Can anyone share a formula for calculating Voyage time?

Hello,
I'm working on a new project to help me work out the best possible crew for a given Voyage. I know several such tools exist already but I'm interested in a raw formula that I can use myself to calculate Voyage time.

(If you also have anything for shuttle maths, that would be great too)

Feel free to DM me if you like.

Many thanks,

  • You've probably already seen this, but Ray's Law of Ten Hour Voyages has some good info. Not quite a formula - at least, nothing that comes out very quick and easy anyways - but with a little imagination and neural elbow grease you should be able to figure something out.

    I *thought* the Voyage Tool pinned here in Ready Room was open source and you could go over that, but I don't see any links in the original post pointing to source code. I know I've seen something like it on GitHub though. Maybe go there and search for STT? I know I found other stuff that wasn't necessarily voyage related, but I also wasn't looking for voyage stuff either.

    Good luck!

    There is one, but I never saved it. The link above for ten hour voyages is good. For 8 hours, I always went with eight thousand on the primary and secondary and as close to four thousand as I could for all the others. I don't remember what I used to do for 6 hour or 4 hour. Basically, the primary and secondary should be as high as you can and double or triple everything else.

  • I also gave that info to Stellar like 3 years ago.

    @Xanathar , I came up with a rough formula to help me decide whether to recall at T=8 hours or let it ride to T=10:

    AM = 12980 – 488*T –
    [(9/14)*(gold+silver)/2] > 0 ,
    where the sum of the bronzes? is >= 22K.

    That is based on some back-of-the-envelope math (literally), using the 35-25-10-10-10-10 breakdown for skillchecks:
