      Default Trading comercial agents

      I have my own station complex and am doing quite well on X3TC, but i keep hearing about commercial agents and dont know what they are. What do they do and how do you set them up?

      They are an external script from lucike. It can be found in the ES scripting and modding forum.

      CAGs are, roughly spoken, a combination of the 2 commands "buy best" and "sell best". The effect is that you don't need as much freighters as you do if you're using the original ES commands. They are smarter and can handle also intermediate products. Also they talk with each other, if more than one is assigned to a fab in your property. But they still use the same ships, with the same speed. Meaning that you don't get an unfair advantage... They are simply smarter, so in the end you earn more money, but the trading rules aren't changed, so it's not a real cheat.

      Commercial Agents are very effective at trading. If you plan to use scripts (and don't care about being *modified*) they are considered a "must have" script by many (as are most of Lucikes scripts).

      One thing to note about them: You need to train them in order for them to become usefull. That means:
      A lvl 1 CAG can only buy,
      a lvl 2 CAG can buy, and sell products
      a lvl 3 CAG can buy, sell products, and sell intermediate wares.
      However, they are trained automatically while trading for you.

      That's a thing I keep forgetting when planning my empires, suddenly realising that my CAGs are not yet trained enough to be used for everything ^^.
