    I had the time to think, and then, to make at you some asks that will need replies, because, as you have seen and read, I'm a hard roleplayer, then these infos are really useful for me.

    Playing PotC-NH, I have seen that nations are at war or not, change alliance, and make war or peace at certain times.

    My 1st ask is:
    these are real historical times or not? Example, if Britain cease to war against France in a certain day, is referred to a historical fact, or peace and wars aren't historical at all?

    The 2nd ask is similar:
    As you have seen, I'm not only a roleplayer, but also I like real history. If I start a game at 1775 (then when is started the American Indipendence war) the war end in 1783 like in history?
    And also, if I start a game in 1812, US stop the war against England at the right time?

    Then, the 3rd ask:
    There's a chance that in the next PotC-NH mod version, GB-US wars will start and end in the right historical times? I ask this because in 1770, US and GB are already at war, and in the real world this will not happen until april 19, 1775 (I have seen in wikipedia for the real war time and days)

    Well, while I wait your replies, I go to place a game that will start in November 9, 1775-US rebels will be sink, for the glory of our king George!

    It's fully random.


    Depends if somebody makes that.
    The usual answer is: You want it, you make it. :rolleyes:

    No. There are a whole range of relation set-ups based on starting date and on historical wars which were in progress on that date. So if you pick a date in the middle of the War of the League of Augsburg, for example, relations will be set for that war. But relation changes within the game are random.

    Possibly change the definitions of "Colonial Powers" and "Revolutions" periods in "PROGRAM\Periods.c", so that "Colonial Powers" ends in 1774 and "Revolutions" starts in 1775? Or even change them to 1775 and 1776 respectively because the US didn't exist until it declared independence in 1776. Prior to that, if you want to play as an American, you're actually a British Rebel and can set up your game accordingly.
