Announcing the latest, and hopefully best, version of the crew calculator to date.
As old timer here know long ago, before the great server crash, and I got married, and a few other life things, I created a crew size calculator for the members here. It was conceived because many on here did not realize just how big the crews of their ships needed to be. It was well received but had several issues, all of which I have since worked out. This latest version features fully function circular references and notes on how to use it embedded into it. It also has several generic size charts based on ship class to give you an idea of where to start. Anyway enjoy, and you will need excel in order to run it, or use the spreadsheet program in open office
. If you have any questions on how to use it feel free to ask.
The latest version corrected a handful of errors that somehow crept in between the various pages, including spelling errors. I've Also added a section for embarked troops, adding additional troop resources and support, which should be handy for any ship that carries embarked troops as it will now more accurately show the break down. Finally per user feedback that a seperate manual file would be helpful a word file with the manual has been added.
As always please leave any feedback including crew positions that you feel I have left off.
