In trader files the price that the trader charges you is worked out by the average of two values. I can understand why they did that because AFAIK, it was intended to be part of a feature that was implemented.

However my question is this. Why are the values 'wpn_groza = 1, 3;' to give a value of 2x base price ((1+3) / 2 = 2)?

Why isn't it just 'wpn_groza = 2, 2;' ?

Seems much more sensible. I mean, I know its hardly difficult maths, but I just don't see the point. Or am I missing something?

I don't know what's the point in this. I think there is none. I also don't know who started this and for what reason.

The only advantage I could think of is when you need odd values, like 6.5 - then you could put 10, 3 instead of 6.5, 6.5 which might look better and saves you three characters. :naughty:
