Vendetta will test supply-chain economics in its next update

Guild Software says that the next major version of long-running sci-fi sandbox Vendetta Online will debut “in a month or two.” Version 1.9’s biggest change is an experimental dynamic economy model that will be tested on some outlying grayspace stations. Unlike existing stations which have an infinite supply of local goods, the new economy will maintain actual inventory based on player buying and selling.

Guild emphasizes that this is a prototype system, and cautions that “this kind of economic model can be chaotic.” That said, it’s a crucial part of the supply-chain economics scheduled to release with Vendetta version 2.0.

Vendetta’s latest newsletter features further details on the economy changes, the new game server, and more.

thickenergy That’s the 100,000 subscriber question, isn’t it?

C4de SkyyDragonn The question is, when is eventually? I first played VO about ten years ago. It really hasn’t changed much since then.
I applaud the devs for sticking with something that they love. But  the glacial pace of development, which might be okay if it was currently an otherwise fully functional sandbox, has certainly done the game and its player population no favors.

SkyyDragonn AFAIK, the goal is to eventually get to something pretty much like EVE nullsec. Player-built stations, player-run economy, player-owned space all that.

This is a test of the economy part of that. For the stations that the prototype economy is implemented at, the goods on offer will be based on what players sell to the stations. If station X has no, say, Neutron Blaster Mk 3’s and a player sells one or ten to that station, the station will turn around and sell the blasters to anyone else who docks.

Somewhat like EVE, but not quite.

Grimmtooth I once thought about trying it but some things put me off.  PC version is a trial, but android is F2P (which I found odd).

Grimmtooth A joystick I could fix. (Although listening to people spend $300 on joysticks for farming simulator boggles even me.) Alas, I lack coordination and reflexes.

But economy stuff is very interesting and indie, sandbox is nice.

People that are throwing money hand over fist at star citizen should give VO a try.
The ships are fly by wire so I would recommend a joystick on the PC

Interesting indeed. So the first goal of this game will be: being the fastest to get there with enough money to rule the economy. If I were to play this game  this would be my thinking.

Interesting…wonder how close to Eve’s economy this is going to be.
