These calculations haven't been changed. The information previously published is still accurate.

And also: maybe your dev magic powers are the problem? Maybe you are affecting the calculations in a way that differ from actual weapon mods. Why are you testing with dev +1000 anyway instead of simply equipping Acc3 weapons and compare them to no Acc weapons?
Equipping Acc3 weapons would give such a small variance that a very large sample size + parser would be required to retrieve the data that was being gathered. I have neither an abundance of time, nor experience using the parsing tools available in the community, and so opted for a more dramatic/simplified test scenario that would reveal obvious issues if they existed.

For the purposes of my testing, I created a Phaser Beam Array with an [Accx1000] modifier. This wasn't a Temporary power, or "Dev magic" beyond creating the item. I cloned off the data from an existing [Acc] modifier and increased the value, then attached it to a standard Phaser Beam Array. Simple stuff, and there's no reason it should have created skewed results of any kind.
