Q&A FAQ and general help

I thought we could create a thread where we could discuss this game. I'm about 6 hours in but have restarted 3 times because I just don't get how to build convoys or get them to buy specific items only... Any help?

Dock convoy in the same port as the ships you wish to add to it, then with the convoy selected click on the lighthouse and a menu will come up that lets you add/remove ships from the convoys hope this helps as for the buying specific thing havent seen this yet but havent played the trader campaign in depth yet

I never thought i would say this about ANY game.. as i know male pride normaly forbids the following.. But The Game manuel is actually pretty useful and there are certian things that the game never explains that you can find in this small unassuming booklet..

Yeh the problem I was having was that I tried to add multiple convoys were, supposed to make 1 ship the lead of the convoy then add un-selected ships to it.

As for only buying certain items, you can instruct your Captain to buy certain items whilst creating routes. Unfortunately I haven't found out how to buy 'X' from one port and sell 'Y' at another :S

I think you can do it on a custom route but I am not 100% sure yet myself.
