View Full Version : Impossibility to build new ships and my fleet is gone.

02-01-2019, 04:53 PM

I have a cities in the Old World (1900 Artisans - 2000 Workers - 1900 Farmers), and a little colony Tier 2 in the New World. I have two shipyards in each world. I got many ships (I built them when all the AI declared war on me).

But after a siege, I lost them. And now, I want to build new ones. But I can't.

It's impossible to build any ships in any of my shipyards (I tried to rebuild them, nothing changed). When I go to Archibald Blake's Harbour, the only ship I can buy is a flagship. And when I go to the diplomatic screen, my military score didn't change (like when I had my ships).

There is some screenshot.


Best regards, Kaliou6.

Hey i have the same bug, i think this is tied to the negative Influence value. I think the game doesn't check whether what amount of influence you need to pay in order to get a ship (or building) only if the amount afterwards is negative.
Therby when you have a negative influence value you can't build or buy anything that could potentially need influence to buy, even if the curren value is 0.
Propably a negative influence should not be possible or was supposed not to be possible at some develpopment state.

In my case i can neither build any ships or buildings that require influence, even if they cost 0 influence.

@Aletsch Are you able to provide screenshots as well? If you were to increase your influence value to a positive number, does it allow you to resume building?

sure if you can tell me whats the fastest way to gain 104 influence i should be able to get some from destroying some buildings but propably not all of it

I don't think it's a bug. but same here, when influence is neg, impossible to build.a ship. Some ships require like 8 or 10 influence score to be built.
the hardest thing to do,is how to get some positive influence :D

I will follow this up with the Anno team regarding negative influence. I will update this thread once I have information to provide!

im quite sure it has to be a bug because i can't even build a ship that doesn't need any influence


and here i try to build a Part of a Museum


Both of them have 0 Influence cost, the same happens when i try to publish a newspaper without any editing which is not possible



im pretty sure that this is a bug
