Issues unresolved[edit]

Frozen ship bug[edit]

Sometimes the game will completely freeze, and the ships and timer will also freeze (although it is still possible to interact with the towns.[1]

Talking to the Architect in town and accessing the Build grid seems to unfreeze time, though the bug might still recur.

Missing Building Name In Town[edit]

When a player reaches a certain rank, building names over buildings disappear.

Shipyard Bug[edit]

When a shipyard has more than 1 ship to offer, it frequently auto-selects the 1st ship. Players could accidentally buy the wrong ship if they are not clicking the buy button fast enough.

Reputation Bug[edit]

On version 1.1.2 quests aren't giving any reputation increase.

Issues fixed[edit]

Autosave[edit]

Reportedly, loading a game will not allow saves to be made automatically.[2]

This can be fixed by starting a new game, and then loading the save game again.[3] [4]

Autosave timer can also be adjusted by going into the Options.cfg in %APPDATA%\Kalypsomedia\Port Royale 3\

There is a section where one can adjust the number of seconds between autosaves:

[Autosave]
Timer = 480
