New Horizons Skills

New Horizons Skills
  • W.I.P. This page is under construction - more information on the various skills and their effects may be added later

    This information is for Build 14 Beta 4 It may differ from other versions of the game


    Effects of Skills: on Sailing various Ships(top)

    In Arcade Game Mode, you can command any Tier of ship without penalty to your Sailing and Leadership skills.

    In Realistic Mode ( the default mode)

    The game checks the minimum between your Sailing and Leadership skill.

    So if you have 2 Sailing and 10 Leadership, that 2 is what counts for being able to command a big ship.

    This is the complete list that the game uses:

    • Skill: 1 - Tier: 7
    • Skill: 2 - Tier: 6
    • Skill: 3 - Tier: 5
    • Skill: 4 - Tier: 5
    • Skill: 5 - Tier: 4
    • Skill: 6 - Tier: 3
    • Skill: 7 - Tier: 3
    • Skill: 8 - Tier: 2
    • Skill: 9 - Tier: 1
    • Skill: 10 - Tier: 1

    So for a Tier 5 ship, you should have at least 3 Leadership and 3 Sailing.
