"In an honest service there is thin commons, low wages, and hard labour. In this, plenty and satiety, pleasure and ease, liberty and power; and who would not balance creditor on this side, when all the hazard that is run for it, at worst is only a sour look or two at [hanging]? No, a merry life and a short one shall be my motto." - Bartholomew Roberts A General History of the Robberies and Murders of the most notorious Pyrates (1724) "Fear not the sea, for those born to hang will never drown." - Ancient Proverb Intro Nassau 1715 is about the economic, social and power struggles that occurred in the West Indies during the early 18th century and the events leading to that, telling the true and brutal story behind some of history's most notorious criminals who plundered the seas and the bold and determined men who hunted them down. This is a proof of concept release. This is not meant to be a complete conversion for ArmA 3. Rather it's meant to show that this concept, 18th century naval warfare, is possible in ArmA. Another goal of the proof of concept is to attract more developers to help with the long term goal of creating a complete total modification for ArmA 3, DayZ or even ArmA 4. After the proof of concept release the project will be reevaluated for a viable total modification. In the long term, the mod is planned to encompass some of the most significant events in Europe and the West Indies that led to the Golden Age of Piracy, including parts of the War of Spanish Succession and the English privateer voyages in the West Indies against the Spanish and French. These events come together with the wrecking of the Spanish Plate Fleet of 1715 off the coast of Florida, leading to the rise of the Pirate Republic at Nassau, New Providence Island. From there, Nassau 1715 explores the world of pirates of the West Indies and the East Coast of America, and the steps taken by the English government and colonies to suppress them, using real life events as a story backdrop for multiplayer gameplay in an open world setting. The biggest feature of Nassau 1715 is being able to authentically sail large vessels, therefore sailing, while greatly simplified from real life, is difficult and challenging, requiring basic seamanship and knowledge. You must read the field manual in the game and review the Quick Sail Guide in order sail. Screenshots Features Included in this release are Several Sloops (including: Adventure, Albas, Royal James and Antelope) 1-Pounder Swivel Gun 6-Pounder Naval Cannon .62 Flintlock Pistol .69 Naval Pattern Carbine 17 Uniforms (not counting variants) 3 Vests (not counting variants) 4 Hats (not counting variants) Map of Gun & Cat Cay High Seas Map Ingame Documentation/Field Manual Some Basic Missions (SP & MP) More content will be added over time. Quick Sail Guide Quick Sail Guide Considerations while playing You must learn how to sail in order to sail. This is not an arcade game, it's an authentic simulation of sailing. It will be difficult. You should expect to be frustrated and confused at first. Only after studying the art of sailing you will be good at sailing. In order to become a better sailor you should listen and follow the instructions of more experienced players who know how to sail. Sailing is a crew effort based on skill and knowledge. If you are a beginner you should avoid shoals at all cost or you'll run aground. Because this is an early proof of concept release, features, classnames and assets may change and/or be removed. This mod brings gameplay features that have never been attempted before in ArmA, so there will glitches and other issues. Lastly this was develop with the idea of being used on a multiplayer server. Compatibility We did not specifically develop this mod with compatibility to other popular mods in mind, therefore you may encounter some issues if you choose to use this mod with another mod. Compatibility with other mods isn't a priority since every other mod is from a different century.

I announced this project a year ago as just one ship, the H.M.S. Persephone, a 6th rate Galley Frigate of 20 guns, 1724. But in reality it was more than just one ship, rather it’s a proof of concept of features and assets for a total modification tentatively called Nassau 1715. Nassau 1715 focuses on the social, power and economic struggles that occurred in the West Indies in the early 18th Century, telling the true and bloody story of history's most notorious and barbaric criminals who plundered the seas and the bold men who hunted them down. Nassau 1715 is still very much in a conceptual stage (big surprise ArmA isn’t exactly the ideal platform for such a game), but a lot of amazing things have been accomplished so far. It’s too early to say if this will turn into a mod since there’s still a lot to do, but we’re going to keep working on it and see where it goes. Some of the features of this project that are being worked on is the ability to walk on the decks of moving ships, the ability to authentically sail a ship, naval gunnery and combat and other special features. Some of the created assets are shown below. But a lot more is needed for this project. Please click below to see the assets this project needs. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
