Hello dear citizens
I want to introduce you a idea I have for change the actual export licenses system.
In the idea, the actual export licenses would be erased and replaced by a product named "Transport".
What is the "Transport" product?
It should be a product created by a new kind of company named "Transport Company". The Transport units would allow any citizen to sell in any country for a limited time. You can sell any ammount of goods of any quality.
You can select only 1 country of all countries of eRepublik (actually you only can sell to the ones you brought the license). Of course, once used the Transport, it dissapears, and your products stay in the selected country market for the time the Transport unit allows you.
The qualities and the time they allow you sell your goods in a market can be as follows:
Q1 = Small Van, allows you to sell for 1 day in a country market.
Q2 = Truck, allows you to sell for 2 days in a country market.
Q3 = Train, allows you to sell for 3 days in a country market.
Q4 = Vessel/Marine Transport, allows you to sell for 4 days in a country market.
Q5 = Airplane Transport. allows you to sell for 5 days in a country market.
Q6 = Airship/Zeppelin, allows you to sell for 6 days in a country market.
Raw material: can be iron, iron plus food, or new one.
Example: You are polish citizen, you buy a Train and use it for sell 100 x Q3 weapons to Paraguay. Your market offer will last 3 days in Paraguay market, after the 3 days it just will finish automatically.
The procedure for sell the products could be the same as now just adding a selection menu of the kind of transport:
After the limit time for sell products finishes, there can be several options:
Easy option: Your products go back your warehouse.
Difficult Option: You lose a random % of your products due to the cost of bringing back to your warehouse, maybe between 0% - 4% of the ammount of products you sent on market.
This I think would improve the actual market system, as people is limited to sell in very few markets.
Edit 05/08: With actual license system, sometimes you can buy a license for sell to a country that have 1% import Tax, and later the country gov decides to change it to 99%, thing that stops you selling there and make inactive the license you brought.
There are countries with few offer of products, specially small countries, so it will helps to fill their markets. It also will help powerful countries to give an exit to the big offer they have in their local markets. So, probably the tendency should be that all countries will have a similar price in the products.
With this measure you allow to sell in all countries by a limited time. So it also force citizens to buy again Transport units and ensure the consumption of the Transport produced by the companies.
Also will increase gold consumption, as the new company type as the other companies, need gold for improve the quality of the products it can build. And probably people will spend more gold than the actual license system, that is expensive and a high risk inversion.
