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.

New Horizons on Maelstrom has come quite far recently thanks to the efforts of ChezJfrey, Mirsaneli, and Mitrokosta. And these awesome skyboxes are the work of Modernknight1.
This means that the latest version of PotC: NH is close to fully playable there, and things that don't yet work are being fixed.

To showcase this, these two videos have been uploaded to our YouTube channel; courtesy of Mirsaneli. (As are the screenshots here.)


If you want to get the engine it is available from here: Gentlemen of Fortune: Maelstrom by ChezJfrey And the mod from here: New Horizons by ChezJfrey

A few of the benefits of this are that you won't need any extra workarounds if you have an Intel iGPU, and that you won't have to limit the FPS to 60 in Windows 10. Also it will look and run better than Storm 2.0. There are other improvements, but for the sake of simplicity I won't list them all here.

May ye have a jolly time, the sea awaits you.

I Welcome You! I've been following your project for a very long time. And play your mod. And I was very sad that it didn't work out with the hearts of Oak project. What news from Remastered???

Hello I am trying to run the new horizons mod (build 14). The game loads fine but when I start a new game it crashes. I only have the base game and the build 14 mod installed. Bellow is a copy of my system file -

I meet all the system requirements and am using a 1660 ti (laptop) with windows 10. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Thank you for your help
I now use "RivaTuner Statistic Server" and set my FPS limet to 80. Now it works perfectly and I no longer have a frozen picture ^^
