I am having problem again with quality supplies.My question is,how do I maintain automatic supply quality for example:Say I want to keep all of the supplies at 100 quality on automatic on my ceo corporations but I want to increase cheap product in the corporation such as,Aircraft Fuel supplies are:
Chemicals :100
Electric Power :100
Factory Maintenance Units:100
High Tech Services :200
Oil :100
Household Products :100
Services :100
Now can you see the numbers?That is problem I am trying to do.Could you please explain to me how to it in automatic like that.I have read some things but still confused.I don't know if I'm suppose to do contract or copy and paste or something like that.Thank you.

My view is that the only way to keep quality low (and prices low) is to produce the goods yourself. Other players are pursuing a policy of high quality, to maximize sale price. It's not in their interest to sell goods at low quality to you, unless they're producing low quality goods for their own industries and have a little left over.

Of course you can specify purchases of low quality, but as far as I know-not automatically.

I'd suggest contracting, where you give up on keeping quality low but minimize your personal labor. For contracting be sure to use the Commnon market/ Accep (or offer) screens--once again to keep labor low. Concentrate on reaching the next level. As levels increase, your corps become more profitable.

Good luck and have fun!

You could always just click on "supply quality" and set your value. It'll do it's best to get as close to the target value as possible. However it will take awhile for things to adjust since the supply quality of existing stock is averaged with that of the new stock.

Anthony, you cannot do what you want with the automatic systems. They will buy at "any quality" or some number you specify.

However, you can come close to what you want to do using contracts between your corps. Have most supplies bought at 100, and then contract the supplies that you want at a higher quality.

That is the only way that I know to make it work close to what you want.
