trade - Buy ships, planes, land units or nukes





The trade report lists all ships, planes, land units and nukes that are being sold and allows you to buy them.

It is based on a bidding system, and after the bidding time has passed, the transactions are executed, and the highest bidder gets the goods (maybe.) If there are no bidders once the time passes, the goods stay on the market and the first bidder will get them.

Your bid must be higher than the currently high bid.

Typical output looks like:
