Hello all! We are about halfway done with our remodel and we still have not stopped production! Previously, you may have known us by “Sly’s Gemporium” or “Jack & Sly’s Gemporium”. We have been looking to rebrand the store but wanted to keep the clever Gemporium name. We hope that the new name does not cause too much confusion. Come take a look at our progress:
We are still working on filling up all of our stands. We’ve noticed some large disparities in pricing among shops, previously and we wish to offer reliable data and prices for our suppliers and our buyers. Transparency is our number 1 goal, so feel free to ask us why something is priced the way it is if you don’t feel like it should be.
One of the ways which we plan on providing the devs with relevant information is by tracking our sales to find items that are sustainable based on current drop rates. With a community this small it isn’t right to say that this information won’t be skewed as it can be easily affected by others with large amounts of purchasing power/big buyouts, but it will be useful information for us at the least.
Before the update, there was a large disparity in the coin that you could get through the different harvesting methods. There just wasn’t enough usability with some of the drops. This is not as much of an issue anymore with the update. We know that one of the missions of the game is to keep every harvesting method generally viable. We have upped many of our asking process based on data that we’ve collected from different types of gatherers on different types of planets and have established asking prices with which we are 80%-90% confident with. We have introduced 4 corners in which different types of gatherers can sell their stuff and make 40k-60k per hour of harvesting. Take advantage of this while you can. We notice some harvesters keeping select items for themselves, so we will decrease these values and offer premiums on the coin we give out on a personal basis. If you wish to help us as a supplier we will roll out some recommended harvesting methods for our shop. We are also providing our suppliers with a 5k bonus for providing us with their yield per hour. Big data ain’t cheap!
We are offering our suppliers the chance to get any tool at 1500 coin off any gem tool purchase for each level 25 character they recommend to our shop. PM me if you would like to take advantage of this offer and I will briefly explain rules and restrictions. Thank you to Owl for getting the ball rolling on this idea.
Didn’t think we’d taken it far enough yet? Why not roleplay a little more shall we? Well, we’re offering anyone about a 3% monthly return on their investment for anybody who would like to purchase some equity in our shop. We will increase this number as I refine our reports You know where to find us if you’re interested!
