So for 4000 lightyears, would it be

( 9 [ (4000 / 500 ) - 1 ] )x 4

If so, I got 63 x 4 which is 252% which is definitely wrong (1. can't be above 100% and 2. If it can, it would be a guranteed shiny every time)

No, I believe you either use 9, or you use (4000/500)-1. The min means minimum, which means you’d use the smaller, so (4000/500)-1 which is 7.
So then it’s 7x4, which is 28%. I think that’s how it’s done. I could be wrong tho.

I'll try to unpack the mathematical symbols used in the equation for d. The minimum (min) function returns the lowest number in the list of arguments. min (3, 6) = 3. min (4, 7, 1) = 1 and so on.

The brackets is actually the floor function (google it).

d = min(9, [l/500 - 1]), but the square brackets here are actually supposed to be floor function brackets.
If you got less than 500 light years, you could end up with floor(0.something - 1) = -1, so d would be -1 at the lowest, and 9 at the highest, if you got at least 5000 light years. Anything beyond 5000 light years doesn't matter.

Let's see if I can put this into a table:
I put in some leading zeroes to make things line up
Distance travelled:

0000-0499 light years: d = -1
0500-0999 light years: d = 0
1000-1499 light years: d = 1
1500-1999 light years: d = 2
2000-2499 light years: d = 3
2500-2999 light years: d = 4
3000-3499 light years: d = 5
3500-3999 light years: d = 6
4000-4499 light years: d = 7
4500-4999 light years: d = 8
00005000+ light years: d = 9


EDIT - I looked at the source code, which makes d 0 for distance < 500 light years.

Where did that C++ source code come from anyway?

So, to keep things simple - your shiny rate goes up 1% (one ring), 2% (two rings), or 4% (the extra sparkles) per 500 light years, with caps of 10%, 19%, and 36% respectively if you manage to hit 5000 light years. And the starting numbers are 1%, 1%, and 0% until you hit 1000.

Amusingly, this means that the 7% figure that's been thrown around is accurate, but only for double rings 2000 light years in and single rings 3500 light years in.
