Quote:
Medium Structure hulls will cost around 350-700m ISK in materials to build.
Large Structure hulls will cost around 3-7b ISK in materials to build.
X-Large Structure hulls will cost around 30-70b+ ISK in materials to build.



Is this still an accurate price-range? Or not anymore.

I've not confirmed, but market prices have supposedly significantly increased since the blog.

We'll know more after Wednesday.

Those are the prices for the BPOs from NPCs.

That's not the price of the citadel 'egg'. The price for the citadels should be cheaper for the medium and large; and I think based on what CCP Quant said during the Fanfest keynote, more expensive for the XL.

Over in the industry and science sub forum they are discussing your question.

"I've plugged in the numbers they gave for materials and PI into a spreadsheet I made...with current prices in Amarr an Astrahus is over 1b without the cost of BPCs and the Fortizar is over 11B"

and another says

"According to me spreadsheet, just the P4 PI needed to make a M citadel would be 926M. But that doesn't include making them into components. My sheet calculates the total based on component sell and buy prices, but unfortunately structure components is such a new market the prices are no where near realistic or usable.

For example, the price to build a M citadel based on component buy price is 887M. Which is just wrong because it is less than P4 cost. And to build based on buy price you are looking at 2.1B. And that is because what few components there are on the market are marked up quite a bit currently."


So it does look like prices has gone up, and that is also what ccp says was the reason behind the BPO prices going up, as Pak Narhoo wrote.

Like I wrote in my edited post: "I can't read." :)



It will ring in the end of single man/ small corp POS's, going to be interesting to see where that leads to.

And what are maintaining cost for them?

Running cost for the actual Citadel with no service modules fitted is zero.

Costs for the service modules have two levels, a start-up cost and a running cost.

The Market is 2160 blocks to start it up (on-line it) and running cost of 30 blocks per hour.

The Clone Center costs 540 blocks to start it up and 7.5 blocks per hour running.

The Reprocessing Facility costs 270 blocks to start up and 3.75 blocks per hour.

That's all we have at the moment, so far (subject to chage) there is no repair facility while docked so you can't repair drones etc, however the ship will get a free repair to fitted systems while tethered.

Seriously?


That's terrible.

Yes, so much has been removed while testing that the launch on Wednesday will be a little disappointing for a great many.

You do have Offices and can rent them out, but there is no (from what I understand) direct trading between characters, most of the good stuff will not be here until late this year/early next.

We do have a very pretty parking lot Smile

Actually, when tethered, everything on the ship will be repaired. Including drones and burnt out modules.

That's odd because testing on SiSi didn't repair one of my damaged drones and I had to dock in an NPC station to repair it, but then there are still some subtle bugs to iron out so you could well be correct.

Yep, repair is free when you undock or warp to citadel while Tethered.
It will repair all of items, burned modules, drones, shield hull armor, and recharge capacitor.

If I recall correctly the repair of all ship bits occurs over 90 seconds.

It's going to be a very busy week for Eve, us, and CCP...that much is very certain. It's also, for me personally and many others, very interesting to see what comes of these structures...both creatively and destructively!Twisted

One thing I'm feeling much better about hearing is what I gather is how it will cost the owner to build, setup, and maintain and operate a Citadel. From what it sounds like, the rather "ominously" large cost to getting a hold of one compared to say a lone POS and some starter modules is somewhat offset by the fact that the cost of maintaining in terms of fuel for instance is flexible rather than some arbitrarily set amount that you must pay regardless of what you intend on doing with your POS. The only way to do largely the same thing with a POS was to strip the tower and offline the bugger...or pay in full per 30 days. Allowing Citadel owners to online and offline services so as to balance the cost of operation with the impact of general functionality rather than having the POS' method of "pay, no pay" will help make the initial cost of manufacturing and setup easier and more financially manageable. I haven't really dug deep into the information of the Citadel changes nor tried my hand at them on SiSi, but I get the feeling from what others have said that the old "solo-POS" owners might not be so extinct when all is said and done. I keep hearing a lot of things from others that make me think, "Oh, that's pretty neat," more so than the few, "Well, that sucks," so I'm rather on the optimism side of things so far.

"Tomahawks?"

"----in' A, right?"

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."
