Day [553] New Technologies

ProEconomica Team decided to give us a late Christmas present by implementing level 3 & 4¬†technologies. They were a little bugged at first but they work fine now. Veteran players already researched them and put them on sale, so go upgrade your company! ūüôā

The Map, City and Home as I predicted in my last post didn’t get implemented this year … maybe next year or the year after that. Anyway Happy New Year!

Day [533] Update

It’s been a while since I updated the blog, several new features were implemented in ProEconomica, I’ll try to write a little about each one.

 

Missions

 

 

Well this module is ¬†very straight forward you just need to complete certain missions and you get rewarded for it. It’s actually a nice way to gain some extra money. There are 15 missions but only 12 are active/

 

 

 

Spying

 

This module works in 3 stages:

  • Your Efficiency, Productivity, Happiness, Culture, Education and Prestige are added and the player with the highest number wins.
  • The number of your accomplished missions is compared with your opponent’s.
  • 6 abilities are randomly selected and the player with the most ability points wins.

If you win you get 15 xp and 250 money.

 

VIP Package Update

This is a future that was requested from day 1, it took a while, over a year, but it was finally implemented, now you can sell your products to a certain player so you don’t have to worry about someone else buying your products anymore. It’s also really easy to use, just enter the name of the player you want to sell your product to and he will be the only one that will be able to see it on the market, of course you can type in your name if you want to buy your product yourself or with one of your other companies.

 

¬†“Top with Prizes”

Well this module is so awful I wont even waste my time to write about it.

New Currency – ECO

So a while ago ProEco team decided to remove EURO and implement ECO instead, so far so good. If you have 5 Euro you can sell them for 300 gold, now here is where it gets messy, if you want to buy ECO you have to buy it from other players for the “small” prices between 100-150 gold so you can buy 2 maybe 3 ECOs if you are lucky, even worse now you can’t even find that many players selling them, so if you had any EURO previously to this update you basically lost at least half of them. You want to buy game shares, well then you need to buy ECO, you want to withdraw some of the money you deposited then you have to buy ECO.
Talking about withdrawing ¬†money, well it seems that the ProEconomica Team didn’t think it was enough they just stole half of what you owned so they also bumped up the withdrawal tax from 20% to 40%. ¬†If you had 100 Euros before the updated now you have, if you are lucky, 50 euro; if you want to withdraw this 50 euro after the new tax you get about 30 not counting the paypal tax, but since not many people actually sell ECO and you need at least 20 euro for withdrawals your 100 EURO are now worth NOTHING!

The admins promised a lot of things like the price for 1 ECO will drop to 40 gold, the state will sell ECOs too and other things like that but I really don’t see that happening. This update had only 1 purpose to make sure you can’t withdraw any of the money you have invested in the game … or maybe just a small amount.

If you are new to the game my advice to you is DO NOT DEPOSIT 1 CENT IN THIS GAME!! unless you are doing it just for fun and you are not planing/hoping to withdraw anything, ever!

Also you might have noticed that the Map, City and Office had some deadlines set, they were supposed to be implemented sometime between¬†September and December 2012 but the Map deadline was now changed to “Integration: In the next version” and I have a feeling that the other two will follow… but don’t worry they will be implemented sometime “soon” like the year 2020 and they will also by bug free.

Day [408] Professional VIP and CPanel

Proeconomica Update Day 408

Vip Professional PackageA new feature has been implemented, the Control Panel (CPanel), with it you can manage multiple companies easier. From here you can hire workers, start production, sell your products and see your company’s statistics.
To access this panel you need to acquire the new Professional VIP Package for “ONLY10 Euros/month.¬†I think this feature should be available for all VIP packages and I don’t think many players will buy this Professional Package for the CPanel, personally I wont and wouldn’t pay so much for it, maybe those with 40-50 companies will want it.

 

Day [391] New Company Price Changes

Well this has to be a first, a change was announced and implemented in less than an hour. Today  Proeconomica Team decided to change the prices for regular companies, the new prices are better for new players as the first companies can be opened for a lot less but on long-term they will really hurt your virtual wallet.

The first company is still FREE but after the 10th company prices really start to jump, any way this is how the new prices look like.

Company #Price
1FREE
250
370
490
4 - 31+ 30
32 - 54+ 50
55 - 65+ 100
66 - 70+ 200
71 - 90+ 300

So the 5th company is 120 GOLD, if I have 10 companies and I want to open another one it will cost me 300 GOLD, the next will be 330 and so on, after 30 – 40 companies the costs will be HUGE!

Day [384] Banks Implemented

After some testing a new Joint-Stock Company was implemented today in ProEconomica, the Bank. For ~ 1500 Gold + currency (based on your country) you can buy 10% of a newly opened Bank, except the price , administrative wise, everything works just like at the other Joint – Stock Companies.

Banks are straight forward, you can make deposits and get daily interest or take credits and pay a daily fee. You can find the bank options at Market > Stock Market  > Bank

ProEconomica BanksSo far the Banks are unrealistic and … well in my opinion a total failure, owners ¬†can’t offer decent interest rates and that will make the deposit almost useless and pointless, if I make a deposit of 50.000 RON for 30 days I will get the amazing profit of 1.510¬†RON. The credits are even worst, the interest rate here has to be higher so that the banks can afford to pay higher interest rates for the deposit and of course the bank owners need earn some profit too. If I take a credit of 50.000 RON in 30 days I’ll have to pay 80.000 RON and that’s with a 2% interest rate. If you choose to take credits from a bank make sure you double-check the interest rate and wait at least a few days, at the moment there still are some bugs that need fixing.
If I were you I would stay away from credits and I would definitely NOT waste my money by investing in a bank.

