  4. Skilliard added a post in a topic Black Desert Tools(Failstack Calculator) Has A Webapp Now! Also, Important Notice to Windows Store App Users   

    A lot of people voiced concerns about how it's stupid to use DUO armor to failstack past a certain amount, say 40 or 50. It's hard to mathetmatically determine when it's best to use TRI or TET armor, because there are factors that are hard to quantify.
    I could add in a "hackish" recommendation to use TRI 20 FS after the DUO switch threshold, TET 20 after the TRI threshhold, etc, but it wouldn't be determined by math...
     
    Any professional actuaries wanna help me out? Lmao

    AFAIk there isn't a difference in chance for enchanting green/blue armor vs good ol reblath.

    I Created A Free Windows App That Helps You Enchant Gear/Failstack Efficiently- More Features Coming Soon!
    EDIT: Webapp Version:
    weapons: http://deliddedtech.com/black-desert-failstack-calculator/
    accessories: http://deliddedtech.com/black-desert-accessory-failstack-calculator/
     
    Application is called Black Desert Tools:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/black-desert-tools/9nblggh4wq2q
    As of now, the app has 2 features:
    Fail stack probability checker
    The Fail stack probability checker tells you the probability that you will reach a given amount of failstacks without resetting to 0, based on the enchant level of gear you're using to failstack.
    Fail stack optimizer
    The fail stack optimizer determines the ideal amount of failstacks to use when enchanting an accessory or weapon. The amount of fail stacks recommended is based on a complex algorithm that involves the cost of the accessory you're enchanting(it's base price at +0), and the cost of obtaining failstacks via blackstones.
    Ultimately, it figures out the point at which generating more failstacks provides less value in terms of increased enchant success rate than the average cost of reaching that many fail stacks.
    The calculation is based on failstacking on +14 armor for low failstacks, then DUO armor for higher failstacks, and tells you when to use each.
     
    Factors to consider:
    the fail stack optimizer will never recommend more fail stacks than the cap for a given enchant(25 PRI, 35 DUO, etc)
    If an item is considered priceless to you in that it isn't available on the market(IE Ogre Ring), I'd recommend using the maximum failstacks for that level.
    Price of the accessory you enter should be what the accessory is worth at +0, not what its current worth is. The algorithm accounts for its true value when enchanted to the level before what you're going for.
    Future Planned Additions:
    Interactive map. Possibly have a node simulator, as well as the ability to mark the map with important points of interests you want to remember.
    FAQ:

    This graph is frequently referenced by the community and generally believed to be accurate, and is allegedly sourced from someone that data mined the client.
    The program is Written in C# using the UWP framework.
    EXE requires a lot more work to achieve the same quality user interface. UI elements such as buttons need to be coded by hand unless I use a framework such as QT.
    By distributing it as a UWP application on the Windows Store I can guarantee to users that it is virus free. Microsoft will not approve malware to their store. Most download sites like Sourceforge are filled with malware nowadays too, so distributing an exe file is difficult.
    If I made it as a standard C++ application, it would still be text based, which isn't very user friendly.
    I'm planning on porting the application to Android, so if you have an Android phone, you can use that instead
    I'll answer any questions in this topic as well as listen to any feedback!

    Black Desert Tools(Failstack Calculator) Has A Webapp Now! Also, Important Notice to Windows Store App Users
    Weapon Failstack Calculator
    Accessory Failstack Calculator
    After significant feedback from the community requesting that I port the app to something more accessible to the community, I spent all of last night porting it to a webapp version via Javascript.
    I realized how many people either dislike the Windows Store, don't use windows 10, or just don't want to download anything, so I figured I could do better.
    While porting the app, I actually noticed a pretty bad typo in my code that caused recommended failstacks to be much lower than they should. This affected the current windows store build as of 12/29.
    I immediately dropped what I was doing to fix the bug within the app, and submitted a fix to Microsoft. The fix should come out later today or tomorrow, and everyone's app will automatically update(unless you disabled it in your windows store settings). Once the app updates to 1.2.14 the math will be correct.
    For the next day or so, I recommend using the webapp version linked at the top, it uses the up-to-date math that is accurate.
    I sincerely apologize if the initial numbers caused anyone trouble. I can assure that they're much more accurate now. To assure everyone the math works now, I've done the following:
    Uploaded a video explaining the code here
    Created the webapp version via javascript, which uses the same exact math and creates the same results(as the new build), which users can see via the inspect element(f12 in chrome, scroll down below the html).
    Hopefully this encourages a lot more discussion, and perhaps other smart people that are good at math and coding can provide suggestions to further improve accuracy.
    I want to thank everyone for all constructive feedback, advice, and assistance you've all provided. As a new developer this is a huge learning experience and I enjoy doing my best to make something useful. You guys are an awesome community.
    To new users, basically the two links provided above help you calculate the ideal amount of failstacks to use when enchanting accessories or weapons, and how to go about failstacking

