Yohoho Puzzle Pirates Pillage Program (YPPPP) is a program made by darhand to aid pirates while pillaging. It features a damage counter for which the values of the ships can be changed or new ships (or monsters) can be added. YPPPP is written in C# and runs on every operating system that supports C# (the program is tested on Linux and Windows). The creator is now working on adding a list that keeps track of the pirates on board.

YPPPP can be downloaded at http://www.unreadable.nl/ypp.php

YPPPP with Gtk# interface on Ubuntu Linux


While pillaging there is a lot of information that needs to be registered. QuarterMaster Pirate Helper keeps track of a lot of data, but runs only on systems with Windows. This program was inspired by Sea Battle Damage Counter, which runs on all operating systems. However this damage counter is missing the newest ships and the source code was never released. YPPPP's source code is released under GPLv3 and runs on all operating systems that support C#. The data for the ships is easy to change without editing the source code. All the data in the program is based on the pages from Ships, however users are free to edit it if they disagree with the ship values.


The installation instruction for Windows, Linux and OS X can be found here: http://www.unreadable.nl/ypp.php Other operating systems need to install their systems implementation of C# and compile the program with their preferred interface(Gtk# or Windows Forms)
