Calculating Housing Appeal can be tedious, but you can't really optimize a housing block without understanding the numbers. This worksheet automates the Paste Special - Add feature of Excel and provides macros for all of the Glyphy structures, and several others such as Avenues, Boulevards, and Agoras in various orientations.

Thank you! The link through to Marvl's site is just the thing! I am an avid player of all city building games and the info on various aspects of building blocks on this site is an eye opener. Thanks for sharing with those of use who play for the enjoyment of it with very limited time.
