    I don't know if my question will be understood :urgh ... Is there anyway to make two random ships board each other? It would be cool. Another great feature would be to make more ships board in the same time (not only two).

    That has been discussed and might be possible, but no one is willing to do it.

    In real naval combat of the era, it was rare for more than two ships to be in a boarding action at once, partly because of the technical problems of sailing and partly because it was usually not useful...an exception was the way "normal" pirate craft worked, they were often small feluca or lanteen rigged very fast ships contrary to Hollywood images...and they would operate in packs, often coming along side their victims with two ships one on each quarter to overwhelm opposition. So that would indeed be fun to see in the sim.

    Bet it is a bit of coding to make it work tho.

    This would make sense, since it's weird that the player ship is involved in every boarding that takes place in the game.
    But it requires somebody to code it and we've got nobody at the moment and a lot of other things to do still. :facepalm
