The Harbourmaster's Office is a building which provides bonuses to coastal buildings within range, based on items being equipped into its three item slots. It is the equivalent of the Trade Union and Town Hall buildings for items that affect coastal buildings.

How to use

When placing a Harbourmaster's Office, a circle will be shown in a wide radius around the building, indicating which coastal buildings will be affected by the items placed within it. A Harbourmaster's Office effect range cannot overlap that of another Harbourmaster's Office (but can overlap the ranges of Trade Union and Town Hall buildings), limiting item effects to a maximum of three per coastal building. Until items are placed into the item slots of a Harbourmaster's Office, the building itself will have no effect.

Once placed, clicking on the Harbourmaster's Office will bring up three empty item slots. Clicking on one of these item slots allows the player to select an item from those currently available in the Items tab of that island's warehouses. Once an item is socketed, it can be removed by right-clicking the item, which will place it back into the island's warehouse item storage. Certain items can be activated by left clicking them once socketed, and will provide their bonus for a specific duration (typically being destroyed after use).

After being built, selecting the Harbourmaster's Office will highlight all buildings to which it is currently applying an item effect. When building production buildings within range of a Trade Union, the Harbourmaster's Office will display a light outline to indicate it is within range to provide item effects.

Items which can be slotted into a Harbourmaster's Office can have different effects on buildings within range, primarily focused around increasing the strength of defences, increasing the chance at special visitors to the Public Mooring, or improving nearby coastal production buildings. Most items only apply to certain types of buildings, which are listed on the tooltip for the item.

Most item effects are additive; Having two items slotted that both apply a +25% production effect would provide +150% bonus to production buildings within range (meaning that those production buildings would run at 140% speed if no other modifiers were active, running 1.5 times as fast, producting 1.5 times as many items and requiring 1.5 times as many resources, compared to a similar building that is not within range of the Harbourmaster's Office).
