Job: Update Drop Calc to New Verision, Check for Asset Mistakes

Assets cleared out that are being updated according to posted changelog. Thank you to whoever started to post the changed assets in the log!

There is a specific format that is easy to pick up. The calc also needs verifying. Some of the existing variatns are known to be wrong.

I can handle updating the calc, but extra eyes or help are much appreciated!

Update!
Goblin lookup is working. Now to wait for variant info to plug in equipment and weapons loadouts. If anyone want to help with that reply here and I will add it to the calc. Anybody that knows the calc format is free to add the info straight into calc as well!

Example
Goblin Prime Weapons 4 Small Laser 1 SRM 6 Equipment 4 Single Heatsinks Enhanced Optics TAG Ammo 1 ton SRM Cost 42100K

Big BV changes done. Consulted Glarrg for tank-related balance changes. Was overall pretty conservative on making big changes except for a couple assets that absolutely needed them and I’m content to just let the meta settle for a month and see how it goes with a lot of stuff changing next patch.

Shadowcat G updated to correct spot. WIll update calc Friday night.

Updating this thread. The drop calc is a top priority now. I will help lead the team on this but we need to do some serious maintenance to this excellent tool. I will ensure we get 1-3 done as quickly as time allows. The others are longer term goals.

  1. Top to bottom verification of variants and weapons/equipment.
  2. Add new weapons for BA
  3. Add BA Pod mech weapon
  4. Try to fix or improve the availability counter to not show repeat same variants to save on display space
  5. Update armor, weapons stats etc.
  6. Improve battelog reporting just a bit
  7. and the big one… maybe figure a way that we can change the formatting or use a script to convert the assset builds hidden sheet to automate between patches changes.
