I am trying to produce nuclear weapons with my enterprise, but u need to hav a plutonium contract to do it. So I built a plutonium company with my enterprise, but i cant find a way to contract it to my weapons corp! It only give me the option to set up contracts with countries, but if i type in the name of my enterprise, it says "country does not exist" because it seems to only allow trading with countries. Does anyone have any suggestions?!?!?!?!

Direct trade to the enterprise. Then have the enterprise sell to its own corp.

Thnx Crafty!! sold the plutonium to my corp. However, i wish there was a way to have it automatically do it every month, instead of trading every single time.

Local and common market trading.

It's simple. First identify what country your nuclear weapons corp is in. Then click on "product offered" for your plutonium corp. Click on "review corporation contracts" for your plutonium corp. Then click on "propose a new contract to countries or their corporations."
In the next screen you can enter the name of the country where your nuclear weapons corp is located. After clicking, you'll be able to find it and offer the plutonium contract.
Incidentally, nuclear weapons are a terrible thing. (wink, wink)

Thnx, but as i said in the first comment, my weapons corp is in my enterprise, and it only lets u propose a contract to a country. However, common market trading should work, like White Darkness said, but I don't know how exactly to set up common market contracts.

It's inaccurate to say "it only lets u propose a contract to a country."
A plutonium corp in a CEO can propose a production contract to any corp that uses plutonium. I gave a step by step answer explaining how.

O ok, well anyway I discovered the common market way to do contracts like white darkness said and within a couple minutes my country had super upgraded contracts and i basically have an 80-100% contract rate. (IT WAS A SUPER GENIUS IDEA!!)

Drawback to doing all supplies via common market, is that you can push the overall produced quality beyond the quality cap for that corporation. Specifically, 296 (state), 333 (private), 370 (public less than 25% share ownership), at which point, you're effectively wasting money. It's why it's best to limit that sort of thing to 1 or 2 products.

thats true, unless the place ur getting them from produces only 100 quality products(not upgraded).

Nuclear weapons aren't terrible if you can sell them.
Incidentally, why does the world market even list a price for nuclear weapons if no one ever buys? In fact the price should just be 0SC$ or 'N/A'. Right now, it's confusing the hell out of new players.

Well, as a "professional" manufacturer and arms dealer, specializing in nuclear ammo....the price is set because with trade that occurs within a world there has to be a price to calculate anything from. If I proposed a direct sale to you from my country stock to your country stock on Little Upsilon, it would sell automatically for that price listed adjusted for quality.
Therefore, if I'm selling a 301 quality strategic bomb to you, it will cost you 301% of the price listed.
We don't set prices, they're all formula, most likely due to people exploiting things in the past.
The exception to this rule is the space station trading where the only limiter I have on price is what people will pay. Since that's a confusing display and operates in gold coins or fractional gold coins, I use a formula of (commodity price times product quality)divided by Gold Coin exchange rate, to determine what I will sell at.
