I'm looking for somebody who, for one reason or another, can actually give me a confirmed formula to calculate the composition result. Once I have that, it's possible - easy even - to calculate the shortest composition path for ANY mount there is - if it can be composed at all.
With the known formula, for example, getting Frostbite or Zebra is possible, the other rares arent. The reason:
X=Color of Main Steed
Y= Color of Minor Steed
Z=Color of New steed
This means that the sum of values of the NEW steed cannot ever exceed the higher sum of values of the older steeds. All three base mounts have one value at 255, one at 150 and one at 0 for a sum of 405 Points. Here's the catch:
Maroon Steed = White Steed = Black Steed = 255+150+0=405
Spotted Steed: 147+134+122=403
Each use of floor means a loss of 0 - 0.9 points, since there are 6 values (3 per mount) that means a total of 0 - 5.6 points lost per composition. This leads to one of two possibilities:
1. The formula is wrong or
2. Not every mount is composable from the base mounts.
A confirmation of the mentioned formula leads to the second possibility. One way or another, I would like to know the correct formula (this one or another, but it needs to actually be tested) so I can at least calculate all composable steeds.
Don't worry, IF somebody gets me the confirmed formula, I will of course share my results. An algorithm to get the shortest breeding paths (optimized as far as I could) is mostly ready and just waiting for the actual calculation.
