Trade system rework

#1 2017-11-16 18:10:35
GBT remake

How I would make a trade system:

1.You can only request items/resources. This is to force the player to create trades with good prices.
2.There is a trade AI. This AI always requests as much as you have. The price of the AI is orientated at the price player pay. To make it hard to manipulate and to stabilize prices, it would increase by one of a trade sells that costs more then it, and it would decrease by one if a trade sells this is below it. All AI prices will start at 10% of what a good price is.
3. whenever you request, your maximum price for that you request is limited by the highest priced deal that is on the market at the moment. You can only increase the price of the offer by 10-20%, but you can always request for lower prices.

Edit: When you have the max prices offer, you can't make a new one.
4. A limited amount of offers open/cancel offer button. To prevent ppl from spamming, you shouldn't be allowed to have more then 25 request open. But when you request, you have to pay 10% of the money you give for transport costs. Not civic anymore.
5. Only the 10 best priced offers are displayed, but there should be a button to show them all
6. You should see a graph that shows how the price behaved in the last 7 days or so.
7. another AI suggestion: if ppl are selling much stuff to the AI, the price will drop too.

There should be an option for private trades away from the open GBT trades to allow people to transfer/help others not in the same commonwealth without skewing the prices. It could be just restricted to essentials like food, water and basic building materials.

Transmission hub require charter code and embassy requires some investment. What if both the colony is pre independence? Gifting is one way street. What if both has excess reso they want to trade without being taxed?

Also any trades not taxed under GBT run the risk of being intercepted by the Emperor esp large values over a certain figures.
