Code: Select all
Dear Donut Dwellers, We're glad to announce another pilot that we hope will enhance your Genesis experience! We are changing the way the money exchangers work. Right now the fees for the banks were random, and at the whim of the bank's coder. Not anymore! Each bank in the pilot (which is the four banks in Khalakhor) starts with a flat rate of 25%. Then, if there is no activity in that bank for some, somewhat randomized, time, the fee may drop by 1%. We estimate the drop will happen around every 4-5 hours. The lowest rate that the bank may provide currently is 5%. On the other hand, excessive activities of minimization and change will affect the rate the other way around. Once again, subject to certain randomness, but operations of volumes up to 100pc may send the rate up by 1%, up to 500pc - by 2%, and operations above that - by 3%, the fee going up immediately after the triggering transaction. The maximum fee the bank may charge is currently set to 50%. You can learn about the rates in the competing banks of the domain by command <rates nearby> . At later stage we might be able to provide the rates by the area of your selection, or in the entire game, but not at the moment. In addition as soon as you enter the bank, the clerk will inform you of the current exchange fee. This only applies to the minimize and change activities. The deposits remain to operate the way they were. The fees reset to 25% after each game restart. Once again, this is still a pilot. Any number mentioned in this post may change up or down. Please report any bugs, typos, and loopholes. Ideas and other comments are welcome as well. Tapakah, Liege of Khalakhor.
