Clicking the warehouse, or on one of the marketplaces, in a city while in the info mode will display a status report for that city. Clicking the right button on your mouse brings you to the next higher menu where the overall status (the player status) of all your islands is shown. The number of inhabitants is displayed, as well as expenses and income. Always keep an eye on the overall financial status of your islands. To make it easier to keep track the total sum is color-coded. Red means you are operating at a loss, and green means that you are making a profit. You should check this status regularly once your settlements begin to grow to help keep you informed about any changes.
Underneath your current account balance you can find your current score. This lets you compare your current status with past games. Clicking the question mark beside the point score will open the evaluation screen, where you can see a detailed analysis of your game so far. Clicking the right button of your mouse returns you to the playing screen.
