    Wheee, awesome! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbs1.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":2up" border="0" alt="thumbs1.gif" /> Thanks so very much. I tried looking one up in a naval dictionary but gave up after a fruitless hour.

    Cheers Peter!
    It looks like the right place for this info. Thank you! <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bow.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":bow" border="0" alt="bow.gif" />

    lol This is exactly why I started browsing the files... which I actually didn't want to do before, afraid of ruining the fun and novelty of the game... <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />
    ... but after typing like mad "Hawse Pipe" - on the question about the name of the hole for the anchor rope, with no benefit... <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> I decided to surrender and look into what is happening... which is that the game wants the answer: "Howse-Hole" for that speciffic question... so the nautical dictionary would not help much <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    Now enjoy!

    Sounds and looks to me like this is another case of half assed translations. Didn't one or more of the translators take the time to actually bust out a nautical manual during the translation process? Or did they just label up a dart board and throw, hoping they'd get even close to what should have been said?

    Well actually, according to what I found online, a hawse hole is a hull opening through which mooring lines are run. Hawse pipes are hawse hole fittings used to stow and protect the upper portion of the anchor rode in larger vessels. If I understand it correctly, the hole is the hole, while the pipe is specifically the protective metal plating of the hole.
    As an aspiring professional translator I've found the translation overall quite good. There's the occasional odd word or wonky phrasing, but that can't be helped, even the best make mistakes. That's what proof reading and editors are for.

    thanks much i was relying on google, rather than to be bothered to search the game files for for text strings <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> but there wasa few questions where it was incredibly difficult to find using web search.

    Hi, first of all congratulations for this awesome community, I´ve been reading time ago when I played PoTC and find the Build Mod. For some time I stopped playing it (big fan and modder of motorsport simulators). Now I´m back with this new game...

    Is there any chance to find it for other localized versions of the game? I´m spanish and I´ve only installed the game in spanish language...

    BEST REGARDS

    When im trying to find something i just take a unique part of the game im trying to find, like when i searched the answer for the quiz i went in program folder, turned on the search feature, and made a *search-in file* research and no a simple search wich gave me all file with the *vaisseau allant d'un bord* wich gave me this file in return.

    LSC_Q2Utilite.h

    Have fun, and next time you try to find the good file, the *search inside file* feature will be your best friend.

    Various weapon, bonus items and equipment that are supposed to be very rare.

    Very rare?
    Not really - among the items I've got so far were atill, excellent spyglass and a hurricane. And a few trinkets, but everything very easy to get as common loot or in stores...

    Sounds like we need to massage the rarity system and get some stuff that is very tough to find so these questions have more purpose.
