Min-maxer toolkit - Character Builder & Damage Calculator
« on: January 03, 2011, 06:08:31 PM »
+43
This is the thread for my calculator toolkit providing useful insight about the game mechanics. I never bothered making a thread as it seemed to spread well enough even without it, but I think the time has now come for the thread to emerge.


Functionality

Character builder
Helps with designing your character. Allow trying out different builds and copying them in easy-to-read format for forum posts, irc spam etc.

Level experience
Displays experiences required for each level and time to reach that level at given generation at given xp/min rate and multiplier.

Weapon damage
Calculates potential weapon damages for given character stats, weapon and target armor. Can be used to evaluate relative epicness of each weapon against different armor levels


The toolkit can currently be found at http://infinitum.dyndns.org/crpg/calc.htm. It is hosted from my home server, please avoid DDoS.

If you have suggestions about new functionality, please make a post. I'm always looking for interesting stuff to code, so decent suggestions have a good chance to be implemented.


FAQ:

The site is down
If you get 404 or no response at all, post here so I notice it's really down.

I only get gray boxes
Try using a proper browser (read: not IE).

I can't save my characters / characters are lost after a while
Characters are saved in a cookie expiring in one year. Check your settings: allow cookies, don't delete them when closing browser.

Updated:

- Code rewritten for maintainability
- Prepared for post-patch, now I only need the new functions
- UI changed to be more consistent
- Graph added for damage calculator

Still found in the same place.

Thanks for the tools. I didn't know weight also affected melee.

I think there's abug in the weight/wpf calculator: Power Draw reduces reduces Archery wpf.

EDIT: NVM, figured out it's the PD of the bow you're using, not your skill...

Note that it's not updated to post-patch yet. Character WPF gain is broken as well as the wpf-weight calculator. I haven't been able to fish the new information out of chadz yet, will update as soon as I can.

You might want to look at my thread for the WPF numbers if you haven't gotten them from chadz already.

Mm, seems to be in line with my own research. Only got to 150wpf myself so far, so this adds to it nicely. I'll see what I can do.

I'm still having server trouble, calc is hosted on a backup solution. Can lead to occasional downtime etc. Working on it.

So this is updated for the latest version, yes?

Also, is there any way to implement an Archery damage calculator or will using the melee damage calculator bring in similar results?

Calculator is now updated with 0.210 WPP gain information (thanks Gafferjack). Also added a xp-time counter, shows how long it takes to reach given level at given gen and multiplier.

Weight-WPF Calculator is still non-functional, haven't managed to fish the information out of the devs.



Also, is there any way to implement an Archery damage calculator or will using the melee damage calculator bring in similar results?

Melee calculator won't give good results for ranged damage as far as I know. It is based on Urist's research on Warband damage mechanics, so I can't really tell if there would be a doable way to find out information about ranged damage too. I just implemented a web interface for it, blame the other guy!
