New Town and AI

 

When does the AI starts to trade with a newly founded town?

 

Patrician IV offers the chance to found up to 12 towns. This is an assignment you can fulfill to achieve the alderman position according to this it is very challenging.

But when does the AI support you with the build up process?

 

The AI will trade with a town when it becomes a Hanseatic trading post. As this status is the goal of the elderman assignment, you can not expect any help from the AI at this point.

 

After the Hanseatic trading post upgrade it will take some time until the AI visits your town. In case of missing housing space your opponents will built a counting house first, followed by some houses.
