Just found out the hard way, that AoP gives no warning about cargo loss, or confirm button, for trading in your current ship for a new one.
I had a LARGE supply of gold and was making my way down the BIG map, from top left, to bottom right. I was making for a port, that had a scarcity in gold.
Bought a new ship, and lost ALL the cargo except 7 units of rations.
I don't know if a warning is printed in the manual, but it sure isn't, in the game.
I'm afraid that, because I'm in Pirate role-playing mode - Cory Trese and fallen, will have to walk the plank, for this.
Get ye hands off of me gold, ye scurvy bilge rats. Ayyyy. Arrr.
On a more serious note...
Any chance of an obvious link, to the game manuals, in each section of the site please? One at the top of each game area, cos I can never remember, where they are.
It may be helpful, to place a "manual" button, on the first page of each game, to make it obvious. I get the impression from reviews and comments, that people aren't finding "first contact", with the games, very user friendly. Be a REAL shame, for people to miss the wonderful depths of the games, just because they find the surface too hard to penetrate.
