Renaming the file causes errors.

I've renamed the file before and never had a problem. I'll rename it from Spaceships.xslx to Spaceship Design.xslt to put it into my templates in MS Office and never had a problem.

Weird. Tried again and no extra errors occurred. But it seems that the OO errors are different from time to time. Either way, failed to get the DR of my armor.

I wonder if there's some weird internationalization thing going on there; the Open Office version is working perfectly fine for me. I've not tested it as thoroughly as the Excel version, since I do all my writing in Excel then simply convert to Open Office, but I've not seen any significant errors in the tests that I have run.

I vaguely remember the sheet (the one with TL4^, downloaded right after my post about Divergent ships) showed armor values for TL4^ Wood and Eatherwood at SM5 or so. Now it doesn't.

I'm not seeing that at all. Both Wood and Etherwood give appropriate DR for their SM, from SM5 on up (unless streamlined, minimum SM6 if streamlined). Now, Wood I did have to do a little trick with, since it's TL^ at SM10+. If you are changing the TL or SM of the ship you may need to reselect the Wood Armor to switch between the TL0 and TL0^ version of Wood armor. OTOH, Etherwood is always TL1^, so shouldn't be affected by that behavior at all.

Are you fully updated in Open Office to 3.2.1?

I temporarily abandoned my OO attempts, since I'm about to upgrade to Ubuntu 10 anyway. Tried out in MS Office. Am I doing something wrong, or are TL4^ Unguided Rockets not supported?

I was trying to make the spaceship equivilant of the F/A-18A and F/A-18E with SM+4 and SM+5 and I noticed on the 1.20 version that if the top ship is SM+4 the bottom ship uses the same limitations on Weapon Mounts.

Will you please recommend procedures/tools for designing deck plans?

I've found and fixed the issue.

This thread is primarily about my Spaceships spreadsheet. If you want to discuss designing deck plan please feel free to start a new thread to do so.
