A cutter is a type of ship.
In addition to the basic cutter, two other classes of cutter exist:
- Harvest class cutter - Limited edition; available during November 2011
- Verdant class cutter - Limited edition; available during May 2010
Rooms and furnishings
Total paint required for a cutter: 154 units
Older models (exact date unknown but some time before January 19, 2006) of the cutter have a fully-functional drinking game aboard. The game is located in the main hold, and is in the shape of a barrel. The barrel cannot be moved or destroyed.
The cargo hatch at the aft of the boat was not present until February 2004, and did not function until two subsequent patches.
When a pirate working the gunning stations could chose to work on two, four, or six guns at a time, the cutter only had six guns to load. When the guns were fixed to four-gun boards as part of Beta release 2003-11-22, the cutter was given two extra guns, bringing her armament up to eight cannons. However, no additional duty stations were added. (This was not necessary as it was not possible to fill the gunning stations before all the guns are allocated.) As a result, to this day a cutter captain has eight guns at his disposal but only six on deck. Beware the phantom guns.
During much of beta, a cutter could be soloed quite easily, as one swabbie was sufficient for carpentry and no water leaked into the bilge unless the vessel was damaged. Adjustments to these mechanics subsequently made it more challenging, until release 2010-06-29, when the number of swabbies on a cutter was raised to four, again making it much easier to solo.
As of release 2007-05-24, the hold size of cutters was increased from a mass of 27,000 kilograms and a volume of 40,500 liters, making it an even better trading ship.
