Not totally done, but done enough and I thought it should be put in; remember this is before tax cuts as well.

Maximum Sell prices/Minimum buy prices:

Wood: 122?/10.78
Food: ?/11.22
Fish: ?/8.96
Paper: 195.75/10.17
Coal: 236.50/12.54

Tools: 467.50/25.30
Oil: 500/30
Steel: 562.50/37.50
Grog: 612.50/45.50

Catnip: 1300/108
Diamonds: 1450/121.50
Unobtainium: 1950/182

Not that pretty, and I'm pretty sure the low-end goods are off a bit, but it's what I got for now.

I don't really have an explanation for this, but I just got a max sell price of 1462.50 for diamonds excluding bonuses.

Before I had written down in my notes 1450G from my own past observations, was this recently changed?

:query: :worry:

No, I think 1462.50 is right, I think it was something like that. 1450 might be my earlier estimate. I'll try and see if it's something different, and leave 1450 for now, it should be close enough to reality.

Also, I'm pretty sure I know a bunch of "set" consumer/producer skylands that the game uses, would that be helpful to post? It's impossible to know when they'll be there in what combination, though.

It is correct, and is the only value my alt is allowed to sell at. :remytasty:

The FAQ should still be good, the only information that changed since the last round was that batch buying and selling will now hurt your condition a lot more. If you want my lazy version instead, here it is:

Profit = (colors between buy and sell) * (quality of good) / (taxes on good - tax reductions) + (fudge factor)

Essentially, buying blue and selling yellow = buying green and selling red, better goods sell for more but carry a higher tax on buying and selling so you shouldn't trade the highest goods until you have more tax reduction skills (the worst good is the tree, everything gets higher quality as you go clockwise, taxes don't hurt until grog), and then there's special cases (paper and steel have no trade skill for tax reduction, but the trader crew gets a double tax reduction bonus).

A better option for now would be the Trading article on the wiki, I think I updated it all to the current round. I didn't start it or chose the format, but it should be accurate. The wiki in general is a great place to look for information :cheeky: and if there's something you can't find on the wiki, let us know so we can help and add the info to the wiki as well :chatty:
