I have released the Pirates from the scenario "The Great Mithridatic War". You may play any of the four factions, included the pirates. So far this mod is quite limited, because:
-you can't build new units, but you can buy reinforcements
-you don't have regional or political options. You don't need them, anyway. Remember, you are a pirate!
You will earn money every new year, starting on Mars. You are free to destroy the Roman trade, conquer Roman cities or roaming about, free as the wind. That's up to you.
I have made this scenario "light" on purpose. Just two files: the pirates.scn and the new frise. So no need to backup anything.
No name in the scenario list, just a number, because I haven't used a modified LocalStrings file. This is made on purpose. But you'll see the pirate flag to pick it.
I will consider making a real scenario according to public wishes. Just tell ne what you want. I was thinking to add more target cities, a new leader and maybe some events.
To install it:
Unrar the files inside your AJE folder. You don't need to backup anything. This is a clean install.
