      • PvP Infamy Rewards:
        • French and Spanish vendors now have very different items for sale. The majority of the old items can be found at the Spanish vendor, with new ones on the French isle. The vendor in Barbossa's Grotto sells items from both shops.
        • An entirely new set of face tattoos is available at the French vendor. These can get pretty freaky - wear at your own risk!
        • New "fresh" versions of the Pirate Brand and Bullet Wound scars are now available at the Spanish vendor. You can still by the classic versions on the French island.

        • Two new eye tattoos are available are Land Infamy rank 4, one on each SvS island.
      • Tattoos:

        • The old tattoo selections have been split up between shops on Port Royal and Padres del Fuego.

      • Bonnet, EITC Boots, Navy Shoes, Cuff Boots, Male Closed Coat, Female Closed Coat, Navy Tricorne, Bandana, Long Skirt, High Neck Shirt
      • Various pieces of jewelry.
      • Various news pop-ups will now use new icons.
    Bugfixes
    • Miscellaneous fixes:
      • Enemies defeated in Hollowed Woods will now properly count toward quests that require you to kill enemies in any jungle or in any location on Port Royal.
      • Fixed a district reset when going to jail from a flagship.
      • Fixed a district reset when going to jail from the Underground Parlor Games.
      • Fixed a district reset with enemies & barricades in Invasions.
      • Fixed a district reset with random bosses.
      • Fixed an issue that would have caused the Father's Day quest to be unplayable by pirates that completed it last year.
      • The new monkey and skull compass emblems will no longer be used on Treasure Fleet ships.
    • Peddler fixes:
      • Fixed an issue that would have caused the Crimson Captain outfit to expire from the catalog early.
      • Tweaked the August outfit to have a belt for females.
    • PvP fixes:
      • Fixed a crash when accepting an invite.
      • Fixed a district reset when defeating someone in PvP.
      • Fixed an issue that allowed players in a PvP match to teleport to someone in a different match.
      • Fixed an issue that caused some PvP invites to not go through.
      • Fixed an issue where credit would not be awarded properly when someone was defeated with a grenade.
      • Another potential fix for the black screen bug at the end of a match.
      • Unfortunately, this is hard to test internally. We need a large number of players doing PvP to see if the fix did indeed work. Please send us your feedback on this!
      • Prevented connector tunnels from spawning within PvP areas.
      • The game will no longer incorrectly tell you that you ranked up in Infamy after every single kill you make.
    • SvS/Sailing fixes:
      • Increased the speed of the ship task again to hopefully make broadsides less wonky and ships less likely to zip around randomly.
      • Increased the SvS bounty cap to 35,000, up from 1,000.
    • Texture fixes:
      • Adjustments to the female Carnival Day Blouse to remove seams.
      • Disney's previously unused plain High Neck shirt now has folds and texture around the neck.
      • Fixes to the Traveler's Ostrich Hat so there isn't a big gap in the buckle on the top.
      • Made changes to the 2008 version of the Seafoam Corset so it'd work on 2013 bodies a little better.
      • Minor tweaks to the Bonnet texture.
      • Removed a black line from the back of the male Evening Jacket.
    • User Interface fixes:
      • Fixed an issue with the cargo pop-up message not displaying loot earned when a ship is sunk. It'd always show up in your cargo hold, but wouldn't appear in the "Plunder!" notifications.
      • Player cards will now display the island the PvP maps are located on. Tortuga for Pillager's Pass and Padres Del Fuego for Molten Cavern.
    Maintenance
    • Added some logging functionality to help debug sailing loot.
      • We know how big of an issue this is, and we're doing everything we can to fix it. This is one big step towards that. Thanks again for your continued patience and support!
    • Changes to holiday date ranges.
    • Code cleanup.
    • Implemented a new functionality for holidays on the backend.
    • Tons of localizer tweaks and fixes. Bad grammar is not tolerated here.
    • We have temporarily disabled the Queen Anne's Revenge so it will not break players' ships while we patch up its bugs.
    • Whitelist and blacklist updates.
    Known Issues
    • The extensive list of known issues from 1.14.0 still stands. We're working on them.
      • Some of them are much more complex than others. We really appreciate your patience. Just hang in there!
    • Some players may notice that the gold drops in the Double Gold Event seem off. The gold is doubled properly, but the way it's displayed makes it look like it's giving you half the amount.
      • The amount, in reality, isn't halved and is still double that of what would normally be looted.
      • This is an old bug from back in Disney days. We will fix it at some point, but other more serious issues, like the ones we listed in 1.14.0, take priority.
