This mod by the PiratesAhoy! Community is still in active development on our forums.

We have come a long way since 2003, adding much new content and many new features.

Some of those which were considered impossible to achieve!



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 customisation 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.

It is entirely possible to play the game as a fully realistic period naval simulation, rather than a movie tie-in.

An article about New Horizons, written by Robert Zak, can now be read on PC Gamer.
It includes his adventure within the game, as well as the views of a few of the mod's developers.

This 17-year mod project makes the Pirates of the Caribbean tie-in game one of the best pirate sims around | PC Gamer

I must thank Robert Zak for the opportunity he gave us, it was a pleasure to help a bit in this article.
PotC may not be a well known game, but there is still is interest in it and New Horizons.
Something that warms my heart as someone who grew up with the game.

I wish Robert Zak luck with his future articles, and thanks once more for covering this mod!

Playable on Win 10. Use this d3d8 to 9 wrapper for intel and ati/nvidia switchable gpu notebooks. Whatever you do if you cant switch to nvidia/ati until closing of intel gpu in bios just put this wrapper in folder where engine.exe is.
Same with rome 1 totalwar. Whatever fck you did cant switch to ati/nvidia gpu use this wrapper.
You dont need swicthing off anything in bios.

how can i play the game on windows 10?

I played it in my childhood and recently noticed that there is this mod and would love to play it again now, but under win10 it always crashes or hangs as soon as I go into the inventory:(

edith: I know that this is an independent game, but I can always crash the game itself

Yes.
Until someone new shows up who wants to continue again.
Some other storylines have been more recently worked on though; for example, the "Ardent" one.

Hi there, I installed the mod with the latest patch, but the game crashes as soon as I start a story line. Any ideas on how to fix this? Great job on creating the mod
