I have been working recently on a spreadsheet to help builders and traders on the proper breakdown of T3 gasses, salvage, reactions, components and here it is!
Presenting Drazig's Tech 3 Component Worksheet!
This worksheet was created in Excel and will break down each component from a full ship, down to polymer reactions into every level, down to their most basic components if you want.
---If you want to make one full Tech 3 ship complete with all 5 subsystems, you just put a 1 under the "Full Ship" input box on the entry page and it breaks down how many of each hybrid components you need in the 1st Tier, what reactions and salvage those components break down to in the 2nd Tier and then what the reactions break down to with gasses and minerals in the 3rd Tier.
It breaks it down in both the exact AND rounded amounts so you have the numbers you need for either trading someone with exact amounts or if you wish to make the whole ship and every reaction yourself. Also, on the totals page, it gives you an easy to read set of all of the breakdowns so you can refer to everything in one page. Coming Soon!
I will be adding a calculations page so that you can break down the cost of the components that you will be requiring by having the user put in the average market value of the components/salvage/gasses and helping determine whether it is cheaper to build, buy or trade for what you need!
The sheet is password protected just for the fact that I did put a bit of work into it. If you would like to suggest or make changes or give me some input on the next version of it (such as what you would want to see), please feel free to mail me in game or leave a comment here on the thread.. I would love to hear from everyone about what they think. Also included is a word document with a simple breakdown of all the components and what you need in making each one from reactions to subsystems and hulls.
