    Since we heard that the 5% tax was MindArks "fault", I'm wondering if the current* LA's will need fertilizers too?
    Or if this is also something MA removed the need for on pre purchased or investment LA's, I seen somewhere someone asked Deathifier about this and he had said it was going to be needed and it was some bug needed to be worked out but thats was a few VU's ago.

    If not please remove the dung and growth molecules from the ground we walk and mine upon, as no one will export these things through lootable space and I don't see the current mu of either of these things improve to the point it will be worth it anytime really.

    Or have you already thought of this and incl any of these things into the new redone BP receipts? ;)

    As a crafter i hereby want to formally protest against any blueprint that uses dung as an ingredient! :)

    Could do with a growth molecules blueprint though...

    The way the current LA's on Ark are implemented I doubt they need fertiliser.

    PP's have spawned the mobs on the LA i.e. natural spawns. So the PP controls maturity and density etc. Hence no need for fertiliser.

    Due to this model being chosen it's probably the case why MA set minimum tax at 5%.


    Do these LA's have a fertilizer station? and land configuration terminals? if so then the above may not be true :) because then they would be regular LA's.

    8 Coins have it looks just as Calypso fert stations just all in one terminal

    Haven't found the one at Sanctuary tho, but that doesn't mean it's not there haven't looked too hard since I checked the 8 coins one several times (8 coins HQ)

    The current LA's (8 Coins and Sanctuary Cove) do not require fertilizer. However, future LA's will require it so we won't be removing dung or Growth Molecules from the planet.

    The Land Areas don't currently need Fertilizer as the spawns are setup outside the control of the area owners.
    I'd prefer it if things behaved the same as every other LA - it is much harder with this setup to adjust spawn settings and not using fertilizer distances it somewhat from the planets economy.

    Sanctuary Cove does have a Control Terminal, the same type as 8 Coins, it's just not placed in such an obvious location.

    Thanks both David and Deathifier for the clarification, and yeah I thought it would have at sanctuary too not just searched for it as I found yours ;)

    So future LA's... hmmm I'll leave that to others to speculate around lol

    Feel free to close this thread as an answer been provided
