Player owned resource station restocks the materials?
« on: January 10, 2018, 12:37:38 PM »
Is this intended? as if the resource station isn't useless enough, i deposited some materials and a few hours later they all resetted to 0, no chance for other players to buy them!

Are you sure they weren't purchased by AI ships?

Im pretty sure Ai cant use resources, i never got any money from them purchasing either. Millions of ore i sold just vanished out of thin air. Originally i intended to sell it at my station so other player can buy them and i get some passive income

Hm, that's pretty poor. Have you checked to see if AI Resource Depot work like this as well? If you sell, say, 1000 Iron or something to an AI Resource Depot, is that 1000 Iron still there when you return to it, or is it also lost to the aether?

Okay, so player-owned Resource Depot are given special treatment for some reason, but that does mean that there should be disparity in the code somewhere where it deals with Resource Depot. Something in pseudo-code like "if this Resource Depot is owned by a player, don't stockpile goods".

Resource depot needs serious improvement ON TOP of the fix. Right now it is outright useless in singe-player and just nonexistent in general, i wouldnt mind the depot regularly buys or put some material in the stock for you to take, otherwise why even bother?

Excatly, the only reason you have this station are selling resource.

Nothing more than that if you buy all the resource.

So avoid building res depot.

I'm guessing they put it in because they put all the other stuff in, too, and it's now in as a preliminary Station you can build. If it was the only Station out there you couldn't build yet, you'd be "but why not?"

Hang on, are you saying that if you create a RD inside a different faction's Sector, you still don't make any money for operating it? That sounds broken. I mean, I have no experience operating one so I wouldn't know, but I'd expect at least an income from NPCs coming up to it and trading for resources.

Alot of the stations that arent obvious in trading are bugged. Smuggler's den for example GIVES NO MONEY IF YOU SELL STOLEN GOODS. They all literally disappear in thin air.

Oh, wow. I was planning on creating one of those in a dark Sector for... well... let's say additional funds to help further the progress of my Empire. Thanks for informing me.

Sure there is, buddo. It's called the Glorious and Magnificent Empire of Shrooblord the Magnanimously Marvellous, Praise Be His Kin. Its home sector is at -77: -162 in the Shroobiverse Galaxy. :P
