Talk:Area drops

New charts, template updates

  • I finally got around to compiling a list of common area drops from the tables in the Perfect Bible. These tables document stuff like photons, recovery items, ores, gemstones and alloys. Up next will be weapon board drops. I'm not certain if I'll include them in the current tables or if I'll make separate tables for them like the PB does. But, I'll decide on that later. One thing I'd like to point out is that these tables have given me an idea of how we can handle inserting certain synthesis materials in our drop chart templates. In the case of the ores, what I've done with Template:Metrolinear area and Template:Il Cabo area is include a range of ores to begin each line while only listing the highest ranking ore for each tier. Basically, as tiers go up and new ores are added to the drops, the highest ranking one will be named while all of the previous ones will be listed in a range that will link back to the ores table. (The reason that three ores are listed at the LV100+ range is because all three of those become available at the same time.) I've done a similar thing with the alloys and gemstones, except... there's not a good way to separate the gemstones when they split up at 10★. There are the ones that work well with Im-photons and others that work well with El-photons. If they didn't split like that, I'd lump lower-ranking gemstones together like I did with the ores and only name the highest-ranking one. So, what I've done is name only the highest ranking material as it appears. The reader will have to assume that the lower-ranked materials drop with the one listed. An alternative to this would be to list all of the alloys, etc., but instead of putting each on its own line, do two per line, separated by commas. All of these names are short enough that we shouldn't have any issues with table stretching. So, questions or comments? - EspioKaos 00:01, 11 March 2008 (CDT)
  • Slight alteration. I made Template:Training Facility area a little earlier, but instead of the above-mention method of listing ores, I've combined all drops in one line that displays their range. This helps save a little space. On the gemstones and alloys, I've opted to list them all, but separated by commas with two items per line. Hopefully this method won't look too bad at minimum resolution in a chart that goes up to S2 difficulty. I'll test that out a little later. Anyway, any thoughts or questions? If not, I'm thinking of rolling out with this new style soon. - EspioKaos 11:03, 12 March 2008 (CDT)
