[Discussion] The Pirate's Cove Navigator

If some of you old timers remember, there used to exist a tool called Shinan's Navigator which was basically an atlas of VCO, containing lots of information about all aspects of the game. When Shinan left the game, it was taken over by Smirnoff and for a while it was called Smirnoff's Navigator. After he left the game, that great tool was completely lost.

We are proud to announce that it has been revived once again! ledhed and I have been working on it for the past couple of months, steadily improving it, collecting information.

We've put up a preview version so you can see how it looks like. Its way different than Shinan's navigator and much more powerful. Although it doesn't contain much useful information for the time being, it could provide some useful information for pirate boss hunters out there, especially now when everyone is looking for legendary generals.

I was working on the core part, so I didn't have much time to gather information. If anyone would like to contribute, let me know. I would like someone from other servers to gather colony ownership information. I don't have characters there and making a new one, sailing around the world, gathering info would take a really long time.

We have great plans for it ourselves, but if you have your own idea of how to improve it further, feel free to let us know. Any constructive feedback is welcomed, wether its positive or negative.

Navigator can be found here:

In case you're interested, contains other useful tools for every day use, like ingot calculators and such. The site is maintained by ledhed and me.

looking good!

 not sure if anyone does discoveries anymore...
 I dont think you get profession points with them.. just low amounts of exp.
(I know old trader/adventure/warrior tasks do not give profession exp..  i tried them when trying to get a char up a level for the exp guide)

Amazing job to all who are working on this!

If I remember correctly there was (in the old one) also an option of choosing the goods/plants/etc and when typed in, it showed you in which city it was (i don't remember exactly but i think it was also the level included). I was wondering if that is also the plan of implementing it in the future, sorta combining the trading goods, planting and mining into this new navigator. I think it would be a benefit of having everything in one spot as we used to.

Keep on the good work!

Unless of course someone wants to help the cause . I stepped up years ago when a group showed interest , but seems to vanished . I paid anyway but since then I have suffered a stroke and now have some huge medical cost each month . Plus IGG is useless when you need service . So it took me a few months to get a pass working , but at least an admin asked / noticed , I was missing . So I got some attention there . This site is for the community anyone who wishes to help keep it going until I get my self situated can contact me by PM , I have paypal but do not think a patreon is needed as I can do this but as I said , time is an issue .
