Order of events: Ubisoft email announcing the new DLC Seed of Change. I viewed the video and followed a link to a pod-cast describing it's content. When next logging in to an on-going game I first received a download of some 2.6Gb update. (Saturday 23rd April) While playing the game I noticed the additions in the Warehouse Menu of Dung/Hot Sauce and Fertilizer. OK - I believed these changes must have taken place with the new update in readiness for using the Seed of Change DLC Fair enough and no problem. However when continuing with my game started before the above events I read and heard notifications of Schnapps running out from the New World. This product not in use in the earlier game I was playing and I do not have the Seed of Change DLC. While looking at an Island in the New World owned by Princess Ying (AI) I observed and heard a cracking noise and a fissure appear in the islands surface and some of the dwellings crumbling - this I believe to be an earthquake. The game I play is Custom and at the easiest level and I've never seen this action before but I expect it may be a feature in more advanced levels. Is this perhaps a 'bug' of some sort created by the update? I advise of the above out of interest and must add it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the game. Once I gain a little more confidence I expect I'll purchase the DLC to stretch me further. Thank you. Yorky65.
I am an octogenarian and relatively new to ANNO 1800. I find it a wonderful game and it provides my memory with a real work-out. However as one advances in the game I become a little overwhelmed by dealing with a number of islands in both the Old & New World. I would find it useful if one could pause activity in one world while working in the other. I hope I've explained myself but I need to spend time setting up an island and when I return to the other world (whichever that may be) I find I have difficulty catching up with events. In addition if you employ a DLC in the game that can really be too much to handle for some of us oldies at any rate. Perhaps your developers might consider this. Thank you. Yorky 65
Hello, I'm aware that you can increase the size of farm fields by holding shift however in the actual game is the yield of produce actually increased or is it just a visual effect? I am a single player on PC only and sometimes I examine the layouts of the islands created by the AI and observe they can have some fields in their restricted mode which causes me to ask the above question. Thanks for any information supplied. Yorky 65
After visiting either of the above and only viewing 'Items Tab' & rolling dice to see what was available and NOT selecting or making a purchase I found my capital much decreased. Thinking this may be a mistake on my part I tried again but this time I saved the game before visiting the above named and sure enough monies were taken by just viewing and rolling dice. I then re-loaded game to recover my money. I believe this may be a 'bug' of some sort ot perhaps am I doing something wrong. Thank you, Yorky65.
Hello everyone, this is not a question or a complaint. in fact it's the reverse. I am an Octogenarian and only came to ANNO 1800 a year ago after the demise of my wife. ANNO 1800 has been a savior to me, particularly on dark nights and poor weather when it was unsuitable for me to go out. It has kept me company and provided mental exercise and very interesting and adsorbing pastime. I have just recently managed to reach Investor level while at the same time still having adequate stocks and cash. (No easy matter) I would like to thank all involved in it's production. It does remind slightly of the much earlier game EMPEROR and I only wish they would bring that up to date. I also have ANNO 2205 but I just can't make any headway and for me the period is unattractive. Hopefully there will be further DLM's for ANNO 1800. By the way I only play off-line; and certainly don't have the confidence to do otherwise. Many thanks. Yorky65
I'm quite new to ANNO 1800 and find it fascinating. I only play single player on my PC and offline. At times my opponents can offer a cease fire or declare peace for a payment fee. In addition they can request my help when involved in a War. How can I make these same offers to them. I have been unable to discover any way to make various offers to them that are made to me by AI. Thank you in anticipation of reply. Yorky65
