So, nobody really knows how much Thar’Ga costs in reality. I am talking about researching all available options in Ellydium Ship Tree for Thar’Ga alone.
Problem is that with each researched upgrade, incremental increases grow even further. The more you upgrade, the more you have to invest in percentages.
Much better and more viable option from the start would be, that we have fixed values for each corresponding research node or module that do not increase after they are researched.
In any case, research costs details in resources should always stay present, even after you unlocked a module, for informational reasons mostly. We got no such information now.
Even worse, we can’t see the costs of any locked modules, which is essential, if we want to plan in advance.
I want to say that Ellydium Interface is good, but it could have been much better, especially, if it would include all required information that would make planning in advance much easier.
I assume that fixed requirements will not be possible to do for Thar’Ga anymore, though. Reason is obvious. Compensation for people that farmed or paid for the content already.
One good example is Federation’s destroyer Sirius, which was the only one, that did not require a 300 Federation Activators. Jericho and Empire both did, later.
However, we will get 9 more Ellydium ships that will come soon. So, fixed requirements for those are still possible and I assume, highly recommended.
So, to summarize.
Costs in total would not be any smaller than right now, but balanced in such way, that you can actually plan in advance, which will make progression a bit slower, but more predictable.
Thar’Ga - Gunship Fighter - stays as it is now (incremental increases)
All upcoming Ellydium ships - fixed resource prices (without any price increases)
