This may be an issue that results from the game being in alpha and new, but there does not seem to be a simple way to make money early on. I understand that this game wants to be player to player based. But early on and for newer players it may be worthwhile to add a system to sell products to the system. If I want to make a ton of lumber, it might be nice to be able to sell to the 'government' at a low price. Ultimately, players will sell to players, but at the start we will need a way to gain capital.
Hey there Badgeward,
This might not be such a bad Idea. I'll forward it to the developers asap.
