Can't Figure It Out

Can't Figure It Out
Hello friends,

If I were to grow a character from 7 feet, and 450 pounds to 10 feet tall, how do I calculate what the character's new weight would be? Would it be somewhere over a ton?

Someone please help! I stink at math! LOL!

RE: Can't Figure It Out
The Visual Macro Statistics tool actually figures this out, among other things! You'll want to try the "GetWeight" command, e.g. https://vms.bigfurs.com/help/#GetWeight: I know this works since I use it Smile

If you don't want to stop by IRC to poke the Mechamaw bot (we won't bite.. mostly!), you can play around with the Flash VMS tool here, https://vms.bigfurs.com/ . The interface itself doesn't support setting a custom weight, but you can do that on your account if you create one via the website, here https://axiom.bigfurs.com/VMSRegister.php . I -think- that should scale according to your actual weight.

Now, if you want to figure out on your own.. it's loosely based on the Square Cube Law. In short, if you do size×4, it's weight×8. There's a neat article on it here, http://www.buzzle.com/articles/square-cube-law.html , and as usual, Wikipedia has a bunch of math for it, here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square-cube_law .

To be or not to be, that is not your question.
Whether it is better to suffer myriad virus warnings, stricken with dire threats, or to be infected.
To crash, to delete, to BSoD.
Or 'tis nobler to expunge the evil, and install Ubuntu.

How do I log in to the VMS? I don't see a login screen.
