    Okay, you guys in my Galaxy, my roid farm is open. I've left a message in the message area, but just in case you can't read it, I'll put it here:

    Total Cost to You = (my cost + my profit) * # roids taken.

    My cost = 5000 crystal + 1000 eonium
    My profit = 5000 metal + 2000 crystal.

    The my cost is payable immediately so I can put it back into roid scans and wave amplifiers (gives me 2 roid scans and 1 wave amplifier per roid taken).

    The my profit part is deferred until you get bigger, so I can build my fleet later. I've sent away my fleet for 10 hours as of now, 3:41 pm.

    Example pricing:

    You take three roids, you pay 15000 crystal + 3000 eonium now.
    You owe me 15000 Metal and 10000 crystal, payable later.

    Want some, come get some!
    Don' t like me, bite me! :D

    holy crap. thats expensive :suspect:

    here's how olon does it:
    I'm shifting gears to 6 asteroids in 3 ticks, starting today. This increases my expenses a bit, but it should help me meet demand and make sure we keep up a healthy pace of growth.

    The new rate:
    33k metal, 6k crystal for 6 asteroids.
    (that's 5.5k metal, 1k crystal per asteroid - still a good deal for anyone in the 20s)

    he owns the roids for a few ticks and can manage to squeeze the resources he needs out of them while he waits for people to roid him

    I've got 27 roids initiated w/ 48 sitting. Dunno about pricing, nobody in our galaxy seems to be doing anything. :(

    oh, thats what you're doing wrong.. keep your # of roids low so your initiation costs are low. keep it below 20 if you can

    Ah, I see. It's costing me 7750 for each new roid, plus the returns on the roid scans are spotty. What's a good ratio of wave amplifiers to roid scans? I've got 138 so far, I'm assuming it's more difficult to find roids the more you have.

    The 5 and 2 idea for the reward part was from the MoD in our galaxy, BTW.

    you pretty much need 3 amps/roid to get close to 100% chance of finding with a scan

    Ok, so I'm way over then, if I'm going to keep to 20 or so...
