Yet another major loss :-)

» [1:46 am] Shipment of 50000 [clay] from Chabua arrived at Doom Dooma. 94 of your ships sailed onto the floodplain and had to be abandoned!

Never knew transporting clay would be so costly. But, I am a cedar producer, and I don't mind the loss too much. Actually, it gives me a new activity to engage my city in for mostly it is only continuous upgrades in what is now a basically dead Sabah.

Cheers! :cool:

This is still my all-time favorite!

[07/22 @ 9:50 am] Shipment of 26 [cedar] from Pirate Cove arrived at Djedu. 1 of your ships sailed onto the floodplain and had to be abandoned!

:D

Cracks me up! LOL

I send out quite a few 26 cedar to New Players.

Does the number 26 have any significance?

26 cedar is what it normally takes to build the very first ship. If a new player has only 25 cedar, for example by buying it from the Nubian Trader in the market, they can get stuck with only 99% of their ship built. :(

It is thought that this may be due to rounding errors in the calculations.

That was 108 out of 500, which is 21.6% of the total ships. But look what happened now:

» [1:06 am] Shipment of 16591 [perfume] from Tinsukia arrived at Doom Dooma. 40 of your ships sailed onto the floodplain and had to be abandoned!

This is a loss of 24.1% of the total ships that I sent to sail.

Again, no problem. I need some activity.

:-)

don't send so many ships in one bunch. :)

I never send more than 20 in any one group. Keeps the loses to more managable numbers.

Well, that's a perspective. However, as a cedar producer I don't think much. Besides, on the flip side you get this http://www.tiltedmill.com/forums/showpost.php?p=278386&postcount=146 :rolleyes:

But then you have to spend bread to buy more cedar as you use it to rebuild ships, so that counterbalances the jewelry find.

I notice that shortly after any of my ships find jewelry, I seem to lose some ships in the next shipments soon afterwards.
