  1. Poll: Re: US Presidential Election 2016: Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump

    It cost £1,000 to build. The highest noble income is £4,500. The highest income in this game is 50,000 Crowns. As a percentage of £4,500, £1,000 represents 22%. Therefore, a Carrack should cost 22%...

    25-30 purpose built ships still amounts to (at the cheapest) 375,000 Crowns to build and 125,000 Crowns to maintain. I've cited proof that equipping a modern Navy costs as much as equipping a modern...

    I'm still waiting on any sort of source to back that assumption. Maintaining a Navy today is not nearly as expensive as maintaining an army is, when did that reverse and why?
