Upgrade to cargo running: Revamping cargo passes and introducing freeports

Miros has introduced a great new feature that builds on his cargo smuggling work (changes 1259 for more on that). The cargo-running/embargo system has been expanded to provide governing clans with a new source of credits: selling cargo passes.

By default, players must now obtain a cargo-running permit to buy or sell cargo on a planet. These are issued by clan and planetary leaders using the leadplanet cargopass skill.

Planetary leaders have the option to turn their planet into a freeport or not using ‘leadplanet freeport’.

Governments can still enact trade embargoes like they used to, and cargo passes will no longer allow players to bypass embargoes.

The bribe skill also now allows players to turn away nosy customs agents.

To recap! Planets by default now need a cargo pass. Planets fall into one of three states: default, trade embargo, freeport.

In all three states, cargo can be smuggled.

Miros’ Changelog:

  • Crash fix for blocking exits in turbolifts
  • Planets can now be set as freeports. If a planet is not a freeport, it REQUIRES the use of a permit to buycargo/sellcargo
  • leadplanet can be used to set freeport status on a planet, as well as issue cargo passes
  • buycontraband / sellcontraband now work on all planets always
  • Bribe can be used to cause police / customs / troops mobs to go away, for a price

Help IMMChat is a rule, not a guideline or suggestion
HELP IMMCHAT. Read it. Learn it. Live it. As of today, those who do not abide by this rule will not be answered. Period. That means any immchats of 'Hey, anyone there?' or any other variation of that will be met with stark silence. And, using assistance after saying 'Hey, anyone there?' and not receiving an answer will lead you to a heap of trouble. Not trying to be rude, but with fewer of us around, I don't have time to a)Sort through the bull to find the issues and b)Read through 3 hours of assistance spam. Thanks in advance.

Tatooine Commission Finds Zero Impact
It has been over a decade since the destruction of the Baktoid Medical Center saw tonnes of toxic material spew forth into the Tatooine sky causing massive environmental harm to the Mos Eisley region. In the years that followed, a local commission was created to run a ten year long study on the long term effects of the exposure to the unknown chemicals that filled the skies that fateful day. Well, the study has been concluded and the results are now being made public by lead research Merest Zall. "Greetings everyone, after careful study and long term observation, we have been able to conclude that there has been no long lasting effects from the exposure and that Tatooine is well on it's way to a full recovery. We took samples of the flora and fauna native to the planet and ran numerous tests over the last ten years and found no significant deviations in their genetic structure pre-disaster and do not anticipate any further issues arising."

Ithor elects Oblatt Baal
On an assembly area, on the planet Ithor, the newly apponted Senator, a very strong, good looking reddish brown skinned Ithorian male timidly takes the podium. "My name is Oblatt Baal and I speak tonight for the dignity of all beings and the destiny of Ithor and of the Republic." His voice cracks slightly, and he seems slightly embarrassed, "I once was a Priest of the Mother Jungle, once destined to lead the Herd, yet my path has taken me in a different direction, further than I ever imagined. The future doesnt belong to the fainthearted: it belongs to the brave." He continues and his voice begins to grow in confidence, become more fervent, "This moment is so much bigger than me. This is for every nameless, faceless citizen of the Ithor, of any race and any color and I do solemnly swear to fight for and uphold the rights of all of my cherished people that now have an equal chance at betterment because they have been given, nay, they have chosen a voice in the Republic Union. Everything I value most in my life, you the people of Ithor, the people of the Republic, have given me." His voice seems to hum melodically as he comes to the close of his speech, "The Galaxy has been through much in recent times and those of us have felt the pangs of loss, of hurt and of destruction can rest easier. But, it is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought have thus far so nobly advanced. And stand together, in peace, for prosperity, for the betterment of future generations."
