We're off - setting sail for new lands in Anno 1800



The docks and first housing settlement



Homes to the minions - the furthest brick fancy ones have just been upgraded



What you might call the industrial zone - sheep farms for wool and cloth makers, potato fields and distilleries for schnapps

Are there any maps in this series that are real world shapes and locations? That about the only thing that has put me off the games….

I don’t think so - but I think the scale would be far too small for you to recognise anywhere anyway considering it has to be undeveloped open land to start playing on

??? ANYBODY still has NES/SNES 'Video Cartridge Games'? SHOULD this 'inquiry' become 'placed' into "Console Games"?

Potato farm looked a bit griddy and generic so i created a little farm community instead



Towns growing - church and fire station added - only needed fire station once so far  :-[



Sail makers up and ruunning - using excess cotton from sheep farms and prepping for our own sail boats to trade



Speaking of which - this guy buys soap and potatoes for the prison - have a decent trade going with him for spuds



next up is grabbing a few of the empty islands, and starting the wheat and sausage production for the workers - the farmers are happy with fish

Better make that soap the non-slippery kind because in prison you definitely don't want to drop it in the shower.  :notme:  That looks like an interesting little game. I thought it was supposed to be very hard?

I found it hard - but then I'm not great at these kinds of games anyway.

I think I thought the maps were really small too...not an awful lot of wiggle room.

The farming community is established - did the same as the potato fields - instead of looking all square and sim city i built random roads and houses and put the fields around them



From a small industrial/support network.........



To a bigger one....... the piggy industry is established along with bread - bacon sandwiches to be exported soon



So great are my achievements the workers come out for a street party and festival - most of them dont know their houses are on fire by the docks  :Loser:

Nice screenshots, geek:bigthumb:  So why were their houses on fire?

its an in game limiter - theres no official reason given other than houses and businesses too close together - if you hover over a fire station it gives you the fire risk in their patch - the best thing to do is just pop in another fire station

weirdly the last 3 game starts after a save - a fire always breaks out when the game boots up - easily containable

Odd.  ???  Well at least you know it's coming -- not the worst of bugs (if that's what it is).

That’s brilliant - didn’t know the Jedi temple was a thing
