  1. No, this would create too many problems. Say you're nearly out of cash, you undock on your first rate, but now you're stuck on OW and can't dock up? Thats absurd. If you want operating costs for large ships, tie the costs to crew or something like that. Otherwise you'll end up with people that are stuck on the OW outside some freeport in an expensive ship, and they will lose it and get mad and possibly quit.
  2. Heres a link to a guide on the easiest way to do it https://www.competethemes.com/blog/create-site-like-craigslist/ They quote roughly $200 to start off, and $80-100 a year after that, to keep the site hosted.
  3. It wouldn't be terribly difficult, but the key would be having to pay to host the site. That's what I was hoping to do originally, but I didn't feel like paying for an experiment. This version is completely free to maintain. If someone has a way to do it for free though, we can chat about it
  4. Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I'll ask this generally to anyone reading, for a bounty system, would you prefer the style where: (A) The 3rd party (me and anyone helping me) accepts the bounty, then gives it out when completed. (B) You contact the bounty poster to claim your reward. Option (A) would be more official, but require more work. I'd be able to ensure all bounties were legitimate. (B) Would be less in my control, more of an honor system.
  5. Update: I hit a wall with this idea, as I didn't have a good place to display all these photos in a manner that was user friendly. However, while working on my NA Marketplace Idea, I realized I can include all the paint photos submitted much more easily. Anyway, check out the gallery on the side here - https://sites.google.com/view/namarketplace/paint-collection It is still a work in progress, as I need to collect a lot more ships, but its still fun to look at Also, if you have more painted ships that you want me to add to the website, post them here or send them to me in PM. Thanks!
  6. Update: Streamlined the chart display system. Now instead of updating every 5 minutes, the charts should update instantly. They should also be more friendly to mobile users. Also embedded the two forms into the website, creating less pages you need to jump between.
  7. I'm pretty sure he found the submission form, because thats the only place you have to select a ship. Anyway, you have a good point, i'll update the description.
  8. Might have misunderstood a bit. You use the website to view whats available. Link - https://sites.google.com/view/namarketplace/auction-house Currently nothing is there, as I just reset everything an hour ago to allow for real submissions. I edited the descriptions of the links a bit to make it clearer.
  9. Main post updated. I removed the poll, as it was extremely supportive, and also because I completed the original goal of the project while I waited This system is ready to go, give it a try! I plan on building upon this idea if it ends up getting used, I can expand into several other sections, including resources/woods/etc. Who knows, maybe I can even add a bounty system 🤔
  10. Updated the links on this forum post, didn't notice till now that I broke some of them along the way 😁 Also added sections for selling ships and buying/selling mods and books. Everything should be nearly ready to be put to use, getting close
  11. Ah yes, Thank you. Looks like I left out PB bonuses on the final result, and yeah ill add it as an easy select option.
  12. The problem is that butly contracts for ships have been suggested many times, and never added. Also this allows people to avoid the frustration of paying the tax on buy contracts for modules. Yes the issue is you need to find the person to arrange a trade, but I think it's better than spamming global chat looking for a buyer/seller.
  13. That's a fair point. What made me think of this was the game RuneScape back before they added a system called the GE. People would just stand around yelling what they were buying/selling for hours. Then a website where people could post buy/sell stuff came out, and started getting really popular. You never know, even solving half the problem might be useful
  14. Well thats honestly what I've tried to do here.... Only difference is your example sounds more applicable to a forum post. I can definitely add a more broad submission system, but to start off I wanted to show how this could work for requesting or selling specific items and ship builds.
  15. [UPDATED] - 9/15/2019: Streamlined the chart display system. Now instead of updating every 5 minutes, the charts should update instantly. They should also be more friendly to mobile users. Basic Idea: The idea behind this is simple. You submit your buy/sell order using the google form. That info is then automatically processed in g-sheets and loaded to a website where anyone can view the items/ships up for sale, or crafters can see who is requesting which ships/item. When you use the google form, you are required to enter a 4 digit pin. Once the order is filled, you can go to the g-sheet, enter their pin, and the order is hidden and removed from the website. Want to see whats been posted, or want to submit something yourself? Take a look at the website (link below). Everything is easily accessed from there. Website Link - https://sites.google.com/view/namarketplace/home Link to the google spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1O1M6aMs-mlMLpOG2nhZBXQycJOQYDTLNKX-BhMIHchM/edit?usp=sharing Give it a try! Everything is ready to go. I currently cannot get in-game to advertise, so if you like this project, feel free to help spread the word. I would suggest directing people to this post, or to the website itself.
