Drydock Unity - Dual Mode Weapons help

Postby ericphillips » Fri Jun 09, 2017 10:40 pm

Hi:

I downloaded the Drydock spreadsheet and I cannot figure out how to add a dual-mode weapon. The instructions do not help me much. I put the secondary mode on the line below the primary mode on the weapons tab, but when I select it on the ship it dies not appear.

Also, is there a way to customize the ship systems?

Greetings. In the current spreadsheet it'll look something like this:

Laser Cannon
Laser Cannon>Beam Mode

So the weapons have to have the same name, and for the second mode you add a ">" (no quotes) and the second mode's name; no space before or after the ">". This might help:

[Weapon Name]
[Weapon Name]>[Second Mode]

Also, don't forget to sort all the weapons so that they are in alphabetical order. (I simplify and just highlight all the cells I'm using and push the A-Z button on the Sort tab.) If you don't sort the weapons, it won't pull up the proper info.

Also, not quite sure what you mean about "customize the ship systems". Do you mean creating new ship systems?

Yes, I would like to add new systems. I have unprotected the sheets in Excel and looked for the ranges that would hold such a thing, but I do not see it. I want to add three systems to fit in with the setting.

Ah. Ship systems are in the Tables Tab (you'll have to unhide it). I've only mucked around in there briefly (and not with ship systems).
