Would be nice if commas in vend and register prices were added. It's a bit hard and risky to sell/buy when you're dealing in high numbers, especially millions (for rams etc) and things like that.

    Vends can’t be set over 100,000c. So, you can’t sell rams.

    +1 Though

    i can already see the confusion all over the place.
    "But the price was set to 100 cubits?" - reads 100,000c as 100c

    Not sure adding a , or . will make it more clear or would make people think it is a smaller number then what it really is.

    Maybe add a k or c at the end of the price, like 100c or 1,000k. In your example, 100,000 k.

    100,000k is 100 million?

    Sadly, a comma isn't a standard way to write numbers in all countries to delineate thousands, millions, billions, etc. Some countries use periods instead of the comma.

    European et. al.: 10.000,00 = British/American et al.: 10,000.00

    And apparently other countries don't delineate large numbers the same way (there are some South Asian/Indian systems that write their large numbers differently than the western systems:
    • 1 lakh is written as 1,00,000 and is equivalent to the Western 100,000. Note that there are only two zeros between the first and second commas.
    • 10 lakh is written as 10,00,000 and is equivalent to the Western 1,000,000 (one million).
    So, probably writing the numbers without commas (or periods) is easiest since this is an international game.

    Maybe you can select what style of pricing you want to use in the settings/tweak or somewhere ?

    It would never go over one comma. You can’t put more then 100,000c in the vend.
