What I want to say is that I think it will be a great adquisition to the game to add this incredible ship. The spanish Man’o’War from Black Sails was a beautiful and powerful ship which most of people I think will enjoy. Of course I don’t know how complicate is adding a new model ship in this game, but I think it will be worthy trying to include this ship in the game. Admins just tell me what you think about.

I saw the pictures you put up on the other post https://buccaneersreef.com/forums/topic/about-maelstrom-and-updates/
I loved that ship when I watched the series. I would love to have that model in the game. However, do you have a copy of the model and permission to use it? That’s the question. I can make an inquiry as well. I have several beautiful models available for inclusion in the game right now but need a modeler to modify them for the game.
I am learning slowly to do this myself but after years of tinkering with old Maya and the plugins still haven’t mastered the process. If I had help that would be wonderful because our own modeler Orazio has gone missing for the last year or more.
I just put up a Patreon page at the behest of many people who say they want to help us. We will see where it goes. I was swindled out of thousands by someone who didn’t have the talent (never listen to families recommendations) to try to get a new website up and its going to take four thousand more dollars now to get a new proper website made by a legitimate company willing to do the work.
In addition, I need money to pay a modeler willing to jump aboard and do the work. There is a whole pool of available modelers who can do it – but I need to pay them. I have already put THOUSANDS of dollars into this website and this game. I have spent hundreds on hardware for people who helped – I have spent thousands for some of the models you are enjoying – and I have spent thousands on this website (I just spent another 359 dollars for another year with Go-Daddy and WordPress with all the SL certificates, security, support etc…)
I am not spending anymore of my own money on this game. I may really love it but I think I am one of the few people who still play it. I think Jeffrey has even lost interest at this point – so unless there is a significant infusion of cash this year – I will be moving on to other important targeting pursuits in the next year.

I did not expect that putting a new ship model in the game could cost so much money. The truth is that everything you tell me is a job of considerable dimensions and you have my respects for everything you have done all this time. I love this game and although sometimes I stopped playing it for several months, I even went for about 1 year without playing, I always return to dedicate several hours to satisfy my craving for piracy that comes in.
Currently I cannot afford it but I would not mind making donations to the game so it does not get stuck and continue to evolve. I am hopeful that I can enjoy the Gulf of Mexico along with the corresponding port cities.
Thank you very much for your answer and I hope that when things go better for me I can contribute my bit to this game.
