—In-game description

Cree Textile Craftsmanship is a technology in Age of Empires III that can be researched at a Trading Post built on a Cree settlement. Once researched, it reduces the wood cost of all buildings by 25%.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Cree Textile Craftsmanship is extremely useful for any civilization, but particularly those which have cards reducing structures' Wood cost even further.

  • The Advanced Trading Post Home City Card available to European and Native American civilizations is particularly useful with this technology, lowering the cost of Trading Post to a mere 87 wood.
  • The Advanced Mill card available to European civilizations can be stacked with the Land Grab card, and this upgrade (in the order listed) for free Mills.
    • The Land Grab card can then be stacked with the Advanced Plantation card and this upgrade (in the order listed) for 32 wood Plantations.
  • Asian civilizations also have the similar Trade Empire card which lowers the cost of Trading Posts to 137 wood if combined with this technology.
  • The WarChiefs maps also have cheaper Trading Posts (200 wood instead of the usual 250), so using the above methods, they will be even cheaper.
