Has anyone else noticed you can now only sell stuff in your CMs at +/- 5% now. (Was +/- 50% a turn or two ago). Whats THAT all about?
Pretty much makes CMs redundant in my opinion. Whats the point if you can get 20 times that amount or more on the open market.
If anyone important is reading this, plse change back asap.
Thanks in advance.

Yes I`ve noticed, and have you seen that the size of some corps have now doubled?
Luxury Goods now produce 1500 a month, many of my corps(I have 4 CEO accounts & 5 countries) are going to go tits up soon

The common markets never sold at +50 to -50. you could put in the field and make the offer, but when it was signed, it defaulted to market.

I tested it some months ago, and confirmed what I said, maybe there was a breif period when it was possible. But it didn't cease when you think it did.

Amiable Hymyland what i think happens is something like this:
You could sign contracts at +/- 50% but IF the difference become more the contract was reset.
the max contracts I have are at 149%, and not more.
It was a very cool feature and I hope this ability is reinstated soon.
I can work out a 50% price difference in my head. 1/20 takes a little more time.
Game Suggestion : how about a % ready reckoner on price setting pages!

I offered the contracts, and then used another country to sign them, then I checkd to see at what rate they had be signed. I did this with %50, maybe the limit was alway 49% ?!?!

Common markets have been improved. In the past, all contracts on the common market were executed at the requested price while assuming that the product quality was 100.
This resulted in lower pricing for common market (and other) contracts.
We have now fixed it. The prices you can offer are more limited in range but they are multiplied on execution by the quality you receive.
We have seen in the past that countries with a good common market saw their corporations reducing values and their profits declining. People left the common markets because of this.
With this fix, common markets become much more attractive as pricing will be at quality level instead of the usual discount/quality based pricing. Weapons factories too were losing money as many weapons were sold on contracts.
