This is a tech cost calculator for the old Avalon Hill board game Advanced Civilization, http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/177/advanced-civilization.
It's really simple to use. After buying tech, check the boxes next to the techs you bought. Credits are then applied towards remaining techs, and the costs updated.
Long-click a tech to see a description of it.
There is also a Shopping Cart mode, in which you can add techs to a cart, see the total cost, and buy them all at once.
Designed to speed up the tech purchasing stage of the game by performing the tedious math of credit computation for you. Use that extra time to scope out the game state, pretend you're doing math out loud while your opponents' are trying to add up their credits in their head, or to get some potato chips and ding dongs from the communal food area.
Visiting any sponsor should hide the ad panel for a week.
Please leave feedback and comments especially if you find any errors in the tech cost computation. Tech cost computation is based off of McGran's 4-in-1 player aid uploaded to BoardGameGeek May 3rd, 2011, which I've independently verified to be correct.
This app is localization-ready. If you're bilingual, I need your help translating into non-English languages. I've made publicly editable Google docs for each language region this app is currently installed in. https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B7rYS8yTwz-4NjFkMGM5MzktMzNhZS00OTNjLWJiODYtMWI1MTdmZTU0ZjE3&hl=en_US If you speak English and another language, and you'd like a version of this app in the other language, please go translate strings and let me know when you're finished. I'll incorporate the language localization in a future release.
No idea when iPhone version actually coming. "Soon" does not seem likely at the moment.
