    Ahoy, everyone!

    We’re back for this month’s big update! This time around, we put a lot of focus on player customization (and bugfixes!). Lots of new clothing, jewelry, and tattoos are now available. Here are the details!

    First thing’s first, there are new bright colors: Bright Pink, Bright Purple, and Electric Blue. You can loot ‘em anywhere, as long as you’re level 30+.

    Alongside the new colors comes a slew of new dyeable items. What does this mean? It means Dark Black Long Coats, Long Skirts, Shorts, and yes, Ostrich Hats. Tons of other new items are available in bright colors now too. Ye best start lootin’!

    We also added a whole other set of items, by player request: Accented Clothing. Accented items look Dark Black on their own, but with white accents. When you loot one in a bright color, only the white sections will change. Many of the new colorable hats also have accented versions, as do a few vests.

    On the tattoo and jewelry front, we have a lot of fun stuff. Tattoo and jewelry stores now have different selections depending on the island you go to. Want tribal tattoos, head to Cuba! Detailed ones? Tortuga! Full chest tattoos? Padres! Same deal for Jewelers.

    One more thing we want to touch on is uni*** hats. Lady pirates have been “marooned on a desert island” as it were, when it comes to hats. We wanted to fix that. All Ostrich Hats, Tricornes, and EITC Hats are now uni***. All ye lasses out there can pick up tricornes and EITC hats at tailors right now. You can also loot the Dark Ostrich Hat. We know you’ll want the quest Ostrich Hats too, but that has its own set of complications that have arisen, ensued, and will be overcome, savvy? Stay tuned.

    In celebration of Ostrich Hats for all, you can redeem the code RED by June 17th for your very own Red Ostrich Hat!

    But that’s not all! This summer is just beginning! We have a lot of fun stuff coming. A Double Gold event is live NOW and will last until June 17th. Stay tuned for Double Experience and Double Materials in July and August respectively. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t spotlight the Father’s Day event coming later this month. Be sure to do the quest for double XP, mates!

    This isn’t where we’re stopping! We’ll of course continue to update the game over the course of the summer. Keep yer eye out! PvPers, we’ve got some fun stuff for you, beyond the new items we added at Infamy Vendors. Keep a weather eye on the horizon!

    Have fun about the isles, mates! Enjoy this lovely Caribbean summer!

    I had these types of colors before it was cool.

    But now, grayness has been nonconsensually imposed upon me...
    It's like being forced from this:

    Could use another page since there's more bright colors but it's great to see more stuff added.

    This is gonna be a bright summer :D. It would also be nice if Ravens cove teleportation quest would get fixed. I´ve already contacted TLOPO Support but they said I should wait. I´m just curious and all if it will come any time soon other than that this is a nice update.

    P.S Rip @Charles Warmonk for having to grind for more bright now :C

    2018-6-11 tlopo-rc-v1.15.0 Summer in TLOPO! Enjoy a new "double" event every month. This month, earn double gold June 10th-17th! Redeem the code RED by June 17th for a new Ostrich Hat! Features Lootable Clothing: New bright colors: Bright Pink, Bright Purple, Electric Blue, and Gold. Lootable at levels 30+! New cotton versions of the following items can now be found in loot, and yes, you can find them in bright colors! Bonnet, Cavalier Hat, Cavalry Hat, Feathered Tricorne, Gaucho, High Wing Hat, Navy Tricorne, Ostrich Hat, Stocking Cap, Stove Hat, Female Long Skirt, Male High Neck Shirt, Male Long Coat, Male Puffy-Sleeved Shirt, Male Shorts Cavalier Hat, Cavalry Hat, Feathered Tricorne, High Wing Hat, Navy Tricorne, Ostrich Hat, Closed Female Vest, Embellished Vest, Low Corset, Open Male Vest, Striped Male Tank



    Female Clothing: A colorable Long Skirt is now available at a few different tailors. A new hat type, Bonnet, can now be found in loot. All Bandanas, EITC Hats, Ostrich Hats, and Tricornes, are now uni*** and available for females. All unreleased versions of the 3 above hat types will be available for both genders when released. Ladies can now loot the Dark Ostrich Hat. Ladies can now purchase Admiral Hats and Rough Tricornes from Tailors. Now that Ostrich Hats are completely uni***, we expect to see a demand for the quest ostrich hats for females. That functionality isn't available yet, but we are looking into it! Male Clothing: Colorable Long Coats, High Neck Shirts, Puffy-Sleeved Shirts, and Shorts are now available at various tailors. Some unreleased bandanas and bands that were available only for females are now wearable by men as well. They will be available for both genders when released. Turned on the following shirts. They can now be found in loot. Fleet Long Sleeve, Fleet Short Sleeve, Laced Long Sleeve, Laced Short Sleeve Miscellaneous features: Added some higher resolution rock textures. Classic 2008 versions of some items are now available... but where??? Previously discontinued crude starter weapons are now available at Blacksmiths, Gunsmiths, and Gypsies. We have improved the stats on the Cursed Blade of Yore based on player feedback. Yes! This is one of the new legendary cursed blades. And yes, it has been found! We'll have an announcement and reveal its stats soon! Stay tuned!



    Jewelry: Jewelry stores have been reworked much like with Tattoos, but for finger rings. Padres del Fuego now sells rings for the ring finger or "third" finger. Port Royal now sells rings for the index finger. Previously discontinued items such as the Golden/Silver Knuckles, single hoop earrings, and lone ear cuffs, are once again for sale at all Jewelers. Tortuga now sells rings for the middle finger. These were the previously released designs. Peddlers: Added another new Peddler outfit, but no spoilers! You'll see what it is in July (which will have two new outfits). Mardi Gras and Caribbean Day tricornes now have feathers for males. New Holiday Peddler Outfit: Fourth of July. The Pilgrim Explorer outfit has been removed from general loot and has been re-purposed as a Thanksgiving holiday outfit. PvP: After each kill, text will appear on screen and in chat showing you how many Infamy points you earned. This works for SvS as well. The Brawl sword skill will now stun players in PvP. The Grave Shackles voodoo doll skill is now functional within PvP. The Taunt sword skill will now apply a decrease in accuracy to players in PvP. The Throw Dirt dagger skill and Smoke Bomb grenades will now properly blind players when used. You can even blind yourself with the grenades if you aren't careful! You can now challenge people to PvP on their player cards even if they aren't in the same area as you. This will work cross-island, but not cross-server.



    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. New coats matching Garcia de la Avaricia and Pierre le Porc are now available at their respective island vendors. Two new eye tattoos are available are Land Infamy rank 4, one on each SvS island. Tattoos: Every island now has a unique catalog. The previous catalog had all the same tattoos on every island. New "Full Chest" versions of some classic tattoos are now available on Padres del Fuego alongside a new Koi Fish arm tattoo. New intricate designs can be found on Tortuga. New tribal-style tattoos can be found on Cuba. The old tattoo selections have been split up between shops on Port Royal and Padres del Fuego. All vendors now have a "sell" button within the shop view. Now you won't have to visit a Peddler every time you want to sell something! New inventory icons have been added for the following items: 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.



    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! 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. For example, 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! 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.

    Could I somehow get a close up of the Kittens tattoo? It's hard to see on the preview.