 

Proeconomica Update

Several changes have been made this update, Joint-Stock Companies re-implemented, Competition Module Implemented, New Test Server Opened.

Joint-Stock Companies are finally back in ProEconomica, just like the last time, 4 JSC;s were implemented: Gas, Oil, Water and Electricity I have updated the Joint-Stock Company Page with the latest features, go on there and read how they work.

NEW MODULE – ProEconomica Competitions

ProEconomica ContestWhat is that, you ask ? Well now you will be able to ¬†… compete against other players. You can find the competition window under “ProEco Top”. If you want to compete just choose how long the competition should last, 2 hour or 8 hours and then choose an opponent or wait until someone decides to compete with you.

The winner is going to be the one whom has the most sales in 2 hours or 8 hours.

 

 

 

ProEconomica Contests Window

After you start the competition you will be able to see the live stats of ¬†the competition, how much time is left, the name of your opponent and he’s sales in the Contest ¬†Window or under the Contest Button. If you win a 2 hours competition you earn 12 XP and currency ( 100 RON for RO) and for 8 hours you earn 0.5 gold, 25 XP and money (250 RON for RO)

 

As you may have already noticed a new bar appeared between Health and Experience, Energy. This is used for competitions, 2 hours competition drain 12% energy and 8 hour competition use 50%, you gain 4% energy per hour or you can pay 2 gold and restore 50%.

 

ProEconomica Live Contest

 

Also another server has been opened, a test server, so from now on when something is implemented it should have way less bugs and of course now I’ll be able to make updates and tutorials before new modules are implemented on the Live Server. This way you should be already up to speed with the new features when they are implemented.

Joint-Stock Company Update

ProEconomica Team posted a new updated concerning the newly implemented … and removed Joint-Stock Companies.

Unlike the regular companies that generate virtual shares a Joint-Stock Company is a gold factory, it has the capability to generate gold everyday. Therefor a JSC generates 50 gold/day at level 1, after that the amount of generated gold will increase with about 5 gold every level. The earnings can be shared among the shareholders based on the amount of the shares owned.

Joint-Stock Companies main traits:

  • Can be created by one or¬†more players
  • A player must pay at least 10% of the JSC cost to open one
  • To become a shareholder you only need to buy 1% of the total shares
  • The first 3 players with the most shares owned will¬†form the Executive Board/Board of Directors
  • The board of Directors can propose up to 3 shareholders for the General Director (CEO) job.
  • All shareholders can vote after the candidates are chosen
  • All shareholders have equal vote rights no matter how many shares they own
  • In case there is only one founder he will be automatically ¬†become the General Director (CEO) and will receive a salary based on the profit of the company
General Director (CEO) attributes
  • He is in charge of manufacturing
  • Buys the raw materials
  • Converts the earnings in GOLD
  • Distributes the earnings and gold to the shareholders
  • Hires employees
  • Upgrades the level of the Joint-Stock Company
There was also a small update concerning the number of virtual shares generated when leveling up your company :
LevelVirtual Shares
225
350
475
5100
6125
7150
8175
9200
10 - 15200
16 - 20250

 

 


Another Rollback

Unfortunately due to some issues with the newly implemented Joint-Stock Companies the admins were forced to rollback the game with 20 hours. One of the main issue  was that  players were able to buy stocks to Joint-Stock Companies  from all over the world and that was not intended, players were supposed to be able to buy stocks only from companies in their country.

The good news is that the all players will receive a small compensation and JSC’s should be implemented again sometime tomorrow.

Joint-Stock Companies Implemented

Finally, Joint-Stock Companies (JSC) were implemented yesterday ..sort of, they have a lot of bugs at the moment. The 4 JSC’s implemented are Water, Electricity, Oil(Petrol) and Natural Gas, today or sometime soon banks will be implemented as well.

Players can either create a Joint-Stock Company or buy stocks to an already created one, if you choose to open a new one you have to buy at least 10% of the stocks and if you choose to just buy stocks an already created JSC you need to buy at least 1%. No matter if you create a JSC or buy stocks to one for 1% you will have to pay 100 Gold and a certain amount of currency based on your country, in Romania for example is 5.000 RON. So far the earnings details are fuzzy, will announce them when they are confirmed by the admins.

I’ll comeback with an update on JSC’s when they are fully functional until then don’t forget to check out JSC¬†for more info.

New Host & ProE Update

Due to some issues i was force to move ProWiki to a new host, a better one, I hope. Last host was free so the up-time kinda sucked and had a lot of errors, current host is paid so I expect better results :).

That’s all about ProWiki moving on to ProEconomica, as you may have noticed, yesterday ProE was hacked and most players got lots of money, and who knows what other damage has been done. The good news is that the game was rollback-ed with about 20 Hours previously to the hack and hopefully the exploit that allowed the hacker to get in was fixed …

Ohh, if you look a little to the right you can see a “Donate” Button, feel free to use it so ProWiki can be improved ūüôā
