Country: Lenor Ash

My state corp kept having supply shortages, every corp is low every month then red short.

Buying strat is 108% + 10%, I also try to raise low water mark to 6 month, still the same, it shouldn`t be.

I checked some corp Buying S at 92%+5% don`t have the problem, and they had the same resources that my corp can`t get for many months.

Can GM or someone please help look into.

Hi Corleone:
Try this:

1) Go to your main country page.
2) Then click on Automation, a blue button over your country map.
3) Click on it, and you will see 3 tabs: Country automation, New corporations and Existing corporations, click on in Existing corporations.
4) You will see a chart named Automation of State Owned Corporations, with a list of all State corporations in your country and a list of items like Product purchasing, Product sales, Salaries, Production level, Hiring level, Effectivity upgrades, Quality upgrades and Retain product.
5) Fill all the blank little squares with a blue check symbol, but assure you fill ALL the squares. At the end of the page thereâs a blue button named Save Corporation Automation click on it and return to your country page.

It doesn't work declare war to the gm...:)

Good luck and cheers!

You don't seem to be part of a common market. Common markets can provide your corporations with somewhat steady supply contracts that you can accept (through "Trade" or "Common Market").

All of them were checked by default, shouldn`t be the problem.

I changed my low water mark to 9 months and buy 18 months supply, the shortages seems to be better now.

I don`t know whether it works or the system just happens to correct itself.

There is another thread citing shortages of HTS, it could just be the system fault.

blah Blah

No it's much and much deeper then that. In short, people are hoarding goods in massive quantity's.

This has caused most markets to go deep into the red zone but it will correct itself in time.
