Hammers and Honeycombs

Recommended Posts

Do the bee boxes ever a have a chance to give back the honeycomb when broken with the hammer? I broke one open and only received honey and boards back. Does this mean I am stuck with them where I built them? If so... ouch!

They will give it back as of the next update. They currently give back floor(input/2), they will give back ceil(input/2), if that makes any sense to you

You'll round up instead of down the probabilities?

I think it means that a unit need not be considered a placed floor tile to be broken, but instead can be an entity or cell.

I hope thats a bad joke ^^'

Right now you get half the mats back.

Floor Rounds down,

Ceil(ing) Rounds up.

So if originaly an item took 7 it would have ALWAYS rounded down to 3. Now it will be 4.

Or for the honeycomb's case, 1 instead of 0.

As a mathematician, he means that the ceiling function will be used, as opposed to the floor function.

Ceil(1.999)=2 and Floor(1.999)=1. I hope that makes it very clear. It seems that using a hammer gives back an exact amount, rather than a probability. (I haven't made or used a hammer in game yet)

Edit: Scooped by a minute.

Yeah I was just trying to use words to make it make sense. I thought it was a rather good joke though.
