Legacy Spreadsheet
« on: 2009 June 23, 00:05:32 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I made this for my own use so that I could track my Legacy Sims's progress.  My biggest concerns were remembering to do portraits of everyone, plus the 32(!) unique lifetime wishes.

Anyway - I thought it might be handy for others.  I'm not a spreadsheet whiz and this has undergone exactly ten minutes of testing, if you find errors let me know and I'll try to fix them.  There are no macros to worry about, just straight-up formulas.  Sample data for you to copy is included. Just fill in your own details in the pale yellow areas and it will add up your current score. I didn't include a column for 200,000 aspiration points.  I'd make up a good reason, but the reason is that I forgot. If you do hit 200K, you could just add another line for that Sim and give them a second "Yes" under the 100K column.

There is room for 200 Sims. Should be enough?

It's Excel 2003, but since it's so straightforward, I don't think anything is stopping me from saving it as an older version, if someone wanted it.

Edit:  Re-upload only has one sheet, might be openable in MS Works.  Otherwise, check out the Google docs version:

That is a nice spreadsheet, thank you for posting it here.  I printed out the rules and was planning on starting a legacy game today, this will be a great help in keeping track of things.

I use Webspiration (www.mywebspiration.com) to make a diagram of my Legacy family.  It's handy to have an expanding family tree in it.

I'm not sure about how Open Office deals with spreadsheet locks, but you SHOULDN'T be able to delete the wrong thing.  All of the fields are locked other than the ones for you to change.

Not bad. It's a little huge and formatted oddly, but I wouldn't have thought of naming names. Also, not enough colors! You should see my personal spreadsheets. It's like a rainbow threw up on them.

I do my family trees manually in Photoshop because I'm a masochist.This is my Riverview prosperity family tree:

If you are worried about messing stuff out, Google Docs handles revisions pretty well.

Yup, that's what I did.  Google Documents is a godsend.

Twice in my list of Lifetime Wants?  I'm not seeing it.  And yeah - now that I look again - it is huge. Those headers look like a child worte them with one of those fat pencils.  I'm no-one's idea of a designer, that's for sure.

I'll look at Google docs, too.  I've never used it before.  

Edit: Woah.  Google Docs is blowing my mind.  This is fantastic.

Pardon me, I haven't been sleeping. I somehow must have made it twice when I was moving things around. I checked your attachment and could only find them listed once.

Is there any way to make this compatible with Microsoft Works Spreadsheet?

A quick googling seems to indicate that Works can only open XLS files if they are limited to one sheet.  I took out the extras and re-uploaded, so give it a try.  Otherwise, there's a Google docs version that you can use, too. The formulas aren't protected on the Google version, so be sure to stick to the yellow areas when entreing data.

The problem my computer is having is due to the encryption, apparently. I'll use the google version.

Saladoor perhaps you should try following the instructions Zazazu gave in the legacy challenge thread? If you don't understand them there are tutorials on the internet that will explain how to use different programs, but I doubt anyone here is going to give you a very basic tutorial on image manipulation.
