I want to build an app that calculates the ISK profit and LP cost of building ships from their blueprints.
For example, I can get a Stabber Fleet Issue Blueprint for 5 million ISK and 45,000 LP. I can get the minerals requirements for that BP and I can get the prices of those minerals to calculate the mineral cost. I can also get the price of the SFI and subtract the LP store and mineral costs to calculate profit.
There’s a couple of holes in that though:
- Is the BPC from the LP store 0 ME or some other ME level?
- What about the manufacturing tax charged by the citadel I use? If it’s 2% (is that reasonable?), what’s that 2% of? The final selling price of the SFI? The mineral price? What price is used for those?
