The tech tree shows the Research Price for cruiser DesMoines being 237,500. So I converted my doubloons at the special rate of 35:1 and attempted to get it. When I click on the icon in the tech tree it opens up to a port view and the research price shown is 278,000 leaving me shy of points. Why doesn't the price match what the tech tree indicates?

Did you research any prerequisite modules on the Buffalo?

You probably still need to research the T9 hull B option for the buffalo to unlock the ability to get to the des moines.

237,500 is the XP cost of the Des Moines alone. But to unlock the Des Moines, you need to research the 40,500 XP hull on the Buffalo first.

WG should change this to always reflect full research price.

I don't struggle with this if I'm to be honest, but we get far more of these type of threads then I expect, so it certainly be beneficial for some.
