Interesting idea but to properly execute it you'd have to save-off the last level someone gained a merit at.

As this is coded, it increases the chances of merit gained for every level earned. Thus all crews will hit a level where they will always gain mertits.

I decided to post this here so that the coder of this would have access to Frizz's comments. It sounds like and I hadn't thought about this either, that the last level it gained a merit would need to be saved somehow so that highlevel crews didn't just auto gain merits. This is why Frizz needs to approve the code is to keep us from breaking even more things. Embarassed

I already coded this, but I'm waiting for Vanoi to look at it.

I'm not an expert on this and I kinda wish that Frizz would go a bit more in depth so that a newbie like me could understand.

A simple interpretation of what frizz said is as follows..

Right now, using your code, I'd assume that it's written like this: a lvl 8 crew has +5% chance to gain a merit, lvl 9 crew has +10%, etc. until you get to the point where at lvl 26 the crew has +95% chance to get a merit, and after that you will get 3 merits no matter what because they'll have +100% chance to gain a merit.

Frizz doesn't want crews capped at lvl 29 with the worst luck in the world.

So instead, using your idea, say a crew gains a merit at lvl 13. You'd have to reset the +x% value that you've put onto the crew, so that at lvl 14 it's only a +5% chance to gain a merit again, up until you get your second merit, where the counter would have to reset again.

Hopefully this makes sense..

Means the change as such is approved but code itself needs some additional work. I also suggested some major tweaks yesterday - nothing time-consuming, just a 3-4 more lines of code need to be added - so if Lark fixes it by Friday we have a good chance of seeing it implemented this week. Pending final approval by Frizz of course.

Yeah he didn't like the code.

As soon as it's fixed there will be a re-vote & it will be put to Frizz once more.

You saying that we will have to revote over the code change that makes the code actually do the thing it advertised? RRRED TAPE WARNING!
