Im sorry if this doesnt belong here, but I dont know where else to ask.
Ive recently been playing multiplayer with a friend, We managed to get one captain each at the start of the game, but after that, there is not a single captain to be found anywhere. Just to check this properly I built an office or sent a ship to every single city on the map to check everything at the same time and there really wasnt any captain anywhere. We play on map with 32 cities (anything above will crash the game for me) and its just the standard map with a few cities added. I have noticed a few more problems like some of loans I give arent being repaid and town hall notices dont work properly. But these things arent that important. But the issue with captains really limits any progress.
So my question is, is there any way to make the captains spawn in the taverns again, or at least how to prevent them from disappearing if I start a new game.
BTW I play version 1.1 from GOG
