Welcome to the home of HBS
HBS is a battle calculate for the very popular game planetarion.
So there are already a crapload of them around.. Yes there is, but either they got a web interface (I'm kinda not fond of that.. ;) or only run in windows. Another thing that I really wanted was a battle calc that supported different fleets with different eta. =)
HBS (which stands for harvalen's battle system), is written using the Qt library (this is not QuickTime, visit www.trolltech.com if you want more info.) and should compile and run under all platform supported by Qt (version 3.0.0 and later) and got a ANSI/ISO compliant c++ compiler.
At the moment only a source tarball is provided, I might add a statically linked binary for linux/x86 though..

Not sure if I will update the battlecalc for next round.. Need to implment dynamic targetting.. Might do it, might not.. we'll see..

My computer is kinda instable atm (and has been for a while, some strange hardware problem), that's why the development is stalled. I'm using the time to clean up the code though, but I doubt it'll be fully functional this round.
The cvs version does have a few new features though, check here to see some of those, I could make a tarball if you someone want it.

Released 0.3 now. Some of the changes includes shows capping, score loss for the planet, some minor bugfixes. You now need to press enter after you edited a roid type or score, if you forget to press enter the changes will be lost. (This is hopefully just temporary though, I want to get it to work like the ship editing, but I also want to focus on more important featres first)
Adding a new screenshot too.
oops.. Forgot to change the version string, 0.3.1 released ;)
double oops.. An evil bug in the score calculation.., so 0.3.2 now ;p (Ohh, might be good to state that lost roids isn't included in the scoreloss calculations atm, so the screenshot is correct. Planning to add this soon.)
It now removes score when the planet loses roids, if anyone really cares I'll make a 0.3.3 releases. If not I'll just wait for 0.4. So if you want it you'll have to spend some time with feedback.. ;p
