I have decided that if I am going to take crafting seriously I need to start managing income and expenditure and the best way to do so is via a spreadsheet. I have done this before in several MMOs (notably Eve online- spreadshhets in space) and this has been more straight forward as there is no element of chance. You just have to log costs to make and sale price and bingo, you have your profit margin. I am happy with the concept of percentage chance etc and I can easily craete a spreadsheet which I am happy with for components etc however, I dont know how it would work when crafting a limited item using residue. How do you know how much of the item is the sucessful craft and how much is the residue? I crafted a few whips on caly and most successful ones were a global and there seems to be no way in game to see what was residue and what was the item (without stopping after every successful click and writing down how muchg residue remains). You can check the size of the sucessful craft using entropia life tracker but this only works for globals. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
