My Caverns KS Piece Calculator 3 Months, 1 Week ago  
If you are like me you spend hours poring over options and recalculating the number of pieces you can afford in DF kickstarters, for storage reasons and for the pure visceral need for more. So I was bored over the weekend and started working on a simple way to calculate the number of pieces I would be getting with various options in this massive offering. Things gradually got more and more complicated and by the time I was done I thought others could benefit from the work I put in. My main goal was to calculate the number of particular pieces but it was easy enough to add in a price per piece figure, if you care about those things.
I made the calculator in Excel and I am by no means skillful with it so I'm not looking for feedback on formulas but I'm open to constructive criticism. If you are more skilled than I, feel free to adapt, modify, and beautify this form and repost. I only ask that you credit me for the original.
You'll need to download and open to use the form as the online viewer doesn't allow for editing. It is fairly self-explanatory but let me know if you need any help. Wicked Caverns data has been input but I will update when it is finalized.
Enjoy!

***Updated with 2"x2" floor equivalency, taking into account 4"x4" tiles in the Floor Pack.***

Thank-you for sharing this calculator.

The amount of time and thought you put into it is very evident. From individual pieces being tallied, to domestic or international shipping options, to names of sets that link out to blown up photos of that set...this calculator has it all.

Really nice to use...so thanks again.

Thank you for sharing this, it's straight forward and easy to use.

I think the only thing I can say, from a layout standpoint, is that it took me a moment to find the instructions. (Which I had mostly figured out by then anyway.)

This spreadsheet is incredibly useful. Thank you so much for making this available. I appreciate your time and effort greatly.

That being said, I hope I can make the tough decisions and finalize my pledge soon, so I won't need to use it anymore!

Thanks again.

I think it is incredibly useful especially to have an inventory of individual pieces. I wish there was one for KS1 and Master Maze now! Thank-you for making it! Even with add-ons and some painted ones I am at $1.58 per piece. A little more than I expected, but I need some painted.

Re:My Caverns KS Piece Calculator 3 Months ago  
Thanks everyone. I'm glad others are getting use out of it. Perhaps I will add a new sheet for KS1 tiles when I have time. It wouldn't be that hard since KS1 was far less complex.

For those who want to build big rooms, I added a 2"x2" floor equivalency to calculate the total number of 2"x2" squares you can cover with floor tiles, including the 4"x4" tiles in the Floor Pack. If you click the '2"x2" floor equivalent' text, it will take you to a tile calculator where you can figure out how many floor tile you will need for a given space. It is currently set for 10'x10' gaming dimensions but you can change that easily. If I have time, maybe I'll try to add that function directly onto the spreadsheet.

Advice on functionality is always welcome. If I like your idea and I think I can add it to the spreadsheet, I will. Let's make this the best damn tile calculator ever. (Probably the only one!)

Your right KS1 shouldn't be that complicated, now doing one for all the Master Maze would be:( There are so many products, many of which are no longer being produced and others have changed in what they contain.
