Question about merchant ships Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I was wondering how merchant ships work because recently i opened up a new stall and i don't receive any commodities from merchant ships even tho I am the person buying at highest price. I don't have any problems on my stalls on a different island. The stalls are on neighboring islands so do the merchants sell the items to the island on the arch that pays the most?

Distance from the source island and price compared to other islands do factor in to the destination islands for the merchant brigands. The quantity you are showing that you will buy might need to be a big enough quantity too.

Additionally, some commodities are only on colonized islands; those have to be gotten through market bidding (or someone selling to you).
