Thanks OLDIE, I enjoy writing the maps.
when spy offers brig for $500 or $1000, and says if no dock is avail., ship will appear when one becomes avail. I tried it twice, no ship
Ship appears after you have enough gold in your hoard to pay and you have less than 6 ships (a Tropico 2 inherent limit, I'm uncertain of the effect of increasing it, so I don't).
The ship appears on the sea zone map (anchoring at sea) if there are no docks available.
spy offers $1000, $2000,
or $3000 gambles, I never get any result from selecting choice
The spy returns more goods the next time he visits. Multiples of $1000 add on the amount the spy originally would deliver, part multiples pro rata.
The maximum random amount of these goods is 3.5 times the minimum.
Hope this info helps.
