On my current level this is my my money spread
5T out of the 7T money is all from ore. and i only started selling my ore because i did the math and found all bars after Neodymium don't make money, selling the ore from them will just make you more money and leaves my smelters smelting things that make money and i don't have to change the smelters as much. I should add that i already had some AD points spent in ore sell value because after my second level i was like i thought it seemed good (it's at 45% rn), which maybe i'm right. Curios to see if other people aren't making money from high tier Bars. (also wonder if fizzer will tweak the math because i really think he meant for bars to be worth more)
some examples from my current level:
Neodymium needs 81K Neodymium and 228K Gold. Neodymium ore costs 13k and gold ore costs 625.
81K * 13k = 1..053B and 228K * 625 = 142.5M adding those gets 1.1955B and the bar sells for "1.1B" which idk how that rounds but the ore seems like it would round to 1.2B so i assume it's more.
Dysprosium needs 354K Dysprosium, 437K Yttrium, 1.18K Silicon, and 1.42K Lead.
Dysprosium ore= 5.15M, Yttrium Ore = 2.43M, Silicon Ore = 66, Lead Ore = 31.
5.15M * 354K = 1.8231T, 2.43M * 437K = 1.06191T, and those added ups is 2.88501T and the Bar sells for 2.39T. this one has a lot of a bigger gap,
still not a lot but since you only have to spend like maybe 200 or 300? to upgrade ore sell value all the way seems worth to me. (obviously things like increase AC and Merc Advancements are still worth more)
