1. Introduction
I know that sometimes it can take a while to work out how much you need to equip ships or set up factory loops, and I find I usually have to resort to guesswork.

So, to try to help this, I've put all the data into an Excel Spreadsheet to make it simpler. All that is needed is for you to type in how many of each ship/station/weapon/piece of equipment that you want, and the table will give you the total amount that it will come to.

To download this table click here. And please provide feedback of what I can do to improve it.

3. FAQ

Q. Wheres the Equipment and Station Stuff?
A. Try the labled tabs at the bottom.

Q. Can't you have thousand separators to make the credit totals easier to read?
A. If you like you can add them in yourself:

All versions other than version 1.0 have this fixed.

Q. [Name] hasn't been included. Can you add it?
A. See the Readme, if it isn't already listed as planned, then PM me and if its a good idea, and I can do it, I will add it.

Q. [Name] doesn't work/ isn't correct.
A. I'm not infallible, if theres something wrong then PM me and I'll correct it.

Q. How do I use the upgrade part?
A. All the upgrade values are at their max, so no fiddling with percentages or anything, simply type the number of ships in the appropriate column and select 'yes' from the appropriate drop-down box.

Q. Its read-only, I want to remove that.
A. Right click on the icon, and remove the tick from the read-only box, this should get rid of it. (This has been removed, and is only active in the first few downloaded tables of version 1.2)

Q. I don't like the colour, how do I get rid of it?
A. There should be a grey button above the '1' row label and left of the 'A' column label. Right click this, click 'format cells', 'patterns' and under cell shading select 'No colour'.

Q. I don't like the borders, how do I get rid of them?
A. Same as above, only after clicking 'format cells' click 'border' and select (under presets) 'None'.

Q. I can't read it, how do you make it bigger like in the previous version?
A. Its not actually resized, just zoomed out slightly. There should be a box in your 'standard' toolbar which has a percentage in (should be 75%), just change this to zoom in and out. If you can't see the box click on the arrow which reveals the rest of your options on the standard toolbar (it should be to the right of the ? in a speech bubble, the 'help' button). This should bring up a few more options including a button which says 'add or remove buttons', click this and then 'standard'. Then simply select the zoom option, it should add a zoom box.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Version Information
Version 1.2 –
Information on engine upgrades, rudder upgrades and cargo hold upgrades. Also some formatting changes to try to help user-friendliness.

Version 1.1-
Added Product and Resource lists for factories.

Version 1.01-
Thousand commas added in, I can’t believe I forgot them. :roll:

Version 1.0 -
All basic tables believed to be completed, lists of all buyable ships, stations and weapons. Calculations believed to be correct.

Planned for next version:
Lists of additional equipment required for a basic set up per ship for ease of calculating.

The stations and equipment are already in there, on different pages (look at bottom, there should be tabs to change page).

As for the commas between thousands :headbang: . That was an almost unforgivably stupid thing for me to leave out. I'll put them in right now, and the new version should be up by tomorrow.

)I kno this would be an extremly long and tedious task but having CargoBay Extension, Engine Tuneings and Rudder Optimization for each ship would be a good thing.

To help with taht im sure if you taught (or tehy taught themselfs) how to implement it all (i think i have the hang of it when i accerdently deleted a bitof teh codeing and couldnt be bothered to load up a new doc :P )

Im sure including myslef we woudl help you in that task (I will once i got X2 and money to try this out :D)

Dun suppose you could pm me when you have the new version on the forum? i might miss it with school an all

Thx for a great thing and like i said should be stickied

Thanks for all the compliments. If you get any ideas (other than those outlined in the readme for future implementation) for it, don't hesitate to suggest them.

BTW:

Thats already planned for a future version (see the readme) but for which one, I cannot say (it'll take a while to sort out).
Dun suppose you could pm me when you have the new version on the forum? i might miss it with school an all
Yeah, sure. If anyone else wants me to PM when then next version is ready then just ask.

making the money amount have commas is easy people. Just highlight all the total column items dealing with money and Format Cells to Currency. Highlight, right click, format cells, select currency, click OK.

Yeah, it is easy, but I've made the change anyway so that people don't have to do it (dunno when the new dl will be up though).
