      Default weird trade ship habits

      hey again everyone

      so my trade ships are happily trading along in the secluded boron / teladi / split sectors in the bottom right of the galaxy

      and i start noticing my seller ships are going into the sector with a buyer..and then deciding to turn around and head home without selling its cargo >_>

      its really noticeable with my crystal fabs (as i have 6 seller ships with 997 crystals in their cargo bay XD and all of my SPPs need crystals =p the prices are set to max buying) and a lil bit more noticeable with my mines / foodstuff factories, it has NEVER happened with any of my various shield / laser / missile production stations

      so is this some sorta bad trading error / scripting weirdness? or are my freighter pilots jus tired of doing their job? =p

      Could it be that some other trader beat yours to it and the factory couldn't buy any more?

      I do not have TC but I can think of a couple reasons. One is that the target has already been traded with to capacity. The other could be that the homebase is low on resources / money. some scripts have checks for fabs / complexes for not buying is low on cash, or if stocks are outside certain parameters etc.

      the other possibility is it's an intelligent script and checks for other ships heading to the same target, they all saw each other, and all turned aroudn to let one of the others go. stranger things have happened. It would help to know the working of the trade script being used

      10 PRINT IDLE
      20 GOTO 10
