You are so right @Tom Sawyer
! I do enjoy this game, but a rough, Nordic climate, where nothing grows, where people freeze and have to struggle to get enough supply, to make it through the winter. That's more my thing! It's like going on vacation to Italy or Spain (we try to make it 2 weeks each autumn). I enjoy it very much for a while, but after about 10 days, I feel that at home is nice, too and when it's time to leave, I use to be happy. @Abandoned
; The trade with Cho Cho isn't complicated at all. It's very convenient and relyable, as long as you sell only a few things and buy only a few things. It also has coins. You sell some things for coins in the station buildings, only one good at the time. There are different station buildings for different type of goods. The only thing you should pay attention to; building a station for the type of goods you want to sell. The train brings what you order, taking coins as payment. As it looks, you can order everything, except seeds and animals (at least I haven't seen any but the menu with the MM is huge, so I might have overseen it). Again only one type of good at the time. After you've choose, what you buy and sell, you must do nothing more. Everything runs automatically, until you want to change the goods you sell or buy. As far as I can see, the prizes are the same, as in the trading port. The train needs a little bit coal and the station a bit wood (for package, I think) but not much. So it cost a little bit, but less than order it by the merchant.
Here are some pictures;First picture
Railway station area. Of cause, there has to be decent inn close for the people, who are waiting for the train. This one is very nice. I think it's from you @Discrepancy
. You make very nice things. The huge barn is also fantastic.
I don't have to buy much, only a little building material. 2 trains and 4 station buildings are too much, but I haven't built any trains before, so I had to test it. I started to buy coal, to be able to run the train, now I buy apples, so I can run the brewery in the nice inn, so I can sell ale in the station...... to buy..... I don't know.... maybe a couple of stones and a little building supply or some fancy homeware.... Second picture
Of cause the inn needs a parking lot. You can also see that I have plenty of everything. Really no need for the trains.Third picture
I like these houses very much, really nice. I wonder how many people have missed their train, because they stayed too long in the nice "Biergarten" from the inn.
