Hey everyone. I'm new to the forums here and didn't find a thread on this topic. How is one able to bombard towns. If I knew how it would allow me to stop having over 300 man fleets when I go on my raiding parties in the main. Can anyone offer advice?

when you pass by a city, you can bombard it by pressing the space bar. Unfortunately you don't reduce the number of soldiers in the city in any significant way and you also reduce the wealth status of the city.
If you want to reduce the number of soldiers in the city, arrange for some pirates or even better indians to attack the city.
Both of the above will reduce the number of soldiers, pirates though, if successful in their attack, will reduce the wealth of the city too, whereas a successful indian attack increases the citys wealth, thus yielding more plunder for you Twisted Evil

Thank you so much for your aid Kristian. I feel kind of stupid not realising that I just needed to hit the spacebar now. My crew's never gonna let me hear the end of this.

I wish we could bombard the cities like in the old pirates.
Where you go to a battle screen, but instead of a boat, there is a fort, and you can attack it, then climb the walls.

I loved doing that Smile

Yes, it´s sad that these naval invasions were scrapped, though I didn´t do them much. I tended to get shot up badly every time before I could get my ship to the land. Somehow, the wind was always coming from the land...

That's why you position yourself before you sail in, and circle JUST out of firing range, so when your broadside's showin', you can let a volley fly just barely IN range, and turn out again. I love sloops. Twisted Evil

Yeah that is true. But if you move fast enough, even form within their range, i think you wil find that they will always shoot behind you
