So this might be wrong, since i can’t see the cost of all steps

But I’m at late game where I have all the extra bits and bobs to put in my car so I started looking in to producing the componets of my car myself so I can cut even more cost… but looking at it I’m not sure if I’m going to save money or not from producing the items myself or not

The first thing i looked at was makeing the headlights myself…

So the math i could see is

1 fit lights (max upgraded)

use 6.04sec to construct its step

uses 4 lights and 1 servo

the cost of a light ~100

the cost of a servo ~35

and this is only if i read the graf right… the actual curren cost is not displayed (wish it was) just a graf pointing to somewhere and a max on the graf

makeing the cost of buying the componets ~435

now to the cost of makeing the componets urself

first I don’t see a make servo so that is a componet u have to import (or I’m just missing it)

the make light produce 1 light every 6.4sec

so to make 4 lights every 6.04 sec I need at least 5 to allways have the stock I need

to make 1 light i need 1 glass and 1 steel

price of glass ~28

price of steel ~40

total cost of raw for 1 light is then ~68

so I’m saveing ~32 $ per light i make then right?

this is where I’m not sure if the 5 factories with there power and employees cost is worth it

1 factory = 4 employees and cost 256 power to run

so 5 = 20 employees and 1280 power to run

the power can be coverd by 1 upgraded powerplant that seem to make 1944 power but need 4 more employees

so a toltal of 24 extra workers to make lights

I don’t know the cost of employees (or if it do say somewhere what a employee cost i was unable to find it)

but takeing the numbers of ppl i had hired devided by the last h payment for employees I came up with ~131,4 pr/h in cost

so the cost of makeing lights just for enployees 3153,6 pr/h in employees

I not sure how long an ingame h is in mins but it dont feel that long… looking at the cost and space i need to be able to make them myself I’m not convinsed its worth it…

I was planning to work out the math of all the diffrent cost of makeing the other componets, and see if they might be worth it or not… but at a first glanse the benefit do not seem worth the investment at least for lights…

again I might be missreading the cost from the grafs… and it would be nice if this numbers where much much more clear

in general I do want information to me more clear in the game.

but if I’m totaly wrong on this thing u can just discard this post… I’m just wondering since its realy hard to see a clear benefit over just cramming in more car lines in ur factory for max cars pr/m
