I did a thing.
First, thank you to the nice people on the discord who linked me to the Master Base Planner v1.6a (Ignition).
This spreadsheet is an analysis of all Pioneer and Settler Recipes, using the default Return on Investment (ROI) data from the Master Base Planner (MBP). Once I had all that data, I then went to every good on the Prom CX and copied the volume traded because goods with no volume aren’t going to sell in a reasonable amount of time.
I then wanted to find those goods which have a good ROI and a (hopefully) healthy market, so I would actually make the profit back in a reasonable amount of time. Since we want a small ROI and a large volume, and divided the two and sorted that. However, even that wasn’t enough to find what I wanted (take a look at Office supplies to see what I mean). After sorting by this new metric – Volume/ROI – I then went thru the list and checked if the market currently appears healthy and color coded the results.
My goal with distributing this information is two fold:
To get input into my decision making process, to make sure I’m measuring what I want to measure.
To help improve the range of goods with healthy CX markets.
