    Introduction

    Since this site is all in Japanese and using Google translate can give you strange results, you can simply find the kanji of what you are looking for using the wiki and CTRL+F to find the corresponding link on the database.

    In the following sections, I'll go into further detail about how to search for what you are looking at.

    Searching by Ship

    To search by ship names, you'll be using the first section on the left hand side. Simply pick which ship type you're looking for and then select which ship you're looking for as shown below.


    For ships, there will usually be three tables. The first table will be what map they drop in:


    Headings are: Map Name | Node Name | Total Drop Reports | S Rank Drop Reports | A Rank Drop Reports | B Rank Drop Reports | Overall Drop Rate | Sample Size

    The second table is the construction results table:


    Headings are: Recipe | Total Number of Drop Reports | Total Drops by Dev Mats Used | HQ Level Range | Drop Rate | Sample Size

    The last table is the development results using the selected ship:


    Headings are: Development Result | Total Drop Reports | Secretary Level Range | HQ Level Range | Drop Rate | Recipe

    Searching by Equipment

    To search by equipment, just pick the category you want and search for and the specific equipment:


    There will only be one table for equipment:


    Headings are: Recipe | Total Drop Reports | Secretary Level Range | HQ Level Range | Drop Rate | Sample Size | Secretary Ship Type

    Searching by Map

    You'd do the same thing to search drop rates by map. Pick the world/event, then pick the map you want to farm. The worlds and maps are numbered so you don't need to know kanji. Below is how you would look at the drops in 1-1.


    There are separate tables for each node, but the nodes are listed by the name of the enemy fleet. You'll need to get the name of the node off the wiki and CTRL+F to find the node you're looking for. In the example, 1-1-A is called '敵偵察艦'.



    Headers are: Ship Name | Total Drop Reports | S Rank Drop Reports | A Rank Drop Reports | B Rank Drop Reports | Drop Rate

    For events, the table looks different because of difficulty selection:


    Headers are: Ship Name | Total Drop Reports | S Rank Drop Reports | A Rank Drop Reports | B Rank Drop Reports | Overall Drop Rate | Hard Drop Rate | Medium Drop Rate | Easy Drop Rate

    Searching by Recipe

    To search by recipe, pick what you are trying to do (development, construction, large ship construction) and pick which recipe you want to try.


    For development recipes, the table will look like this:


    Headings are: Recipe | Total Drop Reports | Secretary Level Range | HQ Level Range | Drop Rate | Sample Size | Secretary Ship Type

    For construction and LSC recipes, the table will look like this:


    Headers are: Ship Name | Total Drop Reports | Drop Reports by Dev Mats Used | HQ Level Range | Drop Rate

    Contributing to Kancolle-DB

    Here is the most important part. To make this resource better, it requires lots of data to get more accurate results. Please do consider jumping through some hoops in order to help all your fellow admirals.

    Getting a Key

    The first step to contributing is to get yourself a unique identifier. To do so, simply click on the big 'Sign In with Twitter' button on the main page:


    Once you click that, you will be prompted to sign in to a Twitter account. Don't worry if you don't have one, you can sign up in a jiffy. If you're reluctant to give your email to twitter, simply visit 10 Minute Mail to get a throwaway email for signing up. You won't need your twitter account after getting the key anyway.

    After signing in, you'll be taken to a page with your key. That key is important so keep it somewhere. So far, only the following programs are compatible with Kancolle-DB.

    Kancolle Viewer

    To use KCV and contribute to Kancolle-DB, you need to use their modified version that can be downloaded here. It's based off the Grabacr's JP version so the UI is only half translated.

    Once you've unpacked it and set it up like the regular KCV, simply go into Settings > Network and scroll to the bottom. There should be an extra option there now that you can check off to send data to Kancolle-DB (艦これ統計データ ¹ãƒ¼ã‚¹ã¸ãƒ‡ãƒ¼ã‚¿ã‚’é ä¿¡ã™ã‚‹). Copy and paste your key into the text box below that option and you're all set.


    Database Software (beta)

    You can get the beta database tool here. The tool requires you to play from the DMM website. It works even if you're using the KC3 admiral panel as long as you are playing on the website.

