******* THIS PROGRAM ONLY RUNS UNDER LOTUS NOTES R6+ (Windows/Linux *******
******* A WIN32 BASED VERSION WILL BE AVAILBLE SOON!!!!! *******
I wrote a small program that allows you to select a unit (based on a god path) then apply any upgrades available to that unit based on the god path taken.
Then you select the upgrades you want and it re-calculates the units abilities. You can create as many units as you want and then compare 1vs1 (it tells you who would win in how many seconds and how many HP the winner would have left in a 1vs1 battle).
Currently I have not programmed to calculate myth/hero special attacks and recharges. Everything else pretty much is (like bonus modifiers hypaspists get vs. infantry, etc...)
Also, I haven't put the atlatean civ in it either (since i only play vanilla). Also, the base stats and the modifiers techs give are NOT as of the last patch for vanilla, however, the tables can easily be modified. In fact, you can change them to values you think they should of been to see if actually 'balances' the game more...
The program only works under Lotus Notes R6 or higher.
