Trinket Comparisons

I have been trying to set up a simulation to compare different trinkets with my currently equipped gear. I have looked at some guides and want to set up a list with which I can test multiple different trinkets, or trinket combinations, at once. The problem I have run into, though, is that it seems copies past the first seem to be simming incorrectly. I am sure this is due to a formatting error on my part, but I can't seem to figure it out.

 

Here is my current sim, where each copy should be identical to the original:

And here are the results of said sim:

Ideally I would like to be able to make a list of trinket dps values like the one in the hunter guides here on Icy Veins, and if I could just get a copy of the sim used to make them I'm sure I could figure it out from there.

 

Also, when I look online the action command to use on use trinkets involves the trinkets name. Is there a way to simply make it use the trinket in a specific slot? Something like "actions+=/use_item,name=trinket2" so I don't need to change it when I upgrade trinkets.

In regards to the sims Azor runs, it's unlikely that he can share his sim. He writes custom strings that are then applied directly to Simcraft. 

As for the action command for trinkets, you have to define the specific trinket. The code doesn't use trinket2 as a definition, instead it is used by the program when calculating the sim. It can't be used to add an action.

As for your sim, are you expecting certain results? What settings are you using?

Thank you for the information about on use trinkets, I'll stop looking for one command which will work for any/all on use trinkets.

 

I am looking to get an accurate side by side comparison of trinkets using my current gear set. I am trying to get this by using the copy command to simply replace trinkets and run another sim, so simcraft will show the dps of each trinket combination I've added as a copy next to my currently used trinkets.

 

When I was doing this I was getting numbers which didn't look right, so I added copies which should be the same as each other to see if I was formatting wrong, and since the sim above shows different dps values for the 3rd copy I am sure I am doing something wrong. I have looked around to try and figure it out for myself, but I have very little knowledge when it comes to simcraft and can't seem to find my error.

Is there any way you can show me your sim settings? The actual options of your simcraft?

      Anybody can help with this? I'm using simcraft to get the stat priority for my MM's gear but it is giving me crazy results, not sure why. Agility=83.13, Ap=80.24, CritRating=0.83, HasteRating=46.84, MasteryRating=1.04, Versatility=217.72, Dps=297.72
      According to stat priority lists, such as the icy veins one, mastery should be the predominant stat. Now I understand that it can change depending on gear and other things, but this much???
      I've attached a screenshot wit the settings in simcraft, in case it helps.
      Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong? Sorry if it's a noob question.
      Cheers!

      Hey, guys. I downloaded simcraft and ran some patchwerk simulations today to help me decide which pieces of gear I want to be wearing, since I have a number of things that seem like they could be viable for my Demonology Warlock The results don't really match what the article here states, but still show Haste on top for single target, and very close to Int for 2 and 3 targets, which seems to at least somewhat match the guide here. I figured this would be good enough for me to determine which gear choices would be the best for me to equip.
      However, I was curious and wanted to see what it said for a friend's character, who is a Fire Mage. From my understanding, Crit is always king for Fire Mages, but the results showed the opposite, which is making me question Simcraft as a whole. Am I doing something wrong? Must something more be done than to import your character, select the type of fight you want, which plots you desire, etc.?
      Here is a link to the scaling results, labeled for convenience.

      Hi I am working on a sim for prot warrior since simulationcraft doesn't work for it currently, you can check it out here if you like:
      http://protsim.herokuapp.com/
      It runs pretty slow so scaling will take a lot of time. Have some problems with it still, like where haste will give more or less uptime on shield block depending on the current rating for some reason. If you find any other bugs please let me know. Currently for me it reports armor>haste>mastery>vers>strength>crit, with armor pretty far ahead - could be that darkmoon fair armor trinket is worth a try!

      Hello!
      Today I found out about SimCraft in combination with the addon pawn (thanks finalboss for the video!).
      But my main question is: What are the "best" options to simulate with my prot warrior and get a proper stat weight and pawn string for a tank?
      I currently have the following settings (plots and reforge are disabled):
