i`m eager to play it.
It is great work and fun.
I guess though that it is meant only to play as a pirate civ.
I tried as the British once and the only thing I really got to
do was run out of $$ But the time it took to stabilize things
it was too late to be able to compete against those damned pirates.
They had run amok, especially against the Spaniards.
I did sink alot of ships though but never enough.
I have not played it in awhile but I liked it alot.
It remains in my own top ten list.
I always tried to think of some way to modify it
w/o making it too easy too play as the British.
I like it too! Are you planning on a future update?
Well, the new links are here!
No, I think I've ended my civ3 modding days. Although it's a bit easier than modding civ4, large projects are easier as everything can be edited in 3 different editors (notepad, xml editor & xml spy).
But as it's fairly easy, nothing will stop you from editing it And if you're pleased with it, upload it somewhere & I'll link to it.
Yaaahh! New stuff.
Ahoy, Matey! I just took a break from Civ4 to get at my true love, C3C, and tried this scenario. Yahrrrr!!! It's really great. It move quickly and there's a whole bunch of action. Great work--so MUCH better that the Civ 4 Pirates scenario that I have played both as pirates and Spanish.

I might do a remake someday
For my real historical scenarios (wwii, napoleonic) I like to make it fairly realistic, but something like this is not supposed to be that way, now is it?
So where I can i possibly pick up the elusive Pirates! Yarrr! music files???
I had to remove it because the place I was hosting actually started to see if the 50mb quota was being overused (I had atelast 300mb there). I do still have the files myself, so I can re-upload them somewhere, they're about 50mb IIRC.
38mb. Extract into your civ3\conquests\ folder. I don't know if it works though, if it doesn't just open those mp3's with winamp
rock... thanks alot Paasky! Downloading now, at a nice 400+ kB/s. I'll know what to do with the files.
i keep getting the error message something like cannot find grandbatterysm the game will close now, how do i fix that, because every time i look at the technology tree the game just exits.
Can't really help, I haven't had civ3 installed for over a year now. Give me a screeny of the error & I'll see if I can remember how it works
But before that, make sure you've installed everything correctly.
i redownloaded everything, and i still get the error message
im running into problems trying to upload the screenshot, i printscreened and pasted to microsoft paint. how do i get it so the file is jpeg or something like that instead of Bitmap? or would i have to use a special program to do that?
Make sure you've got the correct file path. It should go something like Civiliation III\Conquests\Scenarios\Pirates! Make sure you don't put it in the Conquests\Conquests folder.
If that's right than just post saying so. I'm pretty sure I got the same error you got along with several others when looking at the unit section of the civpedia. It's a problem with the Civpedia.txt I corrected it and now the game runs fine. If you like I can upload it. You can play the game without it, you just have to be careful where you go and thus it isn't as fun.
i checked the file path and its fine.
Could you upload the correction please?
Correction: I meant the problem was in the PediaIcons.txt.
The file is at the bottom of the post.
Just download it, and stick it into your Pirates!\Text folder. It'll ask you if you want to replace PediaIcons.txt. Just tell it yes and you should be set. Let me know if you still have problems.
Thanks for helping out
Hey, no prob. I hate to see somebody missing out on this great scenario.
