As far as I can tell, it does exactly what it says. It works fine, couldn't find any apparent crashing. You might want to look into splitting up the UI into tabs instead as the top and bottom share elements(Upkeep radio buttons) which can be a bit...

    Seems like a lot of unused space.
    Might want to reposition some stuff.

    Useful especially for Melee map making, helps calculating golds for players.

    The upkeep screws this calculation up, a player gets much less than what he harvests if he has a large army, Blake, you may wanna make a feature that takes this into consideration

    It is a useful and innovative tool that should have been created long time ago. 5/5

    @Blake8
    Make an option that allows you to account for upkeep, otherwise the calculations wont be accurate

    @Blake8 Regarding your question, I'm no expert at this but if you have a value that's not a number and you check if its bigger than 0 then the program will crash. So first check if the value in the textbox is a number than check if its bigger than 0. This should eliminate the errors.

    As far as I can tell, it does exactly what it says. It works fine, couldn't find any apparent crashing. You might want to look into splitting up the UI into tabs instead as the top and bottom share elements(Upkeep radio buttons) which can be a bit noisy when using it. Also the general aesthetics could be improved a bit.

    Other than that though, it works and it's approved!
