    Unable to buy items that cost more than 4B

    Hey everyone, I believe that since the last patch we can no longer buy items that cost more than 4B in GMI.

    (yes I know the cred limit is 4B and know how to add more credits)

    The problem right now is when I try to buy for example a GRACE priced at 4.2B and atm I have 5B I always get the message:

    Error: Not enough credits to complete transaction.

    (you can try with an item priced at 1 cred, same result)

    So, if we are not allowed to buy items priced in excess of 4B why let us create Sell Orders for wichever prices we want and at the same time charging us fees for creation?

    Is this intended? More expensive items will have to be traded outside of GMI if this keeps up.

    Sounds good to me, the fact that things on the GMI are going for more creds than you can properly add to the GMI without dodgy workarounds is mind-blowingly stupid as is. All items should have a cap of 4 billion as well.

    This seems as sane fix to somehow cap the inflation. Anyway I have always seen ability to buy items for more than GMI cap as an error.

    I hope it's intended as this is only a good thing in long run.

    Perhaps there was an exploit with values over 4B and it needs to be capped for now.

    its a cool thing to cap it at 4b! But they could still increase the maximum amount of creds that you can have in GMI. Or atleast let you do stuff when over 4b.

    Just to let you know the official answer from a GM:

    "Greetins! If your available credits in the GMI have met or exceeded the credit cap of 4 billion, you will need to withdraw credits before you can buy or sell additional orders. I can confirm this is the behavior intended by our Game Developers."

    Not a fan of it, since it makes it more annoying to store credits, but I understand the reasons behind it.

    This should've been a thing since GMI was introduced. The old playershops had a 1 bil cap on item sales.
