Post Items Teleportation Device announcement. (Base packing)
A new item type I've been working on at Jeff's request that essentially will make it much easier to pack/deploy bases in your team territory.

This item will be made available in free market AI base after the server patch tomorrow for 5bil a piece as a "trial" and will be available for a short time after the universe reset (until the next patch).

This item will be the first of a series of convenience item to be bought for SpacePoints. (its a convenience item seeing how you can pack just as well using a ship to move the stuff).



The specific working for the item is relatively simple. The item will be a neurobound equippable. you equip it on a travel ship (or whatever ship you want to use as a source). Once equipped, you will be able to transfer to and from any ship "linked" to it.

Example:
- Have your singularity spheres docked in a team galaxy connected to your hq.
- open a remote inventory to the singularity sphere you want to put the stuff in (can be done at any time using the possession window)
- Equip the items teleportation device on your travel ship
- Dock in the station you want to pack
- Drag and drop the items you want to pack, to the remote inventory window
- Proffit.


There are a few constraints to prevent it from being abusable.
1. The items cannot be transported out of your team territory. (cannot teleport gear from outpot to hq for instance, unless the outpost is directly connected to your hq (therefor not needing the outpost). This limit its ability to be used for bvb
2. If there is an hostile player ship in the galaxy you are in, the item teleportation will not work. (cannot be used to instantly reinforce any under-attack galaxy).


The item will have a limited lifetime (unrelated to the regular decay, this will decay even if the server is down and cannot be froze). The "trial" version sold for credits in free market will last 12hours after being bought.

The item will be 0 size and once equipped on a ship, it cannot be unequipped and will disappear once its time is up.

The sp cost still remain to be decided on, but it will probably be around 2 SpacePoints for a 1 hour teleportation device (slightly less than 1$US) and 10 SpacePoints (less than 5$US) for a 12 hours teleportation device.

That is going to be the most bugged thing ever to come into SS.

It's a nice idea, but I don't want to see too many 'nice ideas' simply become micro transactions.

Perhaps consider rewarding the emp team with these sorts of things.

There is no plans to put every nice idea as microtransactions. right now, its essentially just this one, and at the same time, replacing the ship itemforming/aug reset handled by ticket system to also use spacepoints.

Post Re: Items Teleportation Device announcement. (Base packing)
great awesome idea.

ill never use it if it costs money.

it doesnt take that long to build, and it takes like 15 minutes to pack all 25 bases in my gal. no way is it worth 5 dollars to have 12 hours of this ability.

At 5bil per, I will definitely use them. At USD, I definitely will not.

the point is not to know if you will use it or not :P. It will simply be available if you desire to do so.

As i said, its a convenience item. Nothing it can do, cannot simply be done moving a sphere around xD. The only things that will probably change are the cost and lifetime of the item.

Could make a permanent item worth 100b a piece as a cash sink? If someone has 24 SSs they want to link it would kill 2.4tril credits. Plus the only difference it would make is that it would take 1-3 days to setup your galaxies rather than 3days to 2 weeks (depending on your capacity).

I doubt a guy with a sphere and brake will use it but remember back before u had a sphere dreaming of being able to pack z-gear in a DF :) I believe the mid to lower levels might buy this micro trans though

Lol, as long as items don't dissapear mid transit.

Need a quick clarification. Can this item be equipped only once on a travel ship, then you can transfer as much as you want to any storage ship? Or can this only be equipped on one storage and you can only transfer to that storage?

Post Re: Items Teleportation Device announcement. (Base packing)
a permanent version for 100b will most certainly not happen.

The item was changed from sticky to neurobound so you can actually move it to another ship if you didnt equip it on the ship you wanted to use.

As clarification. you dont need 2 of those to link 2 ships. If you have 1 on the ship your in its enough. It act as a bridge between the ship you are in (and the base you are docked at) and all your other docked ships in other stations, so long as they are within team territory.

it essentially just remove some restriction on item transfer when the item is present. So if you have a remote inventory, without the item, trying to drag and drop simply does nothing. But if you have the item equiped, then it transfer the item. There is no new code for the transfering part, so there should be no risk of losing any item (well, the same risk as transfering normaly so virtually none ! XD). The only new code is the part that authorise or refuse the item transfer.

I can see this being a really awesome item. However do you think it'd be possible to make it so that items can be transfered to-from sol? I have most of my storage in sol and therefore the item is mostly useless to me if you can only transfer within team space.
