This article contains information about the game, Pirates Online Rewritten.
The content of this article will most likely be implemented into the game.

Important Developer Note:
When Pirates Online Rewritten is first released, it most likely will NOT include new ship types. However, later on, new classes of ships may be added. There are two ships that would most likely be added first because they have actually some work done already. One being the Carrack and the other being the Ship of the Line.

Here are some proposed stats for the Carrack class of ship. The stats are based off of the existing ship classes. In the traditional order of ships in Pirates Online, it falls between the Galleon and Frigate classes. Its stats are very similar to the galleon except it has much more Armor (hull health) and Sails (sails health) with less cannons and broadsides than the galleon. In addition, the Carrack has the ability to carry slightly more cargo than the Galleon. Its cost lies between the Galleons and Frigates.

Historical Points:
I choose these stats because Carracks were known to be used for exploration. They were bulky ships (thus larger armor and sails) designed to explore the oceans over long distances (larger cargo capacity). During this time of exploration, piracy or war was hardly a threat, this is why it has less deck cannons and broadsides. So why do galleons carry less cargo and have more cannons? With piracy being a huge threat, the navies had to trade cargo capacity for cannons (protection). With the added weight of the cannons, the ships were limited to carry less cargo.

Light Carrack:

  • Armor: 4,000
  • Sails: 5,500
  • Cannons: 4
  • Broadsides: 8
  • Cargo: 12
  • Crew: 4
  • Cost: 600 Gold
  • Resale Value: 300 Gold


  • Armor: 8,000
  • Sails: 8,000
  • Cannons: 6
  • Broadsides: 16
  • Cargo: 16
  • Crew: 6
  • Cost: 4500 Gold
  • Resale Value: 2250 Gold

War Carrack:

  • Armor: 12,000
  • Sails: 11,000
  • Cannons: 8
  • Broadsides: 22
  • Cargo: 20
  • Crew: 8
  • Cost: 50,000 Gold
  • Resale Value: 25,000 Gold

The base speed would be 9, the same as the Frigate, but would have the same turning radius as a galleon.
