Item Cost ListEdit
Sometimes players like to trade items with each other. But how do they know if they are getting a good deal?
It's easy when they're trading raw materials for a crafted item (e.g., low quality metal for a pistol) - but what if I want to trade wood for metal fragments, or gunpowder for wood planks? The list below is a starting point.
Based on the typical time and calories used to harvest raw materials like wood, ore and food, it's possible to compare their relative harvesting cost. These base costs can then be used to find the relative cost of refined and crafted items. In the list below, the cost of each item is compared to the cost of a unit of gunpowder.
This is not a price list. Prices are determined by whoever is trading. This is simply a way to compare the relative cost of various in-game items.
But why gunpowder? Gunpowder is typically the most sought-after resource. It is used for making ammo, as well as Explosive Charges (currently the most valuable in-game item). This makes it very desirable, and most people will be willing to trade their excess items for more gunpowder.
Why don't I see radiation pills listed? Certain 'found' items like radiation pills, cans of food and such can not be crafted, As such, there was no way to assign a cost to them. Certainly they have value, but that will have to be negotiated between the players doing the trading.
So here you are. Using a 'gunpowder standard' (GP), here is the list of relative costs:
