Pipstycoon is an exciting browsergame business simulation which uses US$ as currency.
There are two ways to get a gold company in Pipstycoon.
First is, to open your own company. A gold mines License cost is 10 US$ a month. If you rent for more as three months you got discounts.
This is price for license. To run the company you need additional building and production tools. To buy you have to add money to your companies account.
Building and production tools for low gold is 10 US$ a month. Minimum is 3 months, so you are charged with 30 US$.
Thes are 30 US$ license + 30 US$ Tools & Building.
You get a workplace with it. So you can produce for 3 month with a monthly cost of 20 US$.
If you want to start production, you have to buy raw materials.
There are seven raw materials you need for gold.
Electricity and Natural Gas are low cost materials. But you need Wood, Iron, Stone and Dynamite. These materials are quite expensive.
If your materials are running out, you cant produce. You get an event message and your workplaces are disabled.
The cost for 1 gr Gold are now :
8 barrels oil = 8 * 0.04 = 0.32
8 parts electricity = 8* 0.04 = 0.32
8 parts natural gas = 8 * 0.04 = 0.32
8 pieces wood = 8 * 0.6 = 4.80
8 pieces iron = 8 * 0.2 = 1.60
8 pieces stone = 8 * 0.44 = 3.52
8 pieces dynamite = 8 * 1.15 = 9.20
8 hours work = 0.63
8 hours license & buildings & tools = 0.23
So we got 20,31 US$ production cost for 1 gr Gold. Price for 1 gr is now at 35 US$. So we got a win of 14,69 US$ per gr Gold.
