field-hospitals dont exchange pow for alu / rare earth

Postby Mr Snipes » Tue 29 Sep 2015 20:02

When i exhange prisoners for ressources the prisoner disappears but the ressource is not transferred over.
Tried it in solo - skirmish and multiplayer. It does show the money being extracted ( the number and color is on top of the building for a second) - however it is not in my accounts. If needed i can upload yesterday's replay showing the issue.

If the storage is full, you can't gain resource from prisoner transfer (but prisoner still lost from transfer).

Yeah pretty much what happens if you don't pay attention to storage capacity.

Had this idea as well and checked the behavior again.
The trading works fine when i play chimera though.
storage was empty when i tried it. I really would have liked getting some rare earth. My stock for alu was empty down to zero in another case when i tried to trade some guys for it.

Thats not how your stock works.. Allu and RE both stock up on the same stock, its the blue bar under your resources which is your stock, and if its all red it means you got your stock full of RE.. and you dont have any room for alluminium.

There is another problem with this. If you can gain trading for RE before you can store RE you will not gain any RE but lose prisoner.

Anyways, this is a quasi bug. It needs to be disallowed to trade prisoners if you are not going to gain anything for it. The game must stop it and give a text warning about stock being full or something.

Did some more testing, thanks for your hints. Have thought that the LEM-depot is dedicated to storing rare earth so it is not connected to the alu-storage in any way.
Before i sometimes bought some units that needed alu and found out that getting rare earth does not work. The reason is that a 9x% ish full storage blocks the interchange as well, even if the rare-earth-depot is empty.
