Hi everyone,

I'm just trying to find out a specific detail about YEP's Extra Enemy Drops plugin.

Specifically, when using a conditional item drop (using <Conditional Item X Drop>), how does the percentage you nominate after your condition interact with the percentage specified outside of the conditional drop on the SAME item?

For instance, if I'm doing something like this:

<Enemy Drops>
Item 5: 50%
</Enemy Drops>
<Conditional Item 5 Drop>
item 5 === 0: +50%
</Conditional Item 5 Drop>

How is that going to impact on the original 50% drop rate for Item 5 under <Enemy Drops> if the condition is fulfilled?

Does it add 50% of 50% (meaning it adds 25%?), or does add these two percentages together to create a 100% drop rate?

Or, does one overwrite the other?

I think "50%" and "+50%" are written the intended way so i think you can take them at face value.

So:

50% of 100%

And

+50% to 50%

I could be wrong, but this is how I interpret it. I use the plugin so maybe my project is wrong but thats what i have

Unless someone has a definitive answer to your question, you could always just try it out.

Test it, lets say 10 times. If its 100%, you will get the item every time.
If the item fails to drop even once, it cannot be 100%, which means it likely is 75%.

My hunch is however that it is indeed 75% like @Jenova said, since:
50% of 50% = 25%
25% + 50% = 75%

Recent threads, and my very poor algorithm for my minimap plugin have made me face the fact that I need to review algorithms and such.

Going through Cracking the Coding Interview now. I am so excited.

I've seen a reference to a Community Lighting plugin for MZ, but cannot find it. Is it still in beta?

Todo:
Add fog of war
Add enemy indicators
Make window draggable
Optimise map drawing algorithm (5 seconds to load the map you see, so it's a... poo-poo algorithm)

Any suggestions? :kaoblush:
