    I wonder if the Anno dev team learn the real history books of 1900 era or is it based on their own cultural history beliefs! I fail to see the truth in Anno 1800 era title game anymore it seems we're now moving into 1950\60\70 on what they change to justify their means what the game title should look like. But I 'm looking forward to play New World Rising wish they just kept the game at it's title or future titles.

    The early fuel scooters know as Autoped hit shops in 1915 New York the New York Post office signed a contract with company provide their postman the easy way of delivering mail also the police officers use them to patrols, and traffic lights were still fifteen years away the lack of proper seat meant many upper class people decided to invest their money in other means of transport during the fuel rationing WWI US production ceased in 1919 then company failed to hit sales. But Autoped made it mark in history for the modern design Electric scooters today,




    The ABC British motorcycle made it version in 1919 with a seat only to be used with upper class and around military bases



    The only Electric powered by bikes built in 1886 London and Libbey of Boston in 1885



    The DLC New world rising showing a look a like Electric Lambretta model below but there is no model like that in Electric 1900's history that I have found! So I fail to see the use of this model in 1900 era of Anno 1800 what's next Disney world!







  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Yes, I do wonder of that, and felt it's not match to 1800, but rather match 1900, if so, I would love to had aircraft carrier and Aircraft of war/transport, but sady 2070 and 2205 is limited of "aircraft", no aircraft flying island to island or to space, more or less. Aircraft Carrier/Aircraft is most importance in 1900, it's change war and transport due air power, Ah well.
    I know we had airship, but it's felt match in 1800 but airship is not same as aircraft, more or less.

    The Anno dev team needs to learn the world history not tell us it's within the 1800 era the empire state building renamed in Anno tower Skyscrapers was built in 1931, and the skyscrapers for people was only 20 floors high they start in 1880's and empire of the skies is more like steampunk game the first airship was built in 1908 civilian use only and the bombing airship was built in 1914 for WWI Anno 1800 is just a fantasy game now copied ideals from other games and Nexus mods. Shame😐

    The new world is limited but we have no docklands building just ugly storage buildings🙁 how can this fit in the New World Rising title?

    There is an answer why! The early 1900s have to be in Anno 1800 because one for the 20th century could not be properly titled.The titles of all the Anno games always sum to 9. 1602, 1503, 1701, 1404, 2070, 1800. The sum of 9 is sometimes hidden within the games as well. Check your dockland unlock conditions for higher products. They all add up to 9. It's a crazy answer to the question of why but that's it!

    Heyho!
    Throughout the game, from farmers to investors, we're slowly progressing through the 19th century and ultimately entering the early 20th century, with certain innovations (e.g. machines, airships) and architectural achievements (e.g. skyscrapers) - we are not limiting us to e.g. everything up to 1870 or something. The small step into the early 19th century is intentional.
    Additionally - and even more importantly: Anno games do take inspiration by real history, but are by no means aspiring to be historically accurate. The Anno world is its own thing, with its own characters, timelines and rules.

    Of course it's fair to not like our approach, but comparisons with our real world history are only partially useful when Anno is set in its own world.

    This game isn't early 20th century only 19th century industrial age, and if you stated it was set in an Anno own world on your own beliefs! Then you have said it first when you marketed it back in 2019😬 yes it a very nice building game and we had three years together but imo your just pushing it in another century history maybe the title should have said Anno 19th - 20th century!

    And if this is early 20th where is the motor cars? I'm not taking about the steam carriages. And the penny farthing bike came out in 1870s and ended in 1880
