Space Transport Industry Status: Please read our response

Detailed Description:

I am aware that it is easy to purchase cargo shuttles, but a CEO or President who does not want to make as large an investment in aerospace industry as others already have, may find it more affordable to merely borrow a shuttle or so on the rare occasion. When creating a transport request, I propose there should be another button, or checkbox or similar, that allows a CEO/President to utilize another CEO/President's cargo shuttle[s] at different variable [competitive] rates of cost. When looking at owned cargo shuttles, a CEO/President that owns that shuttle should be able to set a rate at which the cargo shuttle can be utilized by other CEO/Presidents for transport requests. This would create a new industry of profit-driven space transport, as well allow access to transport resources between space stations and planets for smaller or less advanced countries/enterprises. It would be even better if there was a way to purchase resources, that would be transported via such method, without the requirement of directly owning a dock on that particular station (that is, of course if the actual owner of the borrowed cargo shuttle[s] has sufficient dock storage on that station, to handle the cargo before the shuttle arrives). I admit I am unsure precisely how that would be implemented into the current system, but perhaps the GMs can figure that out for us, so I thought I'd throw that out there as well. Lastly I'll summarize in that creating a space transport industry would allow for resources to be transported regularly and for profit by owners of cargo shuttles, as well more affordably for the borrower who only requires the occasional small transport requests for those less involved in space, than actually owning cargo shuttles directly. The process should be easy and likely would be something newer players would utilize before they eventually come to directly own cargo shuttles.

W3Creative reaction:

This is indeed an old issue and we have already looked into the possibility of having players offer transport services. To make it workable, the service must be profitable and it is not clear whether others will use it and how much of it while they already have space centers and all they need is several cargo shuttles and they can get 5 of them for one gold coin without the need to set up any space industry.
