Quite a specific resource, I have already discussed it in other threads. The basic idea is to provide easy access to addon config data within a spreadsheet to allow scripters to make custom variables that take into account several of the variables already present.

In other words, if you want to make a 'demoralisation-from-sniper-fire' script, you could write a formula such as D = Hit Damage x range - audible fire * visible fire, or whatever, ad-hoc example but just to explain. You would then apply this formula to every weapon in the database (which I will expand) and the values returned would then be used in a script. It is also a time saving resource, I have put in the hours so you dont have to, as well as a fairly interesting weapons comparison chart that allows you to size up addons against each other. I have given a couple of examples of '3rd party variables' to show you what can be don but, to be honest, i'm sure other people will come up with much better examples. I originally designed it for use with Spooners money and shop scripts, as I needed a way to fairly price all the weapons - I use a large number of weapon packs.

Is is possible for you to submit it in html instead of xls?

If I knew how to convert, then yes, but surely it would be inneffective in HTML?

Why inneffective?

Download doesnt work for me.
Its ineffective if you need the functions, i.e. filters and '3rd party variables'. However if you want to use it just as a comparison chart and a time saving tool then htm is fine.

If anyone can be bothered to fill in the gaps I left due to the likely onset of insanity, please let me know and I shall send you an unprotected version. The same applies to any addon packs that I have left out, notify me if you want them included.
