"The captain of the Aeon got a DUI last night when he drove his boat full of Jewels into a floodplain. More on this as the story develops."

Sweet! :D I won't be upping my shipments hoping to stumble across some pirate booty, but maybe this will appease some of the naysayers. (Knock on cedar, I still haven't lost a ship in almost 100 shipments.)

EDIT: And not only ten minutes later... this is why I shouldn't tempt the fates. :D

Yeah, it feels like a bug (and has been reported as one). :( I always try to keep left over cedar to get me over the hump on that last 1% of ship completion. Looks like I better keep more than just a few extra cedar though, if my silly ship captains are going to start grounding themselves on the mud flats. :)

Is there an antidote for sinkage. Can you have some superscience formula to prevent such supergyrowhirls in the nilepoolrepertoire

lol, no way to avoid them if you have over 11 or more ships. It's only 4% chance or so. Ship only comes in one colour =/

I see that this is no longer Braking Knewz...

Shipment of 100 from Tinkerdrome arrived at Tinkertron. Your crew found a treasure chest! 8 jewelry have been added to your city! [12/11 @ 11:32 pm]

The jewelry is added to the city that owns the boat, not the destination city.

I also hope that TM now will have LOTS of different messages for us to add to the list & even more types of goodies too! :D
