Welcome to Seaport's 3rd Birthday Event! In this event, Uncle Seaport returns to give you 20 contracts. After that, Rudolf Diesel will offer you another 30 contracts. Barrels are replaced by birthday cakes, and peanuts are farmed for peanut oil which powers the newly introduced motor ships!
Update 13 November 2018: Two new non-event ships were added, the Beaver and the HMS Wolverine. No new event content was added, but the travel time to Rudolf Diesel's contracts was reduced from 2 hours to 1 hour.
Update 20 November 2018: This was a big, big update and it will take some time to update all the information on the Wikia. Let's have a look:
All the contracts in this event are based on the player's level. In contrast to the Halloween Event, your total ship capacity does not influence these numbers. To calculate the exact material requirements and rewards of Uncle Seaport's contracts, visit Seaport Help - Uncle Seaport.
How are you doing, captain? Have you been taking care of my port? Well, it's your port now, I guess. Let's have some warm fish soup and talk about the old times when you arrived here.
You are probably asking why I have come to visit you again? Just look at my hat. We are celebrating the third birthday of our wonderful port! Now go buy yourself such a hat too.
You might not have been here for so long but I remember the humble beginnings. We had to start from scratch building the first house and the first ship from scraps of wood.
I can see you have moved on and your port has become a great modern town. Don't forget to upgrade your port continually. Progress is everything in the marine business and everywhere else too.
So let's prepare the Seaport birthday party. Bring balloons and party hats. It will be in a few days. You and all your sailors are invited.
Present and more
There is a fantastic birthday present waiting for you. But that's not all. I will keep it a secret for now. Let me just say you will need a lot of materials for new ships, captain.
What would be a birthday party without some tasty snacks? How about peanuts? Everyone loves the salty crunchy nuts and I am no exception.
Something more filling should be on the tables too. For a Seaport party, it should be some seafood. And show me a sailor who does not like fish.
I think the best place for the party is the Town Hall. But is it large enough? How about you upgrade her once more. Just to be sure we all will fit in.
The Town Hall is ready for the celebration. We just need something to drink and then we can celebrate. So let's go buy some drinks for the party.
It's time I told you about the surprise. You have a magnificent fleet but the technological progress is going further. I have arranged a visit by Mr. Rudolf Diesel. He will help you make some great ships.
Mr. Diesel has made a revolution in the industry. He has constructed a motor run by oil. It's much more powerful than a steam engine. We must get this invention for our port!
Start of new age
The motor ships are going to make our work so much easier. We just need to gain knowledge from Mr. Diesel and start constructing new vessels. Let me speak to your sailors to prepare them for this too.
Let's prepare some food for our guest. We want him to feel welcome in our port. Well, technically it's your port now and I am a guest now too. So I might just eat some of that food too.
A place to work
Mr. Diesel will need a workshop where he can do his magic. Let's build it now so he can get to work as soon as he arrives.
I have acquired some secret information. It seems Mr. Diesel loves peanuts. He has ordered tons of them. Maybe he is secretly keeping an elephant but I doubt that.
Tomorrow is the day
I hope everything is ready because our guest will arrive tomorrow. We should have some finances at hand in case he needs something for his research.
It's up to you
I am sure you can handle the cooperation with Mr. Diesel on your own. You are the captain and master of the port after all. I will just jump on my boat and go as soon as she is repaired.
My boat is ready to take me back home. And the future is already knocking on your door. Or maybe it's just Mr. Diesel. I can't wait to see the first motor ship in your fleet.
See you later, captain! And just in case, bring more peanuts. I want Mr. Diesel to feel like at home.
Until later, captain! I hope we will see each other again next year. Have fun with Mr. Diesel.
