excuse me but I think the whole convoluted formula is too much to understand for many of us. and what is posted on the school pages is misleading.
would it be that horrible to make it like it 'implies' and give us 15 trade points an item, as long as we don't unlock the next item.

Even without any convulated formula, you mis-interpretated 'the number you needed to unlock the item' to be your trade xp at that point in time most probably.
Gronk did explain earlier
Gronk wrote:leann, think of it this way. Unlocking an item is not what starts the trade point counter for the item. Reaching the trade points required to unlock it is what starts the counter. You will only get 15 points from an item if you build nothing but that item from the first moment you are able to. I don't know if that's any clearer, but I hope it helps. :mrgreen:

If your current trade xp is the same as the xp required to unlock the new item- you make 15 more of them, you get 15 more trade xp. Otherwise, no.

Hi again everyone! The confusion here all seems to stem from when the trade points from an item start accumulating. I'll now make my very best effort to make it as simple as possible to determine if you can still earn trade points from an item. I hope it works. :wish:

You will need to know only three numbers:

---> Your current trade points
---> The trade points required to unlock whatever you're building
---> 15

Use this simple calculation ---> required to unlock +15

If the answer you get is equal to or lower than your current trade points then you've earned all the trade points you can from the item.

So there you go. Now, go! Build! Learn!

If you are still confused, just make 10 of everything and you will have your trade points for every item made! :D
