Default Trading

Most games have some sort of trading system.
I was thinking a dev that has 3 or 4 lvls that when researched/constructed allows trade routes to be set up between companies that then give each company a small income boost based on research level+both companies sizes.
The number of routes could be linked to research+honour (good honour= more routes). Maybe reduce the boost if comapny your trading with is same allie.
Also it could be expanded allowing routes to be targetable so people can attack/defend/blockade these routes.

Basically similar to what happens in AE

I like the idea of being able to blockade a supply line, adding a bit more tactical depth to the game. But it would have to be very carefully designed, so massive guys can't just troll smaller players.

It would have to have the blockade mechanic in order to be worth implementing though. Otherwise it's just a tech to increase income that everyone in the game can develop, so everyone will have it, making it effectively pointless.

trading up the ranks gives better boost than trading down.
link the boost to honour, with both parties having good honour gives good boosts bad honour in the mix reduces the bonus. so an evil person trading down with only evil might gain 5% boost across all trade routes but a Illustrious person trading with pure Illustrious people that are all bigger might gain 100% total boost across all routes.
ps even if we all gain the same boost it forces us to interact with others in positive ways outside your allie or even go as far as getting friends to sign up so we can trade with them.


Also change it from blockade to picket making any confrontations non lethal. The dead troops are not dead just scarred off back home or retire and buy themselves out of contract giving 100% instant insurance. And the winner is whoever has the most value of troops left at the end.

One minute you're complaining about the caliber of suggestions, Dimitar, in the next you're spamming crap/completely unrelated responses to perfectly good suggestions. Try contributing something useful.

On topic: I like it but it sounds like it might be a little too complex and you need to go into more detail about how it should work.
