Local Markets: As a Planetary Project, Local Markets can be built on any planet by its inhabitants. They work similar to bulletin boards, which results in a few key differences to Commodity Exchanges, including: placing ads costs money and can only be done by inhabitants; anyone can respond to any ad; ads cannot be partially filled; responding will not trigger a transfer of goods, but create a contract; both parties can decide not to uphold their side of said contract.
Ratings: Companies trading on Local Markets have a rating which signals to other parties how likely they are to uphold their end of a deal. Companies are Unrated (“U” symbol) by default; a rating can be obtained by becoming at least an Asteroid-tier supporter. Once a company is rated, its rating status will be Pending (“P” symbol). Abiding by contracts will result in a higher rating, breaching contracts will lower it. Ratings go from F (worst) to A (best).
New commands: LMOS, LM, LMA, and LMP provide you with control over and insight into the new Local Markets. Read more in the Local Markets section of the commands overview.
