With the oxygen algorithm.
I'm probably missing some small detail but sill - I'm stuck.
Anyone want's to help me with that?

How can we help if you do not tell us what the problem is?

Does it work in one direction but not in the opposite direction? That was my first problem with this type of algorithm. If it is something else, please describe what works and what not.

The other doors take time and so do hull breaches. Not sure how much time though.

I had to check it but yes, you are right. I think it should take some time but it should be faster than breaches.

Whiew :)
Think I've managed to replicate the oxygen mechanic.
I'm pretty sure that my algorithm is not the same as FTL has. (Because mine uses duct tape and some nails to work :mrgreen: )
But still I think it does the job.
Just need to balance it a bit, and during the next update I hope you will be satisfied by how it works. :D

But if anyone will be kind enough to draw his own oxygen algorithm - I would be very glad to try it out.

Don't ask how mine works (I'm too shamed to tell :? )

You do not have to tell how yours works, just post the relevant source code :D
Mine would look something like this (pseudocode / not tested):

Code: Select all

OxygenCell[][] oxygen = new OxygenCell[cells.length][cells[0].length];
for (int x = 0; x < cells.length; x++) {
    for (int y = 0; y < cells[x].length; y++) {
        oxygen[x][y] = new OxygenCell();
    }
}

for (int x = 0; x < cells.length; x++) {
    for (int y = 0; y < cells[x].length; y++) {
        int walls = 0;
        double target = cells[x][y].oxygen;

        if (y > 0 && !cells[x][y].wallUp) {
            target += cells[x][y - 1].oxygen;
            walls++;
        }
        if (y < cells[x].length - 1 && !cells[x][y].wallDown) {
            target += cells[x][y + 1].oxygen;
            walls++;
        }
        if (x > 0 && !cells[x][y].wallLeft) {
            target += cells[x - 1][y].oxygen;
            walls++;
        }
        if (y < cells.length - 1 && !cells[x][y].wallRight) {
            target += cells[x + 1][y].oxygen;
            walls++;
        }

        target /= walls + 1;
        oxygen[x][y].diff = target - cells[x][y].oxygen;
    }
}

for (int x = 0; x < cells.length; x++) {
    for (int y = 0; y < cells[x].length; y++) {
        if (oxygen[x][y].diff != 0) {
            if (y > 0 && !cells[x][y].wallUp) {
                oxygen[x][y].up = oxygen[x][y - 1].diff;
            }
            if (y < cells[x].length - 1 && !cells[x][y].wallDown) {
                oxygen[x][y].down = oxygen[x][y + 1].diff;
            }
            if (x > 0 && !cells[x][y].wallLeft) {
                oxygen[x][y].left = oxygen[x - 1][y].diff;
            }
            if (y < cells.length - 1 && !cells[x][y].wallRight) {
                oxygen[x][y].right = oxygen[x + 1][y].diff;
            }

            double factor = oxygen[x][y].up + oxygen[x][y].down + oxygen[x][y].left + oxygen[x][y].right / -oxygen[x][y].diff;
            oxygen[x][y].up /= factor;
            oxygen[x][y].down /= factor;
            oxygen[x][y].left /= factor;
            oxygen[x][y].right /= factor;
        }
    }
}

for (int x = 0; x < cells.length - 1; x++) {
    for (int y = 0; y < cells[x].length - 1; y++) {
        if (y < cells.length - 1) {
            double move = Math.copySign(Math.min(Math.abs(oxygen[x][y].down), Math.abs(oxygen[x][y + 1].up)), oxygen[x][y].down) / DISTRIBUTION_RATE;
            cells[x][y].oxygen -= move;
            cells[x][y + 1].oxygen += move;
        }
    }
}


EDIT: Added the DISTRIBUTION_RATE constant. It should be less than 1 and says how fast the oxygen is distributed. Because open space has an oxygen level of 0, a DISTRIBUTION_RATE of 0.5d means that the oxygen level of an adjacent cell is halved each update.

I don't know Java but I made an algo in Python, no idea how good it is but whatever, I tested it and seems to work alright. Just modify the constants to what feels good in your conditions. This basically assumes oxygen inside a ship goes from 0.0 to 100.0

Code: Select all

def distributeOxygen(roomA, roomB):
   rate = 40.0
   voidOxygen = -500.0
   minChange = 0.1
   minOxygen = 0.0
   difference = abs(roomA.oxygen - roomB.oxygen)
   if roomA.oxygen < roomB.oxygen:
      sign = -1
   else:
      sign = 1
   change = min(max(difference / rate, minChange), difference/2.0)
   roomA.oxygen -= sign*change
   roomB.oxygen += sign*change
   if roomA.isVoid():
      roomA.oxygen = voidOxygen
   elif roomA.oxygen < minOxygen:
      roomA.oxygen = minOxygen
   if roomB.isVoid():
      roomB.oxygen = voidOxygen
   elif roomB.oxygen < minOxygen:
      roomB.oxygen = minOxygen

Edit: Made a few improvements to the function, including support for when A has less oxygen than B :oops:

Don't forget that oxygen should also be replenished by all installed oxygen system.
And should be dispersed when there is no active O2 system :)

My main problem was caused by combination of 2 facts:
1. Oxygen is replenished every tick in each cell - by the amount gathered from all active O2 systems.
2. Every tick - adjacent room cells everage their o2 levels between them.

I was only able to solve this by changing the first fact - O2 is now replenished not every tick, but every 4th tick.

How much is replenished every tick? Is it more than the oxygen lost through the open doors?

I think the amount of replenished oxygen per cell should be divided by the amount of room cells. Bigger ships need more oxygen!

It's not open source. ;)
Plus I can handle the coding part,
I need help with art and sound.

The oxygen in the airlock is set to 0 every tick when the airlock is open.
Then every tick air of nearby cells is averaged between them, so the air is sucked out pretty fast :)

I think the amount of replenished oxygen per cell should be divided by the amount of room cells. Bigger ships need more oxygen!

This can lead to 0 oxygen replenishment on really big ships.
And on smaller ships it would be replenished really slow, but venting it out will still be fast, and that would be a disballance.

Well I'm not familiar with python, so that code doesn't help any bit :)
Can you draw a logic tree for your algorithm?
