  1. [ESL-FB] The Cliff of Pontelli

    So much to love. Nice scene and humourous story. Great use of the CMF flower. And those minis down at the beach, both the two soldiers as well as the palm tree, are marvellous. :-)
  2. [COR FB] Nobody to be found in Jameston

    Great furniture, and very Corrish atmosphere for the whole scene. Nice work.
  3. [SR - FB] Wargames

    Brilliant mcirobuild. I love it.
  4. [MTF] Sourcing materials

    Nice layout, clever idea to use the masonry bricks lying like this. Good use of the sign as well. Looking forward to the continuation of your story!
  5. Very nice MOC, lovely integration of the building into the terrain. The rendering seems a bit too dark, though? Great to see you went the extra mile for a very nice interior on top.
  6. Great idea!

Also some great points from @Bregir, especially that trade value should not so much limit the profits, but rather the amount of tradable goods. So Trade value 100 vs. 1000 should not make a huge difference if only one ship visits, but definitely make a massive difference if 20 ships visit. Also I fully agree with @Bart, that towns MUST profit from the MRCA. I think we might go as far as to entirely remove the profits from land-based EGS for towns (maybe keep them in some point system to finance defense, but nothing else really) and maybe entirely base town-profits on the MRCA. Else taxation may always be an option.
  7. [COR-FB-Class 7 Ship] Frigate "Marlin"

    You, sir, are a great shipwright. Lovely work!
  8. Profit by destination: I took the top ten destination towns, which make up for 84% of all MRCA-profits, and set their profits in relation to the total profits from this MRCA (48.298 DBs). Top 10 settlements: Western Seas OL Breshaun 9.592 DBs 19,9% Eastern Seas ESL Nova Terreli 5.377 DBs 11,1% Crossroads NPC Kings Port 4.849 DBs 10,0% Old World OL Granoleon 4.756 DBs 9,8% Old World NPC Londa 3.959 DBs 8,2% Old World COR Belson 3.830 DBs 7,9% Old World NPC Kieg 2.655 DBs 5,5% Western Seas ESL Weelond 2.356 DBs 4,9% Eastern Seas ESL Trador 1.867 DBs 3,9% Eastern Seas COR Mooreton Bay 1.311 DBs 2,7% Sum by Regions: Old World 15.200 DBs 31,5% Western Seas 11.948 DBs 24,7% Eastern Seas 8.555 DBs 17,7% Crossroads 4.849 DBs 10,0% Sum by Nations: OL 14.348 DBs 29,7% NPC 11.463 DBs 23,7% ESL 9.600 DBs 19,9% COR 5.141 DBs 10,6% So what does this tell us? - Most profits are still being made by sailing to the old world and selling goods there. - Sailing from the Old World to the New World seems like the way to make money. - One third of all MRCA profits were made in Oleon's two most important towns (by destination). - 1 settlement makes up for 20% of all gained profits, 5 settlements for 59%, and 10 settlements for 84% (a total of 39 destination towns in this MRCA). - Remark: Most of the other 16% by the other 29 settlements were actually in the eastern Seas.
  9. [ESL-FB] Pontelli Pet Panic

    Marvellous houses, absolutely beautiful scene. Pontelli might be the most picturesque settlement already, and this MOC adds even more to it. Fantastic.
  10. Regarding land-based EGS vs. ship-based EGS: In the long run - even in the medium run - land based EGS is far more profitable. Just look at the account sheet: I am the richest player by far (3x the money of the second richest player, even though I donated away most of my shares in collaborations, so I could probably have 20-30% more money by now), and I haven't been running ships for many, many months. In the early months I have had some great success with ships, which gave me a head-start, for sure. But for long-term wealth and riches land-based might actually be the only way to go in my opinion. I earn 1.6k with my properties per month, 0 upkeep. Who does that with ships? Consistently, every month? Right: Noone does. Land-based is by far the most profitable option in the long run. Any other statement just ignores the numbers from the Account Sheet. For quick profits the TMRCA may be the best option, yes, and every player may participate. Easy as that. On top the new upkeep-rules clearly discourage having a very large fleet. Also every new player may ask for loans from the older playerbase - and will definitely get a loan from some source, to make getting started easier.
  11. [TSotEP] 7 - To the Sloop!

    That is once again just wow! The amount of action you manage to convey by posing the mnifigs and objects is absolutely outstanding. You are surely one of the very best MOCers in this regard. Hugely inspirational. And yeah, the build around it is pretty neat as well, as usual. Fantastic!
  12. [SR-FB] Rooms to Let

    I like the base very much; irregular, colours work perfectly, and the two levels with the mixed cobblestones work fantastically. Great work here.
  13. Looking really good, with a very innovative idea. I like it a lot!
  14. Exploring Celestia, One Day at a Time

    Outstanding. WOW!
