    Liebes Ubi-soft Team, musste soeben mit Erschrecken feststellen, dass meine Dampfwägen komplett aus dem Kontor verschwunden sind.

    In der Speicherstadt der gleichen Insel werden sie noch mit 1400 angezeigt??? Hatte mich zuvor gewundert, warum die Investoren unzufrieden sind und den leeren Balken im Investoreninterface und Kontor bei den Dampfwägen bestaunt. Als ich dann auf der Handelsroute nachsah, fand ich es merkwürdig, dass das zugehörige Schiff mit Dampfwägen voll beladen war, diese aber im Kontor der besagten Insel nicht entleerte, die hatte nämlich auf einmal wieder 1400 Dampfwägen. Dieses Spielchen ging dann noch einmal hin und her, bis ich nun frustriert euch um Hilfe bitte!!!

    I would’ve also loved an Asia DLC, but I am also looking forward to a new game – just hoping for no Science Fiction setting again.
    In my opinion, the 18th century was perfect for an Anno game, as it went through the industrialization – changing production lines and lives significantly. With the love of developers and community, Anno 1800 was the best Anno game for me so far.

    I hope the next game continues with the 20s century – introducing computers, airplanes, televisions, plastics, more chemicals,… and maybe even a moon mission scenario.

    Can someone tell me about the locked company logos, and how to unlock them?

    • R Raven14gl January 24, 2023

      Tu débloques les logos d’entreprise quand tu obtiens certain succès

      • D DavidWAnno January 26, 2023

        They have now disappeared from game, was that another bug?

    В эмбесах на ламповой фабрике так и не исправили ошибку, вместо свеч на производстве требует обычнае электрические лампочки. Что за бред!!!!!! Я писал за эту ошибку но так ник то и не ответил обидно. Игру купил и за что деньги отдал????? А игру так починить и не могут. Бестолочи!(((((

      Проверь, нет ли у тебя рядом с ламповой фабрикой профсоюза с Энбесским епископом. У него именно тот эффект, что ты описал.

    A bigger problem is that this update still doesn’t seem to include a fix to the AI warships targeting things they shouldn’t. Your markets and such you can always rebuild, but they can also destroy Archibald’s harbour, or even worse, the Angereb harbour. The latter can happen without you knowing, before you’ve even unlocked Enbesa. It would potentially lead to tens of hours of gameplay lost. For this reason, I think I’ll still wait for the Game Update 16.2 until I continue playing and start a new game.

    The music stopping is a known bug.. Wish they would just fix it…. but a quick fix after the small patch in dec — the switch to a different map ( old world – new world) if the music start’s playing it that map it will reboot in other map… if it don’t just save and exit and boot up again… And yes it even happens in other map areas . Wish they fix it — it just breaks the mood of the game — even killer when it happen when your at war with AI

    I am also having bugs with the regular music in the Old World. Only the incident music plays when there are fires from what I’ve been hearing so far.

  10. C Coouge January 19, 2023

    I think the fix for the music stops playing while in the Old World is not included in this update?
    When you’re in the Old World, the music plays and then after several minutes of playing, it stops.
