The recent discussion on the lost features of the old forum economy finally gave me the motivation to actually start on this project and see if it was even doable. After some effort it turned out it was, and as a result it is my great pleasure to reintroduce The ToO Stock Market!
This is separate from the actual ToO, so money made will not be transferred, but that’s probably for the best. The Stock Market and Job System, as neat as they were, posed several economic problems, as discussed in this thread. This way the experience of playing the Market can be achieved with no effect on the actual ToO economy; it’s a win-win!
This is the same Stock Market mod that the old ToO used, and the stocks themselves are, for the most part, the same ones that were on the original Market. I did some digging through old threads and listed the ones people named. A few I added in myself to fill the list out.
The story of the project:
(I wanted to just type up a little information on the process that brought this about, but it turned out way longer than I planned because the story is somewhat complicated. You can read it if you’re interested or skip this part if you’re not.)
Again, this is separate from the ToO and should only be used as a side-feature. There is a forum for discussions particularly pertaining to the Stock Market on there, but anything else should be kept for here on the ToO. This isn’t a new message board, it’s just a new experience.
I hope you enjoy it!
And as an extra bonus, I also recreated the Regisville theme there so it can be used once again!
You can activate it by going into your profile settings and changing the Board Style from Odyssey to Regisville.
By the way, if anyone is wondering why the Vault there is called the Bank of Fenix that’s a reference to the days of the original Stock Market when Fenix became infamous for making incredible amounts of money off it.
