Isn't there a way to pay to have a simple spot to spot portal that is NOT a ship?  Like one that goes from one place in my area to another place in my area?

I cant find info, costs, etc.

Nope, sorry, the portal procedure on VC has always been that portals must be done with ships.

I recommend ferries.  Water or Airship, so long as they're worthy craft, there is no size restriction.  

You can see one I did for Highmoor nearly two years ago (wow, I feel old) here: http://www.veterancraft.net/fo.....l-request/

The cost for any portal is the same, 50,000 shillings.

I also had a question about that would it be possible to build a portal vehicle like a subway train it think that would be pretty neat and it would be great for player areas that are on land and don't want to build flying vehicles

We had that discussion several years ago, and concluded that we needed to limit the portals to ships.

The reason being, while we do want to have robust travel networks, opening portals to land vehicles is a slippery slope and can of worms.  We have to put a limit on what can be "portaled" at some point, and keeping it to sea and air is a good demarcation.
