Planetary Config Spreadsheet

  1. Nov 2, 2003 #1
    I finished the Planetary Config Spreadsheet I have been working on during my down time at work.
    Well, finished the first version of it, anyway.

    I managed to do it all with no VBScript, so you don't have to worry about macro viruses.

    If you are interested and you have some time, I would love some feed-back.
    If you think it is handy and easy to use or not.
    What else you think I should include in it.
    Any suggestions regarding layout or content at all would be helpful.

    Of course you are free to have a copy, and you can give to anyone you wish if anyone would want it.
    Just make sure they know that I don't guarantee the results and I still want to perform more error checking and testing on it.

    If you would like to help me out, you could check if it is accurate.
    I think it is accurate, I double checked all the equations, plus I checked the output of a bunch of configurations manually and came up with no errors.
    I would appreciate any feedback/input you would like to offer.

    The worksheet is protected, but if you want to see any of the equations I used or anything just let me know, and I will post them here.


    I plan on expanding on some of the functionality.

    I want it to show planet configuration and placement:
    Such as how many planets can you place evenly spaced.
    What your angular spacing increment would be if your planets can't be evenly spaced.

    I also plan on adding more accute configurability (such as adjustable centerlines) and possibly more interactivity.
    Doing it without VBScript really limits what I can do.
    I may have to abandon trying to keep it VBScript-free to build some of the additional stuff into it.

    Thank you.
