    Using the HPBonus you can give it a description which will show up in the character interface as a HP bonus but it wont show it as a buff.
    Say you want to have more things which buff davy jones you can group them or only take the HP bonus and add them to a buff which says something like "Calypso's Curse" this way it will also show up as a buff.

    Besides that no real advantage

    2 Things that are easily done: Jones should have a better sword and at least a normal spyglass, and maybe a good compass

    Indeed that sounds reasonable and should indeed be easy enough.

    Hello, I've already posted in another page HERE.

    I have been trying The Flying Dutchman challenge and I do enjoy it quite the bit, however getting enough crew is the only problem. This problem isn't that I gain a small amount per ship but when I board and they have not surrendered, my crew get obliterated, I lose more crew while trying to gain more. This "issue" is kind of gamebreaking to me. Is there any way to add HP to my crew, I know there is a way to modify the Curse of Cortez crews HP already, but nothing that makes it appliable to the Chest of Davy Jones curse since it only affect the player.

    (I don't know if necroing is allowed, sorry in advance if it is. This was the only related post about this challenge.)

    Not a problem at all.
    As far as I'm concerned, posting in a relevant thread is very welcome indeed! :onya

    Thanks for the feedback! That's good to know.
    I won't be near my computer for the next three days, so cannot give an instant answer.
    But I can definitely think of some ways to tweak the Curse of Cortez for your purposes.
    Should be quite doable. :yes

    Relevant code is in PROGRAM\NK.c ; search for "curse".
    That one adds 300 HP at night for any character carrying a cursed coin.
    What needs tweaking:
    - Remove the difference between night and day
    - Check not each individual character for a cursed coin, but check the MAIN character for the chest of Davy Jones
    - Have it apply only to characters allied to the player

    I'm afraid that's a little out of my comfort zone, I'm not so familiar with adding new lines, only editing existing. Thanks for the help tho! :onya
