12:27:36 <by> how hard would it be to make the altars in sprint 1 distinct?
12:31:02 <dpeg_> by: distinct?
12:31:14 <by> no triple sif muna among the 11 altars
12:31:22 <TGWi> doesn't C do that for you?
12:31:30 <by> TGWi: have you played sprint?
12:31:32 <dpeg_> by: yes, that sounds like a bug.
12:31:37 <TGWi> I have
12:31:41 <TGWi> sprint 1, and I know what you're talking about
12:31:53 <by> ok, because that map uses 'C'
12:32:02 <TGWi> isn't there a character that places altars sequentially? I guess it isn't C
12:32:25 <dpeg_> B, I think
12:33:06 <by> but that wouldn't be good here, either
12:33:49 <dpeg_> by: what distribution do you want?
12:34:37 <by> I'd say 11 random distinct altars; not sure about temple god restriction
12:35:30 <dpeg_> that could be done either with lua lists or with SHUFFLEs
12:37:01 <by> shuffles would require Note: 0000015 letters, right? don't think sprint 1 has that many le
12:42:14 <dpeg_> by: you can do it with NSUBSTs...
12:42:52 <dpeg_> NSUBST: _ = 1:A / *:_ ; KFEAT: _ = altar of Zin ; repeat
12:44:01 <TGWi> do you get more letters available if you make the parts with the altars into s
12:44:19 <dpeg_> yes
12:44:41 <dpeg_> THat's another option, but it is a lot of work to SUBVAULTify a map after the
12:44:52 -!- Twinge has quit [Ping timeout: 276 seconds]
12:45:05 <by> dpeg_: that would result in an even distribution of all listed gods?
12:45:16 <dpeg_> by: yes
12:47:54 <by> should it be A = altar of Zin ?
12:48:05 <by> (trying to understand NSUBST)
12:49:00 <dpeg_> by: NSUBST: _ = 1:A / *:_ takes all _ symbols in the map and turns exactly on
e into an A (this assumes that A is not used elsewhere).
12:49:24 <dpeg_> All the rest stay _ symbols, so you can keep going with the two NSUBST / KFEA
12:49:51 <by> and what becomes of the As?
12:50:14 <dpeg_> just a moment
12:51:08 <dpeg_> KFEAT: A = altar_zin it seems to be
12:51:26 <by> but then this would guarantee a Zin altar
12:51:37 <dpeg_> ah, I see where you are coming from
12:51:45 <TGWi> put four or five dummy altars behind some permarock somewhere
12:51:52 <by> ugh
12:51:56 <TGWi> :\
12:52:05 <TGWi> I'd just make a subvault
12:52:15 <TGWi> s/just //
12:52:23 <dpeg_> by: then it's best to use _ on the map, and at the very end of the map (when
letters are free again) do an NSUBST, which turns those many _ into one A, one B etc.
12:52:48 <by> ah, the letters can be reused? sounds good
12:52:52 <dpeg_> and then a SHUFFLE: ABCDE...Z (more letters than altars here) and the assign
