changing artifact prices

I'm creating a mod that will make artifacts have more realistic prices.

Artifact prices can be changed quite easlily in the file: gamedata\config\misc\artefacts.ltx

I created a list in excel that showed the probability that the player will obtain a certain artifact, based on my playthough where I collected and kept every artifact I could find. I based the prices on these probablities, fine tuned by including a "usefulness" factor. Here's the value list that I came up with:

jellyfish 650
stone flower 700
stone blood 750
wrenched 800
gravi 1000
droplets 1050
meat chunk 1250
slime 1300
fireball 1300
sparkler 1650
slug 1800
thorn 2300
flash 3200
christal thorn 4850
goldfish 5200
night star 6250
micah 7300
Urchin 7500
soul 8300
battery 10500
spring 11500
shell 12500
kolobok 12600
crystal 12700
pellicle 20150
moonlight 20800
Mama's beads 23600

I'm interested on your thoughts about this list, like if a certain artifact is out of place. If anyone is interested I'll put the mod online for downloading.

Thanks!

There is this thing that some traders can buy artifacts for even lower price than its written in .ltx file or in artifact description.

read this about how the trader formulas work:

they will always sell high and buy low despite you changing the artifact prices
