W3C - Buying weapons and ammunition when setting up military units

Topics: General: W3C - Buying weapons and ammunition when setting up military units

When you setup military units, you can set up one or many with a single action.

Many times, the weapons and ammunition needed for these wings are not available in the country and must be purchased before these military units can be set up.

To speed up the process, we have added a button that will automatically purchase everything you need.

This is very helpful but can leads to surprises.

Especially when setting up several units, the numbers of weapons, ammo and other materials needed can be large.

The market in Simcountry has shortages of many products, including many weapons and ammunition.
as a result, the use of this purchasing function leads to expensive immediate purchases of everything needed.

The numbers can be very large, also depending on your choice of units and their setup.

It is a danger for mainly new players but also experienced ones can end up overspending.
Some players do not realize that they end up ordering products with immediate purchases that go far over their spending limits.

We will disable this "purchase everything button" for now.
It will take place with an upgrade in the coming week or two.

It means that if you do not have everything you need, to setup a military unit, you must first purchase what you need.

you can then decide if you want to use immediate orders or not and in any case, you do not purchase while not realizing what you do.

There is another problem with this function.

It allows players awash with cash, to purchase weapons, ammunition and other military related materials without any spending limit.
It means that if you have enough cash, you can build up instantly.

Interesting concept. I'm curious to see how it plays out. Do you think it'd be possible to have an "estimated cost" feature included with that? I understand that'd take more coding and time, but that could help prevent players from overspending.

Removed my earlier question. I reloaded the page and answered it myself.

I was curious so I tried it. It auto ordered weapons @120Q and ammo @330Q. Put me 2T in debt. Now if this feature is added. I suggest putting Quality of product auto ordered. So we can decide the quality of weapons and ammo we get.

We will suspend the function as I explained above.

It is a trap for new players and in many cases, orders are immediate and the cost is much higher than otherwise.

We have removed the "order everything needed" button.

You have to order weapons and ammo first, then build the units.
The cash log shows you all the orders and what was paid for them.

The cost might end up lower than before because before, everything had to be ordered immediately and you paid the premium for immediate orders.
It can reach 50% overprice.
