First , you need to unlock the quest: Trading post founder which can be unlocked after unlocking several quests in Economic Development
(You can ignore this one if you play the game on the browser because you have more quests available)
Then, you need to research Trade Administration and Trade logistics (University)
The higher the distance you have to a special ressource on the map (e.g Papyrus), the higher are the ranks you need in Trade Administration and logistics.
YOU CANT attack an alliance or player who already has a trading post to get the achievement, so you need to find an empty one.
Simply click on the special resource icon you found on the map and click Trading post foundation and after a few minutes, your quest is done.
If there are any questions left, leave a comment and ill try to answer asap.
* Credits to Itzz Sh0wt1m3 for mentioning that you need Centralization 5to be able to research Trade Administration and Logistics
** Request: Here is a visual example how a trading post looks like. The special ressource shown in the picture is Papyrus (there are several more like wheat etc.)

qwxxI've built the trading post and I can access it. The achievement is still not popping. Any ideas?

IMeeresgeistYou unlock the achievement after you claim your reward for the quest named in the solution , simply log in from your browser to look for the quest ( you have access to 5 quests simultaneously on . If you claim your reward , switch to your WP , start the game and go to the achievements tab and bleep-bloop your cheevo will pop. It takes a few minutes though to synchronize:) I hope I could help you :)

Itzz Sh0wt1m3Might be good to mention that to be able to research trade administration and logistics, you need centralisation level 6.

Comrade SpannerAnyone else on realm 275, finding absolutely nothing anywhere?
Posted by Comrade Spanner on 06 Dec 15 at 17:57
IMeeresgeistIf you find nothing you need a higher rank of logistics or administration i guess /:

Comrade SpannerTurns out search is just shut. Now my problem is different: the barbarian camp on the resource. I keep getting warnings that I'll likely lose the battle, despite sending 100k troops against their 20k, is that normal?

Comrade Spanner*shit not shut

Emanant23can some put pic of trade post up or link to what it looks like having hard time finding
Posted by Emanant23 on 13 Dec 15 at 17:32
MARCELFiNKdeThe pic is in the solution now. fyi this is when the post is build. when you search for the ressource to build the post you have to look out for the round plate at the bottom of the outpost shown on the picture.

Arsenic 17OK, so it doesnt just take a few minutes. For me, the foundation took a few minutes, but that didnt complete the quest. AFter that, it took several hours for the trading post to be completed, which then triggered the challenge and acheivement

IMeeresgeistMy quest was done after maybe 10 minutes, I have shorter times on everything due to my high level and vip :)

JTSFR8Which is the economics tab?
Posted by JTSFR8 on 13 Jan 16 at 07:42
Gunstar Red^^^Economics tab is the third one from the left with a picture of a hammer. This is likely the most time consuming achievement in the game because it takes a lot to "dig out" and make it available. I had a trading post about 10 days before I was finally able to make this quest active. Some of the quests blocking it are: "Reach 100,000 wood / iron /stone production per hour.", "Organize 50 festivals", "Buy (and sell) 100,000 wood / iron / stone.", and "Build 10 Caravan Station in one holding." You can only do one festival per province per day, so always have one going.

JTSFR8Thanks, I'm on 100,000 stone and iron buying and 50 chests. Got 10 more to open. Just finished the lvl 10 caravan station

Moscow TimmyOne important note to add to guide: I founded the outpost but did not collect the achievement right away (I am trying to beat my friend's achievement streak and was waiting to pop the achievement on a day I didn't have time to play). After a certain amount of inactivity your empire is cleared from the servers and you must start over from scratch. So now I get to grind this achievement twice...

MIXHONGI m still waiting the mission..... I also finish a lots of missions but i still cannot get achievements missions.... I play twice too...

MARCELFiNKdeCan someone tell me the german menupoint for centralization? can't point it out
Posted by MARCELFiNKde on 12 Jul 16 at 08:01 does one even find an empty one? Seems like every special resource is taken by someone.
