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.
