Working with the economy in what seems to be a fringe time zone (evenings, US Pacific) has forced me to get a better understanding of what ships actually cost to build. I broke the Traders Brig down to minimum per unit material costs. Excluding the option woods this appears to be the material cost percentages at the source level (craft). Material (100%), not including option woods. Oak Log 22.84% Fir Log 17.37% Stone Block 14.87% Hemp 13.73% Iron Ore 11.45% Food Supplies 10.62% Lignum Vitae Log 5.31% Coal 3.82% Of course the actual costs depend on how many buildings are controlled and whether the remainder is obtainable at reasonable contract prices or you are stuck at AI contract (4x production cost). A build with fir options and controlling the top four buildings yields an estimated build cost in the neighborhood of 48,000 But I was very surprised by the low coal percentage. Does this look accurate?
