I can't claim to be an expert, and am not in any way, as i produce only 4000 steel a day, and none of it for the market (It is for expansion). However, i find that when i make EVERYTHING myself (minerals, power, water, chemicals, coal, iron ore), i can get the price down to roughly $25 from the $135 the NPC sells for. The only issue is, 4000 a day is not enough, and it was expensive (for me) to set it up initially, but you are saving roughly $110 a unit, which in batch of 4000+, is good for a small company.

Just my thoughts! No real judgement just showing what can be done.

I entirely agree with the points of true production cost, and have expressed this before.

Those who WANTS to be in the STEEL business, please feel free to, and it's not you I'm writing to, though 1 might apply. Those who wants to be a BIG Kapilands company should read on.

There are two ways to become a big company in kapilands.

I know its a little off topic, but if any of you steel producers are looking for people to buy your steel, then i pay 135+1cap per Quality (min Q5 preferably Q10+ but ill accept Q5) so if anyone of you are interested let me know my company is

I totally agree that the market NPC price is way too low, it should be about 160 caps...
:D

Will you explain your reasoning behind that statement, please.

the problem with steel is the time it takes for mines to produce enough coal and iron

if steel only took 2 coal and 1 iron, then the cost would be lower

higher quality of coal and iron would also be worth more, so you'd see a few specialists

instead, coal and iron quality have so little value that they must compete with stones, which are selling for at least 20...

I will gladly pay 20 for any stones sent to me

i used to make steel then i found more profit in power but i remember that i left steel because i sold 1.000 daily to a guy and made like a few thousand caps profit
becoming a retailer took a long time