    The calculation assumes that you're failstacking on a piece of +14 armor with minimal repair fees such as reblath, and a piece of DUO throwaway armor.
    I'm aware that in some cases it can be slightly cheaper if you use junk accessories for the first 3-5 failstacks, and I'm considering implementing that option in a future patch.
    Factors to consider:
    the fail stack optimizer will never recommend more fail stacks than the cap for a given enchant(25 PRI, 35 DUO, etc)

    Hello all. It's been a while since I'm updated it because I was busy with college. Since I'm on break now, I've made solid progress on a HUGE update. You can expect the following in the next update:
    - Calculator now accounts for the ability to failstack off of DUO armor
    - Ability to determine optimal failstacks for enhancing weapons PRI through PEN.
    - Ability to determine, based on market prices, when it is most optimal to failstack off of accessories, +14 armor, and DUO armor. Tells you when to switch to each method based on current failstacks.
    I don't have an exact ETA yet, but I hope to have it out by the end of January. 
    edit: All of the difficult work on the new update is done. What remains is polishing, bug fixes, testing, etc. I hope to have the update submitted to Microsoft before the end of the year(in 4 days, lul).I'm not sure if there will be delays with them approving it due to the holidays.

    Work has begun on a new feature that helps you decide how many failstacks to use on PRI-PEN Weapons/Armor, also possibly the most effective way to build failstacks to said amount.
    Current status is that I've laid out an outline as to how the algorithm will tackle it, and laid out what variables are necessary. Hoping to get the majority of work done before I start another semester of college later this month.

    Goal for tomorrow is to get the UI functional(for that feature) and implement it with the code I have partially written.

  16. Skilliard added a post in a topic [Updated] In-Game accessibility to Pearl Shop Items   

    Jouska, let me emphasize that the people complaining are the vocal minority. I personally like the change as someone that wants to be able to earn cash shop stuff in game.
    With that said, I think a good compromise would be reducing the amount of cash shop items that can be sold per week from 5 to 3.

  17. Skilliard added a post in a topic 69.8% of Edan are FOR this change   

    So apparently your support or opposition to this change is based on if your guilds logo was changed? Shitty methodology.
    I'm for the changes(I think it makes the game more fair by enabling f2p players to earn crucial cash shop items), but my guild has a "no P2w" logo. I'm not gonna leave my guild over its logo, even if I disagree with it.
    I'm sure players on both sides feel the same way. I'm sure hardcore players aren't going to leave their guild just because their GM didn't want to bother updating their logo.

    Not a scientific poll. Those that are upset have flocked to the forums and are the vocal minority, whereas those that either don't care or like the change are busy playing the game

    Why does it matter? All the whales just spend their money on 3rd party sites that sell free scroll parties. Basically, they pay them hundreds of dollars to let them afk with a pet out in a memory fragment party, essentially transferring hundreds of millions of silver per hour.
    Wouldn't it be better if the money from whales went to Daum instead of hackers?

    Don't remove the 30% tax reduction. The taxes are way too high, it's pretty much the only reason that I bought the value pack. Without it, it isn't worth the buy.
    Just make it so other players can buy/sell the value pack on the marketplace so that players can earn it in game.

  22. Skilliard added a topic in Suggestions   

    Let Players List up to 3 "Value Packs" On the Marketplace Per Month
    The problem with the value pack is that it's absolutely crucial to be competitive in BDO. 30% more gold from marketplace sales, 10% faster exp gain, tons of inventory/weight space for longer grinding sessions. All of this means you're falling behind if you don't buy it.
    Now, I know some players are more worried about players are more worried about players getting unlimited silver via selling pearl store items. So I have a compromise. Let players sell up to 3 "value packs" on the marketplace a month. This way you don't make crazy amounts of silver via doing so, but you can still allow other players to earn the combo pack for free like in Korea.
    Thoughts?
