    I could try creating a picture. Does anyone know the optimal size of a sigpic?

    Also what do you mean by an in-game calculator world? For advertising? There might be something that I, accompanied with a few other builders can do about that.

    A world with some info about farmables, providers, etc.. Have it advertise the calculator website too. Send SBs from the world, to let people know the calculators exist.

    I own the white door lock in CALCULATOR and the world lock in CALCULATE. Another world name could work.

    I'll get to designing it tomorrow, if I have time. SB's might be problematic though, as I'm trying to save my gems. I'll try my best!

    Don't worry about building or SBing yet, but if you have design ideas, that would be awesome.

    Sorry, won't start monitoring the chands drop today. Working on a script that would calculate the drops for me from a text file. Will post it here once done, maybe someone will decide to use it too.

    EDIT: It's done. Script will be in spoiler. Not putting the program itself here to not get blamed for trying to steal save.dat or anything. It's written in c++. The program will calculate the gems drop rate, seeds dropped and blocks dropped as well as blocks broken. Supports up to 25 gems dropped.

    Wow, you're going to count the frequency of getting each amount of gems? That would be sooo helpful!

    It's great to see the code, but I'm not sure I need it. As a tip for you, I recommend you use an array for the aX variables, then you can loop through it instead of repeating yourself.

    I did what I could at my basic school level. Will definitely help me with calculating the drops.

    I prefer the data split into amount of gems from each block. Any data is still helpful, though.

    "Data split into amount of gems from each block"
    So, like:
    1 gem - x
    2 gems - y
    3 gems - z
    Etc.

    Like that? And I could make a such code to count gem/block/seed drops tho I don't have any trees to harvest

    I have a level 5 blue and yellow ancestral, level 5 is basically 5x the bonus of level 1. It may be hard to test the yellow ancestral because I have a subscription active that also gives me random double exp.

    Also there are some food buffs for farming, such as Arroz Con Pollo that has a 10% chance to drop an extra gem when you break a block (I think).

    I am appreciating this so much. If together we can record this for about 5000 blocks for each of 5 different rarities, I reckon we might be able to determine exactly how gems are dropped. It might seem like a lot, but it will be excellent to finally understand gem drops.

    I finish exams next week, then I'll have a 2-month break. Hopefully that means we can revive this.

    Sure. I have school+work on Monday to Friday so that's when I'm busy the most and unable to break a lot. On weekends I can do a bit more work. What would be the other rarities or blocks?

    Anyway, I want to revive them, because they're fairly outdated. However, I don't have much time to work on them, and it's a really big job.

    I'm seeking help to revive the calculators. I don't just mean coding help. I need help finding formulas (especially for providers), help with advertising, help coming up with ideas.

    I only need a bit of coding help. I'll make a GitHub repo, I think. Mainly, frontend web development would be helpful. I suck at CSS.

    Please, read the task list below and comment how you think you can help. I'll update this thread with more specifics soon.




    CURRENT TASK LIST

    - Find exact formulas:
    *Seed falling from tree
    *Gem drop formulas
    *Blue/red/yellow ances activation rates
    *Buddy blockhead activation rate
    *Guild potion
    *All provider drops
    *Role quest levels and experience
    *Hair dye, eye drops, contact lens RGB colour impact

    - Document all data in a huge database
    *Including all data in old forum threads

    - Finish item info database
    *Need max tree drops and rarity
    *Already has all spliceable items until 2018 Easter

    - Advertise to players
    *Signature pictures
    *In-game calculator world

    - Develop a website
    *Frontend that optimises to all devices
    *Hosting a webserver and backend

    - Test
    *Bugs
    *Accuracy
    *Device support



    I don't really play much anymore, but credits to you for most of my guides since I used your calculators alot. All the best dude, contact me if u need suggestions on stuff to add.
    IGN is Ezereal now. Feel free to add me in game Also check out my new Art Instagram growtopia account here : https://www.instagram.com/ezerealgt/...d=qpen3zu2x9np
