Is it possible to purchase a settler during the build and trade phase, then load him onto a ship, move him, and then on a next turn convert him into a settlement during build phase?
Or is it considered to be a move and can it be done only during the movement phase?
The things I find confusing are:
- Manual says: you can not build after moving phase (spend resources) with exception of converting because it does not cost resources
- Manual doesn't say I can not convert during build phase
- Manual says I can convert anytime when my ship points hex
- Manual says I can build a ship on a hex occupied by pirate ship without paying tribute because its not moving (so why converting would be moving ?)
So based on this info I would assume that I can convert setter ship into settlement during my build phase if it is in a correct position already, and then I could upgrade and/or build other stuff.
