    Can’t use special symbols ie {}[] and so on at Route Names after this update.
    I’d used those symbols to show the direction of the route such as 1->3->2 or 32. cities were renamed accordinly.

    it’s so pity. Is there any reasonable reason to restrict usage of those symbols?

    Bonjour merci pour votre mise a jour qui affecte ma partie a chaque mise a jour d’autre bug sorte

    suite a la mise a jour ou dlc Cosmétique problème de main d’œuvre entre les ingénieurs et les fermiers quand je clic sur l’ile fermier je perd tout les ingénieurs et quand je clic sur l’ile fermier je perd cette main d’œuvre

    Hey Ubisoft! “Plant a Tree” DLC is really a very fair cause and I would very much like to support it, however you guys could have done at least some extra tree styles as just one decor tree is very poor against you against the players. it would cost a lot to make some new styles of decorations.

    • t thekingkupo December 15, 2021

      Its not even showing up on my construction list.

      • B BCessel December 15, 2021

        Even paying? It is a DLC that pays close to the value of another DLC that only changes the colors of the houses and market. I also expected more from this one. But let’s wait then 2022.

    Oh, I’m sorry for the German text. I’m on the English side here, lol.

    Hi, besteht eigentlich immer noch der Bug, dass man keine neuen Aufgaben (Quest) mehr annehmen kann?
    Habe das Spiel zuletzt vor ca. 2 Monaten wieder nach einer langen Pause gespielt.
    Ehrlich gesagt, hat mich dieser Bug sehr überrascht. Ich konnte es nur lösen, indem ich einen neuen Spielstand laden konnte.

    Umso erstaunter war ich, dass dieser Bug mindestets seit dem 16.04.19 bekannt ist.
    Siehe folgenden Link. https://forums-de.ubisoft.com/archive/index.php/t-206414.html
    Vor zwei Monaten konnte das ganze dann auch ohne Probleme ein zweites mal reproduzieren.
    Ich weiß es nicht mehr ganz genau, aber es war meine ich irgendwie so, dass wenn man zu lange keine Bürgeraufgabe angenommen hat oder die dann weggeklickt hat, keine einzige Qust mehr im Speil annehmen konnte.

    Ich werde aber die nächsten Tage endlich mal wieder Anno 1800 zocken und hoffentlich auch öfters länger am Stück. Dann kann ich das ganze auch noch genauer schildern. Sollte der Bug dann aber immer noch bestehen, falle ich ganz ehrlich vom Glauben ab. Jedenfalls kann man sich dann nur mit einem anderem Savegame helfen.

    Hello Ubisoft team. First of all I would like to thank and praise the beautiful work done with ANNO 1800. I am a fan of the series and I have all editions with all expansions. I would like to make a fan request: Would an update be possible to translate the game into Portuguese-Brazil? Even if it’s a paid upgrade, it would be very interesting for us. An idea that I would like to suggest that would turn the game into something very interesting too: As we know, the islands with all the DLC’s take on huge proportions and managing everything becomes a big challenge. It would be great fun if a friend could, by invitation, join our metropolis and participate in the management of the islands, a Cooperative mode. Why the proposal? The multiplayer game just becomes too complex to reach the end, as it is a continuous game and usually takes months to get a sequel with a friend and making the game unfeasible. But if he could join cooperatively whenever available to continue a mission against AI, it would be a lot of fun. I thought about this when playing Farm Together on Steam. Big hug and Merry Christmas! PS: Sorry for the English translated by the Google tool, as I really don’t have that affinity with the language to describe so many dreams to ANNO.

    Thank you so much for continuing support for this fantastic game! You are really doing outstanding job!

    Been playing and enjoying Anno 1800 since its release, I would just like thank the developers for making and improving this game it been a pleasure to play.

    May you all have a great Xmas and prosperous New Year
    Please can we have some dreadnought battleships

    •   Ubi-Thorlof December 13, 2021

      Dear Anno-Santa… I want a dreadnought for Christmas, pretty please 😛

      Thank you for kind words. We’re aware of the wishes for more ship types and will certainly consider that in our Season 4 planning.

  9. B BGiantMountain December 11, 2021

    you are doing a really great job thank you very much for your hard work

  10. K Kochsalz December 11, 2021

    Thanks a lot for the continued support and all the free updates, improvements and fixes. Being able to disable the production info layer is a huge deal for many people. Some of these very specific fixes show that the devs are really looking into reported issues. And I’m sure the upcoming scenarios will be as good as those in 1404.

    Here’s to another year of Anno 1800!

    •   Ubi-Thorlof December 13, 2021

      Thank you! 🙂

      There surely are always more specific things that could be done or added, but especially for the “easy to do” things, we’re happy to include them in our Game Updates.

  11. H Humility925 December 10, 2021

    Thank you for fixing, you guy are doing awesome bug hunter and fixed up! Outstanding!

    Thank you!

  12. F FHackner December 10, 2021

    Okay, thank you so much for the option to disable the production infolayer.

    Now I just want to rebind the number keys to something actually useful to me, like camera positions, instead of ship groups.
