I was wondering if there were any SWC applications, or perhaps non-SWC sites, that kept data on how much ships, vehicles, items, npcs, etc get sold for on average.
I ask because I joined SWC in Year 1 but I've just recently started playing again after being away for 3-4 years and I've got loads of ships and vehicles that I don't need. However, I'm finding it difficult to see any sort of numbers as to how much things cost and go for now. I know that the rules pages just show materials cost, so I can't really go by that, and I've been scanning through the commerce and auction forums but there isn't enough stuff there to judge on.
So if anyone knows of or keeps a list of this sort of stuff, it would be greatly appreciated.
The Centerpoint Station faction has a database on all trades performed on their market, plus I believe they added an option for non CPM trades to be put on there as well. That is probably your best resource, or would be if the site wasn't unavailable due to OOC reasons. Other than that, try either looking at the other markets, or ask around in IRC, or have a look at what others are selling for in the Commerce forum.
The best place would be Centrepoint Market and their database.
They keep records for highest, average, and last price of any entity.
It's also good place if you plan to sell your equipment.
The only problem is, their site is actualy down, due to some problems ( you can check traders form for more details.)

Other way is just to ask any traders on IRC, or Traders Lounge forum.
