Materials[edit source]

While, obvious to most players, it would still be useful to add a "bars required" section or "materials required" section for each item.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 06:36, June 12, 2013‎.

This calculator is broken[edit source]

This calculator is broken. It does not show the xp and doesn't correctly display # of actions. 17:52, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

I believe I fixed it. Care to give it another test? IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 18:01, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Calculator still broken[edit source]

Calculator seems to take amount of xp from wrong skill, I typed my alts name into it and it took my construction xp as smithing xp (tried to calculate how much till 89 smithing, but as my construction is bigger it showed that I don't need to do anything)  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 13:01, 12 April 2017.

I checked the templates and modules that are used in this calculator, but I couldn't find anything, Smithing is mentioned as the skill for this calculator. However since all stats are retrieved from the hiscores, you have to consider the fact that your level needs to be over 15 to be listed. Other than that I don't know what could be wrong.

I just tested it with the RSN of someone on my friend list and it appears that it indeed gets the Construction level instead of Smithing... Hmm... Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:33, April 12, 2017 (UTC)
Fixed it :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:39, April 12, 2017 (UTC)

Ordering bars by cost[edit source]

I've noticed that when ordering the bars by cost or by profit, they order by what the first character is not what the actual value is. So 20000 is considered less than 3000 for example Stormk (talk) 05:35, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

price calculator sorting is still broken 80 being higher than 119 when you sort by profitperexp etc and need more results rows added because once you sort it doesent bring back any thing that falls off the table [1] [2] The Real Vampired1988 (talk) 18:12, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Hey, these two sections are fundamentally the same issue - Module:Skill calc isn't adding the sort overrides required. I've taken a look but I really don't know my way around it, so I've let the people who do know. Cheers Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 23:08, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
Nevermind, I found a better fix and it seems to be working - let me know if you see any other issues with this or any other skill calculators. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 23:22, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
thats working now when you sor by profit things you cant do are sorted into the top rows `edited to fix signature didnt realizer the wiki had logged me out` The Real Vampired1988 (talk) 16:27, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
what i mean y this is if you search say from lvl 50 -80 and you are say level 65 or you use that a a starting point it will put skills you cant do yet (enriched alloy and all the 99s( in the mix of the results as if its still calculating them but not displaying numbers because you cant do them yet then if you sort by profit or cost or sell cost it will sort them into the sorted mix instead of leaving them at the bottom of the table because your not high enough level to do themThe Real Vampired1988 (talk) 16:56, 25 August 2019 (UTC)
I set it so that things you can't do (red and yellow backgrounds) are sorted to the bottom. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:27, 25 August 2019 (UTC)

cragting multipules isnt calculated properly[edit source]

crafting nails and arroheads and bolt tips any pretty much everything that crafts more than one per bar is calculating one item per bar not the multipules The Real Vampired1988 (talk) 09:23, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

Should have been fixed a week or two ago Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 18:29, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

missing gold and silver[edit source]

the calculator is missing gold and silver in the smelting tab The Real Vampired1988 (talk) 20:35, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, they have been added Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 18:29, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Calculator Miscalculating?[edit source]

Calculator appears to underestimate the number of items to be smithed to meet the XP requrements. I.e. if you need 80,000 xp to advance to the next level you could smith 10 Necronium Gauntlets +4 from bars (at 8,000 XP generaged from each gauntlet set), however, the calculator suggests you smith 5. Someone should look to see if the xp estimates are off or if the code is broken. Thank you. (Wrenlett (talk) 01:08, 3 November 2019 (UTC))

Oof great catch, the custom xo boost was defaulting to 100% (double xp basically) instead of 0. Fixed now on all smithing calculators Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 18:44, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

"Smithing needed to reach a goal" only shows rates[edit source]

Essentially the title.

For the past few days, the "Smithing needed to reach a goal" calculator only shows bars or items per hour (the same as the "Smithing rates" calculator), with no calculation of how many resources are needed for the desired goal.

There may be a setting wrong on my end, but I know I've used the "Smithing needed to reach a goal" one successfully in the past.

Make sure that your target xp/level is higher than your current xp/level, if this is not the case the calculator reverts to a rate calculator. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 07:04, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Calculator Isn't Working[edit source]

It doesn't load at all. Other Java calculators work fine, so it appears to be this one. 2600:1700:4930:7400:28A0:22BD:3BBF:1AAE 18:01, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

It seems to load fine for me. Can you check if it's throwing any errors in the browser console? I assume the whole calculator is not loading and not just the results? Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 18:12, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
