I need to learn how to program. I love puzzle pirates, I want another game like it. The devs have abandoned this, maybe if people made a new version of it that was themed a little different, and only had cosmetics cost real money, we could have a good game.

I miss this game, but there are so many problems that it's unplayable.

Your grammar should at least be as good as mine, take the time to make it decent!

Copying another game will result in you getting into trouble with GH anyway for copyright, devs have abandoned because they can't afford to pay the devs. Even if you did make a new pirate game just like this one, it would mostly like start off with a very low player base or die more rapidly, remember it's 2019 not 2002 things change.

You can't copyright video games ideas. Hell, half of PP puzzles are copies of other games.

e: Both Whirled and Bang Howdy got open sourced after GH decided not maintain them. And now Whirled is available at whirled.club, BH was also a thing for a while but apparently the guy who ran it was a massive hack-fraud so it got shut down eventually.

If you're going to go through the effort of making a new game (and be warned, it's a LOT of work), please change the theme. I would love to see a space-themed puzzle game.

The only thing I miss about the game, other than the hearties, is the headbutting with the Pillage/battlenav AI... I'd sure like to look at that code

Agreed, even though blockading was good back in the old days, 20 frigs a side.
