This version of the game was really like the computer version. You could not customize your vessels, however, you could design your own "face" for your sails. You could also change your flag, but not to all the other flags. The only flags you could change to was:
English Cross Flag
French Crown Flag
Included from the PC version Edit
Like the PC version (Sid Meier's Pirates Gold), you can't fully customize your vessels. Like the PC, though, you could choose to sink, keep, or make the captured ship your flagship without losing any bounty. This is a stark difference between the PC, mobile, and Wii versions, in which you had to keep the ship (in either Flagship or Keep) in order to actually earn the credit of getting her. This streamlined the speed of the game.
