I have completed the adventure campaign, i have got port royale, tampa, port st joe, corpus cristi and roatan up and running but i am losing so much money, i am paying out more costs than i am gaining.

In the villages/cities i have income from the housing rest, but the building costs and labour costs are putting my profit into loss. This is occuring through most of my villages and i am struggling to keep my campaign afloat.

Has anyone got any decent sollutions on how to get a village into good profit and to keep it that way. How many residences should i build, why is there building costs? and how do i get the labour costs down?

i have about 10 trade routes active but even that cant seem to maintain the profit

many thanks

That is pretty much normal in the adventure campaign.

You should start running businesses, especially corn and cotton in Port Royale. But sell them for money only as a last resort.

You might want to stop doing trade routes as they will sometimes give you losses. It's like a 50%.

If you want to really boost up your money count, you should do the administrator missions. They are not too hard and they give you a lot of money in the later levels.

Make an alliance with Spain and get letters of marque to attack other cities, but choose to conquer them. You get a lot of money from its revenue.

  • i did build many businesses in port royale but that was a vast reason for its loss in the town, the building costs and labour costs were far higher than what it was selling for, so i was then back at the start of how to get profit Jan 10, 2013 at 11:19
