Characteristics of Steam Ships

The Industrial Revolution is changing everything, with steam ships being the next great invention arriving on the world stage. There are multiple differences between Steam Ships and all other traditional sailing ships built in the past.


  • •    By depleting the new item 'Coal Fuel', you can increase the sailing capabilities of the ship
  • •    While on the seas, your sailors have more resistance to fatigue
  • •    When carrying 'Coal Fuel', you're protected from broad-side waves, high waves, and strong gusts
  • •    While on the seas, make use of the 'Steam Whistle' from the settings in your Shortcuts
  • •    Increases chance of fire occurring while on the seas, including during Sea Battle.
* You cannot put 'Coal Fuel' in your Captain's Bag or Strongbox.
* If you obtain 'Coal Fuel' while on the seas, it may take some time before your sailing capabilities are increased.
* Even without 'Coal Fuel', you can still travel with the use of sails.
* If you're in a fleet, you can communicate with each other using the 'Steam Whistle'.

Coal Fuel & Industrial Revolution

'Coal Fuel' is a must-have item used to unlock the full potential of Steam Ships.
This powerful new resource can be purchased in North American cities as well as cities undergoing an Industrial Revolution.

Cities to Buy Coal Fuel

Bilbao, Viana do Castelo, Cattaro, Le Havre, Rotterdam, Portsmouth, Boston, Omaha, Sacramento, Tacoma and San Francisco

Coal Fuel Depletion

  • •    While navigating on the seas with a Steam Ship, 'Coal Fuel' will automatically be consumed.
  • •    While 'Coal Fuel' is available, the capabilities of the Steam Ship will increase.
  • •    After all of your 'Coal Fuel' has been depleted, the Steam Engine on your Steam Ship will cease to function and its capabilities will return to normal.

Industrial Revolution & Steam Ships

When an Industrial Revolution occurs in your affliated country, 'Coal Fuel' can be used more efficiently. During this period, the rate of depletion of 'Coal Fuel' when sailing on the seas on a Steam Ship decreases.

Building a Steam Ship

  • •    You can build a Steam Ship at the Factory of your Home Nation while it's in the state of Industrial Revolution.
  • •    The NPC inside the Factory, the 'Steam Engineer', will help you create a construction plan and get you one step closer to building a Steam Ship.
* The Shipbuilding Skill Rank 10 and the Handicraft Skill Rank 10 are required to build a Steam Ship.
