Car prices

7 posts in this topic

I have seen you are updating vehicle prices significantly. One of the main problems of the game at the moment is that vehicle price. I would assume you will also adjust weapon/magazine prices, but just in case you do not:

Vehicle resale price is too high. Currently it depends on the map and availability of loot and missions, but the most effective way of getting money especially if you only have 1/2 people on is to get a lifting chopper and sell vehicles. A seemingly obvious way of combating this is to restrict the number of fresh spawn vehicles, but that makes the problem even larger because fresh starts now have no way of bootstrapping to money (you need a car to collect and sell loot).

If you increase the prices of cars you make it harder for people to start on a server and easier for people that have already started to get money. To the extent that they no longer care about it and are no longer motivated by it to play. Per https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PsDxUYBxmiQl-HSTtxj3PHWLq9R0kH0QOoZnNNe4ZhQ/edit#gid=0 and assuming a default 0.5 buy/sell ratio, one can make ~6k poptabs by selling an offroad. That is roughly what one makes by clearing one of the commonly-used missions, it is however much faster and safer to get a lift to the car in a helicopter and drive back or simply lift it in with a helicopter.

So please, either make the default buy/sell ratio something like .2, or drop the car prices. In fact, the default car (resale) prices are already too high.

We have no random spawning vehicles anymore and already reduced our sales price to 20% of the buy price. Whenever we want a ride, we ambush an AI patrol and steal one. Great fun. Especially when reinforcements arrive and you get in over your head.

So, basically, yeah, talk to your server admins as everything you mentioned is configurable.

My suggestion is not relevant to concrete servers. It is useful to have defaults set to reasonable values so that the stock game is enjoyable.

I dont agree, making the return for selling cars 0.2 would make fighting over vehicles (other than yours, so you can sell them), a waste of time, since rish outweights reward. It would basicly take away one of the most intens part of pvp.

(Hope it makes sense)
