Someone explain to me things regarding stalls? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hello, I have 2 questions today.

1) How does the maximum labor output thing work? I have a medium stall and it says 17/hour. Does that mean each person produces 17 hours of labor per hour or the entire staff combined produces 17 hours?

2) How does selling premade ships work? Do I pay for the doubloon cost myself and then sell it to others in poor? I don't get the premade thing. Thanks!

The maximum labor is the combined labor given by all employees per hour. Chances are, you will never hit 17 labor ours per hour, but you might.

Yes, you have to pay the dub cost yourself and then try to resell it for a profit.

I good start to answering similar questions is the yppedia article [url=http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Shoppe_management#Manage_Labor]shoppe managament[/url[

Fixed :)

I'd add: you can't sell premade ships through the dockside interface, if that's what you're asking. Yes, you order and then deliver the ships yourself, and then you can sell them to others by trading the deed for poe and/or dubs. Many stall owners will put a list of available premades in their stall's news, and advertise the ships they have for sale through the proper forum threads in their ocean's bazaar, or in the inns.

Going along with this question:

I've heard that only a certain percentage of labor can be done by "badges". In other words, a certain percentage is "saved" for pirates who walk in and actually do the puzzle. I've also heard this percentage is 75%/25% (25% being the "saved" one). Is this totally bogus?

The only stall/shoppe I have with active labor right now is an upgraded SY shoppe, which can use 68 labor hours per hour, and even with 6 deluxe badges working there, I don't hit that. So it's hard for me to test it.

I'm experiencing that right now now with my SY stall on Dragon's nest. Several years ago, OOO cut down on the amount of labor that they keep open for online puzzers. I'm getting 85-90% with my offline labor., so it isn't as much of a concern. Back when you could only get 70-80%, I ran into it a lot more.

I highly recommend against pre-making non-limited-editions ships to resell to players. The trading price for ships is much lower than the cost to produce them, on the doubloon oceans at least.

Similarly for Cerulean, I believe.
