Are Clothes a good investment?

How to start a Clothes Company?

You will find everything you need to know about opening a Company in this tutorial: How to create a Company in Anno1777 Long story short this is what you need to get your company up and running:

1. Go to the “My Companies” Menu on the left side of Anno1777 site, click on “OPEN”. You will be presented with all the companies available. Click on “OPEN” next to Clothes Manufacturing.

2. Enter the name and description of your company, then add a picture to it (if you’re having troubles uploading the picture make sure that in the address bar of your browser it’s www.anno1777 and not http://anno1777 or anno1777).

3. Invest some money into your company so you can buy your first tool and to buy some raw materials. The amount you need to invest depends on the type of tool you will buy (Q1 or Q5) how many raw materials you want to buy and their prices in your country.

4. Go to the “Goods” menu on the left, then to the “Machines” tab and on the “Clothes Production” tab you can buy the tool. Click on the 1st star for Q1 tools and on 5th star for Q5 tools. It is recommended to find a seller and make a private deal with him, it will be cheaper than buying from the market. Also Q5 tools are much, much better than Q1 tools

5. Go to your Company’s menu and click on the “Licenses” tab then on the “Buy” tab here you can buy the licenses for your company. Usually Q5 clothes sell better than Q1 Clothes and the profit for a Q5 is much bigger than for a Q1 so you should invest in buying all the Q5 Licenses first and only then in Q1 Licenses. You should do how you feel it’s better for your situation but if money’s the problem go for the Q5′s first.

6. Go to the “Goods” menu, then to the “Materials”. To produce clothes you only need fabrics and leather, you will need much more fabrics than you will need leather. On the “Licenses” menu (in your Company’s menu) you will see how many materials and working hours you will need for each product. It is recommended to find a seller and make a private deal with him, it will be cheaper than buying from the market.

7. Optionally (but sometimes highly recommended) open more workplaces and branches. More workplaces will mean that you can hire more people at a time which will drastically speed up your production. If your country has a pretty good economy you will need at least 5 workplaces at a Clothes Company. Opening a branch in a new region will allow you to sell and recruit workers from that region. While opening branches is a very good idea you should be very careful because if your country loses the region in which you opened a branch you will not be able to use that branch until your country gets the region back and sometimes this may even take months.
