After I released my Excel Ship Calc I got a lot of feedback from people regarding how much they liked and used it. Whilst it is a good offline tool I found it rather limited since not everyone has Excel 2013. Reading the comments on the thread about the Excel ship calc I had to release a few versions to get it working for the majority of people. Clearly this was not feasible as updating all these versions was not going to work.

So a few days ago I was adding in squadron support for the new excel version and I decided to make an online version of it whilst I waited for the event. Now, after a few days of hard coding and minimal sleep I would like to introduce to you my new online version of Vega Ship Calc. 

The updated Excel calc is also available for download from the website. Over the coming days I will be adding a few more features to the site, so it is still in development, but it is now fully functional. Enjoy :smile:

    This is absolutely phenomenal. I use your spreadsheet a lot and I have a feeling I will be using the online version even more than the spreadsheet. Thanks for all the effort you put into this - it is definitely appreciated.

    Amazing! Absolutely love the layout. I have a few (difficult) suggestions:
    - Make a way to compare the stats of two ships
    - Allow us to see the stats of a slot without having to put it in first. Maybe you can do this by adding a scroll-over feature to see the stats.

    Things I am currently working on

    - Adding in mouse over stats for the items to go on the ships
    - Making a feature to link a build from a url so you can share your layouts with friends.

    I have just moved the server to my personal server rather than a web host; It seems they cant handle the demand :wink: 

    It should take a while for the dns to update. So please be patient with it; it will be back online shortly.

    Considering only a few people have read this post I don't understand why the site is getting so many hits. I have had to take it off this host because it took down all my other websites. Apparently I have a limit of 20 on the server it was on. I was running at over 4000 earlier. So I take it thats not a good thing. Slightly over my quota lol

    I'm just glad its working. You have no idea the problems today with the server, still looking through the server logs to figure out what's going on. My hosting company asked me to take it down. (Burnt my dinner as well, forgot it was in the oven, trying to fix this). Maybe kixeye would host it, that would solve the problem. 

    I'm no expert but I find it hard to believe this site had this many hits in 5 hours

    I know it was posted on the BV and AS FB pages by some people, that might have been why you were getting so many hits

    Well more bad luck, the internet connection to the server I moved it to has broken. Earliest time slot I can get an engineer to fix it is midday tomorrow, so it will be offline or intermittent until then

    1 Small Problem. The mass for somthing is worng. It said that it would all fit, but when I got around to building the carrier, it didnt fit. These 2 builds are identical. Could you please look into it after you fix the server issues?

    All fixed Destroyer of Worlds. I updated the excel version too and added in Wave Driver II repair times. It was not taking squadron mass into account when adding on thrusters, so it only affected carriers.

    Just incase anyone else notices this sometimes the calc is off a little bit, maybe 1 point. I tried to figure out what the problem is, I thought it might be a rounding issue on my end but after careful investigation it seems someone cant add up properly. I will submit this as a bug report; so maybe they will fix it.  So if your stats are off in game by 1 don't blame me. unless well it is my fault; then blame Skeedor; since everyone blames him for something.
