Baths

Postby Daddysthirsty » Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:14 am

It seems that the cost for the supplies for the bath house will be to expensive to offer the nicer baths.
I am hoping this is just a programming oversight and something that could be addressed.

Maybe I am missing something but if I buy the supplies it will be a net loss of 41 dollars.
So I will not be able to have that option.

As Paul Harvey would say.. The rest of the story...

I have the bath house fully upgraded. I have the Healing Bath Option.
Healing Bath

This is what it takes to do one of those baths.
Unit Amt Cost Total
Salt 1.9 5 9.5
Arnica 1.7 50 85
Aloe Vira 1.9 10 19
113.5 This is the total cost of the supplies for one bath.
Price of bath 99.9 This is the max you can charge.
After Tax $73 This is what you will get from the sale
Net loss -$41 You will lose 41.

So I though I would go pick the plants.
It cost me 42 xp to get one plant.
Hmmm now I know why we do not have plants in the shops.
So the way this is programmed this option will not work so the healing bath function will not work.

Maybe I am missing something..

I would love for this age to be the best one yet. Lots of fun. People making money.
If anyone has any ideas I will test them.

Did you figure out how much profit you can gain on the lower baths, just out of curiousity?

I have not tested them as much.
The key is that I just raised the price on them so at least I am covering the cost.
I still need to track the money and supplies for a few day.. Real Life won over that but it is on my list.
So I raised the prices on them

The Max you can charge is 99.9 so you can not raise the price enough to cover the costs. The best you can do is not offer it.
Well that hacks me off. I was like what? So I posted.

Now keep in mind I have not taken in account for the wear and tear of the building. I will have to track that over time to see about adjusting them.

I also need to figure out if people will come. If it is better to just bathe at home due to my price they may just put me out of business.
Well a building that can not support itself is a waste of code if you ask me.
Yeah the idea is nice and all but if they age will last it will have to function.

so I will just have to hang on..
I would love to help and hope this is seen as a positive thing and not a pain.

It will take some time before we see any one pick more often as certain trades require plants not obtainable in shops, and plants on markets will surely be sold cheaper than the shops. For your example, I don't think it makes sense to price too high either, since it is mainly for healing the illness as offered so you can check the price needed to cure the illness. If you set it too high the customer can take your brown bath and buy the cure himself which makes it cheaper than the max you set for this bath. You can not buy the stock needed for this bath to prevent losses if so. Of course, I can't be sure what max is still acceptable, if the current one isn't.
