a mod for Pirates of the Caribbean
"Pirates of the Caribbean: New Horizons", also known as PiratesAhoy! Community Build 14, has been in development ever since the release of Build 13 in early 2007. We have come a long way since then, adding much new content and many new features, some of which were thought to be impossible to achieve even by the original game developers themselves.
The intention is to provide as full an historical Age of Sail game experience as possible, both more realistic, but also more fun. New features include more storylines, historical detail, abilities for free play, variety and more customization than ever before. Not to mention that the graphics have also been improved upon, mainly with new models and textures, but also the sea itself and anywhere else that we could manage.
Although the game is called "Pirates of the Caribbean" and a lot of movie-specific content has been added, that is not all that's been done. Better still, there is a lot to enjoy even for those people who don't much care for the movies and it is entirely possible to play the game as a fully realistic period naval simulation, rather than a movie tie-in.
It goes without saying that 2013 has been a huge year for PiratesAhoy!, and our flagship mod project, PotC: New Horizons, is a testament to our community's incredible level of dedication and enthusiasm. The culmination of ten years' worth of work has resulted in one of the biggest and most impressive mods to ever grace such a relatively unknown game.
The popularity of New Horizons has been rising steadily with each subsequent release, and with the brand new Build 14 Beta 3.1* having just officially rolled out, the mod has soared even higher into the top 100 mods on ModDB.
So, with this in mind, we ask this simple question:
Can New Horizons finally rank in the top 100 for ModDB's coveted Mod of the Year awards?
In previous years, New Horizons hasn't accumulated enough votes to claim this accolade, but we feel that this year truly is the mod's time to shine.
As a reminder of all the great content the mod has to offer, here's another look at the excellent Beta 3 Release Trailer, produced by Diperscitus:

The top 100 mods of 2013 will be revealed on December 11, so you'll need to make your vote quickly for it to count. After that, voting for the best of these 100 will commence. If New Horizons reaches that stage, we'll let you know!
In the meantime, those of you with Age of Pirates 2 should check out Modernknight1's highly anticipated GoF: Eras module 2. He would also love to see your screenshots posted here.
There's also a full release of GoF 2.0 (not to be confused with Eras module 2) now available here.
