Default Re: AI Economy

I don't know whether to put this in "feature request" or mention it here but it would be very cool to have a black market economy. I'm not sure what would be in such a market (slaves? dark matter? puppies? secret intelligence about a race's weakness?) but it would be the kind of cargo you find that would get you in a whole lot of trouble if you then landed on a Banker Station so you would have to figure out where you could sell it for big bucks.

That's a neat idea. Fits in with the "smugglers" approach to the game. But what do you do if you run across such and have nowhere to stash the cargo until you can find a "safe" place to sell it, when you don't have the "hidden cargo" device?

How about the ability to create a "cache" in a cave, which would supposedly be more secure than merely leaving the item on a planet surface? Perhaps with the chance of losing the cache to a "planetary event"?

All sources are dubious until their reliabilty has been repeatedly proven. Even then their information should be independently verified.
