This maybe a silly post, but I just wanted to thank the community of Amenti (EU Server), for the opportunity to run the town of First Light, this past week.
I really do love First Light. A fully fleshed out area, of beautiful landscapes, amazing content that challenged me at the start and yet, at level sixty, continues to give me content, resources, portals and achievements. Since the Alpha, my love for this town still lingers to this day, months after release.
I wanted to run the town, to try and use my own money, rather than the company I’m with, to offer new players some town board content and to experience what it’s like to lead.
I include this picture of very basic set of books. When I took leadership, I dropped the taxes to it’s very lowest amounts.
In total, I spent about 16,600 just to improve the town and give community some buffs.
As you can see - I only earned 13.5k from the town. (This week, AGS added rents to players, but seemed to forget - company %).
I don’t know how to make the town profitable any further. The income is from very generous players who mostly used the trade market this past week. Despite some changes, despite me spending my own money, I don’t see how I can add more functionality and still have funds enough from taxes. Am I doing something wrong? Are the prices for the upgrades too much?
Win or lose tonight though… I again… just wanted to say - Thank you.
I’ll let you know soon.
