Wanted to send this in as an entry for devlog 300 but had no time this week.
Corporate Warehouse - Corporate Project - 5 Level - can be build once per Planet
Each level adds 100 m³/t
The corporate warehouse is an inventory that is shared among every corporation member. Like a pantry in a village. Corporation Members can deposit and withdraw material.
The goal of the warehouse is to make cooperation between members easier.
Construction cost: Not to cheap but also not to expensive.
This sounds like a great perk for corporations, however as described it is susceptible to COLIQ abuse. So it may need to be restricted to PRO/Basic players, at which point it’s not really much more convenient than the LM.
Alternatively, there could be some kind of rule like: A company (not a player account, but their company) has to be 30 days old before it can use the corporate warehouse. This may be adequate to prevent any abuse from free accounts.
This would be so useful for my corp, currently I hire a warehouse just to separate out corp goods from the stuff for my production lines.
This could be a part of a larger feature as well:
Corp HQ levels
Similar to company HQ levels. Each level of Corp HQ adds an additional “Office Permit” - you build a corp office and add warehouses to a corp office. Limited number of planets based on corp hq.
Corp office provides a 5% single industry bonus with weekly upkeep (HQ is 10% to all, more levels gives a bigger bonus with unused offices just like company HQs)
Level 0 corp HQ (not built anywhere) provides 3 corp office permits.
Other corp office building ideas (in addition to the shared warehouse):
- corp housing: shared housing (allows some workers to be housed using this building instead of company - added to, pulled from, and redistributed as part of POPI)
This would be a great way to do it. In our corp we have a person designated as a living corp warehouse on each planet. It’s kind of a pain on RL timing, because they always need to be there to tender out supplies to every single person that needs them.
Yeah we do the same thing kinda but I can’t be awake all the time. Tho we only store consumables, it would be very useful.
