How much time in 3D max do you think it takes to build a ship like the Vesta? How much money in electricity costs do you think it is to make it?

Seriously...

I reckon at best it cost them no more than $40,000 to build the Vesta, based on these very dodgy calculations. (remember a good designer is probably on $80,000 per year at most so I really don't think it took more than 3 months and two designers to do, do you??
It's a F2P game. They have all the fixed costs of servers, designers for each new season, etc. That $400k has to cover all that as well.
