A new category of Discoveries titled “Weather/Phenomena” has been added in the latest Industrial Revolution update. Voyagers, throughout their adventures, may experience various phenomena such as large belt shaped clouds, fireballs erupting from the ocean, or even the beauty of light emitting from the creatures inhabiting the area. 

Aide Fleet & Unions

Companies are now able to dispatch an Aide Fleet to different places around the world. With the contribution of various Aides of the company members, dispatched Aide Fleets will help Aides grow and everything obtained from the dispatch location will be accumulated as Regional Contribution at the Company Administration Office.
