Dawn of Discovery

Post by dbt1949 »

I'm going thru the tutorial and I've come to the point (early on) where I have to unload some "flotsam" at Cathedral City's warehouse and I can't do it to save my soul. I've yelled and screamed and cursed but that didn't work for some reason.
It's really olde game but any of you remember this?
Thanks!

Is that Anno 1404? My memory is probably wrong, but have you tried dragging the flotsam from your ship's cargo to the warehouse?

I have DoD currently installed, so I fired up the tutorial. When I had to unload the first flotsam to my warehouse, I had the ship highlighted, and right-clicked on my warehouse. Then, the circular arrows were blinking in the menu in the bottom right corner, so I clicked on that to trade. Then dragged the tools up to the warehouse menu in the upper right corner. Then I had to stop as the family was calling.

If this isn't the flotsam quest you're describing, I would think the trading button & sequence would be same? Sorry if this wasn't helpful. I can try again later if you're still having difficulty.

If that doesn't help, have a butcher's at this series of Anno 1404 beginner's guide video walkthroughs, as they'll likely be more helpful for learning how to play than the tutorials:

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." -- Daniel Webster

Thanks for your help guys!
Turned out I had the wrong flotsam or not enough of it. I found two more sites of it and after picking those up I was able to unload it.
