    YEY!

    I still play this game for the "upbeat" factor, fantastic music and wonderful art design.

    To the Nth degree. Turns out I had set the tax rate too fuckin' high.

    Don't forget population.

    If you cant get a certain tier of people to move in, thats because the tier below it is under populated. The more peseants you have, the more citizens you can have... and so on. Its a tricky balance that makes you really think when things start to get "big".

    I'm constantly changes my taxes to keep a trickle of people upgrading to the next tier. If you let them all do it at once you dont get as much because the lower tiers are easier to please, therefore upgrade quicker. But less lower tier means less higher tier.... see where I'm going with this? If you need a good breakdown, click on any market place and one of the tabs has upwarding flowing picture that shows how it works.

    Game is simply amazing because of this... simple things that can perform complex tasks. I'm absolutely obsessed with how smooth the trade route stuff works.

    Yeah they already mentioned the multiplayer. But I think TFS thought it was a free add-on. But it is looking like the multiplayer will be part of the expansion.

    naw that's not how steam registration works, you can add any game to steam for purposes of having the steam overlay turned on while playing a game but steam won't actually accept CD Keys from most games so you won't have the steam version of the game that works with the steam version of the expansion.

    Thankfully i didn't buy Venice as I noted the big "you must have the steam version of dawn of discovery for this expansion to work" warning text

    When I look at it, each scenario even in vanilla (e.g. elector, diplomat, guild master) would take me about 8 hours to do, each! Even elector, the easiest took me about 6. The amount of content is staggering, which is why I just keep dipping in & out of this relaxing, slow paced game.

    It's a game that requires you to be in no rush to even have enough patience to play it.

    (I gots the steam version of both)

    I have the retail versions of both and:

    You can play the six vanilla scenarios in both Venice & the original

    You cannot play the campaign in Venice.

    Hence you are only missing the campaign if you run Venice & not the vanilla exe

    What's the difference between this and Anno 1701/ 1701 AD, and the 1600s/1500s ones that I have as well?

    I bought 1701 AD right before I found out about this game on steam, so I'm reluctant to buy it if it's not all that different.

    Welp nevermind the disk is all scratched up so I guess I'll have to get 1404.

    I wish I could find the sheet music for this game. The new "Venice" main theme is especially nice. It's a lovely flowing piece in a spritely compound time.

    6/8 I think.
