As of today, you can buy properties new Tier2 properties.
If the land is not yet owned by anybody, you can just select it by mouse, click on Details and Buy Now. You pay the price Earth two asks for the new land. This price differs for each country (expect UAE). You can buy 1 to 750 tiles. The cells doesn't have to be next to each other.
Tiles with red backgrounds and usually overlaid by a country flag are owned by other players. You can use the bid button to place your offer to the player. When you bid your money is reserved until the transaction is finalized or until you withdraw your bid. We cannot use this money for buying elsewhere.
Currently in Phase II, when you become an owner of the property, it will generate jewels and essence. Every day you can check new jewels in the resource menu while essence appears in the profile menu. The estimate is that you receive a jewel for every 200-600 tiles (depending on size or class). You receive randomly one of the seven jewels. These valuables increase essence generation and in the future will help resource generation.
Once you have a mentar on the property, it generates e-ther. Ether can be converted to essence. Roughly 100 tiles generate 1 e-ther and it randomly converts to the essence or not. Mentars can be built in two ways. Either you pay E$5 per property or if you want to get them for free, visit your profile for 7 days and wait another 7 days and all your properties will get mentars.
When you enter and apply anyone's referral code 7.5% of the money will be returned to you. The other player gets 7.5% as well. You can use our code guide, referral code of your city, or change the codes to support your sibling, favorite YouTuber, or some Earth2's non-profit organization, it doesn't matter. Just use the code to get 7.5% back. The code you used last time is prefilled, but hit apply to get the bonus.
Until Dec-04 2021 all tiles were Tier1 split to class 1-5.
The First 100 000 tiles sold in each country are Class 1. The next 200K (up to 300K) are class two. Following 300K (up to 600K) are class 3. And class 5 starting at a million.
Class one tiles are the first one bought in the country, which mean they are the cheapest, starting at E$0.1. It's also speculated that advertisement in class 1 will result in higher profit. The only country where you can buy new class 1 is Nauru. Many players sell class 1 tiles on the marketplace.
Firstly, you have no choice. If you want to buy new land, there's no more Class 1 left. You can wait for a new country release, but last time it took seconds to sell all the Class 1 tiles. If you want class one tiles, rather look on the marketplace.
Tier2 tiles were introduced in Dec-2021. The price started at $0.1 again and the price increase is not so steep. This way, the new players can afford to enter Earth2 at a reasonable price.
They are cheap. Do you want to get creative with the Earth2 virtual land engine? You need land. Because the regular classes are expensive, you can purchase the base class. It won't yield any resources, but you can construct there. This way new players will be encouraged to join the game, they buy cheap properties, learn the game and maybe buy some expensive regular class tiles later.
Everytime someone buys a property in a country, the price for the country goes a little bit up. It starts slow, but later the increase gets significant.
In the beginning, the players were buying tiles in popular places in the US, Germany, UK, Italy, or Korea. Many other countries were off the radar and that is why the developers of the megacities have picked them and bought land for their projects. Watch the Earth2 statistics to see where you can still buy the cheap new land. Link to statistics on the main page.
Before it's bough you can't see the class. You can however guess it (remember 0-100K is class 1, 100K-300K class 2 ...) and many sites offering Earth2 statistics suggest which class is currently sold in the country. When you open the details of existing properties, class is one piece of information you see.
When you own land in a country, you are eligible for an income tax. Earth2 shares part of the profit from sales of the tiles in this country with you. Every player who owns properties in the country receives a tiny portion of the new sales in that country.
Class 1 receives a higher portion than classes 2 and 3. It's suspected that class 4 doesn't receive any LIT.
Did you find a plot you like. In it's details click on Bid button and make an offer to the owner.
You must have enough credit to cover the whole bid. This capital is blocked until the bid is accepted or declined and you cannot use it to buy other properties.
You can easily forget about the old bids. When you miss money for a new purchase, check your transactions for 'Bid made' or your notification queue. Go to the property and cancel the bid. Money are released immediately.
Do you own an attractive land? Sooner or later someone will place a bid on it. You will receive a notification and it's time to think about it and react.
Is the offer attractive. Accept it. Your property will be sold and you get the money. If you think it's reasonable, but you might gain a bit more, place a counter offer. Maybe it will be accepted. You can let the other party wait and don't do anything, but if you are sure you don't won't to sell, decline the bid.
You must bid at least 30% of the last property trade. A warning will appear if it's less and you won't be able to bid.
If you agree with the counterpart, you can do multiple exchanges, each time going to 30% of the previous trade. Make sure you know the seller not to lose your money.
Every trade on the property increase the value of its improvements fee. It's the tax Earth2 takes from your trade profit, but we expect it will have a role in the future.
When you sell for a higher price, Earth2 takes a 5% fee, which gets marked as the property's improvement fee. We don't know yet if it will have any role in the game, but people speculate you can invest in your property and increase the number of resources it creates.
This image from Shane's tweet suggest how the game experience will look like. If you buy 1 tile you can build a thing. Purchasing bigger land will give you more options. There were suggestions that you can let others build on your property and increase its value. That will for sure happen in the cities, where synergy with others creates miracles. If you can't affort a vast plot, join one of the 1Tile nation and Ξ²Islands projects and you can enjoy the community with a little investment. Want to know more about property sizes? Watch this awesome Earth2 Odyssey video explaning the tile sizes and shapes.
Everybody looks forward when Virtual and Augmented reality will enter Earth2. Both will attract different investors. VR can be accessed from anywhere through location address and portals. But AR will be cool for advertising on the spots with high traffic like railway stations, shopping malls, squares and parks.
Nathaniel talked on the discord that small terrain changes will be possible. The real Earth terrain will define the appearance of your plot. You should think about whether you plan a terraced hotel overlooking a valley or want a skyscraper on the flat ground. In this videoEarth2 Meta discuss pros and cons of the hilly and levelled plots.
