    why do i have to upgrade both the ship and the lighthouse? what is the purpose of the lighthouse AFTER you first build it>?? my only guess is to make it difficult to be able to sail more tiles...does the lighthouse serve any purpose other than to just sit there and be upgraded as a condition for more tiles?

    You can place it in a corner so that people that attack you don't get 100% :p

    You need to upgrade the light house in order to be able to upgrade the ship

    The lighthouse also seems to be a clever way to offload some of the ship upgrade cost/upgrade time. Look how cheap it is to upgrade the ship, then look at the lighthouse.

    Agreed, but then a lot of us agree that some upgrade prices may be a bit steep.

    The main reason for the light house is as @Kelani pointed out, it off loads the upgrade time from the ship. You can't use the ship while it is upgrading, so imagine if that took 2 days, you'd be a bit stuck. For this reason the upgrade time is on the light house not the ship.