    To use it, you simply extract the program and double click on "KanColleDbPost.exe". This will open a new window that you can enter your key into the box and start/stop the data collection.


    Click the button marked "開始" to start the data collection. Click it again to stop the data collection.

    FAQ
    Q: Does the database software steal my login API?
    A: No it does not. The api calls you see in the log are api calls the game makes to request information from the server. The database software only logs api calls relating to construction, development and sorties. Your login api is still safe.

    Q: Where is logbook/Electronic Observer?
    A: I couldn't get it to work, so I'm skipping it unless someone comes forward to help. It's all in JP anyway and there are other ways to submit data to Kancolle-DB.

    Re: [Guide] Everything You Need to Know About Kancolle-db

    @Leyana: Thanks for the guide. I've been on KanColle DB before, but it's not the most user-friendly thing if one isn't fluent in Japanese. This helps quite a bit.

    [Guide] Everything You Need to Know About Kancolle-db

    @Leyana

    Did something break in the recent edit?

    This is what I see on 3 different browsers (chrome, I.E., Opera) + Safari on iPad. Only the Introduction is showing and the only "link" working. Tapatalk for some reason, is the only thing that shows the rest of the post.

    @DoraGrailMon Thanks for letting me know. The forum move just screwed up all the JP characters.

    Fixed it now.

    Re: [Guide] Everything You Need to Know About Kancolle-db v1.1

    Thanks for the nice introduction to kancolle-db.

    I will try to include more information about the site later on but for now I have a rough guide on how to make logbook submit data to kancolle-db.net (with my crap Japanese).

    This is only tested with v2.0.2 - please ignore if the minute variances if the screenshots does not look how it should look like as this is done under different operating system.



    Under the menu "その他" go into the option named "è¨*定". Alternatively Ctrl+O shortcut should also work.



    Once you are in the settings (è¨*定) the very first option on the left is the one that allows you to configure parameters such as proxy as well as kancolle-db settings. Ignore the proxy settings as they are irrelevant to this case.

    • The first step is to check the box as indicated in the screenshot as the first step. (艦これ統計データ ƒ™ãƒ¼ã‚¹ã¸ãƒ‡ãƒ¼ã‚¿ã‚’é ä¿¡ã™ã‚‹)
    • In the box named Access key here, you are to input your access key from allowing kancolle-db accessing your twitter. The words are: アクセスã‚*ー
    • The third step is optional, that is if you want to see output log from sending details to kancolle-db. ãƒ‡ãƒ¼ã‚¿ãƒ™ãƒ¼ã‚¹ã¸ã®é €ä¿¡ã‚’ãƒ*グ出力す゠‹


    Other miscellaneous tips and information:



    • Access key that are not used in 90 days will be removed from kancolle-db. As noted on the site; ※ 90日間データ送信が ないå*´åˆã¯ã‚¢ã‚¯ã‚»ã ‚¹ã‚*ーが削除されだ¾ã™
    • Although this discovery was not made by myself I wanted to point out that it is possible to view just the html pages without the iframe in the way. Here is an example on how to get the static html page for just the ship - to obtain static html pages for others you just need to vary the set up a bit. This method has been tried and tested on Google Chrome browsers - so you may need to find out how to make it work for your browser:
      • Open up developer tools (F12 or Ctrl+Shift+I/J)
      • Go into Elements tab (on top of that split window by default) if not already there.
      • On kancolle-db.net site, click on the ship that you are interested in viewing the details of via expanding the list of ship types and then clicking on the name of the ship.
      • Click on "Inspect Element" icon which is the first button in the same row as the Elements tab. Alternatively Ctrl+Shift+C also works.
      • Move your mouse cursor to the name of the ship that you have selected from the list of ships in the drop down list and then clicking on the name of the ship.
      • Your Elements tab will momentarily highlight the relevant source codes that makes up the page. Look for the details enclosed in quotes for both class and id. In the case of Akizuki as an example here, class should be written down as "ship" and id is written down as "421"
      • Once you obtained those two particulars you can just type into the address bar in the following format: http://kancolle.db.net/<ship>/<id.html>. <ship> is where you enter the name of the class as it is without quotes, likewise with <id>. In the case of Akizuki it would be http://kancolle-db.net/ship/421.html.
