 Year 8 Day 96 6:30 Prospecting Time Equation Jaret Byar Time Taken for Prospecting = {[( 24 / (Total Sensors/(120 - NPC))0.1) - LOG(Comp + 2)((Comp + NPC + 1) * Total Sensors)] / LOG10(Speed + 1)} / 1.2 So we divide most of the equation by "LOG10(Speed + 1)", which if Speed skill is 0 - equals 0. And we know we can't divide by 0. So if someone has Speed of 0 he cannot prospect??? He can and it takes approx. 12 hours. But is it determined by this equation? Can any one solve it, line by line, using Comp.Ops:0 and Speed:0 , please. P.S. I tried and divided the equation in 3 parts: ( 24 / (Total Sensors/(120 - NPC))0.1) LOG(Comp + 2)((Comp + NPC + 1) * Total Sensors) LOG10(Speed + 1) The third part always gives '0' with Speed skill of '0' and the equation fails. So are we using some secret rules here?____________Governor of Torina System. Founding father of the Red Star Alliance. Mandalorian veteran. Year 8 Day 96 9:03 Prospecting Time Equation Tyr DeMeer there is a +1 to speed in the equation, thus it will never be 0____________ Year 8 Day 96 9:24 Prospecting Time Equation Togan Jano Actually Tyr, lg(1) = 0 ... ____________ Year 8 Day 96 12:21 Prospecting Time Equation Jaret Byar Thanks, Togan! Yes, "lg(1) = 0" and "equation = crap". So what equation are we realy using? Can someone check the code? Or tell us that we suck at math and show us how to use it.____________Governor of Torina System. Founding father of the Red Star Alliance. Mandalorian veteran. Year 8 Day 96 13:31 Prospecting Time Equation Alister Jacobs Where: * NPC: Total NPC working helping with the Prospecting * Total Sensors: Sensors of Vehicle or Item scanning * Comp Op: Computer Operation Skill of scanner * Speed: Speed of Vehicle or PC ^ Not PC speed skill, but vehicle speed. Year 8 Day 96 13:53 Prospecting Time Equation Xavze Zavan In practice the speed of the vehicle has no effect whatsoever.Just comp ops and the # of NPCed vehicles(note:FKs and GHs can be mixed together for more sensors)____________How would you like to pay income tax EVERY month? Year 8 Day 97 2:12 Prospecting Time Equation Riax Tardes Speed skill? Are you prospecting on foot? Is that even possible? Year 8 Day 97 2:35 Prospecting Time Equation Hexx Harpy The NPC part is proudly advertised in the equation, but has no relevance in practice because it is not implemented. In principle, the equation could be forced into an invalid result (division by zero), but it is only applied with prospecting vehicles; they are the only ones where the "Prospect" option appears if "Actions" is clicked. Prospecting vehicles always have sensors > 0 and speed > 0, so the basically trickable equation always gets filtered data to keep it solvable.____________- mobilis in mobili - Year 8 Day 97 10:18 Prospecting Time Equation Riax Tardes If you can't possibly input a zero value, you don't need to fix the equation to hanle it. Year 8 Day 97 11:05 Prospecting Time Equation Jaret Byar The speed of the vehicle, you say. That makes perfect sense. Even if a ship is equiped with sensors it will still be over 6 hours. So, the equation is very good!____________Governor of Torina System. Founding father of the Red Star Alliance. Mandalorian veteran. Year 8 Day 97 12:26 Prospecting Time Equation Xavze Zavan The NPC part is implemented.It is NPCing as you do with a squad of fighters.It is possible to prospect with up to 12 FKs,GHs or a combo of the 2____________How would you like to pay income tax EVERY month?
