Market auto complete buy/sell orders

Postby MINIMAN10000 » Sun Jun 18, 2017 11:24 am

When a buy order is placed check sellers for a price lower or matching the buy order. For each unit match the buy order with the sell order price until the buy order is complete or the highest sell order is higher than the buy order

When a sell order is placed check buyers for a price higher or matching the sell order. For each unit match the sell order with the buy order price until the sell order is complete or the highest buy order is lower than the sell order.

This allows buy and sell orders to be placed at a requested price without the player worrying about lost money on a sale as well as allows orders to instantly transact if there is enough market overlap

If you want an example of this in action you can look at the game called [removed by mod] which has implemented this system. It increases the number of people who place buy and sell orders leading to a dynamic marketplace in which buy orders and sell orders can shift the transaction price.

By having the system automated natural player prices can come into being where players who try to compete in selling prices start hitting buy orders and people who are competing in buy prices start hitting sell orders.

Currently the system's deficiency causes addition struggles for market buy and sell orders as buy and sell orders have to be manually checked any time you want to change your prices. Buy and sell orders are disconnected and it discourages competition in pricing.

It's an annoyance that really shouldn't be there in a global market. Global markets are normally automated which this system is lacking.

I'd prefer to keep as few restrictions to the market as possible so it remains free. Experienced games with limiting prices and purchasing and it completely ruins a market. There is nothing wrong with it currently, the players just have to learn to check both the buy and sell of an item if they want to get their max value when buying/selling. That responsibility is with the player not the system.
