Yes, that’s right. The Nova Golda Portal Network is closing down, well, it’s not a network anymore in the strictest sense of the word…
There are so many T5+ portal networks lately and the oort costs are absurdly high, so much so that I was unable to add more farm/mine spots to the portal gates AND somehow I kept selling goods in my shops but I seem to be stuck at around the same amount mostly due to oort costs.
Then an idea arose… And last week we finally decided to do it!
I’m proud to announce the collaboration of Nova Golda with the TNT T5+ Portal Network!
All NG Portal Gates have been changed and turned into…
Nova Golda Farm Hubs!
Yes, that’s right, all your (and mine) favourite farms and mines of the Nova Golda Network are still available!
How does this work?
Well at Nova Golda there used to be a big portal to our Serpensarindi gate and in the basements we had farm/mine portals. Now that big portal is still there but looks like this:
And it goes straight to TNT’s T5+ Network’s Serpensarindi portal gate!
This is how it looks on the other side:
All the TNT gates now have a 2x2 portal straight to the Nova Golda Farm/Mine Hub of that same planet:
The Serp one is a little hidden:
But at ALL the other gates they are on your right hand side if you come thru the gates (well, on left if you go backwards of course!)!
When you walk thru one of those Farm Hub portals it will look like this:
They all have the same layout. Farm/mine portals right in front of you and to the left.
To the right there is a door to outside and stairs to the basement. In the basements there’s room for more portals but also for personal portals.
As you can see @fidach has of course one at the Alcyon Hub!
This is how they look from the outside:
And of course the ones from Bob’s Farms are still all there too:
All the buildings are more or less done. Some the outside and/or roof still look like the old portal gate, some need a stair added to the basement and for some the basements aren’t converted to the new look yet. But they are fully functional now and I just didn’t want to wait any longer (yes, yes, I wanted to save on oort!)
One thing tho, TNT is still quite busy building the Besevrona and Flan gates so currently the Nova Golda Farm Hubs for those can be reached thru Serp (for Bese) and Alnitans (for Flan). Once they finish them the portals will change to the TNT ones!
Well, this is it for now. Since this will save me quite a bit of oort on a daily basis I will be adding more farm and mine spots soon!
Many thanks to TNT for the collaboration and especially @uni3k for setting up all the portals!
