# Need a little math help with regards to enemy encounter rate.

I'm back, and I'm still terrible at math!

So in this particular area of my game, there are 5 different enemy troops that can be encountered. I want three of those troops to have a 30% chance of being encountered each, totaling 90%. Then for the other two troops, I want them to only be encountered 5% of the time each.

So, on the Encounters tab of the map properties... how exactly would I achieve this? What value should I assign to each of these five troops in order to achieve that 30%/30%/30%/5%/5% split that I want?

Assign the 30% troops the value 6 and the 5% troops the value 1.

so 30%/30%/30%/5%/5% -> 6/6/6/1/1

Here is brief explaination for what these numbers actually mean:

The probability for any given troop to appear equals " WEIGHT OF TROOP / TOTAL WEIGHT "
So in your case, 6+6+6+1+1 equals 20.

Then we can calculate:
6 / 20 = 0.3 -> 30%
1 / 20 = 0.05 -> 5%

Ladies and gentlepeeps, I'm working on a Chuck E Cheese horror game! Did you know that in the 80's, in the Pizza Time Theater, Helen Henny was a separate character who performed in a separate room called the Cabaret? She was one of the possible guest stars there, and she was a Hollywood star at the time. But this particular unit seems to have a dark secret...
