Price History Graphs
The Marketplace now has a set of graphing and graphing technologies: Trends, Trend Analysis, Speculation, Technical Analysis, Market Ledger. As standard you can see the average price graph for a commodity; however you can extend your insight using these technologies to volumes, buy/sell averages, candlestick open/closing/mix/max and supply/demand graphs - as well as the ability to download the historical data for your own external nefarious use.

       


The graphs are by region, and selecting a trade hub will change the region from your town to the region of that trade hub - if it is in a different location to your town. e.g. having a trader in a hub in a different region to your town will give you this extended view.

The mini-graph under the main graph can be used to zoom into the main graph, by clicking and dragging a section - clicking without dragging will zoom back out. At this time it won't provide a huge amount of extra fidelity, but overtime as more marketplace history builds up this should become a more useful feature.

Marketplace Usability Improvements
  • Location choice now alters what is shown in the Market Prices.
  • When switching between location choice the marketplace now continues to show the data for the relevant subpage (e.g. Wood, Graph)
  • When creating an order it will default to the current location and item type (if available)
  • The numeric columns are now sorted numerically when you resort them, rather than alphabetically.
  • Trade hubs buy and sell offers pages now correctly tell you where you need to setup buy and sell offers rather than saying you have no traders or inventory.
  • Caravans from other towns can now correctly be ordered by traders.
  • Hub purchases from towns now show what is being delivered and picked up on the trade movements screen.
Bug fixes
  • Cancelling trades should no longer cause caravans to go missing.
  • Town to town trades now use the two correct speeds for caravans from the originating towns rather than just the speed from one.

Awesome! Now what we need is people with traders in every market and the download technology, and we can set up a tool with the current average prices for every good in each region of Illy.  Eaque?  Honored Mule?  Care to give it a try?  Could work similar to the way IllyTools uploads battle reports, perhaps?

/me tries to imagine additional external nefarious uses

The availability of information tied to in-game research, very nice Clap

Now, if we could research something to tie the map to all those scouting reports so when we click on the map we can get to the scouting report...

Maybe in the far future (soon) we can research and hire inventory managers, animal control manager, harvesting manager, etc... and these nobles will help run our cities?

Awesome progress Smile

Maybe we can stop building all this stuff and give them a place at the guild office. I'm sure someone will move over. :P
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so you will not be dependent on anybody.

I only have a complaint: grapes

Trading will need ages to start working, especially not Centrum hubs.

Not smart. You are killing your own creature...

I'm a little surprised that I am the only Trader at Glinntre so far.  I'm there and open for business!  Come on down!
