Ok, I have started working on that but it's miles and miles from being done.

Gee Joe.......so sorry you don't like my lists but I didn't make them for you I made them for my use and for my use they work just fine as I have far better things to do than make nice neat lists for people to admire.

But if you have nothing better to do then have fun

Be happy you don't have to figure out where everything is like I did 20 years ago which is EXACTLY what you would be doing without the list that's in there now.

I can make specialist sheets like that; but only for specific nationalities.

Reason for this is I don't have time to constantly update the sheet with each release.

One thing I can do is the icon list for German units, to help support Das Reich; because it's such a big sprawling mod; and because it's a Total Conversion.

The thoughts behind this, is once it's converted to Excel, Don and Andy will use it from then on. It will make navigation of the lists much easier for everyone. So no need for the community to update it. This is a taking one for the team and community.

I don't NEED an "easier list to navigate".... I can find my way around this one and get any info I need in an instant and I don't need to wonder if some "helpful soul" made an error transposing data while making it "pretty"....so quit fooling yourself that this is something Andy and I would use because I won't and he never does........ I have NO difficulty find what I want with the existing list and I've been happily using it for 20 years.....if YOU have a problem with it it's YOUR problem, not mine.

And lose the nonsense attitude that you are "taking one for the team and community." good grief.........

Sorry you feel that way Don.

It's not about making it "pretty", never has been, it's about function. Using the search tool, is a huge benefit. That alone is my motivation for making the .txt file an Excel file.

Exclamation Re: Modder's Toolkit?

I load the official Icon lists with a text editor that has an excellent search feature and I've been using that to find whatever I need for nearly 2 decades. if you cannot "find" what you are looking for on the official Icon list you need to use a better text editor. It's not about Function......it's about the tools you use and if you don't use the correct tools you cannot function so what you propose is a considerable number of man-hours work because you are using tools that are not fully functional. The one I use IS so I don't need a redundant Excel version. Would you use MS paint to build an Icon??

For example, I can tell you in under 1 second that in WW2 there are 29 Icons with "panther" as part of their description in the 9069 Icon slots now available to me.... And one click on the search result list brings me to the one I want .....how would Excel do that any better ?? It won't which is why redoing the list in Excel is a complete waste of time and why I never bothered to do so.

Don
