Happy New Year

I am pleased to announce that the long awaited new version (1.6.0) of the GOF ERAS2 mod is almost ready for release. It should be out this coming weekend.

The following are the new additions to the mod:

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT: Mast crashing has been fixed once and for all by our brilliant coder Jeffrey.

We are testing new dismasting numbers to find a new balance. For now they will stay the same, but losing masts will no longer crash your game in small or large battles by your ships or enemy ships. This is huge and something we have been trying to fix for seven years. THREE CHEERS TO JEFFREY!

SPOILER ALERT:

- 9 New Swords (bringing us to a total of 141 hand held weapons)

- 17 New pistols (bringing us up to 63 different firearms combinations)

- 5 New Items (bringing us up to 581 items in the game)

- 6 New Ships (bringing us up to 204 ships) NOTE: Jeffrey has written new code allowing additional texture skins to be encountered over the three already in place for each model. Many ships now have additional skins that can be encountered. This brings up encounters to potentially around 700 uniquely skinned ships that can be encountered in the game.

To see some of the new ships go to my flickr page: Flickr.com

- 11 New Characters:

Emmanuel Wynne

Alexander Exquemalin

Thomas Tew

Stede Bonnet

Nikolaus Boes

William Credo

Isaac Rochussen

Amaro Pargo

Nathaniel North

John Bowen

Prudence "Spitfire" Stevens

ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

- One New Location!

- Six Fighters available in party

- Promotion mod fixed with promotions happening more often and more titles available with historically correct title names for each nation. Titles can now also be obtained by purchasing them from Governors.

- Flags can now be purchased and the flag perk can be obtained with a 75 percent chance when successfully taking a ship of X nationality.

NEW FLAG MOD: Allows 49 different flags to be encountered. 5 war flags per nation and 5 merchant flags per nation that are historically correct and will be seen in convoys WAR or TRADE. This new mod also eliminates texture stretching so that high resolution non distorted flags are now seen.

NEW PENNANT MOD: Allows ships to be encountered with nationally correct historical pennants along with flags.

Marooning Mod: If your ship is sunk you have a chance of washing up onto a beach somewhere randomly as do your officers. Others may also escape the sinking and be encounter-able again in different locations.

Many new deck locations and cabin locations imported, built by the talented modeler Orazio and some retextured by MK.

Much more work that is continuing that will not be included in this version to be announced in future versions to include a new world map with many new island and colony locations.

Stay tuned for release and links where it can be obtained.

Hello MK, I wanted to say thank you for the amazing mod. This is the best mod for the game by far. I am so glad that you do not have any of that ridiculous Pirates of the Caribbean movie stuff in it because for me it totally breaks immersion.

I was curious if you could upload the mod to a different site other then Mega. I absolutely hate it. I have not been able to get another copy of the mod because of their insane waiting period(the 6+ hrs wait time between every ~5gigs and it periodically resets).

Thanks again for the amazing mod. You have done a fantastic job implementing new content, keeping it balanced, and it runs great!

Jeffrey broke the mod up into a bunch of pieces already. This next version is almost ready to go and we will do the same thing. I will try to see if we can upload in several places. MODDB and Gamefront have not been very good about such a huge mod when uploading. Perhaps the NEXUS people would like me to upload it there. See what I can do. Thanks for the kind comments.

Will GOF ERAs Mod 2 work with the Gog version of Sea Dogs: City of Abandoned Ships ?

YES Normally you would overwrite any version you have with our code or you may not get all of our features. However, after installing the GOG version, simply try the ERAs version on your desktop alone first without installing it on top of the GOG version. It will probably work on its own. MK

MK, Eras is the most incredible mod I've ever played! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and attention to detail. The ships, characters and all of the weapons and loot items are amazing. They just don't end. I can't believe it took me so long to find this. Please continue your work. Please please please! I would help you if I knew how but unfortunately I am computer illiterate except in knowing how to play games.

Next version will have an option to download in bits. So it will be four smaller downloads that you have to put together. I tried torrent last time and couldn't get it to work right.

A new MEGA-patch will be done next week and I will post a new upload with all previous patch material already in place updating the primary game download so it doesn't have to be patched.
