Hi, commerce
« on: May 14, 2019, 10:12:11 AM »

Hi all, Played a lot of version 8, came back to check things out.
just a quick thought i had for commerce building:

Could it be used to check all compatible friendly markets through existing comm relays
and make it possible to browse and buy/sell ships/weapons/etc "online"?
(maybe access an online underground black market too if pirate playthrough)

Each faction/colony you buy from does the following:
Adds delivery costs relative to distance,your reputation and value of merchandise.
Gives choice for "secure" or "safe" delivery for a hefty cost (no secure delivery? pirates probably intercept expensive merchandise/ships)

For example ordering an expensive pristine battleship from tri-tachyon Hybrasil
may require an expensive escort costing even double the price for delivery.
Maybe through a building upgrade this could be made to be used for mid-to-late game
or completly late game for market browsing and chilling.

Also is there any chance for more filter options at the weapon refit UI being implemented, like PD,beam and faction?
It is painfull to browse through 895 weapons for beam only when many mods are installed.

Thats it for now thank you for reading, im not very forum posting savvy i hope it reads well.
