Home, home on the range

Another historical influence that can be applied would be the Range Wars. The cattle barons and their drivers (cowboys), thought they too had a perfect trade system going on. The cattle were self replenishing and both feeding and watering them was free on the open ranges.

In a broad sweep, we can say that barbed wire and shepherds took away the open range. If it wasn’t fenced off, it was considered to be free for use. And the sheep ate the grass down to the ground.

With the initial expansion, resources are open and free. But some Spacers are going to settle and consider the resources to be their property. Inbound ACC better have something to trade or be ready to work for refueling.
