I have tried looking for a similar topic, but didn’t find one. Feel free to just direct me somewhere, because the last time I had tried to find something I only discovered a chicken
Woah! It’s still following me! Shoo!
How exactly does the game calculate net worth? I mean, if I took a building and looked at its cost, would I be able to calculate the number myself?
i know it takes your own gold into acount, and at least all the items in your building.
Sure! Everything you put in your stockpile increases your net worth. Everything you craft and place increases your net worth. Everything you build (though, at the moment, not everything you mine) increases your net worth.
An item’s worth is determined in it’s .json file. This number is used to calculate it’s net worth, and how much it sells for in stores, etc.
Edit: On my machine, gold counts toward your net worth. That change should make it in whenever we next have a build.
Edit 2: Our goal is to tweak net worth such that you gain an optimum amount while playing the game as intended. If you want to make a giant slab you can do that, but you’ll probably get more net worth from making multiple discrete buildings.
Please keep in mind that post was from '15 so some of that may have changed.
I do know that raw resources, such as logs and ores, do not count towards worth. And one big building should count more than a bunch of small ones.
does anyone know where this .json file is and what its full name is? i would like to look at it.
