I know literally nothing about modding this game, so I figured I would ask. Is there a way to mod the starting era? Not their difficulties, per se, but what year is displayed at any given time in the game. For example, if I wanted "1680" to become "1725" would that be possible?

Hello Captain! It’s the idiot speaking. In order to do that you would probably need to unpack the games fpk packs and find the text.ini. Open that sucker with a sharp knife, oops I mean with notepad then take a stroll all the way down to the bottom and find (ERAS). There you will saw all de different eras and they start date. Change the value of 1680 to 1725 should do it and if you want you can redo the text ore leave tit alone. Example the 1680 error is Pirates Sunset . You can change 1680 into 1725 and call it Barnaids gone topless or whatever ye had in mind. Need any help let me know.

The text.ini file is in the pak1fpk file
Here it is, in case you don't want to mess with unpacking it.
Make the changes, then put the modified file in the 'custom' folder.


Code:
; INI file for Pirates! Text System.
; Each group is a KEY to be used in strings for variable replacement.
; Each group must have a Type. The Type can be one of: __NUM, __STR,
; __INITIAL, __VAR, __GEN, __PER, __MALE, __FEMALE, __NEUTER, __MP,
; __FP, __NP, __SING, __PLUR.
;
; The __NUM type is used for numeric values. It will have 2 permutations:
; 1 and any other number.
;
; The __STR type should only be used for debugging purposes as translators
; have no way of knowing the value that will be substituted. It will have
; only 1 permutation (the variable, as is).
;
; The __CHAR type is similar to the __STR type but it is a single
; character. It will only have 1 permutation (the character, as is).
;
; The __VAR type is a lookup value. There must be at least one Value for
; these types. There will be 1 permutation for each listed Value. These
; types can also be linked so that multiple __VAR types will generate
; permutations to together. Links should be used whenever two __VAR types
; have the same number of values and will always be used with each other.
;
; The __GEN type is a string containing gender and plurality information.
; The string to be parsed must contain an FTextGenVarData object which
; contains the string, gender, and plurality, as the replacement value.
; These types will have 6 permutations (masculine, feminine, and neuter,
; both singular and plural).
;
; The __PER type is a subclass of the __GEN type used for a person's name.
; The string to be parsed must contain an FTextGenVarData object which
; contains the string and gender, as the replacement value. These types
; will have 2 permutations (masculine and feminine, both singular).
;
; The __MALE type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be masculine singular. The string to be parsed must contain
; an FTextGenVarData object which contains the string, gender, and plurality,
; as the replacement value. There will only be 1 perumtation for this type.
;
; The __FEMALE type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be feminine singular. The string to be parsed must contain
; an FTextGenVarData object which contains the string, gender, and plurality,
; as the replacement value. There will only be 1 perumtation for this type.
;
; The __NEUTER type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be neuter singular. The string to be parsed must contain
; an FTextGenVarData object which contains the string, gender, and plurality,
; as the replacement value. There will only be 1 perumtation for this type.
;
; The __MP type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be masculine plural. The string to be parsed must contain
; an FTextGenVarData object which contains the string, gender, and plurality,
; as the replacement value. There will only be 1 perumtation for this type.
;
; The __FP type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be feminine plural. The string to be parsed must contain
; an FTextGenVarData object which contains the string, gender, and plurality,
; as the replacement value. There will only be 1 perumtation for this type.
;
; The __NP type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be neuter plural. The string to be parsed must contain
; an FTextGenVarData object which contains the string, gender, and plurality,
; as the replacement value. There will only be 1 perumtation for this type.
;
; The __SING type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be singular, but may be masculine, feminine, or neuter.
; The string to be parsed must contain an FTextGenVarData object which contains
; the string and gender as the replacement value. There will be 3 permutations
; for this type (masculine, feminine, and neuter).
;
; The __PLUR type is a subclass of the __GEN type. It is used for strings
; that will always be plural, but may be masculine, feminine, or neuter.
; The string to be parsed must contain an FTextGenVarData object which contains
; the string and gender as the replacement value. There will be 3 permutations

Hello Captain! It’s the idiot speaking. In order to do that you would probably need to unpack the games fpk packs and find the text.ini. Open that sucker with a sharp knife, oops I mean with notepad then take a stroll all the way down to the bottom and find (ERAS). There you will saw all de different eras and they start date. Change the value of 1680 to 1725 should do it and if you want you can redo the text ore leave tit alone. Example the 1680 error is Pirates Sunset . You can change 1680 into 1725 and call it Barnaids gone topless or whatever ye had in mind. Need any help let me know.

Pirate's Sunset is still a good name, as after Bart Roberts' death piracy in the Caribbean declined sharply and quickly.

Thanks Fleet, do I need to save it in any particular format?

Save in text format. Make sure the file is saved with the filename 'text.ini'
Some text editor programs will try to tack on a txt extension.

I did end up trying this, but I must not have modded the right file or done it right. I copy/pasted what was provided here into a text document and renamed it "text.ini". I then dumped that into the "Customs" folder. However, none of the changes I made are showing in-game. The eras and starting years are still the default. What did I do wrong?

I think you discovered a little secret of mine. Dropping mods in the customs folder is for the most part OK except if memory serves me correct the text.ini wont work there. Drop it in the Assets folder and see if it works.
