    Count Data

    Source: Stardew Valley

    Tool: Microsoft Excel

    All frozen geodes were broken open by Clint at 2:30 PM on Monday the 22nd in the Fall season.

    Here is a link to my previous results on regular geodes.


    I would have loved to recorded the data using a much larger sample size, however it is a very time consuming process, especially for a game.

    Using a raspberry pi, Python and a couple of temperature sensors I sample the temperature at the top and bottom of my hot water (immersion heater) every 5 minutes. Why? Because I can. I send this via MQTT to another pi and display it using Node-Red. In the winter months I can them optimize bath time for when the water is hottest :-)

    In this case I'm displaying the data in Qlikview together with local daily air temperature I've pulled off the web. Note that as the house was empty over Christmas the bottom of the tank warmed up and this shows up in the data.

    you should ditch the hot water heater you have and go tankless. my monthly bill was cut in half when I replaced my old style hot water heater with a tankless electric model.

    Got the idea from /u/nafrotag at their r/dataisbeautiful submission

    We still have his last 2 episodes on our DVR. Unwatched, we just can’t bring ourselves to watch them. I’ve been reading his books and the common thread through his career is that he feels like he “stole a really nice car and never got caught.” He felt like a fraud his whole career because he failed upwards and they loved him for it. I hope this isn’t what lead to his suicide.

    The calculations of hourly spending assumes an equal time spent in each country, things purchased at equal rates, etc. It really demonstrates no usable information.

    I don't know what direction your trip went in. Why not label number of days in each country?

    I've never played Stardew Valley, and I don't mean to disparage your data but the number of outcomes is a significant fraction of your sample size. This means that trends are going to be a lot less indicicative of what sounds to be a (weighted?) random outcome generator. For practical purposes the sample size should probably be increased by at least an order of magnitude.

  • monsieurintrovert
    38 points Jul 17,2018, 8:43am

    You should try this as a bar graph. It would be easier to visualize the differences between outcomes. As it stands, the drop rates of these items are difficult to compare.

  • I_AM_SPAM
    114 points Jul 17,2018, 3:10am

    The guys over at r/stardewvalley will be able to fill you in further (I don't visit the sub because !spoilers!), but as far as I understand it this graphic tells us nothing.

    Stardew does not randomly produce the contents of geodes on the fly, rather every geode's content is predetermined based on a seed generated upon creation of a new game.

    Thus, if you use the Stardew Predictor tool it will list what each and every geode will contain in order of cracking across all types of geode.

    Hey u/jbird221 I play Stardew valley a ton and I really like this chart, but I feel like the sample size is too small to be accurate enough. You mentioned in a comment that it would take too long to collect more geodes, I'd be happy to do some farming and give you the data to make a more detailed chart, cause I can't make a well designed chart like this. Feel free to message me if you wanna collab on it :3

    You can buy omni geodes from Sandy, if someone prople can do this with 100 of them, it would be fantastic. Then in a post we can mix the data. I also have some frozen geodes and magma geodes saved, since I almost finished the museum collection (one item, ffs) I might go mining and try to get more. It would be nice if others would participate but maybe it would depend on the mods to make a thread for it? Question: does the wiki show the percentage of obtaining any mineral in the different geodes? If not, we could do something cool together.

    One question: Did you factor luck into your calculations? It has a measurable impact on the items that drop from a geode.

    You'll need bigger sample size for thatThere many item that can you get from geodes (and some with very small chance)

    And 100 geodes aren't that much, even for normal gameplay

    I remember that I once got an Amethyst when I opened a Geode. Considering that it's not in this graph, is it THAT rare?!

    Keep in mind that the rates will be different depending on the luck of the day. You can check this on the tv every morning.

    You should at least denote which what the "smallest unit" or "most common unit" is. That bottom left which one looks the smallest, but the next smallest seems to be a multiple with a fraction of it (1.5x more), so the smallest is at least 2, because if it was 1 there would be a weird fraction happening between the next smallest and it. It is impossible to tell if that's 2smallest/3next or 3smallest/4next and so on, but I'm banking on that white one being 2, with all those next smallest being 3.

    It also would be a nicer representation to just make a 10x10 grid and populate each break with the icon. So you'd have the exact number represented.

