Thanks for the feedback and bug reports. - The ship description in the plunder view is bugged; should be fixed in the next version. - The "Regular" game mode also has an error; the "true pirate" setting is not maintained when you load the game later. Also fixed in next version, I hope. The rumor thing sounds weird; I'll look into it. @DJ: Currently, I don't have plans to add multiple ships, though it's something I plan to evaluate later (once the current backlog of tasks: additional missions, port attacks, blockades, etc are done). If I do add multiple ships, I would probably consider doing it along the lines of what you suggest. @JJeff: I agree - the frigate (and not least the new Large Frigate) are what I consider to be the best ships in the game. I'm always surprised to read people having success using the treasure galleon for piracy (though as a trader it is unmatched - huge capacity and powerful enough to blow most pirates out of the water).
