iloveaoe posted... As much as I like seeing activity on this board, I think that you must be talking about the wrong game, Bubblepowa_x. In the DS version of the game "Anno 1701: Dawn of Discovery", there is no such concept as a "trade route". Items produced on one island automatically become part of the global pool of items available on all islands. I have played this game many times and can definitely verify that, for example, you can produce Tea on island X, and your people living on island Y will consume that Tea, without you having to do anything special.
Ignore that last post... (mistake), hmph. i play the computer version of the game apparently there 2 different things. sorry. on the computer version u DO need a trade route.
