I was thinking it might be easier for us to manage trades with ramul if the interface could be changed in a way that allows us to define exactly how much of each material we want to offer him, and ask "how many <material> are you willing to give me for that".
mostly I want to be able to change giving up ALL of material x and some of material y, for the ability to offer some of x and some of y.
I know as I progress in tech levels I'll be using ramul less and less, but still ...
Interestingly, I would like to make another setting to Ramul: Pickey and Choosey. Choosey would be the same as now, but Picky he would ask for things in units of one, cycling through the whole object order list (in Greedy or Selfish order) asking for one of each thing rather than all he could get.
So he'd ask for maybe 2 Coal, 2 PigIron, 1 EUR, rather than 10 Coal, 4 Pig Iron, 1 EUR. Major savings.
I just think it's more fun when you interact with Ramul a bit, rather than just filling out some values for how much you're offering.

I like that idea.
What about this, too: Trustworthy Ramul, or Untrustworthy Ramul
Trustworthy: Ramul charges you less because you don't supervise the trade. You spend fewer objects, but you get no say in which ones he takes, and those objects are determined randomly (but never the one you ask for). Good for those who feel like gambling or with nothing much to lose.
Untrustworthy: Why would you trust that thief? No, you're going to watch him very closely. The other options are open, and you get to see what he wants before you agree to it. The full current rate for objects would be charged, though. This could be where you decide which Ramulgorithms to use, and is better for someone trying to protect certain resources.
