Any chance of getting "settlement" or "company" level vaults, for allies, in player settlements?

-I would advise that you keep some stuff for yourself, to yourself.
-If you are going to restrict access to any crafting stockpiles, best to have a few with permissions to access. You will only frustrate your Guild/Settlement Mates otherwise.
-If you want to have citizens "taxed" or "donate" then you should keep that separate, try and have specific goals about what you want(purpose) in such vaults, and make sure the others know what those goals are.

Edit: Oh and if it is about being a control freak(looks at self in mirror), think hard about that before you lay out the procedures. Keep it in low gear or you might lose good members.

What I would love to see is some sort of central place(regularly updated) listing what settlements would like to trade and what they want to acquire along with prices both ways.

Are you so deep into your settlement role that you don't even realize that it is INDIVIDUALS who trade, not settlements?
I don't feel like I am. The above comment was sparked by my burgeoning interest to trade Bulk resources, which are mostly going to be wanted by "settlements", though I could see companies wanting to acquire Bulk for Holding maintenance. Yet considering that many "settlements" ARE Just Individuals at this time, you pose a somewhat funny point. smile

Do not get me wrong though. I also want to trade craft materials with individuals. In both cases I feel like it would help to be able to see what people (settlements or individuals) want Before I haul Fat Mules to places as far as Emerald Lodge. Would really help traders to be able to see what people want in a single place without having to travel to 3 places first.

Not technically "hardcore" like I suppose local trading is designed for. So I am lazy. So what? smile

Well it is the first real incentive to push your gathering skills past 14. That is something good for the game, no?

A good part of this information can be gotteded through the settlement lookup in the UI, in game. Leaders, parent companies, banner companies, even members if you want to get that in-depth. smile

You know, contracts COULD be an avenue for gaining social points. Much better than going to the back yard and killing your Alt 8000 times.

Just saying…

Is it already the case that Allies can't Feud Allies?

My suggestions? Player housing, Company based housing, other company based facilities like a company shop/stall in settlement areas (including potentially allied settlements) … basically things that empower individual players and companies rather than entire settlements.

Excellent ideas here - would love to see these implemented!

Which suddenly made me think of something else - will Blacklists include not being able to power up at the local Tavern contained in every settlement?

Yes, this is what will truly mitigate the problems, plus add a lot more flavor to the game and re-empower companies. Have em be able to provide a source of support too as long as they are in the company's possession and I think you will be good to go.

Cause let's face it if companies are supposed to represent guilds and such well, yeah, that ain't a thing in the current game. Every guild either owns a settlement or is part of an alliance of settlements and until companies can exist separately from settlements it is always going to be that way. It is impossible to do right now.

As for groups taking over new settlements…Yeah…That suffers from the same settlement dependency issue. You won't be able to without both the blessing and support of an existing settlement. I just got very lucky when I joined a group that gave me the flexibility for Fianna to be itself and the willingness to help build up something unique for the game. Being a more chaotic aligned settlement helped a lot with that, I doubt I would have gotten the same opportunity elsewhere. smile
Well you did fill a niche alignment/philosophy spot or at least bring it renewing energy, Paddy. Big Kudos for that. Someday I would like to know what all is going on in the middle politically. Maybe make some trade deals for Bulk now that things are changing and hauling it is not such a PITA as it was.
