Plans for Alkaid Island
On behalf of Your Flag, we thank all those who supported us today!

Island Plans


Shoppes:

We plan on restoring Alkaid. Here is how we will do it:

This week, we will construct 2 IM's. We have examined Alkaid's capacity to produce CB's and have concluded that the levels of production and supply is insufficient, impeding the healthy process of nearby expeditions and pillages.

The following week, we plan to construct a flag SY for the repair of ships. Further island development may following. We highly value the business of Alkaid's shop & stall owners. Therefore, all of our actions will be geared with their interests in mind.

After receiving commentary on the newly placed IM shop, I would like to clear this up now, as I will not be addressing this issue again. All new shops constructed will follow the island Primates theme.

Primates: "A mammal of the order Primates, which includes the anthropoids and prosimians, characterized by refined development of the hands and feet, a shortened snout, and a large brain." Therefore, to answer a question that arose earlier, Gorillas are primates.

For those interested in learning more about primates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primate


What if a shoppe dusts?

Dusted Shops will be replaced without a refund. A new shop will be erected in it's place.

Taxes:

We will not be rasing taxes higher than they currently are, 30%. Taxes will be lowered to 25% after 1 week of island control. We will be offering a 50% tax refund on all taxes during the first week of the ocean merger.

Events:
To be announced.
Alkaid Event Blockades will be scheduled upon request or during certain competitions.

I'll let others comment on the plans, but I'm just curious, who helped you come up with these island plans?

What kind of research did you do into the Alkaid CB market? I heard a passing comment on a ship yesterday that your flag had bought up the market for the coming blockade. So it's quite a biased market at the moment. Does your research stretch further into the past than just this week/weekend?

Will you be selling the IMs or running them inner flag? If you are selling them, will you actually make sure they go into the right hands for management or just the guy who is willing to pay the most to get another shoppe?

To attract a healthy cb market from various sources, have you considered setting up a partial refund on newly opened stalls to encourage others to join the Alkaid market?

As I type this, your selling cbs from the palace at 20/45/58 these prices are extortionate if you are actually serious about wanting to help the healthy process of nearby expeditions and pillages (your words), so would you consider lowering them until the supply has increased from shoppe and stall owners?

Edit : I've also just been informed that some atlantis maps have been spawning nearby Alkaid which has also exhausted the market recently.

There's the possibility that cannonball and rum shops might have some value, since it looks like the Beauford <--> Sage route is going to be as close to a red route as this ocean gets. But that, honestly, is just speculation.

Good Question.
We have been watching Alkaid's market for quite some time. A large island should be able to provide at least 8k of each cannonball type, at any given time. Alkaid is unable to provide this supply, due to the high costs of production & lack of local Iron + Wood spawns. To aid the supply and production rates, we will be focusing on supplying raw commodities from nearby islands, at the lowest possible cost. Over time, shop & stall owners will be able to provide a larger supply of CB's to those in need of them. However, our interests are with the islands business. As a result, we will not be flooding the market with raw commodities to the point where producing CB's becomes unprofitable. We will be maintaining a market floor price, by controlling the frequency and amount of imported commodities, to the point where all CB's will be affordable, while still generating a net surplus of poe for shop and stall owners.

As for the shops, one IM will stay within the flag & the other will be sold to someone interested in actually producing and shipping in raw commodities.

To attract a healthy cb market from various sources, have you considered setting up a partial refund on newly opened stalls to encourage others to join the Alkaid market? Yes, we have. We will not only be lowering taxes after maintaining the island for one week by 5%, but will be offering a 50% tax rebate on all shops, during the first week of the merger.

As I type this, your selling cbs from the palace at 20/45/58 these prices are extortionate if you are actually serious about wanting to help the healthy process of nearby expeditions and pillages (your words), so would you consider lowering them until the supply has increased from shoppe and stall owners? Due to the high demand and minute supply, prices were raised. Yes, these prices will be lowered as the supply increases within the next few days.


If anyone has any questions regarding Alkaid, please feel free to send me a tell!

This bit I find funny...

You say you want to make the Island a better place in a nutshell to sum up your horrible plan. Selling CBs at a higher price is only for profit. If you truly cared about reviving the island you would want to PROMOTE pillaging in the area, and keep in line with prices on Aimuari, not make a profit. I mean it shouldn't be to hard to know the prices there... you already own 2 IM's there.

I mean if you honestly don't get what I really mean about trying to revive an island and make the economy better you might wanna go take a look at EAC's plans when they held Sayer's Rock. Til than it just looks like you're in it for the PoE and Shoppes.

Re: Plans for Alkaid Island
You're so good, Infra.

Zakilla, how long is quite some time? Did anything else turn up in your study of Alkaid's market? What makes you find it necessary that 2 IM shoppes need to be dropped instead of just one (or even none)? I don't see anything in the past ownership of Alkaid that makes me think it is needed. I mean, I haven't seen anyone complain about lack of stock at Alkaid.

Re: Plans for Alkaid Island
Look, everyone with half a brain can see that the way to restore Alkaid is not by dropping shoppe's. However let's get real here, Zakilla isn't trying to restore Alkaid. He's trying to make us think he's restoring Alkaid and thus, seem like a governor that isn't trying to regain the money he spent taking the island.

It doesn't take a genius to see right through these plans as a way to make a quick buck and look like a good guy while doing it, and since that's what's up it doesn't really help to come here and comment on what plans would be better off. Instead, we're left with two choices. Either we can sit and watch Alkaid be subject for Zakilla's bankroll, or we can blockade the island. Anything else is a waste of time.

If the market is in such a bad state, offer the refunds on stalls now, instead of the date of the merger, which is still unknown and do this instead of building the 2nd shoppe. It's clear from reading the rest of the thread, people don't want to see more shoppes built on Alkaid!

Also, you don't need to ship in raw commods to Alkaid anyway, the merchant bots have access to wood and iron spawns located on Isle of Keris and Beaufort. Alkaid currently has cheaper or the same buy prices for wood and iron than all larges on Hunter (with the exception of Armstrong, which spawns both.)

There's also a SY currently for sale on Armstrong, cheaper wood and iron to rebuild your fleet.

I honestly don't care much about any of that tbh mate, or your attempts at provoking me during the week before the forum post. Get your head out of Zakilla's ass and do something worthwhile for a change, like run your flags island better.

Re: Plans for Alkaid Island
I hate to rerail... or try to bring this one down but... Zakilla I understand your "trying" to work on the cannon ball market but...



Even tho it is another type of bazzar... I can't help but feel this shows the flags mind set. Don't open a stall up here but take a job at mine on aim! This is a bazzar with 0 stalls... so maybe you should get incentives here? Just a thought, and a giggle from me...

P.S. i have contacted zakilla about buying the second IM actually and have ben told someone else has a higher bid in then me... figured i would et you all know so i don't get flamed about it later if he decided to let everyone know, what a terrible person i am for wanting an IM shoppe up on alkaid.
