Reduction in Titanium Cost to build and refit hulls in the Conquest Yard
New simplified formula for calculating cost for Titanium Costs in the Conquest Yard
Tier 7 hull: 120,000 Titanium
Tier 6.5 hull: 100,000 Titanium
Tier 6 hull: 80,000 Titanium
Tier 5 or lower hull: 0 Titanium
If 100% of weight capacity is used, then the Titanium cost for components is the same as the base hull’s Titanium cost.
Eg, Tier 7 hull with 100% weight used will cost 240,000 Titanium (120,000 from the hull + 120,000 from components)
If 0% of the weight capacity is used, the Titanium cost is just from the base hull
Eg, Tier 7 hull with no weight used will cost 120,000 Titanium
For builds where the added components contribute between 0%-100% of the weight capacity, it will be ratioed accordingly
Eg, Tier 7 hull with added components taking 30% of weight will be 156,000 Titanium (120,000 from hull + 36,000 from components)
Example: Ship A - Base hull cost 10k Titanium, weight capacity 10 tons.
This is not a real ship. This is an example with a round number.
Titanium cost - Hull
Titanium cost - Components
Total Titanium cost
Ship A + all slots used (weighs in at 80% capacity)
80% x 10k = 8k
Ship A + no components
Ship A + 50% of slots used (weighs in at 30% of capacity)
30% x 10k = 3k
Ship A; take off 2 components (weighed 10% of capacity), add 5 components (weighed 30% of capacity).
30% x 10k = 3k
Ship A; take off all components
Ship A; started as empty hull, added items to all slots (weighed 90% of capacity)
90% x 10k = 9k
Note that the time and basic resource cost is still calculated as it currently is.
