Multi-part question each part depending on previous...
 
Looking to potentially write an alias to set specific parameters and initalize a #FORALL

skill "recipe <name> <GI> <TH> <NI> <TI> <HE> <SA> <WO>"
*herb list "ginseng|thyme|nightshade|tigerroot|hemlock|sage|wolfsbane"
*name "1|5|10|15|20|25|30|35|40|45|50"

example "recipe GI_1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0"|"recipe GI_5 5 0 0 0 0 0 0"|"recipe GI_10 10 0 0 0 0 0 0"...

I feel like nesting FORALL is not something I want to do as I want to try and have it do the Name list for each Herb list, and "test GI_1" to log results.

You can nest SWITCH commands.

#SW (test1a) {}

(test1b) {
#SW (test2a {}

(test2b) {}
}

(test1c) {}

If this is supposed to be a recipe book of sorts, why bother to include the 0 of ingredients not being used?
It seems like superfluous data and unnecessary work.
It CAN be done, but to what end?

I feel like I need more information to give you your desired results.

You had previously helped on the same subject a year or two back, but they changed some things and the old method was moot.

I was able to adapt the previous stuff (**sorta**) to work, just not how it was originally intended.

Code:

// Create recipe
$name=%prompt("", "Enter the name of the recipe.")
$recipe=%db(@RecipeResearch, $name)
$type=Recipe
$this=%db($recipe, $type)
#ADDKEY $this GI %prompt("0", "How many GINSENG are used in this recipe?")
#ADDKEY $this TH %prompt("0", "How many THYME are used in this recipe?")
#ADDKEY $this NI %prompt("0", "How many NIGHTSHADE are used in this recipe?")
#ADDKEY $this TI %prompt("0", "How many TIGERROOT are used in this recipe?")
#ADDKEY $this HE %prompt("0", "How many HEMLOCK are used in this recipe?")
#ADDKEY $this SA %prompt("0", "How many SAGE are used in this recipe?")
#ADDKEY $this WO %prompt("0", "How many WOLFSBANE are used in this recipe?")
#ADDKEY $recipe $type $this
#ADDKEY RecipeResearch $name $recipe

recipe $name $this.GI $this.TH $this.NI $this.TI $this.HE $this.SA $this.WO

// test sample, record results
test $name


https://tinyurl.com/y8dyedlq just copy/pasted the results to this.

the combination of herbs have a potential to +all stat but I wanted to know what each herb did on it's on and to what strength.
discovered the cap bonus increases with level.

So the game actually requires you to send a bunch of zeros when making a given recipe?

If not, I think i would be doing:

$gi=%prompt("0", "How many GINSENG are used in this recipe?")
#IF ($gi) {#ADDKEY $this GI $gi}

Otherwise, I'm still not sure what part of this you are actually having trouble with.

Yea its dumb for the extra 0's. As for what I want to do it's changed slightly... I have a pair of #C+ #C- to capture and send the test results to file,
I would like to potentially turn that into the database but it's not super imperative as I just did the copy pasted tinyurl above for each result...ugh

I don't think imperative uses an extra superlative.

Well, it seems like the stronger versions of the potion are the same exact recipe just in larger portions.

But it seems the effects do not scale linearly, leaving quite a few holes in your database.
Can you only increase potency by a factor of 5?
Do you care about more than the highest potency you can make at a given level?

Seems to me you need another key in your recipe database:

$pot=%db($this, Potency)
$power=%db($pot, @myLevel)

Then by referencing this, you would know what numbers to multiply the base recipe for at any given time.

No I can use any given amount between 0-max possible (which is based on level. my current is 101... )
**side note that it's not a simple equation, I have yet to figure it out. only that it increases by 1 every 6 levels.

I was only using a factor of 5 to try to see a decernable value for potency scale but haven't done the math on that yet.

If I used a GI_0 TH_24 NI_0 TI_40 HE_0 SA_0 WO_0 I get a concoction that is +12 for all stats except con +0 HP 55 CP 5

@hpoonis2010 Intelligence is not my stongpoint, neither is proper english... I am a high school drop out after all.

Ended up re-writing the original alias entirely as the mud changed things to invalidate the data I was trying to record from my previous thread concerning this topic.

new alias (and far from eligant)
Code:
//-- New testing method
$herbType = %1
$herbMin = %2
$herbMax = %3
$Factor = %4
$herbCount = $herbMin

#SWITCH ($herbType = GI) {#WHILE ($herbCount <= $herbMax) {$name = %concat($herbType,"_",$herbCount);#SENDRAW {recipe $name $herbCount 0 0 0 0 0 0};#WA 2000;test $name; $herbCount = ($herbCount + $Factor)}}
 ($herbType = TH) {#WHILE ($herbCount <= $herbMax) {$name = %concat($herbType,"_",$herbCount);#SENDRAW {recipe $name 0 $herbCount 0 0 0 0 0};#WA 2000;test $name; $herbCount = ($herbCount + $Factor)}}
 ($herbType = NI) {#WHILE ($herbCount <= $herbMax) {$name = %concat($herbType,"_",$herbCount);#SENDRAW {recipe $name 0 0 $herbCount 0 0 0 0};#WA 2000;test $name; $herbCount = ($herbCount + $Factor)}}
 ($herbType = TI) {#WHILE ($herbCount <= $herbMax) {$name = %concat($herbType,"_",$herbCount);#SENDRAW {recipe $name 0 0 0 $herbCount 0 0 0};#WA 2000;test $name; $herbCount = ($herbCount + $Factor)}}
 ($herbType = HE) {#WHILE ($herbCount <= $herbMax) {$name = %concat($herbType,"_",$herbCount);#SENDRAW {recipe $name 0 0 0 0 $herbCount 0 0};#WA 2000;test $name; $herbCount = ($herbCount + $Factor)}}
 ($herbType = SA) {#WHILE ($herbCount <= $herbMax) {$name = %concat($herbType,"_",$herbCount);#SENDRAW {recipe $name 0 0 0 0 0 $herbCount 0};#WA 2000;test $name; $herbCount = ($herbCount + $Factor)}}
 ($herbType = WO) {#WHILE ($herbCount <= $herbMax) {$name = %concat($herbType,"_",$herbCount);#SENDRAW {recipe $name 0 0 0 0 0 0 $herbCount};#WA 2000;test $name; $herbCount = ($herbCount + $Factor)}}
 
#IF ($herbCount >= $herbMax) {#SENDRAW {herbs}}
