Couple questions regarding EIC.
1. It seems that trade routes are very simplistic, like I don't get to choose what products will be bought and sold. Is there a way to change this?
(I figure that maybe I just havent' stumbled across how to accomplish that yet).
2. I have a warehouse, but what is it's purpose? I mean, why should I buy stuff in my port and put it in my wharehouse? And finally, when i do buy stuff and store it in my wharehouse, how do I get any of my automatic trade route ships to pull stuff out of my wharehouse and use that instead of the stuff that is found in the trade building? Basically, I'd like to do the buying and store it in my wharehouse, and have the automatic trade route fleets that visit my home port to take the product out of the warehouse and go and sell that at the port that I set them up to trade at, how is this accomplished if at all possible?
3. I figure that theres got to be more to this game than meets the eye, I keep feeling that I've not done more than scratched the top of the soil with regards to the economy in the game, but I see no other options to really dig into the games economy and really feel that I'm making a difference. Seeems all that I do is set my fleets to auto trade route, wait for the money to come in, buy more ships, attach them to my fleets and sit and wait for more money to come in, then rinse and repeat until there is no more room in my fleets for new ships. Obviously I must be missing the meat and potatos of this game, so what is that?
Thanks for your time.
