    Have you any old potco pics from when you started Playing? If so post them here.
    These are mine, this was waay back when they had the old islands, and the NPC words come up on chat. This was also the time when you had an hour to sail.

    This is what the original Basil Darkratte looked like:

    Nope, my old computer that had potco on it got wiped because of viruses. And there went all my pics. And the pics seem sharper, and the sails on the ship look better. I remember my first time sailing and I couldn't figure out how to 'drop the sails'. This was my very first computer game so I didn't know how to do anything, really. After pressing a bunch of random keys I got my ship to work xD

    It meant that your ship had an hour to sail before it "ran out of resources". It then sank and you could see people swimming in the ocean if their ship sunk.

    additional info: durring the early beta of the game the kraken would take down your ship after the hour was over but was removed further into the beta due to it being unfinished
