    Pindleskin simulator

    SPF veterans might remember the old web-based simulator mentioned here.

    Since that one long since stopped working, I decided to try my hand at another version:

    http://spf.50webs.com/dropsim.htm

    It has a few kinks remaining (unique Oil Potion?) and doesn't distinguish class-specific items, but might be of interest. My regards to ATMA for probabilities. Comments welcome.

    I remember back in the day (1.09) I spent hours just trying to see if I could get a simulated piece of Griswold's set.

    I never did :hanky:

    That would be irrelevant, pindle always drops 2 items regardless of /players setting.

    I knew that. I was just testing to see if you knew that. And you did. So, bully for you.

    Re: Pindleskin simulator

    wow this is cool

    a suggestion to you, maybe filter out items that don't exist. I don't care if pindle trys to drop me a golden diamond bow.

    I am currently doing 200K pindle runs to see how crap he is at runes :p

    PS i LOVED that old sim, but had lost the link, it was also up somewhere else but lost in house keeping, did anyone else have the code for it? its much more fun to see at least a pic and some coloured writing

    Re: Pindleskin simulator

    That's a nice resource you have there - makes me want to go and do Ancient Tunnel runs even more! Every time I simulate a reasonable number of runs (statistically speaking) the only runes that come up seem to be Ios, with a Fal or Ko scattered around in there as well. Does Pindleskin have a better chance to drop Io than any other rune or something?

    Edit: Sorry - didn't realise I didn't have the "show low runes" button checked. Now there's pletny of Eld and Els.

    Re: Pindleskin simulator

    Thanks all. Made a few updates for Pindle (colors!) and added a version for Baal (NoDrop=0, non-quest). The previous version is here if desired.


    Filtering out the 3x and 2x durability drops is in the pipeline (will take some doing). The source code is included with each version if anyone wants to make their own alterations. :scratch:

    Re: Pindleskin simulator

    I have a question. Would anybody mind if I just used the simulator instead of actually running pindle? What I mean is I don't have a lot of time to spend doing mindless runs so if I just got a item pack and didn't simulated runs instead of actual runs, I would still only use/trade the items I actually (simulated) found.

    *runs and hides*

    Hey, why not :D

    I could even make you a perl based pindlebot that'll run the pindle simulator for you, saving you even more time!

    Re: Pindleskin simulator

    I started 250k, cycled to a mate's house (about half an hour bike ride), watched the football (hour and three quarters), hung around chatting for a bit, cycled back (another half an hour), and it was still on ~60k. I then proceeded to stop the damn thing, deciding that it wasn't worth it.

    Hey Psychic, you feel like making a drop simulator for the super chests in lower kurast??

    Re: Pindleskin simulator


    Haha, 250k in one go is definitely beyond most browsers' patience (the sim is currently more suited to ~500 at a time to avoid the "script busy" message), though I'm curious as to what qlvl filter and other settings you used? The Misc text area fills up fastest and starts to slow things down.

    Setting the Misc qlvl filter to 87 shows only higher runes and should keep things moving along. Perhaps if I made an offline version it would be better for larger simulations...


    For superchests, I'd thought about it. As the sim works right now I would need the probabilities of all its possible items per drop (unavailable in ATMA). Also, I'm not sure it could replicate the drop patterns mentioned in the LK thread unless the exact mechanics were known.

    W00t, got a Griffon's Eye on run #997.

    Damn, I've done thousands of real Pindle runs, and not one Griffon's Eye so far.
