    Yeah, you gotta make sure your taxes are set as far to the left as possible, otherwise they won't upgrade.

    Which is a handy thing to remember, because sometimes those bitches start upgrading and eating up your precious glass or tools and the only way I've found to stop them from doing that is to bump up the tax rate.

    If you left click the cool little icons on the pie graphs that pop up when you click on their houses, it will "disable" consumption of that resource until you decide different.


    Of course, if you want to disable EVERYTHING at once, just bump the tax rate I guess? Who knows that shit.

    normally you want to deny people of resources that are in the lower classes when things are starting to tighten up, so you could take away the cider from peasants, spices from citizens, and there linen cloth, and yada yada books from partricians

    Raise taxes to prevent them from being happy enough to move up, or just go in to the market and deny them the option. It's the scroll picture at the top of the window.


    Beautiful game. I love watching the hand maidens stomp around to make the cider, the dolphins swimming in the water, how awesome the waterfalls look, peasants walking to the coast to fish, the voice work is pretty darn good, the music is great.

    But its like serving a steak and lobster dinner on a garbage can lid at this point when far too often I don't know wtf is going on and have nothing to reference for answers.

    edit: And I'm going to cock punch the next jerkoff who says to play the campaign. A campaign is not a replacement for documentation damnit. That would be like MS giving you a copy of that Video Professor guy's Windows video and not having any help files.

    Look, I am pretty sure he's got a valid complaint where with the functions not being adequately laid out or described in detail. When I have to pause the game for 25 minutes to go hunting for an answer to the question "Why are no noblemen appearing in my village" thanks to a change I made 6 hours previously to stopgap my revenue hemorraging that in no way informed me that it would have an impact on my city growth, simply because the answer is stored in EXACTLY one out of the way place on the interface and no where the fuck else, there is a problem.

    Ubistoft really did drop the fucking ball documentation and support wise. I remember something a while back about how they didn't even have it listed among their games somewhere.

    I remember when Civ IV came with a huge manual

    Actually, they number the Anno games so that the total always equals 9 : 1602, 1503, 1701, and 1404

    My bet is on 1305 for the next one

    Naval warfare is pretty cool, and it's also cheaper and more efficient than ground-based combat (if you block an ennemy's harbor with warships, thus preventing him from supplying his main island with vital ressources, the settlement will collapse on its own).

    Apparently the Steam version got a bigass patch today. And by bigass patch, I mean several gigs. I'm suspicious that instead of patching it is just redownloading the whole game again. Anyone try it yet?
