Because I wanted to round to the nearest multiple of 5 for all the published ships, and forgot to put it back in the public release. :)

If you want to round to the nearest integer, unprotect the "Display" tab, select cell Q2, and alter the formula to read:

=MROUND(INDIRECT(T1&"!M5"),1)

Don't forget to protect the tab again when you're finished.

For some reason, I thought you had to enter the greater-than sign in front of the whole weapon name, not just the secondary mode 'name'. I can only blame it on the cold, my blithely skimming over the important part of the instructions and being used to the Shipyard.

Now without a gonging head, I've noticed a couple of minor issues with Drydock. I had a look at the Tables sheet and discovered two 'typos':

1) the dual weapon mount modifier is listed as 1.7, when it should be 1.8 (according to the rulebook)

2) the TR arc is listed as having an arc modifier (number of arcs+1) of 7, when it should be 6.

What that means is that my King Thicko-class battleship is incorrectly pointed. Argghhh...
