Node Gacha

Node Gacha (named after the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound made by toy machines) aims to be a module providing different methods for calculating randomness in games. Randomness can include everything from enemy encounters to item drop rates, particularly useful for RPG's and Roguelikes.

Eventually we'll offer a few different systems, but for now we only support "roguelike".

npm install gacha

Roguelike

Purpose: Given a listing of items (or enemies) with variable drop rates, determine the odds of them being dropped on a particular level.

Diagram

The above diagram gives a visualization of how Roguelike works. Each item has an ideal level (center of curve), a spread (the radius of the curve), and a weight (makes it taller). After passing data through the roguelike function, a list of probabilities of each item spawning is provided on a per-level basis.

Code Sample

var gacha = require('gacha');
 
// items must be an object where each property contains level, weight, and spread.
var items = {
  "101": {
    "name": "Knife",
    "type": "weapon",
    "level": 1,
    "weight": 1.0,
    "spread": 1
  },
  "102": {
    "name": "Sword",
    "type": "weapon",
    "level": 2,
    "weight": 1.0,
    "spread": 2
  },
  "103": {
    "name": "Iron Buckler",
    "type": "shield",
    "level": 3,
    "weight": 3.0,
    "spread": 3
  },
  "104": {
    "name": "Potion",
    "type": "heal",
    "level": 3,
    "weight": 1.0,
    "spread": 2
  }
};
 
var equip = gacha.roguelike(items, function(item) {
  // Optional filter callback, defaults to `return true;`
  return item.type !== 'heal';
});
 
console.log(equip); // Shown below
 
// Which item should we spawn on level 3?
var lvl3 = equip[3];
var strata = Math.random() * lvl3.total;
var item = null;
 
for (var i = 0; i < lvl3.strata.length; i++) {
  if (strata <= lvl3.strata[i]) {
    var id = lvl3.lookup[i];
    item = items[id];
    break;
  }
}
 
console.log("Receiving item for level three:", item);
