This is probably just me not sure how the script really works but..

Hmm, been having some trouble with my farming the last few days. Basicly, every day it consider the Upper Chamber in the pyramid to be the best option for both my Main and Multi! It has also been trying to send my main to The Orcish Frat House (Bombed back to the stone age) not realizing it is not available (as I instead have the Hippy Camp bombed).
It also decided to go with a +item outfit and a Hobo Monkey!

Best location is The Upper Chamber with the command line 'item drop,switch Hobo Monkey{Peeled Eyeballs};'. Expected value is 500. The best monster there is Iiti Kitty, who is worth 192 meat.
I thought going to the Giant Castle would give better yield but not according to the script atm.
Setting Upper Chamber as excempted from the list of allowed locations it instead recommend the 8-bit realm, again with +item outfit and the Hobo Monkey which is wierd since no monster in the 8-bit realm drop any meat.

Looking through the session logs of the last day, it seem to have some wierd communications with can_adv or something along those lines, especially based around it not realizing which faction I helped during the lvl12 quest.

The sessionlog for my Main say
> Considering Frat House: 
> Considering Frat House In Disguise: 
> can_adv reports that the area is unadventure-able.
> Considering The Orcish Frat House (Bombed Back to the Stone Age): 
> Considering Hippy Camp: 
> Considering Hippy Camp In Disguise: 
> Considering The Hippy Camp (Bombed Back to the Stone Age): 
> Considering The Obligatory Pirate's Cove:
With no mention of can_adv reporting either of the bombed places as unavailable. Doing a quick check in the gCLI however yield
> ashq import canadv.ash; print_html(can_adv($location[The Hippy Camp (Bombed back to the Stone Age)],false));


> ashq import canadv.ash; print_html(can_adv($location[The orcish frat house (Bombed back to the Stone Age)],false));

So at least can_adv recognize what is available and what is not.

Also, looking at the list where the script go through all the zones and search for the values of each item in the zone, several of the zones have no items. Sure, some zones have no items (such as the Throne Room) and naturally will not show up and some zones have already had their items parsed, but other zones like the 8-bit realm, the Barroom Brawl and the basement of the Giants castle have no items searched. I assume the script consider the zones worthless.


So the first comment is that I am not sure who is supporting this or even if it is being supported. I don't remember doing much and I can't recall anyone else showing interest. Harvest is an alternative but I don't recall the maintenance status of that.

In any event the basic structure of the script is sound, in that it is very data driven. You correctly noted canadv's involvement so one thing would be to verify that canadv is both correct in what it reports and that the format of the report has not changed. It may also be that it is using data that is not quite up to date in mafia.

One thing I do remember is that it makes its decisions assuming you will immediately sell everything that drops. So location that drops no meat may still be the best if the encounter rate, drop rate and mall sale value of an item is high enough.

I may get a chance to poke at this later this weekend and see if there is anything that is obviously in need of some tweaking, but no promises.

The script is more or less supported by me. At least I'm the manager of the Sourceforge page for the script :)
However I have little to no time for even logging in to KoL even less actually coding and as such it could probably live to get some loving.

I am working on getting supportive people to help maintain the scripts I am the only contributor to so if anyone want to help out with this script please let me know :)

I think I offered to try to help with this a while ago. I should probably actually run it again at some point. :)

Regarding the execution questions... a few simple checks, just to make sure... you are using the latest (r15830 or similar) daily build of mafia and your CanAdv is up to date, revision 59, right?


Noticing now that the script is not even considering the Sea. Or, well, not sure if it consider or not, need to check session log after a simulation to make sure. Before it would more or less always eat some sushi and spend ~150 turns in the sea. I guess sushi-prices and the mall-prices of the items that drop can explain that, but.. Not even going to McMillians for the 10 daily turns.

One thing I do remember is that it makes its decisions assuming you will immediately sell everything that drops. So location that drops no meat may still be the best if the encounter rate, drop rate and mall sale value of an item is high enough.

Well, yes. That is true. That is what I ment by saying the Giant's Castle would give better yield. Boosting +meat and with the monkey it can give me some 1400 meat/adv in pure meatdrop.
What I ment was that a zone that do have items, such as the pixels in the 8-bit realm, was not searched for. Maybe it already had those items cached somewhere and didn't need to re-search but, yeh..

Sorting locations by meat drops...

Best location is The Upper Chamber with the command line 'item drop,switch Hobo Monkey{Peeled Eyeballs};'. Expected value is 482. The best monster there is Iiti Kitty, who is worth 187 meat.

Regarding the execution questions... a few simple checks, just to make sure... you are using the latest (r15830 or similar) daily build of mafia and your CanAdv is up to date, revision 59, right?

I have the thingy (program, script, whatever) that automatically download the latest KolMafia daily build and I have can_adv on svn subscription so I hope it download the latest version! :D

Request 1 of 140 (Island: The Orcish Frat House (Bombed Back to the Stone Age)) in progress...
You can't get to that area.

Also, again it want to maximize for +item gear and use a +meat familiar when it have the jumpsuited hound dog available to it.
Could this be because I'm in aftercore after an Ed run?

Right. My time to code is very limited (even more so by second kid being born) and as such I'd like to know if anyone would want to help maintain this script. If yuo want to then please send me a message with your Sourceforge userID and I'll see if I can get it to work.


Active member
I can at least push my personal updates to fix the entirely broken modifier check and so forth into the script. :)

SF username is maymne.


Active member
I get the following.
Command: Commit
Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: Server sent unexpected return value (500 Internal Server Error) in response to
Error: POST request for '/p/winterbay-mafia/farm/code/!svn/me'

For the record, here is the proposed commit log:
Generated modifier checks need to be noted as Generated. Do so. This makes speculation actually work properly again.

If number of adventures aren't requested, recalculate the number of adventures AFTER EatDrink finishes, rather than before.


New member
Right. No idea why that didn't work. Try again, and if that doesn't work I'll just ignore all kind of security thoughts and just add everyone to the Admin group and see if that works :)


New member
Fair enough. I looked at bumcheekascend setup and have now done things the same way (i.e. everyone has developer access to all subprojects). I hope. It should then hopefully work now, but who knows :)


Active member
That seemed to work with r17. Thanks!

For people actually using this, the modifier fix should make the script actually kinda-useful again.
The adventure fix means that if you had 100 adventures after rollover and run the script, you won't have the script get another 200 adventures from ED and then adventure somewhere for 100 adventures, then go to the next best place for 100 more, then finish up with your last 100 adventures somewhere else. It will just adventure for 300 adventures at the best place rather than punishing you for trusting the script to consume well.

If you run into more problems, let me know and I'll look into it.


Active member
Done a few changes, but I think that the current problem with farm is that it doesn't have proper capitalization to work with mafia's new case sensitive checks. So I'll be trying to work those up today, if possible. That should help farm to go back to getting 2-4* the VoA and better maximizations.


This script always seems to farm Litl Kitties, for me, even in aftercore.

I've seen it choose the Castle and 8 bit realm as well as Kitties so I think the choice is because of your parameters and market values rather than a flaw in the script.


Active member
Yeah, I've had it do at least 4 different zones recently. I even had it do a leprechaun meat-farm once recently. But it's usually an item farming location.

My multi is generally running around in the sea. Although lately without eating sushi which is an interesting one...
