Description

The Hideout; initially found as an abandoned and cluttered bomb shelter without any means of sustaining life. The player can build and improve various Hideout modules, such as the power generator, water collection system, ventilation, medical treatment facility, intelligence center, heating, bathroom and other advanced modules.

Features

To improve the Hideout to operational condition, the first thing the player will need to install is the Power Generator, which consumes fuel. With a lack of fuel, production and regeneration of characteristics will be slowed or disrupted. It should also be noted that the size of the stash will directly depend on the level of Hideout stash. Players with a Limited Edition of the game will receive an upgraded stash size, up to level 4. In addition to the basic modules of the Hideout, the player will be able to install advanced modules that drastically improve living standards and security, accelerate skills leveling, and allow production of unique items and resources. What is worth noticing separately, is a full-fledged shooting range, where the player can test weapons. The Hideout will be an integral part of the game, which will justify all out-of-raid processes that happen to the character - restoring health, stash size, access to services of merchants, and objects research and events in the world of Escape from Tarkov.

Notes

  • A list of all the possible crafts is available here: Crafts
  • Every item crafted in the hideout will have the found in raid status
  • Every 1 fuel resource powers the Hideout for 12 minutes 38 seconds (25 minutes 16 seconds with Solar Power module, also increased with Hideout management skill up to 33 minutes 41 seconds)
  • The generator must be active in order to begin crafting in the Hideout. After the crafting has begun power can be turned off. This will increase the crafting time by more then 14 times.
  • The lavatory does not require the generator to be on to start crafting, and it does NOT increase the crafting time.
  • Right mouse button in FPS view will turn on a flashlight
  • The generator needs to be running in order for the Illumination module level 2 and 3 to work properly. Otherwise the chosen lighting source will dim and flicker.
  • Crafting items and upgrading hideout zones improves your Hideout management skill which in turn improves bonuses, slots, and decreases consumption rates.
  • Crafting items improves your Crafting skill which decreases crafting time.

Additional Information

Bitcoin Farm

Time per Coin x GPU

Bitcoin farm profit.PNG

The Bitcoin Farm will produce Bitcoin, at a rate of 1/(145000/(1+(GC-1)*0.041225)/3600) items/hour, where GC is the number of installed Graphics card. Production stops if there are no installed graphics cards, the power is off, or there are 3 bitcoin awaiting collection. (5 with Elite Hideout management skill). The hour/bitcoin rate of any given GC Number can be calculated with 145000/(1+(GC-1)*0.041225)/3600.

Below there are two charts and a table showing the relation between the number of graphics cards and the time needed (in hours) to produce a single bitcoin and the profit for a given number of graphics cards.

Given the assumption of Bitcoin to be around 206,000 RUB, the roubles per hour can be calculated (see the table below). If you assume a GC price of 280,000 RUB the payback time can be calculated as well (The upgrade costs for the Bitcoin farm are disregarded).

(Note: Pay-Back-Time in the table below is not assuming the cost of fuel for running the Bitcoin Farm. The cost of fuel can be calculated as cost per hour of Metal Fuel Tanks or Expeditionary Fuel Tanks. As a Metal Fuel Tank is about 90,000 RUB on Flea Market and 157,000 from Jaeger and is used in 22 hours 59 minutes (further increased by hideout management skill), cost per hour would be 3900 RUB. For Expeditionary Fuel Tank cost is around 110,000 RUB on Flea Market and is used in 14 hours 48 minutes with cost per hour of 7400 RUB. This means that this cost needs to be deducted from Roubles/hour assuming non-stop production and having no more than 3 Bitcoins uncollected and is increasing Pay-Back-Time by 13 to 21 days. Using other stations to craft items except Lavatory can further decrease the cost per hour of fuel.)

Earnings per every additional graphics card grow linearly. That means every graphics card besides the first brings the same amount of additional income which is around 5,000 RUB/day taking into account the prices listed above. It takes almost 56 days to make the same profit no matter the number of graphics cards, so the higher the number of graphics cards, the bigger the profit will be. In this context, if the wipe is more than 56 days away it is very important to upgrade the Bitcoin farm as soon as possible and get the maximum number of graphics cards afforded at any given time. Only if the wipe is sooner than 56 days is it better to leave 1 graphics card in the Bitcoin farm.
