Ralph, you know if you save the equipment database in a datafile that can be read by excel then all you would need is a spreadsheet template and use excel for the database editor rather than fool around with BioEd.
As GD pointed out, no scenario uses all the equipment types so if one needs to "add" equipment to the list, you could easily tell users to overwrite unused equipment already in the database rather than try to add new equipment by tacking it on the end.
The only new function (in the game) you would need is a function to ensure that both parties of a PBEM game are using the same equipment database.
Are there any reasons why it's not that simple?
The other complication we're working on is that Norm filled the equipment database with many arcane factors that have often been hard to decipher. Bear with us.
..or simply don't do anything, the "smoke" flag being the best example, altho for arcane i do wonder why "road only" is given to so many vehicles then cancelled by "agile"..
..t3 with a BioEd = the Art of War for all periods, a game that goes beyond "Bench-mark" , "Classic", or 'ultimate"and may well just deserve the advertising formula of The Game..
..anyway, having solved the welding problem, it's back to the "ecologically sound sewerage for social housing systems in a 3rd world environment", " coffee cultivation methods " and "how to grow a decent red wine-grape on the equator" projects...
