So far, I only have three basic ideas on how to make a profit in Eshira.

1. Faction Bank. What's the faction bank? It's a bank your faction stores all it's cash in. Every ten minutes, you can take a certain amount of money out of the bank, maybe $40 or so. The bank will only have about 200$ when the server restarts so you'll have to acquire more money. To do that, you go and capture mining sites.

2. Supply Drops. Every once in a while a dropship from your faction will arrive and drop off supplies.

3. Selling stuff. Acquire a trader licence and begin selling.

If anyone has any more ideas please feel free to contribute them.

How does "selling stuff" work? Does the faction gain a % of your profit?

Is the supply drop just a money drop or an item drop? Because if it's an item drop, it would probably just be more convenient for the factions to buy traders licenses and be able to pull things out of the air.

It's not a literal drop.
It just adds money to the funds.

That's what I assumed anyway.

Selling stuff. Just buy a trader flag on a non-military faction.

How about a perk, that lets you salvage items thru out the map. That are spawned are random intervals, and you can save said salvaged items or just sell them immediately, but if you save them you can eventually combine them and make something bigger that would sell for more. Just something I thought about for a few minutes.

To do that, you go and capture mining sites.

^

Perhaps add a reward for capturing a site, and have them give off a steady payout.

So for example, if you capture a site it gives more money which becomes less the longer you own it to encourage competitive play?

You could always let people work at a faction's mining site. Both that person and the faction get a set amount of money.

Mercenary work. For money, do a variety of combat-based missions/tasks from being a bodyguard to attacking a faction's base. Freelance mercenaries might even do occasional jobs with other factions, should said factions need help.

Mercenary work, assassin work, anything else of that nature.

You could also do SF RP's of illegal smuggling. You just need an admin and the smuggler, the admin can bring in anyone else they want for a defensive force and the smuggler tries to survive their way onto the planet, giving their faction an immediate boost in money (amount doesn't have to vary) or giving a company an immediate boost in illegal items to sell.

Hunting, picking plants, scavenging, making furniture, making ships, all kinds of things would fall into that category.

I support the salvage idea, although it'd probably work best for items and stuff, rather than money.

Unless of course you sell the salvaged materials to someone, or someone has a nasty habit of leaving dollar bills lying around in the desert.

Thing is, there has to be people who are willing to pay people to do these things, so pests have to be fucking pests, whoever gives the jobs can't just be doing it because of ooc reasons (money needs to flow, keep server active etc), they have to be doing it, because they are having their food eaten, or their house fucked up or something like that.

Also, scavenging can't just be like "Oh hey, there is a random pile of rubble here". It should be more like "Two factions just had a huge battle, lots of dead people, lots of equipment, yays". Or like, a smuggler fucked up, and was shot down, and you find his ship before the authorities.

Things like crashed smuggler vessles would be logical, but not in large numbers or respawning.

Unless of course we have some seriously incompetent smugglers.
