View Full Version : Exporting large basalt? (Henen-Nesu 2nd Mission Moderate)

I understand that Laborers won't quarry large basalt statues until there is a project that requires them. In my current mission however I have to open trade with a city by giving them 4 large basalt statues. How do I do this if I can't get them out of the ground? There is no other place to buy them, the basalt quarry is on my local map. I have the Overseer and Laborers all ready to go but I don't know how to get these guys out.

I believe that if you set an overseer to "Quarry Basalt Statues" they will quarry away, as they do limestone.
Am I mistaken?

If you have a overseer and laborers, and the overseer is set to quarry that's just what they'll do project or no.

I'm playing the "Daughter of Isis" scenario and I've only been able to quarry 2 large statues out of 85 total little statues, this is only because I've located two sites in the world map that require one large statues each for dedication, I have those 2 statues in my drop site inventory but am unable to use either of them to dedicate my cult temple as one of them disappeared at my dock yard. I don't think they're reserving them for the world map sites, because I haven't established a trade connection with either place requiring them.

Make sure you set your Overseer's job to "Oversee construction" (right-click on his household as you may already know). Because only then he will order his laborers to haul the statues to the site. :)

oh nevermind! I have lots of large statues now for some reason, just the one I need to complete my temple is stuck in the mud! :(

Yeah I've had the problem with burried local barges too, during the last tutorial. Maybe you could order your overseer to do another job, resulting in the laborer do something else and then setting the overseer back to construction. If the laborers still run back to the "burried ship" then there might be a problem indeed :)
