EVE Online: Dominion Revenue Stream Updates
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment
CCP Games has released another new developer blog focusing on upcoming changes to its sci-fi MMO, EVE Online. The post explains how the Dominion update will modify revenue streams in the game, giving players more options for income and making adjustments to current sources of revenue.
With Dominion, we will allow you to increase the potential diffuse income sources in your space by allowing you to upgrade it. This will be explained in a far more detailed blog in the near future, but I can give an overview of it now. Head over to the page below to read more.
EVE Online: Revenue Stream Changes
You will be able to purchase and install upgrades in an infrastructure hub. These upgrades will unlock and add additional resources into your system, such as new hidden belts or encounters to complexes or escalation sites for you to find, thus increasing your potential diffuse income streams and theoretical member resource capacity of each system as a result.
Each upgrade will have a build cost in creating the upgrade and the resource upgrades themselves will have different pre-requisites, some of which will be activity-based, such as NPCs killed or ore mined within the system itself, which will add to the development index of the system. So in this instance, the more the solar system's resources are actively used, the faster your resource development will be, which in turn promotes you to properly invest in the space in terms of active pilots (whether concentrating your existing member base and allies, recruiting new members or making treaties with new allies) and make sure it is used to full benefit, depending on which upgrade level you are seeking or looking to maintain.
In the future, we envision that you will also be able to unlock more exotic types of resources. The system outlined above allows us to easily do this in the future as a great foundation of traditional bread-and-butter income streams combined later with, perhaps, some more exotic resource upgrades. We are sure many of you can imagine the possibilities we are thinking about, too (comets, dark matter, wormholes, space whales, etc.).
