Piracy

How can I make my fleets act as Pirates?

There is no 'piracy' order as such in Austerlitz. If your fleet consists solely of warships and meets a ship of nation to which you have a neutral relationship towards, then they'll become privateers, hoist the jolly roger, and attack! There aren't any shades of neutral in the game, so if your good and noble captains come across a ship of a country that your majesty is frowning upon, then they decide to do a little frowning themselves - with cannon balls...

Your pirate fleets must consist solely of warships, however, which means that all you have to do to avoid catastrophic losses when moving a warfleet and possibly engaging a larger foe is to include a merchantmen.
