Using DOTlan maps, do the system security numbers round up or down? Meaning if it is 0.45 does it appear as 0.5 system in EVE meaning it still is in high sec.

EVE Online truncates numbers. In other words only takes the integer value. So 0.49 becomes 0.4.

Not quite, some values are truncated, some are rounded. Sec status is rounded, with the standard 0-4 rounds down, 5+ rounds up. The sec status is stored as a much higher precision in the database, so you may get some double rounding errors. For example, Hek is in the DB as 0.549668267074902, dotlan rounds that to 0.55, so if you rounded it, you would get 0.6, but in-game it is 0.5.

The numbers are rounded from the true security rating... mostly. First they are adjusted:

if rawSecLevel <= 0.0:
return 0.0
elif rawSecLevel > 0.0 and rawSecLevel < 0.05:
return 0.05
else:
return rawSecLevel

and then the result is rounded to one decimal digit.

Consistently inconsistent. It's a feature™. Wink

Anything to make figuring out the system hard.

Yeah, rounding numbers needs a mathematician or something. I don't seem to be able to get the hang of it.

/me confused..

Why not simply create static sec ratings? 0.0, 0.1 etc. Why have sec rating on 0.05 in the beginning, so it has to be truncated/rounded?

What generates sec status anyway?

no idea, but id guess that they used a RNG for the sec of systems within a parameter. so they set a capital system, and gave the surrounding systems a posible rating of +/- 3. and from that system, another RNG of a +/- 3.

ofc, i have no proof, and theres always outliers, but i think that the most logical reason why just off the top of my head.

the sec status is probably just rounded for display/looks

the actual rating is used in calculations for penalties, rat spawns, etc. So, one 0.1 system might be slightly better then another 0.1 system... instead of all 0.1 systems being the same

Its so 0.01 through 0.04 do not get rounded down to 0.0 and instead get rounded to 0.1. Big difference between 0.0 and 0.1. True security rating effects minerals, rats, mission rewards, or it has at one point.
