Is the raw material requirement rounded up or down? What if it is less than 3? Javiskefka 18:36, 21 December 2007 (EST)

Don't metal flasks have material size 1?--Another 06:28, 22 December 2007 (EST)
A lot of items have lower than 3 material values. Material values are always rounded up, with a minimum of 3, for the purpose of making items, but when smelting metal items, the exact value is used for calculating, how much metal it'll yield. At least that what I've understood of the matter. Noctis 08:03, 22 December 2007 (EST)
Testing indicates that values are rounded down, with a minimum of 1. So an object with a MATERIAL_SIZE of 4, like a shield, will require 1 bar.Fedor 03:31, 16 May 2008 (EDT)
