I tried to just make it short based on the numbers from the game.
The factory lists 10 units of water to 7 units drinking water just units. So when I look at the weights the weights of the units are different and to make the match anything can be changed but it does not matter how I explain it I am still just told I am wrong. And even after all the other explanations and jokes no one has explained about the unit difference . So yes like I explained before 10 units of water making 70 units DW the weights total to an amount to make sense. But even when I post that I am told that is wrong.
I know the weights are for shipping that is my whole entire point. So for shipping the factory needs 10T of water to make .7T of DW, DW can weight less but it would be more units. So now if I would talk about shipping water I would again be endlessly told I don’t understand. But if the weights were correct then the actual interaction of correct shipping would take place you would look and say oh I can buy 10 water for X ship it for Y and make my own Dw for Z, or I can buy dw for X1 and ship it for Y1 for a total of Z1. None of that works out now with the units off.
There could even end up agreements on the planets that made water where no one would sell water, they would only sell DW. So carry that through to every item where to only me I guess the units are off and none of that is happening. Or someday there could be an interplanetary exchange and water would only trade on that, And DW would trade on the global
Same as the BBH you have alum and Iron it makes sense when the weights are correct because alu can cost more but the BBH-A would cost a lot less to ship. The BBH-I would be used in closer systems and the BBH-A in more distant systems. But again I accept that I am just not smart enough for the game because I guess I am the only person in the game that thinks the units should convert to the same numbers in the end.
And I does not matter how long of a post I type I am still just told I dont understand the game or what ever I am doing I should not be doing. Before deleted my account from the game I made BDE on Prom, I explained why I changed in other post where I was told again over and over I don’t know what I am doing.
I would buy C and H off the market I could spend $1000 on inputs make 200 PPE for $5 /unit then take 150 PPE and make a BDE for $450 and sell them for $2000 on the market. both factories took 8hrs it was a perfectly timed loop. I purchased everything from the market for multiple reasons, one of them being shipping. Say I would need 10H (C was all made locally) there was no way for me to just order 10H and get it. When I would calculate the cost of flying my ship there and back it would be $8,000 - $10,000 round trip. Maybe it was $6,000 to $8,000 after the changes one fuel got cheaper but the usage was increased by 3. And again any time I would ask about shipping or shipping raw materials I was told I did not understand.
So I am done I and just not smart enough for the game, I hit the remove account button or what ever it is called on the website but it did not delete my forum account it will not stop sending me updates. I have asked for it to be deleted but its not yet.
So instead of telling me over and over line by line how every point in this post is wrong you can laugh at my ignorance yourself Just explain to me one thing just one. How can the factory screen show one set of numbers and the weight screen show something else when you add all the units up to someone as uniformed as myself they should still add up to around the same totals. Because yes H2O can be 1T and DW .1T but to me you would not use 10T of water to make .7t DW it seems to me the same units are not used on all the screens but hey that’s just me and this is my last post.
Have fun laughing at all this and playing the game.
