Hello- I’m playing the 7.1.2 and I’ve built the bigger trading dock in two scenarios- the first time I had a small dock and normal trading, then I demolished it and put in the big dock and no more traders came, I quit that game.

The second time, I had a small dock and a large dock. The small one gets traders and the bigger one, well the traders row by and make a circle and head back out, never stopping.

I’ve quit and restarted etc. Is there possibly a bug?
I am using a game wrapper to play on a Mac, but I don’t know enough about to know if this could effect game mechanics.

Thank you so much for all of your time!!


    Yeah there’s a bug where big docks built on lakes don’t work, only on rivers. Not sure why.

    It’s a known problem of the big dock and also of one of the DS trading posts with a similar layout. As said, it mainly happens in certain locations of lakes rather than the river. It must be a pathing issue which we can not really debug.

    So far, you can only try to avoid it by placing it at the river or as exposed as possible in a lake. I want to make some tests with different landing points and placements but not sure if it can be solved.

    I found the cause and could solve it. When my current work is done, I will make a minor update. It’s a really annoying bug and should be fixed.


    Thanks for the info- I will try it on the river : )
    I had the same problem with the export trading and will try that on the river too.


Should be 5 Tar
