53 - Option to always assume the hardcoded gems

I'm having my comparisons slightly thrown off right now due to an item having either a unique or JC-only gem in it. RB then assumes "standard" gems in the new item I'm looking at, and it comes out as looking worse even though it really isn't.

There's also the issue of prismatic gems not being handled at all.

Hence, I'm thinking

1. Add prismatic gem selection (just like rgb/m)

2. Allow us to "[x] Always assume the above gems". I'm even thinking it should default to ON (and simply be disabled if all gems aren't filled out).

"Ignore gems" is unfortunately not the answer, because that'll always skew the results in favor of nonsocketed items.

    Oh wow has it been over a year?

    Okay, for purposes of comparing two pieces of gear accurately, gems present a problem: you may have JC-only gems in your equipped item which make the new piece look worse when it isn't. You may also have gemmed it differently from how you would gem your new piece.

    So, ... yeah, bad option name there. That's maybe what's causing the confusion.

    A better name would be "[x] Pretend that the default gems are also used in equipped item when comparing."

    My solution makes more sense for comparison purposes to be quite honest...?

    The fix I would propose for JC gems is the option to "treat BoP gems as the next-best BoE version" Or failing that "Treat BoP gems as if the socket contained the auto-fill gem for that color socket."

    This would result in treating a socket containing a JC gem as if it were empty, making it much easier to compare the two items without inflating the value of the item with the JC gem.

    I should add that prismatic sockets are now handled by [x] Ignore prismatic gems which defaults to on, so that part of my ticket you can safely ignore.

    (And tlundse created Ticket 61 for it)

    Could you provide a few examples as how the RatingBuster should deal with items with different socket numbers and different socket colors?

    About the prismatic gems, the JC gems are no longer prismatic so that leave only +all stat gems.

    I don't quite understand what you mean by "Always assume the above gems"
