Portal set pricing has been adjusted from 100,000.00 shillings to 50,000.00 shillings.

The monthly fee for a dock in Exodus has been adjusted from 10,000.00 shillings per month to 2,000.00 shillings per month.

Hot dang, that's a deal!

 

What is the process for this, do we build the ships ourselves, or is there a designated ship builder?

As ships to Exodus must be from the 1800's, we would be very particular in submarines.  We won't be approving any nuclear subs, for example.  If it's not Exodus, the restrictions are less, but will still need approval, as with any portal ship.

And even if it's a submarine, of any sort, for it to be a portal ship it must be docked, meaning it must be floating on the surface or in some sort of "sub bay."

In Re: to the submarine question, you should research submarine testing and usage during the period of the American Civil War. The dates of the war are around the mid to late 1800s. Though, any subs put into use at that time probably would not have been very large, and hence, not very scalable to expand to the size of standard portal ship. I guess you never know until you see one though.

One thing i've been toying with myself is the idea of an ironclad steamship / portal ship. I've never built any cities large enough to support a portal ship, so it's an idea i've never submitted for approval, but i do have one built in an offline world to work as an example design in case i ever do deside to move forward on it. It's based off of the CSS Virginia put in use by the Confederacy around the 1860s. I just might snap a few pics and add it to the creations subforum just to put it out there. Smile

I think the new prices for portal ships are much more manageable / practical btw - i applaud the decision to update them!

Good post, Trip.

It's worth noting that we don't have a classification for submarines.  In the Portal Ships page, we only have Sail Ships and Air Ships.  And we state that all Sail Ships (seafaring) MUST have sails.

So submarines would be an exception to the standards.  I would say you can do a design and plead your case, and staff will decide.
