    I think what would be good to create in Celest Harbour is a giant building that works like the Command centers but much much bigger. Take a look at NEVERDIES clubs on Rocktropia i really think he did a good job on those. as being a sort of HUB for people.

    So I'm thinking a pretty big building with high ceilings maybe even 2 levels but like a whole in the middle. Kinda like the Archeological soc building. But like the Command Centers it would be seperate chat from outside and would hopefully reduce the outside worlds lag.

    I think some seats would be nice, Lots of terminals for everything. and a TP and Landing Pads on the roof so it's easy to get to.

    This would be a place where EVERYONE would be for selling there items and crafting and hanging out.

    Celest Harbour looks great but seems to be a lag fest for everyone becasue of the beautiful scenery and vehicles spawning.

    Just an idea i'm sure others could add to also. And when you name the Tp call it "Arkadia Market Place" that way it will be near the top just under 8 coins(unless you rename it Eight Coins)

    I agree. Celest Harbour is a great place for trading, but we need something like in Calypso. Twins had "boxes" before Big cryengine VU now it has "balcony" where people stand and sell stuff. So it would be nice that everyone would spread a word and gather there to sell and buy stuff!

    And according to Dobson when he came in game a few days ago, there's going to be shop booths in CQ or CH (or split between the two).

    Simply put we need a place with terminals (all of them) that we can hang out advertise our items we are selling/buying and NOT HAVE LAG.

    Oh yeah, like that's ever going to happen.. You can't not have lag for everyone.. there's always going to be someone with lag.

    the old CND club on Rocktropia Never Lagged and it was a great place to hang out. It's still there they just moved it. But i think it was the greatest design for having a place to hang out craft check auction do your repairs and all that. It was LAG free for everyone i think because it was so self contained.

    Yes it did.. A little bit. Not for me after I got my new (at the time) video card.. But there were others it still lags for.

    Hi,

    supporting this idea. Celeste has become great recently, absolutely love it, but for a "marketplace" it's not suited yet. Alone the vehicles ppl cannot avoid to spawn for a show-off ...

    I'd love to have a big hall (no vehicles) with a full set of terminals at every 4 sides. And some decoration in it, to make it easy to find one another (@ statue, @ boxes, @ stairs, @ whatever - got me?). Similar to old Port Atlantis, just indoor.

    To further encourage it's use, our A-Team should spawn there, if there's no nOObie business asking for the Quarry. Hehe, I'm not complaining at all, but maybe other A-Team members but Cyrus and David might be allowed to introduce themselves there, and receive our homages.

    If then, additionally, a few of our key participants would agree to accept this as their "home" we could have a nice Arkadian Marketplace. I'd think it would benefit us all.

    Have a good time!

    I think this is a good idea and could do a lot to reduce lag - I'll look into it - no promises of when we could could slot it in though, the dev schedule is pretty chock full at the moment.

    I'd like to add a further idea to this:

    How about market stalls? These would likely resemble trestle tables, and would be significantly different from the existing booths and shops,in that they could be hired by small traders on a daily or weekly basis, but would otherwise function in much the same manner.

    To prevent it being spoiled by idiots and absentees there should be limits to how many tables a given trader can book simltaneously, and how far in advance they can be booked. To keep things tidy, they could maybe fold away when not in use?

    At the end of the hire period, unsold goods could be returned to the trader's storage.

    jay :)
