    Long ago we reproached the journeys aspect (Europe / New World) of this game . Indeed when we bought new ships or the trip West / Europe / East (etc, etc ...), our ships could appear anywhere on the map and this was a disadvantage or a danger.

    Now, when you will select a ship in an "Europe" plot, two icons "Sextant" On and Off appear successively in the "Background".

    The icon "The Sextant" you will create a "seaway" and the "Sextant Off" to remove it by placing yourself on the same box.

    By clicking the "Sextant On" you will activate a popup that allows you to name as you want this road.

    Once created your Seaway, a circle (color of your nation) will appear visible to only you.
    Spoiler :

    View from Europe:
    Spoiler :

    As usual, you can come back you came from, but you can open the log and choose your destination with your Seaways previously established.
    Here you are with the open book. All your seaways are defined here.
    By pointing it, a flash point appear on the updated map on the left leaf and you can view the position of your seaway.

    Er... why did you make three of these threads, one in your mod forum, one in the main Col C&C forum, and one in the Mods and Files forum which is only for actual mods, with downloadable files?

    Sorry for reviving this old thread, but I think it's way too short. You deserve to get more praise for this awesome, yet simplistic feature that really puts the unmodded game to shame. Great job on this!

    Thanks a lot. ;)
    It is really important to have seaways in this game.
    It can be really painful to have to cross all the map to reach one of our city. :eek:

    Are the links in the first post broken? I see neither of the 3 pictures.
