what's the closest new game to Privateer? I'm looking for a trading, battle, etc. kind of game.

Sid Meier's Pirates or the Tradewinds series.

Or you could just hunt down the somewhat new re-released GOLD edition of privateer. (http://privateer.en.softonic.com/) I had some problems with it due to not knowing anthing about the game and playing it cold. I probably also needed a joystick because keyboard and mouse just weren't cutting it.
Also for a non-privateer game thats like Privateer (but without all the religious babble and curses), try Drift: When worlds Collide from Cosmi (http://www.amazon.com/COSMI-Drift-Worlds-Collide-Windows-Pc/dp/B00008HBX7).

On second thought Privateer is based on the Wing Commander universe. Try looking for those games too.

In the game, you will of course begin with a spacecraft and a small sum of Credits. You will be able to trade, pirate, bounty-hunt, explore, and salvage your way to wealth and fame, building on those key elements of the previous games, and with sumptuous graphics only now possible with the performance of today’s machines. Only this time some of the ships out there will be other players like yourself – other members of a secret ‘Elite’ group of space-farers…
