Trading & Transport
This represents upcoming functionality in ULAND, and is subject to change.
Please see our Roadmap for further details.
Once you have amassed Resources, you may wish to sell them in-game on the Marketplace to other Players or trade them for valuable items.
➡️ If a Player is Harvesting Resources from a Mine or Stone Quarry for example, these Resources will be sent to the Warehouse connected to the Business.
⬅️ If a Player is purchasing Resources in the Marketplace, these Resources wil also be sent to the Player's Warehouse.
In Land Explorer mode, by virtue of Players owning Hex Plots adjacent to each other, they have automatically established Trade Routes with one another. This enables any Players on the same Trade Route to trade Resources with one another on the Marketplace.
Transporting Resources through Trade Routes is subject to a 💵 Transport Fee and ⏱️ Transport Time.
Transport Time and Transport Fees are based upon the amount of Hex Plots the Resources are required to Travel through to reach the Warehouse based upon the shortest route to its destination.
The entire Transport Tax is equally distributed amongst each Owner of every Hex Plot involved in the Trade Route and paid in $ULAND Token.
Transport Tax Calculation:
Number of Hex Plots Travelled (Amount of Resources to Transport Factor) = Transport Fees
For instance, a Player's Resources needs to travel across 10 Hex Plots to reach their Warehouse, and each Hex Plot costs 200 ULAND and five minutes to traverse, the sum of the Transport Fees and Transport Time would equal 2,000 ULAND and 50 minutes.
In this fashion, an element of strategy is involved in all construction and expansion even with Trade Routes considered, to become a mercantile lord!
Hex plots can span across multiple countries or state borders in some cases.
In these situations, the percentage of the Border Tax is honoured to the Owner of the State (T2) or Country (T1) for which the majority of the Hex Plot’s land area resides in.
Crossing seas & waterways incur a higher tax. No official information has yet been divulged on how ULANDERS will cross seas yet. 🌊
