Thread: The Colonia Exodus - Trade

    The Colonia Exodus - Trade

    Summary

    System: Einheriar
    Station: Pilkington Orbital (Coriolis Starport, large pads available, 1,009 Ls from main star, 22,005 Ly from Sol)
    Objective: Deliver Evacuation Shelters, Auto Fabricators and Power Generators
    Time limit: 14th December 3303 @ 15:00 UTC


    Description

    Despite the repeated assurances of the galactic authorities, which have endeavoured to downplay the scale of the Thargoid threat, it is clear that many of those in the core systems feel less than secure. This is evidenced by the huge numbers of citizens fleeing to Colonia, eager to escape the Thargoids.

    In response to this development, the Colonia Council issued the following statement:
    Colonia has always been a haven, and we would never deny entry to those fleeing danger. But if we are to provide people with homes and employment, we must build. We have therefore made plans to establish a number of new outposts throughout Colonia, to support our new neighbours.

    Unfortunately, the urgency of the situation means we cannot rely on our usual trade partners, and we are therefore turning to the galactic community for support. We have placed an open order for a range of construction materials, and have set aside considerable premiums for pilots who deliver these goods to Pilkington Orbital in the Einheriar system.
    The campaigns begin on the 7th of December 3303 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

    To be eligible for rewards you must sign up as an active participant before delivering Evacuation Shelters, Auto Fabricators and Power Generators to Pilkington Orbital in the Einheriar system.

    Be aware that faction-state changes, UA bombing and other disruptive events can negatively impact markets and station services, and could prevent the initiative from running smoothly.

    Not much point in the rest of us turning up then!

    I'm sorry to say that but...

    "We need new construction materials! Hey, community commanders, would you be so kind to pick them form the station at 10LY from my home and bringing them here?"

    Honestly, Frontier Devs, couldn't we get an especial commodity for this? For instance "Colonia Migrants" (you need a bulk passenger ship to bring them to Colonia), "Especial migration shelters" (which you have to pick from the Bubble and fly them all the way to Colonia), "Advanced medicines" (Hey, Colonia has only been around two years, it is unlikely that they have modern medicine production facilities in place!), etc.

    In other words, if the story says that Colonia needs resources, and it is implicit that they should come from the bubble... Can you make them actually COME from the bubble, please? And maybe give 2 weeks for the Community, so people actually have time to do one or two fully-loaded travels to Colonia from the Bubble?

    Thank you!

    Have some rep. A week is a gross assumption that we are all full-time at this game and have nothing else to do It's not the first time this has been raised, either, is it FD?

    This type of CG would vastly benefit from multiple stations supporting it. At least one in Colonia and one in the bubble.

    It will not. The Colonia Stations will become the main source of the CG, and people will simply not do the whole trip to Colonia because of this CG. Maybe for roleplay reasons, but not for the CG itself. You want to do a long range trade CG? Then do it properly!

    I think you're making an incorrect assumption here about what's been called for - and indeed, who these CGs are for. What Colonia needs is its entire domestic stockpile and production of certain items rapidly moving to a single point. If anyone wants to drag a cargo hold of them up from Sol ... well, that's very nice and will certainly be appreciated, but it's not what will be determining how far the CG gets.

    Colonia's economy is small but specialised - it is ~15% High-Tech stations, compared with only 3% in the Sol bubble - Advanced Medicines are readily available in the quantities required by a colony of only 7.5 million people. Other areas of relative specialism are Tourism (of course) and Services, while Colony and to an smaller extent Industrial are the ones we have noticeably less of.

    I agree it's a bit pointless to cart some stuffs 20Kly, when they are already available there.

    I hope that there will be some effort put into the CG mechanics with the Beyond series of updates. It would be nice to have long range passenger CGs for this type of thing.

    The supplies of the requested items in Colonia is a bit sparse - they will soon run out. Unless I've misread eddb horribly.

    Isn't it nice, that I've arrived in my multirole Corvette a couple of days ago?

    Why not have a trader class vessel that is in the bubble for the week and allow us to land and sell our supplies to, and when the week is up said vessel would jump to colonia with the resources we provided. This way we wouldn't have to take the long trip to colonia and people with lives outside this game would be able to participate.

    Would be perfect if:

    resource collection point in the bubble to gather the supplies then next week a transport CG from the bubble to colonia, special commodity, 'colonia supplies' only available from the collection point station.

    But hey, what do I know...
