Smelting bug (with steel)

Post by Legend » Thu Mar 02, 2017 6:11 pm

Hello, it seems to me that there is a bug while you are smithing steel. I was smelting steel in packs of 60, and more than once I got 5 or less steel bars out of the whole lot. Now I understand if you fail it you lose all your bars but that's not what I'm talking about.

But the odds of that happening are EXTREMELY low, and to happen more consistently then having 20+. Makes me believe it's a bug.

Just thought of this now. But I guess if it stops the smelting after the first bar you failed those numbers would make sense.

Was this post removed? or did the forums just bug, ill repost it since im not sure but,

forums did not bug, there are rules in place so that first time posters do not fill the boards with spam. posts need to be approved. i have approved and removed you from the group so all of your posts come through

In regards to the smithing of steel, the process rate is 60% + loot chance bonus (skill stat + looting skill + item bonus + buff bonus).

The code is fairly simplistic in this are and very tested, so I will need an example.

If you have a concrete example please let me know the time (and better yet, say something in the chat so I can find it in the logs easier) and I can look into it.

Alright ill make a small video or something, since smelting 5 steel ores always seems to give 3, and thats with 6-7 inventories worth of it. So once i get some footage of it ill post it here

Video is not necessary. just say something in chat when it happens . I can then search the log for what you tell me you said.

If you move and interrupt the smelling process, you lose the ingredients. Same goes for gathering tradeskills(lumberjack IMG, foraging, etc.) or finishing ones(carpentry, alchemy, etc.)

Ill say something if it ever happens to me again, but.. doesnt seem like its going too haha, sorry again

No worries. I would rather have a false bug report than someone not report one at all :p

P.s. when we were talking the other day...
I was wrong... no bug. Steel requires level 16 and mining skill level 11:
