My son-in-law told me there was a difference between the Steam version of Pirates and the CD version, specifically that 'more things can happen' when you are on a long voyage (long trip between posts). He didn't elaborate.
Does anybody have any comments on this?
I doubt many people have played both versions since owning both of them wouldn't make tons of sense. There certainly some differences in the executable but I have very serious doubts that any of those are changes would make the game any different to play. I certainly wouldn't think Firaxis would have made any changes to the game for Steamers and if Steam was allowed to make changes of that kind then they are missing a huge opportunity by not advertising their game being different from the CD version. Adammills challenge pack is supposed to work on either version and basically all it does is spit out a new executable that will work in any Windows SMP game. Doesn't sound like there could be much differences to me. Of course I have been wrong before so who knows but the fact he didn't elaborate on those changes doesn't help convince me that there could be a difference in the game. That's just my two cents worth but who knows somebody else might come on board and tell us if you by this or that version all the barmaids disappear into a smoky haze after you talk to them and poof reappear on your lap. That would be the version to buy.
