This looks like an intersting Sim.

Great game, I played it in '94 for months. It takes some getting used to, but the intricate trading system is very rewarding for those with the patience. :ok: But alas, the review said that already.

the game starts in the year 1854 with the longest possible playtime 15 years, so you are in 1869 when the game ends. but i don't really want to know how Max Design came upon this name :blink:

I'm currently making a list of all the ports in the game and wha tthey buy and sell, so far I've done Europe. As you cannot attach files to posts in Games Discussion (why btw?) I can't share it with you right now but I'll upload it somewhere when I'm finished.

Why not? ;) In 1869 the Suez Canal was opened, shortening the way from Europe to India by about 7000km, as ships didn't have to go around all of Africa anymore. That was quite an impressive milestone in the history of seafare, that's why Maxis probably chose the name.
