The code seems to be such that, finding an 'ultra-rare' is always 1% (for a roll of 1), regardless of forage skill. Finding a 'rare' is at a 5% chance for any forage skill >=25 (and increases with skill below that), so it's still a 5% chance at 90 forage (it triggers this if the roll is <= MIN(5, (skill+bonus)/5) and not the above) Finding an 'uncommon' is 25% chance for a skill >=75 (and increases with skill below that). (triggers if roll is <= MIN(25, (skill+bonus)/3) and not all of the above) Finding a common happens for all other rolls, provided the roll < skill+bonus. So if you were about to find a rare with the a sub 5 roll, regardless of whether your forage skill was 25 or 90, you'd still get the rare.
Lord knows how the mining code changes this. Also, you'd still want the skill of 75 if in fact a lot of the valuable foragey shits are not rare but 'uncommon' (keep in mind that these would be the sorts of things master forages find with 1 in 4 times), I don't think most of the cool shits are uncommon though?
qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
