TC Stock Exchange "The Evolution of a Financial Revolution"

v4 Now Available.



In a little room far far away, the thought accured 'Why can't i make credits from others hard work and success', thus work began on 'TC Stock Exchange', the evolution of a financial revolution had begun.

Recently I and a very helpful group of testers have been working on a 'Stock Exchange' script.

This script allows the trading in shares of 4 Different types.

Commodities;
Wares held by stations in a Local Exchange area. The local exchange area is a group of sectors all linked and controlled by the same race. These share are related to the supply and demand of wares in the local exchange area. (Static Menu must be updated Manually)

Naturals;
Also part of 'Commodities' are wares that are not normally used in the game. These wares are what i would consider to be mostly sold in station shops and retail outlets. Their share value is based on in game numbers but not in the usual supply and demand manner. (Static Menu must be updated Manually)

Corporations;
The in game corporations have shares for sale. These share are based on the corporation actual in game value and will fluctuate in value based on what to corporation currently owns. (Dynamic Menu and will be updated Automatically)

Companies;
Companies are derived from the Forum Name lib and have extensions added to the names to create a company name as such. The values for these are derived by the script from an algorithum of my construction. They have no basis in the in game environment. (Dynamic Menu and will be updated Automatically)


Construction, Implementation and Release of Stock Exchange - Commodities Index.

Not Presently compatable with,
Transend II :
Modifications have been made to the script to make it more compatable, but no testing has been performed, try at your own risk. But let me know if it works or what still needs doing if you do. (draffutt has done some testing in this regard and has pronounced it to still be in a very Borked state, much further work required apparently.)

Ok, now for some information you need to know.

Patches and Addons Created by Members of the Forum Community:

Alternate Company Names and Corporation 0cr patch by vukica:

Company Rename

Here's a differet version of the Company Names used in Stock Exchange

- Does not use Forum Name Library
- Uses "Realistic" company names (e.g. Diamondback Corporation, Haleos Corporation, Antigone Credit Services etc...) only MarCon Ind. and Logain Ind. from the original script are included. Also there are many smaller companies owned by large corporations (like Terracorp Mining division)
- Uses text file number 7433(some one should change that in the Library) so it wont cause problems with FNL
- Includes Corporation 0cr patch.

Instalation: Sell stock, save, exit game. Copy the Company rename to your TC folder, overwrite, and roll...

Company Rename and Corporation 0cr patch

If there are suggestions for new company names, pm me (vukica).
If you find bugs report them here!



Corporation 0cr patch by vukica:

Corporation 0cr patch

There have been problems for many people regarding the terracorp min cr going below 0. I've managed to fix it a little bit

Before the installation you want to sell all your stock. Save game, exit(or alt tab) and copy the fix to the SCRIPTS folder, overwrite when asked. Go back to game, select stock exchange options, select uninstall and "i want to upgrade". Wait until you get the message(the one in the subtitle area) and then just roll the exchange like you did before.

Corporation 0cr patch

There will not be any stock bellow 0
Terracorp stock may actually rise to about 500cr(depending on the jobs file you use).
If you don't have this problem with negative stock you do NOT need to install this.(you can but it wont change anything)
If there are any bugs please post it here in the thread ASAP.

This sounds pretty nice. LV had a script that put something like this in but never finished it.

I would say I can test it but I don't know details on stock trading and such to give any good feedback. I wish all the testers the best though Smile

I can't speak for LV but his script may yet get some work done it. Since he so kindy allowed me to use it for ideas for this script (some of which are being used in this script Very Happy ). LV incorperated his into 'Imperial Labratories' and this one is being implemented in a different manner. I'm going to see if i can get some time to do some update work on LV's in return.

As for the testing, that is part of this idea to get some testers so that you don't need knowledge of stock trading to be able to use it and have some fun with it.

Thanks for the encouragement for the testers.

You didn't tell me!?
EmperorJon is sad... Sad Rolling Eyes


For those of you who don't know what I'm on about... (eg. 100% of you) it was my idea to include some attempt of a stock exchange in this trade plugin of mine and Mark's however... like usual I tried it a bit then sort of went... Shocked 'Mark, can you do this bit? I'll erm... work on erm... something easier'

Gre't lad aint 'e? Everyone give 'im a round of applause! Very Happy
