5.3 Moving ships, market wagons, and soldiers

In order to move ships, wagons, or soldiers you must first select them by clicking them with left mouse button. You can now move the ships, wagons, or soldiers to a new location just by clicking it with the left mouse button. If you want to move more then one ship, wagon, or soldier, select them by holding the left mouse button down and drawing a frame around them. This will automatically change them to battle mode. If you prefer, you can also use this technique to select individual ships, wagons, or soldiers.

The "stop" symbol (the hand) lets you stop the movement of ships, wagons, or soldiers.

Please note that there are both market wagons and handcarts on your islands. They differ in that the handcarts, or carts, fellow their pre-set routed automatically within your settlement. Market wagons, which are covered wagons, can be driven manually. Market wagons have to be ordered by a market or warehouse before they become available. You can do this by entering the info mode and clicking the warehouse, or the marketplace, where you wish to have the cart. Click the "market wagon" icon to order the wagon. The cursor will change to a vertical double arrow. Move this double arrow to the point where you want to have the market wagon and click the left mouse button on your mouse (also see chapters 8.2, 8.4, and 8.6).
