Ok, get this:

Yesterday, all of my countries were doing well and making profit after coming out of debt. I had just bought 2 mil population for each country so that I would have workers for new corps. I logged off yesterday with all my countries doing very well. Well, guess what? I just logged on today, and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY COUNTRIES WAS IN DEBT!!! I barely spent any of my money! I built a couple corps here and there, but thats about it. Besides building a few high tech corps, I never touched that money. Yesterday, it was there. Today, it was gone. That is total and complete BS! 1T in each country, just gone like that! Some of the countries that lost the money didn't even have a military! And now today, I don't have any more high techies, and I can't build anything!

Can somebody please tell me, and I am trying to remain calm but failing...where are my workers, and more importantly, WHERE THE HELL IS MY MONEY??????????????????????????

Do you have auto orders for products your country uses? Check the recent orders? If you have military, it could also be ammo. But, your country will also order milk and bread and other things it uses. If you have shortages, it may place an auto order for immediate buy and you will pay more instead of getting best price.

Yes I have auto orders turned in some of the countries, most of my countries are completely on manual control for me because I don't trust the automatic systems anymore.

the game reorders supplies if it isnt filled in month for both countries and corporations if you dont check your pending deliveries you may be ordering 20 to 30 times what you really need because of this game glitch youll notice below that this particular country is ordering mid range missles since april because it cant be filled due to market situation i have to manualy cancle out orders every month ( in this case may , june, and july)or i would wind up with many more than needed costing me tons its especialy a problem with corporation or country supplies as some of those auto orders total a lot of money for example a large country may auto order 100 million construction units without the owner knowing it over a period of ten months ( two days of not logging in)bankrupting it and thats just one of countries needs it often does it for several needed suplies at same time for both countries and corps everyones tying up tons more money in supply inventory than neccesary untill they address this. its glitch in the game script that could be easily corected by limiting countries and companies to filling an order for a particular item before it allows reordering said product again. example of java conditions need to be met before next execution code and half ass explanation below

The if statement encloses some code which is executed only if a condition is true. The general syntax of the if statement is:
if (condition) {
The if statement has two parts. The condition is a boolean expression which resolves to either true or false. The body-code is code that will be executed only if the condition is true. Here is an example of the if statement.
// Returns 0 if s is null
public int getLength(String s) {
if (s == null) {
// This line of code is execute only if s is null
return 0;
return s.length();

it was created by changing supply rules.if you go on vacation or lose net for few days you could very well get back on and find a financial meltdown in your empire. i have caught many companies auto ordering 40 months of supplies due to this. instead of the normal ten

example of a java condition execution code above, yes i am a programer/web developer :p keep in mind thats not full explanation of how it works but quick lil description and it does not apply to this situation its generic coding but thats basicly how it should work.

have a great day

we recommend that you inspect your purchase orders daily

from pending deliveries page.

yeah thats all you can do unless its fixed, try and log in once day and hope you catch multiple orders the most it can purchase in one day is 4 times what you really need for all country supplies.if you use a as time passes you pay 8% more each month on orders not filled thats 32 % more a day or over week about 300 % more than what normal supply price would be,as the unfilled orders pile up and are on the market months longer. so i guess time based supply purchasings are no longer a viable option itl cost too much now, its drove me into being mostly an isolationalists i try to supply my own supplies now and no longer enter into foriegn trade agreements as anything sold on world market pays you way more than any common market sales do now if product is in short supply. a strategy somewhat posible for larger empires with a lot of cash flow but not for smaller ones

you also have to check each companies supply orders daily but if you have 300 companies that can take quite a while each day so basicly your just gonna have to have a built up warchest of money. If your on a tight budget or a free player well

You can see if any corps are getting low on supplies, all corps in one glance. You can cancel orders, re-order if you need. You can increae your initial buying price a little. You can set your order strategies page to always keep several months ahead of usage. Granted it takes time and effort but how challenging would the game be if everything was given you on a plate?

Stick with it Ramasas, you'll get there.

Ok I am Lenin. I just started over because my economy went to hell. Decided to go with a German theme this time, as the Kingdom of Prussia. :)
