New Program Lets You Buy Land to do with 'As You See Fit'

New Program Lets You Buy Land to do with 'As You See Fit' - MMORPG.com

Roberts Space Industries is selling Star Citizen fans and players claim licenses used for parcels of land in two sizes. For $50, you can own a 4km x 4km plot or for $100, you can cozy up to an 8km x 8km parcel. The purchase price also includes a "Geotack marking beacon" to easily find your slice of the heavens as well as to provide you with real-time information on local weather. While available for real world dollars, players can also earn parcels through normal gameplay progress.

There is an extensive FAQ available that provides answers to most burning questions including whether or not there is any advantage to owning land (there isn't) and whether or not players can buy the "best" plots (there isn't with billions of square kilometers).

Will players claiming the “best” plots of land on day one be an issue?

No. Due to the billions of square kilometres of available land over many planets and moons and of course as new Star Systems are introduced and explored, all players will have the ability to find and claim new “hot spots” throughout the lifetime of the game. Also, every player can have their own reason for what could be the ‘best’ piece of land, while some may judge a plot of land based on the type and quantity of natural resources that it contains, others might be looking for proximity to trade routes, and others could simply look for a quiet spot with a beautiful vista. This – combined with the fact that there’s an enormous amount of real estate available – means that prospecting and the purchase of land are two pieces of a supply-and-demand equation governing how rapidly land of a distinct perceived value will come on the market.
