How much time is reduced per plat when insta-finishing construction?

1 platinum per 3 minutes, I think.

Not sure about this game, but in other games it became much cheaper for longer builds, >= 7 day builds were the cheapest, bang per buck.
From my own existing builds:

4h43m = 283m = 58 Platinum = 1 platinum per 4.88 minutes
16h55m = 1015m = 186 Platinum = 1 platinum per 5.45 minutes
1d14h = 2280m = 336 Platinum = 1 platinum per 6.78 minutes

So it seems AB follows a similar pattern. The longer the build, the cheaper it gets to instantly finish.

That's correct DesTROYer74. It's not a flat conversion.

Do you know the algorithm that determines it though?

Hi G-M, I tried to contact you via support by submitting a ticket, but they didn't know how to contact you.
Are you able to check my message and get back to me? Thanks.

first hour is roughly 1+3.05*gold minutes
After the first hour is about 5.9 minutes / gold, this is true up to about 4hrs
too few data points after that to calculate

If we all posted the start of our upgrade time, and the cost to finish, it would be very easy to graph. I did the same in other games.
