Self-Sustaining Production Edit

Self sustaining production is the fact that several towns throughout the Port Royale 3 world produce a secondary product like textiles, ropes or meat and and the necessary raw materials as well. Tertiary products like clothing, rum or bread, which need two or more materials do not normally have any self-sustaining production sites. The only exception is Roatan, which can produce bread completely autonomously, as it produces both wheat and sugar.

List of self-sustaining industries Edit

  • Corpus Christi
  • Belize
  • Cartagena
  • Tampa
  • Biloxi

  • Evangelista
  • Grenada
  • Isabella
  • Eleuthera

Bread Edit

Semi Self-Sustaining Industries Edit

While, with the exception of bread production at Roatan, there are no self-sustaining industries for tertiary goods like tools, clothing or rum, there are cities that lack only a single material to become self-sustaining. That one ingredient can be produced autonomously in a self-sustaining town or is a primary material, like Wood, Sugar or Cotton.

Example: Georgetown

Georgetown produces Wood, Tools, Brick, Wheat and Cocoa. Delivering metal, either from one of the self-sustaining metal producers or by exporting wood to nearby St. Lucia or Puerto Cabello and taking back metal in return, Georgetown becomes entirely self-sustaining. It not only produces the two primary building materials, it also can produce tools for the cocoa production from the delivered metal.

List of semi self-sustaining towns Edit

This is a list of towns that can produce all their five goods through delivery of a single primary or secondary good that can be produced by a single other city.

  • Georgetown (metal)
  • Corpus Christi (textiles)
  • Tampa (textiles)
  • Evangelista (Cotton)
  • St. Augustine (textiles)
  • Eleuthera (Cotton)
  • Andross (Hemp)
  • Tortuga (Wood)
  • Isabella (Cotton)

These town offer very lucrative options. For instance, the following route

Corpus Christi (Wood) -> Tortuga (Cotton) -> Isabella (Textiles)

makes all three towns entirely self-sustaining and yields the following goods (12 of 20) from just three towns:

Wood, wheat, metal, dyes, clothes, sugar, hemp, cotton, tobacco, rum, textiles, ropes
