Phantom market orders?

Postby evoluder » Thu Oct 20, 2016 9:40 pm

Hi, been playing a couple days, recently ran into this.

Find a player colony/station selling something, find someone else buying it at an insane price (e.g. 50k/unit).

Buy item, go to place offering insane price, load market, click 'max' next to item. I see the message at the top of the screen indicating something is happening. Then poof, no trade happens, and the order disappears.

I'm assuming this is some kind of trolling?

This is the Stock Market issue we are hoping to see addressed soon. What happens is the search feature checks for buy or sell orders, but does not check to see if the player has the credits or room in their warehouses for that order. Once you arrive and try to trade, that check happens and the order does not complete because of one of these issues and it disappears from the order list.

So basically, known issue that should be addressed soon, or Louie will be asked to retaliate.

Does this bug also impact NPCs that are trying to trade?

Good question. It could. Jam would have to say for sure. Not sure they use the same search tool we do.

While it can i suppose, I have noticed NPC trades can overload your wh if the order is too high to store. It may only effect a portion of the issue (such as limited space). I can also assume if the player traded with is broke, then NPC are effected in that regard tho (since there is no money to obtain).

Just my thoughts.
