Proposal: Controlled Substance

Times out 3 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Rename “Worth of Substances” to “Substances”, and replace “Each Substance has a Minimum Worth” with:-

Anything which can be stored in a Bay or is found in a Container is a Substance. If a Substance is listed in the table below, it is Saleable; otherwise it is Unsaleable. Each Saleable Substance has a Minimum Worth

Replace “If no Market Value is specified for a substance on a particular Moon, it has no Market Value there.” with:-

Unsaleable Substances have no Market Value on any Moon.

Replace “As a weekly action, for each Substance” with:-

As a weekly action, for each Saleable Substance

Per the CfJ below, setting things up so that saying “oh look, a Container with 1 tonne of Unobtainium” causes Unobtainium to explicitly become a Substance, albeit one which cannot (in the absence of a market listing) be bought or sold.

Waitasec, this would make Fuel a substance.  imperial  while I consider the implications.

If anyone tries it, I will argue that ‘An amount of Substance’s total worth is calculated as its Market Value in that Orbit times the quantity of Substance’, which this proposal does not modify, means that Unsalable Substances’ Market values cannot even be calculated and they cannot be Traded, rather than all Unsalable Substances having the same total worth.

That’s how I interpret it. If something doesn’t have a Market Value then it can’t be traded.
