Anno 1800 (PC): Game Update 17

Release Date: Tuesday, April 4th, 3 PM CEST

Features & Content

  • Added Creative Mode
    • The Creative Mode is a separate game mode (in addition to Sandbox and Campaign) that is only available in singleplayer
    • For this mode, several existing rules were changed or removed, allowing players to build freely without having to worry about workforce, construction costs or money
    • It also allows the placement of unlimited numbers of ornamental monuments, as well as e.g. hotels in the New World or Enbesa
  • Added Stamp Feature
    • Allows to create and save “Stamps” from existing buildings and blueprints
    • The Stamps are available in all local savegames and the files can be manually shared with other players
    • Stamps therefore allow players to e.g. save and re-use certain city or production layouts
  • Added new World’s Fair Exhibition
    • Completing the new “Annoversary Exhibition” will grant the player special fireworks as well as Golden Tickets for the Grand Gallery
  • Added an Annoversary ornament: the Fountain of Fortune


  • Changed the calculation of average happiness to better count in Tourists
    • Happiness now calculates with the population number of each residence building type instead of the number of residences of a certain type. This gives greater weight to Hotels/Tourists and will overall change the island happiness on existing saves

  • The “Flour” Lifestyle Need now gives at least one coin starting at Farmer’s level

  • Change the skill bonus on expeditions for Sea Mines (from Hunting to Naval Power) and Bombs (from Naval Power to Force)

    • Additional effects added: 1t additional good all 3 cycles, and +25% productivity
  • Fixed the inconsistent Fire Extinguisher consumption which is now 1t per cycle
  • Reworked the item “Sunday Best Law” now providing Lifestyle Needs instead

    This is ridiculous. In game menu RAM consumption is 7GB already. In DX11 mode I constantly get ‘Presentation failed’ error. In DX12 mode – Oh-Noes-Out-Of-Memory every 20 minutes (16GB RAM + 8GB swap). Fix your game!

    • R Rfeuk April 23, 2023

      I used to play normally on this exact config until built first Empire of The skies building.

  2. H HAlanMontgomery April 18, 2023

    Please look at item above that says:
    “Lobster Cheminee” Restaurant recipe is now unlocking again upon providing Clay Pipes to Scholars

    The new verbage is unclear. What does it mean thatthis is unlocked if you supply Clay Pipes on multiple islands? Do I have to have a colony of Scholars on another island? If so, that may be a problem. Clay Pipes are unlocked only after I have 4000 scholars on an island.

    What does the verbage for Unlock of “Lobster Cheminee” mean? I tried posting this a couple of places on Forums and got nothing back.

    •   Ubi-Thorlof April 19, 2023

      The unlock condition here takes all your islands into account. However, it’s now calculated in a way that fulfilling it on one of your islands should unlock the recipe. This, however, does not work retroatively.
      So, on existing saves you’re likely still encountering the issue if the quest is already active.

  3. S Shutey56 April 8, 2023

    Great to see so many updates but one that hasn’t been documented is not longer being able to conquer an island. Now you can take the shares but the option to conquer and take over the island no longer exists. This to me makes no sense.

  4. K Krakus4000 April 7, 2023

    I am a newbie to this game. For some reason, I missed this game for so many years. Accidentally I came across it and bought it on sale. What a great decision it was! I only played Campaign for two or so weeks, but I am now totally hooked on it and probably addicted. Just can’t stop playing it. This game is beautifully designed and looks great on my 27” 5K monitor. Of course, I had a hard time in the beginning, had to learn so much. It wasn’t easy, I must admit. I am still learning a lot every day, the game is very complicated, but not impossible to figure out. One thing which I would really love to have is the manual in the shape of the book. With nice pictures and diagrams and all features explained. Personally, I would even pay for it $100. Available help online is not really up to par. I am only at Artisan level and have islands in 4 worlds. Almost went bankrupt at the beginning when Beryl declared war on me. But I have survived (so far) and I am doing great financially, but she gets more and more annoyed with me. I did not even start the war, as far as I know.

    One thing which bothers me a lot. After playing for some time, I want to stop for a break, so I put the game in Pause, but the problem is that my Graphics card, Radeon 6900 XT, still works at full power blasting warm air in the room even though nothing is happening on a frozen screen. Why is that? I know I can completely exit the game but when I come back, I don’t want to wait for the game to load again. It would be so much better to have the computer in idle mode during the Pause in the game.

    Another thing is with buying islands from your AI opponent. It costs a lot of money to buy all shares, then even more to Takeover the island. But, even worse, after that everything on the island is destroyed to zero. That I don’t understand.

    Otherwise, I really enjoy playing the game for hours despite my other better half’s complaints.

    Congratulations to Ubisoft for the excellent work done on developing this game!!!

    After GU17 I´ve verified mt mods, but all the neutral traders including pirates dont have goods to sell. its all blank including their requests

  6. d danielstorgaard April 6, 2023

    After GU17 I´ve verified mt mods, but now I can´t speed up the game to max level. Also I´m in late game, so when I try to collect reward from the stadiom in the new world the game craches. Any idea if it is a mod or just a bug (that hopefully will be fixed) I´m 300 h into this game, so I´m litteraly sad. I also have craches then upgrading tiers in the new world. Any ideas ??

  7. d dtdkJohnClark April 5, 2023

    Is it just me, or does the game (modded) run a lot heavier after the update. He even stutters sometimes. It didn’t do this at all before the update.

    • d danielstorgaard April 6, 2023

    im Kreativmodus werden die Arbeitskräfte nicht simuliert, wäre schön wenn die nötigen Arbeitskräfte angezeigt wird damit man sich passende Produktionsketten zu seien Wohnlayouts basteln kann…

    Ist auch ein Patch 17.1 geplant? Bis jetzt war es meistens so, dass z.B. Update 16 / 15 / 13 gut waren aber einige Fehler aufgewiesen haben, die dann zum Großteil mit einem XX.1 Patch behoben wurden. Allerdings waren diese großen Updates ja immer in Verbindung mit einem neuen DLC und das ist ja diesmal nicht der Fall darum die Frage: ist nach Update 17 entgültig Sense mit dem Support von Anno 1800 oder steht ein Patch 17.1 in Aussicht, falls er nötig sein sollte?

    Vielen Dank für dieses tolle finale und umfangreiche Update.

    Leider vermisse ich eine m.E. sehr wichtige Balancing-Anpassung bei der Speicherstadt.
    Es wäre toll, wenn Käptn Morris immer an der schnellsten Anlegestelle (idR Konto) anlegen könnte. Da man dies nicht steuern kann, passiert es leider oft, dass er nicht an der schnellsten Anlegestelle anlegt und ewig braucht, um zu handeln. Vielleicht klappt das noch??? 🙂

    Ein tolles Spiel!!!

    Schade das ich die Goldene Tickets nicht auch für meine Multiplayer Partie nutzen kann.

    Ich Spiele ganz entspannt mit einem Freund zusammen, da hätten wir beide den Vorteil gehabt.

    Vehicle Liveries Pack DLC is showing up in the game menu as City Lights Pack! So City Lights Pack is in the menu twice – content inside is then showing correctly but just the name is wrong – not sure if anyone noticed.

    Thank you for another amazing update!

      Thank you for reporting this! Yes, we’ve noticed and it should get fixed with the update.

    Given the impressive number of skins for numerous residences and also ships, would it be practical to have an option either in the UI or in the options menu that when building a residence or an airship (for example) that it builds with either a standard or randomized skin when constructed or even upgraded?

    Art/Visuals, did you guy fix custom white skin of church on uphill or downhill? I did posted and reported this bug in anno 1800 forum along with missing horse from cart at that time.

    Thank you very much for all wonderful work with patience and compassion! It’s was very good game!

    Thank you for the Stamp feature as I think I will take advantage of that a lot especially as a player who regularly restarts to do better next time.

    I don’t know if it has been suggested before but when I increase my island storage, especially with the docklands, I find myself going through each time changing my goods buy and sell levels. I wonder if having a percentage option with the buy and sell levels would automatically scale with increased storage?

    Dear Anno 1800 Development Team at Blue Byte,

    As an avid player of Anno 1800 since its release in April 2019, I wanted to take a moment to express my deep appreciation and gratitude for the incredible game that you have created. It’s hard to believe that it has been four years since its launch, but the experience has been nothing short of amazing.

    Your hard work, dedication, and attention to detail are evident in every aspect of the game, from the stunning graphics to the intricate gameplay mechanics. Anno 1800 has brought me countless hours of joy and entertainment, and I have no doubt that I will continue to return to it time and time again.

    Although I am sad to hear that there won’t be any more updates for Anno 1800, I am looking forward to hear about future Anno games. I have no doubt that the same level of care and dedication will be poured into these new projects. You bet, I will play it too!

    I want to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating such an incredible game. Your dedication and hard work have not gone unnoticed, and I am grateful for the countless hours of enjoyment that Anno 1800 has brought me.

    Thank you also for the updates that have fixed any issues with the game. Your commitment to continually improving the gaming experience is truly remarkable.

    Once again, thank you for everything that you do. You are appreciated more than you know.

    With sincere gratitude,

    So many improvements in one patch! It’s amazing, thank you!

    I’m so glad You fixed music related issues, cheers!

    Could You bring back skins for ship variants though? There’s a lot of awesome skins for Ships of The Line, but any of its variants outclasses it and makes the basic one obsolete, so as soon as they are unlocked, none of those skins can be used without sacrificing naval power.
