    I found an awesome mod for Battlefield 1942 this weekend. It's Battlefield: Pirates, and calls itself "the mod with big ships, bug guns, and big hats". It's still in very early production, but it's playable.

    So far there are launches, sloops, gunships, and galleons in the game, and they're fully armed. Small vessels are limited to chasers, but larger ones also have broadsides, and the galleon mounts rear guns and small swivel cannon in a crow's nest.

    It's possible -- and quite effective -- to board and capture enemy ships. Boarding actions in the middle of naval battles are frequent, and for that you're armed with muskets, pistols, and cutlasses, which are also used for land battles.

    This mod, while still being fairly authentic, is trying to be fun, and it succeeds. Battles between two galleons and their escorts are great fun. I was involved in one with about twenty other people that lasted for at least ten minutes, with ships being captured and recaptured.

    There's also something just undeniably cool about the pirate setting. ^_^

        Doubt it -- it's fun, and I enjoy playing it, but it's not gonna take me away from Thievery.

                  Not really. Depends on the time of day. I've seen numbers from three to fifty.

                      I remember playing it the first day of its release. I happened to stumble onto it while browsing Fileplanet. The only map available was scurvy cove, how many maps does it have now?

                        At least six, and the old ones have had some subtantial improvements.

                              You mean that, instead of plane camping, we will have jetpack camping? :roll:
