"A German villager that is more expensive but gathers faster than a Settler."
In-game description

The Settler Wagon is an economic unit in Age of Empires III that is unique to the Germans and can only be shipped from the Home City until the Germantown Farmers Home City Card has been sent, which allows them to be trained at the Mill.

It gathers twice as fast than Settlers but also costs wood, uses up two population, and has a much lower train limit. Unlike French Coureurs des Bois, Settler Wagons do not replace Settlers.

In standard random map games, the Germans start with three Settler Wagons instead of Settlers.

Tasks Edit

Settler Wagons can be assigned with the same tasks as Settlers.

Trivia Edit

  • The Settler Wagon is an elderly man dressed in traditional Bavarian clothing. His wagon is being pulled by a mule or a donkey. The driver talks in Standard German with a gentle and kind voice.
  • The Settler Wagon resembles the Atlantean Citizen in Age of Mythology.
  • Just like the Citizen in Age of Mythology: The Titans, the content Settler Wagons carry changes depend on the resources they are collecting. The content at Plantations is the same as Mills and Berry Bushes, however.

History Edit

"Prairie Schooners and Conestoga Wagons were two types of covered wagons used by settlers and pioneers to cross the early frontiers of North America. Prairie Schooners were lighter and needed two or four horses or oxen to pull them. Conestoga Wagons were big, heavy wagons that needed teams of six or eight to pull them along. Before railroad tracks crisscrossed the Great Plains, Conestoga Wagons hauled most of the freight that went back and forth between the east and west coasts. Conestoga Wagons originated in a German area of Pennsylvania."
