    Some suggestions, I already told some of them in game, but here goes again:

    -Display the text message telling to use ILKJ instead of mouse only to the player trying to use the mouse
    -This map could use some music, with the file size being only 150kb, there's plenty of room. Nicely compressed tune looping adds maybe 200-400kb only.
    -Camping is pretty lame imo. Maybe make it so that you get send back when you hit a wall?
    -Powerups! You walk over them and get some sort of bonus. Usable by the land huggers only, you could make some special ones for the pirates too. Example for the land huggers:
    Speed bonus (must have :)),
    Disguise (turns the land hugger into a pirate for short amount of time, but he isnt really caught, if the land hugger runs into a pirate while in disguise he gets caught),
    Slow speed (negative powerup, slows you down),
    Shield (you cant get caught for short amount of time),
    Invisibility (you turn invisible, you can still get caught if you run into a pirate)
    And so on....

    Yeah, those power ups or runes as they will probably be will be in the next version, I think I will add 4 different or something like that.

    Thanks for the suggestions and yes I will try to do something to prevent camping, perhaps make regions at the very end so if you walk out there a sea monster comes and attacks you :p

    I don't know many pirate like tunes so if you know anywhere where there is a semi short tune then do link me to it!

    The Pirate tag is a little fun tag ofc, but yea needs a bit improvement.
    Heres some suggests:

    -Pirate ship sailing around the island (i know sailing whas ur idea) and maybe make it shoot some kind of bombs thats pushing people, so if unlucky u get pushd to a pirate, maybe if u want and can make.

    Thats all suggests for now.

    Thanks for the idea, that bomb shooting thing would be cool, perhaps instead of pushing people it would stun them though.

    +rep! Thanks for the feedback :D

    O ye, display who caught who. Now it says "Mr.X was caught by pirates", say who was the pirate who caught him.

    Perhaps a few powerups that randomly spawn around the map?

    You must put a pirate song there and a few pirate "Yaarrgh!" yells or something.

    - Sort leaderboard each round
    - Possibly add a Zoomout command
    - When Pirate first Spawns at startup, give him a temporary movement speed bonus as hes all alone.

    Maybe there could be a net trap pirates can do?

    A net trap would be unfair imo. But a speed increase could easily be done, thanks for the suggestion. I don't like the zooming out thing, I think the camera view should be sort of limited, if you want more overview you can always just take the locked camera off.

    Random powerups will appear as runes which will give temporary boosts of different kinds.

    What do you mean with the sorting of the leaderboard, Fulla? What is there to sort?

    And a song/tune of some kind will come in the near future Jaakko, I just need to find a really good tune that doesn't get annoying in the long run, which is kind of hard, but if you have any suggestions then feel free to post them.

    Thanks for the feedback, +rep!

    Like Say:
    Ppl1 - 0
    Ppl2 - 2
    Ppl3 - 0
    Ppl4 - 1
    Ppl5 - 0

    becomes:
    Ppl2 - 2
    Ppl4 - 1
    Ppl1 - 0
    Ppl3 - 0
    Ppl5 - 0

    Theres a GUI trigger, Sort Leaderboard by XXX
    XXX can be, lots of things, in this case whatever ure using as the score.

    This was easier to see whos winning and who we have to gangup on Yarr!!!

    Yeah, well, I guess that could be done but I just prefer to have it like p1-p2-p3-p4 etc. so it is sorted that way as people often have the same score anyways.
