    Hey guys, its Legion here and I am back to bring you another awesome tool I made. This is to help you plan and calculate you base cost before you even place the core!

    ALL IMPORTANT INFORMATION WILL BE IN ORANGE

    To start I will be displaying the resources required to each base component:
    NOTE: all crafting recipies here require ONE Blank Blueprint!

    Bases can be a max size of 15X15X8

    RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS

    WOOD:
    -Wooden Wall: 45 wood logs
    -Wooden Door: 55 wood logs
    -Wooden Platform: 45 wood logs


    STONE:
    -Stone Wall: 45 stone pebble
    -Stone Door: 45 stone pebble, 20 wood logs
    -Stone Platform: 45 stone pebble


    REINFORCED CONCRETE:
    -Concrete Wall: 75 stone pebbels
    -Concrete Door: 100 stone pebbles
    -Concrete Platform: 75 stone pebbles


    OTHER:
    -Chest: 35 wood logs
    -Campfire: 20 stone pebbels, 15 wood logs
    -Barbed Wire: 25 stone pebbels
    -Reinforced Barbed wire: 45 stone pebbels
    -Sand Barrier: 45 stone pebbels, 35 wood logs


    COST AND DROP CHANCE
    Blank Blueprints:
    Cost= $550 per Blank Blueprint
    Sell price=$350 per Blank Blueprint
    Drop chance:
    -Residential Loot Piles
    (white): 2%
    -Rare Loot Piles
    (Yellow): 4%
    -Cannot be found in any other loot piles


    Split Logs(wood logs):
    Cost=$10 per Split Log
    Sell price=$4
    Obtained:
    -Use a Fire Axe or a Hatchet and mine a tree to get split logs.
    -Cannot be obtained via loot piles


    Stone Pebbels:
    Cost=$10 per Stone Pebbel
    Sell price=$4
    Obtained:
    -Use a pickaxe or a Sledge Hammer and mine a Stone Block to get Stone Pebbels.
    -Cannot be obtained via loot piles


    Calculations format:
    For every wall, door, platform and more always add 1 blank blueprint) at the end count up the number of each place able object and put the number in the appropriate location.
    NOTE: Only replace: (#), (Type), and ($) with your numbers!

    (#)(Type) walls=(#) stone=($)
    (#)(Type) door= (#)stone=($) (#)wood=($)
    (#)(Type) platform= (#)Stone=($)
    (#)Chest: (#) wood=(#)
    (Add others below if needed with the following format:)
    (#)(Type)=(#)Stone=($), (#)wood=($)

    Totals
    (#)stone=(#)
    (#)wood=($)

    Materials cash total
    ($)


    Blank Blueprints required:
    (#)X$550=($) <-Total cash value of blueprints

    Than add the blueprints value with the material cost here \/
    GRAND TOTAL OF BUILDING SUPPLIES: ($)

    That should be how much your base will cost if no errors are made:

    EXAMPLE:
    Blueprints:
    18-walls(1, 3 blocks high wall)
    20-platforms(for the roof/floor)
    2-Doors(Airlock)
    10-(Chests, makes 5 double chests)
    0-Campires(light)
    -----
    50 total
    18+20+2+10+0=50
    blueprints=$550 $550X50=$27,500

    Blueprints total: $27,000

    18 stone walls=810 stone=$8,100
    2 Stone door=
    90 stone=$900 40 wood=$400
    20 Stone platform= 900 stone=$9,000
    10 Chests: 350 wood=$3,500

    Totals
    1,800 stone=$18,000
    390 wood=$3,900

    Materials cash total
    $21,900



    GRAND TOTAL OF BUILDING SUPPLIES: $49,400

    Another note! That will make a 15X15X4 stone base with 5 chests and an airlocked door
