Could you please improve the country search option for finding countries to build or move corps to? It shouldn't bring up countries that are CEO blocked or don't have enough people to build a corp in. I've wasted a lot of time clicking the search for another country button 20 times, going through 2 screens each time, before I find one that actually has enough population.

It looks like in search, countries are pre-selected for search based on solely unemployment number. You also notice that the same country can appear twice, even if you have already built there and unemployment is not that high.

I suspect it is pre-defined query that periodically releases batch of countries for a search.
It may very well be because of technical limitations of advanced search (SQL query performance).

But I am with you on that. Ideally (if technically feasible), more search options would be great, such as corporate taxx, C3 vs player.

Build in countries advertising 0% taxes. You can find them in the forum for each planet.

You can also message players and ask them to get enough population or eliminate a shortage of one worker type.

Pathetic Sheep,

As you know, I am relocating corps to your country every moment I see an opportunity and I am very grateful for that.

But let me ask you, why adding more search options for country search would be such a bad idea? I understand it may be not useful for you personally, but please try to think about a new player that does not have any contacts.

If it would be up to me, as building-up CEO, I would have Search and Advanced Search with options like:

- average salaries
- ownership, c3/player
- tax
- population
- number of corporations, c3/player

It is indeed time consuming to find suitable countries if one looks for example for average salaries bellow 200 or around 100.

it is essential to be able to list C3 only. Saves a lot of time!

More search options providing the ability to narrow a search would be enormously helpful. And listing only C3's is at the top of the list of needed refinements.
