Re: Future of Starfire Turn Spreadsheet Mk5

Honestly, at this point if at all possible I'd transfer the spreadsheets to Open Office. It's free, it's multi-platform (Office 07 on the Mac is crippled) and so on. And even if you don't, I really can't recomend switching to the .xlsl format, the "compatability pack" fails miserably when...

Re: Future of Starfire Turn Spreadsheet Mk5

I'm just curious: do you need Excel 2007 to make macros? No, technically you don't. They've been around for a while. However, I finally learned macros on 2007, and it does have several commands in basic Office 2007 that aren't in newer ones. For example, in normal Excel (97 and earlier) you have to...

Re: Starfire Turn Spreadsheet Mk5

The format used in the Planets tab is not similar to the way the system generation tool displays planets. It would be better if the format was similar so that things could be copied and pasted instead of having to be typed in. This was noted a while back by one of my playtesters (different planet c...

Future of Starfire Turn Spreadsheet Mk5

Now, to the future. I think I have reached the technical limit that I can do with Excel and my current coding abilities. That being said, there are several things that could be done to improve the spreadsheet. I want to tidy up the code for easier maintenence. A lot of stuf that I've done to make th...

Re: Starfire Turn Spreadsheet Mk5

Sure! Go on ahead. Feel free to mirror it as well... I didn't zip it up, but it should compress nicely....

Starfire Turn Spreadsheet Mk5

Heya guys! I've been doing my usual thing, working on my spreadsheet and working to make it as advanced and useful and functional as possible. As a result, I'm now happy to state that my Mk5 version is ready to be released unto the world! Since I can't upload a file out here directly, I'm just going...

Re: Updated Stellar Generaton?

Well, my primary source of data is the GURPS Space 4e book. You've googled more info than I have, honestly :P The rulebook that I am looking at suggests that you tend to have jovian worlds either up tight IE mercury orbits, or more in their standard orbit. The window to actually have them in an ecce...

Re: Updated Stellar Generaton?

The issue isn't an overly complicated one, figure you say that on a 1d12 (the only time you use them in Starfire is system generation anyhow so using it here isn't an issue) if you roll a 1 you get an epistellar gas giant. Then do a 1d6/2 and replace the planet that you roll up with an additional ga...

Updated Stellar Generation?

I had a bit of a thought as I was flipping through my GURPS Space 4e book (definetly something worth picking up even if you DON'T do sci-fi RPGs. Very comprehensive discussion about a lot of space topics) and as I looked at their star system creation mechanic, something occured to me. Starfire dosen...
