I didn't make it!
Apologies if i am being dim but can anyone tell me how to get settler units into ships please.
7th December 2003
Put the ship next to a costal square and let the unit move towards the ship. Keep in mind that not all ships can transport all units. http://www.civfanatics.com/civ4/info/units/ shows which ships can transport what sort of unit.
And to unload them, either tell the ship to run aground (which won't make it do so, but it will make its cargo disembark;)) or select the unit(s) individually and move them.
