Archives » Confused on market equation.
Year 14 Day 319 17:18
Price when selling to the market = (Base Price - Owner Fee - Market Fee) x Condition - Distance Fee - Debt

My condition, RMP/batch= 800k-ish, trading = ave score, in faction that owns the station, batch on location. I get 440 offered by market. I'm missing something. What?

seems you tried to sell your stuff in a crate.
you get the money for the cratre then, not for the content.

With regards to the RMP, are you basing this on the amount it cost for you to buy in the Raw Materials, or the 'Estimated Raw Material Price' listed on the Rules Page for the item(s) in question?

listed on rules. I've got a trouble ticket (private) opened. I'll let peeps know what happens in the end. Maybe a coding that missed an update.

And the conclusion; the equation for selling to the market in the rules section is wrong. The current equation being used is screwed up. The new equation (listed below) will be implemented upon the next sync.

((2*(RMP/Batch))-((0.02*(2*(RMP/Batch)))+((0.2-0.04*TradeSkill)*((2*(RMP/Batch)))*Condition-DistanceCalc-Debt

is it me, or does it seem that the higher the trade skill you have, the more you are punished in the part ")))+((0.2-0.04*TradeSkill" .....?

Thats a skill penalty. The higher your skill, the lower the number, and the higher your sale price. So someone with trade skill of 0 has a .2 penalty to the sale price, while someone with a 5 trading skill has a 0 penalty. It makes sense if you look at it in a larger sense.

I will just have to take your word for it-it still doesn't seem right to me, I even counted the parentheses.

Kendall and I were looking at it. The equation you have is the closest approximation at the moment, the correct one will be on the rules page (Its not a simple copy/paste from the code).

However, you are indeed getting more money with a higher skill level.
