Just checked and, although it is saying v1.02, the current Drydock is v1.03. I'll enter some of my ships through it and make sure they match my p+p designs

Thanks for the help bekosh, I'd have no idea how to 'fix' it myself...:)

Good news: after testing it, the drydock seems okay (although I only gave it a couple ships to work through). Bad news: I realised that I'm really bad at using Directional Shielding. After first miscalculating the SU requirement (by not following all the steps listed) I then, for the re-design of the DEFSATs, instead of dividing by 6-EqSR, I divided by the EqSR, thus making a colossal error that ended up costing them 5-11 CRat more than they should. This experience has taught me to be wary when doing Directional Shielding...

I have not released the OpenOffice version for two reasons. First, I am not done testing it with multiple ship designs. Second, I customized my DryDock, and do not have a "standard" version:

* Changed Tech Level 2 to 3
* Renamed "Screens" to "Armor"
* Added Penetrating weapon ability, like Piercing but against Armor/Screens
* Added ship primary systems for critical hit effects: Bridge, Reactor, Life Support

Once I test what I have, I plan to create the standard version. If anyone is interested, please just be a bit more patient.

Thank you for confirming the DryDock version.

I tried the drydock and had some problems. OK, the weapons are sorted in alpha order.
But, after filling the various items, the display result is quite disappointing. I have twice the boxes for the hull and weapons, for example, other lines I don't know why there are here (from #57 to #81)
Also, whatever the weapons I install, the SU used aren't modified.

Drydock's been working fine for me; I must have cranked out a couple hundred ships by now.

I'd simply delete and redownload the file, start with a fresh copy, see what happens.

Ok, will try, but my copy is fresh from this week. BTW, it seems you can't cut and paste the display to include the ship in an excel file.
(edit: Tried that and the result is identical)

I noticed that the display sheet is already wrong (two hull sections, etc.)

You need to hide the unused rows using the filter in cell S1. Make sure only the "1" value is selected, and all the duplicate rows will be hidden.

Did this. Thanks, it works!
In the end, I use the drydock to create ships (normal) and I more or less cut and paste the ressilt on another excel sheet. I sligthly improved the reading but very slighty.
