I remembered this build tool and tried to download it again but all the links seem dead. The only one I tried that linked to a download at all is the first one in this post, but when I tried to open it, it was completely broken. None of the original drop down menus existed. Does anyone have a working copy?
Please let me know if this works now or of any major issues. Thanks.
As I have tried and experimented on it, the port to the xlsx format just won´t work properly. So use the 2007 version, that one should open on any Excel version. I am still trying to fix/port it, but this may take a while.
Alright, I found the error with the 2016 (xlsx) version. I had to redo all the dropdown menus and the formating of the template spreadsheet completly, but now it works as intended with modern Excel versions. Enjoy.
That achived I will, from now on, only update the XLSX version. You can download the most recent one here Character Buildtool
HINT: If you download the file and get an error opening it under Windows 10, that is normal. Just make a right click on the file and open the "porperties". At the bottom of the new appearing window, you will see something like: Security: This file is from another computer. The access has been restricted.... Allow it and you can use it.
Updates in this version:
- The boni to DWDs got worked in (AC, Stats) - Half-Goliath and Half-Cloud Giant stats updated - Edited the XRs as in the latest update - Added Deathless XR subrace - some minor error fixes
Hello everyone. Another update to the spreadsheet is done and I´m sure you´ll like it.
Now you will quickly see, what your skills, saves, ab and ac will be like under penalties and how much your dc, elemental and physical immunities will be droped by them, making it yet again easier to finetune your characters for the latest areas.
I added a calculation for layer penalties to the sheet based on the limbo hardmode pens which are like layer 12. You can adjust the pens based on your prince and EE Hardmode wins. And/or, if you want to see the pens on another layer like last map of an abyss run (like nessus), just add 3 in that field. Paragon layer adaption feats and the half-moly boni will be recognized automatically.
So as an example: You have 3 prince wins (graz't, orcs and saving pelor) and you want to see your penalties in nessus, you put in 6 in the marked field (3 for the prince wins and 3 for the limbo hard mode compensation).
- added/corrected "Lash of Hatred" - corrected "Gnomish Inventor" - several bugfixes - some changes to the paragon section
As mentioned, Pelor gives a penalty reduction. Limbo Hardmode also gives a layer reduction, only it is 1, not 3. A player can have up to 5 layer reductions as a result of any combination of up to 5 Prince wins, Limbo Hard Mode, or Mechanus, add in Environmental Adaptivity, and you reach 8 layer reductions as a maximum possible. Also, Limbo Hardmode is 16 layer penalties I believe, and normal is 12.
Update (DOWNLOAD latest version) -HP is now calculated correctly past 60. -(Limbo) penalties are (as far as playersided possible) confirmed and reflected in the sheet.
The HP calculation was completly off beyond level 60, which was rather annoying. So I dived in it again and got it fixed this morning. It is about 99% accurate now, but the error margin is within 10 HP, so it can be ignored.
Update (Latest Update Version 2.4) - Layout change of the general planing template (it´s now 1-80 and the calculations are beneath them) - added option to select SF und ESF skill bonus to add to the skillpoint calculation - added specific bonus feats for GIs depending on class spread
