Dudes. I love a good math argument as much as the next geek, but can we get a dev in here with an official answer, please?

Yup.

### Re: Combining hull options

Would be better addressed for the current discussion, such as whether the modifiers are additive or multiplicative.

Both probably apply.

It's additive if you give the hull a fresh coat of paint.

The manufactured composition of the hull would be multiplicative.

Correct.

Not even in the real world would that be the definition when dealing with percentages.

Manufacturing has additive processes that use layering to create products and subtractive processes where material is removed to create a product.

### Re: Combining hull options

The design system is full of holes and inconsistencies.

You can go on the assumption that the hull is the default value to be calculated from.

Additives like stealth and aerofins tend to specifically show the cost per tonne.
