    The quest is complete as far as it goes. Midshipman through Commander (Loyalty)
    My First Ship – Battle Bloodied – Tunnel of Trouble – The Lieutenant’s Exam (Fire Ship) – The Devil and the Duchess – Land Battle – Mutiny – Capture Spanish Fort – Antigua Land Battle – Loyalty.

    Horatio Hornblower – Walkthrough (no Spoilers)
    Details have been omitted so as not to spoil the game, but hopefully enough information is given so the player might know “what to do next”

    This walkthrough works using Build 14 Beta 01 it may differ from other versions

    NOTES: The word [TRAP] appears from time to time in this walkthrough. It is not a bug. It indicates the player is at risk of a game ending action, if the correct decision is not made.
    Be careful with your officers and companions, if they are killed during a quest - the quest will not complete correctly.

    My First Ship:

    The game starts with Horatio (the player - you) in Antigua Port.

    You may wander around the port, but the "story" will not continue until you find and enter the Naval Academy and get your first orders.

    You have just arrived from England.
    Go into the Academy.
    Once in there you will automatically walk (auto-walk) to the other characters to start the dialog.

    You will be told to go to Naval Headquarters for more orders, and when that is done told to sail to Guadeloupe to land supplies.
    When the dialog is done the player should leave the Academy by the main door to the port.

    Clayton and Kennedy will complain to you about Jack Simpson.
    You should go to Naval Headquarters where you will receive orders to have larger guns fitted to the ship and get more background information.

    Leave Naval Headquarters by the main door.
    Meet Simpson. Have an argument. (auto)

    Go to the Shipyard talk to the Dockyard Commissioner and get larger guns fitted.
    You may now go to sea. (This is an auto load function which will start as you reach the end of the dock).
    Dialog with Simpson on deck as you board.

    You will be told by an office to take station as the captains boat is coming along side (auto)
    The captain will give orders to prepare for sea.
    You will take charge of the helmsman.
    Go see him and talk to him – auto go-to-sea on completion.

    Sail to Guadeloupe – (Anse Casse Bois)
    Land on beach with Simpson and Clayton where you will meet Lt. Buckland.
    He tells you, you are late. An argument with Simpson ensues. Clayton is killed. (auto)
    Lt. Buckland returns and sends you back to the ship with orders to sail to Kingston in Jamaica.
    Sail to Kingston. Go to port.

    Captain Keene, on jetty, dismisses you from his ship and you join the Indefatigable under Captain Pellew.
    (auto jump-to-new-ship)
    Another argument with Simpson on deck. Swordfight. (auto)

    Captain Pellew orders you to sail for Nevis (Charlestown) to pick up a new crew. (auto go-to-sea) [TRAP]
    Sail to Charlestown. Go to port.
    Pellew orders you to get more gunpowder for the ship.
    Go to the Store and get gunpowder.

    On leaving the store Lt. Buckland says Captain Pellew wants the new crew trained and some officers collected from Bridgetown.

    Sail to Bridgetown.

    Go to port.

    Lt. Buckland does not want to leave the ship so sends you to collect the officers. They are in the Naval Headquarters in the main town.

    Go to Naval Headquarters. (near the prison).
    Talk to officer just inside the door.
    Collect Lieutenants Bracegirdle and Quelp.

    In the Academy Captain Sawyer will discuss the battle – you are accused of fouling the Justinian’s line of attack. Pellew will defend your actions.
    Sawyer will agree and accuse Simpson.
    Simpson will attack you. (auto)

    Kill him - or be killed [Game Over].

    You are promoted to Acting Lieutenant. At end of the dialog leave the Academy by the main door and on into the port. You will receive your new uniform and meet Archie Kennedy.

    You are auto-transported to the room upstairs in the Tavern.

    yes, apparently it does. It was a great storyline, and you can tell it took a lot of work. One question though pieter, at the end of the mission, my name (or title) should still be commander right? So is it possible to raise it by doing more quests for the governors? I also heard that the governor gives you land whats all that about? Sorry for bombarding you with questions, but im still kind of new to POTC.

    I am working on the continuing story line.

    However there were two major deaths in my family last month and these have caused a lot of family grief, so I will be delayed for a while yet.

    Sorry folks

    But dont worry and take your time, the storyline is still very good even without extra work on it

    It's worth a try; you probably can. :yes

    The land gives you personal wealth, but you can't actually visit it.

    Thanks Pieter. Now it all makes sense! But why is it that when I hire an officer he gives me the option to erect a building if the land's not mine? (Final question, promise xD: )

    That's a completely different mod, namely the BuildingSet. It allows you to build all sorts all over the place.
    Sure, there's some known and unfixable bugs involved (glow in the dark/walk through walls), but it allows you to build your own towns, which can be fun.
    It doesn't care about where you are either; as the dialog explains, you could even build a brothel in a church if you'd feel so inclined. :rofl
     
  13. thanks for the idea! :rofl
    Okay now i understand. Well, thank you for clearing things up Pieter, build 14 is definately worth getting over build 13.

    I'm sorry to hear that Jack Short Gold - I have a close relative that died too recently.

    Have you tried going back to an earlier save and playing through from that.

    If the problem still happens - do you have any error logs?

    To enable error logging see this post item # 5 --->> http://forum.piratesahoy.net/index.php/topic/14915-build-mod-and-forum-faq/page__view__findpost__p__352879


    Then post the logs as attachments here.

    Does anyone have this file? I don't seem to have it in any of my game installations at all, making Sir Arthur Wellesley look quite terrifying. :shock
