  • Howdy, folks!
Some liked the idea of doing it for real money...others hated it.

Your opinion on the whole subject matter??

I'm going to leave this one for a bit and see what other folks have to say about it.

I hope that traditional economy doesn't play a big role in ST:O, at least when its just Federation playable.  The Federation, by and large, isn't about making money off of other Feds.  (Something my government could learn a thing or two about).

Rather, if trade between players is a necessary issue, trading in prestige, favors and relationships with NPCs could be an interesting new type of economy. Spending Prestige to get a greater ship class or weapon system rather 'credits' or whatever.  Giving 'favor points' in exchange for a set of skilled Science Department NPCs that will keep your ships save from crazy radiation.

I think the option to trade holodeck programs for replicator rations should be there, but I don't think that should be the major economy in ST:O.  A new player should be able to go up to a replicator or holodeck and do/get whatsoever they want.  Federation members should never have a lack of credits be a hindrance to advancement.

OK Well, Firstly - IT depends how flexible the devs are when it comes to allowing people to create holoprograms.

I dont thiink we should be able to sell them for real money - maybe for credits or something. Perhaps if you get enough credits you can "purchase" additional game time.......
