I have no problem giving advice on how to put ships together, nor on my pricing structure. I wish to encourage others to start shipbuilding in preparation for the time when Ascent takes off and I can no longer cope with demand :mrgreen:

Here are my Price List prices for individual Ship Modules:
Notes:
  • I have bundled together the Basic Class 1 Modules that are needed in any vessel.
  • Class 1 Capacitors and Class 1 Reactors are only needed for NPC Variant ships.
  • All Class 1 Modules can be salvaged from Class 1 Turtles and Hornets at a fraction of this cost.
Image

PC Variant "Ready to Fly" ships consist of:
The Ship's Hull which needs the following Modules installed:
  • The Basic Class 1 Module Bundle: Armour, Mining Beam, Ram Scoop, Salvage Beam and Shields
  • Capacitor
  • Computer
  • Electronics
  • Grav Generator
  • Propulsion System
  • Reactor
  • Warp Drive
The Computer, Electronics, Grav Generator, Propulsion System and Warp drive MUST be the same Class as the Ship's Hull. The Capacitor and Reactor can be any Class, but bear in mind the following:
  • If a lower Class Capacitor and/or Reactor is installed flying performance will be negatively affected.
    However, there is some benefit to be given to Cargo Capacity by installing a Promethium Reactor one Class lower than the Ship's Hull; the effect on performance is minimal.
  • Flying performance can be enhanced by installing a higher Class Capacitor and/or Reactor.
    However, there is a detrimental effect on Cargo Capacity that may not offset the benefit gained.
These ships may also be fitted with a Hyperdrive Module with the same Class as the Hull, to allow independent travel between star systems.

NPC Variant ships consist of:
The Ship's Hull which needs the following Modules installed:
  • The Basic Class 1 Module Bundle: Armour, Mining Beam, Ram Scoop, Salvage Beam and Shields
  • Class 1 Capacitor and Class 1 Reactor
  • Computer
  • Electronics
  • Grav Generator
  • Propulsion System

The Computer, Electronics, Grav Generator and Propulsion system MUST be the same Class as the Hull.

If you need any more advice, then give me a shout.

I did write a Player Guide for shipbuilding which is in the Steam Community Guides section for Ascent. It was a long time ago and may need updating, but give it a look and let me know if it does.

I am starting to build some for fleas. I have or will buy all the parts BUT the hyperdrive. Janus A does not have it and I can't figure out the difference between hyper drive and warp drive which it does have. I know what they do but not how to get the HD. help please.

You have to research the HD from class 1 on up.

You can determine the prices for a module for any class by halving or doubling from price tha is known.

For HDs I charge 210,000,000 for Class 11. Therefore:

Class 10: 105,000,000
Class 9: 52,500,000
Class 8: 26,250,000
Class 7: 12,125,000
Class 6: 6,062,500
Class 5: 3,031,250

You may want to round (up or down) from these numbers, but they should get you a reasonable profit margin.

Hi,

I am new arround here :)
Would like to sell a hyperdrive lvl12 with Niobium.
Did see that you sell it together with a ram for 2800, but could i buy the hyperdrive lvl12 together with a mining beam lvl 12 ... for 2800 niobium ?
Please correct me if I write something wrong ... like I said it are my first steps here ;)

I can do that deal for you. The modules will be ready tomorrow.

However, I would like to say that my Price List has confused you a little... :?

The prices are for each module, not the combination.
