thEClaw and Az are continuing to update the calculator. The new thread can be found here: http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,17371.msg302022.htmlFINAL UPDATE: With Diablo 3, Mechwarrior: Online, moving to a new apartment and going back to school all coming up, I can't see myself keeping this updated anymore. I've attached a .zip to this post containing the master .xlsx file I used, along with a few pages of documentation I wrote up to try to explain the functions and formulas. Feel free to modify it and use it in your own project if you want to.
VictorMorson came up with the idea of having a drop calculator spreadsheet on Google Documents. The reasoning was that it would be an easy way to save drop lists and share/edit them with the entire unit. So with that in mind, we set about making one which you can find right here: 0.5.5b calculators0.5.5b reference sheets
The Excel 2007 versions of the spreadsheets are also available in the file attached to this post.
All data is now read via script directly from the game files. Everything should hopefully be accurate now, but let me know if you spot any errors.
