Template:In category[edit source]

Template:In_category seems to be missing certain things. For example, on the Modding: Overview, the page Modding: Maps is not included even though it's in the Modding category.

PV article notes[edit source]

I think the PV article math is not quite correct, but I'm not sure how to update it. Mostly because I don't know how to make probability formulas. :) I just kind of math it together piece by piece. I'll admit I don't have a very good understanding of probabilities and I don't know how to make this into a true probability "distribution" that adds up to 100.

Was hoping you could help.

Perhaps the issue right now is that the PV article assumes a PV equation of [Penetration Roll] = 1d10 + PV? That's not quite right, as described in the Melee combat article. The dice roll in there is actually 1d10-2, and it has a chance to chain-roll if the maximum value (8) is rolled, adding another roll onto that. This has a few implications:

  • The chance of 5 penetrations is not 0 as currently indicated in the PV article. Theoretically you could have an infinite number of penetrations, the probability just approaches 0 and gets really small.
  • The other numbers seem close to what I calculated but not quite the same. Here's what I came up with and my notes. I don't know if the notes will make sense to you, but feel free to DM me if you wanna chat about it :P
Penetrate at least this many times Chance with vibro (PV == AV) Chance with sharp vibro (PV == (AV + 1))
1 99.2% 99.9%
2 47.9232% 70.9317%
3 8.6704% 21.8791%
4 0.3454% 2.0535%
5 0.0013% 0.0229%


My weird notes[edit source]



VIBRO - NORMAL (Assume 10 AV and 10 PV)
	99.2% - penetrate at least once
	51.2% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do second roll with 8 bonus
		93.6% - penetrate twice
		21.6% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do third roll with 6 bonus
			78.4% - penetrate 3 times
			 6.4% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do fourth roll with 4 bonus
			 	48.8% - penetrate 4 times
			 	 0.8% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do fifth roll with 2 bonus
			 	     22.1312% - penetrate 5 times
			 	      0.0512% - all three rolls made, get a chance to do 6th roll with 0 bonus
