2 suggestions:

Additional option when buying to prevent making big losses; an option to set the max %demand price to be allowed to buy, for example I want to prevent my transports or distribution center to buy a product from the market if the demand% has reached 200%.
Than maybe something like transports will go back to a set location when they are no longer be allowed to buy, or just keep doing their route without buying anything.

Option to upload your own pictures for your buildings and vehicles, but only you can see the custom pictures, like someone attacks you with an infantry and you would see their picture, you would see the custom picture you have set for infantry, so this is all customizations which are all only for your personal view, although if this is good idea I don't know how it will work with copyrights, even if it's only for personal view...

Setting a max demand on a buy order is possible, The unit will just skip the buy order and move on. That might cause problems with your unit just doing circles. What about giving you the warning that your units are paying past the amount you set? Like somethin their unit logs. And then we make some easy way to view all the unit logs that are "warning level and above" something in the comms tab that displays all "warnings" from the unit logs so you can see important stuff like buying too high or units was damages or destroyed in an attack. Right now it doesn't track things like that very well.

Custom unit images that only you can see? Fascinating idea, I would have to look into that =) There was an idea of customizing the colors and trim of your units, so you can make all your cruisers be black with red highlights etc. everyone would see that. Might still be possible once all our images are in place.

Well that could be both good to work depending on the situation, like cancel buying at a particular point (but continue route) or only give warnings in comms, maybe some warning information if you decide to let them continue their route what might go wrong in this situation.

Also on the art style part I have some ideas that might be neat.
So 2 different options, one option to upload your own style which can only be viewed by you, and also make other players their art look like your art style, whatever maybe you put like art or pictures from Star Wars to customize your own art style ingame for all the assets.
Second option to select pictures for assets from a list made by professional art makers and maybe also amateurs, and those verified art makers can upload art for assets for players to select as their custom pictures, which 'can' be seen by other players in game.
And those art makers can sort of advertise their art in the game with their style, and there is a very small dot (very small) in the corner of the pictures you can click to see who the designer is.
That way you don't even have to pay art designers to put art style in your game, and still have maybe the most art style in your game, also Imo the art style in these kind of games are very important since everything is still screen without any movement or virtual worlds but most of all spreadsheets.
Either way you need to make sure those art designers are personally responsible for their art work they upload in case of they are breaking copyright laws in that case, because the next thing you know is someone is going to troll and uploads copyrighted pictures or art and gets you sued lol

Your last suggestion is what I was thinking. Something along the lines of Spaces Empires series games, where you select the ship "style", and there's a different model for each ship in that same theme/style. Someone else may choose a different style and all their ships looks similar but very different from yours

yes that's also very cool, and actually even better to have fixed themes for that indeed, altough it cost more effort for an art designer because it has to do the whole line for the collection.

The idea was to take the original pictures and break them up into 3 sections, the ship, the secondary colored part and the trim colored parts like the cockpit. Then just have the browser adjust the hue on the 3 sections to your liking, everyone would see that color combination. Each ship image is actually 3 layered on top of each other. It hasn't quite come out that way with the images though. They don't all have 3 distinct colors on them. Our Russian artist went off spec =)
