So I was playing through Corporate Command and decided to take part in the stock market. Shares for New Beyond Economic area were down to .02 credits per share, so I did the smart thing and bought 50,000 of them for pocket change. I backtracked to St Kat's and blew up some pirates and miners, and the stock jumped up to 25 credits per share, making me a millionaire.

If this isn't a glitch, I'd say the stock mechanic is broken.

You lucky sod. When *I* try that it rises 2cr per share, then drops back down just as I reach the station to sell my stocks. <_<

But yeah, the stockmarket is an all-or-nothing thing. Either it always costs you money, or you get really, really rich. It might need some tweaks.

So far in Corp com, I haven't played though a game without a game-breaking glitch. I haven't been able to complete the story, as far as I can tell. This concerns me a bit.

I hope George can open future expansions for beta testing for at least a little while before the complete version is released.
