Notes

Premium Trader

Economy
Price: 5 Ambrosia per exchange

Duration: Instant

Using the Premium Trader you can exchange your resources for other types. The Premium Trader is a simple slider: Both wood and luxury resources are traded 1:1.

Premium Trader Usage

Let's say you have:

18,000 Wood small, 100 Wine small, 3,000 Marble small, 0 Crystal small, 0 Sulphur small

and you want some Crystal small to upgrade your Academy.

You can slide or type 2,000 in the marble box (any number, but something less than your current max for Marble), then you can slide or type 1000 in the Crystal Glass box (or hit the Max arrow button). Now, you have 2,000 Marble small and 1,000 Crystal small(2,000 + 1,000 = 3,000). Maybe you don't want to use the Marble. Then, you can use wood at a 1:1 trade: slide or type 16,000 in the wood box, then slide 2,000 in the Crystal Glass box. Here, you have to use 2,000 Wood small to get 2,000 luxury. Of course, the numbers are up to you, as long as the gains and losses equal zero. This means if you take 1,432 Sulphur small, you have to put 1,432 somewhere else.

Hitting the Max button (the triangle that points to the right) on a slider gives you all that you can convert for that resource. Hitting the Min button (the triangle that points to the left) of the slider sets that resource to 0. You must give up some resources before you can add to others. To be sure you've allocated everything, hit the "Max" button on each resource before clicking the "Trade (5 Ambrosia)" button.

You can Set all to 0 which can help you allocate from scratch, and you can "split equal" which makes equal levels of all resources. Some might not like the "split equal", because of having little useless remnants of resources after upgrade purchases.

  • Note: When you hit the "Trade" button, you will be charged 5 Ambrosia, even if you have changed nothing.

Premium Trader Tips

  • When using Trader to convert for sale/profit, be mindful of what you can actually sell your luxury for. If the marble is plentiful, it is more likely to be cheaper than you think.
  • A large Warehouse increases the efficiency of the cost of the Trader. It is unwise to overlook a full complement of Wood small to enhance Trader efficiency. Even Wood purchased at 10 Gold small is a 20 Gold small luxury wholesale cost.
  • A large Trading post will help as well. Don't stop at level 16, especially if you are interested in making the most money from your goods. Remember: Every odd level of the Trading post increases your trade radius.
  • While it may be overlooked, increasing your Trading port enables you to trade faster by increasing loading speed. Don't forget to spend some of your profit to buy more (cheap) wholesale goods for conversion to retail goods, as well as buying more Cargo Ships.
  • Don't convert all of your wine to another luxury. Running out of Wine small makes your citizens unhappy.

If, for instance, you're trying to pay for a Palace or Governor's Residence and are ready to use the trader, it is highly recommended that you have at least 500 Wine small more than is required for the Palace or the Governor's Residence.

Resource Ikariam Plus Name and Bonus Duration Cost
Note:
This does not increase the research points you gain from completing an experiment!
Notes:
  • The duration of each bonus is calculated in real time from the moment the click is registered. Additional clicks merely add time to the countdown clock, and can be purchased without losing the existing purchase time.
  • If you go into vacation mode, the clock still ticks down on your enhanced resource gathering, and you effectively lose some of the bonus that you've paid for because your workers stop harvesting.

Using the enhanced resource gathering bonuses, you will receive 20% additional resources on each of your islands that produce those goods. The 20% bonus is calculated from your base production.

  • Bonuses are cumulative, not multiplicative. Example: Βase production of 500 Marble small per hour + a Level 5 Stonemason (10% increase) + Enhanced Resource Gathering bonus (20% increase) = 500 + ( 500 * 0.1 ) + ( 500 * 0.2 ) = 500 + 50 + 100 = 650 Marble small per hour.

Move Town

Price: 220 Ambrosia each town movement
Duration: Instant

Using this feature, you can move a town to wherever you want as often as you want (no cool down). Only condition is that there is no event on the city (army, navy or transport, neither yours nor from anyone else). You can move a town from the "Colonize" screen, so find the spot you want to move to, and then select the city to move there.

Notes:
  • If you move your town to an island with a different luxury type and you have a luxury boosting building already in your town, that building will stay in your town, but becomes useless.
  • Any donations that you made to your old island will remain in your donation score, but will not transfer in any way to the new island. If you later move back to your original island, your earlier donations will show up there again.
  • You may still move a town in this way even if you have spies in transit, their transit times will just be adjusted accordingly when you move.
  • Your capital can be one of the towns that moves.

Mercenary Transporter

Price: 5 Ambrosia per transportation
Duration: For one transportation, as long as it takes

Some seafaring man would sail to the end of the world to get a bit Ambrosia! You are able to charter transporters for 5 Ambrosia to sail with your fleet and increase your transport capacity significantly.

Using this feature, you can double your existing quantity of Cargo Ships for one transport action.

  • This appears to be a very expensive Ikariam Plus feature, as its duration is likely to be less than a day. In contrast, even if the Trader is instantaneous, it can also save over a week worth of gathering goods. There are only a few opportunities that make Mercenary Transporter a practical expense.

Triton Engines

  • The patch-notes posted on the forums refer to this option as Triton Jets.
Triton Engines-0
It will take the Normal 20 minutes per island location, excluding diagonals. (0% reduction - 20 / 1 * 60 = 1,200 seconds)
Triton Engines-100
It will take 10 minutes per island location, excluding diagonals. (50% reduction - 20 / 2 * 60 = 600 seconds)
Triton Engines-200
It will take 6 minutes 40 seconds per island location, excluding diagonals. (66% reduction - 20 / 3 * 60 = 400 seconds)
Triton Engines-300
It will take 5 minutes per island location, excluding diagonals. (75% reduction - 20 / by 4 * 60 = 300 seconds)

These engines are crafted in Triton, son of Poseidon's, temple and can be mounted on the outside of our trade ships.  For a fair Ambrosia donation, Prometheus will fill the engines of all ships used with a divine fire from Hephaestus' forge, which will drive the ships across the seas with divine powers.
