Convoys?

#1wickdawg01Posted 11/13/2012 10:33:07 AM
When exactly in the game do you get to use convoys to make money? Just curious if its one of those things you can miss or not. I'm to mission 6 right now and am wanting to make some money to upgrade my ship.

Any help is appreciated!

I used convoys to make money, I had fully upgraded the Aquila and bought all weapons and maps before sequence 9.

From sequence 06 I think you can already sell pelts.

Get the lumberers, I think those are by deffault.
Get myriam, she is hunter/gatherer.
Get the woodworker, build 2 more land convoys and built all the upgrades.
Destroy both forts in Boston.

Every time you pass by homestead or any general store (there are 9 in game, look for the locations here
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ene4VfgEhN8) go to the catalog and buy EVERY pelts, then

sell 24 pelts (3 convoys of 8 goods) to the first guy in boston.

Basically just do X, down, X, X, right, X, down, X, X... then triangle to send, repeat, takes about 1 minute, make 10,000 pounds every time.
