Anno-online Wiki

Island generation follows this basic pattern:

  1. Decide Island Size - This is based upon the sailor being used, and the ship type has no bearing.
  2. Decide Island Map - Purely random, based on a predefined pool of maps for each island size
  3. Determine Resource Nodes - These are based on the map itself. And the type of resource is determined by the sailor being used again.
  4. Determine Map Fertility - Based on sailor being used. Island size, map, and resource nodes have no impact on this.
  5. Determine Island Name - Random Selection.


Individual nodes are capable of spawning different resources. If there are two islands with the same layouts, one node can provide a different resource than a corresponding node in the same location on the other island.

Island slots[]

Island slots are found in the islands menu and can be unlocked either by expanding your settlement or by using rubies. 4 Islands slots are unlocked by population, while 4 slots can only be unlocked by using rubies.

Island sizes[]

Main island[]

Everyone starts on the same main island. It has a predetermined map, with resource nodes, fertilities, and name all decided before the game starts.These features are identical to all users.
