((Gallery of all ships, with links to respective articles and brief descriptions in alt))
Pirate Wars is heavily based on naval combat, and so ships are a very important part of the game. Ships can be spawned by walking over their respective spawning button, which can only be activated when the following are true:
1.) The player has enough money to spawn the ship
2.) The captain's seat of the last spawned ship of its kind has been sat in OR the last spawned ship of its kind was destroyed (this second method takes a while to restore spawning ability, though) ((this requirement might only be used for Small Boats, though. More testing needed))
If the player doesn't have enough money, a notification will appear telling them so. If the ship cannot be spawned for the other reasons, then nothing will happen.
