 Year 9 Day 291 6:57 Strange Sensor Grid Phenomena? Novar Kalar I've noticed some strange things on my screen as I seem to have more sensors than I actually do. In the following screenshot I am in a YT-510 with 8 sensors, take a look at the screenshot and try to figure out why this occurs. I am grateful for any explanation. (I will post more screenshots if need be as this seems to happen alot...at least for me.) Edited By: Novar Kalar on Year 9 Day 291 7:29 Year 9 Day 291 7:34 Strange Sensor Grid Phenomena? Azarin Isard According to this: http://rules.swcombine.com/?Scanning#Sensor_Power The diameter should be 11. Count it up, and it's 15 in the image. Are the rules dodgy, or does the YT-510 have more sensors than advertised? Edit: They should have 11, not 9. Thanks to the guy who pointed out I can't count to numbers greater than the amount of fingers I have :P .Edited By: Azarin Isard on Year 9 Day 291 7:48____________ Ezekiel 23:19-20 Year 9 Day 291 7:35 Strange Sensor Grid Phenomena? Rezva Ortrii Bresarr 510's have always had a 7 square range, not sure why. Year 9 Day 291 8:43 Strange Sensor Grid Phenomena? Novar Kalar It seems to be a flaw in the coding, because if you actually look at the formula for sensor power on a square, it states the following: "Power on a square = rounddown(Number of Sensors / (Distance + 1))" Fill in this formula with a ship with 8 sensors and a distance of 5 (the supposed maximum range) and you get the following sensor power: "Power on the square = rounddown(8/ (5 + 1))" = "Power on the square = rounddown(1.33) = 1" Which is correct; however, if you increase the distance to 7 (the actual range) you get the following sensor power: "Power on the square = rounddown(8/ (7 + 1))" = "Power on the square = rounddown(1) = 1" Make the distance 8 (which is greater than the actual range) and you get this: "Power on the square = rounddown(8/ (8 + 1))" = "Power on the square = rounddown(0.88) = 0" If this formula is used for coding, this means that the maximum range is ACTUALLY 7, not 5. On a different note, another abnormality in the screenshot is the fact that the sensor range is different on each of the two sides. Take a second look at the screenshot and you will notice that the right side extends farther down than the left, which (as far as I can tell) should not be.Edited By: Novar Kalar on Year 9 Day 291 8:48 Year 9 Day 291 9:55 Strange Sensor Grid Phenomena? Mikel von Bianchi It's a noted flaw in the coding that we are attempting to figure out the best way to proceed on. Not sure if Sin has decided what to do yet.____________ [19:48] .Zhao> Items know they're inside me
