Can anyone explain to me what the limits the computer works with when purchasing is? My enterprise and my corps are sliding further and further into debt. A recent global shortage of many products has made a few things clear to me, like why some corps report losses when making money, others report profits but their reservse plummet. Apparently, 'profit' per month goes by cost of supplies used, but totally ignores supplies purchased.

If I raise the percentage I try to sell at, my stock goes unsold (even in times of great shortage!) There is currently a huge HUGE shortage of production plants on White Giant, I have a corp that makes them, but at 200% of market value, they pile up in my stock and eventually seem to just disappear without ever selling. I once placed an 'immediate order' on a product that had a huge surplus and no delay, and it took 2 months to fill. Will the computer not make transactions if they are more then a certain % of the market value?? I can't seem to raise my price and still sell my products.

On the other side of it, anytime I try to lower how much I'm paying for supplies, I develop huge supply shortages. I can't seem to lower costs or raise income, and it's pushing me deeper in debt. My enterprise is Paladin Enterprises
