Re: The Shop Tool
I'm not sure when I'll get around to updating the tool for the new items and such, but that's probably all it will be. No changes to the (Un)Linked feature. You can turn off the linking by just setting new buy prices for all the commods in the pricing section of your shop and it will use those instead of the linked ones.
I make a new copy of the sheet once I open the 2nd stall in an industry. My first IM might be on Alpha, and my 1st Apoth on Turtle, but they'd be in the same sheet. When I open my 2nd IM on Turtle, then I'd start a new sheet. You might be able to actually keep two copies of the same stall in the sheet by making a copy of a sheet but I can't vouch for it. Theoretically it will work, but be prepared to see something break. Make a backup first. :)
"Profits" is a tricky issue. When I wrote it, I assumed that poe in the system is mostly fixed. Poe comes in from the player and counts toward debt. Poe leaves to the player's pockets and subtracts from debt. The remaining poe is either in the form of Coffers, Raw Materials or Finished Goods waiting to be sold. If you keep up with record keeping, the "Net Worth" section should continue to grow over time if you are doing well. The individual numbers such as amount invested in stock, finished goods and coffers will fluctuate.
The column marked "profit" in the finished goods area reflects real profit on that single item. If you are using the cost/labor_unit feature, rent is included in the cost of making an item and this profit number is a "true" profit as nearly all costs are accounted for. If you aren't using it, the profit is derived from the sell price - cost of commods/labor. By not using this feature, it's possible to have all your items set to make a profit but you're actually losing Net Worth because of the lost of poe from rent.
It's all pretty complicated, but hopefully this helps you out some.
If you'd like to make translations, it's easy to add to an upcoming version (whenever that is). Just fill in a new column on the translations tab and mark it Dutch at the top and send me the file via email (jasonthedce AT gmail DOT com).
Unfortunately, the tool no longer translates into OpenOffice easily. You'd be better off working with Faulkston/TMBTC's shop management tool which is written in OpenOffice. It can be found here.
