|Unit Information||Game Strategies||History|
Being little more than a rudimentary covered raft, the Transport Barge has very low hit points, moves fairly slow and thus is extremely vulnerable to most attacks, especially those from the nimble Light Ships, and buildings (Cities, Towers, and Forts.).
- The game files show the only prerequisite for a Transport Barge to be reaching the Classical Age, but this does not apply.
- The files also list the unit's cost as 30 Timber, 30 Wealth. This doesn't have any effect in gameplay, however.
- Besides having a cost for transport ships, the game files also show a value for the amount of spaces a unit can take in a transport, and all transport ships have a unit icon. This demonstrates that at some point, transport ships were going to be recruitable units, as is the case with most strategy games.
