Swap Spot swaps your Ore for Elements, you don’t need Quanta, nothing to buy, just Swap!

 

Swap Spot is your own personal industry without you needing to know a thing about industry!

Don’t waste time digging needlessly, comparing prices and traveling from market to market, get popular Elements at Swap Spot!

 

Swap Spot is much more than a combination of Industry and Market!

 

Swap Spot is hundreds of times faster than nano-pack crafting and substantially faster than traditional industry complexes.

 

Swap Spot delivers a variety of Elements simultaneously and in volume, without you needing to touch an industry machine or know a single recipe!

 

Swap Spot runs at maximum resource efficiency and evaluates ore fairly, unlike traditional markets that often pay a fraction of what its worth.

 

Swap Spot is vertically integrated, cutting out all the middle men!

 

Swap Spot’s efficiency and fairness means that your ore is worth more, which means more Elements and less digging!

 

Swap Spot enables Ore Freedom! Only got coal to swap? No problem! Swap Spot will still make Elements for you!

 

That’s right, you DO NOT need to provide the exact ore needed to make the elements you need!

 

Just provide Swap Spot with the ore it needs. That’s Ore Freedom – that’s Swap Spot!

 

 

How does Swap Spot work?

 

* Your ore is assigned Resource Points, RP for short.

 

* The higher the RP, the more valuable that ore is to the Swap Spot.

 

* Elements have a set RP value.

 

* Swap Spot swaps the ore RP value for the Element RP value.

 

 

2121180237_SwapSpotMadisControls.thumb.png.9db100cc94789a71b8070acebdc6a1da.pngStep 1) Determine that you have enough ores at the value shown to order the elements you need.

 

Step 2) Simply click the name of the element(s) you want on the screen.

 

Step 3) Using the +1 / +10 / -1 / -10 buttons assign the number of element you want

 

Step 4) you can use the <Page / Page> buttons to move through the several pages of available elements.

 

Step 5) The total order value is shown on the top of the screen, assuming you have enough ores to start the transaction click on the ORDER button at the bottom of the screen.

 

Note: You can order multiple different elements at the same time speeding up the process dramatically.

Step 6) Once you order your elements simply deposit the ores you wish to swap in the provided container hubs.

 

The ore gets removed and Resource Points, RP's, are assigned to your order and are tallied at the bottom of the screen.

 

(Please make sure you have enough ore to fully pay for your order.)

Step 7) Then simply wait for the Swap Spot to deliver your order - note deliveries can take several minutes, so please be patient.

 

When an element arrives in a container hub the light next to it will flash :D

 

Note: Swap Spot delivers the higher Resource Point elements first.

Step 8 ) Once you have all your items simply leave the Swap Pod.

 

This will auto end the transaction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Swap Spot makes getting Elements easy!

 

Oh, you don't have ores? No problems! Swap Spot is surrounded by six, yes SIX hexes for surface rock gathering!  Sure, its not ideal, but, it means you can go from zero to hero in a very short time!

 

(And its also great for parking!)

 

 

Swap Spot is ideal for newbies, veterans, individuals and corps alike; anyone who wants the best value for their ore!

I haven't reinvented quanta at all, Resource Points (RP's), are simply the value that the Swap Spot puts on ores to make the Elements it provides. It's a personalised factory, not a market as such. ;)

It seems to me that you have invented a new currency that only works in your system.

Your description of RP's could be the exact same description as quanta.

Personalised factory just means that it does not offer as much as a market.  

The horrible marketing makes me want to throw up. 

That said the game is supposed to switch to player run markets at some stage so well done.  I imagine that player run or org run markets will become necessary in the future as market owners begin to refuse service to certain competitor orgs.

If a game makes you throw up, I suggest you take a step back, get some air and reevaluate your lifestyle choices.  Smh.

Currency is a general, wide area use, value representation mechanism. The Swap Spots Resource Points are an internal value just to the Swap Spot, its not general use nor wide spread, so its not a currency. In fact, one Swap Spot will have different RP values to another Swap Spot, as RP's are a gauge as to 'how hungry' each Swap Spot is for various ores.

Secondly, its not meant to compete with an NQ run market, thats not what it does. What it does do is allow anyone who can harvest a rock, or mine a node, to directly turn that ore, with high industry efficiency, without them needing to know a thing about industry, into a usable element within minutes.  ;)

I like it.  Not sure we would ever use it, but I like the concept.  Probably needs to be updated almost hourly due to fluctuating ore values.

The ore values are based on what the Swap Spot needs, and not market quanta values, and thats updated every minute ;)

 

For example, current Resource Point Values: unknown.png

 

Ores that have 0.0RP means that the Swap Spot has either too much of that particular ore, or, it has no use/need for that

ore at this time.

Swap Spot is pleased to announce major upgrades that make using Swap Spot simpler as well as speeding up ore collection times by around 400%!

We have also introduced a built in RP calculator which is integrated into the title bar of the Swap Spot Element Ordering Screen.

So come on over and help us test this beast as well as pick up an element or ten in the process.
