Awesome! Thanks for sharing dude, I'll get all the updates merged over to Google Docs sometime within the next week for sure. Once that's done, I'll post up the original Excel document too for folks who want to use it in an external spreadsheet application, since Google Docs loses some things in translation when you import/export.
A nice thing to add would be the ability to handle data like "2xClan_ER_Medium_Beam_Laser; 1xClan_DualStreakSRM4; " to set the weapons available for a vehicle. Again, that data comes directly from the game files and an update to a newer version of MWLL would only take a couple of minutes with this.
Yeah, something like this would be nice, but I have no idea what would be a good way to handle it. If I had knowledge of Python I might be able to modify the script you're talking about (although I didn't even know it existed, actually) to convert it to a more user-friendly format, but I'm not sure how else to do it.
In any case, just having a tool like that to extract the mech info from the game would make this trivially easy for me to keep updated, even after big patches. Going through the document and making the changes doesn't take me more than an hour or two, the really time consuming part was painstakingly going through the in-game buy menu and copying down the data.
Another nice thing would be a combobox (a popup list or whatever else it may be called) wherever one can enter a vehicle name. It is not always clear how to spell the names of vehicles correctly.
This is definitely possible, and I toyed with it in the past, but I ended up ditching it because dropdown lists don't work with Google Docs. Another problem I had with it was that the list got to be pretty long with all the vehicles that are in the game and could be pretty unwieldy. I messed around with adding drop down menus for Clan/IS selection and weight class selection too to narrow it down better, but after that it was just so much slower than typing it in manually.
If I could easily add some type of auto-complete where it would drop down a list of suggestions based on what you entered, I totally would do that, but I don't know of any way to do that.
