Evony Hitlist Generator

Mix an engineer with an on-line time burner based on numbers like Evony and you end up with all sorts of useful spreadsheets. This particular one generates a list of NPC targets automatically based on the location of your cities. (Well, you do have to input the NPC locations once, then it's automatic. I'm not going to give you my list of NPCs.) You can input the maximum distance from each city allowed, the number of heroes that you want to be used from each city, and the NPC level that you want to attack.

This is especially useful if you have a lot of farming to do from a lot of cities. Sure, static lists can work, but what if you have all of your heros in one city busy defending elsewhere and want to reassign their target NPCs? This spreadsheet makes it all automatic.

There is also a useful feature that tells you how close each of your cities are to a specific location. So when an ally asks if you can send help, you can quickly determine which of your cities is the closest.

This spreadsheet is written in Excel with Excel macros, so you can only use it if you have a copy of Excel. I can't help you if you're using another program. Perhaps someone else can.

Try it out and let me know what you think. I am working on a next version that will make it easier to input NPC locations ... and will map them all out, too, in a remarkably overcrowded Excel format.

(And for those of you with a real life that don't know what Evony is, just move along. Nothing to see here.)
