Automation Settings for Corporations being overidden

Topics: Help: Automation Settings for Corporations being overidden

A few times now I unselect automation for product purchasing and product sales from the section titled "Automation of State Owned Corporations" in Automation and every time it is overridden and reverts back to being selected using the default values and not the ones I've customized for each corporation. The same thing is happening for country based trade strategies. They are also reverting back to the defaults.

I have already unselected the "Beginners and general economic protection" option suspecting it might be the cause but this did not solve the issue. Any advice?

Wait 14 days if you are new to game, if not contact the admins.

This is really disappointing! I had 4 corporations closed after losses due to the game not following my trade strategies!! All 4 products were selling like hot cakes on the market and their corporations would never lose, but SimCountry in all its wisdom overrides my selling rules with automation selling rates that bankrupted 4 of my companies 3 of which I had super boosted! This is so outrageous I am really thinking of quitting the game. Not worth the effort!

The automation settings will not have caused your corps to do that badly that they will have closed.

Look for your problem somewhere else. Like if you super boosted them did you have the required hi-tech workers to keep 100% hiring?

I have no problem in hi-tech workers. There are tons of unemployed. The 4 corps kept selling month after month at 10% below market while they all started with not such a high corp value. It was only a matter of time as they were not making any profit. The question still remains, why do those 2 automation categories get overridden?

mggebriel, keep an eye on the loans each company has, that will force them to close if they are not making enough to cover costs plus the loans.

If you have been playing for 2 weeks or less, the game automatically sets your trade strategies to help your country until you learn how to set strategies yourself.
To me it is a nuiscance because some new players are capable of having proper strats set up, especially after learning from Crafty and others.

All corps have 0 loan and 0 debt. Even the corps which closed. As for automation, yes I have actually been playing for about a week only, but with what you are saying I have no option whatsoever to turn off automation in the 1st 2 weeks! That is not merely a nuisance! That cost me several Super boosters! So you can imagine how I might be looking to this entire issue!
