    For some days now i have been thinking about moving my trading buisness to Arkadia, but i do have a few questions.

    Hows the market over there? Is it stable or is the prices jumping up and down?

    What would it cost to move everything over, vehicles, armors, weapons, equipment? (im not gonna move any stackables) but all my gear is about 4k tt value.

    And is there any need of traders in Arkadia that pays good prices?

    to bring all your stuff doesn't cost any extra, as long as you can carry it all which you should be able too do

    there is a need for traders, but the other questions I let more qualified persons answer on

    Only the items in your "Materials" and "Mined Resources" tabs of your inventory are lootable. You can bring lootables, but obviously there is a chance they will be looted. Less chance if you fly with an experienced pilot in a quad or use escorts, more if the pilot is inexperienced or in a vtol.

    I'll bring a good trader over in my quad for 15 ped, you get the valuable player discount :)

    Maybe if you could tell what kind of items you want to trade, we could let you know if there's a need for that. Or if you have no preference and are just looking for a good opportunity, there is plenty of that. A big need is trading materials between miners and crafters. A lot of crafters are having trouble finding enough of what they need, partly because we don't have enough traders—sometimes you have to hunt around for them or post on the forum to find someone.

    The main thing for Arkadia at the moment is we need miners and crafters! Of all the planet partners Arkadia maintains an auction listing of about 90 pages, compared to the others. The key thing to your success is getting to know the economy here. More blueprints are due and apartments, shops etc are soon to be released.

    Cheers

    If you're willing to take a little risk, there are quite a few items in short supply on arkadia at the moment. AFAIK, for example, there is around a 10% difference in the price of muscle oil between caly and Arkadia. There are a number of other minor holes too - basic leather extractors and tier III components come to mind.

    Good luck to ya, Moose! There's prime opportunity for trading on Arkadia now. Not alot of other traders to compete against. Mining is slowly but surely growing, and a solid trader will bridge that much needed gap between them and the budding crafters.

    Traders are extremely needed at the moment but more so crafters... If you get setup I am in the market to buy thyroid/Lyst & oil :) Also I will buy wool/hides if someone is willing to smuggle molisk buttons to arkadia :)

    Well, we know who the big crafters and buyers are on Ark. I think the challenge of most traders is finding a large enough supply of materials to generate the high volume needed to make a low profit margin business profitable and compensate for the risk involved. So the state of mining or the state of crafting could be one of the main reasons why there's a lack of traders on Ark. If there was a big market for traders, I figure those businesses would have likely developped by now. At the moment serious miners seem to sell directly to the crafters, and those crafters pay very well.

    Just the opinion of a newbie, so it's worth what it's worth.... :) There could be opportunities for an experienced trader right now as there is a shortage of important ores on Ark, even though they are not rare ressources by any means. In theory the high MUs would stimulate mining.

    taxes on LA's on arkadia are the biggest in all entropia atm..and the lack of people is very stressful..becouse in this way the economy is blocked. I have tones of stuff to sell..and i dont have people to buy my stuff. I believe they should make something about this things. Arkadia need people..not more taxes. So..trading is extremly litle on arkadia atm..but could be alot nicer .

    SC is where all the exp hunters hang out before the taxes. Nowadays I would still think that is where they may hang out. Who knows. But do keep in mind the taxes in those LAs.

    The PP has Celeste Harbor set up to be the trading city, but ATM the population and features such as shops just arent there yet. We are suppose to have see some of those things implemented, but this release didnt have anything for Arkadia.

    BTW, welcome to Arkadia.
