Trade and effect.
« on: July 03, 2010, 03:37:29 AM »
Perhaps if a mining base get thousands of units of mining equipment and slaves  they produce more exports faster.  In other words, more imports taken to a base produces more exports as the imported items are consumed at a given base.  Some commodities could be the raw materials and others could affect the speed of consumption and production.  The effects on the other base types are obvious.

Perhaps the balance of power between the factions could be affected too.  For instance, if a pilot topped off pirate bases with 5k units of staple imports (Adv. Fuels, misc. food, misc. equipment) the pirates become more numerous and effective (better weapons, stronger shields, etc.)
