Yeah I feel kind of stupid now, I am teched up to technician level now and managed to get a few choppers up and flying, but I still don't find any option to build my own ships. Am I doing something wrong? I'm playing continuous mode with Eco if it matters.
You need to build a shipyard. It's only in the second tech level of the Eco/Tycoon stuff, IIRC. Has an anchor on its icon, at least for the Ecos.
The sole purpose of this Sig is to taunt Orcus.
Ah thanks, I kept looking at the harbor section in the tier one list and couldn't find it.
Yeah, building new ships is pretty high-tier, which makes sense since you're producing EVERYTHING that goes into it on your own little island. Takes a lot of infrastructure to turn a pile of ore into a battleship. I can see why you'd assume it be more basic though; it usually is. What kind of RTS game doesn't let you build new units right off the bat, right? This kind! :D
Capslock is cruise control for cool.
