Survival Guide - Dust Settles: CEP Exchange
This service allows you to trade in excess food,
disposables or building supplies for Common
Exchange Pieces (CEP). These are the monetary units created by the Neutral
Exchange Camp to act as a standard for exchange between all camps and even
within a camp. This exchange is useful for turning your surplus resources into
CEPs that you can use on the Trade Market,
AutoExchange, or for any production that
In order to make a trade through this exchange, you will have to have 1 messenger
for each trade that you want to make. You are not limited as to how much each
messenger can trade. The messengers you use for the CEP Exchange can also be
used on either the AutoExchange or the Trade
Market, but not both.
There are two things that limit how many trades you can make each turn, the
number of messengers you have assigned
and your Marketing research. You will
be able to make as many trades each turn as 1 + your current level of Marketing
research, as long as you have enough messengers assigned. This means you can
make 15 trades with a Marketing research of 14 and 15 messengers assigned.
All you have to do to use this exchange is type in the number of units of a given resource in the appropriate text box and click "now." The number of exchanges that you can make that turn based on your Marketing research will appear above the entry boxes. As soon as you click, the trade will occur, removing the resources you chose to trade from your storage and adding the appropriate amount of CEPs to your total. A notice of how many CEPs you received through the exchange will appear in red over the main box.
If you do not have enough of the chosen resource in storage to cover what you
entered to exchange, no transaction will be made. You will receive no notice
of an amount of CEP received and will have the same number of trades left.
