Settlers of Almaris - Seafarers Expansion
Hello there fellow LoTC players, the World/Tech Team is proud to inform you about the introduction of the Ferry Plugin on Almaris. This plugin will allow nations and independent settlements to purchase Fast Travel Routes between each other.
For a nation or independent charter to purchase a Fast Travel Route, they will need to make a /wreq asking for a designer or a World Team Manager to help them out with this.
The handler will calculate the cost of the fast travel route (0.5 mina per block as the crow flies rounding to the nearest 50 minas) and make sure both PROs agree.
The ticket handler will charge the price of the fast travel route and will set up the Fast Travel.
For the time being Fast Travel Points will be made only between nation capitals & other nations’ capitals or independent settlements. For example:
Urguan Capital & Norland Capital can build a fast travel route between them.
Urguan Capital & Marsumar can build a fast travel route between them.
Urguan Capital & Urguan Vassal settlement cannot build a fast travel route between them at this time.
There is no current limit on the number of fast travels a nation can purchase.
For the time being, fast travel can only be set up on lore-approved vehicles like ships or carriages.
This one is a bit obvious but for a nation to set up a fast travel route, there must be a roleplay agreement made between the PROs of both parties. This means Urguan can’t set up a fast travel route with Sutica if Sutica’s PRO doesn’t agree to it.
The Nations can split the cost to purchase a fast travel or the fees at whatever percentage they want, depending on the agreement
Nations are free to manage these fast travel routes as they see fit. If they wish to place a small tax for players to use the fast travel or leave it free it is up to them, all taxes paid using a fast travel go into the Nation treasury.
Each fast travel will cost Nations 25 minas a week in upkeep. Treasuries will be charged for their costs.
Thank you @Nickrocky213 for making this possible, @BasketWeaver for forcing him to do it, and @soul for making this post.
This system is subject to change with time & feedback. Fast Travel between settlements within a Nation will be addressed after the initial trial period of the plugin.
