Resource producingEdit

Where you first start getting resources from.

Gold MineEdit

You will find several Gold Ores in your Haven at the beginning of the game. This is where you will be extracting Gold (one of the three main Resources ). You need Gold to fund the construction of buildings, research Discoveries , and to purchase new Units . To begin mining Gold, build a Gold Mine on the Gold Ore. The number of Gold Ores is random for each Haven, so you may have to trade to meet your needs.

Build Gold Mines on veins of Gold Ore to start refining the Gold you'll need to fund this little venture. Upgrading them increases your rate of Gold production. You can build a maximum of 4 or 5 Gold Mines.

To build a Gold Mine:

  1. Go to your Haven.
  2. Click «Construction».
  3. Open the «Resource» tab and select Gold Mine.
  4. Place the Gold Mine over a Gold Ore (Your building marker will turn green once placed over the appropriate Resource Field.) and start building.

Build the Goldsmith to further increase Gold production.

Lumber YardEdit

You will find several Stacks o' Lumber in your Haven at the beginning of the game. This is where you will collect Lumber (one of the three main Resources ). You'll need Lumber to construct buildings, research Discoveries , and purchase new Units . To begin producing Lumber, build a Lumber Yard on a Stack o' Lumber. The number of Stacks o' Lumber is random for each Haven, so you may have to trade to meet your needs.

Lumber Yards are places where Lumber is produced. Upgrading them increases your rate of Lumber production. You can build up to 4 or 5 Lumber Yards, and you can increase your rate of Lumber collection by upgrading them. (Max level 20)

To build a Lumber Yard:

  1. Go to your Haven.
  2. Click «Construction».
  3. Open the «Resource» tab and select Lumber Yard.
  4. Place the Lumber Yard over a Stack o'Lumber (the undeveloped areas inside your Haven at the beginning of the game - your building marker will turn green once placed over the appropriate Resource Field) and start building.

Build the Sawmill to further increase Lumber production.

Hint: Upgrading 1xWood and 1xGold from 9 to 10 (13k resources each) pays off only after about 4 weeks due to the only +20 increase in production! That pay off time multiplies by 1.67 per level! Don't bother upgrading further. This hasn't taken into account the royal cannon and the sawmill combined will increase your production by 50%. This means the payoff amount may actually be quicker than noted.

Hint: Time is without the bonus given by the Captain's Quarters.

Rum DistilleryEdit

You will need Rum to keep up your crew's spirits and belay talk of mutiny! The more Rum Distilleries you build and upgrade, the more Rum you can make. Without Rum, you'll be sailing your ship by yourself. You can build up to 6 Rum Distilleries. Each Rum Distillery produces a certain quantity of Rum per hour, depending on its upgrade Level. You can upgrade each Rum Distillery up to a maximum of level 20.

To build a Rum Distillery:

  1. Go to your Haven.
  2. Click «Construction».
  3. Open the «Resource» tab and select the Rum Distillery.
  4. Choose a place inside the Haven and start construction.

Build the Windmill to further increase Rum production.
