UMS Assistance FAQ Topic:

This information is intended to reduce the number of easily answerable questions posted in the
Use Map Settings Mapmaking Assistance topic. It contains a variety of miscellaneous information
about a multitude of mapmaking topics for easy reference.
(Personally I think the wiki is easy reference, but apparently some people don't know about them.)

If you think you have a good idea to submit to this thread, PM an UMS Assistance mod or GM.

If you believe any of the information in this reference material is false, PM UMS Mapping Assistance moderation.
(I'm human, I could make some errors.)

sraw531 -- Lanthanide
Lanthanide shouted: it is a bit fiddly to get it working, especially as text triggers use quotes around unit names like "Terran Marrine" and so you have to double-escape them in excel like ""Terran Marine"" which can get annoying
You also could use special characters or something that excel doesn't normally use (nor function based off of), and then do a replace all once you turn it back into text form. Though im sure thats nothing new.

sraw531 -- Lanthanide
Lanthanide shouted: use ='text here ' & A1 & ' finishing text' to get excel to reference the content of another cell (in this case A1) as plain text within another fragment of plain text
thanks Lanthanide, I never thought to use excel. It will probably still be difficult since its not just the conditions changing, but also the actions in a non-standard way (picture-based). Still, it will probably save some time.

Jack -- Also, can I use the no true scotsman fallacy to claim that I actually am a scotsman, even though I am neither scots nor lived there ever?
