Anyone have a good feel for what we should be charging for these?

First of all, welcome to SWGCraft. I just bought some smalls and mediums on Flurry for 30k/60k respectively. I suspect the price will drop after the novelty and I did get them to help a friend so..."prices may vary due to conditions". I just "re-arranged" my 20+ buildings after the purge so I'm not too enthused about shifting things around again. Would have been nice to have introduced the new structures before the pack up, but that's SOE.

I sell small for 25k, 50k for mediums and 75k for large ones and I sell faster than my 3 factories can produce (chimaera).
It's roughly twice the price I charged for the old standard houses and I think it's around 6cpu. Not bad for recykled resources.

Everyone was going nuts on GU9 with the new houses! :roll:

Our mayor/guild leader was going to rearrange our city until he found out the footprint for the new mediums was different than the old. should have heard him on voice chat :oops: :mrgreen:

There are 3,388 resources in a Small House, 20,600 in a Medium and 37,334 in a Large. So you are getting 7.37 cpu on your Smalls, 2.47 cpu on your Mediums and 2.01 cpu on your Larges.

You really used to sell at half this cost? Unless your purpose was to sell "at cost" to guild members, you were losing money on those Larges.

My take is simple, price what the market tells you to:
anything less than normal market price is handing the credits to the sneering buyer 8)
anything above market price that is sold, lucky you :P

Well tbh I only sold small houses before, medium and large ones I did on demand for free to guildies.

I think i have to check my spreadsheet though, I'm pretty sure it said I was over 5 cpu on all of the houses.

But everything was made from recykled stuff and I did check the bazaars before setting the prices.
and besides, what I might lost on houses was gained on my other vendors who sold for like 15 millions the first 24 h.

Ok I can confirm I did a mistake in my spreadsheet. I only included the resources in Walls, not the 10 structure modules... Oh well, thanks for spotting it, now I will have a hard time raising my prices lol.
