In Sid Meier's Pirates (on the Wii in my case), when sailing there is a minimap with various symbols and numbers next to it. The manual that comes with the game makes no mention of what these symbols/numbers mean. I figured out most of them, but am still unsure what the number next to the skull and crossbones icon actually means. Any ideas?
I've played only the PC version, but I would guess, as an analogy to the PC version, that it details your fame, which is like a points system that ranks the pirates on a scale of pirate bad-assary.
And the following are number of crew members, remaining food supply and how happy your crew is.
Here you can see a comparison between the PC and Wii versions:
