Get ready to dive into the open water as you can now build harbor buildings in the vast ocean. And to make things even more convenient, a new quay street has been introduced to connect these buildings with the land and each other. No need to worry about navigation anymore, as trade routes can now be grouped, providing a better overview of your trading empire.
But it’s not just about functionality, it’s about aesthetics too. The new placement system allows for a more comfortable arrangement of decorative elements like hedges. And speaking of comfort, you’ll now receive a message when your ships are arriving at their final destination. No more waiting in suspense!
And that’s not all, folks! We’ve added a handy shortcut that allows you to quickly fill up all slots of a new trade route with the same good. Plus, a “Jump To” button has been added to event notifications, making it easier than ever to navigate to the exciting conclusion of events like the World Fair or a research project.
Ship navigation has also been improved with the addition of buoys marking each checkpoint of a ship’s route. And for those bonus goods enthusiasts, the infotip now displays precise cycle-times for bonus goods, so you’ll never miss out on those valuable rewards.
And last but not least, the defined “good” of an advanced pier is now displayed in the list of the Statistic Menu, giving you a comprehensive overview of your goods.
So get ready to sail the open seas, manage your trade routes with ease, and enjoy the improved aesthetics and functionality of the game. Don’t forget to check out the regular attractivity value added to all objects of Cosmetic DLCs. Happy gaming!
