Sorry, I don't understand your comment Bingeling.
I think he means the "state" versus "private" funds. You can use state funds to build stuff (ships, bases, etc) and maintain your military ships, whereas private funds are used to maintain bases as well as building (automated, you can't control this) civilian ships (freighters, etc).
I'm not sure if the game disallows building new bases if your private funds are in the red. All I'm sure of is that you can't build anything with your state funds if you can't pay for it (ie: don't have the cash available). What I believe Binge is suggesting, is that BOTH state and private must be in the black to build. He might be right, but I don't recall running across this situation (private always seems to be positive no matter what I do). It is an interesting question he raises, though.
I suspect what is happening to Farflamex is that he has 400k in "private funds", but an insufficient amount in his "state funds" to build what he wants. Either that, or he's hit the queued actions limit - which I'm not sure what that is...
