Post Transfer Bots
How about trade bot options that can transfer goods without the need for money exchange. So Take Metals, Give Metals for example. This could also be used to transfer goods to ships and bases.

Let's say my Phunka has an option: Take Abstructor from X System, Jump to Sol, Dock, Give Abstructor to Singularity Sphere. So if you wanted to stockpile Personal Computers or Entertainers you could transfer them over time to your storage, saving players time and energy.

Whaddya think?

I am not sure the current system would even let us add non-commodities to a trade bot's orders if we added it, though it's likely that would work. Transferring to a docked ship though would definitely require some work to get done, so I imagine it would have to go to when trade bot orders are redone (though this would definitely be a cool feature). Being able to also set them to not use credits if the base is setup for that would also be nice, as an alternative option when setting up trade orders.

There might be some ancient code obstacles to adding non-commodities to bot orders. I do agree that there should be a transfer option available for bots, since not every transaction makes sense to cost credits.

Would be nice to have this even if trade bots are limited to commods still. Its an annoyance when setting up extraction/prod/ic bases to ensure that the prices are setup so the bots or other stations dont run out of credits.
