So I unwisely upgraded my pods and took a contract to move medical supplies, but my balance is not enough to buy said supplies. So I went to the Loans panel and took a 2000cr loan, or thought I did, but my balance didn’t change and I still can’t buy the goods to fulfill the contract.
Perhaps I’m not understanding something about loans?
As a side topic, it seems hinky to me that a “contract” for transporting goods, requires me to buy said goods and resell them (possibly at a loss!). This mixes up trade with jobs in an unrealistic way, I think. Obviously I’ve got the EV Nova/Endless Sky/Vendetta model in mind, in which if you take a contract to move some goods, the shipper supplies the goods to be moved, and buy/sell is entirely separate.
