Olive Island.

Was just wondering if anyone has a suggestion on what we should build on Olive? We have the option of Trading Post, Explorers' Hall or Black Market.


The Explorers' Hall just dusted which was intentional. We don't have a problem building a new EH it was just alot easier to rebuild it then try and have props replaced.

Re: Olive Island.

I'm obviously biased, since I built that EH in the first place and I had my reasoning behind that, but I would actually suggest replacing it. As I have understood it, two EHs on nearby islands is more than twice as good as one, because it's possible to buy more charts for a certain route at the same time. When we had the islands, it was easy to see that sales in the Swampfen/Olive EHs were about 10 times as high as the sales in the EHs we used to have at TLM/Fintan, in total about 20 maps/compasses per day on each island. That can also increase your stock sales, I guess, though we never really saw any effects of that. (Nativepride would know better, though, he was the one running the stock.)

Otherwise, I guess some people might like a new BM in Jade, though the interest doesn't seem that big (judging by recent Harmattan incidents etc), since Laby has one and the cost of a whisk is rather reglectable if you're going to buy black boxes. I suppose.

Also, glad to see the palace reset and even with some paint! There is more work that could be done if one wanted (downgrading/upgrading bank and estate agent, renaming the bank and palace etc), but you have fixed the biggest eyesore, which is great. Thanks for that!

Re: Olive Island.

Avienda, i know you are probably going to take offence to this but i cant help saying it. Do you really have to make every single thing you post, about you or your flag? Before you start typing out a 5 paragraph reply let me just say, thank you for your suggestion and reasoning for rebuilding the EH it has been noted.


On a side note, as i have said, we are trying to fix the island back to how it should be as soon as possible. There are certain items that can not in any way be returned. Unfortunantly the statues in the Estate can not be replaced. Ivdripper knows more about what can and can't be replaced though.

We've got no Black Market in Jade.

Fix it.

Re: Olive Island.

Black Market, I don't think Olive-anything is a big pillaging route and building an Explorer's Hall isn't going to change that.

Re: Olive Island.

I would say build a black market since we do not have one in Jade, in fact I believe we only have one in the ocean. We already have an EH and trading post in Jade.

Re: Olive Island redocoration project.

As for the changes on Olive, the Palace was taken care of instantly as all it required was a petition to the proper party.

RL and work got in the way this week and I was planning to start the upgrade on the EA tonight. Due to the blockade drop, I will wait until it's done before I start the upgrade. I am working on the furni for the bazaar lobbies and housing lobbies.

I was also planning to sail up some paint to add more colour to the place this weekend, now it will also wait until all the cades are over.

If anyone has suggestions for the Estate lobby, I would be most grateful to hear them, as the statues that were dusted cannot be replaced.

Thanks to all who have helped, we should have Olive all decked out in the next week or so.
