Minor Trader Shop Update · on 02/19/2021 20:32 331
Hi folks.

I've made a minor update to the SHOP STATUS output while in your shop. If your shop is failing due to the low income status (not making enough in a given month to cover your rent, regardless of the shop's coffers), you'll now see extra messaging noting the rent increase it causes. Example from a test shop I was in:


>shop status
This pay period, your shop has:

-Made 0 sales for a total income of 0 Kronars.*
-Incurred a total of 0 Kronars in expenses.
-A current bank account of 17688031 Kronars.

* This amount will be credited to your shop's bank account at the end of the pay period, which will end in 23 andaen (5 RL days). Your base rent this pay period will be 547500 Kronars.
Continuing lack of prosperity of this shop (2 periods in a row) will cause the rent assessed to increase to 2190000 (219.0 platinum)!




To illustrate the escalating nature, these would show for their respective months:

Continuing lack of prosperity of this shop (3 periods in a row) will cause the rent assessed to increase to 4927500 (492.75 platinum)!
Continuing lack of prosperity of this shop (4 periods in a row) will cause the rent assessed to increase to 8760000 (876.0 platinum)!
Continuing lack of prosperity of this shop (5 periods in a row) will cause the rent assessed to increase to 13687500 (1368.75 platinum)!
Continuing lack of prosperity of this shop (6 periods in a row) will cause the rent assessed to increase to 19710000 (1971.0 platinum)!
Continuing lack of prosperity of this shop (7 periods in a row) will cause the rent assessed to increase to 26827500 (2682.75 platinum)!
Continuing lack of prosperity of this shop (8 periods in a row) will cause the rent assessed to increase to 35040000 (3504.0 platinum)!




For those unfamiliar with this, Socharis had a number of posts discussing it in the Shops topic. For a quick reference:

To be clear, since we see ASSISTs from folks unfamiliar with it, this is not a new mechanic. My update tonight simply makes it easier to spot when you're being affected and at risk. If your shop is profitable and you're not at risk, that extra line won't show up at all. Hopefully this new visibility will help folks avoid some painful fees or even the loss of a shop going forward.

This update is live everywhere. Please let us know if you have questions!
