We think it should be 99 maybe 999 max.. and the rest should be carried in hold. so 9999 is a good compromise

This is confusing.  With the prices in Doubloons so high we need to stockpile them somewhere.  Would this be in your chest?  Are you suggesting that they be kept in the warehouse or clan warehouse?  I would think that just for ease of access, they be kept in one central location.  Am I not understanding your vision for this currency?

What's the actual purpose of money chest? I jumped to another port (it was a freeport) and when I opened the chest, I did not find dubloons there. Is it working as intended?

So, currency requires actual transportation now rather than being an abstract wallet? And it can be potentially taken?

Every player in a Basic Cutter could be worth Doubloons!

Looking forward to testing the patch after work. @admin Thanks for the hard work and the quick hotfixes for bugs that early testing has found! 😎

if it's this way, why does a money chest even still exist?

Well, I got 6k doubloons as compensation for my 10 buildings, then rebuilding the Shipyard to level 3, I lost 8000 doubloons.....fantastic.

so what do you get for sinking a player? nothing? 

My god man, read the notes. Combat marks and PvP marks are now the same thing (doubloons.) You get them for sinking players or sometimes you can loot them in ships. 

Keep up, I haven't even been in game yet and I understand this.

Fantastic and wrong. Shipyard requires 1k for lvl 2 and 5k for level 3. 
You probably opened academy as well or spend those doubloons elsewhere (or put them to warehouse)

Well, considering if I wanted to get all my crafting abilities back I HAD to build the Academy?

I could build those things before as standard, now I HAVE to have an Academy and a Workshop just to return to my previous crafting abilities...

Also, I had all 10 buildings and got 6k, there are people saying they got 12-14k extra doubloons....any reason for that?

Academy is a new building and did not exist before. We don't think its reasonable to compensate for something that did not exist
I still dont get how you lost 8000 doubloons if you lost none (you spent 6k on buildings and spent 2k on academy) - which cant really count as lost.

I understand that the devs put an insane amount of work into this (6+ months) and i am very thankful but it seems almost as if they did not even think about the currency stuff until 1 hr before the patch. 

PvP reward is the same as before (just renamed to Doubloon) now players get 900 PvP marks (doubloons) for sinking 10 ships in PvE. They must be trolling. 

The main issue I see is almost all of the problems that have been expressed here in this thread are the same problems that were expressed in the "testing" threads we've been doing on the test realm for the past few weeks.  Did nothing change?  What was the point of the test realm if not to hammer out some of the issues before you patch.

One of the reasons I left previously was that the devs consistently failed to act on player feedback... has this changed? I just figured it was the accepted way things were at this point.

@admin honestly if you want to really test out the new economy, I vote for wiping everything. Put everybody back at zero. Enough folks are bitching anyway you might as well go whole hog.

i guess they had to test it with a bigger player base ;)

Excuse me? I need the academy to actually be able to craft the books that I could craft NORMALLY before the patc.

 

How is that not a REQUIREMENT?

You can only get compensation for buildings you had before the patch. I doubt you had this building before the patch. Several new buildings were introduced this patch - its in the patch notes. Forge did not exist before

Everyone received reals in the amount to open the wiped buildings. Reals were applied to your account. If you had a shipyard lvl 3 you also received 6k for every lvl 3 shipyard you had.

Only shipyard required doubloons and thats why people are talking about doubloons compensation (people who had shipyard).

I cannot see where the costs to reopen buildings was added to redeemables. I can only see the 2000 dubloons that everyone gets. To get my shipyard to level 2 now requires 1000 dubloons and the get it to level 3 requires 5000 dubloons, so I am still basically 4000 dubloons short and that is not counting the reals cost for the upgrade.
