Island discussion

With reference to this post, this is a thread where you can propose islands for your ocean's shortlist.


Edit: rather than just naming an island, I'm interested in hearing your reasoning for this. :)
And also... as Sweetiepiepi says, if there are fervent feelings on islands NOT to open, you are welcome to express those too.

We're not going to be able to satisfy everybody (and we have our own criteria to apply as well), but we're happy to get feedback before the choices are shortlisted.

Re: Island discussion

For Midnight (in decreasing order of my personal preference):

Uxmal Island - Only uncolonized large island.

Lynx Island - Medium island in a popular archipelago (Ruby). Plus, the layout is neat. Papagoite can only be bid on at one island on Midnight, so, this will give the opportunity for another location to bid on papagoite (that's far away from the other).

Monsoon Island - Medium island that's on one side of an interarch route. Also spawns papagoite. It has a very nice layout and spawns hemp and iron.

Waterberry - Outpost island that already has a market (hence no merchants deliver the much needed hemp and wood that are there). Nice layout.

Re: Island discussion

What about putting forward cases for particular islands not to be opened? I don't want to add any to that particular list, but at the time of the last event we were quite taken aback when suddenly people came up with objections to our choice after it was made. Might be nice to hear about it in advance instead.

Re: Island discussion

I would want to see Quetzal (or Chachapoya) on Hunter opened for blockading, right now they are both controlled by Vilya. This would allow more economic options in the most populated archipelago. Might improve competition between two islands instead of the monopoly that Aimuari currently enjoys.

Going in the opposite direction, no islands are open in the Crab Archipelago - Nunataq Island would allow yarrow bidding and would be a great place for a shipyard (charts) or an IM (balls for SMH), whatever the owners decided. Paollu Island would also be a good choice up North for similar reasons.

Re: Island discussion

Mermaids Purse - Viridian (everybody loves it)

Radix Island - Viridian (Great design for setting uo an easy township)

Stormy Fell - Viridian (Spawns very good commods)

One of these Isles NEEDS to be opened to for the Garnet arch to entice more people to the lower depths of the map. Jade arch is fine, Onyx is set (needs some tinkering but otherwise ok) Garnet.... Needs a new Large opened.

Re: Island discussion

Now, I have not been playing on Sage long enough to understand and appreciate the economics of the ocean. From what I have seen, however, I feel that Sage does not need another island, let alone a large. If you insist upon opening a new island, let it be an outpost, out of the way with a poor income. This will promote new flags to blockade it at a cheaper, fairer blockade and stop another large/medium island being sat on for its PoE. The more smaller blockades we have, the more active the ocean will become.

Just a thought.

Re: Island discussion

For Midnight -

Flow - It spawns both thorianite and yarrow. The other part of the ocean that spawns these are in the upper east corner in Sapphire. Being able to get these on the other side of the ocean would be nice.

Re: Island discussion

I would like to see Immokalee Island (large, Canis) and Myvatn Island (medium, Horse Head) opened on Hunter. These two islands would provide a bridge between the easternmost archipelagos that would bring more life to Horse Head, as well as an economic boost that the entire ocean would benefit from.

Re: Island discussion

(Hunter Ocean) Qaniit or Sho-ke. Hunter doesn't need more larges, but could use another medium opened. Both of them are far enough away from Orion that it won't just crowd the most populated part of the ocean even more.
