Proposal: Indoor Market

Times out and passes 3-0. -Bucky

Reword the “Worth of Substances” rule to:-

Each Substance has a Minimum Worth between $1 and $5 per tonne and a Maximum Worth between the Minimum Worth and $8 per tonne; these are tracked privately by the Traffic Warden. Each substance may also have a Market Value per tonne, also measured in $, and which may be different for each Moon. Market Value is tracked in the table below. If no Market Value is specified for a substance on a particular Moon, it has no Market Value there.

As a weekly action, for each Substance and each Moon, the Traffic Warden should privately choose a random number between that Substance’s Minimum Worth and Maximum Worth, inclusive, to be that Substance’s Market Value in $ for that Moon. (The Market Value of Iron is not chosen randomly and is instead always $1.) The Traffic Warden shall then update the table below to reflect the current Market Value.

Merging the wiki page into the ruleset and putting it into a table, switching to $ values for clarity, and fixing the “different for each Moon” problem.

Is there still a good reason to have Iron fixed at $1?

I’m not sure what the reason was in the first place, but I thought I’d keep it in rather than changing too much at once.

Might be a bit overkill for a trade system, but fuck it. I’m for it if Bucky is, since he’s the guy with the vision imperial

Mechanically this is exactly, exactly the same as the current trade system, I’m just cutting it to two paragraphs, putting the values in a table inside the ruleset, and changing “1 Ice is worth 9 Iron on this moon” to “1 Ice is worth $9, 1 Iron is worth $1”.
