Any chance the price could be lowered?

What is minimum?

GCA can handle up to 1m-m3/per transfer, but no reason a transfer couldn't be in multiple stages.

5000mk-EMS = $12,120,000-base = 6925.7m3-diamonds.  7,000m3-diamonds doesn't look like much markup?
(+ the 5% going to GCA for the handling)

I'll buy two of the shields please?  I wish I could afford all 10.   

I'm only playing sporadically until May 6, however, I can log on to complete this transfer.  I am having a bit of trouble 'rejoining' the GCA but I hope that will resolve itself shortly.

That's why I suggested at the beginning that there should be no tax paid to the GCA (i.e., anyone can trade for free, and let me pay the manager's salary instead) to maximize attractiveness. laugh

I want only one thing from GCA - to see good mods made available to new/recent players.
(something that frustrated me greatly before joining SPQNR!)

If you and Cliff work out a salary, I'll agree to changing the bylaws :-)

Raphael, I think if you would subsidize the manager fee/salary that would be a big help.

I'm getting richer now...but a few months ago ever solar was sooo precious.  There needs to be a good profit - 5%-10% say - for the person who is giving up their manufacturing time to make modules.  That seems completely appropriate - would have been ever so much faster making money if I could have only bought some ACB 50's early in the game at a 10% markup.

A new player should realize fairly quickly they need some SLB's - so there should be some market for SLB's.  OR a new player could totally ignore science and buy 100% of their modules.  That would cost them 10%, say, more than making it themselves but they'd avoid the cost of buying SLB's and buying a Titan to put it on.  From a cashflow perspective for an early game newbie it would make so much sense to do that.  Only after you are over the 'getting to SOS hump' would you then need to buy some Titans and SLB's and start the research tree. 

I'm thinking of making some "SOS starter packages" - 1xWHG 35, 6xACB 50 = $4209400+10%=$4,630,340.  That amount is well within striking distance for a player doing a week of intrastellar transport to Venus, Moon, Mars, Diemos, and Phobos.

We could do that

1 million solars, or 1 QP per trade. Would that be okay?  1
