[wheybags] [16.25] .5 items

It is not an important bug but it is still irritating: some rocks seem to contain half items:

Ah, thats because its an average of a random number. Its somewhere between x and y randomly, and averages out to what you see if you pick a lot of em up.

Not a bug, but can be confusing.

Thanks for the explaination. Maybe displaying something like "25 to 50" (or whatever it is) would avoid the confusion.

Fixed for 0.16.26. It should now show the actual value you will get.
Thanks for the report!

Except this "fix" broke a useful feature:

In all previous versions, this would show the average rate of the infinite resource. It should also be showing the chance of getting stone.

Then there is this:

Now, because the chance is so low it shows nothing. If you didn't know what deposit was there you would have no idea what you were mining.

Edit:
It also seems to have affected the actual mining chances somehow. After ~10min of gameplay, none of my 3 miners have produced any ore. Considering the rate in 0.16.25 was ~0.2 ore/sec, it is highly unlikely this is just a run of bad luck.

Edit 2:
Appears related to viewtopic.php?f=30&t=58210.

You can't just give a range, you need to give actual percentages, or otherwise.

I mean, Kornov... Uranium Refinery method has like a 0.3% chance of giving an enriched uranium, but it would be displayed as 0-1. That implies 50% chance. You have to give more information for that to work. Actually saying 0.3% of 1 would probably work, honestly.
