I just realized there seems to be a serious bug in the Supply buying per Low-Water-Mark etc...
Two of my Corps of Uni Trade have nearly gone bankcrupt due to this.
Namely Drone Def 5 and Drone Def 10.
I have set the Low-Water-Mark to 20 Months with a orderering of 40 Months.
As I checked loans page of these two corps I saw those two have taken up 90B of Loans which takes them close to the 100B Loans when they will be closed as they are Public Corps and I cant do much about the finances.
The Problem is that instead of buying 40 Months worth of supply they bought 2 times 40 Months worth of supply in a short time and as those have been expensive supplies it nearly took them out because they had to take up loans. I got another Corp closed a few ingame months ago and it may be that was one that bought more then it could stand. I checked other Corps and other supplies and those are often at 90-100 Months of supply, which indicates that this happens quite frequent.
Please fix this ASAP.

We have looked into it.
The corporation placed an order for 40 months and the order is not delivered.

After some time, if not delivered, it places another order. (after 9 game months).

In this case, with very high cost product on order, this can be a lot of money.

We found that C3s quickly solve their non delivery problem by ordering immediate and they cause your corporation to wait longer for the product.

we will fix it by having C3s wait like everyone else. and will wait much longer before a second order is placed.

In the mean time, for this specific problem, reducing the order size to 20 or 30 months will eliminate the cash issue.

The change is very small but requires two different steps and will take two weeks to be resolved.

I don,t see how an 11 month order of 3,300 turns into 72K. Especially when I'm 190K OVER the low-water mark to begin with. There should simply be no order. Please take this seriously.
