So. Playing one of the Seafaring maps. And I never see a Port icon. I make ships, and I cant move. And then I can see the AI ship move, and the last game I played they even colonized an island.

So how do you use ships?

I'd recommend to play the seafaring tutorial. Does that help you?

you need to make ports to use ships, and you need to launch expeditions from ports to send your ships to ccolonize. the seafaring tutorial should explain in more details

I had the same problem when first trying seafaring. If you build too close to the port space, it disappears. In my case, I played the same map over and over again, never finding a port space because I built a sentry close to it. By expanding in a different direction, I eventually revealed the port space and built on it. I was playing Barbarians but that shouldn't matter. Hope this helps.

Yes, we have the port space discovery bug which is in fact what LeightonMan had described.
