A couple of small frustrations in this game I'd wish to get some tips to solve.
Just recently tried this game out for the first time and while it wasn't what I thought it'd be I intend to try it out properly at least. But I have a few issues that I'm hoping is me not getting something obvious or aproaching things differently.
First off, do I need to launch the DLC listing in my library to benfit from whatever upgrades or improvements it brings?
I started out the campaign hoping it'd teach me how to do things, what it tells me is to do things that does not occure. "Never buy unless there's 3 bars" the old man says and no matter where I look how ever long I wait 3 bars never happens. In my couple of hours of playing I've never seen a town with 3 bars worth of stock. So what's up with that?
Half ignoring the old man I bought what I could and set off to Aalborg to sell my salt, found that I could actually buy enough meat to empty my coffers without the stock running dry, about 60 or so units. Heading off to Malmö, as I had been adviced the swedes likes a good salty steak but once again I was decieved because they couldn't stomache more than 10-20 barrels before prices dipped well below comfortable profit margins. Took me visits to 5 cities to rid myself of that goods.
So my 2 first main issues, noone is selling enough stuff and noone is buying enough stuff.
Sudenly the old man comes calling again and has this witty thought to share "I'm sure you've filled your cargo up a couple of times by now, you should buy a new ship"(paraphrased). Hold on there, I've barely ever had my ship half full at any point here, due to the previous 2 issues. While I certainly could afford a new ship I really can't see myself needing one. Do I?
Winter is comming.jpg everyone wants pelts, noone is making pelts, the baltics can muster about 10 of them a week or something, lazy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Am I supposed to just sit in harbout for a month and buy them one at a time as they come in? Same issue with lumber. I kind of feel like I'm wasting time if I'm not sailing somewhere at all times and my first instinct was to have time at 0x whenever I'm not sailing, maybe that's not the way to do things?
Oh well, I appear to have gotten rather long winded here, sorry about that, anyway any advice on how to play this game properly would be apreciated.
