Hello Asylum,
Over the last few months we have seen a large quantity of cash enter the islands economy. In this patch we have taken steps to slow some of the more steady faucets to our economy. We also have taken this opportunity to slightly reduce the influence of perks & talents normally held exclusively by long standing gangs and veteran players. Doing this allows us to raise the base prices on most drugs closing the wage gap a bit between veteran and new players. We continue to monitor the logs and will adjust as necessary.

Historically speaking, when pills are touched, the sheets are too. I was wondering if the sell price changed with the pills too.

Probably just the pills. Considering how much quicker you can do just pills with just refining, you could make about as much if not more as doing sheets by just doing pills. One box truck of the pills would sell for ~200k, and take less than an hour to do.

how are you going to make measures to decrease money then raise the sell value of everything and how much money you get from events? am I missing something?

Its my understanding and belief that the number way to increase population on the server is to increase communication and interaction between players.  Over the last little bit most of the OG 4 money making drugs were relatively not worth it to the new more isolated money making methods.  

By implementing the new processor and increasing prices of OG drugs while decreasing house weed and pills, they are working towards that goal.  Why would people do meth and coke when you can sit in your house or at any drug dealer and make more money.  More interaction means more death and destruction.  Death is good

Nice work. My honest thoughts:

  • These monetary changes will not have a significant impact on the economy, though I still don't understand why people are obsessed that this is a problem. A $20 price difference of a first aid kit is not gonna make a difference at all. Especially not when a certain pensioner who occupies the richest slot on the server spends his day and night grinding more money for absolutely no reason
  • The purification factory now replaces Kav weed processor & sheet factory as the place where gimps sit in a spot for the entire day clicking heads and making a fortune, again not great for the economy.
  • The inventory & mental asylum changes make the patch worthwhile on their own. Stupendous confectionary to be frank
  • Speeding tickets just need to go as a whole, I don't see any value added by these changes.
  • Emporium roof change is a good thing, not sure about the trade-off that you'll make more money from it now, but OK
  • The rest is decent but it feels like a lot of padding and changing prices for the sake of changing and nothing that really will have an impact.

My opinion will mean very little here as I've just started playing regularly recently after coming back from playing a bit a few years back, however I don't think the purification location is a great idea. With greenhouses and wax, as a new player I felt like it gave me a real chance to actually be able to compete with some of the more veteran players with rebel gear/vehicles by being able to make money to stay up to speed. Not to mention, I primarily play alone or sometimes with a single friend because I am new, so going to a purification location for ALL drugs is going to be a disaster for someone like me. At weed processing, because weed isn't as lucrative as the other drugs, the times I've met folks there they've been pleasant so far, only one or two times have altercations ever broken out. Every time I try to do runs to any other drug, trouble always comes.

 

I think at least removing the Golden Wax from the purification requirement and allowing double processing at weed but instead of Wax selling for $1200 a piece, lowering it to 900-1000 would allow new players like myself feel like I can actually make enough money to keep up.

moving bigger gangs to the purification factory to fight for processing there means your normal runs of drugs will be less camped etc meaning they will generate more money for newer players in the long run

I think that's the point though. A higher concentration of people all getting butt blasted and losing their shit is a pretty good way to fix the economy.

The smaller drugs or just not fully processing will probably be safer and, realistically, more profitable if you're not in a huge gang.

I think the change is a good compromise

    • Sell price
      • Cocaine bricks 960 -> 700

Why nerf the coke brick sale price? You basically just made it harder while reducing the sale price by $260.

Buffing Heisenberg meth makes sense due to how far you must travel to complete the process but why buff regular meth and not, at the very least, leave coke bricks at $960?

You could still make the argument that meth is harder to do than coke (it is) but the sale price of bricks is complete dog shit now given you have to do it across 3 locations.

Lots of change happening this patch. I can't predict exactly how players will react but my suspicion is at least some players will move away from LSD pills. Purification factory is 4km away from coke pro (as the crow flies) I was concerned that coke bricks being higher would result in an endless wave of coke brick running hatchbacks. Its very well possible its a bit light on payout. Its also entirely possible the G wax runners might decide they hate me because i just devalued their homes and decide not to do G wax anymore. People might look at heisen and say the travel isnt worth the pay. If those two things happen it means 0 competition at the purification factory. All these numbers are subject to change as we collect data and see how players react.

Surprisingly non-shit response. Thank you for the details @Patato I guess we will just have to see how everything plays out.
