## Costs

Cargo Ships are purchased at the Trading port. Each Cargo Ship you buy costs more than the previous one. 180 that are purchasable with   gold. 40 that are purchasable with ambrosia after you have researched Cultural Exchange.

Formula for the nth Cargo Ship:

${S_n = 3 \times \lfloor 4500 \times 1.03^n - 4475 \rfloor}$, where ${\lfloor ... \rfloor}$ means rounding down.

Note about the formula: After checking multiple ship costs, it looks like the math is more precise using basic rounding instead of rounding down. But I'm not good in editing pages, so somebody else should check and correct the numbers.

If you look at the image to the left, this player has 3 Cargo Ships:
0 of 72, from Friends
Maximum of 6 per each friend with a maximum of 12 friends
0 of 2, from Governments
0 of 12, from the Daily login bonus
Maximum of 1 per each town you own, maximum of 12 towns

3 of 180 that are purchasable with
0 of 40 that are purchasable with

Notes:
1. You can purchase up to a maximum of 180 cargo ships with gold.
2. You can purchase up to a maximum of 40 Phoenician Merchant Ships with ambrosia.
3. You can gain up to a maximum of 72 extra cargo ships, from friends that join the game through the "Invite a friend" link and they are 'active'.
4. You can gain 2 extra cargo ships from changing your Government to either Dictatorship or Oligarchy.
5. You can gain 12 extra cargo ship from the Daily login bonus.
6. Cargo ships gained from friends, Governments or the Daily login bonus do not increase the cost of what your next purchasable cargo ship will cost, had you not have received the extras.
• This will allow you to have a maximum of 306 cargo ships.
