So after reading around the forums and observing what was said during the livestream it appears the average number of a "small" Clan is from 10-20. The biggest thing people want is a way to make people participate in the clan and not simply jump ship once the weapons are done. Scaling is extremely hard and would not work easily, so here's a different take on how to adjust material costs:

One of the major parts of entering the clan is the Clan Key. Every member of the Clan needs to make this to gain use of entering the Clan. Since it is required by every member we're going to change the cost to make this key so it requires a bit more work to get. The key is going to require the following materials:

  • 1 Forma
  • 1 Morphics
  • 500 Polymer Bundle
  • 500 Ferrite

Now we have spent at least 10-20 Forma for our members to use our clan functions. Sure they could just walk in, but with the requirement to use the features it makes the player invest a bit more in the clan Where do we go from here?

Currently to do the bare minimum for Clan Research you need 75 Forma. We're going to change this up again. We're going to reduce Forma Costs to 1 per room. Sounds great right? Well I hate to bring a downer on you, but we're going to make you upgrade your clan key. To upgrade your key again we're going to require another 5 Forma. This 5 Forma will allow you to buy the blueprints from the Oracle room. So where does this leave us for Forma use?

In a Clan of 10: 60 from members to use clan functions and upgrade to buy blueprints. Another 7 to build the basic research rooms.

In a Clan of 1000: 6000 from members to use clan functions and upgrade to buy blueprints. Another 7 to build the basic research rooms.

What happened?

We have created scaling for Clans using Forma, but not resources. With this measure, we can lower the costs of rooms by a substantial amount to allow greater customization for large clans with a lot of resources, but not penalizing small clans that can't gather as much.

Why?

Because by charging the member for the Forma, you scale the Clan on a personal level rather than a Clan level. With the Forma Cost of 1 per room, you allow a Clan to slowly build themselves up over time, but even a single member clan would be able support themselves.

Room Costs

Since we're reducing it to 1 Forma per room, I'm not going to list this as the suggested materials. Also let's change hallways and elevators to 12 hours, and the rest of the rooms to 24 hours for construction:

What do we do about Clans right now?

The honest truth would be to offer a complete reset. Refund all the Clan Members all their materials, Forma, and Platinum. This may result in refunding Forma for platinum as well. Let Clan Members keep the recipes they have made in the Research rooms for more testing and possibly give all members the blueprints from the R&D.

Again thank you to all my friends and companions on the forums for helping me come to different conclusions
