How do you handle the Weapon Focus Proficiency?

This came up during a different discussion, but I was curious how you all handle the Weapon Focus Prof in your game?
I did not realize this until I was several sessions into my campaign an important concept in ACK.

ACK as a whole assumes that roll a natural 20 is not a critical success in combat!

This is reflected in the proficiency and much to my chagrin the damage mechanic and mortal wounds.

I have been having my monsters doing double damage on critical hits, Ooops!

The Weapon Focus proficiency has two effects
Primary: Allows PC to do critical damage with a chosen weapon when they roll a natural 20
Secondary: Used in conjunction with other proficiency to train troops.

My group has always counted a natural 20 has a critical hit and counted for double damage or Max Damage.

If I told them they had to use a proficiency slot and then could only get critical hits with a chosen weapon they would have mutinied and keelhauled me.

So I changed it so that it gives them a Critical Hit on a 19 or 20 with their chose weapon

How do you all treat it?

One thing the Wilderness Exploration rules don't take into account regarding the Party Getting Lost is Familiars.

One of my players has a raven.

How much of a factor could it be in keeping the party on course?

Has anyone every created a supplement for NON-STEAMPUNK airships for S&W?

I am spit balling ideas for an aerial fantasy adventure.

Arcane Powered Flying Ships , Sky Pirates, Dragons, Floating Islands, Thunder Whales, Sky Rays, Cloud Sharks the whole bit.

The concept is very high fantasy.
