After using the Royal Supplier, does the player still get to ship immediately?
Yes. According to the rules when it's the supplier's owners FIRST turn to ship, BEFORE he ships anything, he has the option of placing goods in the royal warehouse in exchange for VPs. One good per each noble he has, and each good must be different from each other. This means that a player's max would be 5 assuming that players produced at least one of each good and has at least 5 nobles on his island.
THEN he immediately ships normally.
