I have the habit to build some small cities/islands that are self sufficient. It started in Anno 1503, so I already forgot why I started with it, but I like the challenge.
The island will have no trade routes, no imported workforce, a positive balance and as many needs provided as possible. Sometimes I also try with a positive influence balance, if possible.
The first one is my artisan small city:
Then we go to the New World:
I really had a lack of space, but it's part of the challenge.
Off course in Enbesa I did the same with Little Clarence:
The biggest challenge was a small island in the arctic, getting that one in the positive was difficult or near impossible without items:
I also have one with engineers, this one was also difficult to get in the positive, the maintenance of the sky scrapers is insane:
An finally my favorite with investors, positive balance, skyscrapers 6 needs and 5 luxury needs provided. Half of it with items (even the oil):
I put a lot of pride into it, because it was really difficult to provide 11 needs, positive balance of income and influence. And operating without workforce.
I hope some people do the challenge, new inspiration is always welcome. Or do people have other ideas with the small islands?
Some people think this is crazy, but wait until they see my self sufficient large island that operates with no workforce and has almost 25 000 investors living into it.
@legeektateur Thanks for the help, but it seems that the pictures are in the jpg format. I just checked.
I have still no idea how to put pictures up in this forum, all the searching I did, where result from the old forum.
Just how to do it?
In the past, you could click on the image icon and paste the embedded link into it. But now it can only upload a picture from my computer.
Off course, I tried it. But it gives an error (to big).

As You can see their are no quests related to the High Life, I can continue playing like normal, but the quests with asking stuff that I saw in the Twitch stream are missing. (Their are two lines of quests that I saw. I hope that they return when I start to build the new monument.)
This is the link, if the embed picture isn't working.
I've started to play with the quest line for the skyscrapers. But when I removed the last engineer skyscraper all quests disappeared.
In the Department Store the unlock conditions are 15 level 3 skyscrapers for the next supply. I've got over twenty, but the count is still zero.
Does the game not know how to handle of building more skyscrapers on more islands?
