## Deduced Minimal Visibility Value

Short version
Based on the below equation: (if I did not mess up the Math of course)
One should be able to approximate the minimal visibility value for a given forageable type.
(This only works for a character which Per*Exp value lies somewhere inside the [Vmin..Vmax] range for the given forageable type.
${\displaystyle Vmin(approximation)={\frac {Per*Exp}{Vratio*3+1}}}$

Where:

Vmin: minimum visibility value (deduced/approximated)
Vratio: (Vhits / Vtot)
- Vhits: number of hits where the item was visible.
- Vtot: number of total tries.

How:

One would move forward and backwards to a given forageable item (plenty of times), so that the item of interest moves inside and outside the characters sight.
While turfing if the item shows up[1], or not[0]. Vhits would be the number of times the item showed up, and Vtot would be the total tries.
- If one would get only ones's, or zero's, the characters Per*Exp value is (probably) outside the target range. (only session with mixed one's and zero's are of any use)
Because this Vmin probing depends on data from lots of tries ... its only recommended to try this in an automated way. (highly boring too I imagine if done manual)

Uncertainty:

I imagine there is a fair share of uncertainty involved here ... but putting that part into numbers falls a bit outside my abilities.

So ... Just in case:

### The Table

Forageable Per Exp Vratio (Vmin) (Signature/Source)
(example) 12 34 5/66 --.MvGulik. 14:32, 18 October 2018 (EDT)

The table cannot exceed further on page, need to click "further results" how to fix that?

Nwm - found solution.

Good to see you found the solution. (overlooked your message, as I kinda run out of steam after Silk Thread‎‎ (-_-)zZz) --.MvGulik. 14:12, 29 January 2019 (EST)

## Seasons

Spawn seasons (in a case we want to publish such info at wiki):

Table moved to: Tables/Seasons/Forageables (--.MvGulik. 12:45, 24 December 2019 (EST))

Where should this data be stored, in a forage properties? How should it be formatted? --(Not a cat 12 November 2019)

For starters I think a plain table like this is fine.
I'm not sure yet about the property part. Saving to a property only makes sense when that data is/needs to be used on other/multiple pages. I'll have to think about that again.
