Yacht- I'm thinking +FHC(luxury), Travel(boat), Slow(boat), Big (transport ability), Gym(cruiseliner), Games(casino), Shops(cruise liner), almost 900 million in benefits, and Torn Access (Internet laptop).[/i]
Yacht benefits should be the following:
1.) Upon arriving at your destination and returning from your destination. You should arrive with full happy and full energy. If you trip is over 5 hrs(full energy timeline) then your energy will increase more(relaxed, vacation, chilled out). The energy time increase would be the same with a ceiling of 300E (ex. 10 hours of travel = 300E). If you go to Africa and use E, then The E increase starts from whatever E you have leftover.
2a.) Have boat, will travel. Who buys a boat just for it to sit in the harbor? I agree with an earlier post. If you are required to have a pilot for the airstrip, it should only be fair that you would have to purchase a captain.
2b.) It would also be fair to say this; If you could send your boat off to a country to make runs for you. You would not have the increased E benefit. You cannot access your airstrip during the time your boat is gone. So instead of just having a pilot. You can upgrade your pilot to a pilot/captain. So that if you wanted to send your boat off and fly, you would have to do it through Torn's Travel Agency. Longer flight time + you have to pay. Also when you send your pilot/captain you pay for the distance traveled.
2c.) The opposite of sending your boat is riding on it, additional benefits below for riding below.
3.) Everyone knows planes are faster than boats. Planes travel 500+ mph, Boats eh.. 25mph. That's 20 times slower, so in real-life that would take wayy too long to travel somewhere and back, unless you have an autopilot/captain. So for game-sake; the travel time should be 50% longer.
4.) Item transport - boats are bigger than planes. So the item capacity should be doubled to +20 vice 10 items. The overall math should be that a plane can transport the same amount of items in half the time. Or give the yacht a slight advantage.
5.) I agree with gym workouts on board. If there is a gym in jail, why not at sea?Strength - general weights - not the full gym weights due to space restrictions, so the percentage increase would be lower.
Speed - You can run laps around the boat. Again, smaller than gym so percentage increase is lowered.
6.) Casino- just so you are not taken too far away from Torn due to the increased travel times. All Casino benefits should be available when traveling.
7.) Shops - well one shop actually. Item expensive in nature(tourist trap) but useful, drugs, and E and Happy Refills(if you use all your e in Africa, you can pay $$ to start your e back at 100 or 150. More money in port, less at sea. Also the ability to "rent" the Internet computers.
8.) I know I'm going more into a cruse liners benefits than a yacht, but you gotta admit the ideas can be more diverse.
