narrative as in the newspaper?

You can do both... In most cases the orders should be simple and concise. You can then put a separate line item in and describe what you see in order to flesh out the newspaper and add flavor. The more detail and items you place in military orders the more likely there will be an issue.


Can I sell Ships laid up in ordinary?

Sure you can... You can also just bust them up and hold their timbers at a shipyard for the construction of new ships. The amount that is there will come off the total amount that you are required to pay to raise ships.


When I send out prospectors to I just give them an area to search?

Yes... You might want to give them parameters if you are looking for a certain thing. That is usually more successful.

Can I switch my character without death?

Best addressed with Richard... My guess is no. I had issues with this in one game and it appeared that if it was going to happen it would greatly impact my honor score.

The only thing I would add is I think if you sell ships that are in ordinary, you would have to make them active to transfer them (and that might have to be done by the seller and not the buyer)...am doing that from memory but fairly sure that is the rule.

selling in the ordinary you need to make them active and that costs money. You would also be selling your crews as well bear that in mind. you can sell them without crews but said ships would need to be towed to their new port to be used or the crews sent to the port of the seller to be used.
