The first time if the pirats apear it close to wrecking your start. Because they destroy your ship and not just steal your cargo. Would it be possible that an attack of a pirat just damaging your ship and steal your cargo? It is hard anough for the player to lose the cargo. But in close to all cases. They sink your ship. Maybe capture your cargo and your King rise the tax and hand over you a new low ship. Mostly a caravel which will sink if a pirat attack them again. Can you please modify the survival chance of the trading ships?
