We’re excited to announce Eco Alpha 5.5 is now available!
  1. Sales Tax. This tax is applied on sales in a store (buying or selling).
  2. Labor Tax. This tax is applied on contract payments.
  3. Crafting Tax. This tax is applied on fees specified on a table.
  4. Direct Payment Tax. This tax is applied when using the /pay command to pay other users.
  5. Taxes are collected in any currency used in the server, thus the treasury may contain multiple currencies if there are multiple currencies in the world.
  6. The server leader can also allocate funds, choosing which players get how much money, and why. This can be used especially for public works projects, funding the construction of roads etc. A global message will be sent when funds are allocated.

Features and fixes
  • Carts physics has been improved and should be less frustrating.
  • Property claim visualization
  • Added /unclaim command for admins
  • Added hotkeys to some action bar buttons
  • Farming and Agriculture simulation now includes nutrients and fertilizers.
  • Oil is now a finite resource.
  • Tailoring has added some new craftable clothing options that give minor bonuses. Note: tailoring as a whole is still early in development with more to come in the future.
  • Drag and resize cursors, and more flexible window resizing
  • Links in text that can have tooltips and perform various actions when clicked
  • Automatic addition of said links to player chat messages
  • Tooltips for many items have been improved significantly
  • Vocal sound effects
  • New sound and effects for tree logging. Felling trees is destructive to the immediate area of the tree, and will destroy any plants when the tree hits the ground.
  • More notes here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FSE-q9BlXSL7jRpF04-gXihtXvbd8Rnxt49JQNfEuEc/edit#

Enter the world of Eco, where you must team-up to build civilization and prevent a disaster, using resources from a fully simulated ecosystem, where your every action affects the lives of countless species.

Will you and your fellow builders collaborate successfully, creating laws to guide player actions, finding a balance that takes from the ecosystem without damaging it? Or will the world be destroyed by short-sighted choices that pollute the environment in exchange for immediate resource gains? Or, do players act too slowly, and the world is consumed by a disaster that could have been avoided if you developed the right technology? In Eco, you must find a balance as a group if the world is to survive.

A world-survival game
Eco is a survival game in a global sense, where it is not just the individual or group who is threatened, but the world itself. The world of Eco will be home to a population of thousands of simulated plants and animals of dozens of species, each living out their lives on a server running 24 hours a day, growing, feeding and reproducing, with their existence highly dependent on other species.

Enter humans into this equation, and things get complicated. It is the role of players to thrive in this environment by using resources from the world to eat, build, discover, learn and invent. However, every resource they take affects the environment it is taken from, and without careful planning and understanding of the ecosystem, lands can become deforested and polluted, habitats destroyed, and species left extinct.

In the extreme, the food supply of the ecosystem can be destroyed, along with all human life on it, resulting in server-wide perma-death. Eco is a game where the player’s actions have meaningful consequences.
