Ability Score Modifiers Dungeon Crawl Classic

Hi I would like to know what is the best mathematical function to calculate the ability score for Dungeon Crawl Classics.
The closest function I could get was floor (Str / 2-4). However, Value 8 has the modifier -1.

Ability score - DCC modifiers.

3 = -3
4 = -2
5 = -2
6 = -1
7 = -1
8 = -1
9 = 0
10 = 0
11 = 0
12 = 0
13 = +1
14 = +1
15 = +1
16 = +2
17 = +2
18 = +3

Hi @PilotodeMouse

You might just have to build it as a Ternary. Simpler than trying to figure out the math.

Here’s what I use for my DCC sheet (WIP) stats, e.g. for the Strength mod:

Str > 17 ? +3 : Str > 15 ? +2 : Str > 12 ? +1 : Str > 8 ? +0 : Str > 5 ? -1 : Str > 3 ? -2 : -3

Not the prettiest, but gets the job done.
