A Brief History of Pirate Games

October 29th, 2014 | 2 Comments

I’ve been running this website for several years and occasionally I get someone e-mailing me asking: “I love Uncharted Waters: New Horizons – is there anything else you can recommend that is also good?”

Well, I had not really been keeping up on gaming very much ever since I got out of high school, but the other day I did find this great video which goes over a history of pirate video games from their beginning all the way to the present day. Included were a lot of games that I wanted to try after seeing them here!

A Special Note About Using Our Forums

July 31st, 2014 | No Comments

Hi, my name is Greg and I’m the administrator and owner of this Uncharted Waters New Horizons website – we’ve got a great little community here of lovers of this old timeless classic game, but we also have a big spam problem too.

So to combat the spam problem which was taking up too much of my personal time, I have CLOSED new account registrations for the moment. If you want to register to use the site and post on our forums, then please use the “Contact Greg” link above on the menu bar and send me your proposed username and password. Don’t worry, you can always change the password to something else later. I just need something so I can create your account. Also include a brief message so I can know for sure you are not a robot :)

Doing it this way for now I think will minimize the problems we’ve been having with spam and still allow everyone to access and post on the site without too much hassle.

Thank you,
Greg

How To Get Angels and Carronades

March 21st, 2011 | 9 Comments

First off, I’ll start with a list of figureheads (in order of usefulness) – Seahorse, Commodore, Unicorn, Lion, Giant Eagle, Hero, Neptune, Dragon, Angel, Goddess. The first 8 are available almost everywhere (although there are a few ports I’ve noticed do NOT have the Dragon until you are able to get the Angel or Goddess).

And a list of guns (also in order of usefulness) Saker, Demi-culvern, Culvern, Cannon Pedero, Demi-cannon, Cannon, Carronade. The first 6 are available at any shipyard, and since there’s only one special type of gun, it seems easier to get than the Goddess figurehead.

Ok, now to the questions of where and how to get them… continue reading

Hidden Treasures

March 21st, 2011 | 4 Comments

Sometimes you do a favor for your king and you have to find him something, so this article is about these hidden treasures that can’t be bought or sold. Next to the price is the character I found the treasure with (even though they can be found with any character who goes on such a mission for royalty) Please mail me when you find new treasures – keep in mind that these items can’t be found when they are not asked for! Plus, these treasures don’t have standard places that they show up, e.g. they are randomly placed on spots where normally a village exists, but just not on that particular time you play the game. continue reading

Port Locations

March 21st, 2011 | 2 Comments

This article lists all the ports in the game and gives their Long/Lat locations. I’ve also added the co-ordinates of every port, so when you buy a sextant or a theodolite (Amsterdam or Mecca) you can sail to any port without searching (you do need a mate with celestial navigation though).

Of course, names of cities will change after ages of existence (like Constantinople changed to Istanbul, before the game starts). But after 1522 (the beginning year of the game) some cities changed their names, so to find some cities easier, I have put the ‘real’ name behind it. Some names are just the local names (like Gdansk), although the name used in the game is still the same name used now in English (Danzig). continue reading

Important Weapons and Items

March 21st, 2011 | 1 Comment

In this article, I’m going to talk about important weapons and items in the game that every good player should know about. I’ll tell you what they are, where they are located, a simple description, and what its rating is.

This section is dedicated to all the items that can be bought in Item Shops.

When (*) this is given behind the name of the item, it has to be bought at 2:00am, 2:20am or 2:40am in every port.

When the (*) is only given next to the name of a port, it only has te bought at night in that particular port.

The items are sorted alphabetically and by category. When you want to know what is sold in a port, use CTRL+F and type the name of the port to find them.

Your capability of seizing items from an enemy’s fleet seems to depend on the quality of your battle equipment. When you are equipped with D-class equipment you won’t seize any items, but with A-class you WILL seize (an) item(s). I’m not sure if this depends totally on battle equipment, but at least it does partially. Further investigation needed.

If you sell items at the Item Shop, you can get a higher price for the goods when you first say ‘No’ to they shopkeeper. The new price he’ll offer is 41% higher. The higher your luck, the more often he will pay this price. With a luck of 100, it is guaranteed that he will offer the higher price. continue reading
