Waterfalls
Ok, what will they do, are they just eyecandy or will they have a task in AOM? Will there be mysterious caves behind them or just stone?
etc., etc.,etc.

I wouldn't make too many assumptions. Who knows, maybe ships could crash on waterfalls...

Or off them.

I hope they're are not only scenario editor eye candy but also in normal games.

But in one of the holiday SSs there was a sound of a waterfall.

No question, it sounds cool - but will it make these noise always?

I think this might be disturbing 'cause it's really loud.

But if it only would make the sound sometimes like for example the sea of AoK I think this would also be a bit stupid.

What do u think?

i'am sure ships cannot pass waterfalls. Maybe they are just ship blockings?

I'm sure it'll be quieter in game, it was loud so you could hear it well now.

But big waterfalls are loud...

But a big waterfull which isn't so loud is better than one which is so loud or hasn't noise all the time, that's right.

They are probably something to add more strategy to the game. Sort of like an unbreakable wall for ships. Also, waterfalls are located on cliffs. You could build your town on the top side of cliffs, build some towers on the edge of the cliff, and then you have an almost unbeatable entrance to your town.

Wouldn't it be interesting if you could send boats down a waterfall at a certain risk? Imagine if a few of your boats were cornered and had a chance to escape down a waterfall. The enemy would have to decide whether or not to follow you.

if you have got black map at the start of game and send the ship to end of map and during this way it found wf it crash.

But next ship, which go this way won`t crashed, becouse the last ship found this dangerous place.

This is my idea.

I think ye're going a little OTT here guys. I suppose ye want ships affected by tides aswell right?

Waterfalls will be impassable, I'm pretty sure... the one's we've seen are way to steep for a ship to survive going over, but perhaps less steep waterfalls (really, just rivers going downhill, I suppose) could be passable. I wonder if ships will get an elevation bonus from it, ie, if a ship at the top of the waterfall shoots down at the enemy ship at the bottom, would it get a bonus like archers shooting down from elevation? I think it should.
