A Backstory!
Around 1480 A.D., with the development of industry and commerce and the progress of ship building skill, countries in Asia and Europe began to realize the importance of the sea. Some fleets came up. Soon, countries on the Mediterranean coast started to explore their own sea route. Blue and deep sea was considered as the passage to the gold kingdom, waiting for men to explore.

In late 17th century, for each of their own interest, countries in the west built new battleships, made up great fleets. And then ballets of large scale for sea hegemony started.

FAQ!
Q:How do I change the resolution?
A:You have to edit the Core.ini file in your C:\Program Files\Voyage Century Online\voyage folder. Change the values Screen_X and Screen_Y to their respective values.
Example:
Screen_X 1440
Screen_Y 900

Q:How do I repair my ship at port?
A:Go to the shipyard boss, select Buy/Repair and click the Repair button, then click the picture of your ship(not the bow or sail slots) and select Yes.

I started playing again a little while ago, they are running a newbie special where you get a very strong starter ship, a special figurehead, Stat raising jewelry and clothes.
I figured I would pop on here, see if there are any other players and hopefully attract some new ones. There is the option to start a Guild so if we have at least 4 active players we could start a PA Guild.
Happy Sailing!

    This looks a looooot like POTBS.

    Is it actually worth the time to download?

    This one has been around for several years. It is relatively well put together but is lacking some polish, it is a fun game though. So, is it worth the download? I guess that is really up to you.

    I used to play this game all the time, even managed to get my father hooked on the game. After awhile though, I just burnt out of it.

    Though the cannons that have the 120 degree firing arc are monsters.

    Edit:
    Also, being a pirate is actually difficult in this. If you're out near cities during the day, you'll be attacked by their NPC ships which are very high in level. Not only that, but other players can freely attack you. If you're a pirate, it's best to voyage around night, where the NPC ships are gone and the towers are asleep.

    Isn't this the same pirate MMO they keep releasing under a different name every so often?

    I played this a while back and just started playing it again not 2 days ago. It is a lot of fun and has seen many improvements, a lot of the engrish has been fixed (some still exists in weird spots) and there is quite a bit of stuff to do. You can sail around from port to port ala Pirates!, go up close for pretty awesome sea battles with cannons, grappling hooks for melee fights, battering rams, and several types of cannon balls. (Also mines and whatnot were added not too long ago) The crafting is very robust as well for a f2p mmo, letting you chop wood, mine ore, grow crops, to make new ships, weapons, clothing, tools, upgrades, all types of things. The port areas mostly all have a surrounding "countryside" filled with harvesting spots, and monsters that you can fight and level up on. Many little things I haven't touched on have been added over the last year or so, making it up there on the list of F2P MMOs with great games like Atlantica.

    It's rare that you can do most of a game without cash shop items, but luckily this game lets you. One of the only things you cannot do without using cash shop items is having a pet, though I think you can purchase the items with in game money from other players if I recall.

    You know it is a good game when you actually want to play it over other things you are paying for at the moment such as new games or paid MMOs.
