Also would like to mention that players that have established big factories and have bases at tiles with t3 and up would not be taxed accordingly, therefore will be easy for them to get more profit per tile. And all new players we'll be forced to sell t1 and if they get luck may be t2 for next to nothing so they can pay tax.
There already jobs on the forum that pay 200000 pre charge so in a week I can make 35 calibrations ( roughly regenerate one charge every 5 hours) so it will be 6-7M without me paying taxes on the land. That's almost the same as me managing my 7 tiles of t1.
I, as a solo player can keep up with only 14 MU a week.( That's to calibrate my MU every second day) that means I would need around 4 tiles of t1 let's say I have 5 HQ together and mining only on 4 and on the 5th I don't mine and don't pay tax just for bonus. Ballpark of one MU I guess around 125L/H. So 14x125x24x7=290,000 L per week of t1.
Let's do 35 charges, that will also give me let's say 3750L per calibration.
So its 131,250L
Let's be generous and sell it at 30 per liter.
So it's 8.8m as per MU
And its 3.9m as per harvest and it is constant unless you get faster charges.
Tax is 4M not paying for the 5th HQ
Profit is 8.7M
But you have to harvest all the ore take it to the market.
6-7 M per week to sell your charges sounds great. Just do your thing and VR for couple of millions every 2 days.
Even if you get 7 tiles and 28 units you cannot run them same efficiency as 14-16 MU.
With 28 MU will be in about 100 l/h
28x100x24x7=470,400 x 30 perper liter = 14,112,000
plus 3.9m as per harvest and it is constant unless you get faster charges.
Tax is 7M
Profit 11M for double time
That's 2.3M for double of work, double of equipment and almost double of tiles to get and pay for.
All of that hopefully will make t1 more rare and it will bump up in price. For now it doesn't work time to mine t1. It worth to sell charges and live on Sanctuary moon or any other HQ if you can afford it.
Btw my Sanctuary tile is almost 500. Let's say my 4 units will be getting 400 per hour, thats about 67,200 L per week sell for 30 will be 2M
And 14 charges to do it will be 52,500 L sell for 30 and 1.575M
Sell the rest 21 charge at 200,00p ant its 4.2M
And total 7.775M also the fuel cost to go sell it.
In my opinion the tax should be based on goods produced and income made rather than per property. I never heard of one who makes let's say 1,000 a month to be taxted a same amount as a person or a business that make 1,000,000 a month this is an absurd! Unless I guess we are in DU.
If I build a ship and pay that for all that I bought at the market when I loose it where is my tax rebate? By the way we already paying taxes at the market!
So for now I guess I got my self a part-time job so I can continue to build and explore the vast space of DU. Soon if feel like I would have to hitchhike around coz I would not be able to afford a space capeble ship and fuel it to go see around. Hey that's why they have a VR folks.
Sometimes I get feeling that me play in DU is like my video card mining crypto except in DU I pay to them to use me as a labour to mine hash for them!
