First off, thanks for taking the time to find out how to do this before rushing off to war :lol:

To trade, you can check out any of the "storefront" threads you see in the forum...they go back for pages, so you can browse any of a number of them. Stores sometimes have different rules, but generally what you do is you post

"I want X number of Z Tanks, and Y number of W Fighter planes, etc.".

The person running the store will gnerally respond fairly quickly (within a day or so), and you "have" your weapons. I keep track of what I buy, and I'd recommend you do the same, so you have an idea of how muhc equipment you have.

IMPORTANT: To have an idea of how much you can buy, use this site:

If you want to change the percentage of spending on defense, change the first number, where it says "defense=7". This will give you an idea of how much you can reasonably expect to be able to spend.

Hope this helps 8)

It is good to see someone who is willing to think things through. I do hope that you will see the value of consistently letting me have my way.

You cant ACTUALLY trade its just role playing. Like you say i want 5 tanks here is my 5,000 dolllars. The tanks dont actually go to your nation, and the money doesnt REALLY get transferd.
