I have a big negative balance. If I keep playing that game, it’ll be huge. Don’t think I can get a positive balance with that game.
The first stuff you should build, is stuff that makes goods that you can export. I wouldn’t even build housing until I have a shitload of plantations maybe mines too. Just go to the trade thing, and see what’s available to export, then build stuff to do that. If you just guess, you’ll probably get a negative balance.
