The public group I’m part of, SUD, has come up with a very big issue when it comes to the new land prices. The simple fact is that the new land prices prevent proper regioning for our projects.
Here’s an example - The SR3 road design, which we built before the new changes came into effect, now costs us F150 to region per block. That means a road that is 100 blocks long will now cost us F15000 to region. That is a massive cost.
The more inexpensive design we’re using now, the SR2 design, is still F90 per block. To be honest, even with this reduced price it is still becoming unreasonable for us to region the road. And that brings on a few issues (quite obviously - so I won’t discuss the specifics).
So with all of that, what I am proposing is that a new non-profit land value clause is created the same way a private city clause has been created. I’m recommending that this price become F5 so we can still get to work on these projects. We’re even open to having the same rules that government highways have.
I’m not asking for this out of some self-centred way. We do these projects to link up our region in areas that the government won’t usually connect. And reducing the price of the land we need to region will help us with that.