    Also, this sample size is way too low to be conclusive, doubling it to 200 geodes would have a significant impact on all of those that are the same size.

    Finally, to edit this, I would make the widths increase in size as you go around, so that the smallest is next to the largest, and they get progressively bigger or stay the same, that would be a quick glance "rarity check" and then only require the smallest and perhaps largest counts to get a good idea.

    THIS IS JUST A SIMPLE PIE CHART!!! WHY IS IT SO BEAUTIFUL?!

    but no seriously we need to get these graphs on some medicine scientific articles. They will be much more fun to read.

    Oh a donut chart. You've managed to pick the only thing worse at visualizing this sort of data than the loathed pie chart.

    I've never played Stardew Valley, and I don't mean to disparage your data but the number of outcomes is a significant fraction of your sample size. This means that trends are going to be a lot less indicicative of what sounds to be a (weighted?) random outcome generator. For practical purposes the sample size should probably be increased by at least an order of magnitude.

  • monsieurintrovert

    You should try this as a bar graph. It would be easier to visualize the differences between outcomes. As it stands, the drop rates of these items are difficult to compare.

    Count Data

    Source: Stardew Valley

    Tool: Microsoft Excel

    All geodes were broken open at Clint's shop on the same day at exactly 3:00 PM.


    Thanks for all of the feedback! I will definitely use everyone's suggestions in the future. It seems like the biggest flaw in the portrayal of my data is that I ordered the minerals/items in alphabetical order rather than by magnitude. I'll be sure to do order them correctly next time. Another popular suggestion is to increase the sample size by an order of magnitude. Although I would love to do so, it takes a while to collect that many samples, especially for a game. If I do find time, I'll be more than happy to re-evaluate the data based on 1000 geodes. Thanks!


    Edit 1: Added source and tool info per rules.

    Edit 2: Added comments.

    The guys over at r/stardewvalley will be able to fill you in further (I don't visit the sub because !spoilers!), but as far as I understand it this graphic tells us nothing.

    Stardew does not randomly produce the contents of geodes on the fly, rather every geode's content is predetermined based on a seed generated upon creation of a new game.

    Thus, if you use the Stardew Predictor tool it will list what each and every geode will contain in order of cracking across all types of geode.

    Literally started this game hours ago. Really love it so far, nice to see some kind of drop rate for some items.

    Hey u/jbird221 I play Stardew valley a ton and I really like this chart, but I feel like the sample size is too small to be accurate enough. You mentioned in a comment that it would take too long to collect more geodes, I'd be happy to do some farming and give you the data to make a more detailed chart, cause I can't make a well designed chart like this. Feel free to message me if you wanna collab on it :3

    You can buy omni geodes from Sandy, if someone prople can do this with 100 of them, it would be fantastic. Then in a post we can mix the data. I also have some frozen geodes and magma geodes saved, since I almost finished the museum collection (one item, ffs) I might go mining and try to get more. It would be nice if others would participate but maybe it would depend on the mods to make a thread for it? Question: does the wiki show the percentage of obtaining any mineral in the different geodes? If not, we could do something cool together.

    I thought the title said geodudes and I immediately thought what kind of monster would do that to a pokemon.

    I think this is the first sensible use of a pie chart we've seen here for a long long time.

    Would've been nice to have lil' numbers tho.

  • colonelhalfling

    Is this sorted by geode? Each of the four types have a different loot table, so it seems very unlikely that such a small sample size is representative.

    I am on year 4 of my main profile, mine a lot, buy tons of geodes from krobus, and never once got marble.

    I'm super into Stardew Valley at the moment and these geodes always excite me. I want to expand my collection in the library :D

    I have cracked open so many geodes in my time in the Valley. I never thought to record the outcomes for them. So much wasted opportunity...

  • Tekkraft

    One question: Did you factor luck into your calculations? It has a measurable impact on the items that drop from a geode.

    Other than that, that's very impressive.

    You are looking at a weekly report generated for the upper management of a large industrial factory that assembles machines.

    I am a mechanical engineer working as a machined parts buyer on a Global Sourcing team. I created a database in Microsoft Access with a UI for our team members to track all aspect of the project.

    Several queries are exported to excel and used to generate several pivot tables which are then converted to the visuals shown above.
