[Official Guide] LSRP Savings calculator v2.1b [26JULY]

Post by Mmartin » Thu Mar 29, 2012 1:26 pm

LSRP Savings Calculator v2.1c

Hello.
So, I saw THIS THREAD and it's savings calculator and I decided to improve it a bit. This thread is not about savings, it's just improved version of the calculator, for savings thread, CLICK HERE

URL: —

What is better on your calculator?
This calculator can show you how much hours/paydays do you have to wait for exact amount of money. Also, it will calculate "checkpoints" to this amount. So, for example, you have $100.000 in your savings and you want to get $20.000.000. It'll calculate exact name of paydays and days you have to wait to get $20.000.000 and also how many paydays or days do you have to wait for each checkpoint (step - $100.000). For example:

I think that everyone got the point.
Used technologies: PHP 5.
Formula for savings: log(target/now)/log(1+0.005)
Source code: PM me if you want to see source code.

Version 2.1 Changelog:
Spoiler: show
Bugs Fixed:
  • Rounding numbers (When you setted current amount e.g $125.000, checkpoints were $215.000, $315.000. Not anymore)
  • Rounding numbers in total aprox. days.
Features Added:
  • You can calculate interest too!
    • Min. Amount = $1
    • Max. Target = $1.000.000.000
    • From $1, You will have $50,000,000 in 17736 paydays (aprox. 2533 days).
  • Symbol $ everywhere so it's more keeewl.
  • Interest for each checkpoint.
Changes:
  • "Current amount in savings" => "Current amount" (v2.1b)
  • "Calculate savings" => "Calculate" (v2.1b)

Code has been a bit optimized, also some label changes:
Spoiler: show
Changes:
  • "Current amount in savings" => "Current amount" (v2.1b)
  • "Calculate savings" => "Calculate" (v2.1b)


Also, I added new demo images to main topic.

The interest calculator is incorrect for amounts above 20m, as above 20m you get half of the old amount, plus five times more taxes. So lets say with 100m in bank, you'll actually get like 10k instead of 100k which it says.

Umm. Since I have no idea about taxes formula, I did not implemented it. But, thanks for correcting me. I fixed it, Um, it's like.. This ($i = amount of current checkpoint; $now = current amount in bank;, it should be understandable for someone who knows something about math, heh):

Code: Select all

if ($i<=20000000)
{
 $paydays = round(log($i/$now)/log(1+0.001));
 $interest= $i*0.001;
}else{
 $paydays = round(log(20000000/$now)/log(1+0.001))+round(log($i/20000000)/log(1+0.0005));
 $interest= $i*0.0005;
}

I am glad you guys like it, I am glad that I've got some support in game about it, but currently I am out of ideas.

What would you like to see next? Some graphic user interface or some more functions (define what), ooor what?
