I've read the rules about production costs but I have to admit, It's not very clear to me. Can anyone explain how to figure out construction costs a little clearer to me? I'm attempting to build a Shipyard III in deep space. Thank you

Production copst of a SY III in DS will be about 20 mil with including RM's it will be roughly 42mil

since when Jay?? When my SY II in DS costed about 37mill production cost.

Xakic, not sure if there were other issues, but according to the rules an SY2 should be around 16mil in deepspace with an SY3 being 20mil. Thats just pure construction costs and does not factor in RM costs, DC rental costs, NPCs etc.

Thanks guys. I only ask because I want to make sure I have enough credits before I start. I already have the required RM's and builders. Im looking to rent the DC off centrepoint, but before I do I want to make sure I got enough.

Thought I'd follow up on this. Construction costs were ~ 19 mil for the SY3. This price did not included the costs or RMs, and builders. All together the total cost to build a SY3 was 74 mil. Varium is somewhat rare at this time and was quiet pricy. However I feel this was a great investment and look forward to building up a personal fleet and also selling some fine ships to pad my bank.

Wow, that's some expensive RM's. Almost 3x what a NR member would pay for them thru JMC. Anyway, glad to see you got what you were after.

Since this is related, is there someplace that there is a list of Darkness costs for building different stations/ships?

That's the "value" number on the rules page for each entity.
