DLC content includes:

3 new trade and war ships

Cog has more durability and cargo space than Caravel and being only slightly slower than Caravel, it is a solid early game trade ship.

Naval Snow is the fastest ship in the game. Use them to hunt down enemy trade ships.

Lugger is a spacious coastal vessel. It can transport large quantities of raw resources from other colonies to your production centrals.

Colonial Navy DLC New Resources

3 new resources, with new production chains & buildings

Wheat can be found in the central areas of the game. It can be processed into flour, which in turn can be processed into bread. Bread can only be sold to your other colonies. You shouldn’t create this production chain until you have few other colonies to sell bread into.

Fur can be found in the northern areas of the game. Furrier can create Fur Clothing from Furs.

Wood can be found in the southern areas of the game. Building a sawmill and a carpenter will give you access to Furniture.

Colonial Navy DLC Historical Battles

3 Historical Naval Battles

Cape Rachado

The battle of Cape Rachado was fought between the Dutch and the Portuguese fleets in the year 1606 near Cape Rachado, Malacca. In this setting, the Dutch fleet consists of 11 ships lead by Admiral Cornelis Matelief de Jonge while the Portuguese fleet has 20 ships lead by vice-roy Martim Afonso de Castro. Even though the Dutch lost this battle, it was enough to convince the Sultanate of Johor to support the Dutch in the Dutch-Portuguese War, and eventually end the Portuguese supremacy in the region.

Battle of San Juan de Ulúa

The battle of San Juan de Ulúa was fought between English privateers and Spanish forces in the year 1568. In this setting the English privateers have 5 ships commanded by John Hawkins and the Spanish forces have 3 ships commanded by Francisco Luján. The privateers were anchored at San Juan de Ulúa for repairs and resupply when a Spanish escort fleet arrived in the port. Because of a treaty between the two nations the privateers were not concerned for their safety. However, the privateers had been plundering for a full year and Luján was aware of this and swiftly attacked the privateer fleet. Swift attack and the capture of the island's bastion ensured the Spanish victory.
