I have to say, I do not usually look into the forums. But today while waiting for the most recent patch I did. And a good thing I did too! I have been playing STO for 3+ years now and have only recently tried PvP... Needless to say I keep getting my backside handed to me on a GPL platter... However having read this thread and the thread by Fuzun (directing me here, and to the updated calculator) I do believe that my PvP game will improve. Thanks a bunch for the time and effort everyone has put out to create this very useful tool! I WILL be posting links to this thread for my fleet (15th Phoenix Guard) to use.

Thanks again!

Thanks - again - for doing this. VERY useful.
That's great to know, I appreciate the update, and the kind words!

I posted a little something about Electro-Plasma Systems and EPtX abilities which you may find of interest.

Thx for this great calculator! It's much appreciated.

One question, though. I don't see my Fleet Advanced Escort in it. Should it be?

You're welcome.

Not at this time. With rare exception, most Fleet ships have the same power settings as their non-fleet counterparts. Those that have different configurations (like some of the Fleet Romulan ships) are listed, but in the interested of keeping the always growing ship lists as small as possible, I've not included all the others, like your Fleet Advanced Escort.

There hasn't seemed to be any demand for it either.

What do you people think? Should I add the Fleet ships or no?

P.S. I know I'm due to put out a Season 8 version of the Calc that includes the Dyson gear and the new ships (Voths, Breen Plesh, and new KDF Mogh). It's not forgotten, just delayed. I'll probably wait and put it out with the Year 04 S8.5 Release (so I can add those new ships, too).

Most of the time when I'm using his, it's from my phone, so I appreciate not having to swipe through a lot of redundant entries, so if it's up for a vote, I vote against duplicates that have the same stats. That said, it's your ball, hoss, so do what feels right to you.

I eagerly await the 8/8.5 update. I forget if I've said this before, but thanks a ton for this labor of love.

im really dissapointed that you choose to not support opensouce excel programms anymore. this will force me and several others im sure, to give up on this calculator. unfortunately the very important part of custom-energy-level calculation is broken. noone plays their ship with 100,25,25,50 anymore since you can go down to 15. now i cannot test powerlevels to get round numbers anymore at all.

i can understand that you dont want to debugg two programms, but maybe you could consider switching to the opensource variant, nearly everyone is using?! ^^ i mean i cannot afford MSexcel at any point, and why should i if a free2use variant is out there?

maybe someone can tell me a source of a free msexcel (excelviewer from ms wont work, i cannot modify stats in it)variant or can tell me if going down to OO prior 4 will fix this issues?

Thanks for the vote and kind words Gen. The current plan (such as there is), would be to not add redundant ships.

I'm sorry the update hasn't come out. I've just been too busy with rl/work. I haven't forgotten though.

I never really chose to support OS Excel programs, they just happened to support me. With the release of OO v4 they stopped supporting what I release.

I haven't had time lately to support my own project in Excel, much less try to figure out why the Calc got broke in OO v4. Also, I'll quote this bit from the FAQ (post 2):

...I'm sorry, but this isn't a paying gig for me, it's only a hobby, and I've no interest in debugging another program. ...if someone else champion's OO v4, interacts with their community/forums to develop a fix, and/or can provide me with an easy few steps to integrate, I'll do what I can. Otherwise, OO v4 will remain officially unsupported.
So there you go David Eight. Feel free to champion OO... Take the Calc to the OO community/forums and work to get a solution there...

Thank you Patrician (lordhavelock) for your calculator, go to your real job. Some people and I wait here for your new calculator version (when you have time for this).

Always... thanks Patrician

btw i found out that going back to older oo will solve the problems, so everything is fine for now, i hope your newer calcs will not get unsupported by oo3.4 since they are written with newer msexels while still not not working with oo4+, that would be bad then.
maybe its a problem with oo4 in the end. i cannot imagine what may break exactly 2 parts of a calc, and leaves everything else totally fine.

and i just wanted to express my disappointment if i loose this calc right half a year after i found it. it saved me a lot of money (eg zen for unecessary respeccs). it wasnt directed to you in person, i expressed my dissapointment, though knowing your way for decisions, cause, its still dissapointing for me ;-)

but for now everything is fince cause going down to oo3.4 solved the problem.
