OK, I know that you are able to manipulate an item's seed value in TQVault, but would there be a way to create a mod that would randomly generate a HUGE number of items, all with different seeds? I am asking this as to find out if its possible or not, before I try to undertake doing it myself (as I have a lot more to learn about the editor).
I figure that, considering how long the game has been out, its about time we started slowly compiling a list of the item seeds that give the best stats for a given item. For instance, most everyone wants a to find a Veteran's Prowler's Cuirass of the Glade, but what about finding one that "perfect stats"? Finding that one seed value that results in: (below are the highest values I've seen thus far)
+ 32% CtaP
+ 48% Elem. Resist
+ 24% pierce damage
+ 24% DA
+ 20% Damage Resistance
All on the same item. But, with 32767 different possibilties, this almost seems an impossible task, even though it is possible that multiple seeds will result in the same stats.
Or, the other idea would be to find out if there was a way to create an external program that would allow you to input the desired stats of an item you own/ load into the program, and it finds the correct seed for you. By breaking each affix down to its minimum and maximum stat values, would this even be possible? Or wold it require violating the EULA to reverse engineer the game engine to find out how to do it (I understand that this would take a considerable amount of programming knowledge)?
Even if I had to create a HUGE map, and have 32767 of the same item on the screen, would it be possible to have all 32767 items show up with its own seed? Possibly in numerical order? I have already spent 3 hours tonight generating random seeds, and this would drastically speed up the amount of time needed to find perfect item seeds. Then I'd be able to start making a list of MI's with all affix combinations/ blues/ purples.
Just interested on anyone else's thought's on this. I know most will consider it pointless, but it will give me something to contribute to the community, and something to do to pass the time until Grim Dawn comes out.
