Creative DW money makin' for the new and the old (who didnt notice it yet)

Money Maker 1: The humble RPG

Buy it in SS for $948
Take it to a nearby camp and break it down for parts.

The RPG (wiki data) will give you
Scrap: 2-4
CP: 4-6
EP:1

Bring that back to SS and sell it to the NPCs

Here is the breakdown:
Current Scrap Value: $110 (RPG returns $220-$440)
Current Car Parts Value: $368 (RPG returns $1472-$2208)
Current Electronics Value: $1583 (RPG returns $1583)

Total resale value of breakdown: $3275-$4231

Profit: $2327 to $3283

----

Downside: that humble 4 spaces of cargo used to get it TO camp becomes 85-135 spaces to get it back to town. So taking your Workhorse class Pickup (that you bought from me... hint hint) with its A armor and 135 - 140 cargo might be able to bring in 35 of these puppies to camp, you will be coming home with only the parts from one or two of them.

However, if you are using the "drivin back n forth" method of training a scout, this might be more profitable than the old Elmsfield run. And who knows, maybe that camp owner will trade you somethign nice like a 3L Rotary in exchange for the parts you cant haul off or discard.

Hauling OUT 9 EPs (from hauling in 9 RPGs is still over $5400 PROFIT ($14,247 in sales) and then you have 40-60 CP and 18-36 Scrap to use as barter with the camp owner.

Yes- what Zazul said!

Most camps are always needing EPs

Once they see what you're putting in- they'll thank you much more nicely than making a couple of grand a trip- and you don't have to haul that weight back.

Ceptin' there aren't any RPGs in SS most of the time (and probably never will be now as every one that is available will be bought up for this ;0)

If memory serves you can do the same with MMLs (but they are bulkier to begin with)

And by far the quickest way for new- or returning players to make money is Town deathraces. If you don't know how- ask a VET.

EG:

There are Town Rallys or deathrallys every night in SS or GW.
I enter them to test new builds for CoE, and for the practice.

(Someone- probably XMAN is going to be a smart*** and say"If you get so much practice- why are you so bad in CoE!")

1st prize is $30,000 and i'm usually the only player in it!
Takes 10 mins- I would like some company tho- make it more fun!

Town combats events are even better.

Price of 30+ for the first and 25+ for the second.
...and you can register 2 cars. So that's 50k+ in just the same 10 mins.

ill take this opportunity to offer work to any new players looking for some camp running. I need some plastics and i have stacks of tyres to go to camp for meltdown (1 standard tyre= 1 plastic). Ill supply all the tyres all i need are some transporters willing to run to Courts of Chaos plastic plant and back to ss. Its not a long jaunt from town and will give you the chance to train scouts and drivers/also get familiar with more ss maps. If anyone is interested please send me a PM and we will hash out the details.

Great points in this thread.
Looks to St Crispin "What about the cost of fuel to and from camp, and even the cost or repairs reloads etc."
;)

There aren’t any because guess who’s “Makin Money StC’s way”!

StC of course and yes all your RPGs are mine.

Which I also do.  But the initial purchase cost for MML and GG makes these uninviting.  I do however keep ALL my damaged ones and ship them out for breakdown.generally I run 2-3 MML or GG or RPG, per truck, 3 trucks per squad, 3 squads...  along with about 45-60 food per squad for camp.  Drop off that 180 food, break down, load the EPs, donate the CPs and Scrap, maybe pick up a “payment” for the Food delivery Service.

Of course, but this was for a new or returning player- and Combats are WAAAAAY more dangerous for unskilled players than hangin at the back of a Deathrace and picking off the AI
