here we are with a new update!
First of all, we know many of you are waiting for some improvements in the game's AI and task management system. After tons of hours dedicated to it, Mikko has been working really hard on trying to get some stuff fixed. We're a bit sad we cannot come up with any improvement in this aspect on this update, the system is one of the most complex in the game. Has a lot of dependencies and is really hard to get it sorted out without a previous intense testing process in order to not cause major trouble. Mikko said he'll keep trying and will do his best, but emphasized that some help from you all will be really helpful.
Here's what you can do to help us improve game's AI:
And now the update, as we couldn't progress on AI soon, Mikko went on with the following great fixes. Payed especial attention to the most voted Mantis issues list (and that's the reason you're getting now a pirate flag editor in the game!):
after so much work from Mikko and testers team, we can provide you with our so much promised new savegame format update. The game will now take your old saves (hosted under your installation folder) and convert most part of them to the new format, that is: player, crew and ship config and stats, all your progress will be there in your new game. The islands you already visited won't be in the game, and the ones you still haven't visited will be regenerated.
From now on, and thanks to the new savegame system, we'll be able to add much more content to the game (like we already did with castaway and hobo island in this update). As you can see, in this patch we also improved and enriched the bounty and treasure loot system. Take a look at the detailed changelog for more info:
General Bug Fixes
“Wow, a 10/10, but why?! Why? because this game managed to captured my heart immediately, with its excellent sound effects, cute, even if unpolished, pixel art and the ability to not only lead a pirate life, but do it with your own customized ship and crew. the promised features will make it from a 8/10 right now to the 10/10 it could be. should be. will be. this one is bound to be a classic, and not reviewing it as such would only make me look fool in hindsight.”

“Pixel Piracy is a loveable game with its own barrel of charm the mood seems perfect and I can just forget all my other needs. I can't help but hear the sounds the pirates make every now and again even when I'm not playing. Very interested to see where this games goes down the line. The loss of my pirates may seem a bit unforgiving at the moment but I'l only try harder next time ! If you like a bit of randomness and the ability to design your own ship, assemble your crew whilst managing their needs then you might as well try this out.”

“I don't give games a 10/10 that often, if not ever. But this game has so much going on for it, and it is under the radar right now. So, do yourself a favor, download the demo, have an awesome time, and then buy this game, cause it really is a gem. If you like pirates, and high sea adventure in highly randomized generated worlds, this is the game for you! It is very unforgiving, so you have to be very sure about your intentions when you play. One false planning and you have to start over from scratch (although there outside methods to save your game if you want to "cheat" save so do not worry). But the gameplay is fun, the art style, and sound effects are smarmy and swaggy. If you don't like this game, just walk the plank, because you don't enjoy fun things evidently :)”
