In EFT I see this calculator and dont understand which numbers it is asking me to plug in. I can not figure out were the calc comes up with its base number after imputs? Please help.

The figures are percentages of damage types dealt by NPC. For example 20% thermal, 20% EM, 30% explosive, 30% kinetic (sums up to 100%). There you have it, an NPC type specific damage profile. The profile is then reflected on your ships tank resistances to give you a view of your tank efficiency against particular enemy type.

The percentages used are rough estimates, based on research done by some individuals. You can google for these. One example here

Also afaik you don't even have to put in the numbers in percentage...

The feature is designed so you can get a custom defense rating from any type of damage you chose. For instance if you want to compare agaisnt a blaster bloat, look up the info on navy antimatter and you can read 2 damage types: thermal + kinetic. Take those 2 numbers and enter them into EFT. EM and Explosive will be 0 and EFT will automatically calculate the rest... Now the tank numbers are calculated to simulate only getting shot with navy antimatter.

But be careful with these. The linked one claims Angels do very little EM/Thermal, but a handful of angel ships do a lot of those types. You won't want to be neglecting EM resist when fighting lots of Angel Seraphim, for instance.

Go to your EFT folder and open the Config file up in notepad.
Go to the very bottom of the page and start a new line, so it conforms with the rest of the info and paste the info below in.

DamageProfile=Gurista,0,570,3504,0
DamageProfile=Angel,480,0,719,3058
DamageProfile=Sansha,1945,1598,0,0
DamageProfile=Serpentis,0,1627,1320,0
DamageProfile=Blood Raider,613,570,60,0
DamageProfile=Gallente Federation,25,781,1127,0
DamageProfile=Minmatar Republic,615,310,815,1633
DamageProfile=Amarr Empire,1204,1349,0,0
DamageProfile=Caldari State,0,795,944,0
DamageProfile=EoM,0,618,1718,0
DamageProfile=Mercenaries,90,634,424,108
DamageProfile=Rogue Drones,86,91,281,964
DamageProfile=Pure EM,1,0,0,0
DamageProfile=Pure Explosive,0,0,0,1
DamageProfile=Pure Kinetic,0,0,1,0
DamageProfile=Pure Thermal,0,1,0,0

This should give you the damage profiles you desire, just right click the tank symbol and select what profile and you can see how your tank holds up.

Ps I cant remember exactly where I originally got the numbers from, but Ive used these for years and they work for me.
