.: The Sid Meier's Pirates! Challenge Pack | 2014-03-16 03:50AM :.
Since creating my Iron-man Mod for Sid Meier's Pirates! (2004), I've finished another five mods and I'm releasing all six together. I call this The Challenge Pack because all but one of the mods serve to make the game more challenging. The current release of the challenge pack contains the following mods:Comments
Download: ChallengePack.zip (version 1.2.3)
To use it, replace your game executable (Pirates!.exe) with the one generated by the program. (You may want to make a backup first.)
Contact me if you have any trouble!As a bonus, if you don't select any mods, you'll get a clean, unencrypted executable that's suitable for creating mods and applying other people's mods. (The Steam version supports no exe mods. The retail version supports exe data mods but not code mods. This version supports both code and data mods.)

Thanks for the thanks. I hope you enjoy it. :-)

I just finished a Swashbuckler run with all of your mods enabled. It really changes the game for the better. Although I didn't end up needing them, I prioritized getting the jail and maroon items as a safety strat. Great work on this, and thanks for sharing it.

Second I would like to ask if the 25% less aging is moddable into higher values

The Challenge Pack doesn't have built-in support for it, but of course it's possible to create a mod that changes aging in a different way.

Hi Bermax. The challenge pack doesn't have such an option built-in, but of course it's possible to create such a mod.
.: explanation | 2016-01-05 02:03PM :.
Can you explain what should i change or how off this aging in game i would be grateful

.: RE: explanation | 2016-01-07 06:36PM :.
Hi Bermax. Unless you're a programmer or otherwise technically adept, I think it would be quite difficult for you to change this part of the game. But if you give me your email address I'll see about sending you a modded executable.

Adam Thank you! I fell in love with Pirates on the C64 back in the 80's and have followed and played it on PC since. I love this game and I'm looking forward to an improved experience. Peace

I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. :-) That helps make my effort worthwhile.
.: Thank you so much! | 2018-04-11 07:28AM :.
I've been playing pirates! since the Amiga days, and have wanted to make the modern version more difficult and fun. I'm so excited to play esp now that the indian and mission items function!
Thank you so much for all your effort, you'll make King's Advisor for this!
Sail ho! :D

The mod is great, but I have to play it on mute because duels became too noisy (plenty of surrender voice clips at sea, and clanging swords, and the noise doesn't stop after victory) and the same clanging swords effect disrupts my experience while I'm on a city visiting the Merchant of Shipwright.
Also, the voice clip for taunts during duels doesn't play.
Can you take a look into that, please? I love the soundtrack in the Pirates! game and it's annoying that I have to play it on mute.

It's the first I've heard of audio problems. Is it consistent (i.e. the battle noise continues after every victory)? If so, does reverting to the original executable (or just unchecking all the boxes and generating a new executable) fix it?
