Lower Costs to Buy Products in Space Status: Too complex

Detailed Description:

For a player to be able to buy products in space they need to buy or lease a docking station for 200 GCs or 5 GCs respectively. This puts players off and means there is little trading done in space. I suggest that players who are buying products do not need a docking station - the products they buy are instead reserved for them in a storage facility on the docking station and that they pay a small commission in game money which is taken from the country where the shuttle was launched from. They then have a limited time to collect all of the products they have bought. Only players selling products would need docking stations. Vote yes for lower costs to buyers.

32 gamers voted for the proposal.
8 gamers voted against the proposal.

The proposal has been ACCEPTED.

W3Creative reaction:

The proposal turns a simple function into one with many rules, limited periods, game money, commission etc. This is a bad idea. If shuttles are not at the space station (docked), there is no way to see how far they are and when the product exchange can take place with all the follow up problems and features that will be needed to solve it.

There will be more reasons to trade in space and we expect many more players to join. We will delay any change until we see how it works.

However, we will look into a reduction in the cost of using cargo shuttles as this is a recurring cost that should not end up too high, compared to the value of the products being traded.
