View Full Version : Would anyone be interested in a Tax Generation Program?

This would basically be a Windows app that could be used to generate the Tax collectionf for a realm. I could also build a small database of all the realms so that you would have the defaults to start with. The database would be editable so that you could modify your realms as they grow. It would basically be something similar to the Maintenance thing that runs each Domain Turn in the Birthright PC game.

Love this sort of stuff. Very useful.

Could it do Law Claims?? That seems to be a common problem with the tax rollers I've already seen in the past. It would be nice to finally have law claims functioning.

Shouldn't be a problem. I may start this over Christmas. If no one else uses it I will. I hate rolling and searching the table for the tax rates, Law claims etc. Even writing it down and looking it up is a pain. If I can get it to a state where you simply click "Collect Taxes" for a province then Hoo-rah! The only work you would have to do is keep up with the level changes from Create, Rule and Contest.

This would be most excellent Lawgiver and a nice post Christmas gift to many of us!

It would definitely help out my realm. As you know, I have a slight income vs. outgo problem. So bring on the taxes.;)

I have built the database for the app. I should be starting the user interface screens tomorrow.

This thing has been gnawing on me constantly... I wish I had more free time to allocate to it.

I think we all wish that we had more time. Keep up the good work Lawgiver!

I've been working quite a bit of overtime at work and with the holidays I haven't even be able to look at it in over a week.

I know how you feel, I haven't even been on line in over a week!

I know. I surpassed you in number of posts while you were away ;)

Yep and you are making it near impossible to even just catch up ;)

I try :P

I was hoping for another star at 300, but no dice.

I've got most of the basic screens laid out and have finished most of the basic "business rules" (i.e. your holding level can't exceed the province level, etc.) Once I finish the business rules I'm going to work on the basics of the tax generation.

Its hard to find time to do too much. I've been trying to do it on my lunch breaks at work and work on the 3e development at night. Perhaps I'll have more time this weekend when my sister-in-law is visiting (AHHH!!!!! :P)

Perhaps if you didn't spend so much time posting on this site you could get it done ;)

I don't normally post while at work. And I don't normally work on the prgram at home since its to much of a pain to email all the files I need back and forth everyday. Sending them on the weekends is plenty. Besides you caught up on posts enough already!

Ive got the basic guts working. It can compute provincial taxes, temple/guild income, traderoute, and lawclaims! [It still needs some in depth testing to make sure...I've only done a portion of Talinie's realm]

Now to get the financial data in a presentable report format for veiwing...
