Peaceton Express!

Post by Elenis_Reyav » Wed Nov 15, 2006 1:16 pm

So with a recent update, Peaceton started doing a promotion. They didn't really draw any other visitors. Perhaps they're going about it the wrong way? Maybe they realize that they should offer more expensive trips to Peaceton, but on faster boats? It is clear that the current ship is large and not the fastest vessel on the seas. Maybe it is time for them to invest in the sleek, swift boats of the elite? 800 coins gets you a spot on the Peaceton Falcon! This speedy vessel will get you to the Peaceton docks in just one day! (6 ooc hours)

Very simple idea:
Add another ship that charges more, but gets to Peaceton faster. Peacetonians start profiting faster, the rich of Puddleby who don't want to waste their time getting seasick get to Peaceton faster! Everyone wins!

Oh. Forgot to mention. The Peaceton Express goes both ways. Yea. So you can get back to the Puddleby Docks in 6 hours too. Clearly.

Good idea. Though the other boat becomes pretty much completely obsolete in doing so. May as well just make the current one somehow suddenly go super fast.

This could be done. I'll think on it a bit more. Maybe we need a builder to build a faster boat or retrofit the current one with bigger sails and a mast. (Or...whatever nautical technology is needed to make it go faster.)

Then, if there's sufficient interest, I'll see what I can do.

What about a giant catapult that flings you across the islands, but you land fallen on the other side :-P

Temporary Hijack Below:
As I recall, some pieces of a catapult blueprint were found on Gungla Island, soon after there was a discussion about a catapult being installed for rapid transit. Small and Eldon had chipped in their thoughts about it, and it might have been being developed? The pieces are still around, as far as I know, though nothing has come of it (again, as far as I know).

The relevant thread is here.
The obstacle is the path.

Fair enough! I'd contribute to this builder.

All done, and doesn't cost a penny more, thanks Eldon.

Close?
