I have some comments / feedback on starting out and things I observed so far , not sure where to post it so I put it here. I read the packages and thought I would be a farmer because I read
“ Short description
Producing agricultural products that can be used in the food industries is the foundation of every colony. “
So i started on Prom, and I made some stuff and then I realized the actual foundation of the colony is the MM you have all the basic items needed for the colony made out the air by the MM. So then I thought I would reset and try something different I found something that seemed like it would make more money on Prom this was when I found out the next thing with the game there is really no way to trade when you are starting out. I found some items I thought I could sell and bring something back to help out Prom well when I check the fuel cost it was over 8,000 for the round trip. So now I am just waiting to reset again because nothing really shows up at prom and basically the best place to build is where all the metal is.
Based on that I have some questions / comments on things I will just try to make it short.
1: is the MM staying in the game? Or is it some kind of stop gap thing? If it is staying then what is the point of Prom and any of the basic food items or why not have the MM be a real MM where it buys food on Prom and only sells what it buys on other planets. And also why is the MM not just selling everything then?
From design perspective you seem to have one area for metal, one area for gas and had one for food but the MM sells the rations and drinking waters so what is the point of the food planet now?
2: Why not have a way to ship 25 - 50 units of any of the basic items for cheap from the main trade hubs. Not anywhere else just a way to trade from main hub to main hub. By basic items I would say anything that is maybe only processed once. So ores,metals,basic consumables, gas, ect… not final products like prefabs.
If the MM can take over all the basic items I don’t see why there can’t be a MM for trade routes. Or just rework shipping in general so people can ship more items. I would guess the people producing H would rather be able to ship 50 – 100 units and sell their own gas for 200+ on other planets instead of only getting 90 – 100 by selling to a few players that have the money to buy it up Kotoa.
I tried to keep it short I can expand on any of it if anyone wants to talk about it.
