Anyone else think you should be allowed to buy ships in a shipyard if you want to? Yea yea I know the game is called Pirates and pirates never bought anything, but it would really help a lot if you wanted to be a peaceful trader or something like that.

I wish you could "Go to the shipyard."

Welcome to Hooked on Pirates.
I agree that it would be nice to be able to buy a ship..
As far as being a peaceful trader. I'm guessing that the only way to get a different ship would be to attack and capture a pirate ship.

Unfortunately there is no way to get promoted by selling sugar and spice nor being nice. It's a pirates life your living in this game. Not sure where Stede Bonnet bought his ship at but he is the only one I can think of who bought a ship.

Well actually if all your interested in is buying low and selling high without giving a hoot about fighting or daughters or anything like that then about the only thing you can do peacefully is either use the ship your given or use the PHTrainer and get a trade gallon or sotl or anything else you want to use for free. You can getaway being like that in smp but in one of my favorite pirate games Seadogs you can buy ships and be a peaceful trader but the problem is unlike this game. Pirates and hostile nations will attack you and there will be times that your going to have to swing a cutlass no matter you a peaceful man or not. That’s why I like Seadogs.

SMP just isn't designed for peaceful merchants. Port Royale, in spite of the piratey name, was much more geared that way. More effort was put into the economic model, you could set up production and manufacturing businesses, automated trade routes, stuff like that.

Well I do believe you can be a peaceful merchant in the game. Of course you won’t be promoted or achieve anything other then seeing how rich you can get buying low and sellling high. At least nobody even pirates won’t attack you unless you attack them first so being peaceful and living in peace is possible but certainly not the way the game was meant to be played.

Of course your crew might mutiny but that’s about it. You don’t have to worry about being attacked as long as you don’t attack first.
