The Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post is a special building in Civilization VI.

Game Info Edit

Whenever a civilization finishes a TradeRoute6 Trade Route to a certain city for the first time (that is, the route runs its allotted number of turns), it creates a Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post in the City Center district of the destination city. Your merchants use the connections they've established and buy some property there, where they create a permanent support station for future commercial activities. This post has the following effects:

  • It extends the range of TradeRoute6 Trade Routes which pass through the city by 15 tiles, which is also the base trade route range. If a TradeRoute6 Trade Route reaches a city with a Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post, it may then continue up to fifteen additional tiles to reach another city. If that city also has a Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post, the route may extend a further fifteen tiles, and so on.
  • Each Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post also adds +1 Civ6Gold Gold to every route originating in the trader civilization which passes through this city.

Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Posts can exist in both foreign and domestic cities, and multiple civilizations can establish Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Posts in the same city. Civilizations cannot make use of Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Posts established by other civilizations.

Strategy Edit

Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Posts that are in foreign cities are vital for extending trade range far beyond a civilization's borders. Domestic Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Posts can allow a particularly productive core city to supply a developing border city directly, and can also enable wealthy core cities to trade directly with foreign cities.

All Roads Lead to Rome, the Roman civilization ability, gives a further +1 Civ6Gold Gold to Roman TradeRoute6 Trade Routes which pass through a Roman city with a Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post. It also provides a free Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post to every city Rome founds or captures, as well as a road if the city is within trade range of the Capital6 Capital. This ensures all Roman TradeRoute6 Trade Routes, especially those originating in the Capital6 Capital, have long ranges and a wide choice of destination cities.

Örtöö, the Mongolian civilization ability, instantly creates a Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post in any city to which the Mongolians send a TradeRoute6 Trade Route and provides them with an extra level of DiplomaticVisibility6 Diplomatic Visibility with any civilization that has a Mongolian Trading Post (Civ6) Trading Post in at least one of its cities.
