Creating a trade empire in Mount & Blade II Bannerlord is one of the best sources of passive income when you don’t have tons of cities feeding you taxes. Yet, it can be a bit daunting.
Due to the complex dynamic economy of the game, you need to buy the right workshops for the resources provided by nearby villages, and also make sure that their finished products are in high demand within the city itself.
While balancing it isn’t easy, today Reddit User entirelyalive posted an extremely useful map showing all trade resources produced by all villages on the game’s massive map (using another posted on the official forums by Vesper_ as a base).
You can take a look at what it looks like below, but I advise downloading the full-size version from Reddit, as it’s much more readable.
While the game is still in early access, the complex and dynamic simulation of the economy certainly shows its potential very nicely, and hopefully, this map will help you plan your trade empire more easily.
The map is updated to version 1.1.0, which was released in the new beta branch yesterday.
