Trade routes

Besides working terrain gifted with rare commodities, or with access to waterways and roads, you can increase trade by establishing trade routes between cities. You accomplish this by producing a caravan or freight, sending them to another city or belonging to a different civilization's city.
The origin civilization of the unit gains immediate revenue in gold and science from selling its trade goods at the destination city. The initial revenue depends on the trade already produced by the two cities involved and their distance apart.
Also, an ongoing trade route is established that benefits both its origin and destination equally by generating trade points for each city every hour. The amount of ongoing trade is based on the sum of trade points from the tiles worked by the two cities with bonuses and without other trade routes and it is doubled if the cities are from different players.
The number of trade routes per city is unlimited but each trade route is active only 48 hours!

Planned features on this week


There are several forms of government with which you can rule your civilization, but none offers complete control. The standard forms of government are: Despotism, Monarchy, Communism, Republic and Democracy.
Under autocratic regimes (Despotism, Monarchy and Communism) your citizens readily support the military, as military units stationed in a city can prevent unhappiness by enforcing order, but reduce your trade income through corruption. When granted representative government (Republic and Democracy) they are efficient and productive, but demonstrate against the use of military force by becoming unhappy, the only effect is negative — citizens become unhappy when their city is supporting military units which have been deployed into an aggressive stance.


Land units are loading into transport vessels, so that could transportable between islands and continents in ships: Trireme, Caravel, Galleon, Frigate, Transport, Submarine and Carrier. This feature needs to the new land generation method which will be create continents and islands on the map.
