Quantum Taco

Postby thacon » Tue Oct 12, 2010 1:16 pm

Since Pantsless and I both got three-tiered wedding cakes fairly quickly, perhaps it's not a random distribution of every food in the game. I figured I'd throw up my taco results to start a list.

Today's tacos:
1. Tasty Tart
2. Expired can of franks 'n' beans
3. Ghuol-ear kabob
4. Sea cucumber
5. Enchanted bean burrito
6. Toast
7. Three-tiered wedding cake

I didn't keep my results from yesterday and mafia doesn't track what they turned into.

This thing does the exact same thing as schrodinger's thermos.

1. Buy Ol' Scratch's Salad fork
2. Reduce HP below the salad fork threshhold (depends on how much resistance you have)
3. Use Ol' Scratch's Salad fork
4. select Quantum Taco from the list.
5. Try to eat it.
6. Note the use message tells you exactly what it was going to be.

Code: Select all
You stick the fork into the C.H.U.M. chum and raise it to your mouth.
    You lose 1,000 hit points. (hot damage)
Yeeeeow! Too hot! Too hot!


You don't gain fullness, you reveal what food you tried to eat. Repeat several hundred times to find all of the eligible foods. You don't even have to heal yourself afterwards!

I really just wanted to make the "throwing up" joke. But you're right, it's probably the same as the thermos.

I put the results of 100 trials here:

Wanna do an average adv/full for a taco?

I took RT's list of foods and put them into your planning spreadsheet to pull in Eleron's yields. Yay for collaboration.

Assuming every one of those foods are equally likely, the average adventure per fullness is ~3.3 or ~4.4 with milk.

Does that make sense? Shouldn't milk only take it up by one?

Wait, how does the fullness work? Do you only get the two full of the taco, or the full you would have gotten from the item? I *thought* the thermos/taco did the latter. Wiki agrees.

I was calculating it based on using a taco as a nightcap, so your stomach used is fixed at 2, but the bonus from milk can go up to 7. (Or rarely all the way up to 35 if you have that much got milk)

Adv/Full (nightcap) 3.30
Adv/Full (nightcap w/ unlimited Milk) 4.47
Adv/Full (nightcap w/ 15 Milk) 4.44
Adv/Full (empty stomach) 2.89
Adv/Full (empty stomach w/ 15 Milk) 3.89

What about when your nightcap taco turns into a 1-fullness food? There are a lot of those, so the actual adv/full is higher.

Good point, pantsless. I updated the spreadsheet and it bumped the yields up to 4 adv/full unmilked and 5.4 adv/full milked when used as a nightcap. (Standard disclaimer about me always being wrong applies)

Thanks to RT for the testing method. I was wondering if these could yield festive sausages and holiday cheese logs, so I used it. Answer is yes for sausages, at least, as I found after 267 trials. (Okay, technically 268, as one attempt yielded an insanely spicy burrito of some sort, but I forgot to note it down. Yes, go ahead and laugh at my poor data collection practices. :P) They can also yield Jarlsberg food, FWIW. Full list of items yielded is here: http://pastebin.com/3k8pHrM2

(ETA: I realize that the likelihood that no one really cares about this is high, but whatever, I am posting it anyway. :P)
