    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    I've now went though all stages of the game. Being in SAAB I can state that even when all the goods are produced from special buildings rates from true fair trade calculator make sense. Still after this period of time I can state that this system is pretty complicated and hard to implement to...

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Half a year passed from the topic start. At the moment I see that there is no way this might be a standard. So it's only for certain people to use inside the standing structure to make it more fluid. It's like having an insider information on stockmarket. 1 person will not do much on an...

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Agreed on the first 3 things. Need to add one more. Rarity also comes along when you are on new server with only several people in the last ages. As a general rule yes. But to people who are willing to count their resources - it's good to use true fair as a base to plan the most effective...

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Completely true. That means that you chose the most uneffective way possible to produce your IA goods. That's why they cost that much to you. That doesn't mean your trade partners should pay for your FP spendings. They can just trade with other people who just built IA goods buildings.

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Thanks for the post. This paragraph makes no sence. But your whole point is partially correct and I agree with some of the points, but not the conclustion you got from it. There is nothing fare of giving free VF goods to BA player 1:1. Even if VF player got them very cheap they still worth a...

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Brilliant notice. That's exactly what I use now. The current "fair" system is 1:1 and 2:1. So I produce the cheapest good from the "true fair" and trade it much better than 2:1 but still much more profitable for me that producing it by "true fair". My trades fly extremely fast.

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Thank you for the clarification. I was answering to particular eaxmple of "I get unwanted goods for helping friend". Still the goods have the price you need to pay (number of tiles used to produce them * time). Doesn't matter what you need now or tomorrow. Every good has it's own space * time...

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Yes and No. Yes there are additional factors like GBs, special buildings, rarity and roads. No, the don't matter that much. In most cases roads are distributed equally among buildings. Too close to equal distribution to have it as a valuable factor. Rarity is something that ends while lots of...

    Special goods buildings. What era to build? (Tribal square, Terrace Farm, Sunken Treasure etc...)

    Main table definitions: 1) Population per square. Shows how many people you get from 1 tile of the most effective (people per tile) non premium residential building from the particular age. 1) 8x8x8 production. Shows how many tiles you need to get 30 goods per day if you place 3x8 hours jobs in...

    Virtual Era added. Both to the calculator and the trade tables in the post.

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Yes. And you can see exactly what are those resources in my calculations. Because of 1:1 trade most people build the smallest chain and in the end there is the shortage of the most expensive goods in the era.

    "Fair Trade" completely unfair. True fair trade calculator

    Agent is correct. Rarity is something occuring during only few players getting to certain era. It works only for new servers and new ages. With time it balances out so that efficiency is on the first place. As for efficiency I'll think about adding VF to the document. As I see it now, not too...
