Im really having trouble understanding how this works,(if it does)

Visibility skill

Skill at promoting your product effectively. Each level increases a remote sell order’s radius of effect from origin. Level 1 allows for
range within same solar system, Level 2 extends that range to systems within 5 jumps, and each subsequent level then doubles it. Level 5 allows for a
full regional range.


Now, what i thought this skill was going to do was make my sell orders visible to others outside the current station, but i set up a remote sell order 5 jumps away, then I asked a org member to check that station and see iff he could see my order, he could,.

The thing is I havnt trained the visibility skill yet?

Now what am I missing? or is the skill bugged.

If you place a sell order with 0 visibility skill, people will only be able to see that you are selling it, if they are sat in the station.

If you have Visibility 1, people in the system (in space or another station) will be able to see you are selling the item.

More levels of visibility allow people from further away to see that you are selling things, upto level 5 which coveres the entire region (although a lot of people say stopping at 4 and placing things for sale in the middle will cover everywhere too)

No visibility == No goods showing up outside the station

Thats how I thought it worked too, but having tested it, I can see my orders anywhere in the region! Having re-read the skill description I think maybe it only applies to remotely placed orders (i.e. when you aren't at the station your selling the item from)? Either that, or it is bugged.

I think this puts it so that you have 2 weeks. After that the NEW skills wil go into affect.
But don't hold me on that

I'm confused too now. I can see my orders outside the system they were placed in despite not having the Visibility skill. I wondered why the stuff was selling so well when I thought they were restricted to people in the station seeing them. All of the orders were placed since the Exodus patch too.

The 2 week period mentioned above could explain why the Visibility skill is not working yet. Sounds like these new skills will only come into effect after the pre-Exodus orders expire. So everyone gets a free ride for the first 2 weeks Wink

Has anyone heard anything about why this skill doesn't seem to be working?

Seems a shame....

As far as I can tell, the only Trade skills that ARE working are Trade/Wholesale/Retail: the ones that limit the number of open orders and Broker Relations: the one that slightly reduces your broker fees for listing (yes, listing, not selling.../me plugs rant) items.

Must be the two-week thing.

I was just about to post this same question. I too have placed remote sell orders which are visible throughout the region without having the Visibility skill. These orders were placed post Exodus.

It would be nice to have some clarification on whats happening.
