[TC] 2 billion credits limit. Yyyeah right.

Post by deca.death » Mon, 5. Sep 11, 23:00

.

For a couple of days I keep notice how my credits keep strangely circling around 2 billions. OK i thought, yes, I have great income machinery but hey, there are all those CAG guys, salaries, expenses ... Never occurred to me that ...Anyway I was doing some lucrative building missions for 30 million each and nothing changed. When I sold orca full of nvidium I was starting to get suspicious. Then I transfered 50 millions to some factory and account filled in minutes to 2 bills. Then it hit me like the brick in a head. I must have lost hundreds of millions.


How do you deal with that? Just transfer billion to my PHQ /HUB whatever??

Bonus pack, the CAG script for stations has an option to transfer money to an unseen account, which doesn't hold this 2bn limit. Which, by the way, also goes for normal station accounts.

edit: tho I doubt that money gets counted with the export stats script.

Build an Ore Mine M on any uninteresting asteroid anywhere in the universe... call it "bank of billions" and put your money in the stations account.

It doesn't show up in "player's money", but is listed in "money of stations".

The 2 billion limit has ever been in the X series due to a limitation in the programming. That's also why even Earth has only 2 Billion inhabitants in the sector overview...

Never Mind Deca, you might not have as many complexes as I but I am sure you have enough to salt away all that cash.
In fact I have never had my factories pay me auto., I find withdrawing it physically from them far more satisfying and it gives me a chance to check they are running okay. I do not run over many Traders so I do not get flooded with cash from them.
I must check up on that unlimited CAG account everyone mentions, just in case all my accounts get up to the 2 Billion mark. Still with the everlasting campaign against the Xenon to finance, there is not much chance of that!

First, if you're at the cash limit, make sure that any money-making complexes you have are not set to auto transfer credits to the player account. Obviously, you don't need the cash infusions anymore. Let them build up separate bankrolls.

Secondly, transfer credits into stations. They're the only place you can squirrel away money so you might as well use them.

I remember building about 100 trading stations in one of the sectors to hold the cash. Now I just don't build too many stations. One NV mining operation and one complex to produce rare weapons is enough :)

Use the CAG account. Not only does it have no limit, but it wont go up in smoke if your station does. You can even set one of your stations as a banker with a really low credit transfer threshold. Basically any credits to put in it get put straight into you CAG account.

Then use your cash to build new places where you can store future cash :roll:

I must admit that I only have a lowly 1 billion credits at the moment, but for future reference how do I access this CAG account?

The Readme of X3TC Bonuspack, Commercial Agent (CAG) section, has chapter about "Global Administration" and "Station options".
