Survival Guide - Dust Settles: CEP Minting
Making your own CEP is very useful in this
post-apocalyptic world. CEPs are required for so many different parts of daily
life that having the opportunity to make some in camp instead of gaining them
all through trade can be very appealing.
You will have a number of limitations related to purchasing a license, but this
can give you the extra CEPs you need to help cover the many costs of running
If you have 2,500 CEPs it might be worth it to invest in a minting license
from the Neutral Exchange Camp. This will
provide you the ability to staff up to twice your current Marketing research
for production of CEPs each day. Each CEP will cost 1 building
supply to produce and each person can produce 15 CEPs per day. When you
purchase a license you must also give up your ability to produce offensive weaponry.
This can be a high cost, but a good alliance
or the Trade Market can help you build up
some reserves for battle.
You are very limited in the amount of CEPs that you can make with a minting
license. The Neutral Exchange Camp isn't
going to want the market flooded with massive amounts of CEPs or the coins
will be worth nothing. So part of your license contains the limit of the number
of people that can be assigned to work on CEPs. The number of people that you
can assign to your minting facility is equal to 2 times your Marketing research.
If this happens to not be an integer, this number will be rounded down to the
nearest integer, i.e. a 2.5 in Marketing means you can staff 5 people, but a
2.4 means you can staff 4.
If you decide that you no longer want to mint the CEPs yourself for whatever
reason, you can sell your license back to the Neutral
Exchange Camp for a refund of 1,000 CEPs. You can buy and sell a minting
license as many times as you want with no penalty other than the decreased refund.
This selection can be found on the right-hand
side of your screen, in the panel with the other Neutral
Exchange Camp features. This is where you can purchase and sell your minting
license. Click the button to buy a license to get started minting your own CEPs.
You need to have at least 1 messenger
assigned before you can access this feature.
This page will allow you to assign up to the maximum number of people that
you are allowed for minting. The number that you can assign is listed just above
the text box so that you don't have to guess or constantly recheck. Once you
update the number of people assigned, the production rate and daily supplies
cost will be updated to reflect the new number of mint workers. If you get into
a bind you can, of course, unassign the workers on this page as well.
