User:Space Weasel/Your First Building
So you just got your first building. Let's set it up properly shall we?
First off, lets go over the various settings:
Min = No one will be able to buy anything under this amount
Max = No one will be able to sell you anything over this amount
Reserve = Your building will not consume any material below this value
In all cases all actual material amounts in a building are always shown, but the saleable amount is the lesser of the (stock-min) or (stock-reserve).
Set Welcome Message
This one should be fairly straightforward.
You can use BBcode here.
Don't forget that you can use [img]http://fleet.sylfex.com/img/goods/carbonhex.x16.png[/img] to get resource icons in your building message.
You can use different sized icons:
|Trade enabled for all|
|Trade enabled for all but foes|
|Trade enabled for only friends|
|Trade with Alliance only|
|Trade with Faction only|
|Trade with Faction/Alliance only|
Be sure to set the buy and sale price as the same, so ill-intentioned pilots can't rob you blind!
For example, say you own a Solar Collector. Since that produces antimatter, set the price for both Sell and Buy to the default sell price 820.
And that Solar Collector will consume Food Rations, so set both the Sell and Buy price to the default buy price of 490.
Here's a list of the Default Prices.
