Gem drop chances from Ore veins

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anyone knows of the different chances of getting gems. Whether it is rarer to get a citrine or a sapphire






If anyone knows the order it would be great for setting the prices! much appreciated! :)

if (_isMine) then {
if((random 10) <= 4) then {
_gems = ["ItemTopaz","ItemObsidian","ItemSapphire","ItemAmethyst","ItemEmerald","ItemCitrine","ItemRuby"];
_gem = _gems select (floor(random (count _gems)));
_selectedRemoveOutput set [(count _selectedRemoveOutput),[_gem,1]];

edit: no gem is more rare than another, just randomly picked from an array of all gem types

      Here's my version of  @OtterNas3 vehicle key changer.  It was subsequently modified by @Grahame for epoch 1.0.6.
      This adds support for briefcases, gems and coins as well as using the epoch vehicle upgrade system to do the key changing/claiming.
