idkwhatsrc's calculators[edit source]

I don't trust my ability to properly add a calculator, plus I haven't gotten official permission from the user, but idkwhatsrc(also idkwhatsrcing in-game, in rs forums and on youtube) has some awesome calculators.  Check them out, but please ask him first and give him credit somehow if you move them over.

Yaaaaaa no. The fundamental idea of a wiki is that no single person needs to be credited for their contributions. If he has the decency to provide calculators without needing his name slapped on it, then that'd be great. He has no monopoly on calculators and we don't need to give him such credit.

Livid Farm calc?[edit source]

With the lack of a Livid Farm calculator on here, I spent some time last night working on a spreadsheet to calculate what I need for all Livid Spells, and what experience I'll get from it.

I don't suppose that anyone is capable of making a calculator to do the same thing? Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 11:45, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

Easily possible with the form calc script. Could be as simple as (points needed)/(points per hour), etc. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 22:54, July 14, 2015 (UTC)

Grapevine calc[edit source]

There wasn't a calculator for this, but I thought about making a calculator for growing and harvesting grapevines, and whether it's more profitable to sell the god wine or super brew potions/flasks. Of course, it would have to consider prices for grapevine seeds, the five planks needed to build the frame and potions with different doses (price per dose and all that). I have virtually zero experience with making calculators, so if anyone else feels up to making one themselves be my guest. Jampolo 23:18, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

Interesting concept, added to the list Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 20:50, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Herblore/ Dose Cost calc issue?[edit source]

I've noticed this a few times and I think the flask dose cost, minus the flask cost, (Flask Value in the table) is bugged. For a number of potion types it's returning a negative value. Unless I'm misunderstanding the purpose of the column, this doesn't make any sense. I think the calculator is doing "(Potion Flask Price / 6) - Empty Flask Price". For cheap flasks this drives it under 0. I think it should be "(Potion Flask Price - Empty Flask Price) / 6". Again, if I'm fundamentally misunderstanding how the calculator is meant to work, please let me know, and let's see if there is a way to better explain the value returned.
