The Omni Shop


#263

One more thing…I almost always choose convenience over a better deal. So if there was a shop selling what I need that was even slightly closer then I’m going there instead and I’ll even pay slightly more for the item.


#264

I will agree that in some area like Therka Market or Pixel Gate, there is such a maze of shops that it is hard to find things. Some owners do have good prices and keep their markets stocked, others not so much. So it becomes a treasure hunt to find things. It is easier to just go to one place.

I will also agree with the point that the ease of moving between planets makes it easier for a single shop or maybe even a few to have a large impact on the economy. The introduction of atmospheres might slow down the movement between planets, especially for newer players or those who do not want to invest in the skill points needed to survive.


#265

Oh yeah I forgot about that. I hope the atmosphere implementation adds a whole new degree of difficulty when traveling to different planets. Which hopefully will also add a new variance to shop keeping. I can’t wait :nerd_face:


#266

With the reset on skill points, I am holding back about 200 in order to use them for atmosphere when it is implemented.


#267

i love omni shop was hoping for spinn off store in my shopping center
named “omnis noob store” for beginning players so finally someone sells plotters that ill keep losing :grin:


#268

A large part of his success I think is in his pricing model. His prices are reasonable, and his request baskets aren’t insultingly low priced. 3 coin for gold ingots? I’d rather sell to omni for 75c or which ever his current offer is.


#269

I agree completely with the observation that the Universe is just too small to generate supply dynamics, but my feeling is that the answer is not to make portals less accessible (portals are extremely cool) but just to make the Universe bigger. We could do with 10x the worlds we have right now in my opinion, even with the current player count.

Also @Kal-El maybe a little unrelated but I can’t wait to make a glass dome city on a hazardous planet :smiley:


#270

Yeah I think that creating protected cities will be a great strategy once atmosphere is in place. Either domed or underground. Away from mobs and protected from rain and atmosphere.


#271

In a desperate attempt to protect my shop from pillaging customers I just went on a crazy shopping spree and bought nearly 1 000 000 coin’s worth of stuff from other shops throughout the oortverse. @smidge, @DoomsdayKnight and others: congrats on your newfound mega-wealth :wink: Be sure to use it to obliterate me… Also, you might be out of stock on many things.

I am restocked on many many things including:

  • Most types of rock, stone and refined rock/stone
  • Many decorative rocks and bricks
  • Most tool types with lots of chisels
  • Refineries
  • Iron ore, again.
  • Red gleam, refined red gleam, red gleam lanterns
  • Twisted wood timber
  • Shop stands
  • Coal
  • Many gem tools

I did not get enough though:

  • Now buying titanium ore @ 180 coin each (50 000 coin in basket)
  • Now buying oort stones @ 80 coin each (500 000 coin in basket)
  • Now buying all gems @ 300 coin each (500 000 coin in basket)

#272

Can’t believe I didn’t have them! I now sell hundreds of beacon plotters and plot removers for 1 coin each.


#273

Not sure what you mean by pillaging customers exactly :stuck_out_tongue: but I’m not complaining!

I’ll check my shop stands soon, it’ll be nice to have money to stock my request baskets at last. I hope you know that I’ll be spending a bunch of it right back at your shop - I’ve just discovered the joys of gem slingbows and will be buying more as soon as I can!
If you want to keep your stone stocked, I could be a supplier for you? Set up regular ‘shipments’ or something. Trading directly would reduce loss from tax, and I could offer a lower price than in my shop stands.
If you already have enough stone, then I can just keep stocking my own shop and it’ll be there when you need it :wink:

#274

This! People just walk in and buy everything :wink: .

I’m reasonably stocked on masonry right now, but I might be in touch. Got a feeling that with the improved leveling experience we’ll see a lot more customers around.


#275

You don’t need to worry - I won’t be buying all of your slingbows! With my current skill spec they seem to last me a very long time, so I’ll only ever need to own one or two at a time. I mainly want to buy the types I haven’t tried yet to see what they do! :slight_smile:
