How is the cost of land to claim calculated?

    I can't find anything about how much land will cost...

    Can someone post ratios or formulas used by the plugin to calculate the cost of claiming X amount of land.

    Assuming it isn't random... :)

    Thanks BBs

    Its a base cost of (500 * The Number of Claims) you already have.

    So resizing is a cheaper option till the claim gets very large.

    Then it depends on the size of the claim.
    Base starts at .4 per block, every 250 blocks in size the price doubles for the next 250 blocks.
    Below all Assume its the first claim:
    • 0 - 250 in total size : 0.4 * Size
    • 250 - 500: 0.4 * 250 + 0.8*(Size left above 250)
    Ex: 16 x 16 = 256->
    (0.4*250) + (0.8*6) = 100 + 4.8 = 104.8
    • 500 - 750: 0.4 * 250 + 0.8 * 250 + 1.2 * (Size left above 500).
    • 750 - 1000: 0.4 * 250 + 0.8 * 250 + 1.2 * 250 + 1.6 * (Size left above 750).
    • 1000 - 1250: 0.4 * 250 + 0.8 * 250 + 1.2 * 250 + 1.6 * 250 + 2.0 * (Size left above 1000).
    ... and so on.

    Ex. 32 x 32 = 1024 ->
    (0.4 * 250) + (0.8 * 250) + (1.2 * 250) + (1.6 * 250) + (2.0 * 24) -> 100 + 200 + 300 + 400 + 48 = 1048 as a single claim

    The same 32 x 32 but claimed as 2 different claims of 32 x 16:
    Ex2. 32 x 32:
    314.4 + (500 + 314.4) = 1128.8 as two claims

    The same 32 x 32 but claimed as 4 different claims of 16 x 16:
    Ex3. 32 x 32:
    104.8 + (500 + 104.8) + (1000 + 104.8) + (1500 + 104.8) = 3419.2 as 4 claims

    So after a big enough size its cheaper to take the base hit of 500 to drop the per block price of the new claim back to .4 per block but for most a single claim is the cheapest, and just keep resizing it.

    Re size cost is the difference of the two claims, so as the first two examples if you went from 16x16 to 32x32 the re sizing cost should be 943.2.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You Currently do not get money back for Unclaiming land. I'm not sure what happens when you shrink land as I'm not at home to check the code and I don't remember.

    I was asked for the information so I put it up, if no one cares that is fine.

    No, Its just amazing to see how it is coded, I am facsinated by the way it is done, and I appreciate you telling us, It just might not have come accross that way.

    I care and this helped me a lot. Sorry for not saying thanks; thanks!

    Ignore that guy though, he just posts random shit constantly to get more XP and has no idea what he's talking about.

    That is good. I went back and color coded it, not sure if that made it better or not but it seems easier to read now.

    Ahhh yes, breaks up the white, making it easier to read. Makes it more special too.
    Cheers
