Talk: EMRP: Barrville
This page is used to collect and display information about the status of buildings (and other conditions) in Malton as broadcast on 25.96MHz, a known active External Military channel. Reports are logged on the "Talk: EMRP (Suburb)" pages shown at left. The "EMRP: (suburb)" pages themselves include an area for summaries; when an "EMRP: (Suburb)" page is included on another page, this summary is the only part that is shown. This effect can be seen in an alphabetical listing of suburbs below, and is primarily for use on suburb pages and the External Military Report Map.
Note that the information provided by 25.96MHz is believed to be totally objective, extracted in a manner similar to that found on the games statistics page. This page attempts to keep the interpretation and display of said information equally objective, by directly translating frequently used descriptions into directly corresponding values.
External Military Report Summaries, alphabetically by suburb
Format and Meaning of Report Summaries
Report Summaries look like this:
"z" is the number of reported zombies, displayed as a number with some qualifier ("q" when updating). Report texts include a number value, rounded to the nearest ten for values below 100. Over 100, the reports round to the nearest fifty. Text such as "clear", "looking quiet" and "it's looking empty" is interpreted as approximately 0, and "minimal activity" is seen as less than ten zombies. The summary uses symbols to qualify this number. If the report suggests the number is approximate, such as; "counted about 50", "50 or so", "maybe 50 down there" then the tilde symbol (~) is added as the qualifier, in this case 50~. For text suggesting more than this number, such as; "counted over", "I've got over". A plus sign (+) is used as the qualifier, e.g. 20+. Conversely for reports suggesting less than the number, such as "nearly" than a minus sign (-) is used, e.g. 20-. Reports of "a dozen" zombies are 12~, and reports of "a couple of dozen" zombies are 24~. "Minimal activity" is taken to be 10-.
"i" is the level of infrastructure / intact buildings. This is graded on a 3 star system, with *** being no damage, and --- being the most damage possible. The phrases associated with these values are shown on the table below.
"p" is the level of power in a suburb. The most positive possible report levels ("lights are on all over", for example) are indicated by A and F indicates no lights. The phrases associated with these values are shown on the table below.
Lastly, the broadcast date for the report that these values was extracted from is given. Clicking the date link will take you to a page specific to that suburb, which shows (on its talk page) an archive of all logged report texts and also allows you to edit and update the logged reports and extracted figures if you have a new report to log.
