PostSubject: Excel Army List Creator Updated v1.5   Mon Apr 30 2012, 23:58

Hey Dark City

I have had this posted for a while at DakkaDakka and LO but can't think of a better place this should have gone first.
Now I am able to post links I give it you you for critique.

I have been wanting to do something productive with my free time at work and had decided to work on some Dark Eldar army lists. Obviously I can't have my Codex with me and be writing away on pad all day so I went looking for a Excel based list creator like the one I had for CSM from these forums years back. I found only one for DE and it still wasn't very self reliant or easy to pickup for anyone new to DE, so I decided to take this chance to improve my Excel skills and make one myself.

Below is version 1.5 of my list creator and I was wondering what kind of other information other DE players would like to see in the "Overview" page. So far I have basic a points break down and a Darklight weapons per 100 pts break down.
What other stats would you like to see added?

Here is the link to the latest version of the list creator for you to review.
Dark Eldar Builder V1.5

I can provided a link to the LO thread where the file has been viewed already by members if you don't trust the dropbox link.

If you have any comments or requests please post them.

Updated to version 1.5 Corrected Court of Archon unit totals.

Well done - I don't envy you the amount of work that must have gone into that.

One thing I did notice - the # of Sslyth and Ur-Ghul allowed are switched around (up to 5 Sslyth?! Yes, please!).

On the overview, I'm not a fan of the "Dark Weapons" part... I never rely on lances (they never hit for me) and bring just as many HWB and HL as dark light weapons in my lists.

Other than that - bravo!

Thanks for that. Will slip a fix in when I get a chance or in a later build if I find some other errors.

Very nice, looks like an easy to tool to make army lists when I'm not home and not carrying the books for point costs.

just a tip.

group the rows for HQ's. (function is called group, it's the function where you get a +/- to expand/collapse)
makes you able to not scroll down for heamys or succubus.

group collums and rows in troop,fast and heavy to prevent sideways scrolling

Lock all cells, except the ones you can edit to precent accidental formula overwrite.
than protect the sheet and don't fill in a password (you might want to tell people the password is simple nothing, or make a simpel password)

Things that might be nice to add on the overview page:
since we aren't strong, you might want to prevent deathstars, but prefer to spread the points.
calculated the percentage per section (troop/fast/HQ/heavy) and maybe in the troop section points percentage per squad.

another nice thing for the overview would be number of models and percentage pick anything relevant.
infantry/HQ/fast/heavy or
infantry, cavalry,beast,jump,bike,monstrious,vehicle or <= my preference
movement range 6"/12"/2D6/24"/36"

I do not want to sound like an ass complaining about something you put a lot of work. The excell sheet is absolulty briljant and very usefull, I merely want to give my opinion on how to improve it even further


EDIT:
I was working on it my self, right now I have the HQ page formated to expand and collapse, also added the option for the dias. PM me your mail if you want it.
