Blue Lightning Posted June 4, 2010 Report Share Posted June 4, 2010 (edited) The premise of this trade circle is to set up a circle which is perfect for paying bills, buying infrastructure and fighting wars (everything except collecting). Then, when you go to collect (every 15-20 days or so), you drop the trade circle and find some income boosting resources to collect taxes with. Once you've collected, you re-send trade offers to the rest of the circle and it reforms again. One of the best things about the circle is, because we don't collect taxes together, team colour is not an issue so you can be a member of this circle while residing in any colour sphere (as the happiness bonus from same-colour trades only effects collections). This is without doubt the best way of running your trades. Much better for growth and with all the benefits (such as stability) of a standard trade circle. The trade set: Aluminium - Coal - Gold - Czar Kiev Iron - Zaphod Beeblebrox Lead - phantomfive Lumber - Marble - phantomfive Oil - Pigs - Rubber - Czar Kiev Uranium - Water - Zaphod Beeblebrox Here are some screenshots of this trade set's effects; on bills: [img]http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/5994/bills.png[/img] ...on Military costs: [img]http://img243.imageshack.us/img243/7108/warh.png[/img] ...and on Economy ([b]note: only infra/tech cost really matters here[/b]): [img]http://img576.imageshack.us/img576/8293/infra.png[/img] If you are interested in joining, please sign up by posting your interest here (include a link to your nation and the resources you can contribute) and I will add you to the above list. Please remember that this is a [b]long-term commitment[/b] and, due to the frequent swapping of trades, requires a [b]fair level of activity[/b] to accept trade offers at least once every few days or so.
