SOLVED Cash balance bug, after trading with Archibald and Isabel0 Likes/4 Replies/999 ViewsOriginal poster MikeHawk88 1 posts
I had been plagued with a mysterious bug for the last 2 months - cash would mysteriously disappear for no reason at all. I'd be holding cash of $1.5M then suddenly 10 minutes later, have only $30K. I had NO automatic buys set up so it was tremendously frustrating to identify it.
Today I think I found it - I had a cash balance of $850K, then bought a frigate and $130K of stuff from Archibald. I kept the buy screen open, and within 3 minutes, my cash balance dipped down to $30K.
I restarted the save and tried it with Isabel - noticed the same thing too.
I restarted the save again and played for 2 hours without trading with them - and cash balance steadily increased as expected. If you guys wish, I can send you my save file and you can re-attempt it.

@mikehawk88 I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions for you, but I've had this happen to me as well - a sudden and very significant drop in cash balance, from healthy to precarious. The problem does highlight my biggest bugbear with the game, which I logged in to post about. When cash suddenly disappears (or starts rapidly decreasing), there's no way to identify where it's going/has gone.

Hey there @MikeHawk88 and @blitzgerat!
Having your cash disappear suddenly and for no reason at all is never a pleasant or fun experience.
Thank you for making sure this got reported to me and also for letting me know the cause of it to better help me help others.
Feel free to let me know if there's anything else I can help with!
