Shop keepers are complaining about portal costs and no need to collaborate in game?
What about you guys create some centralized market place and do portal upkeep together and maybe start playing with prices now that regeneration has changed.
There is too many general stores around with same prices and aren’t easy to use that I have stop using almost all shops except one stone store that has been reliable source for what I have needed
Yes, to me it feels like it is starting to change now finally
I feel same way , running on PS shopping hubs is fun when taking it as exploration. But there is too many portals and to me many shops aren’t structured well. I used to go thru portals but now I judge shop what I see via portal and don’t even bother checking those out when I even get to this shopping mood.
I am glad that there is no game set values for prices, on early access time there were actually opportunity to just portal surf between settlements to buy cheap from one plinth and sell to someone else basket and that did benefit all sides. If players have huge amounts of stuff and still not selling and buying anything problem is most likely that price is not right or shop is not enough visible.
Fixed prices with NPCs is just fast and short fix of the problem.
If you don’t need something give it away or sell it cheap enough that is gone.
Other possible ways to fix this could be working as contractor for larger supplier or start building centralized market place.
Lol yeah, I don’t need another portal network, good market zone with moderate sized shops is something that I am looking for without portal hopping
