Many thanks Cete, I'll take a look and see if I can make sense of it there.
All the best!

The optimum is actually a bit different from town to town. The best pricing is to use the market hall, and check the consumption and production figures. If you maintain the supply in the marketplace at a level equal to a few day's consumption, the people remain happy. This is important as the town grows, to keep your employment and morale at maximum. While your manager sells once a day, the captains do so twice a day; a stationary convoy can supply certain goods steadily. Some production goods are bulky enough that it actually pays later on to simply dump them into the marketplace at a loss, and make it up on the smaller high profit items.

Thanks Baltic Trader, yes I have been using this method since reading Bizpros post yesterday, and it makes the whole pricing issue make sense.
Keeping the people happy is a constant battle, but I'm getting there.
Thank you

Hello Jasminew!

First of all, gather the ships together in a port.
One of them has to become the convoy's leader - the oorlog ship (warship).
It must comply these minimum requirements:
  • a captain
  • at least twenty sailors
  • ship's condition at least at 50%
  • weapons at least at two red ball's value (you do know how to equip weapons, don't you?):



Secondly, you have to establish convoy, by clicking on this icon on the far right of your monitor (becoming orlogship must be in charge)


Any further ships can join by respectively repeating second step.

You're welcome!
