I've actually been playing that lately.  ;D

It's basically Mount & Blade remade into a pirate game. It's decent - not really flushed out mainly because the original devs were taking too long and the financiers fired them and hired some new people to finish it quickly. I actually bought it when it was under a different name. Caribbean! or something? Think maybe they changed the name and 'released' it then.

For that price definitely worth picking up!

Ok, I downloaded it while UWO was updating today. Made a character and checked out a couple towns. Then I saw a smuggler going by so I engaged him and took his ship.

The ship was slightly better than mine but badly damaged so I took it back to port to repair and transfer my crew over ...except I can't figure out how to transfer them over while in port. Is there a way to do that?

Sweet!  :)

I think you want to transfer as many as possible out to sea, and then to fill out the crew go to the shipwright page and select crew. You have to 'buy' the crew there. If you have a larger ship with more crew you may need to go to a couple of ports to fill up the crew. Can also train them up the first level once your crew is full and if you have enough money to do that, too.

Stay safe with those really low temps up north!

Got to -32 here today -53 wind chill ...stayed home, no tree trimming for me today ;)

I looked around and found that this is offered on steam as well. I looked it up there and found a game manual in pdf.
https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steam/apps/413710/manuals/Blood___Gold_-_Caribbean!_manual.pdf?t=1524928122

You mange your troops from the "party" panel by pressing 'p' while at sea. I got my crew transferred over and sold off my original ship. Now I gotta figure out how to transfer cannons and ammo ..lol

I'm gonna split this off and start a New thread.

Wow! Makes me appreciate living in the south now! lol

Yeah, I play it through Steam myself. I tend to just use the buttons on the screen, so forgot that 'P' is for party screen.

Like I said, not completely finished and polished, but this is a pretty darn good pirate game to play. Some hints of Pirates! Gold, Sea Dogs, and others in the way it's made. Too bad people haven't made a bunch of mods for it like M&B, because it could really be up there for one of the best pirate games with a little more work.

I've been thinking about this one back and forth. I may try it, but for now... Morrowind!

Definitely get it on sale when you do. It should be on sale for any major Steam sale, as well as other random times like the GOG sale.
