Does this give you the equations and such that are used for things like classes and attacking and what not?

This is the best they have:

'twas made by our German friend, Veritate. He's still working on some of the other stuff though.

You probably could come up with your own equation, to make damage a bit more unique (there are times I've played GS and an attack does the same damage three times in a row =O)

I used to write equations for fake games I used to make. Usually, they'd involve crazy equations (the equation for figuring out the possibility of running into a shiny with "n" Pokemon on the Pokeradar involves a ton of crazy stuff), so I'd recommend comming up with newer equations... and a random number to shake things up a bit more than they were in the original two Golden Suns.

Do you understand how funny it looks when...
Isaac's Sol Blade let out a howl! Megiddo!
[Buffermonster] takes 666 damage!
Isaac's Sol Blade let out a howl! Megiddo!
[Buffermonster] takes 666 damage!
Isaac's Sol Blade let out a howl! Megiddo!

Isaac's Sol Blade let out a howl! Megiddo!
[Buffermonster] takes 666 damage!
Isaac's Sol Blade let out a howl! Megiddo!
[Buffermonster] takes 666 damage!
And it's happened, except it didn't release 5 times in a row, only 3. XD

Very true, very true.

I think that in a GS3, we need to make use of the typing system (Water vs. Fire; Earth vs. Wind) better, for example, adding a slight randomly generated boost ranging from 1.1-1.5 or something if you use the same element as the user, for example, Ivan would have more power using Spark Plasma than Mia would.

Yeah.  That would make a lot of sense.  I still have a ways to go before I hit that point however.  That probably won't be integrated until I start putting classes in. xD

Or a better idea - make it so the element you have the highest elemental power for, that effect holds true. That means it would apply no matter what. Why would classes play a role? You're just using a stat (like how stats change when you unleash djinn) =/

Yeah, but I was talking about say Mia using Spark Plasma.  She wouldn't have that unless her class is changed (by Djinn placement) . . as far as I remember anyway.

True, true, but her stats would change with the class change. Let's say she had a lot of Jupes on her. She'd have more Jupiter power than Mercury, and she'd do more damage with Jupiter.

Basically, the game would check what's the highest power out of the four.

Oh I see.  I thought you were saying that they like had a natural affinity to certain elements so no matter what each person had an extra boost when using their element.

Fox: Aw.  I kind of want to suggest dressing up in a banana costume.  No wait, that's a bad idea.

Average Wind Seer: *angry gorilla noises that roughly translates to "Stay the [redacted] off my island and don't touch my [redacted] bananas"*
March 04, 2019, 03:06:07 AM
Fox: Gosh. This is like playing whack-a-mole! What's taking you so long with the bananas?! :D
February 28, 2019, 10:20:28 PM
Fox: And that other guy I thought for sure I saw a moment ago.... maybe he left again.
February 28, 2019, 10:16:29 PM
Fox: :O Wha-? I guess you didn't bring an army? If you plan on bringing a bunch, I would have suggested recruiting more people. Like me.
February 28, 2019, 09:57:15 PM
Average Wind Seer: I just reached the Island, but I'm planning on getting as many bananas as I ca- OH GOD!!! OH NO HE'S GOT ME!!! SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!! AAAAAAHHH!!! NO! NO! NOOOOOOOO-!! *angry gorilla noises are heard as audio fades to static*
February 28, 2019, 09:13:45 PM
Fox: Huh. I didn't know you like going on adventures, that sounds interesting. How many bananas are you bringing?
February 28, 2019, 02:32:28 AM
Average Wind Seer: a brilliant plan. I'll go get the bananas from that seemingly uninhabited island with a large sign with the letters "D.K." written on it
February 28, 2019, 02:19:23 AM
Fox: I have an idea. If it turns out they love bananas, we can get some more as bait to keep them here?
February 27, 2019, 03:00:14 AM
Average Wind Seer: They consumed so much of the banana that only the essence of the peel remained TT^TT
February 27, 2019, 02:17:50 AM
FoxYou don't see it in the trash can over there?  Maybe that was someone else's.  .... Wait, Essence of Banana Peel?
February 27, 2019, 12:06:56 AM
Average Wind Seer: nope, that's just Essence of Banana Peel that they left behind :(
February 26, 2019, 11:39:52 PM
Fox: That's unfortunate.  I think they left the peeling for you.  :/
February 23, 2019, 05:18:08 AM
Average Wind Seer: .... yes.... I was gonna eat that banana....
February 23, 2019, 02:47:39 AM
Fox: steal*
February 23, 2019, 02:47:31 AM
Fox: Did they still your banana?
February 22, 2019, 02:32:19 AM
Average Wind Seer: hecc my ba- oh snap there they go :/
February 21, 2019, 10:14:10 PM
Fox: Shh... Don't scare them away.
February 21, 2019, 07:20:30 AM
Average Wind Seer: shocking, isn't it
