    I don't normally write on the forums, that is obvious. Though I have been thinking of a way to bring more entertainment to the server without need for content being added. So I am officially announcing my plans to the public for my "The world may never know" meme on the discord. I am going to be making a faction very soon that's main focus is to deliver goods across that map. Things I plan to be doing will be just for my own entertainment and hopefully will benefit the server.
    • I will mail items to people or locations
    • I will farm certain items for cost and deliver them once the order is complete
    • Items will vary in price depending on rarity and time spent
    • I'll even craft food and chems for people
    Prices will be listed in NCR and Legion Currency for RP reasons and the fact that we can't trade caps. I know everyone has a life and can't be on as much as some others so they get behind in farming, with this I can hopefully keep those people up to date. I also know there are some people that play 3hrs+ a day who get bored and might like to join for fun. I am thinking of running this faction as a business so people that join will be employees not members and will receive in-game currency for there help. That does mean people will get fired for breaking rules. Anyone caught duping will be kicked and reported from this.

    As I said earlier this is mainly for my own entertainment, but I really want to bring in an Economy and will apply for my faction once I get fair prices for the effort put in. I do encourage others to do something like this, that way there isn't a monopoly in this economy. If anyone has any suggestions or idea's they'd like to share please let me know.

    Heh, nice idea. Boxing Boy had the same idea too.

    Make sure to carry plenty of pencils and clipboards so the recipient can sign off on the delivery :p (BB idea)

    The cool thing about this idea that there is actually valid gameplay reasons outside of RP why you may need something delivered. Battlefield gear that has WG is an obvious one, but there really is no limit.

    Good luck to you Rev and I'll be sure to give you business!

    I like the idea but what's to stop me from killing a courier for the loot they're carrying?

    Bruh, they can try.

    Though on a more serious note, lore reasons would cause Legion not to attack us. Reputation should help. Though protection wise I have a couple ideas. The plan is to be true neutral but raiders will attack us that is obvious. So we will defend ourselves.

    Why not use chips? 1:1 with caps. Takes a god damn age to transfer NCR cash into Chips.

    Because Casino's are the devil's house of worship and I won't allow for it in my good christian server! On another note it's more with the idea that they deal with those who aren't in the vegas area also so casino chips won't be used as currency.

    It's a good idea, but I'd recommend some sort of protection. You could hire a few guards to protect the courier, until he's delivered the items. Once the courier has made their transaction, then the guards receive a cut. This would be useful, as the buyer could set up the courier and loot his items.

    I believe due to the fact you can farm caps, your economy would be inflated in a week tops. You can simply cash in your caps for chips, and then exchange the chips for any currency you'd like. Especially given that caps are easily accessible. Due to the cave, and SSHQ being popular spots to farm caps or XP. The idea would however be workable of those two cap stockpiles were removed. As people would have to kill npcs for currencies. And that is more time consuming and doesn't profit 2k+ caps.

    However all you can do to fix the economy then is kill people to reduce the amount of currency stockpiled. To prevent a sudden influx of inflation.

    I can see the benefit, of being pinned down and calling a messenger to drop supplies like a new Annabelle or ammo, if it dosent crash your mind

    Still believe the idea of an economy doesn't fit the current state of the mod. That or at the very least there needs to be different items used as currencies.

    If someone is duping they will get banned. So it just becomes outsourcing farming so you can just have fun playing the game, that is the point.

    duping in most cases in undetectable with items, so if you were gonna make a shop rn, why would I buy when I can just go and get it multiple times for free

    now, with hardcore the shop would work better, sorta most people might still just go and get it rather than farm for money

    unless you traded with items, I can just go and grab a ton of money and farm it at a spooky cave and buy something, or we could exchange items of equal worth but that would be like a traveling merchant :)
