Thread: XML Averaging?

    XML Averaging?

    I am creating a new ruleset. I need an attribute (ranging from 1-100) to be averaged with the skill (ranging from 1-100) to get the Effective skill level.

    I can get the ratings into the sheet and using the d20 example, I see how to ADD different values together. How do I average them? What about the order of operations if I need to multiply and then add, etc?

    Any suggestions or clarification needed?

    I don't think there is any way to do that right now. I think they are planning in a future release to support decimals (floats), when this happens I believe you will be able to do what you are asking as long as you already know that number of numbers to be averaged.

    In the event anyone needed to average two numbers together, it took some finding but was fairly easy.

    I simply created a variable called averager, gave it a value of 2, added my two stats together and then divided by the averager variable.

    <source name="dexterity" op="+" />
    <source name="piloting" op="+" />
    <source name="averager" op="/" valuemap="0:2" />


    There is probably an easier way to do this as well, but the process of averaging is certainly possible.

    Excellent, I think I have use for this further down the road. Thanks for finding out how to do it.
