I am trying to track down an old game I used to play quite a few years ago (I want to say about 10 years ago but it could be less than that). It was a sailing/trading/exploration MMO game with sailing mechanics very similar to Sid Meyer's Pirates. As far as I can remember this game had no on land element to it - you had no character avatar, just a boat to sail and complete quests with, trade, ect.
if I remember correctly the sailing was a little less forgiving than SMP, with prevailing winds often forcing you to take very wide tacks toward your destination, and NPC pirates and player characters always eager to sink you to the bottom. I also believe it was set in colonial era of the New World (not 100% possitive on this though).
Again this was an older game so the graphics were not great, and it had that top down view that SMP uses for sailing. I've been looking all over for it but I can't track down any mention of it (I know this probably means its closed up shop, but Id like to know for sure).
Here is a list of games Ive looked at already and know that it is not:
Uncharted Waters Online
Pirates of the Caribbean Online
Pirates of the Burning Sea
Captians of Darktide
East India Company
Pirate King Online
Bounty Bay Online
If you have any ideas please let me know - thanks for reading and responding
