Welcome to Librarium Online!
Is there anything other than army builder or excel for tracking campaign stuff?
I'm considering working on a program that can track a number of player's gang's through out a campaign, automatically giving advances (unless it's a choice roll), trading post, etc etc.
I've also thought of trying to find a game engine that I could use to start working on a necromunda based turn based semi-mmo game.
There are a few necromunda excel rosters around the internet that auto calculate your
equip & xp Totals, then does the gang rating, but the gear & skills needs manualy typed,
however, if you did something like that, I'm sure you could add... drop down menus to the weapon list/model rank(ganger/leader/heavy/juve) so it could auto calculate the cost, then
from there, do another part where at the end of the game, you can put in the base xp gain
(ie: win at raid vs someone 510 higher: 17+d6), and it'll add it to each member (though
a program with check boxes might be better, so you can select which ones show up to actually
get the xp)(though also which ones need injury rolls)
from there, as long as it knows 'IF value x<20 & y=>21 THEN roll upgrade' if skill then it pop
up listing who for, & which table to choose from & it'll stick it on list
Territory would need a few options (ie: house, outland, redeption, ash waste) & just tick which
ones are being worked, then once value is calculated, it can wash it through based on numbers.
Rare trades are just d3+gangers-who-didn't-work-a-territory, so another random generator,
so say... 'do rare trades' and it could roll however many and give you listings for
reload: (base weapon cost)/2'
etc.. (as I can't remember other prices & randoms off top of head)
(though need to remeber to roll leader rolls & ganger rolls seperatly, as gangers + mung vase)
But yeah, overall you could probably do it in director, and it shouldn't need 'too much'
scripting, so Luck,
This is just a few months late, but ...
It's still very much a work in progress, but it's probably the only dedicated piece of Necromunda software you're going to find (unless you can get your hands on a copy of "Welcome to the Underhive"; I wrote that one too, and even I don't have a copy anymore). Well, technically it's a web application, not software, but same difference. Oh, and it's free.
P.S. It's Firefox-only, sorry (Internet Explorer is too much of a pain to deal with in a "for fun" project like this).

I know this thread is very old now but as its necromunda its still on main page may i add...
Does anyone know about an app for a smart phone which is a gang roster? Could be easily updated and taken with you to games, if not anyone got the tech know how?

I've recently created a web-based Necromunda Gang and Campaign manager site, depending on the smartphone it could possibly work. Though it's not a bad idea creating a smartphone friendly version at some point.
anything written for excel could be uploaded to google docs and most phones display google docs quite well.
PS Malo, that is quite some coding. I know someone who is working on something similar in VB, but that is very impressive. I've signed up!
No problem, it just got some decent upgrades and forums so it's slowly coming together.
