Anno 1800: Game Update 16

Release Date: December 8th, 3PM UTC+1

  • Support for DLC 12 – New World Rising – and the “Old Town” Pack Cosmetic DLC
  • Lifestyle Needs: We have added additional Lifestyle Needs based on DLC 12 content.
  • Multi-Move Tool: You can now move multiple objects at once by drawing a rectangle with the move tool.
  • Islands: The island pool for the New World has been expanded with new islands and riverless variants of existing islands.
  • Construction Menu: The construction menu has been reworked, with a focus on clearer structure and a dedicated category for ornaments.
  • New items for DLC 12, some with DLC cross-interactions:
    • Constable Chaos (Police Headquarters use Advanced Weapons instead of Police Equipment)
    • Bait Specialist (Arctic Hunting Cabins process beef and produce additional bear fur)
    • Inigo Flores (extra goods from Orchid and Herb Farms)
    • Enbesan Envoy (affects productions in the New World and Enbesa)
    • Maria Maravilla (extra Carriages and Scooters from the Cab Assembly)
    • Pedro, Captain of the “Panama” (extra goods from fisheries)
    • Salvador, the Stalwart (employs Artistas in New World factories for extra goods)
    • Valentina Alvarez (affects cattle farms and sanga farms for bonus milk and herbs)

  • Lifestyle Needs Balancing: We rebalanced and expanded the Lifestyle Needs for all population tiers.
    • With DLC 11 and 12, there are now up to 9 Lifestyle Needs per population tier (incl. Mail).
    • To provide a better balance with all DLC included and having “round” numbers for the maximum population, the provided population of some goods had to be changed.
      This will lead to some light drops in population upon loading your savegame, depending on how many Lifestyle Needs you had already fulfilled previously.
    • We also included the Panorama Effect in our balancing calculations, reacting to feedback you provided after DLC 11.
    • One example of how this can look like:
      • The soap consumption of Engineers previously was: 3,2 complete chains to support 100 residences
      • The new balancing will only require 1,25 complete chains but the population gained moved from 5 down to 2
      • In Engineer skyscrapers with 2 floor levels, the soap will add 2 more residents, with the Panorama Effect level 3 it’ll add 4 extra residents.
      • Additionally, Engineers get 3 new Lifestyle Needs via DLC12 with a total of 16 more residents to a new total with all DLC of 90
    • And another one for the investors:
      • The Bear Fur need was at 1 Bear Hunter per 100 residences
      • Now it will be reduced by about third to 0.65 per 100 Houses
      • However, the provided population will be reduced from 10 to 6
      • An Investor skyscraper with 3 floor gets additional 6 residences from the need
      • Panorama Effect level 5 will then add additional 13 for bear fur when provided
  • The Lifestyle Need “Work clothes” now gives one coin for the Jonaleros when fulfilled
  • Reduced the attractivity bonus for the “Hacienda Pool” ornament
  • Updated the “Water Cooler”, “Distiller” and “Cola Mola Wola Machine” items to also affect the Hacienda Brewery

    After the last update of Anno 1800 in Embesi, the production of lamps does not require wax candles, but ordinary incandescent bulbs from the old world or trelawny. Tell me how this can be fixed?

    Season Pass 5 wäre doch ein grandioser Abschluss

    – Hafen DLC – Am Pre View orientiert, (Neue Schiffe, Größer Hafenbereich, und und und da sprudelt es quasi aus mir)
    – Neue Wege bei einer Expeditionen (mehre aufgaben, unterschiedliche individuelle Story Lines)

    – Asien DLC (Neue Region, und letzer Krönender Abschied. Größe der Welt orientiert an Alte Welt..

    das wäre doch was…

    > “Salvador, the Stalwart (employs Artistas in New World factories for extra goods)”
    excatly what im looking for, great jobs!
    Hopes it affect all factories in the new world 🙂
    All new items looks pretty fun, cant wait to see how they improve gameplays

  5. A Antipotheosis December 2, 2022

    Thanks for the updates!

    Can we get an option in the game startup menu to start the new session DLCs at different points of the game please?

    For example Land of Lions unlocks at 100 Artisans, but could we have the option to start it later? – during Engineers or Investors tiers?
    The same sort of sliding scale for Cape Trelawney and The Arctic? – to delay extra session expansions until we reach Investors can make for a more interesting game if that can work. It may even inspire more development in The Old World rather than rushing elsewhere to develop instead. It would also reduce the storyline conflicts where Archibald and The Queen are appearing in multiple places simultaneously when the Campaign and DLC are played together.
    Please and Thank you.

    Sound interesting.
    How about peaceful Flamethrower Monitors that often prefer to escort an enemy ship rather than attack it?
