Is this another grind?
I don't really notice it since everything is skill based therefore all experience is earned through your actions. It is similar to UO's skill system in a way.

Wait there are only 1000 slots? How do I sign up for a closed alpha account?
"Closed" alpha started on December 8th, but they have been pretty lax about letting new people in.
[as stated on http://startgame.voyagecenturyonline.com]
Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org asking for an account.
They should reply with your Game ID and Password fairly quickly.
Note: I don't know how long they will keep giving accounts away so apply quickly.
Where can I download the client (~1.7G?
MOST ASKED QUESTION: WHAT DO I PUT IN THE EMAIL FOR AN ACCOUNT?!
--Subject:"VCO Alpha Account Request"
--Message:"May I please get a Game ID and Password if there is still room in the alpha? Thanks."
Where do each of the characters start?
-The left two (Male/Female) start in Athens.
-The right two (Male/Female) start in Alexandria.
What's the difference between Athens and Alexandria?
-Nothing except starting town and appearance.
-Athens is closer to more cities, but also to pirates.
-Alexandria is more isolated, but safer from pirates.
-You can still group with one another.
THE MAJORITY OF THE GOON FORCE IS NEAR ATHENS
Everything is running absurdly fast! I am on a dual core PC, what do I do?
-Shingin had this problem and fixed it by turning off one of his cores for the game.
This control interface is weird. How do I change it?
-Open up the System Menu (CTRL+Q)
-Set the options like so:
Now you have it so left click is movement/selection while right click controls camera movement.
How do I change the game resolution?
-Go to your <install directory>/voyage
-Open Core.ini and edit it.
-full_screen = 0 (Toggles full screen/windowed)
-screen_x = 1280
-screen_y = 1024
-; options are commented out so ignore them.
I get this weird empty dialog box after completing the tutorial and landing in town. What do I do?
-This is a known bug so just relog and it should go away.
I finished the tutorial, but I'm still lost. HELP!
-Make sure you finish choosing a guild and to RECONSTRUCT YOUR SHIP FITTING THE NEEDS OF YOUR CHARACTER (DOUBLE CLICK THE ICON TO SELECT IT - DON'T JUST CHOOSE THE TA. Don't reconstruct to a warship when you are going the Merchant route
-After doing that, speak to your respective guild leader and complete some quests/tasks for some starting experience and coin.
I hate clicking every time to fire. Is it possible to automatically fire?
-Yes. Go to your Instruction menu (CTRL+A), go to the At Sea tab, right click Automatic Firing to toggle it.
Character list (I add people who I come in contact with):
Voyage Century is the first 3D nautical online game
is the first 3D nautical online game in MMORPG history. In the game, every featured player is the captain of his or her own battleship, they can sail it around ...
I got introduced by my friend when I was playing other mmorpg.Saw the game site quite a long time ago when it was still in the development phase. My other friend sort of introduced the open beta of this game in chinese to me before but I never played it.
At first, I thought the 1k account had been given away because I started one day late. But after around 30 mins of waiting, I actually got my account after a couple of F5 -refresh- spams! (I was downloading the client with my slow adsl.. bad isp >.>). Got the game at roughly 11 pm and the installation took a while so I went to bed.
Started as a Newbie in Alexander
I didn't have any experience in playing voyage type of games (Pirates!) and I thought it was very complicated to learn.. At first, I attacked some trading ship and they keep on running away lol (Geez.. maybe that's the reason why my crepe is negatively high) then I was very low in money...
Spent a few hours killing hedgehog and stuff (I thought it was the normal hack and slash game like any grinding game, now I regretted for spending those time killing them) and used gun (because it seems cooler).
Made my first ship and my boyfriend found out about the Battle quest so I accepted them but eventually gave up because I am really... a real newbie but I did accepted some of the quests. (I was really silly in the first place because I keep on sailing up and down just to abort the quest because I can't finish it and wanted to accept new ones)
But, I did some adventurer quests on battle ship and actually got into the Hero rank before I become a real merchant o.o
Mining and Timbering
After a while (many hours later), I LEARNT how to mine and timber so I started chopping trees and mining ores but didn't know it can be processed into timber level one and also pig iron so I SOLD it to the npc because I was overweight with the items! (whee, I'm so smart!). Luckily, my boyfriend taught me about smelting and processing those ores and logs o.o.. After I've learnt how to mine and timber (etc etc), I built my first merchant ship in Alexander.
At first, I thought I need to reconstruct my battleship into merchant ship which is waste... since I got a couple of level ups in my battle ship. But in the end, I found out you can buy those level one ships, use it and reconstruct it into Merchant ship! without having to modify your previous ship... which is a good thing and created another Adventurer ship later...
Accepted a couple of tasks in all the cities when I was using the level one merchant ship, made a couple hundred ks (I accepted the level 1 purchase quests because you don't have to ship too many stuff) and my structure actually got up to level 10 so I rebuilt it into level 2 merchant ship! (Thanks to my boyfriend!! again since he mined and timbered for me lalala.. lol) I actually found out ore discovery skills are much important than the increase capacity skill since increasing capacity is useless when you can shift your items into your ships and you will stop mining/timbering when your sp is finished.
After I've reached my target (1 million gold), I've decided to become an Adventurer to explore the cities before the alpha ends.
What I really really like about adventurer is the sailing speed, it's amazing! (imagine sailing at the speed of 4 everytime you're doing the merchant quest.. you will appreciate adventurer's ship even if it's only a level one ship) I travelled for many hours.. from my home town (I shifted from Alexander to Genoa for level 2 ship building purpose),
After I've had enough travelling to the upper part of the map, hamburg (The furthest I went to) I've decided to travel to Asia cities! (Maybe visit my country, Malaysia?) so I travelled to the lower part of the map o.o.. I was amazed when I saw the border (I thought I had travelled a lot but it seems that the first part of the map was just a small part of the game.. which amazes me a lot! ).
Then, I tried stopping at every cities that I've seen in the game (Although I might missed some cities but that gives me the chance to explore more during the closed/open betas ^^). The furthest place that I've been to is Seoul (That was because it was 4.30 a.m. in the morning and I need my sleep lol..).
During the explorance, I found out that it's amazing that every cities in the game has npcs in different outfit o.o..
When I reached:-
Melacca, the npcs were wearing sarong (Traditional malay clothes) and it sorts of remind me of what my history teacher had taught us in the lesson about Melacca (malacca?) when it was one of the famous trading port..
Japan, I saw samurai! well, not really but they were some npcs called shinobi or something in the castle place.. and some guards with their katanas >.<!! The edo eras ~
China, I saw a money lender with two guards protecting him. I tried talking to one of the little kids and he/she said I looked like from some other places...~
Seoul, it reminds me of dae jonggum (A korean drama) because of the outfits and they were selling Korea Ginseng too o.o! It was fun that every cities' npcs' names are really the type of names used in those cities ; not just your random npc nicks.
That ends my story/review (?) I really like this game a lot ^^ ~
This is Voyage Century Online

Just wondering why this game "Voyage Century Online" is almost identical , both menu and gameplay and graphics wise, to the game "Bounty bay"....... Even the websites are using the same header images, and pictures. Im almost positive its the same game.
If you dont believe me, check out both of the game websites and screenshots.
Theyre both on the list of free MMORPGs...
They both use the same GUI (interface) just in different sizes, and the main menu screens are identical. furthermore the characters, ships, and worlds also look extremely alike.
