Lord Inar's Unofficial Troop Builder

#1 Postby Lord Inar » Fri Sep 03, 2010 10:53 am

Hey all,

Here's my unofficial troop builder Excel sheet, finally updated for the Showdown reboot.

The latest version is 1.6 and can be found here:
http://savagepedia.wikispaces.com/Showdown!

Hopefully this thread will also be used as a bug tracker for it.
If you find anything missing/wrong with the sheet, let me know.

Before anyone says anything, no, it doesn't have vehicles yet!

Hmmm. Google has tech problems where the file cannot be virus scanned. When I select the link "Download anyway", it does nothing. I tried with Safari and IE browsers.

Maybe we need to wait for Google to clear up its problems...

I just did with Firefox to check and it worked fine.
If it still doesn't work, I can PM you.

Yeah Google Docs seems to be whacked right now.

I'll be able to look at it on Monday.

Check the new URL at Savagepedia. That should work now.

Let me know,

Hmm, I'm not sure it's showing up. The change log shows troop_builder_v1p6.xls uploaded, but I see no link in the Showdown page. Is anyone else seeing this file???

It's under Tools on that page, but also here is the direct link: http://savagepedia.wikispaces.com/file/ ... r_v1p6.xls

Oh, I see now; it's an organization problem. The other troop builders really need to move to the Tools section like yours. The top section stopped my eyes from looking further down.

Hey, great tool!

Here are some things I've run across.

I have been unable to create setting specific monster abilities on the setting tab and then transfer to the character sheet tab.

The monster ability Undead increased toughness by +1 instead of +2.

If a character has alot of abilities, they don't all show up on the Copy to Word tab.

That's what I have so far. Wicked sweet work, though!

Thanks!

As to the Monstrous Ability thing. I'm off by 1. Just ignore the first cell and put values in the second and subsequent cells and you should be fine.

How many abilities are talking about? Is it just that you can't see them, or are they not there at all?

I'll check the undead part and see what's wrong.
Thanks again for checking out the tool!

No problem, my pleasure.

With the Copy to Word, even though I can't see it on Excel, it shows up fine in Word so we're cool there.

The Monstrous Ability works like you said so that's good to go, too.
