Levels of research:


Our scientists have found out that our ships have less water resistance when their load is smaller.  This means that we can put larger sails on the mast and travel more quickly.


Allows: Quicker Cargo Ship's with lighter loads.
Maximum loads for Cargo Ships are selected before transport of resources begins
500 resources per ship
Up to 500 resources per ship takes the normal 20 minutes per island location.
400 resources per ship
Up to 400 resources per ship takes 17 minutes and 8 seconds per island location.
300 resources per ship
Up to 300 resources per ship takes 15 minutes per island location.
200 resources per ship
Up to 200 resources per ship takes 13 minutes and 20 seconds per island location.
100 resources per ship
Up to 100 resources per ship takes 12 minutes per island location.
