If you would like to design your cities before jumping into action read on....

I was wondering if I could have some sort of design on paper or on Excel then my cities would be a little better so I came out to write a tool to dump to a spreadsheet the more important elements on a Caesar 3 .map file.

C3TerrainExplorer would create a spreadsheet to show the main details from a map file such as people entry and exit points, river entry and exit points, invasion points and the following elements: rocks, water, meadow, elevation, ramps, trees and roads.

The spreadsheet would also show those tiles where a 2x2 house will form if the tile is the north-most tile of the 4 lots.

Here is a screenshot of a tiny map 40x40 created just for testing the tool:



Here is a picture about how to read the different colors in the spreadsheet:



The UI looks like this:

Your post doesn't have links to the pictures (where the viewer, if desired, could click), it actually displays the pictures.

Updated:
I uploaded a new version (1.1) with the following change:

I added a file 'config.properties' where you can set the location of your .map files and the output path for the spreadsheet. Please select the option Help->Help in the UI for details.

When you unzip the downloaded file you would get two files: C3TerrainExplorer.jar and config.properties. Keep them together in the same directory when using the application. Thanks.

This your tool doesn't work for me. Your tool to schedule increase/decrease of trade work's fine, so I hope Java isn't problem. This one only creates empty xlsx file and freeze working. Maybe some setting in my Excel2013 or Win7 is wrong.
