    Punctuation can help make your post a lot easier to read. ;)

    The thread on where to download the Build 14 mod for PoTC is here:
    Mod Release - Build 14 Beta 4.1 WIP [Last Update: 7 January 2017] | PiratesAhoy!

    Barbossa is present in the mod. If you play the standard storyline, you'll meet him near the end as the captain of the Black Pearl. Another storyline is based more closely on the original "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, so you'll definitely see Barbossa in that. Alternatively there's Free Play, in which you can just sail around and do piratey things without being tied to a storyline, featuring a wide range of playable characters. Barbossa is one of those characters.

    So you think POTC is Better at the mods? Or Age Of Pirates 2? And sorry I'll try to make my sentences better. Which game you have Barbossa with the queens anns revenge for the mod? And one more question whats the first game actually called? besides POTC Because it says when I look up the game its part of the age of pirates series.?

    Ahoy there, @Captain Bones and welcome to the forum!

    If you like the Pirates of the Caribbean films, then the choice between PotC or AoP 2 becomes very simple: Get PotC!
    We've got a lot of PotC film content added through the mods, including film ships, characters, a Jack Sparrow storyline, the Curse of Cortez and several related sidequests and cameos.
    On the other hand, AoP 2 only has a very limited set of the film character and ship models, but nothing else.

    In PotC, one of the "default" starting choices for the Free Play storyline allows you to start as Barbossa,
    in command of the Cursed Black Pearl with the Curse of Cortez already in effect.
    That is admittedly quite a challenging start and perhaps not a good one to begin with! But it's possible. :doff

    I'm not sure if the Queen Anne's Revenge is one of the AoP 2 mods at all, but she's definitely in PotC.
    You can put Barbossa in command of her, if you like. She even has functional "flamethrower cannons" from On Stranger Tides. :cheeky

    Nice Pieter! that's Awesome! makes me want to get the game now.:shock :D So I pretty much know what I need to get and all I need to do is download the mod. Just one more question I mentioned Earlier whats the actually name of the game? I keep editing the comments trying to make my sentences better and legit my bad about that I'm new to this whole system. I can't wait to get my hands on the game and play it.:D And is Barbossa's Model with the peg leg or no? And I totally forgot I have a Windows 10 Samsung laptop will the game CD work with windows 1o?

    The game you need is called "Pirates of the Caribbean" and was released in 2003 to coincide with the release of the first movie.
    It was made by Akella, distributed by Bethesda and licensed by Disney, if I recall.
    See also here: New Horizons FAQ | PiratesAhoy!

    The model currently in the mod is the one from the first trilogy (the one from your avatar, actually).

    I wonder though.... @Grey Roger or @Jack Rackham, how hard would it be to make a character who looks like this?
    [​IMG]
    With another PotC film being released later this year, chances are VERY high that more people will be interested in that!

    The game can indeed run on Windows 10, but there are indeed two things you should be aware of:
    Solved - Windows 10: Low Frame Rates Despite (BECAUSE OF!) Good Hardware | PiratesAhoy!
    Solved - Fix for Intel Graphics Card problems (Laptop NVidia users) | PiratesAhoy!
    With alternate: Spoiler - Intel Compatibility: Possible Solution | PiratesAhoy!

    Here's a screenshot of Blackbeard with the Queen Anne's Revenge, by the way:

    Could be done. But he will have a hook instead of one hand and the coat will be shorter.

    The shkipher head and the corsair3 body are the most corresponding to the picture. Maybe some more hair/beard can be added.
    Hers's an example before retexturing.

    I wouldn't dare ask for perfection; I'll gladly settle for "good enough"! :woot

    It could be that @damski62 once made a CoAS version of him.
    But I got confused on how to add him to PotC and so that never happened....
    Not sure if the relevant files are still anywhere to be found either.

    Wow picture looks great and the ship to!:shock And yeah it would be cool if you guys did like Barbossa with his new outfit it would be really awesome if you guys added the sword of Triton to! from the new pirates 5 coming out. You guys have the queens Anne's revenge pretty much you guys gotta do the model of the character and sword if its needed I mean it would be awesome for both. The best part my 18th birthday is at may 24th and the movie is coming two days after my birthday would be awesome if you guys did this for a birthday gift for the mod I honestly would be very thankful for you guys and be really happy. @Pieter Boelen:cheers:bird::)
    And I finally figured out what game POTC was on the pc like the name. Is the actually name of the game is Age Of Pirates Caribbean Tales?

    At least the peg-leg is the right one. I don't have time to try retexturing him now but can add it to my to-do-list
    if you guys think the model combo is ok.

    NO! Age of Pirates is a different game.
    The game I mean is exactly the one I said.

    Whoever said that isn't already in the mod? What do you think Blackbeard is holding on that screenshot? ;)
    Actually, last week we did some work to add an extra special power to that sword:
    Sword of triton | PiratesAhoy!

    Just checking; Privateer Barbossa is on your to-do list, right?
    I'll be looking forward to seeing him in the game as he could be used for some nice promotion when the new PotC film is released soon! :woot
