As some of you know, I have a character which will be involved in salvage and possibly mining. However, these kinds of professions have varying pay and a factor of chance in them. After talking to Wes, we've decided that I should try and make a sort of table system for determining the types of objects and materials that Toshiro, and perhaps other miners and salvagers after him, will find, and then submit it to Wes for approval. Once this is set up, I will endeavor to make either a die roll system, or more likely, an easy to use Visual Basic program(with a sort of code system so moderators can confirm that no one is lying about their results) to calculate the tables. A similar system, if needed, might be applicable for determining pirate booty. What I need is the knowledge of the forum of the technologies and the natural minerals used in the RP, and a ranking from least to most valuable. Also, I haven't decided how the calculations will be made yet, so the odds of finding them would also be good, but are not necessary. Wes seems to be advocating a slightly simpler system, where I've envisioned a little bit more self torture. Ideas on how this is to be calculated are also welcome. I'm willing to do research, don't mistake this request for laziness, but I don't know all the parts Toshiro or salvagers may encounter, nor am I knowledgable on the natural materials one may find in mining, and what they are worth in the time of the SA RP. (I believe diamond can be manufactured, for example, and isn't near as expensive in the SA RP as it is IRL for example.) I don't guarantee that a version for pirates will be made, but if you feel a similar booty list is needed for raiding vessels, feel free to contribute that as well, and I'll see what I can manage. I'll be working on the lists as well, it's simply too late at the moment. (2:00AM) Thanks in Advance!
