Planned features

These are features announced on the product page[2]:

  • Use covert diplomatic action to create trade conflicts: Bring out your negotiating skills and explore new diplomatic ways to justify and force trade conflicts against your competition.
  • Steal from your competitors with the use of privateers: Dare to hire privateers that will steal trade from your competitors by leeching trade into a pirate nation. But if you do, know that this will give your competitors just cause for war.
  • Create a new trade capital and strengthen your trade: Designate a specific port as your main trade capital, separate from your country’s capital, in a coastal province within the same continent.
  • Improved trading in inland nodes: Merchants placed in inland trade nodes receive increased bonuses proportional to your country’s trade efficiency and will increase your ability to trade in far-away inland trade nodes.
  • Establish East India Companies: Strengthen your trade network and reach far-away lands by establishing East India Companies.
  • Allow Players to build canals at Panama, Kiel and Suez. These will be expensive undertakings which once completed will be visible on the map. Canals will allow movement of ships through them, they can be blockaded and will also contribute significantly to trade power in the region.
