Everyone loves the beginner

Site news icon
Remember what it was to first start playing Pirates!? Remember the confusion? The fear? Many of us have become experts since those days, but there are others out there, who are only starting out their careers in the Spanish Main. Rather than knock these beginners on the head and take their gold, the famous pirate Airsaw figured out a better plan: Why not help those beginners along, give them the means to gather up some loot and only then go and whack them over the head to take their gold?

Now, I direct all beginners, and humble experts willing to learn more, to take everything that they can from Airsaw's Beginners' FAQ.

Sid Talk's XBOX Pirates!

Pirates! news icon
Sid wrote a miniature diary for the still upcoming Pirates! for XBOX over at EuroGamer

We've had a Firaxis Xbox development team working on the game for nearly two years and it's coming along just fine. Right now we're working on adding multiplayer ship battles for up to four players on a single machine. We'll also offer scoreboards, rankings and cool customizable content through Xbox Live. We have every confidence that "Sid Meier's Pirates!" will kick some serious Xbox booty. We hope you'll agree.

Server move complete!

Site news icon
Hi all, welcome back...

I hope you didn't have to wait very long for the new domain to become active. The plans for the move suddenly changed and we ended up doing it a little less elegant than I had originally concocted.

So, not only you find yourself on a new server (you wouldn't have noticed really) but also on a new domain name. So what happened to cutlassisle.com? Why a new name? What was wrong with the old one? Does this have anything to do with the recruitment of the new mods and the talk of 'soon to be announced plans'?

A solid yes can be the only answer to those questions.

I'll tell you all about it if you click on "more" below...

Mod database online

Site news icon
Cutlass Isle proudly presents the largest Pirates! mod database on the net. :)

When we do something, we want to do it properly. After many months of looking around for the proper tool to administer the rapidly growing number of mods for Pirates! out there, we've finally found what we were looking for.

We've added a vast number of sails, flags, skins and other things but we've also enabled you to upload your own files to the database. Remember though that your uploads won't show up until they've been approved.

Go ahead, check it out here!
