Fees? FEES?? I WON'T PAY NO STINKING FEES??!!
Yes, that's usually my reaction when I see the dreaded "F" word. But in this case, Fees are a good thing ... really ...
The Official Blurb on Co-op fees.
These fees are intended as a means of stimulating activity therefore providing a better overall experience for all members.
All fees will be paid in units produced (sacks of grain, eggs, etc.) and/or RP Coins. L$ are NOT required. Fees are paid on a regular basis to the Estate Manager (MikhailDokuchic Resident). Payment rates will evolve according to current economic conditions (i.e. to keep things fun & interesting).
First off, fees make this activity more challenging but the real reason for using them is to spread the wealth around. Everything collected will be put back into the community in some way or another. Now about those "evolving payment rates" here's the current plan ...
Regular Co-op Members
One unit from each crop tended due on the 10th & 25th of the month i.e. approximately one third of their total production.
For example, if you are farming one field of wheat and one field of grapes you will pay one sack of grain and one basket of grapes twice a month.
For the new 3.0 Fields (tomatoes, grapes etc.) you may deliver your payment in either a sack or a basket (3.0 grapes only please). If a basket it used, it will be returned to you as soon as the produce is processed.
Ten barrels of water due on the 10th of the month. This is to help with the "self-watering" fields instead of having to haul your own barrels. Extra water is always appreciated.
Co-op Fees will not be charged on products that can be "gathered" such as fish.
Co-op Fees will not be charged on fields which are owned by tenants.
Selling merchandise (RP products only) in the QH Market (up to a limit of LI=10) is free for everyone already paying a regular Co-op fee.
