Thread: Admiral villeneauve - British admiral!

    Default Admiral villeneauve - British admiral!

    hi chaps, excuse the lack of proof as I am posting from my phone. Anyway, I promoted a captain of a captured French ship called "dunube" and I now have villeneauve working in the med fleet, not far from his old foe nelson! So anyway, it appears you can get historical admirals from captured ships..

    It's just one of the names in the name database for French ships. I once got a admiral named Brasiliano from a captured pirate vessel.

    I build a couple of second rates as GB and one had the name of a French built British prize!

    I find it odd that the ship has it's name changed when you capture an enemy vessel but seemingly the captain stays in charge.

    Ships change names when you capture them?

    Thats a bit unlucky.....I captured a Pirate 5th Rate called 'Sultana' in my Dutch campaign and kept the same name, she is now the flagship of my channel squadron.
