Augmented Economy (e.g. PON) - Merchandise Prices

Mon Aug 26, 2019 11:38 am

Where in the .hst or other host file are the current prices of merchandises being stored?

I am working on some automated evaluation
(Yes JimNC, based on your works. Will be sending you the files when finished, of course)

Just tried in a tutorial .hst and some of them appear just below the name of the merchandise.

For example, Luxury Goods with a price of 20:

But for some reason not all, only those changing?

Code: Select all

Luxury Goods
    20
   
   
    strMerchPriceUp
   
   
   
   
   
    {/Event}
    {Event}
    -1
    0
    197
    -1
    -1
    1000003
    -1
    0
    0
    0
    0
    1
    -1
    0
    0
    strAllTransactionsBuy

Thank you, Nikel. That was a start. It seems that these are responsible for what every faction reads in their respective logs.
I believe I found it. Quite simple, the next line after

Code: Select all

GlobSupplyMod|100|100


Needs evaluation but I think it is just the UID of the merchandise, alongside the current price, seperated by pipes, go figure. While I am not sure if this is 100% solid ground, I am confident. Why they are in this peticular order I cannot fathom.

Code: Select all

2|4|3|2|4|3|5|5|20|2|22|2|23|2|24|4|25|2|26|3|27|2|28|2|29|3|30|2|33|2|34|6|35|5|36|2|37|2|38|4|40|5|41|7|42|3|43|8|44|4|45|5|49|8|50|11|51|18|21|2|47|14|48|7|39|4|19|4|


It is not the same in every host file. Also the prices here differ in some cases from those shown with the "B" key with the faction I looked at them.

OK, good to know.

Those numbers are difficult to search, very low and common.

But the NM, VPs... or in PON money, private capital..., are easy.
