0001484: Item MATERIAL_SIZE may be off by a factor of 150
maybe related to 000130

it seems that the bug for only needing one bar per item is related to the material size. because i tested with melting long swords (material size 4) i needed to melt around 40 swords to yield 1 bar: 4*40 = 160 -> bar material size is 150

so melting items now results in practically no bars at all. either the raws are wrong and need material size modified * 150 ... but i guess item weight will be to high than too, so either way something need to be modified in the code
bars, Equipment, material

i needed to melt around 40 swords to yield 1 sword

You meant 40 swords to yield 1 bar, right? Just making sure.

Also, adjusting the material size shouldn't affect weight -- I believe weight is only controlled by the weapon's SIZE.

More testing is definitely needed on this issue (and 0000130). Can anyone corroborate?

More melting oddness. I'd forgotten that toady had done crazy things to the material system. Another clue for the melt job crash.
2010-04-24 02:43   
well uhm yes 1 bar... but as you need just 1 bar for 1 sword anyway, it doesnt matter *coughs*

Melting imported metal objects seems to be working fine - I've been getting plenty of iron, silver, and copper bars from all of the weapons and armor I've salvaged from goblin sieges.

I couldn't get this to happen.
