I researched Promethium Extraction but I don`t have the option to build a Harbor to the Arctic. What am I missing?

Hello, I went through this a few weeks ago.
Look for something like this on the "left side" of your city.
It is your Arctic Harbor.

Click on it to access two tabs.
[My ship is out getting Promethium so I can't do into detail.]

Two Tabs: Harbor and Ship.
You access and fulfill both tabs before every journey.


Harbor:
Lets you pick crew members.
I recommend picking crew members that:
Decrease travel time. [First priority, because you don't want timers longer than 24 hours.]
Increase Promethium.
Use the same several crew members again and again, so they level up.
Crew members level up in a simple fashion.

Ship:
Always repair your ship when it comes back and you collect your Promethium.
Get it fixed all the way before sending it out for more.
Even if you have to wait to have the goods to fix it, you should wait.
It'll take about 125 Arctic Future goods to send a fully-repaired ship and full crew.
You must send your ship out fully repaired and with a full, optimum crew.

When my ship comes back, I'll document more and walk you through how I'm learning how to do it.

Nice, kept hearing about the ship but never knew how it worked. Thanks!

What is promethium used for? Still not sure if it's worth moving up from FE once I get there - guild cares about gvg.

Promethium is used for Research Requirements, GE and Continent Map Negotiations like any other good except it can't be traded but can be bought with diamonds in the tech tree at a pretty high cost.

What is promethium used for?
Slowing down progression.
Also Tech Tree and Negotiations.
Just like any other type of Good.
I'd be done with my Arctic Future Tech Tree in 3 weeks without it.

It a new type of resource, like Goods.
It can not be plundered or traded.
Only your harbor can make your Promethium.
Right now, I make about 65 or so Promethium every 20 or so hours.
Leveling your favorite crew mates helps.
I'm assuming my production will improve as I upgrade my Harbor.

I'll continue to post what I learn as I go along.

Sounds like the game designers were up late one night as they were planning the future expansion - somehow they landed on this Arctic scene and wanted to extend the game play for those of us nearing the previous "end game". Maybe it'll take a year to reach the 2nd "end game" status!

I am now in Ocean Future and have changed how I pick my crew.
I used to go for maximum Promethium harvests.
Now, I pick engineers to prevent my ship from taking damage.
I get less Promethium, but I pay a lot less in Arctic Future goods for ship repair.

Now, the trade-off is worth it.

I am lingering in FE by design, but was 'forced' into AF on the province maps by quests and events. Some of the sectors give promethium but I don't know where it goes. What happens to it if you don't have a harbor/ship or whatever uses it when you're still in FE? It isn't added to the inventory. Can't find any way to search the forum by keyword to get an answer - clicking search on the title of a topic goes to a blank screen.

now I'm trying to mark the options to watch this thread for an answer and have to type another reply.

I am having a difficult time understanding the attributes of newer players beyond +/- ship, promerthium, and time. I have a player that only provides what might be a map. Another has a face in profile 3 times stacked on top of each other. There are many others. How do I know what these attributes do?
