This has happened countless times and is costing me 10s of Trillions of dollars.

I was under the impression that this was tied to game level and triggering of economic protections for beginners. However now I can confidently say this is not the case.

My settings for corps have been reset in my enterprise and country corps many times. Sale strategies, and ordering strategies for supplies for my coorps and countries.

This is affecting profitability as my sale prices are effectively being reduced to the default setting and my supply orders are being set to immediate and any quality for products both my corps and country needs. So when I log in, many or all of my countries are negative in cash to the tune of 2T more often than not over the past weeks every other day.

My FB empire has been game level 6-7 minimum. So I am certain the game level theory is inaccurate. Can you guys look into what is causing the setting reset. It is becoming a very costly bug. If you look at my cash log you will see that I have sank nearly 100T into both my LU and FB empires trying to stay above the line and being able to log into my countries. Thanks.

Thanks Jonni. I appreciate it.

Oddly enough Jonni, since the last round of cash injections into both my LU and Fb empires I have not had a recurrence of the issue. I am not sure if you fixed it, or if there is something I have changed in my own behavior that is stopping it from triggering.

I can say I reduced my order strategies a bit. I used to use 60 low water mark and 20 month order quantity for corps and country. I also used a higher than normal setting in my FB main very similar. I reduced them to 14 low water mark and 24 month order quantity for corps. That is the only other problem I can try and point you guys toward.

I used the other more aggressive order strategies for many real months with no problem which is why I didn't think to mention it. It is the only thing I have changed since I made this post to you guys in an effort to stop the bleeding.

Thanks for the details. We haven't implemented any fix yet.

I have also noticed a change, I'm not sure of the cause, it could relate to what Honey is describing or something else, but I have never seen overall drops in income across all of my entities on FB, KB and WG. I have been transferring funds a lot also. Just seems suspicious....

It just hit Charlotte on FB a few times today. Had to fix my corp supply settings and buy/sell strats back both times.

Same on KB a few weeks ago, I think it's resolved for now.

This has also happened to me before, especially with trade strategies.

Same here after a few days of no login I'm negative cash in several countries no rhyme or reason.

Jonni, I am not sure if you guys are still looking into this but it is still having a severe effect on my financial position. I am losing many more trillions of dollars after only a few days. At some point there is a real possibility for this bug to bankrupt me. I keep leveling off and the same situation occurs. Is there any solution?

I can agree this issue is a huge problem anything from my buy and sell strategies to my edu priorities have been randomly resetted every now and then. I have also confirmed edu priorities will be resetted on a regular(monthly basics) when you set them at extream values even when your turn off all automation. These issues of automation bugs and some features made by the gm's should be changed to allow players to decide against all automation without any bugs or limits. I mean by this edu priorities wouldn't be resetted when at extream values and other issues like this along with the bugs.

Happened to me as country I had on auto pilot had odd cash fluxes....yielded a default corp setting reset without my knowledge.

Also...why does common market offer production act so oddly...I can't specify over 100% offered even though production can exceed 130%. Plus the amount offered changes to 200% (randomly) after I click confirm. effectively making me have to wipe all....fix all.....and confirm everything at the same time or else..

can I specify how much I want to offer and accept over 100% monthly if I want to please?

Damn, I though this was limited to new accounts and would go away after a while.

I think a possible cause for this is selling too much from a country's stockpile in a month. For me that causes a bunch of things to get messed up at the same time - education priorities get screwed, professionals get demoted to workers, government salaries get cut with a false message that the country is losing money and in debt, corp supply quality goes to 180 and strategies go to default.
