Stock Market Issues

Postby Phaedruss » Mon Nov 23, 2015 4:31 pm

I just had a rather annoying time jumping all over the inner sectors trying to sell to SMs asking to buy. 9/10 SMs I visited could not buy, I assume either because the player was out of cash, or out of storage. Neither should be able to happen. I suggest that when a player places a buy order, the funds AND storage space be placed in escrow until the order is filled or cancelled.

As it is, the SM search is effectively useless, you just can't trust it.

For some reason the SM search is not getting updated when material is bought by a player. As has been said on many occasions, I have tried to sell to a Stock Market and nothing happens, but if you close and reopen the SM window the buy order disappears. I have taken to clicking Sell Max on all items for sale even if I do not have any of the item on board just to see what happens. In most cases where something is amiss, the line disappears, but I have noticed that in some cases the quantity does get reduced even if I have sold nothing.

I have really only noticed this on sales to Stock Markets and not when purchasing from Stock Markets. This presumably is because these are the players who are buying at the highest prices and they have run out of funds.

This problem is not trivial as it is making the Stock Market system very frustrating to use.

I have made a post about this issue earlier but it has been ignored. It makes no sense to trade on SM atm...

Experienced this a few time as a new player.
Was frustrating and made me think I was getting scammed or something.
After asking about this issue in chat. I was informed it was because of no storage or money..
Minor issue really, but now I wont trust the stock market.

A fix for the SM, at least ignoring "buy" orders when the player have no money, would be welcome.

Some colonies are now on my blacklist for repeated delivery fails, despite their "high" unit price offer.

Just to point out that due to time zones I am on when most of the USA is sleeping. I add money to my SM at that time and can run out while I am sleeping. Blacklisting is your choice but I play everyday and am add funds as fast as possible. I can go from 4B to nill in 2 hours, depending on who is on and trading with me. If you are trading with BSFA Cube and I am out of funds, just give me sometime to fix it. I am on Korean Standard Time.

Maybe a search option to separate colony from SB in SM.

Thank you!

I'm not even entirely convinced that it's a "bug", unfortunately. Could just be that a lot of people haven't adjusted their buy orders since before the Steam release and weren't prepared for the flood of new players draining their bank accounts and/or filling their warehouses.

Not sure what the right way is to fix that, but preventing buy orders from showing up in searches when they can't be fulfilled is one possibility that would help out a lot.
